RESCUE, RETOUCHING & RESTORATION
Sometimes you need a little Photoshop help to add a sky; fix blown highlights or wonky colors; remove eyeglass glare; swap heads; remove awful shadows or smudges; add or move subjects; take out unwanted people or objects; take off those braces a few years early or help make someone look a little younger, thinner or brighter. Or all of the above!

PORTRAITS  or OLD PHOTOS
Family * Children * Boudoir * Wedding

Sometimes it just isn't practical for you to spend hours retouching a portrait, boudoir shot or restoring an old client photo. And it's really important to do a pixel-by-pixel retouch in these cases--our specialty. Just add at least our cost onto your price and you will make money without getting stressed out!
Minimum Order: $100

We'll even set up a private FTP upload site for you.
You will need to download FileZilla first (it's free)

The Ring of Kerry, Ireland before and after Image by Marcia Gold

Fields of trees and brush were removed; sheep were added! The light was changed from dark cloud shadows to a sunny day; and miscellaneous boats, islands and telephone poles were removed. We even finished building the house and took away all the construction materials.
