Technical specs.

SCANNING.

Our scanning specifications are listed. It is important to understand the variations as they effect output quality. Good scan. Good quality.

SCREEN v PAPER.

The resolution for printing on paper is different to screens. It impacts on the final output size and quality. Screens are more forgiving than paper.

WHAT YOU GET.

We produce high quality files ONLY. From our files you can print and frame if you so desire. We have a preferred supplier and associate.

SERVICES.

Our essential services include photograph retouching and restoration. Colour improvement and general image enhancement.

IF YOU SCAN.

Firstly scan your damaged photo at as high a resolution as possible (SHOULD BE AT LEAST 600dpi at same size). Scan all photographs in colour and include any background material you want to show. For example, a scan of an original at about A5 size, at 600dpi will create a TIFF file of 8mb.
When you upload your image(s) to us, we can advise you of what size you can use the restored image for print on paper.
Scanning in jpeg format should be avoided as it provides less quality.
WHAT DPI SIZES MEAN FOR YOU.
Scanning at 1200dpi (A5 original) may be slow, but allows you to provide a file that can be printed on paper at A3 size (420mmx297mm) or (16”x12”). These scans can be used at 6000x4000px size on screens. That will show beautiful images on huge TVs or 27” Apple iMac monitors.
600pdi allows us to provide you with a file that can be printed on paper at A4 size. These scans can be used at full size on computer screens.
Our information is general in nature and does not discuss scanner quality, dynamic range and other technical matters that provide the BEST scans. It is here for you to save money and get a reasonable result.
A typical home printer/scanner has the following:
Scanning resolution
600 x 1200 optical dpi
Scanning Bit Depth (Input/ Output)
Greyscale: 16bit/8bit, Colour: 48bit/24bit (RGB each 16bit/8bit)

IF WE SCAN.

We always scan at least 600dpi at same size. But after consultation with you we may scan at a higher resolution. For example if the print supplied is small and you would like to show it at a larger final size, we will scan at 1200dpi.
For example if your image is a typical old 4×3″ (100x76mm) print then it is very difficult to create a really big print. A screen can show the same quality image at a larger size as screens are 72dpi (Mac) and 96dpi (PC) while a printed paper image needs to be 300dpi at same size.
What do we mean by same size?
It simply means that if an image is physically 100mmx100mm, scanning at 300dpi will allow ithe scan to be printed at high quality at 100mmx100mm. Any increase in final printed size will DECREASE quality.
Screens can show the image successfully at much larger sizes.
WHAT DPI SIZES MEAN FOR YOU.
1200dpi allows us to provide you with a file that can be printed on paper at A3 size (420mmx297mm) or (16”x12”). These scans can be used at 6000x4000px size on screens. That will show beautiful images on huge TVs or 27” Apple iMac monitors.
600pdi allows us to provide you with a file that can be printed on paper at A4 size. These scans can be used at full size on computer screens.
Our scanner is a professional scanner with a very high density rating. That is more important than dpi or any other measure of resolution. It also has better optics to give a clearer result.

QUALITY FILES.

Our delivery process is as follows.
Firstly you supply images and we provide a quotation based on our price listing and our investigation of the images you supply. On acceptance of the quote we then work our magic and supply you with an electronic “proof” emailed to you for approval.
If accepted, we the ask you for on-line payment via PayPal and send you restored files via email or we can put them in our Dropbox for you to move to your computer.

WHAT WE’RE DEVELOPING.
An innovative set of design products for discerning individuals and families.
While there is plenty of “generalist” stuff around.
Often a home is decorated with other peoples art. For example; posters with country names like FRANCE, ITALY etc (you can buy these everywhere), and you may have been to some of those cities, but rarely does an off-the-shelf poster show EXACTLY the countries YOU have visited. Or they are not “personalised” as MyBigBrag‘s are!
So MyBigBrag offers you the chance to see your painting, photo, place, family, cities, homes, suburbs, or whatever on all sorts of items.
I have had the pleasure of working with Chris from mybigbrag on the Canberra World Peace bell website.
One great creative idea was his combining of the photo of Nara Park with an overlay of a ghostly “fan” design which was the inspiration for Lauren in the architectural design. He also shot our video on “green screen” and superimposed images of our designs behind the model of the proposed gazebo.
