Photo Restoration and Retouching
Faded, speckled photographs with extensive tear or stain damage can be expertly repaired by our restoration artists:.
Aged and weathered slides or film can often display ingrained dirt as well as deeply faded colours. "Haloing" is another form of damage often seen in aged slides and film; a severe desaturating effect often seen around the outlines within an image. Images such as this can also be beautifully restored by our team.
Removing figures or objects from an image is also something our team can do for you.
Another service also classed and priced as a "restoration" is our new colourising service. Our restoration artists can take an originally black and white image and add a brand new layer of colour to it.
At the Dartmoor Photographic, we are committed to bringing treasured memories back to life. Our highly-skilled restoration artists can take digital copies of your old and discolored, damaged or worn photographs and apply state-of-the-art digital editing techniques to beautifully and faithfully restore them to their former glory.
As well as bringing your photo in to our shop if local, we undertake many restorations online. This means that you don't have to risk sending what may be the only copy of a precious photograph through the post. Simply scan your photograph into your computer using a digital scanner and send the photograph to us using the Send Photos tab at the top of our website.
If you're unsure of how to use your scanner to send a digital copy of your photograph to us, please see our Help section for instructions on how to do this. Alternatively proceed to the 'Upload' page in the 'Services' menu, send us your photo or photos and we will return to you with a quote very quickly
Upon receiving your order, one of our restoration artists will immediately get to work with meticulous attention to detail. Most orders are completed and returned to customers fully restored within 24 hours, and all of our work is guaranteed to be returned to you fully restored or retouched within 72 hours.
Please note: We require high-resolution digital scans of photographs to enable us to produce the best restoration possible. We generally do not receive nor send photographic prints through the post.
However, please send us an email if you would like us to send a print of the completed photograph to any address and we will return your email with a quote for that service as soon as we can.
