How do you bring back the colour? 


Edward from Singapore asked me to restore and bring back the colour to this wonderful family photo, from the seventies. It was his fathers photo and he wanted to put it back up on display again.  There was a lot of work involved and many different layers in Photoshop, but the finished result was a definite success. Edward was very happy with the photo restoration. He and his family are once again enjoying this wonderful portrait.

Thank you Pixelbox for the awesome job well done! We’ll definitely work together in the near future and I’m sure to recommend you services to my peers. Can’t wait to receive the parcel!

Spot the difference


Benjamin asked if I could do some photo retouching and change a few things in this photo. It was a straight forward request but there are lots of situations where backgrounds or people need to be removed. It is truly amazing what you can change with Photoshop. Can you see whats changed?


looking back over the past 12 months

I was just looking back over the last 12 months of photo restorations and there have been some wonderful photos this year. It’s great to know that so many people fell the same as I do about precious photos from our past. people not just from Auckland but from all over New Zealand. This was a great photo brought in by Sarah, one of nearly 60 photos that I restored for her. Definitely model material here! 

Let’s be colourful


Grant emailed me and asked for this wonderful old photograph to be brought back to life and to add colour back to the photo. He was able to give me very clear guidelines as to what the colours used to be. So using this information I was able to paint back in the colours, one by one. Below is a screen shot of the different  layers and colours used to paint in the colour. Everything down to the eyes lips eyebrows and background all get individual attention.


There was 15 layers for the colour painting alone on this restoration.
