Frequently Asked Questions:

Portrait retouching is the process of removing the small defects in an image that initial photo editing did not correct. This technique helps remove the unnecessary elements on an image and correct the natural imperfections of the models. It can also be used to manipulate certain factors such as face and body width, skin color and smoothness, etc. It improves the final version of the photo by enhancing the overall look of the model. This is the final step to add any finishing touch to an edited image.

This is very popular among many professional photographers because it’s the best way to create perfect pictures. If initial photo editing does not cut it, image retouching can help improve the finished product. With retouching, the beauty of an image is enhanced. This can help you showcase your photography skills while magnifying the beauty of your clients. It’s normal to have flaws even make-up can’t cover. For example, photo retouching can help smoothen any wrinkles and hide any blemish on your face. It’s normal for clients to want retouched images that show them at their best. In fact, many publications prefer highly-retouched images that amplify their model’s best features. 

Aside from instantly elevating your raw takes, retouching can also help you save time and money. For example, the photographer notices a small blur caused by a tiny dust on the lens. Instead of reshooting, the image can be retouched to remove this defect. 

Portrait retouching can help you hit that sweet spot to make your clients love your photographs even more. The higher the satisfaction rating, the more clients you attract. Whether it’s by word-of-mouth or by your portfolio, professionally retouched images will make your brand stand out.

It takes time to master photo retouching, and with business, time is gold. Instead of wasting time learning the ropes of editing, you can use it to polish skills you are best at- taking photographs. You don’t need to spend time editing your takes. Focus on getting more clients and doing more shoots. Grow your business and leave all the post-editing to the professional editors. You will get more sales when you have more time to do more shoots.

Thinking of hiring an in-house team? That’s an added stress to your business. Hiring more people will mean having more people to manage. Aside from extra cost, it’s an extra responsibility for your business. Why hire when you can outsource for a hassle-free editing process? You’ll get top-notch portrait retouching services at such affordable rates. Pay for photo retouching services only when you need them.

Our diverse team of photoshop experts are specialized in different types of photo retouching services. Our team consists of clipping math and masking experts, color, skin, and hair specialists, and photo stylists.

We determine the best editor for your project to ensure that you get the best quality of portrait photos.

Aside from a matched photo editor, each client is also assigned a dedicated US-based account manager. They are available to answer queries or give progress reports about their image retouching requirements via Zoom, call, or chat.

Our photo retouching services are fairly priced, starting from $5.00 per image up to $15.00, depending on the complexity of the editing requirement.

You also have more time to accept more photoshoot projects. While you are taking away the stress of editing, you can grow your business at the same time.
