Do you repair / restore physical photographs?

Currently this is not something I offer. All restoration services are for digital files only.

What if I don't have a digital copy of the image?

No problem! If you don't have a digitised version to restore, I offer scanning and digitisation services to turn your old print or 35mm slide into a digital image ready to be worked on.

Can you enhance really blurry / pixelated digital photos?

I have various tricks and techniques to take low resolution files and get more detail out of them, though this will never garner perfect results.
