Submit Your Photograph

It is really important to take a good scan of the photograph that you want to restore, therefore we recommend that you either post your original print to us or make an appointment to drop your photograph off at our studio.

We recommend place the photograph in a cardboard backed envelope and clearly write "DO NOT BEND" on the front.

Securely fasten the back with a piece of sellotape.

Scanning Recommendations

Photo restoration requires the original file to be high quality. When using a scanner ensure that the image is laid flat on the glass and the scanner is set to its highest setting.

When the scanner has finished, ensure that the image is sharp and in focus. Try and avoid a file format that will compress the image, best results are always TIF files.

Photos taken with a smartphone may not provide the best results. Use the button below for our top tips on scanning.

By providing photos to Merv Spencer Photography you confirm that you are the copyright owner or you have received permission from the copyright owner so that we can work on the supplied image.
