Photo Restoration Melbourne

Peter King Retouching Studio is a home based business that first started in our Glen Iris studio on the 18th of February 1986.

In that time we have restored literally thousands of photographs for customers.

Needless to say, there have been many changes in how photo restorations are made in that time.

Originally the tools of a retoucher were the air brush and darkroom with a limited range of possibilities for photographic restoration.

Todays digital technology has made a vast improvement to what can be achieved; from complex composite restorations,  to restorations of severely damaged photographs.

We have evolved with the changing technology and now offer state of the art equipment and software but our care and attention to quality stays the same as back in 1986.
