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.

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.

Scanning For Restoration

Mike had borrowed this large aerial photo of his old property and wanted to get this duplicated and restored for various members of his family. The photo is a large 20" x 30" print. Very typical of this type of photography. The age and sun had done their work and rendered the image with a strong red colour cast. The colour required restoration and a wide disbursement of small blemishes that always come with photos of this size needed to be removed.

One of the main difficulties with photo this size is digitising the image so it can be worked on the computer in Photoshop. Scanning such a large image requires either a VERY large flat bed scanner. They don't exist. Not that can be afforded. Or a series of smaller scans that are then stitched together in Photoshop to complete the whole picture. A third option is to photograph the entire image using a high resolution camera. This time we used lots of smaller scans to make up the whole photo. eight scans in total were used.

Let There Be Light!

Let there be light!

When Julia brought in this wonderful family photo for restoration. It was dark and had been laminated. A common practice with photos from the islands. But we were able to use the magic of Photoshop to bring back the brightness and also the colour. The difference is amazing and Julia was very pleased with the results.

Julia-
