Reviews and Testimonials from Our Clients – 2014
Here are some of the emails that we received from clients in 2014. They are very happy with our photo retouching and repair of damaged old photographs, and you will be too!
DISCLAIMER: These testimonials are generally representative of what our clients write, although many or most clients don’t comment either positively or negatively. Just a handful of clients have sent complaints. We did not provide any discounts, freebies or other incentives to the people who sent the praise shown below, and we do not request testimonials from our clients…but we are happy to receive them!
- From a client who sent an old color photograph of his sweetheart: I appreciate the way you’ve worked with me on this…I just printed out the picture and it looks great. I am totally satisfied. Please send me a bill….Thanks again for the service your company has provided. I was thrilled that you responded back to me on Thanksgiving morning.

- From a client who sent a severely damaged photograph. With no other photos to work from, we had to create much of his grandfather’s face, but the client decided it did not look the way he remembered. As per our guarantee, that was OK and he did not owe anything: Thanks for the quick turn around and the great work. I know that the photo had some severe holes.
- From a client who sent several overlapping scans of a large painting. We re-assembled them, jigsaw style, and fixed several damage areas: Looks good Miles , thanks for your efforts.
