Image editing by a photographer for photographers

Leman’s Studios offers post processing services for photographers who wish to show the absolute best their photos can offer. Many photographers don’t look forward to the task of editing their own photos. This may be due to a lack of time, maybe you haven’t yet learned the skills necessary for editing in the many software programs available, or maybe you simply don’t want to. Photoshop, Lightroom and Capture One Pro are powerhouses, but can also be intimidating to say the least. I have been using Photoshop since it was first released as well as most other image editing / asset programs on the market today. Simply submit the images you would like to have processed, we accept either RAW, tiff or jpegs, using Google Drive, Dropbox, Hightail, or any other similar service. You will get the best results from RAW files if you have them. Tiffs and jpegs are limited on exactly how much information they hold in the file, so your highlights and shadows might not be completely recoverable for example. Your images are evaluated for color, focus, sharpness, clarity, dust or dirt. Upon evaluation some images may not be accepted due to excessive editing required for dirt, soft focus, etc, and would require retouching rather than processing. You would be contacted via email should this be the case before any work would begin.

Photos are primarily processed in Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop on a color calibrated 5K Apple monitor using Spyder technology. Typical adjustments that are made are:

• Remove Lens Aberrations

• Lens Correction

• Color adjustments in all areas but with added attention to highlights, mid tones and shadows

• Clarity

• Vibrance

• Saturation

• Targeted adjustments are made to selected areas in need of more corrections

• Adjustment Layers

• Dodging - Burning

• Overall Color

• Photo Filter

• Sharpness

Once the images are processed, they are then returned to you and will be ready for web, print, or whatever your needs might be. There is a minimum of 10 photos per submission. The fee for this service is $50.00 per each set of 10 images. Turn times are 3-5 days, depending on current work in house. Payments can be made with PayPal. See the payment section for instructions.
