Creative Retouching

We our proud of the retouching pedigree available at Rival Colour. Experience is the key to good retouching and our operators have been honing their expertise since the beginning of desktop publishing.


We offer a full photo drum scanning service. We digitize photos, slides, and negatives of any format using high-end commercial scanners that produce unmatched image quality. Our expert operators spend time with each individual frame to ensure ideal exposure, focus, color fidelity, cropping, and orientation. 

Drum scanning

We provide high-resolution, archival-quality scans. We take care to preserve all the subtleties of the original and extract the maximum information available in any film. Film images are future-proofed by providing as much raw information as possible, so that our extremely-detailed files allow for optimum reproduction quality at any size. We cater for large-scale fine art exhibition prints and can easily output any volume for online archiving of your precious images.


High quality art

Our scans capture all of the fine detail and color range of your original. Rival Colour's retouching experts also can correct color and enhance an image's details to achieve the client's creative vision. We provide images in RGB, LAB and CMYK color space. If your original art is too big to scan, we can digitally photograph the piece in our state-of-the-art studio. We ensure that all scans are retouched to remove dust and scratches and color corrected for optimum reproduction.
