Colourisation is a process of adding colour to a black & white or sepia image to add a sense of realism that is sometimes missing in the original photograph. It captures more life by giving an immediacy to your images and allows you to relate to it in a way that you couldn’t before.

Why Restore Your Old Photographs?

You are preserving family history. With the advances in technology, it’s possible to edit, enhance and save your images in digital files which you can share with other family members or friends, electronically. Too often, important photographs are never seen being stored away in a box somewhere or buried inside a mobile phone more recently!  Photographs are your best memories.

Preservation of Your Originals

A primary benefit is the preservation of your originals. In the case of deteriorating photographs, time is important. Professional photo restoration can prevent  further damage to the original mattering so much if it does occur.

Eliminate Scratches, Folds, Tears and Fading

You may be able to digitally scan and restore old photographs yourself using such programs as Google Picasa. You may find online tutorials and software to help you when restoring old photos but, for the best outcome, you should look at calling in an expert. Look out your old photos, historic photographs, family photographs, faded photographs, torn photographs, creased photographs, photographs that need repairing, photographs that need restoring and get your photographs restored now.

Add Sepia or Full Colour to Black and White Photographs

When restoring old photos, we can add a natural sepia to old black and white photos so all your restored images match each other. We can even transform your images to full colour. Professional restoration and editing techniques can add clearer focus or sharpness, besides adding realistic shades to the images.

Electronic Storage and Ease of Sharing

Restoring old photos allows you to convert them to digital images, which are easy to store and share with friends or family. With advances in technology, it’s possible to take an entire photo collection and store it on CD, DVD or memory stick. This can be a convenient way to retrieve a particular group of photographs or safely secure an additional copy, which will last virtually indefinitely. You can share digital copies through email or print as many copies as you need.

Genealogical Benefits

For historians, the benefits of restoring old photos is often considered priceless. The genealogical benefits are important to anybody trying to build a family tree. Expert restoration techniques should be used on any historically-significant photographs.

You may not realise there is a problem until you take a look at your photo collection after many years of storage. Our precious photo collections are in fact fading away and in time may well be beyond recovery. There is also the possibility of loss or damage in the case of fire or flood for example.

It is a very good idea to consider restoring your special photographs or even your entire photo collection in order to stop the unavoidable deterioration that will take place no matter how carefully your photos are stored. Once restored, the photos can be stored and shared on CD or memory stick, as well as long-term safekeeping. Once you have digital copies you needn’t worry so much about further damage because digital images do not degrade. We can use these digital images to make prints on archive paper, which will last over 100 years with no signs of degradation.

The restoration process 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. Adding colour to black and white photographs, as well as being able to make high quality enlargements.
