How it works
To get started, upload your photo here, or get it scanned at one of our partner businesses. We’ll provide a quote and ask for a 50% deposit if you accept. In two to three days we’ll email you a digital proof of the restored image, and make any changes as requested. On approval we’ll send the invoice for the balance, and provide a new high resolution image on payment. We can also post a print directly to you, or to one of our partner stores for framing.
We work with a maximum of five images per order.
How to get your photos to us
To restore photos we need a digital copy of the original.
There are two ways to make this happen:
Upload your digital image
Scan at 600dpi TIFF or JPEG format at any Officeworks or use your own scanner. Then upload your digital image to our Dropbox.
Scan at one of our partner locations
We work with framers and print shops in Sydney, Brisbane, Newcastle, Gosford, Adelaide and regional Victoria. See locations for details.
