How it works

  1. Text or email a photo of your project and let's discuss what's possible, rates and timing.

  2. Send me the original image and I'll create a high-resolution scan. Alternately, you can scan the image and upload a high-quality file to my drop box (I'll give you a secure link). FedEx office does a good job of scanning if you don't want to send the photo through mail - have them do it at 1200 dpi.

  3. I'll restore the image and send you a draft version to review. You approve the edit, I finalize it.

  4. I provide final layered Photoshop or TIFF files of the retouched image as well as versions that are conveniently sized for social media and email. All files are uploaded to a secure link for you to easily download.

  5. If you want a high-quality print, I can print it using archival paper and inks.

  6. I send back your original images and your new prints.
