Retouching and Scanning


As we like to say: “If you can lift it, we can scan it.” We digitise photos, artwork, slides, and negatives of any format to produce unmatched image quality. Our retouching and scanning expert operators spend time with each individual frame to ensure ideal exposure, focus, colour accuracy, cropping, and orientation.


Our high-end, commercial scanners (including our A1 flatbed scanner and our transparency scanner) provide high-resolution, archive-quality scans. We take care to preserve all the subtleties of the original image or document and extract the maximum information available in any film. Film images are futureproofed by providing as much raw information as possible, so that our 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.

Skilful Retouching

We are proud of the retouching pedigree available at Rival Colour. Experience is the key to the good retouching of artwork and photos – and our operators have been honing their Adobe Photoshop expertise since the beginning of desktop publishing. Rival Colour’s retouching experts can also correct the colour, and enhance an image’s details, to achieve the client’s creative vision.


We provide images in the RGB, LAB and CMYK colour 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 colour corrected for optimum reproduction.


If you’d like to chat to us about your scanning and retouching requirements, please call us on 020 8269 2852 or email enquiries@rivalcolour.com.
