Christmas Holiday Opening Hours

 

Christmas is here!

Theresa wanted to get this wonderful old school photo restored for her Mother. This was a big task as the photo was very badly damaged. The photo arrived in 2 pieces! Stitching this back together was not easy as the edges had frayed. But after hours of restoration using a number of different layers I had something that was looking fantastic.

Margret from Auckland brought in this wonderful old photo for restoration. It was in a poor state and in need of some PixelFIXING. Using Photoshop I was able to remove the discolouration using hue and saturation layer combined with black and white adjustment layer. Then it was mostly a few hours of cloning and healing to remove the numerous small blemishes.

Hi Richard,  Great job.

Tony had competed at a very high level but only had this very small ‘contact sheet’ image from  which he wanted me to make a decent sized photo print. The black and white contact print also had some damage and neg number in written on the image. a staple mark also needed to be removed. But after restoring this photo in photoshop I was able to produce and proper sized photo for Tony to put on display.

Looks good,

Rachael brought me this very badly damaged photo that had become stuck to the glass because of moisture. Unfortunately she had tried to remove it from the glass and in the process removed part of the surface from the photo. It was also very badly faded and had hundreds of tiny cracks running through the surface.
In Photoshop I added a new background, used the stamp and healing brush to work away as much of the cracks and surface damage as possible then worked on replacing the colour.  Over 3 days and 12 hours later we had this.

Over Christmas I had quite a few orders for canvases. This one below was from Georgina from Auckland who wanted to give her boyfriend this wonderful photo as a Christmas gift. I had to clean up the image and remove the glare in Photoshop. I also created a new background for the photo as well.

Hi Richard
It looks great! Thank you

Recoloured old classic

Chelsea brought in this wonderful but tired old photo. This is a classic example of an old studio photograph that was originally black and white and then was painted by hand with colour. The colour for this little boy had faded very badly over the many years and was in need or recolouring. I first cleaned up the image with clone and healing tools and then repainted the photo with different colour and soft light layers in Photoshop.


It looks AMAZING ! You have done such a awesome job i love how you have left the background as is. Thank you.
