Photograph Repair

The repair and restoration service provides two options for damaged images. Repair covers images with light or medium damaged areas where the core details of the photograph remain intact. Restoration is about bringing a seriously damaged image back to its original state. Seriously faded, torn or damaged photographs can be repaired using this service to create a new version of the original. 

Negatives, Transparencies and Digital Images

Damaged digital files, negatives and slides can be repaired or restored to produce a new photograph, negative or slide. Details can still be recovered even from seriously damaged images.

Images larger than 12×10 can be difficult to scan due to the physical size of the print and limited availability of large size scanners. A more cost-effective solution can be to photograph the original image with a camera. This provides a good quality copy of the original print image without the need for expensive scanning. Repair work can then commence on the digital copy.

All prints are made using professional quality Fuji pro paper with a choice of lustre, pearl or glossy New prints can be made to the same size as the original (or larger if required) using Fuji Crystal Archive DPII Professional papers with a choice of lustre, pearl or glossy finishes. The Fuji paper offers the widest colour gamut, maximum density for deep blacks and excellent colour saturation.

Frequently Asked Questions

A number of frequently asked questions regarding the digital Photoshop services have been answered HERE

Peace of Mind

Photographs are often irreplaceable. For total peace of mind about keeping precious prints or negatives safe, scanning can be completed as you wait if required.

The original image is scanned to provide a digital copy that can be worked on in Photoshop. When it has been scanned the original plays no further part in the process. No work is carried out on the original image itself and it is not sent away to a lab.

Based in Consett, County Durham, Richard Flint Photography has over twenty-five years of Photoshop experience with images, artwork and documents delivered to clients throughout the UK. Testimonials from previous customers can be found HERE.

Each repair is different and an estimate can be given if required. Most images usually have low levels of damage that will cost £24.99 to repair. Severely faded or water damaged images will have an estimate calculated before work commences. Damage to faces or key areas of the image incurs higher costs due to the extra repair work involved.

  • A quotation service is available for repair work on excessive/severely damaged photographs or film material (i.e. negatives or transparencies).
