Why does Photo Retouching so often involve legs

When your camera misses out a vital part of your picture or even captures a bit that you don’t want in your picture,  get me to have a look at it and see what I can do.
Here’s a few I did earlier to allow for format changes when published:
This just needed a bit more leg painted to match and more background to fit the proportions needed for the promo. poster

 

Strip Lights were caught on the photographer’s image, reflecting on the highly polished floor. Some retouching and they are gone!

 

A wider image was needed for this tour promo. for Magnum so I added a matching background and a bit of trouser (not shown here)

 

Shot against a busy studio background, this photo needed clouds adding and lightening around the giant guitar chair plus mist around the lead guitarist’s feet.

 

But not all Photo Retouching involves legs …

> The original airbrush illustration for this ‘OCEAN ONE’ poster was square format. It needed to be A3+ (330mm x 450mm) for use as a poster so we added a higher (under sea surface) structure by changing its perspective and rendering to match original.

There’s a hold-up on this project.  We need a 3D surface print on 2D paper. Can anyone help?

We have written the story of Cinderella using only a few words so that on printing, it needs only a few pages.  This adaptation of Cinderella is the first in the World to include raised fonts  – both Braille and Moon, along with raised image outlines so as to help blind parents teach their sighted children to read.

We worked together with Pete Stonehouse at Acuitydesign.eu to produce these double braille books – doubly useful because they use both Braille and Moon fonts.

Pete produced both raised fonts by building up several layers of spot thermography but this warps the paper and is also a costly way to print it.  So can anyone help us to build raised braille using a 3D printer so that the dots stay fixed to the paper?

The production method we need to find must make it possible to outline the illustration as well as both fonts. Regular braille printers cannot achieve this.

Please contact me or Pete at Acuity Design if you have any thoughts that may help this very useful reading project.

Thanks.

Grant
