Photo Renovate was established in 1998 and grew out of a love for photo restoration and manipulation and a love for old photos. Combine our love of photos and a love of computers it was natural for us to get into photo restoration.Sandra started illustrating her son's stories while they were at school over 25 years ago with a very primative computer, a commodore 64. Her love for computers and graphics grew from those humble beginnings to give us Photo Renovate today. Improving precious photos brings us a lot of joy. We love the challenge of a difficult photo and we strive to make each and every photo the best it can be. We are located at the foot of the Blue Mountains in Sydney's west. We do not have a shopfront, which helps keep our prices down, if you would like to visit us to discuss your project we are happy to make an appointment to discuss your restoration and photographic needs in person, just contact us. All of our work is done digitally, therefore your original photo is never harmed in any way. Your memories are precious to us too.

Photo Renovate uses only licensed software: Adobe Photoshop CS5 and a full set of additional plug-ins. But we refrain from using computer filters when possible and work on each pixel individually to attain the best results.
Once as we quote a price we will stand by it, providing you do not change your requirements. Should you change requirements we reserve the right to adjust the price accordingly.
Due to the increasing problem of fraud on the internet we are no longer accepting orders without a deposit of at least 50% of the quoted price. We have been trusting in the past but unfortunately our trust has been abused by unscrupulous people who want us to do work for them and then try to avoid paying for it. Therefore we have reluctantly decided that a deposit is required BEFORE we commence any job over the internt.
