Photo Manipulation

Getting exactly what you want through a camera or from a stock photo is nearly impossible. It's the image retouching on the post production end that puts all the finishing touches required for professional use. Using Adobe Photoshop™, a variety of changes and alterations can be done to make any image look close to perfect.

Color Correction / Matching

Do not assume the color you see on screen will be the color produced on a print run. When final color needs to match a product, clothing for example, a color workflow needs to be utilized.

  • Our color workflow is calibrated to the industry standard SWOP™ using Postershop™ RIP software and ICC profiles.
  • We deliver press ready proofs and files that will reproduce almost exactly like your original.
  • We can work directly with your preferred printer to match what their specific presses would output.

Photo Retouching

Photo retouching is needed when it's impossible to get the image you want from a single photograph or if certain elements of an image need to be changed or removed. Corrections on sceneries may include:

  • Removing objects
  • Duplicating parts of a scene
  • Adding more image to extend a canvas
  • Composing multiple images into one shot
  • Adjusting skin tones
  • Minimizing wrinkles
  • Removing blemishes
  • Reshaping body parts

Area Masks / Clipping Paths

In order to isolate specific objects or areas of an image, area masks or clipping paths need to be applied to a photo file. For clipping paths:

  • Done when products need to be "cut out" from the background for placement in a catalog layout or web page
  • Delivered in the most common file format *.eps (encapsulated post-script)
  • Can also deliver *.tif, *.psd and *.jpg

Area masks are better for:

  • Prepping a file for selecting areas or objects that would require a softer edge
  • A section you want to manipulate, but has various sized objects blocking it
  • Cutting out pieces from different shots for merging into a single shot

HDR Photo Merging

High-Dynamic Range, or HDR, is a composition of shots taken at different exposures and focus. It is then merged in post-production to grab detail that would normally be lost in very light or dark areas or objects at various distance.
