The Essence of Photo Restoration Maitland & Newcastle

Hi, I’m Michelle from Photo Restoration Maitland & Newcastle. I’ve always loved looking back and discovering the history of the lives of my relatives. From an early age I used to sit in a quiet spot and pour over old albums for hours. My mother gave me the nod to this past-time, as long as I returned all the albums to the cupboard when I’d finished ogling them all. I still remember the look on my mother’s face when I’d ask to look at all the photographs again, the next day! Luckily for me, it was a look of love. The same process unfolded with my grandmother. The upshot is, I obviously couldn’t get enough of photos, because they were a reminder of where I came from. Who doesn’t like looking over old photos? Photographs have so much history. Old photos demonstrate that your loved one lived. Old photos never fail to tell a story.

About Enhancing Colour on old Photographs

At Photo Restoration Maitland & Newcastle we observe whether enhancing the colour of a photograph may be required. If the photograph is in tact in all areas, but has faded all over slightly or has faded in a specific area, sometimes enhancing colour in a certain area or overall enhancement of colour within the image is all that is required.

About Reducing Highlights on old Photographs

At Photo Restoration Maitland & Newcastle we see old photographs that are in need of highlight reduction. We frequently fix over exposure issues, which rectifies over exposure distractions.

About Adding Highlights & Changing Tone on old Photographs

At Photo Restoration Maitland & Newcastle we observe whether adding highlights may be applied for visual enhancement and/or whether changing the tone in a photograph may be required to acheive a warmer (redder) tone or a cooler (bluer) tone for example. Changing the tone of an old photo can completely change it’s appearance in a positive way.

About Restoring Photo’s that are Stuck Behind Glass

About Water Damage Removal from Photographs

Water damage is probably the worst type of damage to a photograph. Successful photo restoration of an old photo with water damage will be the extent of the damage.

About Converting your Photo to Black & White or Sepia

At Photo Restoration Maitland & Newcastle we are able to convert your colour photo into your choice of Black and White or Sepia. However, on many occasions we recommend Black & White, because it adds a certain cleanliness and clarity to many images.

About Rip, Tear & Puncture Repairs to your photo

Rips, tears, and/or punctures are very common on old photographs, particularly if your old photos haven’t been looked after over the years. Tears and cracks are particularly common. In fact, many of the old and damaged photographs we restore look like “Road Maps”. After restoration old portraits are smooth, like new again. The photo transformations are astounding.

About Removing People and/or Objects from Photo’s

About Cropping your photo

If your old portrait is in reasonable condition to begin with, cropping your old portrait can be achieved.

About Faded Portraits

Faded photos are another common problem we see. This especially occurs when photos have been left in direct sunlight over time. However, age is also a factor. Again, the extent to which a faded portrait can be fixed is dependent upon the extent of the damage to the photo.
