PICTURE EFFECTS

Changing Backgrounds/Editing Photos Color, Brightness, and Size Corrections Animation

Various things can be done to pictures to make them interesting.  Backgrounds of pictures can be touched up if it has something undesirable in it.

These are examples.

There are many different variations on each one as well.  If you would like to see how your picture looks with one of these effects just let us know.  Pictures of people look particularly interesting as you can see toward the bottom of this page.

Changing Backgrounds/Editing Photos

Kay took pictures of one of our other clients, Guns and Garters.  They reenact the late 1800's.
There were no chain link fences or cars back then so she removed those things from their pictures.
In this case a wooden fence was added.

A scrap-booker needed to have some family portraits modified to resemble photos she saw:

Animation

Multiple pictures can be put together into an animated graphic.

These are the pictures used to make the animated graphics.
They were cropped and manipulated to make them look good.
There are a lot more examples of this process at Guns and Garters, one of our clients.

 

Color, Brightness, and Size Corrections

A picture taken under the right conditions is the best, but often bad pictures can be corrected.

Barn
This is the original picture taken in the late afternoon.  It has been resized so it will fit here.
Barn Barn Barn Dog
Cropped to remove date. Lightened. Do you have any of those pictures taken in the 1970's that turned orange over the years?  The orange tint can probably be removed just like it was added to this picture. Cropped to show just the dog.
