A range of photographic improvements are available to change how a picture looks from enhancing clarity and colours to altering subjects and backgrounds or other customised options to change the style of your photograph.

High quality digital editing to your bespoke requirements makes for unique and special photographic gifts to surprise and delight - a recent customer was nearly in tears after seeing one of his old pictures restored and revived.

This is not an automatic photo editing app and all requests are applied by hand and eye, with projects usually completed on a first come first served basis. The service can be quite busy around times like Mothers Day and Christmas so it's wise to get in touch with your request well in advance if you're thinking of ordering something as a gift!

Restoration and repair of old prints and pictures

Shown below are two recent pictures repaired using the service (click on these for a closer look in more detail)

A broken old picture restored
roll of honour picture from world war one with repair and rebuilding of flags of the allies

First shown is a large old picture of a world war one soldier dated about 100 years old and it's size was about 16" x 20".

Prior to being digitally fixed and reproduced this broken picture was in very poor shape and due to it's age and brittle condition the pieces were being held together with tape. The far right side was missing and looked like it had broke off quite some time ago.

Corrections to a faded and discoloured photo print

The next was a smaller photographic print sized at around 6" x 8".

The colours and details were starting to fade and the photo had creasing, marks, and discolouration over the main subjects before being restored, enhanced and reproduced as an enlarged print at 10" x 8".

Custom adjustments and artwork

Poor clarity low resolution image and a badly framed shot
photo enhancement and adjustment Low quality images enhanced Off centre photos adjusted
Adjustments, effects, and extension artwork.

The first example shows a blurry digital image which was taken in low resolution (only about 1 megapixel). It was lacking clarity in the colours and subject details, with blocky pixels appearing up close as it was such a small and low quality image. Would it make a good canvas?

The final result was a smooth high quality digital image in which the details and colours were enhanced to produce a vibrant colour canvas sized 16" x 12". The subjects had a spotlight effect applied to highlight them, and some background alterations were also made.

The other shows a photo taken badly with the subjects off centre and too close to the right side. Can the angle of the photo shot be adjusted as if it was taken more to the right?

By extending the photo background with retouching artwork the subjects can be adjusted to any position. The detail to the right of the chair is artwork that's been added - it's a fake photo from that point but it's hard to tell, right?

A unique tailored service to help with any photographic problems

Some of the picture options provided here are not offered elsewhere like the option to fine tune details and colours to your tastes with high detail retouching artwork, including many unique options to help with improving clarity or changing other photo details or sizes as illustrated.

Take a look through your old photo albums and you're bound to find a good photo that's been forgotten about that could do with some digital improvements.

These photo services are available via email, web, post, or local visit and all restoration, repair, corrections, and other enhancements are safely made to a digital copy of your picture.

Digital image formats

If already have pictures in a digital format you can email them to the service at

If you are having problems sending larger images due to your email size limits, get in touch and alternative transfer methods can be provided.

Using originals and prints etc

You can post your original photos to the service at the address below or arrange to visit and bring them round in person for a quick consultation to discuss what services you require.

Don't have access to scanning equipment and don't want to post an original photo print or have to visit? If you can email a good quality digital photograph of your picture or post a decent quality copy, that can achieve fair results and may save a lot of worry about getting the original to the service. Making another copy will cause some loss of clarity depending on the quality although that can be enhanced digitally. Get your picture square in the frame of the shot and as large as possible, use the best quality setting if available and keep the photographic device steady for best results. Copies created from as close to the original media as possible will provide maximum authentic details.
