Quality Large Prints From Your Digital Photos
We make enlargements of our photographs for our clients. We apply the same techniques to produce quality enlargements of your digital images.
Our hands-on approach to digital photo processing produces consistently better enlargements than is common with high volume digital photo printers.
You might be surprised with what we can do with digital images from your camera or scanner.
Digital photo enlargements up to 30x40

If you are shopping for quality, look no further.
We inspect each image, perform basic photo edits (saturation, contrast, sharpening, noise removal, etc.) and interpolate (upsize) the image file as needed prior to sending the file to print. Our process results in consistently better photographs than is common among high volume labs.
Interpolation is a resampling of the image file that improves the quality of large prints. Please click here to find out more about interpolation.

Our Advantage Over Your Local Lab
We'll interpolate your image
Photo interpolation is the process by which the number of pixels comprising an image is increased to allow printing enlargements that are of higher quality than photos that are not interpolated. Interpolation is commonly needed to make quality large prints from digital photos and film-scanned images.

More information about interpolation including criteria for deciding if it's needed can be found here.
A review of the different digital image interpolation (resizing / resampling) methods can be found by following this link.
We perform image adjustments and enhancements as needed (or requested)
In addition to common image adjustments such as brightness, contrast and saturation, we perform noise (grain) removal and image sharpening. The end result is an enlargement of better quality than is common with the high volume labs. Each image is processed individually and given our full attention.

Image used with permission from customers Dawn & Mark Donohue
(pictured on their honeymoon)
The customer's image file was electronically enlarged using state of the art imaging software.
Noise reduction tools were used to remove digital artifacts which are present in most digital photos.
The color was adjusted to remove an unnatural yellow cast and modified to match the lab printer.
Photo layering, selective erasing and brightness/contrast adjustments were performed to lighten the subjects without washing out the background.
Editing tools were used to remove an unnatural border around the subjects (probably as a result of in-camera sharpening).
Editing tools were used to smooth unnatural color splotches on their skin
The image was cropped to a ratio matching the desired print size. Cropping also moved attention more to the subjects while retaining interesting elements (island, boat, coastline).
The image was sharpened.
Was the customer happy? See DD's comment - sidebar above.
While many of our customer's images don't require as much work, we'll do what we can to ensure the best possible print.
As an aside, there comes a point where the editing would take too much time to do without charging for Photoshop editing time. If this is the case, you will be notified and given the option of printing without edits, performing the edits or somewhere in between. Most customer files require only basic adjustments/editing and it's included in the price.
Why shouldn't I just do it myself?
Interpolation tools such as Genuine Fractals and S-Spline Pro (commonly regarded as the two best) are relatively expensive ($160 and up). Genuine Fractals is a plug-in requiring additional photo editing software to run. Unless you produce large prints on a regular basis, the expense can be hard to justify. We perform interpolation on image files as appropriate using the method you prefer. Using our service also allows users a chance to see the results of interpolation on their own images before spending a lot of money.
Image editing is performed on a monitor that is color calibrated with the print service. What we see is what you'll get.
We are proficient in making the adjustments needed to achieve the best results (including noise reduction and sharpening). Photo editing software can have a steep learning curve and we've been working with the tools for a couple of years.
We save you time. If you're familiar with photo editing, you know it can take a lot of time to prepare an image for print (especially large prints). We spend the time necessary to make quality enlargements. If the image is not suitable for the size ordered, we'll let you know and refund your payment or work with you to pick a different size.
Now is the time to take advantage of this service while we're offering the introductory pricing.
