Photo Restoration

Restoring your memories

Do you need a photo restoration? I have been doing photo restorations for over 25 years. I am the only restoration company in southern Alberta that was trained by Adobe in image editing and restoration.

I can take old slides, negatives and prints and copy or fully restore them. I do images from back as early as the 1800’s all the way up to today. From tinny prints the size of a dime to images 30′ high. Prints that are in one piece to prints that are in multiple pieces.

If you want prints of your restored images I use special archival paper for long term permanence.

Paterson Photography can handle original prints from wallet size to life size. Unlike many places I have no size limit on digitizing original prints.

At Paterson Photography I do work for may individuals and companies and I can restore one image or thousands.

Artwork digitizing

Make digital copies of your original art work. We can also print on a variety of artist media.

CAUTION – Many places that copy prints use photocopiers to do so. THIS IS NOT RIGHT!!!!! When a photocopier makes a copy it does so by using tiny dots. This removes a lot of the quality from the original. It also makes it impossible to make a quality copy from the copy. DO NOT get photocopies of your memories!!!!!!!

Fire & Flood

When disaster strikes the first thing many people grab are the photos.   At Paterson Photography I understand the importance of your photo memories. I can help you preserve your memories for today and for many tomorrows.   Old, torn, ripped and faded photos can be restored to new or even better condition.  I can work from prints, negatives, slides, digital files and more.  I NEVER alter the original image, in fact I can usually return the original(s) to you in minutes.

Photo restoration pricing

Each print can have many factors that will effect how much work needs to be done to restore it. Also each client will want the restored image to be done to different levels of restoration. Because of this I strongly suggest you bring in your image (s) to have me quote on them. I do not charge for this and I can let you know what can be done and you can tell me how much restoration you want done.

A) Basic restoration – Minor scratches, spots or discoloration $20
B) Minor restoration – Scratches or rips in the image $40
C) Major restoration – Repair minor missing parts of an image, major scratches, major color repair $60
D) Extensive restoration – Repair face damage, add color to image $100
E) Custom – Adding or removing a person, changing background – A quote must be given on this level after seeing the print.

Plus, I offer a memory making service that takes your old photographs and puts them onto a CD or DVD, along with information about the photos.  What a great way to not only preserve the photos, but the story behind each photo.  In addition to having the photos and the story, the CD or DVD acts as a digital negative, so if anything should ever happen to the originals you can print from the digital negatives and replace the lost photos.

Take a look at the services that we offer, and don’t delay in calling.  One day may be one too long as it only takes a second to loose a lifetime of memories.
