I am going to try and duplicate my PixelFIX photo restoration blogger blog here on the Weebly platform. I am interested to see if it has any impact on my page views and google ranking. I will maintain my blogger version as well just in case I wish to revert back to there.
Paul’s wife wanted to get this wonderful family photo saved. The sun had almost faded this one completely away. I used Photoshop to recolour parts of the image and used hue and saturation layers to recover the salvageable parts. Paul was very happy with the restoration.

When Summers were always hot and the lemonade was also fresh! This wonderful old photo was sent in by Glenda and in desperate need of some restoration. There were thousands of tiny cracks and some large creases that has destroyed some of the photo. But with the magic of Photoshop and also 5-6 hours of slow and steady work. I was able to full restore this wonderful old photo so that the memories of those wonderful summers could be shared for many years to come.
Nicole contacted me with a strange request and I was happy to help. As part of a gift for someone, she wanted part of a map super imposed on top of a photo taken through the windscreen of a car. I was able to brighten up the image add some more colour and using a darker colour blending layer I was able to drop in the map detail and voilà ! One photo restored and retouched to make a wonderful gift for Christmas.
Thank u so so much for all your help!! – Nicole

Burt Munro is a New Zealand legend and this black and white photo was brought to me for restoration and printing. Burt was the world record holder on his hand built and modified ‘Indian’ motor bike. This photo had multiple creases and a large yellow stain that needed removal and touch up. The final restored photo is now much cleaner and will be enjoyed for many years to come.

Thelma wanted to create something special for a relative in america and between us this is what we created. There were 7 old photos, in black and white and some in colour that all needed to be restored before we could make them into this wonderful collage.
In Photoshop I increased the contrast and clarity of the main colour photo and created masks for the inserts. then in separate layers I added the restored black and white photos to the collage. This has now become a unique and treasured gift.
This wonderful photo was sent to me from Pearoa by Bianca. The phot has lots of red and orange spots covering most of the photo, which has really spoilt this photo. Combined with the fading and discolouration it is badly in need of restoration. Using Photoshop I was able to use the channel mixer in black and white mode to knock out most of the red blotches then made a copy of the original image in colour mode and layered that over the top and blured it. This gave just a few large blotches to deal with. which I was able to clone and heal away in colour mode. A few coloured layers were used to help out in the sky and white areas. The results are really very good and Bianca was very happy with her restored photo.
It looks great my parents will be happy, thank you so much I have just transferred the payment now so you should receive it soon.
Thank you again

Abby wanted me to restore this wonderful old army photo for her dad. This was going to be a great Christmas present. I was able to remove the old sellotape marks and fix up the blemishes and fading. I also restored this back to black and white and then improved the clarity and contrast.
They look amazing, I had no idea that they would be able to be salvaged to such great quality, thanks so much! I can’t wait for my Dad to see them, I wish I had of had them done years ago so that my Poppa could have seen them too. – Abby
Richard sent me this photo by email to restore just the lady and not worry about all the damage around the edges. But I suggested that I cut out the couple and make a new background and that would keep this as a complete photo. So using Photoshop I was able to convert to B&W and using different channel mixes was able to remove all the yellow blotches. I then cleaned up the other damage and created a new background layer. Richard was very happy with the results.
