IMAGE RESTORATION AND MANIPULATION

 

 

YOUR IMAGES CAN BE EDITED, RESTORED AND COLORIZED.

 

  • Editing images to remove or add a person, object or background
  • Image restoration of worn or damaged photos
  • Retouching to remove spots, scratches, mildew or water marks
  • Colour correction of faded images to its natural colours or an enhanced colour treatment
  • Colourization for black and white images
  • Converting colour to back and white
  • Antiquing images to appear aged
  • Image preparation for print

 

"Seventeen professional years experience."

 

 

I PREPARE YOUR IMAGES ACCORDING TO YOUR BOOK’S PRINTING PROCESS

 

I contact your printer to gather all the proper printing requirements to properly prepare your images according to the printing processes in collaboration with colour management.

 

 

I KEEP YOUR ORIGINAL PHOTOS UNTOUCHED

 

Whether I scan your photos or photo images are supplied, I only modify a digital copy from your originals which I duplicate using an editing program. Your original photos are untouched. This leaves me with a safekeeping image for my reference.

 

 

THE SOFTWARE THAT I USE

 

I use the Adobe Photoshop editing program for photos and Epson for scanning photos.
