A Composite combines or extracts elements from several sources to create a new image. For example, Uncle Oscar can be added to a photo of a family gathering he didn’t attend. Mom and Dad can be placed in front of the family castle. A wide-eyed Jim can replace a blinking Jim on the reunion photo.
This example substitutes one photo of a person for another. The man on the left is smoking in the group photo; his lapel and his right hand are badly placed, and his right side is cropped off. His second photo is much better.
A Photo Collage of several images can show important events in a life or a family history, a great memento for a birthday or reunion. Beautiful memorial collages can be shared with family and friends. Collages can be a collection of individual pictures or blended together in an artistic composition.
This example celebrates a memorable birthday, focusing on the guest of honor and surrounded by images from his life. Many of the old photos were restored, retouched, and colorized.
Photo Colorizing enhances a black-&-white picture with an overall color tone or spot coloring for a unique hand-tinted or antique look. Note that there is no attempt to create a modern color photo; color is used to enhance the atmosphere of the image.
This example is a black-&-white photo with natural tinting of the subject and background.

Have a photo reproduced as a large-format Poster. Liven up a birthday party with posters of the guest-of-honor in younger days. Decorate a child’s room with posters of friends or pets.
Our standard poster size is 11 x 17 inches. The large poster is 13 x 19 inches. Custom size orders can be requested (up to 35 inches wide). Please note that photos can only be enlarged so much without loss of quality in the image. The size and sharpness of the original are the determining factors. We’d be happy to suggest a size based on your original.
