AirClix will remove photographs or artwork from frame prior to digitizing. Adobe Photoshop is used to repair and enhance the digital image in order to obtain outstanding Giclee prints on photographic or cotton/archival quality papers.

The prints look better than the original and can be customized to client requirements such as tone, size, paper types.


Examples of Auto VS Manual Color Correction.

Posted Jan 29, 2016

Photoshop’s “autocolor and contrast” correction on digitized images usually results in great color balance for each image. However, sometimes manual manipulation is required! This is why every image is checked for correct color balance after batch processing scans.
