    I am a very good photo restoration skills. Do you think I am charging too much for this photo restoration jib? Is $130 too much?

      Depends on the client profile, difficulty, time you have, deadline client demands... ask for what you think is fair, and if you keep getting less work, then reconsidering prices is in order.

        Well you have only shown the starting point, so what does the finished product look like?

        How long will it take you to do the full restore?

        Are you talking Hong Kong dollars or other?

        What is the going rate for restoration services in your area?

          I am in the NYC area. I am sure my final product will be good. After seeing the photo scanned I realize it's a big job... Lot's of repairs that need to be done.

            Given your other question, it appears this is new for you. Charge whatever you can, but realize that nailing down rates will be a work in progress. If you're slow, you will spend way too much time regardless of what you charge.

              How Much?
              by kaulike
              I notice that most folks studiously avoid saying exactly how much they charge for a given restoration. I have no dreams of being able to supplant my current job, but it would be worthwhile to know what my skills are worth.
              I charge by the job (how much, and how do you estimate?)

              What would you charge for this restore?
              by Caitlin
              I'm toying with offering my services in the local area in photo restoration. With a full time job, I am not planning to turn this into a big business, but do want to charge realistic prices for my work.

              I've been rather shocked in browsing around some Australian photo restoration sites...

              Hello RP world!

              I just joined today and am in need of advice from anyone willing to give their 2 cents to a newbie (and I'm looking forward to becoming a regular patron). I mostly do freelance web and graphic design, though doing photo retouching is probably my more preferred type...

              Antique Photo Restoration Guidance
              by rpm4242

              I have performed quite a bit of work on restoring older photos thru Photoshop, but this 120 yr. old photo is presenting quite a challenge. I'm kind of having trouble knowing where to start. One of the main problems is that it is a picture of photo taken through an old dome glass...

              Restoration Too Dark
              by Colan

              I have been working on the circa 60 year old photo. It had very dark backgroung with faces blownout. I have tried several times, but my background is too black with no detail. Not the best picture to start with, but I feel it can be better than this. Any idea's...
