Modern photo-retouching techniques can produce astonishing results that will surprise you.

We love breathing new life into old photos thought to be too far gone.
Our UK-based photo retouching is done in-house by our expert, James Middleton. He uses only non-destructive techniques, so your original photo remains undamaged.

How to get your photograph to us
We typically work from scanned digital copies rather than original photos. For best results, customers scan images themselves and email the files to us. If you lack scanning access, we can scan your original photo for £5 plus postage and packaging fees to return the print. For DIY scanning, follow these guidelines:
This allows us to edit the digital file non-destructively without risking your original, irreplaceable photo.
When scanning your photos yourself, we recommend the following image dimensions in pixels: These allow for over-scanning and borders on the original photo:
If there are large non-photographic areas in your scan, increase the dimensions as needed for the best quality. Over-scanning the original helps us work with more detail for professional retouching results.
If you have any questions about scanning or image dimensions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re happy to provide guidance to ensure you get optimal scans for our retouching services: 01626 863367.
