We offer 2 basic types of photo products: printed photos and digital image files.
All digital image files will be sent to your email address. If the file is too large to send via email, there is an option to download your image off our server. The purchased image will be kept online until you let us know that you have downloaded it. Please note: No refunds on digital images.
All printed photos are professionally colour corrected, cropped, fine tuned and printed on Fujifilm photo paper.
We stand behind our prints 100%! No-questions-asked satisfaction guarantee!
So what does photo cropping mean? Cropping is the process of altering the image to make it fit within the aspect ratio of the photo size. Standard sizes are 4x6, 5x7 or 8x10 inches. Since the images come off the camera in a 2:3 ratio, so most images need a little cropping to make them fit on the photo paper. Here is an example of how it works:
|Original||4x6 Crop||5x7 Crop||8x10 Crop|
As you can see, the original image has a lot of extra space around the runner. Each crop removes the space, but keeps the proper aspect ratio to fit the image on the correct size of photo paper.
Even photos taken by a professional photographer and using professional equipment do not always come out looking exactly as they should. For example if the white balance is a little off, the image will look too warm or too cold. If the "reds" are a little dull, or if the image just doesn't have that "pop", colour correction (white balance and curves adjustments) can usually can fix that up without a problem! This technique can also be used to fixed images that are too dark or too light. Here are some examples:
|Original Image (Too Dark)||Light Corrected||Light & Colour Corrected|
The colour correction is often very hard to see, but once the image is printed and becomes a photo, the colour corrected photo really stands out.
Just like with colours and white balance, sometimes there are things you can't control in your image - like a busy background, other people, cars, etc. We can do many things to fine tune a photo. Here is an example of Fine Tuning (also shows cropping and colour and white balance correction). Please note that fine tuning is only available within reason. If the time required to tune your image is great, we will request further payment for our service.
