The use of photo editing software to enhance your digital photos is a great way to better preserve those special memories. Even just a few minor adjustments using photo editing software can greatly enhance your digital photos. Professional photographers have used photo editing software for years in order to better enhance their photos. Now, technology allows even the novice photographer to create a professional looking photo album with affordable photo editing software

If you are looking to turn your memories into outstanding photos then some simple photo editing tips can go a long way. Here are 5 incredibly simple photo editing techniques that you can use with almost any photo editing software program to better enhance your digital photos.

1. Remove Red Eye: A standard feature for most photo editing software programs is red eye removal. This is something that you should do for every photo. Red-eye happens when the flash of the camera reflects off of the blood vessels in the pupil. Removing red eye using photo editing software is an absolute must and, as you will see, makes a huge difference.

2. Sharpen: Sharpening a photo will do exactly like it sounds. It will make the edges of your photo more sharp and remove grain which will leave you with a more crisp image. Experiment to see how much sharpening your photo may need. You can sharpen an image multiple times if necessary.

3. Hue and Saturation: This is a feature offered with most photo editing software programs that allows you to control the color content of your digital photo. Saturation is what controls the strength of the color and Hue serves to balance out the color in your photo.

4. Brightness and Contrast: The most common mistake that most novice photographers make has to do with lighting. The photo can easily end up either too light or too dark. If this is the case with your photo then load your photo into a photo editing software program and adjust the brightness and contrast until your photo looks the way you would like it to.

5. Noise: This is a cool feature that is offered with most photo editing software programs. It allows you to add a thin film of grain over your digital photo, which can create an old, classical look. Experiment with it and see what you think.

Scanning Film Negatives vs Scanning Prints

One of the questions that I am quite often asked is the following:


Which is better to scan, film negatives or prints?

It is always best to scan the original negatives, provided that they are in good shape and the colors have not faded. The reasons for this are explained below.


To begin with, you have to realize that a photograph is merely a copy of the original, processed negative. In most cases, a copy is never as good as the original. Typically, photographs are printed out at 240-300 dpi when done at your local photo lab. That means that a 4×6 print is, at most, 1200×1800 dpi. This is why prints are typically scanned at 300 dpi as scanning at a higher resolution does not bring out any further detail other than what is on the original print. The only time that scanning a photograph at 600 dpi, or greater, would be if the original was either very small or if it is going to be edited at a later date.


The size of a typical 35mm negative is 24mm x 36mm or, roughly, 1.0in x 1.5in. This means that the film was essentially scanned at 1200 dpi in order to produce the 4×6 print in the above example.


Most 35mm film negatives are capable of being scanned at up to 4000 dpi. This is especially true for the slower speed films (100, 200). When scanning negatives the general rule of thumb is the higher the resolution, the greater the detail.


For example, a negative scanned at a lower resolution of 2000 dpi may not be able to clearly display the time on a clock in the background or the fine print on a paper or sign when the photograph is blown up. By simply rescanning the same image at 4000 dpi you are providing 4x the resolution of the original scan. This type of resolution can display these details much more easily and clearly, especially when a larger print is be made.


Another reason for choosing to scan the film negatives instead of the photographic print is that the original film contains much more contrast and detail as compared to a photographic print. This is because prints tend to fade over time due to exposure to sunlight, etc. Negatives, if they have been stored in a dry place, are much more immune to this behavior.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments.

Converting Slides to Digital New York Quality Media

Post-War Germany
convert slide

Image by ChicagoGeek
My great-great aunt Emily was a nurse during World War II. Her daughter finally converted her old slides into digital photos. I have to share some because they are too cool. From the look of things, these were probably taken right after the war ended…probably late 1940′s.

It used to be the standard way to have one’s portfolio was to have pictures of every piece in slide form. One would then send those slides to art schools, jobs or what have you. Slides unfortunately have many drawbacks. For one thing, a person must have a projector in order to watch these slides. They are also bulky and take up a lot of space. Not only that, they are difficult to store and ship. Through modern day technology though, a person can convert their slides to digital New York quality media. It is much easier to store, share and even manipulate a digital copy.

