About Us

At HotPress, we restore some of the best historical images of Australia, concentrating mainly on Melbourne. 

Starting with an original digital image we painstakingly remove scratches, mould, creases, fingerprints and damage caused by poor handling and storage.

Sometimes we spend over 50 hours on an image, working at the pixel level to get the image back to its original state. 

Even though we have thousands of images in our database, we only offer for sale images that have been restored as far as possible. A lot of fabulous images are just too badly damaged and would take too long (if at all possible) to restore. We regularly add more images to our website, so it's worth coming back to check on new images.
