Photo Restoration

We have the digital skills to rescue and restore old or damaged photographs.


People send us old wedding photos to restore, other times its pictures of grandparents that we restore and enhance.

With patience and the right technique significant improvements can be made to old photos, not just restoring them to their prior state, but improving them beyond the original through adding contrast or sharpening.

We work on fixing photos day in, day out, so we are well qualified to repair your old photos in a non destructive way. A repair job might only take a couple of days, and we can offer brand new prints of your retouched photographs, if desired.


If the image source is non-digital, we prefer negatives rather than prints due to the extra detail that can be retrieved. However we can make a significant improvement on all images regardless of source.

There are numerous people offering photo restoration in Dublin, however few can match our abilities or attention to detail. 

That's why we are trusted by businesses and companies, and unlike kiosk operators we are not reliant on passing trade or offering add-on printing services to supplement our income.


Here are a few examples of whats possible:

How we work

Restoring old photos is three stage process, and is one of the most common requests we receive - but is also one of the most rewarding types of work we do.

Once we receive the print, we delicately lay it on our flatbed scanner and scan it at anywhere between 800 and 1200 dots per inch. Once saved as a digital file we then retain a copy of the original scan, and then are able to return the photograph to the owner.


We work our way across the image, left to right and top to bottom removing any marks, fixing any rips or creases, cloning away any scratches or signs of mould. We pay particular attention to faces and clothing. This stage can take a good deal of time if the image is badly damaged.

Once the image has be rid of its blemishes, we can then begin to restore and enhance the tonal range of the image, to ensure it looks punchy with the correct amount of contrast. Then we apply a couple of different types of sharpening to the image, the final one being appropriate to the size of the print i.e. its display size. We can even add colour!
