Digital Retouching & Manipulation Studio Franco. Eastbourne and Cape Town
Got an old photo you want revived? Want to compose an image out of several
Lets get started.
At Studio Franco Design - I specialize in image enhancement, color correction, photo montage, photo compositing and photo retouching.
I include 'Examples of Everything', because of the varied requests I have received.
As well as visual puns.
Such as "Etaoin Shrdlu". Etaoin Shrdlu is the approximate order of frequency of the 12 most commonly used letters in the English language. A combination of letters set by running a finger down the first, and then the second left-hand vertical banks of six keys of a Linotype machine, to produce a temporary marking slug, not intended to appear in the final printing.
Images with a red border are available for purchase as Hi-Res Digital Prints on: https://www.artmajeur.com/moreno-franco
