Colour-Correction

To produce the finest print quality, images should ideally be supplied fully adjusted for density and colour-corrected.  If images aren’t colour-corrected, there’s a real risk that there’ll be a lack of consistency and continuity in the printed images in terms of how light or dark they look and in their colour.  A service is offered whereby images supplied by clients can be fully colour-corrected at a price of £1.00 per image.  For images taken and supplied by Stuart Hay Photography, colour-correction by the laboratory during the printing and binding stage of the process is included.
