How much does Photo Restoration Cost?

Photo restoration prices can vary greatly but this site will give you a better idea of how much our photo restoration services cost, but to be accurate we will need to see the image to give you a quote and that quote will stand. Each photo that comes into our shop or uploaded to us we will evaluate the cost according to the extent of time and extensity of workmanship that will be envolved for each photos uniqueness. to give you an idea our Simple Digital File Retouching starts as low as $5.00 and for our extreme restoration work can go as high as $500.00 or even more.

Extreme photo restoration
extreme photo restoration craftsmanship

This photo give's you a small idea of the complexity that is involved here, this photo came to me from California in a letter size envelope in approximately 100 pieces, I literally had to pour the pieces out of the envelope then had to take each piece and place it down in the right place and mount it down placing all the other pieces together like a puzzle the best I could then i had to scan the image and restore it. The cause of the damage was that this photograph was eaten by their dog. The photo is the customers dad's first basketball score, truely a historical family piece to treasure. The photo image sample above here doesn't really show the real scope of the complexity.

Need a Quote?

We always give the total cost before we work on the restoring of the photo, Please be assured you are not under any obligation to start the work just because we gave you a quote. You must remember not all photos like out of focus pictures or images that are totaly missing detail can be restored but we will let you know when we see your image if its restorable or not. sometimes i need to do a partial scan of the photo to see the detail that is left in certain areas of the image before quoting, we will not charge you for that scan. When evaluating the photo if scanning is not needed the cost of the scan will be charged if it is a large image.

Print on Canvas
We can print the image of your photo or painting on to canvas or watercolor paper using a large format archival giclee printer.
After that we can texturize your print if needed with actual texture in some cases we even apply paint to certain areas of the work to make a real work of art.
I use Giclee printing on all of my latest fine art paintings.
Yes we can reproduce your photos or paintings into archival Giclee prints on canvas or watercolor paper.
Our large format Giclee printing service is awesome with a wide gamut range of great color making your prints just come alive.

And if you wish we can finish it off with top quality picture framing which is also offered at Brian's Gallery along with plaque mounting, and old style frames for your old prints.
With artistic talent, we can even turn your ordinary photo into a beautiful painting, truly a brush stroke work of art.
It is virtually indistinguishable from a traditional oil painting. But because of the uniqueness of this artform, each painting must be seen to give a fair quote.