Slides have many problems when it comes to storage. Converting your slides to digital New York quality media however can help a person greatly when it comes to storage. Slides are very sensitive to temperature and also moisture. If you do not have a safe place like that for your slides, then they will eventually be ruined and all of the hard work put into them lost. A digital copy however is not prone to the elements, and can be easily backed up in many different ways. Another reason to convert your slides to digital New York quality media is in case of some kind of accident or catastrophe. No one expects a flood or a fire to happen to him or her. Slides in this case would be ruined. A digital copy that has been uploaded or doubled to somewhere else however remains just fine.

When you convert your slides to digital New York quality media you are also making your slides much easier to see. Once your slides are a digital copy you can do so many things with them. For one thing you can make prints just about anywhere. What is even greater than that though is putting the images online. Once your slides are digital, you can host your images on any number of web sites and share your images with everyone in the world. Also when you convert your slides to digital New York quality media, you can make your own web site to feature your images. Having an online portfolio is a great way to gain future positions.

Maybe the best thing about converting slides to digital New York quality media is that a digital copy of something is so much easier to work with than an image that is stuck in physical form. One can do some pretty impressive things with negatives and printing, but nothing compared with what Photoshop can do. Programs like Photoshop even have features that can emulate anything a person could do with film and printing alone. Also when one converts Slides to Digital New York quality media, he or she then has more artistic options available. A person that had a painting in slide form can convert it to an amazing Flash animation.

Digital cameras have become part of our lives today. With user friendly capabilities, taking memorable moments are a breeze. However, bad luck can occur and photos can get lost, corrupted or damaged easily. Some of the reasons why this happens can be attributed to switching off the camera while read/write process is still on, memory card gets corrupted, card is pulled out when the camera is still on, etc.

Then there is the other common reason which is the accidental deletion of your photos. If you have backed up your photos, then there is no issue but if not, then this can be very frustrating. What’s important though is taking action to recover your photos back. In the past, this is a big problem but not today anymore. Modern technology has made it a very simple process to recover back your “lost” photos by using photo recovery software.

The beauty of the software is its developed to safely recover all your deleted photos from memory cards such as SD, MMC, XD, MMC micro and others as well as recovers from all photo formats including JPEG, GIF, JPG, PNG, BMP, etc. The user interface is also simple and mostly intuitive to use plus it allows scanning and has option to save the result for later recovery.

To recover your photos, insert the memory card into your PC card reader slot and let the system recognise the device. Next select the photo recovery software and choose the right application/media. The reason being you may be recovering the photos from your cell phone, memory cards or the digital camera itself. In any case, it’s very just follow the instructions and you should have back your photos in no time at all.

One example of good photo recovery software is the Remo Restore (Windows) photo. It is very easy to use and has most of the features mentioned above.

And if using photo recovery software doesn’t help you, then there is always the service centre you can turn to for help.

Early history

Around 1910, 78 rpm records replaced phonograph cylinder as the medium for recorded sound. The 78 rpm records were issued in both 10″ and 12″ diameter sizes and were usually sold separately, in brown paper or cardboard sleeves that were sometimes plain and sometimes printed to show the producer or the retailer’s name. Generally the sleeves had a circular cutout allowing the record label to be seen. Records could be laid on a shelf horizontally or stood upright on an edge, but because of their fragility, many broke in storage.

German record company Odeon pioneered the “album” in 1909 when it released the “Nutcracker Suite” by Tchaikovsky on 4 double-sided discs in a specially-designed package. (It is not indicated what the specially designed package was.) The practice of issuing albums does not seem to have been taken up by other record companies for many years.

Beginning in the 1920s, bound collections of empty sleeves with a plain paperboard or leather cover, similar to a photograph album, were sold as “record albums” that customers could use to store their records (the name “record album” was printed on some covers). These empty albums were sold in both 10″ and 12″ sizes. The covers of these bound books were wider and taller than the records inside, allowing the record album to be placed on a shelf upright, like a book, suspending the fragile records above the shelf and protecting them.

Starting in the 1930s, record companies began issuing collections of 78 rpm records by one performer or of one type of music in specially assembled albums. These albums could include either a collection of popular songs, on several 78 rpm records, related either by performer or style, or extended length classical music, also on several 78 rpm records, including complete symphonies.

