How it works
To get started all we need is the text and images you want to include in your cd design, and a deposit. If you don't have any materials that's OK too - just a title and the genre of your music will do. We'll then discuss with you any expectations for the completed design. We can follow your specific design instructions or create a concept on our own.
In 5-7 days we'll send PDF proofs for your review. If you're not happy with the first proofs, we'll keep on designing and revising until you're satisfied with the results. At that time we'll send you high resolution, print-ready PDFs to the exact specifications required by your chosen cd manufacturing company. We can even recommend a cd/dvd replication company that best suits your needs.
Photos To Use For Your Graphics
If you want a good looking cover it needs a good pics. Your Camera Should Be At Least 5 Mega Pixels, please make sure you have a white background behind you, it's more easier for me to replace it by an other one
A Few Examples
If you have any old or damaged photos yearning for new life, you've come to the right place!
Yes! most images can be fully restored, and some can even be made better than original!
How do I do it?
I do believe, however, that some of you are interested in what exactly is the "magic" I do here. So, here is a short review of the basic steps of photo restoration work that I practice.
Needless to say that since every photo is unique and different in terms of condition, the steps for a good photo restoration service varies from photo to photo. However, there are some basic steps which tend to do the job in most cases. This short review, embedded with my latest works, introduces the method of adjusting the RGB (stands for Red, Green, Blue) levels separately.
This method is used for 'squeezing' extra details, as much as possible, from a damaged image. This is done using "Histogram" option (I'm referring to PhotoShop in this article. Most of other advanced graphic software share however the same functionalities). Put it simple, Histogram shows the division of the colors (black-white). Thus, the more plate the Histogram is, more colors are presented in the image.
Then, once colors are evenly devided, I zoon in close and take a good look on the photo. This is when I trace dust, texture, tears, scratches, etc. This is how I evaluate the amount of work need to be done, and give a quote accordingly.
The first of work is to correct RGB levels and the Histogram now has most of the image data in the central area – allowing me more raw material to work with.
Once zooming is, I see a lot marks on this picture. There are many ways to repair these. Some prefer to use the history brush but here is my preferred method is to copy the parts need to be restored to a different new what so called "layer", and allow PhotoShop filter to remove this noise. This part is tricky, as removing noise from a photo always compromises its level of details.
