What should I charge for photo restoration?

Someone is asking me to do some photo restoration. It's about 11 photos. They also want them burned on a CD and printed. What should I charge for such a job? I have expert ability in Photoshop and have done some high end photo retouching/restoration but never charged for it. Below is one sample.

Re: What should I charge for photo restoration?

So here's a reply.
I use to charge no less than 20€. Sometimes is a tricky, complicated work.
About the price it depends of the work.
If I have digitals files and is very easy to extract people from there and make a
new composition 20€.
Restoration of old photos no less than 30€ and if process is complicated up from
5€ to 5€.
I never go down this prices, because is a manual job, I had to spend my time learning
it, praticising..etc I know some charge more, and others charge less, but in my
photoshop I use to have one or two restorations a month (among all my other works).
I prefer to loose a job than charge less than theese prices. And many times people
think that all computer assist jobs are made with a snap.And, as you know, computer
is our tool.
So, beware, before making plans for the restoration, say the price you're gonna charge
for it. Many people think that is a cheaper job.
