Photo Restoration Service

Bring new life to old or damaged photos

The professional restoration service from PiciScan can restore treasured memories. Sometimes a photo will have become damaged: accidentally torn, faded through age or become wet. Whatever has happened to your photo our photo restoration service can rescue it for you.

Your photo will be scanned at 1200 dpi and returned to you in its current condition. We will work on the scanned image - now a digital photo - removing tears, fixing colour ... whatever the photo needs.

Once work has been completed, the restored photograph will be archived to a DVD-R. You can print the image, to whatever size you like. Why not enjoy your restored memory as a stretched canvas print? Or, simply keep the image on the DVD-R to enjoy your restored photograph for generations to come.

You only pay when you are completely happy

As each photo requiring restoration is unique, it is hard to tell you exactly how long the service will take with your photo. However, we will provide you with an upper estimate and this will be the most you will pay. If it takes us less time to restore your photo than we originally estimated, then we will charge you less. If it takes longer, you will pay no more than the original estimate.

Our photo restoration service is charged at an hourly rate of £15.60 per hour. Below are some examples of work we have carried out previously, along with a guide to how long each took to restore and the work involved. Any price will include the cost of scanning your original photo.

Box Sizing: Border-Box

Posted: 24 March 2016

I first came across box-sizing: border-box when it cropped up in a temporary colleague's CSS. I found it pretty annoying when I picked up work that he'd started as it seemed to get in the way. This was because, as I said in a previous post on margin ...
