What we can’t do

Legs, arms and backgrounds can be grafted in from other photos, but if a face is too faded or damaged it’s guesswork to try and recover the image. If that’s the case, chances are we won’t achieve a likeness. As a general guide, if you can recognise the person in the photo and there is enough detail left, then we can recover it. If in doubt, send us a snap and we’ll take a good look.
