Photo Repair Service
Anyone who has recovered JPG files from a damaged device will no doubt have seen a corrupt JPG. Due to the way JPG files store data damaged files tend to show areas out of alignment, banded or completely grey. Our photo repair service compliments our recovery service, when a client has asked us to repair photographs we’ve recovered from damaged devices. We are now offering this as a standalone service to clients.
JPG Repair Process
This is a manual process, every file must be repaired by hand. We examine each file to determine the locations of any corruption in the data and cut it from file. We then the use specialised software to adjust the positioning and correct any colour differences. After this stage most images will then need a quick edit in some photo editing software to touch up any damaged areas.

Files which have had their header information corrupted can be repaired by using a known good photo from the same device with the same settings, carving the corrupt data from one and using the good information from the other. Without a good image to act as a donor we are unable to repair the image.
There are a number of scenarios where data is missing or when it has been encrypted that prevent us from restoring photo. We’re not able to tell without checking the specific file.
