This course is for you if…

You have family photos that have been destroyed over the years.

You’ve tried to restore an old photo but the results weren’t great.

The cost of photo restoration has stopped you in the past.

Imagine you could…

  • Transform an old, worn-out, or bent image and put it on display.
  • Save hundreds of dollars by professionally restoring photos yourself.
  • Feel confident that you can restore any image - no matter how destroyed.

What you'll learn

Learn to fully restore any photograph in under 3 hours! 

In this course, you will take 3 old photos and fully restore them alongside me using the source files included.

Using a variety of tools like clone stamping, heal brushing, gradient maps, free transforms, curve, and level adjustments, you will learn to use these tools to restore ruined photos to their original glory and even better than the original!

“Whether you have family photos that have been passed down or you have lost the negatives for an old image, being able to restore these precious memories so they can be cherished for years to come is an amazing skill that all photographers should know.”

Hear what photographers have to say…

“My grandfather’s photos were what originally inspired me to get into photography. Having sat in a drawer for years they are completely destroyed. I’ve been trying to fix them for ages and this course had ALL the information I needed to get them fixed and now I can hang them on the wall!”

“I’ve been looking into having my photos professionally restored at a photo lab. All the quotes I received were much more than I could afford. This course not only saved me money and my photos but taught valuable techniques that I can use in my everyday editing.”

“What an awesome course! I had completely given up on ever being able to print some of my old work. With this training I’ve been able to restore the images, they look amazing and it took about 1/100th of the time I was expecting. Thanks Kelvin - another amazing course!!!”
