Cookie Policy

Photo restoration is the art of repairing and restoring photographs which are faded, torn or damaged. The original photograph is scanned, restored using professional computer software, and a new photographic print produced, leaving the original photograph untouched.

We want to provide an efficient and professional service and are keen to discuss your needs so that you get exactly what you want. We may even be able to suggest alternatives that you may not have been aware of, so please don't hesitate to contact us with your photo restoration queries.

Whether your photos need repairing for use in genealogy projects, family history research or just to make those special memories perfect, photo restoration can breathe new life into treasured old photos or enhance your more recent ones.

Ordering your photo restoration couldn't be easier.

Send by post
Please send your original photo to the address below. Do package your photographs carefully, we strongly recommend that you send all photos by recorded delivery - your pictures will be returned this way. We regret, we cannot be responsible for the condition in which we receive photographs or for those lost in the post. CAREFULLY REMOVE ALL PHOTOS FROM FRAMES.

Please be assured we will take great care of your original photographs and return them to you carefully packaged by recorded delivery.

Send by email
Simply scan your photograph at actual size using the colour photo or RGB colour setting on your scanner at a minimum resolution of 300 dpi (consult your scanner manual for information specific to your scanner). Save the scan in jpeg format and name the file with the suffix.jpg (for example photo.jpg).

Before we begin

Please note
If you decide not to go ahead with the restoration work your photo will be returned by recorded delivery.
In this instance we request a small charge (£2.99) to cover postage costs.


Extra prints
Although every order comes with a FREE 6’’ x 4’’ print extra prints can be ordered when you place your order. Please note that the size at which your photo can be printed is determined by the resolution of your picture.

How to pay

Once photo restoration is complete you will receive an email containing a proof copy of your photo and details for payment via PayPal or by bank transfer / cheque if requested (see below). Your original photograph together with free print (usually 6"x 4") will be sent to you directly once your payment has been received.

This is our preferred method of payment as it allows anyone with an email account to send and receive online payments securely. You will receive an email via PayPal which will contain a link taking you to the PayPal website and details of how to pay. You can use your debit or credit card for payments.
You don't need a PayPal account to pay in this way. Should you wish to open a PayPal account, sign-up is quick and easy. We politely request that this invoice is paid promptly as we cannot send your prints until payment has been made.
