Options for Picture Restoration

Whether you are searching for help with picture restoration or photo restoration, we are for you. We understand that sometimes things happen to your images that are beyond your control. Water damage, fire damage, or simply the tests of time can put pictures and photographs to the test. Chances are we will be able to help improve your photos, even photos with the worst damage. There are several options for picture restoration. Our team is able to repair photographs from damaged negatives, restore faded images from either monochrome or color originals, and even help repair pictures and photos that may be stuck to the glass in the frame they are currently in. Further, we are able to create copies of damaged photos, so you can have a photograph that will last a lifetime.

As part of our photo restoration services, we will give you suggestions and tools to use to properly store your photos to make sure they don’t incur further damage. First, make sure photographs are stored in a well ventilated area of the home. This area should be relatively free of moisture that can damage delicate photographs. The temperature should be below 75 degrees Fahrenheit (ca. 24 degree Celsius). High temperatures can impact the various chemicals used to create old photographs and can distort the images over time. Also, be sure to store your old photographs in a dark location. Constant exposure to both artificial and natural light can cause your photographs to fade faster than usual. We can get you set up with popper storage boxes and photograph organizers to help keep your pictures in good shape for years to come.

Our Photo Restoration Service

Completely torn into pieces. This nearly destroyed photograph was put back together, pixel by pixel, with advanced restoration.

Water damage. Repair of water-damaged photos and repair of fire-damaged photos are often related, since the water used to fight fires often damages photos. This level of damage requires experts in photo restoration.

Mold damage. Common with slides and negatives, which are sometimes kept in humid environments, like basements. The photo on the right is an example of advanced photo restoration that both removed the mold damage and also restored the color balance.

Photo enhancement service. We can take a person out of a photo, and put another one in. While it’s true that most of our restoration work is on heirloom photos that have somehow been damaged over time (which is surprisingly common), we can also “improve” an image, upon request. We can whiten teeth, remove a skin blemish, remove a person from a photo, or even place a new person into the photo. The sky is really the limit, simply tell us what you’d like, and we’ll let you know if it can be done.



Our professional-quality prints capture the true essence of your art photography. The level of detail is absolutely astonishing, from the vivid colors to the crisp contrasts.
