Photo Restoration

Every retouching job is unique and must be individually quoted.

When you send us your photo or upload your scan, our photo restoration artist will evaluate it and quote the cost of your restoration based on the extent of the damage. You are under no obligation until you accept our quoted price and will know your total restoration cost before work begins.

Note: While we can repair a great many types of damage, sadly, we cannot fix an out of focus image.
