STOP! Don’t bin that old, disintegrating photograph of Great Aunt Mabel! You will be surprised at what we can do these days. We love to fix the kind of damaged photos that most studios reject. Very few snaps are beyond repair. Ripped, faded and defaced images are professionally and digitally retouched using Adobe Photoshop. All of our photo retouching services are carried out within the UK by our in-house expert, James Middleton. Your original photograph will not be at all damaged during the retouching process. Only the digital, high resolution version will be worked upon.

Each photograph will have to be assessed to determine the appropriate service repair category. To get a rough idea of which price band your photo falls into, please visit our PHOTO RETOUCHING PRICE GENERATOR.

How to get your photograph to us
We rarely deal with the original photo. Customers are usually expected to scan the image in themselves and send them via email. However, if you haven’t access to a scanner, then we can scan your image for an additional cost of £5 + postage and packaging to return the original print. If you would like to scan your image in yourself, then please use the following guide:
- Black & White original: Scan in as Grayscale
- Colour original: Scan in as either RGB or CMYK
- 300 DPI: For finished print at same size as the original
- 600 DPI: For finished print at x2 size as the original
- Effects/Filters: None
For more of a technical description (if your scanner provides pixel information). Please note: the following figures allow for over scanning and borders within the original photographs. If there are any excessive non-photographic regions within your scan, ensure that you increase the pixel dimensions for optimal quality:
- 6 x 4” = 2250 x 1500 pixels
- 7 x 5″ = 2500 x 1786 pixels
- 8 x 6″ = 2600 x 1950 pixels
- 10 x 8″ = 3250 x 2600 pixels
If in doubt, please give us a call and we will be happy to advise you: 01626 863367.
