Factors Which Can Affect the Cost of Your Photo Restoration

The detailed service we offer takes a personal and experienced approach to repair your image.  Here’s some factors that can influence the price:

1) The Extent of the Damage

From slightly sun-faded family portraits, to patches of water damage and even images that have almost completely disintegrated. More complex damage does take extra time and expertise, so the price will vary depending on how the image is affected. On more complex photos I do tend to work in short periods over a number of days to avoid the dreaded image blindless.

2) How Much Research is Required?

If an image is badly faded or ripped, sometimes it does take a little research to authentically recreate the missing segment of the photo. Textures, lighting and shadows also play a part in the recreation.

So, How Much Does Photo Restoration Cost?

The answer to this question varies depending on the quality and damage. Prices for our Photo Restoration Service start at the equivalent of €12, while the prices increase as more work is required on the photo. However, I will give you a quote first … so no surprises.

High-end photo restoration doesn’t need to be overly expensive and I will always try to keep photo restoration accessible to all and never cut back on quality in the intricate work I do.


At the end of the day you are the one to decide to purchase or not.

Photo Restoration Poem

A photograph is something to adorn
Handled with love it still gets worn
Fragile as the memories it holds
It fades with time, creases with folds.

In honour of memory of life’s past
Repairing old photos makes memories last.
A little magic, some passion and skill
A photo restored is such a thrill

A photo restored is a memory made clear
A memory that reflects a time so dear
Bringing back memories to those who care
Restoring old photos for moments to share.

Cultural Origins of Popeye

Popeye the Sailor is a cartoon fictional character created by Elzie Crisler Segar. The character first appeared in the daily King Features comic strip, Thimble Theatre, on January 17, 1929, and Popeye became the strip’s title in later years; Popeye has also appeared in theatrical and television animated cartoons.

Popeye’s story and characterization vary depending on the medium. Originally, Popeye got “luck” from rubbing the head of the Whiffle Hen; by 1932, he was instead getting “strength” from eating spinach. Swee’Pea is definitively Popeye’s ward in the comic strips, but he is often depicted as belonging to Olive Oyl in cartoons. The cartoons also occasionally feature members of Popeye’s family who have never appeared in the strip, notably his lookalike nephews Peepeye, Pupeye, Pipeye, and Poopeye.


Local folklore in Chester, Illinois, Segar’s hometown, claims that Frank “Rocky” Fiegel (b. January 27, 1868) was the real-life inspiration for the character Popeye. He had a prominent chin, sinewy physique, characteristic pipe, and a propensity and agile skill for fist-fighting. Fiegel died on March 24, 1947 never having married. His gravestone has the image of Popeye engraved on it. The town of Chester erected a statue of Popeye in Fiegel’s honor, which still stands today.

According to Popeye historian Michael Brooks, Segar regularly sent money to Fiegel.

Separate hometown residents of Chester also are claimed to have served as inspiration for two other Segar characters including Dora Pascal, an uncommonly tall, angular lady who ran a general store in town. She even donned a hair bun close to her neckline. William “Windy Bill” Schuchert, a rather rotund man who owned the local opera house, was the seed for the character J. Wellington Wimpy. He would even send out his employees to purchase hamburgers for him between performances at a local tavern named Wiebusch’s, the same tavern that Fiegal would frequent and engage in fistfights.

In 2015, businessman Greg Morena refuted the claim that Popeye originated in Chester, Illinois. Instead, he stated that Santa Monica, California was the birthplace of the character and that a Norwegian sailor by the name of Olaf “cap” Olsen served as the impetus for the character. Research presented in Jim Harris’ 2009 “Santa Monica Pier: A Century of the Last Great Pleasure Pier” raised the idea that while living in Santa Monica, Segar based the physical attributes on Olsen; even though Harris never made a definitive claim.
