Moshofsky/Plant has many long hours of experience with electronic image manipulation and retouching. Many, many hours. This is a recent example of what we've done. Below is a photograph of the marquee at Portland's Fox Theater, which was rented out for this photo. A lot of the neon is damaged or burnt out--and the client wanted to have "Fox" replaced with "EXPO". In neon.
Here's what was done to this image:
Poster? Did someone say poster? Yes, this image started out as a 230MB scan. With cropping, we took it down to 125MB or so. Let us know if you've got a project along the same lines.
- The upper row of neon bordering the reader board was uneven. The lower row was copied, moved, and distorted to fit.
- Years of grime and dirt made the upper part of the reader board dark and dingy. We cleaned it up--at least in the photo.
- Stars were added to the left and right of the words "EXPO 95."
- And, of course, the neon at the top. If you keep your eye out for the poster, you'll see that there are even stanchions holding the new neon out from the face of the sign.