In 1938, Columbia records hired Alex Steinweiss as its first art director. He is credited with inventing the concept of album covers and cover art, replacing plain covers used before. After his initial efforts at Columbia, other record companies followed his lead. By the late 1940s, record albums for all the major companies featured their own colorful paper covers in both 10-inch and 12-inch sizes. Some featured reproductions of classic art while others utilized original designs.

When the 10″ and 12″ LPs came along, starting in 1948, and box sets of 45 rpm records soon followed (see Gramophone record), the name “album” came along for the new format of collections and the creation of artistic original album covers continued as well.

Formats

From the 1950s through to the 1980s, the 12″ LP record and the 45 rpm record were the major formats for distribution of popular music, and the LP format is still used for occasional new releases, though it has largely been supplanted by other formats. The size of the typical cardboard LP sleeve cover is 12.375 inches square.

Since the mid 1990′s,the CD has become the most common form of physically distributed music products. Packaging formats vary, including the very common plastic jewel case, and the popular cardboard & plastic combination commonly known as a Digipak. Typically the album cover component of these packages is approximately 4.75 inches square.

Design

Patti Smith’s portrait by Robert Mapplethorpe on the cover of her album Horses has become one of rock’s classic images.

The cover became an important part of the culture of music at the time. As a marketing tool and an expression of artistic intent, gatefold covers, (a folded double cover), and inserts, often with lyric sheets, made the album cover a desirable artifact in its own right. Notable examples are The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band which had cut-out inserts, lyrics, a gatefold sleeve though a single album; The Rolling Stones Exile on Main Street which had a gatefold and a series of 12 perforated postcards as inserts; a and Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon which had a gatefold, lyrics, no title on the sleeve and poster inserts. The move to the small (less than 1/4 the size of a record) CD format lost that impact, though attempts have been made to create a more desirable packaging for the CD format, for example the re-issue of Sgt. Pepper, which had a cardboard box and booklet, or the use of oversized packaging.

The importance of cover design was such that some artists specialised or gained fame through their work, notably the design team Hipgnosis (through their work on Pink Floyd albums amongst others) and Roger Dean famous for his Yes and Greenslade covers, Cal Schenkel for Captain Beefheart’s Trout Mask Replica and Frank Zappa’s We’re Only in It For the Money.

The talents of many photographers and illustrators from both inside and outside of the music industry have been used to produce a vast array of memorable LP/CD covers. In addition to the examples mentioned previously, a number of world-renowned graphic artists and illustrators such as Ed Repka, Andy Warhol (The Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones), Mati Klarwein (Santana, Miles Davis), H.R. Giger (Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, Debbie Harry), Frank Frazetta (Molly Hatchet), Derek Riggs (Iron Maiden), Jamie Reid (The Sex Pistols), Howard Finster (R.E.M., Talking Heads), Al Hirschfeld (Aerosmith), Gottfried Helnwein (Marilyn Manson), Rex Ray (David Bowie), Robert Crumb (Big Brother & The Holding Co.), John Van Hamersveld (Rolling Stones), and Shepard Fairey (Johnny Cash) have all applied their talents to memorable music packages.

A number of record covers have also used images licensed (or borrowed from the public domain) from artists of bygone eras. Well-known examples of this include the cover of Derek and the Dominoes Layla (from the painting “La Fille au Bouquet” by French painter and sculptor Emile Thodore Frandsen de Schomberg), the cover of Kansas’s debut album, adapted from a mural by painter John Steuart Curry and, more recently, Coldplay’s Viva La Vida, which features Eugne Delacroix’s painting Liberty Leading the People (a favorite in The Louvre) with the words “VIVA LA VIDA” brushed on top in white paint.

Legends from photography and video/film who have also produced record cover images include Annie Leibovitz (John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith), Richard Avedon (Whitney Houston, Teddy Pendergrass), Norman Seeff (The Band, The Rolling Stones, Kiss, Aerosmith), David LaChappelle (No Doubt, Elton John), Anton Corbijn (U2, The Killers, Depeche Mode), Karl Ferris (Jimi Hendrix, Donovan, The Hollies), Robert Mapplethorpe (Patti Smith) and Francesco Scavullo (Diana Ross, Edgar Winter), among others.

