The picturesque towns of Jedburgh and Melrose are photographed in detail. It's planned to feature other  towns and villages from the Scottish Borders.

Our speciality are panoramic images or 'panoscapes' consisting of several images carefully stitched together for sweeping border landscapes and meticulously detailed scenes capable of being printed several feet wide. These ultra-wide images are ideal for waiting rooms, board rooms, offices and the home.

View the gallery's for examples. Prints available from stock or commissioned.

    Repairs / Restoration

Do you have any photographs or documents that are faded, scratched, torn or creased?

Would you like to remove or add a person to a photograph or perhaps change the background?

Enter the main site and check out some of the photo restoration and repair examples. No job is too small or too difficult for us to tackle and being highly skilled with Adobe Photoshop, anything is possible.



No matter how good a photographer you are, most work can benefit from optimisation.

What is optimisation in the photographic sense?

 Optimisation is carefully preparing images to  achieve the highest quality and best possible reproduction dependant on the finished media.

Preparing images for the web, for DVD, or large format print reproduction require different processing techniques to produce the best results.

With years of experience in traditional and digital techniques and preparing prints to exhibition standards, try Borderpics for hand printing and enlarging. 

Large batches of photographs or images to process including contrast adjustment, colour management, resizing or sharpening? No problem. Ask Borderpics for a free quotation.

Perhaps you've heard about batch processing, workflow and actions in Adobe Photoshop or Elements but you don't have the time to make them work? Borderpics can assist. 

 Web Design / Publishing

From a one page 'brochure based' design to a multi-page corporate web site, Borderpics can provide a solution tailored for your purpose and your budget.

Photography and design are such an important part of creating a website, and there are benefits to be gained from 'keeping it all under the one roof'.

Photographers - need a web base solution to display or sell your work? Why not ask for advice. We may recommend one of the many solutions available on the market today. Perhaps you need help automating the upload and processing of your photographs for the web, it costs nothing to ask.

       Photo Finishing

Tired of seeing your photographs produced the same old way? Matt or gloss are no longer the only finish that can be applied to a photograph.

Have you considered enlarging your favourite photograph and having it reproduced on canvas, sepia toned, made into a drawing or cartoon? Why not have your favourite image printed on a T-shirt for that special occasion or alternatively, create a jig-saw for a present.

 From stock or to commission, Borderpics can produce pictures of people, premises, or products that can be finished in a variety of media and formats.

 Montage Service

A montage is the ideal way to combine several photographs into one complete image rather than simply display a collection of individual photographs presented in a multi-mount type frame. 

A montage skilfully compiled and presented can depict an event, a family, a hobby, or a complete lifetime. It is a unique and personal item that makes an ideal gift for a special occasion such as a wedding, anniversary, or Christmas present.

See the montage page for examples but consider the following ideas for gifts; wedding photographs, christenings, your pets, holiday memories, special birthdays, anniversaries, hobbies, collections, school years, family tree, sports teams and trophies.

A commission can include photographing objects / items / people or scanning existing photographs to create a montage of your choice.

Web Site  Photography 

Compiling a web site for your business, holiday home or bed and breakfast?

You deserve photographs that display your property or goods in the best possible light. First impressions count!

You may require faithful reproduction or images to be enhanced but either way, they should load quickly on your web page but not at the expense of quality.

See examples here. 

How many times have you seen interior shots of  a room where only a small area is covered and the viewer is given little idea of the overall size or light levels?

How often are buildings represented with sloping walls and distorted edges? Many photographers stick on a wide angle lens, power up their flash gun and snap. 

At Borderpics, we take extra care of your work and apply special techniques when taking photographs and later when optimising for production on the web.

Ambient light levels are carefully considered and panoramic techniques are applied to give realistic wide angle views devoid of converging verticals (sloping edges). See examples of previous work.

 Bespoke Framing

Borderpics now offer a bespoke picture framing service at competitive rates. Photographs captured by a local photographer or your own pictures or photos can be framed ready to hang.

Using professional equipment, Borderpics can produce mounted prints ready to frame or we can supply finished bespoke picture frames incorporating your own document, print or photograph. 

Photographs from the gallery's can also be ordered as framed prints, see options and prices.

       DVD/CD  Authoring

Your photographs can be compiled as a slide show complete with music and sound effects or simply transfer your images to CD or VHS cassette. Try Borderpics for quality and style.
