We use digital technology to restore damaged photos and documents.

We’re a Canberra-based imaging company with affiliates in Sydney, Brisbane, Gosford and Adelaide.
Get your image scanned at one of these collection points, or scan it yourself and upload the digital file. We’ll create a new high resolution digital image for you to download and share, and can also print the image on archival paper.

Photo restoration

Most jobs take a week to complete but we can do rush jobs if there’s a tight deadline.
We’ll email you a preview of the restoration work and send you the invoice when you are happy with the outcome.
Full resolution digital images are sent immediately upon payment. Allow a week to 10 days for prints.

We work with a maximum of five images in any one order.

What our customers say

“Vivid Recollection did a fantastic job scanning and restoring archival photos from RØDE’s company history. Throughout the process their communication was professional and prompt – an absolute pleasure to deal with.”
Scott E, Silverwater NSW


“Grandad passed nearly 30 years ago and all we’ve had is a damaged black and white photo. We now have a colourised, perfectly restored image of him in our home. Incredible work. We are very happy customers indeed!”
Paul G, Canberra ACT

“Thank you, you’ve brought tears to my eyes, so many happy precious memories I can share with the rest of the family. I received the hard copy prints yesterday. Just perfect, thank you so much.”
Andrea R, Wahroonga NSW
