Standard retouching: $25.
All images see a tremendous improvement with our Standard service. This service generally includes a light treatment of the following: blemish removal, eye enhancement (including under the eyes), line softening, skin tone evening, teeth whitening, slight fly away taming, color correction, and color enhancement. If other minor required services are discovered in the retouching process, we'll do them for free.
Please note that any services that require an excess of time will be considered Custom. This is especially true of fly away taming, which can be highly labor intensive with long, frizzy, or unkempt hair.

Some photos demand more intensive work. Our Custom service generally includes, but is not limited to: heavy fly away taming, makeup removal, skin tightening, smile augmentation, neckline trimming, waistline trimming, object removal (e.g. braces, jewelry, background pieces), hair thickening, hair removal, and color changing.
If you require any work above and beyond our Standard service, go to our place order page, and once the image is in your cart, click on it to find the Custom services text box. Describe the services, changes, or effects desired and be sure to submit your request. From there, you won't be charged; we'll respond to you via email with an estimate. While these services will be more expensive than our Standard service, they vary from photo to photo. There is a charge for each service you select, and price depends on the image and complexity. We will quote you based on your notes. You then choose which services, if any, you'd like. Rest assured, we will do our best to keep our prices low and our turnaround quick.
When ordering retouching, please keep in mind that there is no such thing as a "standard image." Because every person and every photo varies, we evaluate submitted images on a case-by-case basis. If we see any potential complications with your images or the services requested, we will notify you via email and resolve the issue before proceeding.
Please note that colors appear different on every monitor and when printed from every printer. While the difference may not be apparent to the naked eye, for absolutely precise control over every color, consult your printer.

Processing time: We pride ourselves on our quick turnaround time, generally 2-3 business days for orders. However, this cannot be guaranteed as it depends on multiple factors, including our receipt of payment, our communication with you prior to the job, and the number of orders we have at the moment. If we expect significant delays, we will keep you posted.
