Scanning Photo Print – Pet Lamb

Scanned-Photo-Print-Pet-Lamb
Christine called in with this photo of a pet lamb her son had quite a few years ago. Christine had been to a local shop to get it scanned then enlarged and printed. While it didn’t cost very much at all, the shop cropped off most of the hat! The print was also fuzzy and had a blue tinge to it. Christine was not impressed.

Christine contacted me, showed me the offending reprint and hoped I could help – most definitely! I was able to scan it, enlarge it, make it purely black and white and make it look sharper.

Fixing and Enlarging Photo Print

Jo Walker came to see me about having this 70s photo scanned, enhanced and then enlarged. Her mother, seen bottom left holding the boy, has fading eyesight, and Jo wanted to know if I was able to make it bigger. I said no problem, the original photo was clear enough to enlarge.

Jo provided me with a new picture frame, allowing me to enlarge the photo to the correct dimensions. The photo was scanned, marks and redeye removed, colours enhanceed then printed to a 16 x 22 inch size, with excellent clarity. When Jo saw the final print mounted she was overjoyed with what she sure. I was going to make her mother very happy!
