PHOTO RESTORATION

 

Restoration of your photos is a non destructive digital process.

The aim is to retain and honour the original condition of the image and make it look as natural as possible.

The process starts with a scan of the original photo which is then worked on in Photoshop.

How do i get my photos to you?

The preferred method is to have your photos scanned onto a USB. These can be either emailed or

uploaded to a dropbox for me to access. Your USB can also be delivered/picked up locally

or posted via registered post. Scanning is recommended at 600dpi for maximum image quality.

BigW, Harvey Norman, OfficeWorks or any office supply business should have this service available.

Most home printer/scanners will scan at 300dpi, some at 600dpi.

Set your unit to scan at it's highest resolution/quality. 300dpi is not ideal, but still acceptable.

File formats accepted: jpeg and TIFF. Others may be acceptable as well.

Your restored images can be provided to you on USB or made available from a private

download album on this website.

Alternatively you can post your photographs. Photos posted MUST be done so via Registered Post.

They are returned the same way with return postage added to invoice.

Photos can also be delivered/picked up locally.
