Service Description

I'm here to work for you and make your portraits, products, and memories look more elegant and polished. Your projects are in great hands! The results reflect on your business and mine as well, so I want you to be completely satisfied.

If you have image files, I can convert, batch process, post process, archive, and do resolution or scale changes to suite your needs. You can email me files or we can use an FTP client. If you need negatives or photos scanned and retouched, I can do that as well.

If you have old photos or film that is scratched, torn, stained, blemished or defective in some other way, I can digitally repair the images for you.

If you need to have certain areas of an image removed, moved, transformed, or selected, for example: you want to remove a ring on a finger, change heads, trees added, background removed or replaced with something else...I can do that too.

If you just need simple enhancements, color correction and sharpening (in large or small quantities) I'm able to do that as well.

Graphic design projects are also welcome. Album covers are a specialty of mine.

And I'm really good with Powerpoint too! Attention to design is most important. You can have simple and minimalist or if your slideshow if for more creative types, I can do them with an artistic flair.
