DIGITAL PHOTO RESTORATION: That's ALL we do ! So we HAVE to be good at it !
For quality digital photo restoration services, welcome to PhotoValet in Kensington, London UK. We bring your family memories back to life as we digitally restore old photos that have been damaged or faded over the years.
Talk to me, John Butler (PhotoValet's team leader), about your damaged photos by emailing me. I will be happy to give you free photo restoration advice. This is me at the 'Who Do You Think You Are Live' exhibition in Olympia, London, using proven(!) technology to advise a customer on having a photo restored.
For more information, to obtain our address, or to arrange a time to meet in London to discuss your photos, email us now : firstname.lastname@example.org.

Now you can meet me via video link using the very
new Google Helpouts facility. If you have a video
camera attached to your pc, you can show me your
photos and we can discuss them live online.
Helpouts is a new facility from Google. PhotoValet
is the VERY FIRST in the whole world to be asked
by Google to provide a photo restoration service
in Google Helpouts.
And don't be worried that your photo may be too large for us to handle. We can scan up to A3 size in one go. And for even larger photos, we can scan them in overlapping sections and join the scans together in the computer. And once an image is in the computer, the physical size is irrelevant.
On this site you will see many examples of photo restorations. People are often surprised at what can be achieved. Even if your damaged photos are in a worse state than these examples, get your photos to us and let us advise you on getting your photos restored and how much it will cost to bring your old photos back to life.
On this website, we are showing you some of the more difficult (and hence more expensive) photo restorations. But many old photos can be restored at much lower cost. Email us at email@example.com to get advice and a no-obligation quotation. The prices given on these pages are only rough indications - we need to see your photo to be able to give you a firm quotation. And remember that you don't pay anything until you have seen the finished job and are happy with it.

Restoration of Scratched Photos
Restoration of Faded Photos
Photo scratches that are not too difficult to repair can be restored for about £10 to £15 depending on the work to be done.
A single photo scratch might only cost £5.
You often need old photos restored because of faded colours. If the fading is evenly spread over the photo, the restoration is cheaper.
The cost to restore faded photos might be in the range of £10 to £30.
This old photo of a fine soldierly grandfather had nearly faded away entirely. It was a time-consuming job. Getting photos restored like this, might cost about £50-£60.
Major photo restoration
The BBC television programme: "Who Do You Think You Are?" dedicated to the family roots of Kim Cattrall included this photo, restored by PhotoValet.
Photos like this involve a fairly major photo restoration and could cost from £30 to £70
Restoration of torn photos
Torn photos where pieces are missing, because of water damage or other deterioration can often
be very successfully restored. Depending on how much damage there is, to repair photographs like this might cost in the range of £30 - £60.
See more examples of water damaged photos here.
There are many other examples and price indications on the other pages of this website. In particular, it is worth visiting our webpage on colourising to see how we can add colour to black and white photos.
| This is an example of a colourised photo.|
The customer gave us guidance on the
colours to be used in the restoration
and was very pleased with the result.
The cost of colourising depends very
much on how many individual areas
there are to be coloured. Let us see
your photo and we will give you
a quotation, with no obligation.
Partial photo restoration
| And of course, it may be that you|
don't need to restore the whole of a
photo. A portrait can be made from
part of a photo, removing those
parts that are not crucial .
And all those annoying fingerprints
that have accumulated over the
years can be removed at the same time.
And the BLOG page contains very recent examples of photo restoration work we have done. You may see photo damage very similar to that on your photos. But even if you don't, we can probably repair it.
You can also visit us on facebook to see more recent restoration examples.
Apart from removing damage to photos, we can enhance perfectly good photos. And we can turn photos into portraits that look like oil paintings. See our photo enhancement page for details.
