One of the steps to getting a photo, a painting, an old piece of artwork, a framed piece, etc. to be on canvas is to take a digital capture so it can be worked with on a computer. We do this all the time in order to print people’s photos on canvas. We have a photo studio set up with pro lights, etc. to be able to capture high resolution images. We also do it with old photos that are fragile as the first step to being able to restore them with and print reproductions.
Artists and painters have many uses for making reproductions of their artwork. Unless they are digital artists, then taking digital captures of their work is the first step. And quality in = quality out. Or, garbage in = garbage out.
Another example, we have worked with amateur artists who were breaking into selling their art but didn’t want to give up the originals. A digital capture lets the artist to print high quality reproductions (like the fine art giclees we offer) without giving up their original. We work with both scanners and digital cameras so we can handle pieces of any size without fear of damaging them.
Most modern have long since switched to digital cameras, but long-time photographers often have old slides and negatives that they wish they had access to again. Our digital capture services include scanning slides and negatives. We also offer full restoration and retouching in-house as well as giclee printing on canvas or paper.
Family archivists who want to use their photographic heritage don’t need to worry about damaging the originals. We can process dozens of photos of any size. Then you can have them on a CD, printing on paper for cutting out and gluing, or even turned into collages on canvas.
If you have any questions about the digital capture process, please call us at 727-797-1199. We’ll be happy to help you however we can.
