Newcastle Photo Restoration, Retouching and Fine Art Printing

Our photo restoration and retouching service in Newcastle is provided through our local partner, Aaron Framed It.

They’ll discuss your your restoration project with you, digitise your images and send them to us for restoration and printing. Once your images have been restored, Aaron Framed It can help you frame your newly restored photograph.

We’re not a bulk retouching service and would prefer to limit any one order to five images. Our focus is on the few best images for display.

The maximum size image we can scan is 38 x 55cm.

What can our photo restorers do?

  • Stain removal

  • Crease removal

  • Colourise black and white photos

  • Re-colourise very faded colour photos

  • Digital document restoration

  • Recreate missing areas

  • Remove or add people/objects

  • Replace backgrounds

  • Remove mould and mildew

  • Recover depth and detail in very faded photos

Just wanted to let you know that I picked up our printed canvases from Aus In Focus this morning and I’m absolutely thrilled with the result! Thank you so much for your help with this project. I really couldn’t be happier!

I gave Vivid two 1800s photos of my grandparents which were in a very poor condition. I could not believe how they have come up, with a clear picture of how Annie and David actually looked. Highly recommended!

Janice Coleman Evans, Collaroy Plateau

A photo of my father as a young lad and a couple of old photos from late 1800’s/early 1900’s had seen better days. One was in a very poor condition and I was amazed at the transformation. Vivid did an excellent job on bringing all of them back to life. He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and I have no hesitation in recommending them for any photo restoration.

Elizabeth W, Lane Cove

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.
