"I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Bill Coburn for creating such a terrific website for our store Savor the Flavor.  Two years ago I had a web site done and it never looked this professional, nor did I receive the excellent service that was provided to us by Bill and Side by Slide.  Once again many kudos to Bill Coburn and his creative talents."  --   Karen Keegan

“Since 1999, Bill Coburn has designed websites for Baumann Research and Development Corporation and its subsidiary Baumann Engineering.  Bill has also consulted on the design of the Bautech.com website.  In every instance, Bill Coburn has performed in a very professional manner and the websites speak for themselves as to the very high quality of Bill’s work.  It has now become quite common for my clients to comment very favorably about these websites that Bill has designed.” --  Hanns Baumann, owner, Baumann Research and Development Corp., Baumann Engineering


We now have the capability of converting your documents to Adobe Acrobat for the internet, and can also post your PowerPoint slideshows to your web page.  Here's an example of each, from a job we did for a client who recently presented a paper to the Structural Engineer's World Congress in Osaka, Japan.  We were called in to improve their existing PowerPoint presentation, then we made it internet ready and posted it to the internet.  We also converted their Word document to Adobe, and posted it for them.

Digital imaging can be used to create and/or alter photos for many types of business applications.  Here are some samples of digital imaging work we've done for various clients.

Altered aerial shot showing proposed lot adjustment, elevations, and pricing

Thumbnail page with links to 10 shots of photo rendering for proposed 20' x 80' concrete wall along the coast. Newport Beach Planning Commissioner held up the meeting to thank our client for the quality of his graphics (His proposed wall was approved).

Virtual Project Walk-thru - We took photos and added text and markers that allowed an out of town contractor to bid a retaining wall job, saving our client a couple hundred dollars.

We used our digital imaging skills to modify and/or create the following advertisements, using the client's artwork. Click on the picture to see it larger.  Note that for the web they've been resized and the resolution (quality) reduced to allow the photos to upload faster. 

The same advertising insert that the above appeared in had a top section on the cover, which was not an ad, but involved the use of our digital imaging skills.  Click on it to see it larger.
