We all have lots of photos, and if you’re lucky you have lots of old ones that have been passed down in your family. The family photos are treasures and full of memories … often the most visual link we have to them. But over time they can deteriorate with fading, and sometimes they’ve been damaged by being torn, scratched, marked, or even got mouldy.
We have come to know Vivid Recollection, a wonderful Australian-based and family-owned company that can restore your photos digitally to their original condition. They do an amazing job restoring even the most damaged images, to something like their original condition. You can see the examples below. And we have also been able to negotiate a special offer just for you.

So how does photo restoration work?

Do I have to send my photo to them in the mail?
No. Vivid Recollection understands that your photos are irreplaceable so it’s not necessary to post your photos or documents to them. Just contact them for further details regarding this.
How much does photo restoration cost?
As you can imagine this varies from job to job. But feel free to get in touch with Vivid Recollection for a quote. But in general terms it could be anything from $80-200 depending on the severity of damage.
Why can’t I do photo restoration myself?
Well some of you may be able to, but the greater portion of the population, probably don’t have the software or patience to do this. So why not pay a few dollars and leave it to someone who knows how to do it properly. Besides, that means your time is freed up for other important things, like researching your family history, which so much more interesting and productive.
