Welcome Grant!!! Perhaps you could start a thread describing your business. There are lots of folks who would be interested and having the info under its own thread would make it easy to find/keep up on! Look forward to hearing more from you! Again, Welcome aboard!!! Tom

Hey Grant! Glad to have you aboard. Although I didn't check out *everything* on your site, what I did see looks fantastic! Like the others, I think you might have something to share that would be enjoyed by all.

Ed

Thank You all for all of your kind comments!
Tom, - not sure how I could describe our business as it has only been operational for a relative short time. Basically it came out of a natural progression from many years of 'playing around' with Photoshop. I was doing the odd image for friends and relatives etc, which of course they showed to friends who then approached me to 'do something' for them, which led me to the natural progression of starting a buisness. At this time it is still a 'part time' passion (hence the name Overtime Images) as I still work full time in the Professional Audio industry, Although I would LOVE to progress to doing work like this as a full time occupation.
Blacknight - As far as the finished product is concerned , I now burn the finished product on to CD and take it to a photographic lab to have printed. I can not stress the importance of establishing an excellant relationship with a lab/printer, I tried x 3 before settling with my current lab. After a quick check, (maybe an a small curves/levels adjustment) they print as many copies as I request. I did try in house printing, but gave it away due to size constaints, blocked jets, concern over fading prints - you name it. I guess I just decided that I wanted to focus on image manipulation rather than printing, it does mean that you have to VERY carefully check the finsihed work before burning to CD though!


Regards
Grant
