Services Available- Photo restoration.


Photographs hold treasured memories which are precious and often irreplaceable.  However, the passage of time can leave photos faded and even damaged.  My photo restoration service can breathe new life into your old photos.

I can refresh the colours and repair damage.  The process involves a scan in the original photo, then the restoration / repair is turned on the copy. The repaid copy can then be printed or provided on a memory stick to take to a printer.

Restoration and print stroke memory stick €40.00 per photo.  A €10.00 discount is applied per photo for two or more restorations.  (maximum five photos per job).

Please note if the damage is too great the restoration may be limited or not possible.  An assessment will be done before any work is started. Most single restorations can be done with in the €40.00 budget, however if there is a lot of damage they may be an additional cost.

Please feel free to contact me for more information about this service.

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.
