Another Photo Restoration Time lapse

The Restoration

Its Friday again. YAY! This means we have another time lapse video for you to enjoy. this was just one restoration out of 11 that I did for this customer to create a wonderful historic display. This was a challenging restoration of an old black and white photo. It was very small and very dirty. The quality of the photo means there is a shortage of details. Which makes the restoration a little difficult when trying to retain as much detail as possible whilst removing as much dirt and blemishes from the image. But the final result i think is very nice and a big improvement on the original.

Corona Virus Update

I would like to update everyone how the corona virus Covid19 is affecting our operations and business at the moment. The short answer is that it is not affecting us at the moment. Which is good news. We are open for business and I have a desk full of restorations currently underway. So if you have a photo that you think may need restoration, then please contact us and I would be happy to give you a FREE QUOTE.

But if you are in self isolation because of the corona virus. Then there are many ways that you can send us your photo for restoration;

Internet

Firstly you can send us your photo via the internet. Options to send us your photo by email. The upload facility on our webpage are available 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. To use this service you will need to scan your photo or take a photo of it by using your phone. If you need help with any of this then please give me a call and I'll be happy to talk you through the process. There are details of the scanning requirements on our Photo Restoration page in the FAQs section.

Post

Secondly you can send us your photo via a courier service. Pass the Parcel  is a very good service that will pick up from your home and take payment online. If you are able to visit the Post Shop then of course just pop your photo into a courier bag and let the lovely people at the Post Shop do the rest. Once your photo has arrived I can get to work on the restoration.

Friend

Lastly, you can ask a friend or relative to drop off the photo for you. Just put the photo in a ziplock bag and wipe the bag with antiseptic wipe. The photo will then be safe to travel with your friend or relative.

I hope this was helpful and remember Keep Calm and Carry On.

Restoration of Silvering in Black and White Photos

Old Black and White Photos can sometimes suffer from a problem called silvering. As the chemical bonds in the photo breaks down over time. The silver in the photo becomes visible on the surface and is seen as a shiny pale haze that obscures the darkest parts of the photo.

If you have a photo that looks like this, don't worry. We can fix it. We can restore the lost details. Using Photoshop we can remove the haze and fading that the silvering has caused. Once restored these old precious photos can be printed & displayed and enjoyed again for many years to come.

Ask us today how we can help you restore your old black and photos.

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.

Google Review

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.

The Beauty of Black and White

Sunlight can be a powerful destroyer of Black and White photos. It leads to fading and discolouration. This sad old photo was on its way to the ghostly 'faded photo bin'. But I was able to restore the fading and remove the discoloration to return this damaged photo back to its form glory. Black and white is such a beautify medium I think and this is a fine example of that. Barry was so please he ordered 3 copies with frames. 

 

Hi Richard,

Payment made via internet banking just now. Yes you may use the images as an example if you wish to do so.

Looks fantastic!

A Wedding To Remember

Faa brought us this very old wedding photo that he wanted to put back up on display again. The original was cut out with a pair of scissors and glued to some heavy board material. Because the couple in the photo were both wearing wight it was very difficult to find any details. And so, using Photoshop, I had to paint in by hand the shading and outlines. We also added a bench for the couple to sit on. Replaced the background and sharpened up the image to make this photo come back to life. Faa was very happy with the results.
