Difference-Photo-Editing-Freckle-Removal

Located in Vancouver, BC, Canada, we offer services in photo editing, photo retouching and rendering, modification, and photo restoration for individuals, transportation companies, construction companies and other industry sectors.  Photo editing is also known as “photoshopping” or “photoshop” a photo.

 

About Retouching and Editing

Photo Editing and Modification / Touch Up

sunglasses-reflection

We do photo editing in background removal, unwanted element and objects removal,  photo touchup, subject isolation, item and prop replacements, color and lighting adjustments. Red eyes, wrinkles, pimples, eye reflection removals, and glares from eye glasses can also be touched up, adjusted and removed. Old photos can be restored by removing cracks and restoring the color. A green screen can also be used to take portrait or head shot photos, and clients can customize their own background or background color. We also do contrast, color and exposure adjustment to existing photos.

An example of photo editing we can do is the removal of a ski line or unknown people in the background of a portrait photo.  Certain elements of a photo can be removed by means of photo editing and modification.  Other examples includes the reduction or elimination of dark circles or eye bags on a person’s face.  In addition, wrinkles on a person face can be reduced or unwanted elements such as moles or pimples on the face can be removed by photo editing means.  

Other photo editing examples include removal of elements, pieces or logos from an existing photo or replacing a background or blending in another person into another photo.

In addition, we can assist transportation industries in doing before and after photo renderings.  For example, how a road or landscape looks like before an infrastructure change and how the environment looks like after the change as simulated.

We also do graphic design for flyers, newsletters, restaurant menus, cards, etc.

Our photo modification and retouching is ideal for situations where one would want to extract a person from a group photo, and put the person against a pure solid color background as a formal single person portrait.

Reflection Control

There are times we are asked to photograph products that are highly reflective in nature.  Our product photo shots of these types of objects would involve photo editing to remove or drastically reduce the reflection of the surroundings and camera equipment on the object in question.  The photo editing would be manually crafted such that it should blend realistically just as if the reflection does not exist at all or how it looks like at a different eye level.

Photo Rendering and Simulation

 

Photo Rendering and Simulation

We assist transportation and other landscaping and architectural industries in doing before and after photo renderings.  For example, how a road or landscape looks like before an infrastructure change and how the environment looks like after the change as simulated.  This is also known as service in photo simulation rendering.  Other examples may also include showing the public how an expanded road look like with additional bicycle lanes and shoulders, etc (specific example pending).

Before and After Photo Simulation Rendering
This example shows that currently the right out divertor and right turn signs exists. Now, traffic management wants them removed to improve traffic flow. The photo is retouched, modifed and simulated to have the diverter and signs removed in a realistic manner.

Bear in mind this is different than 3D Design and Rendering.  For simulated 3D animation and rendering, please visit this page.

We can turn an un-landscaped home front into a landscaped front too through photo rendering.

No need to worry about cloudy weather ruining the photo shoot.  We can change the gloomy grey skies into nice blue skies using photo rendering techniques.
