    Hey sassie try these guys we used them for our family portrait:)

    Not sure on price the O/H will not tell me as it was a present to yours truly!

    That canvas fella off Ebay...someone else will fill you in more.

    Should try Asda or Tesco. I know they both do canvas prints and i think asda do the pic restoration thing.

    There was voucher posted for money off Aldi canvas print a couple of days ago, I think.

    easy enough to monochrome it, you can then even buy a canvas off of photobox.

    Do the retouching yourself (or get someone from here to do it) rather than pay - its not a hard job...

    your planning on taking a print to the shop? can they even do this? I cant see them being able to take a 7x5 and blowing it up to a decent sized canvas without it becomming pixalated, i may be wrong, I thought they'd only do it from a digital file.

    Take the pic; stick it on the photos thread and someone will do it for you, I'm 99% certain - then go to the on-line sites. They all do canvasses - I think the Photobox and Pixum are probably the best.
    A couple of people - esq and alictait I think put up pics of their posters the other day.

    How do,

    the pic touch up is fairly straight forward
    I did one of my neice. I can do that bit for you if you want then you can just do the rest online with a canvas company. let me know.
    PS you can email me if you want me to see the one i did, tis awesome i think!

    just changed my avatar to show my pic, good eh?

    small image ginge, it that true selective colouring or have you adjusted they colours on the original layer?

    enhanced them a bit but just for the pics benifit really, put a depth of focus on there as well to make my neice stand out more.

    Is it already digitized or is a photo? If its a photo, do you have a (decent) scanner?

    how do i post up pics? and i;ll show you the ones I have done

    ok i think i havent pt this across to well, will start again, i want to take a pic of the kids and turn it to black and white and put on canvas, i have a digital camera

    No worries Sassie,

    Take a picture on the camera, put in on your pc. then aske someone (like me) politely to change it to how you want, ie make it black and white whilst keeping a bit in colour (is that correct) and then they can send it back to you and you can then go onlione to a cavas supplier and get it printed and mounted.

    That's exactly what I understood ( plus a bit of colour didn't you say?):thumbsup:
