Jayne W, Berowra NSW

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.

Andrea, Wahroonga, Sydney NSW

James from Vivid did a wonderful job retouching my Grandmother’s photos. I would highly recommend Vivid to anyone wanting to digitise and restore their old photos.
