Run Rabbit, Run Rabbit, Run Run Run

Hamish from Auckland brought this wonderful old photo for restoration. the photo is a good example of a black and white photo suffering from silvering and fading. By selecting the blue channel and using that to create a mask i was able to adjust the tone and revive the image in Photoshop. Hamish was very happy with the results and wrote this very nice review on Yellow Pages. You can read more about the Yellow Pages review here

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

Happy Anniversary

Andrew brought me this faded old wedding photo and asked for it to be restored. Of course I was happy to oblige. after many years in a frame it was badly fading and the colours had deteriorated. I noticed that the colour of the eyes had  were slightly different for the man. His left eye was different to the right. I assumed this was due to a colour shift because of the fading, but in reality he had two differently coloured eyes. The left one green and the right one blue!! ​
The final restoration is now back with Andrew and his wife in Auckland and being enjoyed once more. 

…that’s great thank you           -Andrew | Auckland

Sometimes it’s not a photo.

This document was badly damaged by water and has discoloured with dark stained areas covering most of the image. Using a mix of colour channels and experimenting with a colour overlay in different blending modes in Photoshop, I was able to restore this document. It is now in a very presentable state. This particular document was restored for the Tongan Ministry of Culture.

A highland fling!

Shiree sent me this wonderful old photo to be cleaned up. It was starting top fade and looked a little worn. So using Photoshop I was able to clean up the blemishes and improve the overall contrast and tone of the image. A little bit of sharpening to finish the photo off then a Gallery quality Giclee print was produce and couriered straight out to Shiree.

Hi Richard
This looks amazing.  My husband was really pleased, as photo of his Dad and Uncle.
Will put the money through for you tonight
Most happy, thanks
Kind regards Shiree

Something from nothing much.

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.

It’s March already!!

Wow! It’s the first week of March already, I wonder where the time goes? Well I know where the last 2 weeks has gone. I spent most of that time updating the website and improving the look and feel. I added a new colour scheme and made a few small additions and made some other thing a bit more streamlined. 

I use Weebly for my website hosting and editing i find it works well for me and it is quick and easy to use. check them out. 

Just in time for Christmas

Abbey was delighted to have this wonderful old photo restored before Christmas. This was an old and faded which had been mounted on to card and need to be lightened and contrast and clarity adjusted The background was filled in around the top to square off the edges.

Hi Richard,

I wanted to thank you for restoring my photo, looks great.
Keep up the good work 🙂

This was a disappointment 

Lueresia brought me this wonderful old photo that had unfortunately been badly creased straight through the middle. She had previously taken the photo to a photolab to be restored but was not happy at all with the result. So she asked if I could do any better. 
I could, and, I did. Below is the black and white version that she now has on display and the creases have all been removed and Lueresia is very happy with the restoration work. 

That looks great! Thanks so much. – Lueresia

New review for photo restoration services.

It is always nice to know that the work I do is enjoyed by others and it is making others happy. Kirsty wrote recently on my Facebook page for PixelFIX Photo Restoration services. Click here to read more from my Facebook Page. The restoration was a very large A1 poster of a Ducati motor bike. It was faded and creased with a few tears here and there. But by using Photoshop I was able to restore this wonderful poster.

Richard did an amazing job of restoring a vintage Ducati poster which was a birthday present for my husband. Perfection! My husband was over the moon! Thanks Richard.

How did this happen?

Light and in particular UV light is a very destructive thing. It will literally make your precious photos disappear before your very eyes! Fleur from Mount Maunganui, had this exact problem with this wonderful portrait that had sat in a frame for too long. I was able to use Photoshop to recover the faded photo and repair the damage. Fleur was very pleased with the photo restoration and to be able to see her Mother again. 

Good afternoon thank you the photo looks great. I will make payment this afternoon. Cheers Fleur
