The editing completed on your photos post processing includes but not limited to color correction, exposure, sharpness, clarity, and other general photographic adjustments to improve your images. We also process the files from RAW format to JPG, and backup both original and edited files. Your images are then uploaded to our cloud based storage site, as well as our in house network for proper storage. Finally an online gallery will be created for you to view your images from home.  

Additional editing (retouching) such as blemish removal, body slimming, stain removal, clothing adjustments, makeup adjustments, skin smoothing, braces removal, teeth whitening, eyes brightened and sparkle added (and just about anything you can think of to request!) can be done in addition by request. Retouching like this is $3-5 per adjustment, per person, per photo. For example, for one image to have three people with teeth whitening and skin smoothing could be $3 per edit (x2 requests) per person (x3) so a total of $18. See more about our editing services on the retouching page.

RETOUCHING (Additional Editing)

When you see your proofs...  Your images have been edited for color correction, cropping, general artist discretion changes (exposure, lighting, etc).  This first round of edits does not include facial or body editing such as skin blemishes, removing shine, body changes, stains on clothing, stray hairs, removal of scars or unwanted items.

Don't disregard a photo just because of some of the options that can be changed with Photoshop that would make you love it. Please don't hesitate to inquire on what exactly can be done to your photos!  Here are the 4 types of editing to consider when viewing your photos:

  • First tier editing:  this is already completed on your photos when you see your proofs. It includes lighting, color, cropping, contrast.
  • Second tier editing:  skin blemishes (2-3 blemishes total on face), face shine removal, skin smoothing   
  • Third tier editing:   All second tier edits PLUS extensive acne (more than 5 blemishes total on face), or body editing such a reducing the size of arms or midsection of body (liquify)
  • Special request editing:  head swaps, braces removal, glasses glare removal, stray hair removal, color changes of clothing, detailed removal or addition of any items (these edits are sent to a third party editing company and will be charged per their rates, quoted by image). Filters are also available which is an addition of sunflare, clouds, more. Just inquire for more!
