Welcome

Hello and welcome to my Photographic Restoration website.

Restoring a photo is important to me as it preserves precious memories and a visual evidence of the past for future generations to enjoy.

Within this site you will find details on how to request a restoration, the estimated costs depending on type of restoration and how to pay. You will also find a showcase of some of the restorations i have undertaken with a blog thrown in about day to days goings on in life.
A touch of what I can do for you!

  • Black & White Colourisation
  • Dust and Scratch Removal
  • Fading Correction
  • Paper Wrinkle Removal
  • Image Sharpening
  • Discolouration Correction & more..

Please read through my Photo Restoration Service page for further details on how to request a restoration or contact me via my contact page.
Dave has completed many projects for me over the years. He's always been honest and a man of his word concerning the work he's completed for me. I can say that I've always been impressed with the results to restoring an old photo, framing a picture, or even buying some of the projects he's completed. He's recently restored an old childhood photo and I cannot believe the difference. He completed it in black and white and another in colour. The original was at a total loss. I want to say that I would highly recommend Dave for anything that you want done. Thanks, Tina Ward
Tina Ward,

A photograph is the window to the past, they are cherished memories of loved ones who have passed and evidence of places our ancestors once lived.  Sometimes these irreplaceable photographs can become damaged and worn through the passage of time and may become irrepairable.

The photo restoration service that I provide is very affordable, and I can assure you that complete dedication, empathy and affection will be shown when restoring your photograph.

The following information will show you how to request a restoration of your photograph and the different levels of restoration.


How to send me your photograph:

Scan and email your photo

You can scan your photograph and email me the image to dave@davedgibson.com. Ensure that the settings for your scanner are set to high/fine quality and in RGB format, even if the photograph is Black and White.

Digital Upload

A well known and popular file sharing service that can be utilised by you to send me your scanned photograph or digital image is We Transfer. Please click the image below or the link to the left to send me your photograph.

The next bit…

Once I receive your scanned or digital image, I will examine the image and give you an exact quote on the cost and length of time it will take to restore your photograph.

If you agree to the quote, I will then undertake and complete the restoration and email you a password protected link to a web page displaying a watermarked proof of the completed work for you to review and confirm.

An invoice of the work will then be sent.

Once payment has been made for your photo restoration, i will then release and send you the complete and unwatermarked version of the image.

Please note, a delay in payment will mean a delay in you receiving your completed restored photograph.