As one would expect, a number of artists and bands feature members who are, in their own right, accomplished illustrators, designers and photographers and whose talents are exhibited in the artwork they produced for their own recordings. Examples include Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin IV), Chris Mars (Replacements Pleased to Meet Me and others), Marilyn Manson (Lest We Forget), Michael Stipe (REM’s Accelerator), Thom Yorke (credited as “Tchocky” on misc. Radiohead records), Michael Brecker (Ringorama), Freddie Mercury (Queen I), John Entwistle (Who By Numbers), Mike Shinoda (various Linkin Park albums), and M.I.A. (credited variously on Elastica’s The Menace, her records).

Collectors of music-related illustration, design, and photography worldwide have been able to build their personal collections of album cover-related fine art through the efforts of galleries and publishers that specialize in these works, such as St. Paul’s Gallery (UK), Walnut Street Gallery (US), and RockPoP Gallery (US).

Packaging

Left: inner sleeve printed blank, purely for design; right: back cover, note artwork showing band members, track listing below, at the bottom record label (Chrysalis) logo. The cover is within a clear PVC sleeve – note that LP can be removed without removing sleeve.

The album cover is a component of the over all packaging of an album. Especially in the case of vinyl records with cardboard sleeves, these packages are prone to wear and tear, although wear and tear does often take place to some degree on covers contained within plastic cases. A variety of treatments could be applied to improve both their appearance and durability, such as clear plastic wrap. Many products have been available for the storage of vinyl albums, often clear plastic sleeves.

The surface of a vinyl record is readily damaged, so aside from the outer cardboard sleeve, there is usually an inner protective cover to protect against dust and handling. This is normally shaped to allow it to readily slide within the outer cover. The inner sleeve is either thin white paper, either plain or printed with information on other recordings available from the same company, or a paper sleeve supporting a thin plastic bag. These quite often have a circular cut out so that the record label can be read without directly handling the record, though when the inner sleeve is printed with lyrics, which became quite common, then there is usually no hole. Decca Records used a system of colour-coding on these sleeves where a blue color denoted a stereophonic recording while red denoted a monophonic recording (the mono record players of the time were not always compatible with stereo records). This system was begun in the 1960s to reduce packaging costs.

For more on packaging formats specific to CDs, see the separate article.

Besides the practicalities of identifying specific records, album covers serve the purpose of advertising the musical contents on the LP, through the use of graphic design, photography, and/or illustration. An album cover normally has the artist’s name, sometimes in logo form; and the album title. Occasionally, though more common on historical vinyl records, the cover may include a reference number; a branding (the label), and possibly a track listing. Other information is seldom included on the cover, and is usually contained on the rear or interior of the packaging, such as a track listing together with a more detailed list of those involved in making the record, band members, guest performers, engineers and producer. On the spine of the package, the artist, title, and reference number are usually repeated so that albums can be identified while tightly packed on a shelf.

As coined by Darrell Hammond (impersonating Sean Connery) on the Dec. 16, 2000 episode of Celebrity Jeopardy! (Saturday Night Live), it is a common internet meme to misread “An Album Cover” as “Anal Bum Cover”

The album cover in the age of downloads

With the increasing popularity of digital music downloading service and the inflating cost of conducting business, the purpose and prevalence of the album cover is evolving. While the music industry tries to keep up with technological and cultural shifts, the role that packaging (and thus the “album cover”) will play in consumer music sales in the near future is uncertain, although its role is certainly changing, and digital forms of packaging will continue to surface, which, to some degree (and to some consumers) take the place of physical packaging. However, As of 2008[update] should be noted that physical music products, with a physical “album cover”, continue to outsell digital downloads by a substantial margin.

In August 2008, album cover designer Peter Saville, responsible for cover art on albums by New Order and Roxy Music, suggested that the album cover was dead.

One digital solution is the iTunes LP format for interactive album artwork introduced by Apple on the 9 September 2009.

