Photo Restoration & Editing

Photo Restoration is the repair of old photos, which can be faded, torn or damaged in some way. Damage can range from simple surface scratches to severe tears or missing pieces.

Photo Editing is the manipulation of an image, perhaps changing a background, adding or removing a person or object, merging two or more photos or changing the original colour format, such as colour to black & white, black & white to sepia & sometimes even adding colour to a photo.

We offer a three tier restoration service & editing services which fall mainly into three categories, although every restoration project is unique & is prices are only a guide. As a Photo Effex customer your quote will be specific to you and your photo's circumstances.

The colourisation of a black & white image (not suitable for all images) or the conversion of a colour image to a black & white or sepia one.


For all of our services we can work from digital files, original photos, scanned images, negatives or slides. All formats are converted to a digital file, from which alterations are made. A new photographic image is then produced, leaving the original image untouched. 

Before any work begins you will receive a guide price (an upper & lower estimation). Final prices are then calculated on time taken to complete work. Once restoration work is completed a proof will be sent to you together with final costs & you only pay if you are fully satisfied. 

All work includes 2 x FREE STANDARD PRINTS (up to 7"x 5") which will be sent to you directly from the photographic laboratory, once payment has been received. Larger prints, posters & canvases are available with prices detailed below.

Copies & Enlargements

We can provide you with quality copies or enlargements of your photos in addition to any photo repair or photo editing work carried out by us or as a completely separate service. We can produce prints of any size dependant on the quality of your original image.
