Repeat orders

 

Kura came to me all the way from The Cook Islands last year with this very sad looking photo that was on the verge of total decay. I was able to reconstruct the missing pieces remove the red colour cast, fill in all the cracks and return this photo to a beautiful work of art that could be enjoyed again. Indeed this year she has just order 2 extra copies. 

Is this the biggest restoration this year?

 

At over a meter high and with extreme fading discolouration and multiple areas of surface damage to such a detailed and colourful photograph, this must rank as the largest restoration job this year. Abigail is herself a photographer and  brought me this wonderful family portrait to be digitally restored on behalf of her father.

The level of difficulty is very high because of the detail and colour. If this had of been black and white then it may have been a different story. But although it took nearly 3 weeks to complete and a number of proofs were made this is the final restoration. It took 34 layers in Photoshop which included numerous curves adjustment layers to tackle the discoloured highlight areas which had turned blue. The finished restoration was then framed and delivered back to the Abigail’s father.

Her father actually called me once he received the finished restoration to personally thank me. It is now hanging back up on the wall is being enjoyed once more.

Legless!!

 

Sami Brought me this wonderful old photo for restoration. He had thought that the photo had been lost forever. But when clearing out behind his fridge one day, there it was. After 20 years it was found. But in a sorry state. the entire lower half of the photo had to be completely rebuilt. So using Photoshop and by stealing parts from other photos I was able to rebuild the legs and the feet to complete the photo and make a wonderful framed photo to go back on display. The frame was from factory frames.

Is this good as New?!!

 

Ann Sent me through this wonderful photo and it was in pretty bad condition. It was black and white but with many creases and surface damage which really did spoil the photo. Without restoration it would have eventually come apart and be lost forever. But using Photoshop and many hours of patient work, we have restored this to be good as new!

Thanks for an awesome job.   It is my mother and eldest sister and is precious as we have very few photos of mum so young.  I’m going to put up on Ancestry.com

Removing the scribbles

John asked me to remove the pen marks and scribbles from this wonderful old water colour painting that his grandfather had done back in the first world war. Using a combination of channel mixing and the spot removal tool i was able to completely remove the blue pen marks and restore this painting back to its original state. It can now be enjoyed for many years to come.

The winning team!

Team photos are often saved for posterity and are a cherished part of our history. But often they become damaged over time and mold and mildew can eat away at the surface. This was the case with this team photo from Wendy. The mounting board became damp and the mold and mildew was eating away at this wonderful old team photo. It was badly in need of restoration before the damage became too severe.

Hello Richard, I’m happy with the restoration and yes you are welcome to 
use it for demonstration.

Call International Rescue!!

Over the year I have received many inquiries from other countries. Last month I got these old black and white photos from Marilyn in Tahiti. She was visiting from Tahiti and her son had found my webpage online and recommend that she visited me whilst she was here. I had a limited time to restore these wonderful photos of hers. There was lots of red discolouration and the surface was badly damaged, but I think we had a very successful photo repair and she was very happy with the result.

I am happy about the work. – Marilyn | Tahiti

Another Great Review

Colin From Auckland brought in this wonderful old wedding photo that he wanted to restore for his wife as an anniversary present. This was the only colour photo from their wedding day and as such was a very precious memory. In Photoshop I was able to fix up the colour and remove the small marks and blemishes. The finished photo restoration was then framed in a simple but stylish white frame. Colin was so pleased with the result that he gave this wonderful review on Google.


I found a small, torn, badly marked and scratched colour photo at my mother-in-law’s home that depicted my wife Charmaine and I on our wedding day in 1972.
The photo is special because, although taken by a friend using a small Instamatic camera as we sat in the wedding car, it is the only colour photo we have of our wedding because all the professionally-taken colour photos did not come out due to a fault with the photographer’s camera.
I took the damaged small photo to Richard at PixelFix and he restored it beautifully to the stage where he was able to provide us with an enlarged print within a nice white frame which has pride of place on our mantelpiece.
I presented it to Charmaine for our wedding anniversary and she was absolutely thrilled with the superbly restored and vastly improved photo.

Could be in a spot of bother here!

Ruth sent me a batch of these wonderful old prints to be restored and as you can see, they are very badly spotted. this is a very common problem here in New Zealand and in Auckland in particular, due to the constant humidity and dampness during the winter months. But using Photoshop and by isolating the red and yellow channels I was able to remove the spots and restore these wonderful photos back to a presentable condition. 

Hi Richard
 Thanks so much.
You did a wonderful job and I will have the pleasure of showing the rest of the family next week.
