Whether you live alone, or with a partner, or have a full house of family members, have a rummage through your stashed away boxes of old photographs. Pick out the ones which you always felt were too damaged to display and which you would like to see digitally restored to a professional standard.
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW…
When capturing your image, avoid strong direct light reflecting off the photograph(s). Use daylight wherever possible and a flat surface to place the photograph on (on white sheet of paper?). NEVER use a flash setting and avoid casting any shadows onto the image. Also, do not crop off damaged edges.
If any problems are anticipated with the supplied image, you will be informed before commencement of the digital restoration. Also, there are limitations to the complexity of supplied images. Anything approximating a battle scene from the Lord of the Rings trilogy will not be a practical restoration project. (Unless you have the budget!).
Your captured image should be emailed to me BEFORE YOU COMPLETE YOUR PURCHASE at email@example.com. If the file size is greater than 12Mb then please send to my email address via a file transfer website. An example of a good one to use is wetransfer.com but there are other equally good file transfer sites out there. Please contact me if you wish to have more than 5 images restored to discuss a discount on multiple purchases.
Your newly restored image can be made into double-sided postcards. Follow this LINK.
The minimum cost is £20 for a digital restoration, with 20% going to charity. That’s £4 from your purchase going to a good cause. The maths are that if you purchase to the value of £60, for example, then £12 of the fee goes to the charity. I will publish acknowledgements of donations to the charity as soon as this is received. The nominated beneficiary will be posted on the sales pages and may change over time, again, as the public health landscape changes.
The nominated charity is The Invisibles. The Glasgow-based organisation helps the homeless community. Click on the name above to find out a bit more about them.
This service is not for pre-published images which may be subject to copyright. This is about family and community. Please only send images taken by you, a friend or a family member or from your own personal family or extended family’s collection. No celebrity show business or sports images will be processed.
A good, clear photograph of your image must be supplied to as high a resolution as possible. Most mobile devices have good enough built-in cameras to achieve the necessary quality.
Make sure your order contains your currently used email address to receive your digitally restored image.
