Photo Editing

I edit digital images. I will also convert all your old photographs and slides to digital images and clean the images up. In the 1970s a lot of the photographs taken with Instamatic cameras that were printed have turned 'red' with age. I can correct all your photographs to the original colours.

I work on Weddings, Kiddie's Parties, Maternity, Charity, People, Pets, Equine, Food, Maternity, Newborns, Engagements, Events, Shows, Sport etc.
