Best Photo Restoration Service

At PhotoSmile in Croydon, we believe that everyone should be proud to show off their favourite photographs, but that can sometimes be difficult if your image has been damaged. That’s why we offer digital photo restoration services, to repair scratched, torn, or otherwise damaged photos and give them a new lease of life. This service is especially useful for old photographs; colours can fade, even with those prints that have been stored well. As you know, these pictures can never be recreated, and you can’t simply print out new copies from a USB stick, so keeping them looking great is hugely important.

What Can We Do?

We offer professional photo restoration in Croydon, which means we deal with all manner of damaged photographs and bring them back to their former glory. Whatever state your photograph is in, don’t worry – we’ve been in this business long enough that we’re pretty sure we’ve seen it all. We’ve seen the standard sun-faded photos, creased pictures, torn images, and so on, and we’ve also seen some of the more unusual types of damage – part eaten by the family dog, scribbled on by a curious child, dart holes through the middle… you name it! Our job is to get rid of all those unsightly blemishes.

How Do We Do It?

One of the most common questions we’re asked here at PhotoSmile in Croydon is ‘how do you do it?’ In truth, there’s really no single way to achieve good photo restoration; instead, it’s about combining skill and expertise with a range of digital techniques to get great results. Quite often, we need to recreate parts of a photograph from scratch, which may sound strange but is a very beneficial technique for restoration. Think about colourisation of black and white photographs, for example. We can never be 100 percent sure of all the original colours, so we would need to draw upon our photography experience, and use our own initiative, creativity, and artistry to achieve a result that our clients are happy with. It’s the same when it comes to restoration. One of the reasons why we’re a leading old photo restoration company in Croydon is because of our experience and eye for detail. Boiled down to its simplest form, we ‘paint’ over damaged areas to provide a seamless repair that you’d never know had been worked on.
