Professional Photo Restoration
We scan original photos and documents, and undertake careful restoration work to bring them back to life. You’ll receive a new high resolution digital file to view on screen, make prints, and share among family and friends. We can also print and post the restored image to you.
Prices range from $60 for basic jobs to $200 plus for images requiring major restoration and reconstruction. We’ll provide an upfront estimate to restore your photo based on the amount of work that needs to be done.

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!
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.
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.
