Colour Restoration

Alan dropped off this faded photo that had lost its colour and needed restoring. Using Photoshop I was able to recover the colour and restore the vibrancy that had been lost due to sun damage.

The PDF looks excellent and better than I had hoped.

More Colour Please

Ken sent me this old and tired portrait that had lost its colour and needed restoration. I was able to restore the colour using Photoshop and many layers of colour hand painted in to make this wonderful portrait come to life again. The colourization and restoration was very successful and Ken was very happy with the result.

Hi Richard
 
This is really looking good. So much better than before. We are really pleased

Add Colour This Year

WE are back! Happy new year to everyone. Towards the end of 2018 I had quite a few clients requesting photo colourization. Either from Black and white photos. Or old colour photos that have faded or become discoloured and require restoration and re-colourization

With Peter Jacksons new Film ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ bring old black and white film into the modern colour era it is not surpising that lots of people are now realising how much of a difference it can make to an old image. 

This year has started off in the same way the last ended so expect to see many more colourization restorations to come.

Royal Colour Restoration

This wonderful old photo of the Japanese royals was brought in by Her Majesty Nanasipauu Tukuaho Queen of Tonga. Unfortunately the original photo had been in a frame near the window and was exposed to the sun for many years before it came to me. So now it was sun bleached and almost completed faded away. Any colour that may have been present was lost due to the bleaching. Restoring the colour was not an option. This require a complete re-colouring to bring this back to life.

I had to research the correct colours for the sashes and the orders. But the background and the carpet I were to improvise. But I think you can see that this process of colourization really does bring this photo back to life.

Where did he go?

John asked me to remove a person from this photo that he sent me. This was so the restored photo could be put in to a book he was publishing.

The process of removing someone from a photo is a little more complicated than most people seem to imagine. I wish there was a simple magic brush that we painted over the unwanted area and then it removed the person. In reality there is more to this type of photo restoration.

Firstly we have to remove the person by cutting them out. On the digital screen we draw a selection around the person to be removed and then delete this area. This leaves a hole in the image and this needs to be filled by what we imagine was behind the person. In this case it was some steps and a wall. Using the clone and healing tools we have to clone surrounding areas to slowly fill in the missing areas to restore the missing pieces and complete the restoration.

Removing cat pee

Joy brought in this wonderful old photo that needed to be restored because it had been damaged by her cat. This was a very old portrait of a solder that had been framed in a dome shaped frame. This meant that I couldn’t scan this on a flat bed scanner as it was flat. So we digitized this by takeing a high resolution photo. This gave us a digital image that we could work with. In Photoshop we then removed the damage to the surface areas and replaced the background. The new background meant that it could now be printed and framed into a normal frame.

Another 5 Star Review and Great Photo Restoration

Urshila brought in this wonderful wedding photo taken in 1978 to be restored. The photo had some discolouration from ageing and Urshila wanted the highlights removed from the back wall area. The photo restoration process consisted of correcting the colour  using curves adjustment layers and a selective colour correction layer was added to remove the discolouration. Then all that remained was to use the healing and cloning tools to remove the highlights. I printed out a nice large A3 photo for them to go back up on the wall. 

Urshila was so happy with her photo restoration that she was kind enough to add a review on google you can read about it here.

Wow that looks great!

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.

Restoration Team Effort

This isn't the England after their semi final match in the football World Cup. But it did need some restoration!. This is the Corromandel Rugby Club back in the last century, 1899 to be exact. Team photos are often sent to us for restoration. They are probably the most difficult to restore. This is because of how many faces and how much detail need to be correct. If you smudge a tree in the background it may very well go unnoticed, but smudge somebodies eye in a team photo and everyone will notice the funny looking guy that you just smudged. This one took a good 6 hours to restore and clean up. But looks very nice now, especially with its new framing and matt border.
