1. Image straightening (it's crooked so I make it straight)
2. Image sharpening (slightly blurry so I sharpen it a little)
3. Color correction (this one is kinda tricky but I will try to make it as you want it to be)
4. Contrast correction
5. Black and white conversion
6. Cropping (if you have things that are not the art showing in the picture)
7. Photo merging (if you take pictures of an image, in pieces, I can put them together to make one larger image)
(This alone may be the best reason to do this. If you take a four part picture of your painting and I piece them together, you will have one large image to offer for prints, without compromising the image quality.)
What I cannot do:
1. Make it bigger
2. Make art for you, I am not going to create new art...only tweak your images
3. Make really blurry shots into clear ones...the pics have to decently sharp for me to work with.
4. $5 is not for doing overhaul work on images...this is basic cleanup. If you need more, I can do it but it costs more.
I don't charge more than $10 for extensive work on an image.
You will be able to view it, on FAA, I will upload it to my account so you can see it. You decide if you want it, if you do...you pay by Paypal. Then when I receive payment...I send you the files. Once you receive them...I delete them. I am not going to keep work past a two week time frame. (time enough for you to decide if you want to buy it) My idea, is to do this to help the painters at FAA who are struggling to create good clean images of their work. I will do my best to make the images look as you want it to...if you don't like how it turns out...you don't pay anything. I originally was only going to offer this to painters, but I realize there may be some people who draw, use mixed media or chalk, who may also benefit from this.
Paypal is the only payment option.
If you are interested...you can email the image to me...tell me what exactly it is that you want done to it. I will do my best to let you know within 24 hours whether or not what you would like done is feasible. I will try to have the image done within 3 days or faster. You can send it to me through FAA.
For those who do not know me. I am an honest person. The only reason I am doing this is to help people, but this is time consuming stuff we are talking about, so that's why I am placing this nominal fee on it...my time.
FYI I prefer to discuss work in private through emails, I don't want to embarrass anyone and what I have to say about the photography of the work may not be good but I will discuss it here if you prefer.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
I'm no longer offering discounts for bulk work. It's a lot to do and $5 per image isn't much. I've evolved into offering 3-5 versions at one time, so you can decide what you like best, usually including a BW as well. You get them all for the $5 fee.
Uh huh, I don't believe you for a second...;) You get pretty fancy with your editing.
There have been some members that have been slowly going through their entire portfolios.
Which I am happy to do, but when I am giving a bulk rate, it's almost like doing it free when I spend an hour on an image.
That's why I decided it was time for that to stop.
I Can thoroughly recommend Angelina, i have been really happy with the images of mine she had edited...and she has spent a number of hours adjusting a few that have been a real pain...thanks Angel. Great work, Great prices!
Hi Angelina........for that 'fiver', would you be willing to examine a few (10) maybe of our fav's that we think will print,but aren't sure, and say 'yes' or no......??
And then, any further work needed would be a new 'fiver', of course.
Hi Vivian. I would look for free...lol. You know I am not the person who determines it but I do have a feeling for what is printable and what isnt. Shoot me an email with the images you want me to look at and I will let you know what I think.
Thanks for the offer but my advice is free. I think consulting is part of the process.
Well, that's amazing of you.....many of we painters are so troubled by that note from admin to re-shoot within 24hrs, that many a sale is missed. It would help so much, and you're a pal to be willing. Thanks and "i'll be in touch".....
I definitely understand the grief of it. That's why I started editing for FAA members, but I don't do it anywhere else.
It's not a goal of mine to be a full time editor...but I'm trying to help out. You're welcome...just send an email with link and I will take a look.
LOL....thank you Kay...I feel like you are my personal cheer leading squad. I have enjoyed getting to know you.
