We are able to restore most photographs to their original condition…and sometimes even better! To do so requires a combination of an artistic touch and, of course, a good deal of experience. Our studio in Barrie, Ontario utilizes the latest techniques and industry-standard imaging software during the restoration process. Check out our sample pages!
A photo montage is a beautiful and creative way to display a number of photographs together in one place. Separately, these photos might only rarely be seen. A photo montage is a great idea for occasions such as memorials, retirements, anniversaries, graduations, birthdays, or Christmas. Check out our sample page!
Imagine seeing yourself standing beside the Eiffel Tower in Paris or…perhaps a romantic, tropical locale is more to your liking. We can change the background of your photo so that your image can appear somewhere else…in fact, anywhere else you can imagine! Our Barrie, ON studio can also remove unattractive, distracting background clutter to transform your photo into a beautiful portrait. The possibilities are endless! Check out our sample pages!
COMBINE TWO or more PHOTOS
Sometimes, it’s simply impossible to photograph two people together at the same time. In such cases, a little digital imaging “magic” is needed. We can combine photos of people with themselves at a younger age. Imagine yourself standing beside…“yourself” at age 5! Or, you can appear with your son or daughter at the same age. For something really different, we can “shrink” your child and put them together with their favourite toy. Or, you could appear with your favourite celebrity. Once again, the possibilities are endless! Check out our sample page!
REMOVE PEOPLE or THINGS
Removing a person from a photo is no problem, either. Sometimes, you may want a photo of one particular person, but can only find photos where that person is with one or more other people. We can remove the extra people to create a portrait of that person alone. Check out our sample page!
Images can be brightened, contrast increased, and colours made more vibrant. We can whiten teeth and remove red-eye, acne, and other unwanted blemishes from faces. Want to look 10 years younger? We remove (or reduce) wrinkles too! Check out our sample pages!
TRANSFER HOME MOVIES to DVD (and DIGITAL FILE)
Your precious home movies on video cassette are quickly deteriorating with age. Why not preserve those memories by transfering them to digital format? Our studio in Barrie, Ontario, Canada can convert your video cassettes, including VHS, VHSc (VHS-C), 8 mm tapes, Video8, Hi8, and MiniDV, to DVD (and create digital files to save to your hard drive or other storage media). Imagine how great it would be to view your precious home movies with Hollywood-style transitions between scenes (fades, etc.), added music (when needed), as well as a professional-looking DVD menu and scene selector! Let us create a unique and completely customized DVD for you! You'll even get to choose your own music!
Unlike our competitors, we take the time to make the finished project look and sound exactly the way you want it. Everything will be custom-made to suit your specific needs, taste, and budget. The finished DVD comes packaged in a professional-looking plastic case with a customized colour wrap and personalized photo (taken from the video footage).
All video transfer work is done onsite. Your video cassettes will never leave our Barrie, Ontario studio, so there is no need to worry about anything getting lost!
Please note: At the present time, we are no longer offering a transfer service for 8 mm film reels.
REPAIR SERVICE for VHS and VHS-c VIDEO TAPES
Oh no! Your VCR has just eaten your precious VHS tape! Don't despair...we are able to repair most VHS and VHS-c tape issues, including bent, crinkled, cut, broken, and stretched tapes. We can even "rescue" your video cassette when the outer plastic case is cracked and parts of it are missing! Don't throw away that video tape without checking with us first! After the repair is done, we will convert your VHS (or VHSc) cassette to digital format and create a new DVD (and digital back-up file) for you!
DVD PHOTO SLIDESHOW with MUSIC
Watch your photographs appear on TV from the comfort of your couch! What a great way to view those photos that are hidden away in albums! We put your pictures to music and create a video slideshow that you and your family will want to watch over and over again. Your custom DVD package includes a professional-looking menu and scene selector, transitions between photos, as well as your choice of music.
SCANNING of PHOTOS, SLIDES, and NEGATIVES
We are able to scan your photos, slides, and negatives so that they can be restored, printed, or viewed on a computer or TV screen. High-resolution scans provide the clarity needed to make enlargements, if desired.
TRANSFER RECORDS, AUDIO CASSETTES, and 8-TRACK TAPES to CD (and MP3)
Enjoy the convenience of being able to listen to your favourite old-time recordings on your iPod or CD player!. We can transfer your favourite songs from vinyl records (33's, 45's and 78's), audio cassettes, and even 8-track tapes, to CD or MP3 format.
