DIGITAL EDITS 
WHAT ARE THEY & HOW DO THEY WORK?

Digital Edits are basically two (or more) images merged together to create a brand new photo.  
They are proving to be extremely popular, especially during the current Covid-19 pandemic when people can't get to their local Photography Studio to have family photos taken.  Newborn backgrounds are a particular favourite with customers at the moment.  So many parents are having babies and want to be able to capture some precious memories while their baby is still only tiny.  Due to Covid, and with no face to face contact allowed at present, these digital edits are a perfect alternative to a studio or location photo shoot.  

The concept of digital edits may seem complicated at first, but it's really quite simple.  


HERE'S WHAT TO DO....

STEP 1

Choose your background from the gallery below (if you want another genre please get in touch)

STEP 2 

Take a good, clear photo of your subject(s) in a pose to match the background you have chosen. Email your photo(s) over to me using the link below.  Please let me know in that email what background you have chosen.  We will then decide between us which photo is the best, and which one to use, before I start work.  

Please then follow the PayPal link below to send your payment. 

 Payment is up front. Once received you will be added to my list of orders.  

STEP 3 

I'll set to work and create the magic using my creativity and editing skills.  I will send you a watermarked proof of the photo by email to make sure you are entirely happy with it.  Providing you are, I will then email you the original (minus my watermark) for you to download and use as you wish.  You will have full printing rights so you can print the photo yourself or have it done elsewhere.   Finished photos are usually back with you within 1 to 2 days. However, at really busy times, this may be 3 to 4 days.


PLEASE NOTE : You must not alter the finished image in any way due to copyright rules. 

 If you want it altered for whatever reason, please come back to me.  


TIPS & GUIDANCE OF HOW TO GET A GOOD ORIGINAL PHOTO

  • If it's an indoor background you have chosen, take the photo indoors.  If it's an outside background you prefer, then take the photo outside. This will help to make the final image more authentic.
  • Take the photo in natural daylight.  Do not use any form of artificial light or flash.  Please don't add any filters as I will do that during the editing process, if necessary.  
  • Shoot at eye level - this means point the camera lens / phone at the same level as the subject's eyes with no slope between camera and subject.  If it's a family group of varying heights, don't worry too much but try and focus eye level on the shorter members of the group, or get some to kneel down so they're a similar height to the shorter ones.  
  • Make sure that all limbs are in shot.  Try not to cut off hands, feet, tops of heads etc.  Easiest way to do this is stand back a bit. Photos with 'bits missing' would ultimately end up having bits missing in the finished image, so this is really important! 
  • Try and use a plain background if you can, although if this is difficult don't worry too much as the background is being replaced by the new one - it's just easier for me to see the subject against a plain background initially.  
  • Finally, make sure there are no blankets or objects covering any of your subjects.
GOOD LUCK & HAVE FUN...!
