We Do More Than Just Photo Restoration, Wellington!

Not everyone can afford to keep photographs like artwork. Even museums and galleries have photographs, negatives, or slides that are ripped, full of scratches, or otherwise damaged and in need of repair. That’s why services like Image Restoration Center exist – to help both families and professional artists restore old images.

If you have photos that need fixing, we’ll repair them for an affordable quote. We don’t even need the originals! We can colour, size, crop, and edit photos, restoring them to their former glory with just scans or snapshots. 

We provide the following photo restoration and image editing services:

  • Comprehensive repair of tears, stains, scratches, cracks, or water damage
  • Addition/removal of elements/people in the background of your photo
  • Mould and mildew removal
  • Image resizing service
  • Colourisation of black and white or sepia photos
  • Text document repair
  • Photo printing and delivery service

Why Choose Image Restoration Center?

Local shops in Wellington or the Lower Hutt area might use shortcuts with their photo restoration software…but not Image Restoration Center. We get that each photo has memories behind it so we take extra care with every repair. 

The bottom line? With IRC, you can bring old photos of birthdays, weddings, and other memories back to life! 

One of the benefits of our expert-level photo restoration is that we work from digitised images, so you can keep the original photos. Plus, you don’t have to make an appointment for high-quality photo restoration. 

Our business is 100% online – you can send in requests and receive the result without ever leaving your home. You can even order a physical print to be delivered anywhere in New Zealand!

Get Your Restored Photos Back In 1 2 3

Photo restoration is as easy as 1, 2, 3. You can keep your original photograph and printing is available.


Upload The Originals

Fill out our form with your email and any special requirements (i.e. crop out a person, change the size, colour a sepia image, repair sun damage, etc). 

We don’t need negatives or the original image! We can work with a photo from your phone, but a scan is better as it will create a higher resolution image.


Leave It To Us

It takes 1 – 3 days for our photo restoration services. If you need your photo in a hurry, we can put a rush on it for an extra fee.


Receive Your Photos

In just a few days, you’ll receive your photo in the inbox of your email. 

If you ordered physical prints of your photos, those will take a few days longer, no appointment or pick-up necessary. We only print on the best quality paper – you can put them up on the wall for your children and grandchildren to enjoy for generations to come!

It will take a maximum of 3 days to receive your digital restoration. If you can’t wait that long we offer 24-hour express delivery for an extra fee. Physical prints will take a little bit longer, it may take up to 10 days to receive your studio-quality photo.

We can restore almost any photo! However, we will be unable to repair images that are damaged to the point of having completely unrecognizable faces. With that said, providing a high-quality scan can make a world of difference!

By default, your order will be delivered digitally via email! You also have the option to order studio-quality prints right to your doorstep.

We offer unlimited revisions on any order! We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee – either you’re completely satisfied with the result, or we refund that image.

Yes. Image Restoration Center now offers additional physical delivery options, and that includes a studio-quality photo print. However, we will only print pictures that have been through our photo restoration process – meaning we don’t offer photo printing as a solo service.

If you have specific instructions you’d like to add to your order, enter those instructions in the notes section at the bottom of the upload page.

If you have any questions about our process or require after-sales support, don’t hesitate to drop us a message detailing your concerns. All we need is your full name and email address so we can get back to you right away!




“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.”
