Hi - Is there anyone that is able to adjust this image - so that we are in the centre of the image - but obviously keeping the background a consistent colour (and a suitable ratio to print)

I can fairly easily edit out the bit on the right to get it all the same colour - but to move us into the centre I need to add more of the background to the left of the image - if that makes sense.

Would really appreciate any help if possible

Thanks in advanced

Wow that was quick thanks so much.
I guess I can get a Normal 6x4 or 5x7 from it too if I crop in LR?

I’ll download it tomorrow and let you know when I’ve done it as I’m sure you don’t want it clogging up your Flickr.

Thanks again
Matt

Oh ok - sorry I don't think I made it 100% clear what I meant when I said about keeping it in a normal ratio. (I've downloaded yours from flickr - so feel free to delete if you - appreciate your help!)

What I really want to be able to do is print it in 6x4 - but to do this and keep us central (and enough space around us to 'let the image breathe' I think I need to add more background to the left of the image (centralising us) and obviously sort out the right side. I can get to a 6x4 by myself be editing the right side - but it means we are well off centre.

(I can just about get a 5x7 crop looking good - but again could do with a tad more space around us to make it look nicer!)


Is anyone able to help with that?

Thanks

Matt

Something like this ?

Crop the left and extend the right to centre the family ?

As it’s a uniformed background, should be simple ?

Thanks - Yes something like that would be great - But I don't have Photoshop so was hoping someone might be able to help me out as we like to send the photo to our family in their Xmas cards!

As no one else has attempted this yet I had a quick go with Elements, which I do not normally use. Untitled-1 small.jpg
I do not have a Flickr account so if you want the full size I would have to email it. If no-one else produces a better version just PM me an email address, a temporary gmail one would be best.
