Old photographs can sometimes be restored so that blemishes caused by age or folding of the photograph can be removed.This is a photograph of my great granddad. By taking a digital copy of the image in my mother's photo-album with an iPad I was able to get an image of high enough resolution to neaten up the image for my ancestry site.
Should you have a precious old photo that you would like me to have a go at restoring please take a digital image of the photograph and send that - do not send the original photo.
Photo restoration takes time. The cost of such work would be about £30 to £50, depending on the amount of work involved.
