Recoloured old classic

Recoloured old classic

Chelsea brought in this wonderful but tired old photo. This is a classic example of an old studio photograph that was originally black and white and then was painted by hand with colour. The colour for this little boy had faded very badly over the many years and was in need or recolouring. I first cleaned up the image with clone and healing tools and then repainted the photo with different colour and soft light layers in Photoshop.

It looks AMAZING ! You have done such a awesome job i love how you have left the background as is. Thank you.

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.

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.

I will be taking order for restorations up until the last week before Chrstmas. The new courier service I am using will ensure everyone gets there finished restorations in time for Christms.

Below is a great photo that I have restored for Kaylm and he was very happy to have this restored and I’m sure it will make a wonderful Christmas present


Old Photo Into a Canvas

Everett brought in a wonderful old aerial photo taken of the Botany Downs area in Auckland, from way back in the 50’s. He was looking to make this old photo into a canvas to go on his wall.

It was originally black and white but was then hand painted to make it look like a colour photo.  It was loosing its colour and was fading.
So I restored the photo and produced a large 30″ x 40″ canvas that he now has displayed up on his wall. Below is the finished product.
A large hand stretched cotton canvas on a wooden frame with full UV protective coating. This now looks full of colour and will last for many years to come.
