Attention please

My website is being rebuilt with a new theme to give viewers a much better viewing experience.
All the tabs at the top are working correctly so you can still browse the site for services or contact information.

I am working as fast as possible to update the layout, pages and posts so that viewers can find things a lot easier and experience all the great work I’m doing here at Photo RestoreUK.

Whilst this work is being carried out please enjoy some of the new viewing possibilities and hopefully notice the faster page loads etc’.

If you find anything missing I would appreciate you letting me know via the contact tab. There will be discounts on work should you be able to assist me 😀

Next few days

Over the next few days I will be concentrating on the main layout which should look and feel much better than my older theme.
I have already tested this new theme out at the designers site where they let you play around with all the functionality that’s available. So I have a pretty good idea as to how I want the site to run. If you have any ideas or perhaps a wish list in mind just drop me a line from the contacts page.

You will notice a lot of content is not related to my business, in other words plenty of “Lorem ipsum”. These are page setups for me to work on at a later date.

Long term

After the theme has been suitably organised I will then move on to the long haul :(
Re-writing all the posts and pages will be necessary to conform with good’ole  Google keep changing their algorithms. Massive job that has to be done in between the constant work that’s sent into me.
The best way I guess is to concentrate on the newer posts first then slog it out with all the archived pages and posts. It’s going to hurt my head and no doubt send me bogeyed but I’m sure it will all be for the best.

Presentation of my work

I made this video representation of my work way, way back when I first learnt how to use some of the elements in Adobe Premier.
It still looks pretty cool and covers most of what I do but it needs refreshing and bringing up to date with all the new techniques I’ve learned. I’ve also added some more services to my portfolio so these need adding too.
Please click and enjoy the video which may help you choose what you’re looking for and it will hopefully also entertain you.


About Me

Hi, I’m Steve, thank you for visiting my site.
IMG_0006aThe first thing you should know about me is that I am totally committed to low cost , I give you better quality than most in the business, and I have far more imagination than most of them. In the unlikely event that someone has quoted you less than myself, let me know and I will knock 10% of their quoted price.
How do I do it? Firstly it’s a hobby that still gives me a kick even after 40 years. Secondly I hate people being ripped off by so-called restorers who pretend how difficult something is knowing that you haven’t a clue. The simple fact is that modern software does most of the job for them. And hey, my degree in art has served me well for more than 30 years so I know what I am doing. It costs you nothing to enquire and no need to pay if you don’t like the resulting work.
There is no ending to my portfolio, I am capable of doing many things and if I come across something unknown to me that’s a wowza! I love a challenge and haven’t failed yet. Just recently I was asked if I could transfer VHS to digital format, so I went and bought a brand new VHS player/recorder at great expense and completed the job for £15.00. Not much sense in that, but it’s what I do……..


Test column

  • My Services

    This is a test post though I should tell you right now that services are endless. Check the tab in the header for some of the things I can do for you.

  • Serving the community

    This is a test post but I must inform you that lots of my work is done for free to local charities. I don’t get much free time from my work but helping the needy makes me feel I’m worth something.

  • Lightning Fast

    This is a test post but I must tell you that one thing is for certain, I am not lightening fast. I take pride in my work which means taking the right amount of time to complete something. If that means chatting with you to determine colours, repair or anything that will give you a better result, then that’s what I will do.

Products for purchase

Every now and then I like to produce something for myself which pleases me. I’ve been asked in the past if it was possible to buy some of them so I now offer these items at very reasonable prices.
There will be a link here soon so you can view them all on one page. Most will be priced at around £6.00 upwards which I think you will agree is enormously good value for money.
In the mean time, should you see anything you like just contact me from the tab at the header and I will arrange something with you.

Don’t take my word for it…

Just got your email and like the difference, especially of the guy on the back row who just has a subtle skin tone difference now. Yeah I am really, really happy with it.


I contacted Steve, who asked me to supply some extra photos of myself and my partners faces so that he could edit them in to restore the photo. Really worth the money, (very reasonable!) and im so pleased with the results. Thanks very much Steve.


Fantastic work from Steve, took a dodgy black and white photo of my husband, cleaned all the scratches, colourised the main body and removed the photo bomber. Really, really pleased with the work, so pleased, that he is fixing some more pics for me.


Steve did an excellent job in bringing back an old photo back to life. Patient and professional service provided in restoring and colourising an old photo. An excellent price quoted and a very friendly service provided!


Exceptional value for money and service. This guy Steve at Photo restore responds in the most polite manner and listens to everything you require.
His completion of my photo was everything I required and more. He also made me a free addition to my picture which was a colour version and much appreciated.
He tells me he is not in it for the money and judging from what I paid, he won’t be buying a yacht anytime soon. Highly recommend this company.

Steve always produces work of an extremely high quality. A bride requested that wedding guests were removed from an image, just leaving the bride, groom and bridesmaid. It was a complex editing job, yet the results from Steve were outstanding and the bride is extremely happy, as are we!

We commissioned Photo Restore (Steve) to work on an old black and white photo of a local street scene which is to be used in our shop.
The remit was to add colour and give a modern twist to an old (traditional) image.
To say we were thrilled by the result is an understatement, the photo has been brought to life.
We can’t praise Steve’s work highly enough.
