What they say about us
Professional Photoshop

James understands a brief and does a great job. Our Blue-chip client was delighted with his work. Having run my own design studio in the past, I recognise talent when I see it. I thoroughly recommend his services.

Ambrose Communications

You were by far the most competitive price and made the process really simple. And most importantly the image looks great.


I contacted Turning Turnip following an internet search and I could not have been more pleased with either the speed of service or the outcome – all my Retriever family together in one picture although some are not still with us – all done in time for a Christmas gift to my husband – thank you James

James did a fantastic job retouching a couple of photos of my late mother, seamlessly removing distracting background objects (and people). He was brilliant to deal with, delivering high quality work when he promised to at a very reasonable price. He would be my first port of call for any similar work in future.

Faded photo-retouch

I sent in a selection of old photographs and slides of various ages and condition, some professional images and some regular family snaps. Many of the images were badly colour faded and deteriorating. One particular image was a Black and White Wedding photograph of my parents, James worked his magic and it has been transformed into a beautiful full colour image it really impressed and completely blew away my parents and my sister thought it was an original colour photograph that she had never seen… Another image was an old school photo of myself that I always hated, but it’s been given a new lease of life with a fresh new background and I now really like it. Thank you Short Fuse Creations Ltd for all your hard work these restored images are much better than expected and a real testament of your impressive talents. Kind regards and a mountain of thanks. First class.

Turning Turnip has just completed a small commission for me, converting a low resolution image into a higher resolution by artistically adding detail and cutting around the outline and cleaning up several blurred features. I was very pleased with the result and the attention Turning Turnip gave me via e-mail, explaining the process and sending samples of the work for my approval at different stages. The service and the final image were both first class. I can thoroughly recommend Turning Turnip!

Lawrence Whiting

James at Turning Turnip (Short Fuse Creative Ltd) was very quick to respond and I had my images perfected within 24 hours. The quality is brilliant and he couldn’t have been more helpful, happy to make any amendments I asked for. I would certainly recommend his services.

Georgia Pickard

I contacted Turning turnip with a photo that had unfortunately been taken in direct light. I received a friendly reception on the phone. James provided a fast and professional service. He was able to work on the image to improve the lighting and return the photo to me.


I found this company on a Google search as I wanted a photograph changing to remove everything apart from one person. They were extremely professional, the work was done very quickly, over the phone and email, and the finished work is amazing. I cannot recommend James highly enough for his fast service and helpful advice. 5*
