Photo Re-touching and restoration

By | Design | No Comments

No need to bubble wrap or ship one of a kind photos to unknown places. Restore your photos digitally and eliminate all the risk of losing your precious photos, or damaging them even more.

Digital Photo restoration at just about any level can be done with Photoshop and a little talent and training. Simple color balance, bad lighting, or red eye can be fixed quickly by almost anybody with the right software. But what about those wrinkled, ripped or even torn photos? Water damage, mold, or scratches? Restoring those photos are possible as well. With a little time, elbow grease and Photoshop, Beezink can restore those damaged family photos back to their original glory, or even better! Remove the ex-girlfriend, add a missing family member, or even change the background.


Beezink also provides photo enhancing and re-touching. Let’s face it. Nothing makes it to print without being touched up. But if you have it done correctly, it will go unnoticed. Women have pores. Some airbrushing is done, blemishes are removed, but nothing over the top. Again, it should look natural.

On his photograph, I made minor color corrections, adjusted the levels, softened the skin and wrinkles, removed blemishes, and added subtle highlights to the eyes and hair, and added a little color to the lips.

The next photo was touched up the same way. Basic color correction, levels, and skin softening. Nothing major, and still very natural looking.

This image had drastic changes. After the basic color corrections and level adjustments, I added some color to her hair, and softened her wrinkles significantly, and smoothed out the skin.

On the last photo I focused on building muscle tone. I started by giving him a tan, and bulking him up very slightly with the liquefy tool on the neck and shoulders. Then I airbrushed some muscle definition with highlights and shadows and overlaid it onto his body. Each element should look completely natural, and unnoticeable without seeing the before photo.

You love your pet.  I get it.  I love mine too.   Capture your pet buddy’s personality on canvas, with a hand painted portrait by Shane Burke.  When you commission a portrait of your special companion for yourself or as a gift, you will receive a high quality hand painted portrait shipped directly to your door.  Commissioning a well known artist can be very expensive and the time spent waiting for your work can seem like a life time.  Shane offers great accuracy and attention to detail in each piece, with fast turnarounds, and affordable rates.

Charlie is my three year old Malamute.  I recently rescued little Jackie; a lab pointer mix, and the two together are quite the pair.  Little Jackie rarely gives Charlie a break from wrestling and chewing on him, but I was lucky enough get a quick snapshot off with both of them looking up at me.  They grow so fast, and I wanted to make sure I had lots of photos of it, at ended up creating this great piece that now hangs in my living room.
