Making those faded memories .....


.... as fresh as a daisy


So now you don't have to remember your grandma as just a misty grey image - that old photo can be restored to look as good as the day it was first taken ...

Photo Restoration
How Imagine IT Works

We take your original photo, in colour or black and white, and scan it, creating a computer picture which can be stored and altered as needed.

We can then make changes to the brightness and contrast, remove marks and creases and restore torn edges. Your photo can be made to look as good as on the day it was first taken. Imagine IT can get rid of unwanted background objects or even people from a photo. It is also possible to combine two or more images if you want to create a single picture of people who happen to be in different photos or to create a montage which is an ideal gift for a special birthday or anniversary. From old photos, the prints can be sepia tinted in order to avoid them looking too ‘modern’.

The finished output is on photographic weight paper. Your pictures are produced as photo quality computer prints up to A3. A digital negative can be manufactured which can be used to reproduce the picture in a conventional photographic way - from 3½" x 2½" up to 20" x 30".

Work is charged according to the time spent - obviously, the more crucial the area of damage (such as on facial features), the more time will be needed.

To make life simpler, two basic services have been introduced which cover the majority of work. These are the Standard and Premier Services. Restoration beyond this amount of damage or the merging of two or more photographs comes within the Expert Service. Please see the price list for details of services available.

If you can’t decide which service is most suitable, please contact us and ask for a quotation - we're always ready to help.

By the act of placing an order the customer expresses his right to reproduce the image supplied under copyright law. The customer is absolutely liable for any resulting violation of copyright action taken by any third party.

Imagine IT will not intentionally copy or reproduce any photograph or other image which is protected by copyright. Copyright law can be roughly summarised as follows:

  • Usually, whoever takes the photograph owns the copyright. As long as this was not a professional photographer, there are rarely any problems with permission.
  • If the photograph is the work of a professional photographer or photographic studio, you can contact them and ask for written permission to copy/alter it. This written permission should be sent with the photograph.
  • If you cannot contact, or do not know, the studio or professional, the general rule is that copyright lasts for the lifetime of the photographer plus 75 years.
