You have found the best DIGITAL restoration service in San Diego.  Since 1999, we have been restoring any type of damaged photo from any type of medium that can be scanned. It could be on glass, wood, tin and now film.  We specialize in vintage photos, starting with daguerreotypes, tintypes and cabinet cards and also digitally restore Documents, Paintings, Newspaper articles and photos that other restorers have turned down.  We want to help you restore your family history through photographs and documents.  That is how we developed our slogan; 


"Restoring Family History... One Photo At A Time..."


We are passionate about our restoration service and guest speaking to genealogy societies. If you want to know more about us and how we got started see our "Quick Bio".  Other services include scanning images to store on any digital device.  We give you tips on how and why creating a "Scrapbook" is important and show you how to turn your great photos into fabulous unique and personal "Custom Gifts".   


Our site is very informative and would take many visits to see it all, and we are always evolving, so please come back and tell a friend about us .  If you have any questions concerning your photographs, go to "Contact Us". Including if you already had work done and were not satisfied, email us a copy and we will tell you if we could have done better, seriously!

The majority of restored photographs are in the "Before & After Gallery" and if you love vintage photographs, don't miss our personal collection in the "Genealogy Corner". All rights reserved.
