Email attachments should be less than 10Mb if you have larger files please send
them on a disc or as several emails. If you ahve other file types please send them
on a disc. Never send us by post the only copy you have of a valuable original, always
keep a copy or scan just incase it is lost in the post!
Sending us digital images If you are emailing images please send them as Jpegs as
they take less space, do not compress them less than 6 to ensure no loss of quality.
If you prefer to send us images in either Tiff or Bitmap please send them on a disc
Exposure It is often possible to lighten up a dark or very dark image and produce
excellent results but it is very difficult to make a good Photograph from an over
exposed or very light image, as it is impossible to create detail or texture in
a burnt out white area of an image. If you have several images of the same subject
some very dark and some very light it is often possible to create a good photograph
by combining them together this technique is very useful to retain detail in the
shadow and high light areas of a photograph.
Fuzzy Pictures It is possible to make a blurred picture to look less soft but it
will never look as good as a sharp image.
Colour correction If your image has a bad colour cast it is often possible to reduce
or completely remove the colour error.
Colour calibration Computers and printers as well as the human eyes see images differently.
This is why the output from one camera or printer may be different from another.
The image files we return will be balanced to give good results on printers which
have been correctly set up,.You may find it necessary to fine tune your printer controls
to adjust the image to your suite your personal preference. If your image has a bad
colour cast it is often possible to reduce or completely remove the colour error.
Colour replacement To change a colour with in an image to a different colour is straight
forward, ie the colour of a dress or machine.
Closed eyes/Head or face swop please supply an additional image of the same person
with the eyes open, this should be taken at a similar angle and if possible also
with the same lighting and size as the original.
Backgrounds replaced or removed, we have a wide selection of background images suitable
for most subjects from painted studio back drops to images, textures and single tones.
Product repairs or modifications Often images of prototypes of products need enhancing
or changing prior to publication. In a brochure.
Black and white tints Convert a whole or part of an image to B/W can produce great
eye catching effects.
Raw Files some high quality camera can produce raw files as an option. These are
basically the image data straight from the image sensor, they are very useful when
colour correcting images taken indoors without flash. These images tend to have
very large file sizes, it may be better to send these to us on a disc in the post..
