PROCESSING

  • In addition to its consultancy skills AXiO has developed some hands-on in-house skills synonymous with image …

    These in-house skills are augmented with a stable of like minded operatives, other small businesses passionate about their particular speciality.  Our collective aim is to never over-sell and always lead others in what we do.  Most of what AXiO does is one-off and therefore has to be priced per requirement - we offer obligation-free estimates and quotes.

  • RAW image processing …

    AXiO has grown its photography skills along with the development of image processing and manipulation technology.  Today, using an emerging skill, Axio manually processes the “RAW” data that is produced when taking a photo.  Previously, manipulation of the RAW data has only happened automatically within the camera, defined by and limited to the photographer’s selection of a processing template (sport, portrait, landscape, etc.); the huge RAW data file was then deleted in favour of the automatically produced compressed image (jpg); modern cameras will retain the RAW data if required.  Being uncompressed, the RAW data gives substantially greater adjustability than a jpg file, being heavily compressed, could ever do. Add the ability to tweak RAW data manually to the use of fast computers, specialised software and high end colour calibrated monitors, the end product is simply a superior rendered image, one which often needs no further post render adjustment.  At AXiO we have trained and practised to a high skill level on the manual processing of RAW data - just like used to be done (and sometimes still is) in the “darkroom” with light and chemicals on film and paper.  RAW data processing is not limited to in-house, AXiO offers this service to trade and consumers alike.

  • Photo editing …

    Predominantly AXiO negates the need for photo editing during its RAW image processing.  However, we do offer photo editing per se for needs such as retouching, object removal, photo merging, focus stacking, high dynamic range stacking, text and object insertion, background removal, special effects (fx), special output/file type creation and so on – processes which wrongly are generally referred to by many as “photoshopping” or similar.  There are many who offer “photoshopping” to a good commercial standard but few who have up-skilled successfully to the surging forward RAW data processing technology as we at AXiO have.

  • Photo printing …

    Quality images demand quality printing and mounting – from archival quality prints through framed artworks to printing on acrylic blocks, glass and steel.  AXiO guides its customers to the right media for displaying their artworks and images – if not in-house we procure the appropriate skill base from tried and tested specialist suppliers to ensure the best quality for any given process.  AXiO’s photo printing suits homes, offices, museums, displays and signs alike.

  • Photo mounting …

    AXiO only prints and mounts work it has created and in-house AXiO caters for images up to A3+.  Past this size AXiO works with trusted suppliers around Australia, suppliers known for being one of the best in their particular speciality.  Our in-house photography produces high resolution images that are suitable for quality giant large format prints, they also produce stunning large artworks for the home and office.

  • Photo frames …

    AXiO now offer quality inexpensive frames with acrylic fronts, matt and mount for AXiO’s artworks up to A2 (frame size).  AXiO does this in two ways - ready to hang or as a DIY kit.  We stock standard sizes and colours of frames, with other sizes and colours available upon request with delivery direct from our supplier.

Please refer to our galleries on this website to get the odd visual snapshot of some of our work.
