CD Imaging

Photo Effects

When CD Imaging was formed back in 1995 there were only 2 contenders in the digital photo retouching arena and to add a special effect to a photograph was quite unique.

Now those same effects can be achieved on your mobile phone and tablet. However its not all about using special filters. Getting the right image, lighting and composition all come into play to produce the right picture.

The images on this page are just an example of what can be achieved by using professional digital imaging software.

Changes to lighting and colour, texture and size can have a dramatic effect on an image and the great thing is you will always have the original image untouched by the process.

Creating an HDR (High Dynamic Range) image dramatically increases the contrast of a photograph by capturing the dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image. Notice in the picture of this classic sports car how the HDR process has enhanced the beautiful grain in the wooden dashboard.

There are endless possibilities to what effects or changes you can apply to a standard photograph and we can provide advice on the suitability of an effect or border. However, at the end of the day it's the customers choice. Who knows, it could end up being the latest edition to the Tate museum!

The collection below shows the same original image in the top LH corner with various effects added along with two border effects.
