Photo Restoration Lower North Shore

Our photo restoration and retouching service on Sydney’s Lower North Shore is provided through our local partner, Framing Life in Gladesville.

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

We’re 100% committed to providing excellent service and unrivaled quality – there’s no charge if you’re not delighted with the results.

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 Photo did an excellent job on bringing all of them back to life. He was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and I have no hesitation in recommending them for any photo restoration.

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, Sydney NSW

I gave Flashback 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!
