Want to bring those memories back?

The ravages of time can take their toll reducing valuable old photographs to nothing more than faded paper. Fortunately, there is a solution to hand with our photo restoration service.


We take pride in picture restoration which means removing scratches, blemishes, rips, creases and other damage from your old prints.


Missing details can be quite convincingly replaced, such as legs, arms, feet, eyes and a whole lot more. In fact, you would be amazed by what is actually achievable. So why not have a browse through the short gallery below to see some typical restorations.

“Pimp my photo”

We also provide cut-outs, colour cast corrections, plus the removal or addition of people and objects in photos. ( We know you didn’t mean to take a photo with a lamp post “photo-bombing” your shot…did you? 😉 )

Getting your photos to us

There are no two tasks alike when it comes to photo restoration work, therefore we would suggest you send a high resolution scanned copy of your photo for us to give you a free estimate of the repair work necessary. If that is not possible, please enquire at your local post office about a secure method of forwarding your photos. NB. Return postage costs will be added for the return of your photos.

We always suggest that you give us a call before sending any photos for restoration and ask how we can help.

caring for your photos

All work is carried out from our own base here in West Yorkshire. We never send your precious photos away to some strange lab in a foreign land. Your photos are dealt with on an individual basis by hand, right here. Which means that you get personal attention on each and every task we undertake.

We would strongly advise prior consultation before authorising any commisssions. Every photo has its own peculiar needs and receives a free quote before we do any work.

colour correction

Straight forward colour and brightness corrections are the main stay of any aims of a photo and they start from as little as £15.00

removing/adding elements

The time and effort involved can vary quite considerably with this kind of restoration and so prices do vary somewhat from picture to picture, but benefit from a generous starting point of £20.00

damaged originals

scratches removed from photo

Scratch and Tear removal

This is where photo restoration costs are the most difficult to assess ad-lib. Faces can be a wee bit tricky to restore convincingly, however each image is treated with a high level of respect.




 Restoration could be as simple as repairing a tear or disguising a few marks (around £20.00) or for more serious repairs the only real way to know is to submit a sample for quotation.




 We’re available to chat most days during office hours (10 to 5) if you would like us to answer any questions you may have, on 07903 646186

A Wedding Day Transformed

Back in the day, colour photography was just a fanciful wish and all we had was the emotive black and white print.
For many, seeing those precious old photos transformed into colour, somehow makes them feel “more real“.
Everything from the colour of your hair to your rosy cheeks, can be brought back to life by the addition of colour.
