The #1 Photo Restoration Services In Chicago, IL

Family photo albums and the memories they capture are some of the most precious things a person can own; unfortunately, time tends to wear them down. Even the most well-kept photos are susceptible to water damage, mold growth, and general degradation through folds, creases, and stains. 

But does that mean your faded and water-damaged photographs are entirely beyond repair? Of course not.

At Image Restoration Center, we offer the fastest and most reliable photo restoration services in Chicago. Our highly-trained team is well-versed in modern photo restoration techniques and can breeze through any photo repair project with ease – book our services today!

What Our Company Can Do

Anyone can try their hand at photo restoration and enhancement, but the truth is that professionals do it best. That’s because the process requires a working knowledge of light, color, and photography on top of being proficient with specialized software. 

Our talented technicians have mastered all these and more, so we can also provide high-quality services to address all of your photo restoration needs!

Why Families All Over Chicago, IL, Love Us

We recognize that every family photo represents an important time in history for each of our customers – that’s why we tackle each photo restoration project to the best of our abilities. 

Whenever you request photo repair at Image Restoration Center, your photographs go through a thorough internal approval process. We do this because every old photo is different and requires careful planning. What works for some photographs may be totally inappropriate for others, and vice versa. 

But the real reason your family will love doing business with us? We simply care about the quality of our work and your satisfaction. Our team of historical experts, photographers, and software savants will work tirelessly to achieve your vision every time.

As Simple As 1 2 3

Having your photo restored at our studio is incredibly easy – it’s almost like magic. 

Whether you need color correction, damage repair, or another type of service, the process is the same. All you need to do is prepare the photograph that’s sustained water damage, fading, or general degradation. We handle the rest! 

Here’s how to get your family photos restored in three easy steps:


Upload The Originals

The first step to having your photograph completely restored is simply to upload your photos onto our secure servers! While we recommend using a scanner for the best possible results, a snapshot taken on your phone is fine, too. 

Once you’ve prepared your photos, all you’ll need to do is navigate to our website and upload the images onto our secure servers. We take over as soon as you’re ready!


Leave It To Us

After all your photos reach our studio servers, we immediately start our thorough (but fast) approval process. We consult with our in-house historical experts and photographers to identify the best possible restoration process for your photograph. 

All edits, refinements, and enhancements are completed in-studio within 72 hours or less!


Receive Your Photos

The hardest part is over. All you have to do is wait for your photos to show up in your email inbox or at your doorstep! 

Customers that have chosen to receive a physical print will still receive digital copies of their photos before shipping anything out. Please note that shipping takes a while, but we promise it’s more than worth the wait for your studio-quality print!

“This is my uncle Jimmy. My Pop used to tell me he was mischievous when he was young, and I think you can see that in this photo. Hard to imagine that he ended up becoming a high-school teacher! He’s the one who taught me how to ride a bike, he also used to help me with my grades, and he taught me to stand up to bullies.”
