Our Best Photo Restoration Services


That lovely photo of your grandparents that’s looking a little faded? Maybe a photograph of yourself as a child that got creased. We fully understand and appreciate your needs. We handle black and white photographs as well colour with our photo restoration service. They will be lovingly restored to new digital images afterwards. Are you wondering how to restore deleted photos?

Almost 20 years ago, Supaphoto’s first order was to restore old photos. We remember it well. Our customer was over the moon. The photo was of a wedding that went way back to the roaring twenties. There were lovely images of ladies wearing the hats of the period and gentlemen looking dapper. The image had faded or tatty and one part was missing completely. That’s where we stepped in. 

Since then, our photo restore editing services have been used by over a thousand customers and we have seen all manner of requests. 

We even had one lady that wanted us to employ our photo restoration service to ‘improve’ her husband’s face on their wedding photo! In other words – to make him look happier!!  On another occasion, we had to add a dog to a family’s garden as she’d recently passed away and had spent so much time in their garden happily leaping around.

But these are rare examples. Most requests are for important family photographs that need restoring in one way or another including damaged photo restoration projects too.

Old Photo Restoration

We’ve also had lots or orders to digitally restore photos using our photo restoration service. It’s been an absolute pleasure to work on many of them. Our clients range from everyday private individuals like you and I to numerous museums, institutions and professional photographers. Wedding photographers are also frequent callers.  

We were also so happy when we were asked to convert the archive of photos from film director Sir Richard Attenborough. It was an honour to have been chosen. As a result, literally hundreds of rare photos (and other items) can be viewed by the public and researchers.

But it doesn’t stop there, we’ve also been chosen to partner countless prestigious organisations such as the BBC and Virgin Atlantic. We love what we do and that’s reflected in the fact that we are frequently considered to be one of the best photo restoration services available.
