Forbes Photo Restoration

Our photo restoration and retouching service in Forbes is provided through our local partner Forbes Picture Framing.

They’ll discuss your restoration project with you and provide a quote, digitise your images and send them to us for restoration. They will send you a digital proof of the image, and once we’ve made any final adjustments to get it just right, Ned and the team can help you print and frame your newly restored photo.

I gave Flashback Photo two 1800s photos of my grandparents which were in a very poor condition. I could not believe how they have come up, with a clear picture of how Annie and David actually looked. Highly recommended!

Janice Coleman Evans, Collaroy Plateau NSW

Thank you, you’ve brought tears to my eyes, so many happy precious memories I can share with the rest of the family. I received the hard copy prints yesterday. Just perfect, thank you so much.

Andrea, Wahroonga NSW

A photo of my father as a young lad and a couple of old photos from late 1800’s/early 1900’s had seen better days. One was in a very poor condition and I was amazed at the transformation. Flashback did an excellent job on bringing all of them back to life. They were extremely helpful throughout the entire process and I have no hesitation in recommending them for any photo restoration.

Elizabeth W, Lane Cove

“Thank you so much James for the outstanding restoration and colourisation of my photo. The colours are exactly right and beautifully soft yet vibrant, which really brought the photo to life. My mother was ecstatic and said that looking at the photo made her feel young again. What you are doing makes a difference to people’s lives. This restored and colourised photo will be passed down through future generations.”
