The photos were in varying conditions but all needed to be digitized to enable him to share the story and the journey of his ancestors. Below is an official portrait of the man in question Lincoln Lee. It required the most work being very badly faded, suffering from very bad silvering and wide spread scratches and other surface damage. Using the hue and saturation to increase the colour i was then able to mask off the various areas of silvering damage and repair them in Photoshop. Patience and lots of spot removal and a black and white adjustment layer brought this portrait back to life. A new background completed the picture and the restoration was a success .

The Restored-1 image, which had all that work, is just stunning. Really, a complete transformation.
Hi Richard, Great job.
Richard did a great job restoring an old family photo of my grandmother as a child and also scanning a number of other old photos in. Quick, professional and really great to deal with. Will definitely use again and recommend him. – Hamish
The final restoration is now back with Andrew and his wife in Auckland and being enjoyed once more.

Most happy, thanks

When Lance brought me this sad looking photo from his companies offices for restoration, it had almost disappeared! For some unknown reason the original photo had all of the background removed. So a lot of Photoshop retouching was needed to replace the background insert a new sky, houses, wires, telegraph poles and walls. The original photo photo also had been hand coloured, this also need to be restored. Below is the finished result.
