Missing Pieces – Army Photo Restoration

Phil brought in this very poor condition photo that was missing pieces and in desperate need of restoration. The photo had faded and had missing pieces and large areas due to tears. Large team photos are always the most difficult to restore and take the most time due to the number of faces and detail in the photos. The job of replacing the missing people was a big job and took many hours to fully repair. Using Photoshop to copy other areas of the photo and piece together the missing areas like a jigsaw puzzle. Luckily Phil didn't know remember any of the missing faces. The completed picture was then returned to its original black and white colour and printed ready for framing.

Colourize and make your photo travel through time!

Old black and white photos are wonderful. They show a time that was long ago. But when you add colour you bring them forward in time so to speak they look real they have a more life to them. It is as though they were taken yesterday. It becomes an amazing transformation. 

The process to do this colourizing magic is not all science. In fact most of it is down to artistic flair and skill. Once the original black and white image is restored and looking like new again, the re-colourizing process can begin.  The process all takes place in Photoshop but the colours are painted in by hand using a 'digital brush'.  The colours are all chosen by the artist too. We do not know from the black and white photo which shade of grey is which colour. So researching the period and other information including feedback from the client is all very important to the final result.

The photo restoration colourizing example below is a fine example how colour can really make a an big impact.

Genealogy – Happy Families

Happy Families

Ian is updating his families genealogy files and he brought me a bunch of these very badly faded old black and white photos to be restored. The fading was not uniform and was quite bad in places. This type of old photo is very small and was not very sharp. The other blemishes and marks were also removed and the final restored photo was a big improvement on the originals.

Genealogy;

Genealogy also known as family history, is the study of families and the tracing of their lineages and history. Genealogists use oral interviews, historical records, genetic analysis, and other records to obtain information about a family and to demonstrate kinship and pedigrees of its members. The results are often displayed in charts or written as narratives.

Merry Christmas Reviews

It has been a very busy Christmas but we are almost at the finishing line now. A few more pick ups still to go but all the hard work is done. The feedback has been fantastic and here are a few reviews that we got on Google. Thank you everyone and Merry Christmas.

I dealt with Richard from PixelFix who assisted me to restore a very special photo of mine. He was very quick to respond to my enquiry and did an amazing job of removing a couple of objects from the background of the photo. The photo had “70’s” wall paper so it would have been very tricky to match up the design. I would highly recommend Richard if you need assistance with photo restoration. Thanks again Richard!

Richard’s service and work quality is excellent. He has done a great job on the only photo I have of my Grandad in the war, even though it was a poor copy. I recommend his work.
