Comments By Photo Restoration Customers

I came from California to visit my father in the White Rock BC area and he had a folded torn photo of his mother / my grandmother. I thought it would make a nice gift to have this restored. The staff at the local TD Canada Trust bank googled photo restoration and found Ric Wallace. He met us up town and in a few days before I left back for California, Ric delivered the final restored photo along with the original unharmed. My father cried when he saw the final image of his mother which we got a few copies for myself and other relatives. Ric Wallace is a true master of the computer.

I found Ric Wallace online and he was able to restore my grandparents’ badly damaged photo with parts missing and turn it into a prized cherished heirloom for my whole family.

Consider purchasing a DIGITAL EXACT copy of the FINAL HI-RES photo at 300 DPI (JPG) – for an additional fee. (not included with standard packages) Digital files maybe kept on our storage devices for a limited time and may be deleted without notice after services are rendered and paid in full. Customers who purchased digital files are recommended to have many copies on disk, USB and/or cloud based storage. Digital computer files do not fade or disappear like old negatives or prints. Making prints from-the high res digital files will allow the highest quality image to be printed. Sharing this file means family or friends can look after getting their own prints with their own money, saving you $$$. Using output services such as Walmart, drug stores or home printers will vary in quality. PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT allowed to copy photographs that have a copyright stamp or symbol on them, such as school photos, team photos, magazines, newspapers, etc. If you have a photo with a stamp on the back please contact the listed person or company for reprints. If the photographer has passed away or the company is out of business we would have to review the situation. Anyone with an original negative film will be considered the lawful owner of the image. Any prints or digital files are your property to do with as you wish, once paid in full. Any future reprints would have to be ordered by you or have your approval in writing. We need the photo supplied loose -- not framed or behind glass. Photos larger than 8.5" x 11" will have to copied using a camera on a tripod as opposed to scanning on a high resolution flatbed scanner. These will have a higher cost to digitize the image as it is considered a photography service, not a scanning service. We reserve the right to refuse to copy obscene, offensive, unlawful or objectionable materials. Please contact us for any concerns you may have.

Having photos restored of my ancestors will allow me to share with all the new relatives I am getting in contact with because of my recent DNA test from

Money well spent.

Attending my grandfather’s funeral in the United Kingdom, the only photo available for display was my grandfather’s passport photo – in his actual passport.

Like other relatives, I snapped a full frame photo with my iPhone. Ric Wallace was able to remove the passport stamp and make an enlargement for my mother’s birthday.

He was able to work with the image emailed from my cell phone as that was the only photo I had,
