This faded photo looked beyond repair...
Jone contacted me about repairing a couple of old photos that had faded away to virtually nothing. He’d been to a shop to see about fixing them- it was beyond their skills so they sent him to me.
With age the photo had lost virtually all its detail and colour. However I was able to bring a resaonable amount of detail to turn it into a black and white photo. Even though it’s still not perfect, Jone was more than happy with the end result.
This photo came damaged and stuck to the display glass. The photo was scanned with the glass still on it, the marks removed and colours brought back to life.

Sharyn contacted me about having 5 faded photos restored. They were recent prints done in the last 10 years of family ancestors. Printed using the Fuji Pictrix printer, many of these types photos have severely faded within a short period of time.
Sharyn thought they were beyond help, but I was able to bring back nearly all the missing details, adding a sepia colour tone to give back that old aged look.

Andrew called to see me about having a series of photos restored of his old time relatives from South Africa. This particular photo is of his grandfather’s rugby team taken in the early nineteen hundreds. The image was marked and scratched and looking worse for wear. After some extensive work the picture looked much better.
Innes contatced me about restoring this interesting photo. It was taken back in 1934 and shows a number of tents near the beaxch at Matapouri, Northland. It was a miners’ camp for the miners working in mines at Hikurangi – about 35 kms away. The photo was marked and faded. It was enhanced and bought back to life.
