Many of us have old photos in our collection of family photos. Some of these photos are in fantastic condition but many - especially the very old ones - are often in bad condition with tears, scratches, and some have even been ripped in half. Most people lose hope that these old photos can ever be fixed, but that isn't the case.
First thing you will need to do is to make contact with me via email or phone. I will need to see a copy of the photo/s in question - even if it is just a quick phone photo - so I can see what we are dealing with. It is during this inquiry process that we will discuss what you would like fixed and what colour options you would like for the finished product.
We will organize a time for you to drop your photo/s off to my home studio. From this point, I will scan the photo/s into my computer using a professional grade scanner and meticulously edit your photo/s to your specifications using Adobe Photoshop. Detail is extremely important with this process, so scanning in the original correctly is a very important step.
There are three options when it comes to the colour of your photo. Option 1 is where I maintain the same colours as the original. Option 2 is where I convert the photo to black and white and Option 3 is where I convert your photo to colour. I will need colour information (such as eye colour, clothing colour etc.) for this option.
Once I have finished the restoration work, I will email you a low-resolution copy of the edited file for you to approve. Once I receive your approval, I will invoice you for the work I have done. My labour is billed on an hourly basis and does not include prints. Once the payment for the work has been received, I will email you the high-resolution copy of your photo for your use. We will also organize a time for you to pick up your original photo and any prints you have ordered.
Print Your Photos
Many of my clients ask for a print of their restored photo. I am currently unable to print photos in-house but I do outsource printing to a professional print lab in Australia. I also offer framed prints should you wish to hang your photo on a wall in your home. It's great if you have a size in mind for your print, but if you don't I can email you a size/price list and you can select from there. Please note that as I outsource printing, there will be a postage/shipping fee.
