JPEG Repair Service pricing info

Your confidentiality and privacy are guaranteed, and the service is performed on a secure, private computer. If necessary, I will sign any NDA or other agreements prior to recovering data. After completing image repair I will delete all your images from my PC.

This service is for existing JPEG files that are corrupt. It is not a file recovery service! If you need to recover lost or deleted files from a memory card, use JPEG Recovery LAB instead. If you want me to repair photos that were recovered using different software, I suggest you first try JPEG Recovery LAB as well.

Service and pricing

Pricing is done by means of JPEG repair units. One Unit costs $5.95 (plus VAT if applicable – EU residents mostly).

Based on diagnostics I determine price per photo. If you agree on price and me repairing your photo(s), price of diagnostics is subtracted. You only pay for photos that are successfully repaired. I will contact you after I have examined your photos, and what the cost per image will be. I can also explain how I decide on a price.

Item Remarks Purchase
JPEG Repair Unit  Order ONE unit in advance if you need to me examine your corrupt files. For JPEG Repair and extraction of JPEGs from corrupt RAW files, wait for me to contact you.  $5.95

Prices are ex. VAT (if applicable).

Pricing explained:

Below are estimated prices assuming you need me to repair ONE photo. Photos in category 1 can often be repaired in batch. The higher the number of photos I repair, the lower the cost ‘per piece’. Photos that fall into Category 2 and category 3 need to repaired photo-by-photo so larger numbers may not result in lower costs per repaired photo.

Pricing examples:

Category 1. If only header damage, repair cost would be $5.95 per file Category 2. If JPEG data is interrupted by local bit corruption repair cost would be $5.95 – $17.85 per file Category 3. Severely corrupted JPEG data, repair starts at 3 x JPEG repair unit = $17.85 per file 
JPEG with damaged or corrupt header Bit corruption in JPEG data Severe bit corruption, multiple bit corruption in JPEG data

What looks like category 3 corruption doesn’t always have to be though! In below example 200+ corrupted vacation/Holiday JPEG photos on a USB thumb drive. All severely corrupted, so this initially looks like a Category 3 case. However all photos were restored to original state for less than $100 total. Bottom line is that I actually have to examine the photos before I can estimate the price.
