How we can help

Even if you're a professional, it's not always possible to snap the perfect shot - there might be too many people in the way, someone in the group will blink just as you press the shutter or slight camera shake might ruin a picture. Or you later you may decide the picture would look better if the subject were in a different position or not in the picture at all. Instead of throwing out that near-perfect shot, give us a call and let us do our magic and turn it into the masterpiece it should be. 

Our retouching services include the following:

  • Correcting lighting and exposure problems.
  • Improving sharpness and clarity.
  • Fixing minor blur caused by camera shake.
  • Opening closed eyes.
  • Fixing facial features.
  • Turning frowns into smiles.
  • Clear-cutting subject onto blank transparency.
  • Changing or replacing backgrounds.
  • Changing or replacing subjects.
  • Creating panorama images.
  • Specialist graphic design effects.



There are limitations to what we can do, but we will do our best and are always happy to discuss a project with you for free with no obligations

The above is only a guideline. Every project is different and the time required to complete it may vary. We recommend you contact us for an estimate beforehand.

Sending us your images

Working from a hardcopy source will give the best results as we will create a digital copy using our professional photographic scanner. However, we understand you may be reluctant to part with your precious pictures, so you can scan them at home and send them to us following the guidelines below.

Please scan at:

  • 600 dpi resolution 
  • full colour RGB (even for black and white photos)
  • turn off all 'auto correction' and 'colour correction' options.

Save scan at maximum or 100% quality settings for JPEGs. This should result in file that is about 6-7MB in size for a standard sized photo print.
