EDITING PHOTOS FOR ONLINE USE

I can edit digital photos and images for use on websites, in PowerPoint or other slideshow-creating programs, or on social media profiles - each of which has different requirements.   I can edit your image to fit the various requirements.

SOME COMMON IMAGE SIZES:
Facebook Business Page header:  851 x 315px.
Twitter header:  1252 x 262px (note: any text should be on the right-hand side, not the middle)
WordPress Zero Gravity Theme header:  1096 x 250px (different themes have different-sized headers)
YouTube Channel Art:  a main image 2560 x 1440px, with the main focus in an area in the centre that’s 1546 x 423px.

>>Note:  every time you re-save a JPG file the quality degrades, to the extent that a JPG file that has been saved multiple times becomes no longer useable.  Where possible, send JPGs that have not been worked on or re-saved.

EDITING PRINT PHOTOS

What if the image you want to use is a print (film or non-digital) photo?  I can scan in your print photos and edit them for you.  Editing the resulting image will probably include removing smudges, stains and tears - which can be very time-consuming (or even impossible) with very old or badly damaged photos.  Usually, though, scanning and editing a print photo will still result in a clearer, better image, even if it isn't possible to remove all the imperfections.

>>Note:  scanned-in print photos usually will not give you as good an image as a digital photo.  I recommend using digital photos for most business uses.  On the other hand, scanning in your family print photos is an excellent way to put together a digital family photo album, or simply to preserve your old photos in another format.

WORKING TOGETHER:  

INITIAL CONSULTATION: before beginning to work together, we will discuss
your needs in a free personal consultation (in person or by phone or email).  

WORKSITE:  I generally work from my home office where I have all the tools and equipment I need, but I can work on-site with local clients in the Digby area of Nova Scotia.  

OPTIONS FOR GETTING YOUR MATERIALS TO ME:

FILE FORMAT:  Usually digital files will be sent to me in JPG format, but most other formats (TIF, PNG, etc.) are also acceptable.  Properly-sized JPG files are fine for both online and print use, and are acceptable at places like Shoppers Drug  if you want to use a commercial printer.  

If you prefer a different file format for your finished image, please specify the format you want when you order.  I can save digital files to a very wide variety of formats.  

>>Note:  It is possible to reduce a photo image with no problem, but an image cannot be made larger without losing quality.  Please send the largest possible original image.

RATES:  

Hourly:  $18/hour, usually billed monthly.
Or you can pre-pay for a block of time in advance.  (With a pre-paid block I will send you a timesheet showing the time used and the amount remaining).

Scanning and basic editing of a single print photograph usually takes around 15 minutes.  Basic editing of a digital image usually takes around 10 minutes.
Mail or courier costs (for sending and returning print photos for scanning/editing) are the responsibility of the client.
