Photo & digital retouching is fundamentally about perfecting raw photographs & videos. There are many names applied to the related tasks: photoshopping, processing, editing, restoration, slimming, age reduction, etc but they all revolve around a concept of taking an existing photograph or video clip and maximizing its appearance and/or impact. Creative artists use digital tools to take still or moving images from good (or not so good) to great.

This is very important to many Big Innovations clients as a good chunk of our work is in customer-touching deliverables: advertising, marketing creative, technology, product & website designs and so on. Your buyers want to be impressed. Average quality will not wow them. We can use a wide range of digital processing & retouch capabilities to turn plain or so-so into amazing. If new creative or messaging has one chance to make the targeted impression, it must be stellar. This is one cost-effective way to do that.

We utilize best-of-breed artists in our deep network of talent to work this magic. Typical engagements of this specialty is bundled with other deliverables in marketing or Emarketing, sales creative, website or product design, Power Point & multimedia presentations and so on. The task is often to make a person(s), company, product(s), website, presentation, etc. pop, so that it woos the greatest amount of attention and/or buyers.

While our artists can work wonders along these lines, we are most often asked for the following specific kinds of digital retouch services:

  • Video, Photo & Portrait Enhancements- de-aging (make subject(s) look younger, more attractive, etc.), mole or blemish removal, re-shaping subjects (digitally trim that waistline a few sizes), enhance the wow of big events (new acquisitions, new product launches, company parties, new store openings, partnerships, alliances, etc), make a team look more professional, wiser, enthusiastic, capable and so on, head shots, press release images, etc.
  • Image Clipping- erase practically anything from pictures or video that would otherwise be perfect. Our artists can remove almost anything in a shot resulting in a final deliverable that looks like whatever was lessening the impact of the photo or video was never there.
  • High Value Asset Editing and/or Retouching- improve the presentation of bigger ticket items you want to sell like real estate, yachts, jewelry, automobiles, time shares, tourist destinations, etc. Typical photos & video can look OK when delivered to us but they can really sizzle after our artists get to enhance them.
  • Photo Restoration- bring old, fading photos or video back to life. Share company history with old photos or video restored to look like they were shot yesterday. Replace missing pieces of photos (repair damage including breaks/scratches/tears in the original negative). Colorize black & white media or grayscale or sepia tone media shot in color.
