Why Restoring Photos is so Important?
Most people do not realise there is a problem until they take a look at their photo collection after many years of storage. Believe it or not all photography’s fade in time and without action maybe beyond recovery if not restored and recreated. Photos show a generation, a moment in time that is irreplaceable for your family and its because of this it is priceless.
Our specialist team uses the National Archives of Australia Photography management guidelines in photo retouching & restoration, archival printing, print conservation, print treatments and custom framing. Our restoration process sometimes improves the quality of the original photograph – by removal of spots, stains, marks, tears as well as improving contrast, brightness, colour balance and enhancement of detail, focus and sharpness.
We can help with:
* Assist with Salvage of Photos Damaged by Water or Fire
* Restore and Repair old or new Photos, Albums & Frames
* Conservation of original or Historic Photographs and Negatives
* Printing, Mounting and Lamination Service