Color Correction- A Useful Way to Get Old Photos to Colored

Even though time passes by, it leaves immortal memories captured in sepia toned photos. Almost everyone has a sepia-toned memory that needs resurrection. How one wishes, to revive the same color tones that captured the great moment in the Kodak frame. With digital technology that has reached the magic world of photography one can say ‘cheese’ once again happily. Color correction is now possible to revive old fading photos. In fact it is one of the most useful ways to get old photos colored. Here’s how the magic redevelops the tonal quality of the print- And that too without cutting on the actual fabric of the snap.

There are several techniques that are at play when color correction is done. Some employ delicate handling as a few old photos may even have some historical value. Despite careful storage facilities some pictures fade or lose their tonal quality and they require color correction an essential restoration process. With the availability of high resolution scanners some old photos can be scanned and digitalized. However, some may require professional help to maintain the quality. Digital photo editors who have online photoshops are the best to handle this delicate project of color correction with care.  With the help of Graphic Design Company, those are professionals in their jobs the restoration becomes easier. They are able to handle the wear and tear of the old photos.

When is professional expertise required for color correction?

Before the advent of digital photo storage, the only way photos could be stored was via albums. But some photos develop wrinkles, or start to fold from the corners. Visible cracks often mar the visibility of the entire picture. This is when professionals are needed to bring back the original (rather closest to the original quality) without damage to the important substance. Sometimes the photos crumble or tear into pieces too. Usually color correction is required when certain photos have been exposed to sunlight. Examples of these are photos of elders framed and kept on the walls without protective glass paneling. Exposure to natural elements tends to evaporate the original hues of the picture. Often moisture or droplets of water also appear on such photos and they need color correction. And now it is also possible to make the photo more interesting by adding a missing person to the frame or removing unnecessary background. Even such tweaking helps in reviving the fortunes of the old snaps.

Which is the best company for color correction?

Browse online and there are several options to get the right restoration company. A professional company is likely to assess the photo or group of photos before they take up the job. Usually they do not even charge upfront but wait for the client to approve the tonal quality of the restoration work. The images can be uploaded via an ftp site no matter how heavy the files are. Quotes are given also before commencement of the job. The photos remain safe till the job is completed and handed back to the client. They are not used for any commercial purposes either.

Article by Russell Roberds

Do you want to snap some unbelievable photos? How about if I reveal some digital photography lessons? Let’s talk about composition! Looking at composition, or how the picture is constructed, when taking a photograph is one item that could make your photos pop. So, how can you construct a better picture?

Composition deals with how your picture is framed, the angle, location of objects in the frame, light, color, texture, depth of field and motion. These are just a few of the extensive list of items that make up composition. If you use a few of these digital photography lessons, your photos should advance greatly.

I will show you some of my favorite tricks. These digital photography lessons have been the most dynamic at improving my skills.

Changing the Angle – If you are like I once was, you peer into the view finder in the camera, the horizon is flat and “click” you take the picture. I have to divulge how drab my photos were. To add more character to the photograph, rotate the camera a little.

Leading Lines – You can improve your photos by leading the viewer into the photograph. A very easy way is with leading lines. Leading lines are as simple as a road, dock or shoreline. You could use the edge of a building, a fence or anything else that will grab the viewer’s eye and pulls them in.

Reflection – The other day I was reflecting on past experiences… Oh, I know that you wouldn’t like to hear me rant on about that, but why don’t you think about this: One of the extremely useful digital photography lessons to add dimension is to use a reflective surface. Snap a picture using a reflection in water, a mirror, a window or anything metallic and shiny. The most photographed object is called “The Bean” in Chicago.

Fill Flash – Flashing people in the daytime will help your pictures. Wait a minute that didn’t come out right. What I mean is one way to get rid of shadows during the day is to use your flash. This works very well on people’s faces.

Incorporating these digital photography lessons when taking pictures can help tremendously. All of these have helped me produce some incredible photographs and with practice, I am sure they can enhance your pictures as well.

Photo Scan NYC Brings New Life to the Media Industry

Whether you work in the Media Buying Industry, are an advertiser, publisher, or direct consumer you have most likely been affected by Photo Scan NYC.
