Photo Restoration

Your Family Memories Restored to Like New Condition

We all have old family photographs that have been handed down from generation to generation. Not everyone has cared for these photos as best as can be and as a result, their condition has often suffered. Cracks, stains, fading, and scratching mar these old family heirlooms. Here at Roy Dressel Photography, our photo restoration service brings them back to as like-new condition as possible. Saving those old photos is something that you should do sooner than later. As the years pass, the pictures become more brittle, and the chance of losing them to the elements increases.

.We do all work in our studio.

At Roy Dressel Photography, we do all our work in-house. Your originals never leave our studio, with the chance that they will become lost or damaged in transit.

The photo restoration Process

We begin by making a digital copy of your image (included with your restoration) and then work on that file in photoshop. The cost is based on the extent of damage and the time we expect the job to take. We will inspect the photo and give you a written estimate. The price will never exceed the amount of the estimate but could be lower. There is a minimum charge of $20.00.

Turn around times

 For most restorations, the turn around is about two weeks; this varies with the amount of work involved and can sometimes be a little longer. You will be given a date when the work will be done when you place the order.

All work is fully guaranteed. 

You must be happy with what we do, or there is no charge. Roy has worked in B&W for forty years. Both in the darkroom in the days of film and now, digitally. We work only with professional labs for the finest quality, both visually and in terms of longevity.

Just need your old photos, slides, or negatives scanned to digital files. We do that also. 

Ready to preserve your family memories; give us a call or email us about our photo restoration service.

Redwood HS (Visalia CA) Class of 1959 Before Photo Restoration

This image was brought into our studio torn and bent after years of being stored rolled up.

This was one of our favorite projects, painstakingly going through all the cracks, seeing the kid’s faces, thinking about the photographer taking this shot and where are all the kids after all these years. That’s what makes photo restoration so much fun. it’s someone’s history, its someone’s life.

remove people before and after

We can remove people from an old family photo. Here, the couple did not have a photo of the two of them taken at there wedding back in the 1970s, now they do by having us remove the best man and maid of honor from the photo they did have.
