By now, we are all aware of the considerable "work" which goes into making people you see in magazine ads look so good - and by "work," I mean what is done after the portrait photography itself. Photo Retouching and Photo Restoration have reached astounding proportions in their ability to make the signs of all sorts of things disappear: lack of sleep, poor diet, overexposure to the sun, certain lifestyle choices, etc. As a member of NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals), I am constantly honing my skills with the most powerful image-manipulation software yet invented. Whether you would like to add those "perfect" finishing touches to your portrait (by removing the unwanted and enhancing what you like), or if you like to get creative and fun with your image - whether it's Glamour Photo Retouching, Wedding Photo Retouching or just favorite snapshots - you will cherish the results.
UPLOAD YOUR PHOTOS HERE
|If you have a digital file of the image, click the button below to upload it to me, along with your name, the name of the file you're uploading, email address and a description of how you'd like your image to change.|
|If you only have a print of your image, and you reside in the Chicago area, contact me to arrange dropping it off at my studio (it will only be scanned - original works are never altered).|
|If you only have a print of your image, and you reside outside of the Chicago area, please have your print professionally scanned as a .tiff file (.jpeg if unable to create .tiff) at 300ppi. You can then upload it from here.|
Here are the steps of the Online Photo Retouching Process:
*Please note that the digital image I will need to work with will have to be a certain minimum size/resolution if you intend to make prints from it. This means that if you only have a digital file, I will have to examine it to see if the Retouching is possible with the goal of printing in mind. If you have a print, it can be scanned to the appropriate size so this should not be an issue.

Why Capture Your Best for your Retouching or Restoration needs?
There is no substitute for Pride. Though they're your photos I'm working on, I consider them my photos, too. And I will apply the same perfectionist standards to your cherished images as I do to my own. Skill without pride equals compromise. And I will never compromise in my approach to your cherished pictures.
We all want to look our best in pictures, but circumstances are not always conducive to what we consider our "best." Call it a makeover . . . call it bringing out the inner you . . . or think of it as eliminating cosmetic distractions in pursuit of revealing the essence of who you are, Digital Retouching, when used properly, works hand in hand with Portrait Photography in capturing a genuine aspect of your personality. It compliments the photographic process by hiding things you do not want to stress and enhancing things you do.
|BEFORE/AFTER...Employing many of the modifications listed above, this example of Retouching powerfully illustrates its potential.|
The line between Basic and Premium Retouching is not always a distinct one. For instance, sometimes the removal of a wrinkle or scar might be more labor-intensive than other times, and as such, could fall into either category. Regardless, here is a general guideline as to what constitutes the two treatments:
Premium (includes Basic adjustments)
Extras (includes Basic & Premium adjustments)
Have any photos which you cherish - or would cherish - if not for some bothersome "flaw"? Whatever the problem, there's a good chance I can fix it. For instance, is there a picture in your collection which you would consider terrific . . . except for the fact that it is crooked? If so, there's a good chance it does not have to remain that way, since Capture Your Best can fix many crooked photos! Whatever the damage your photos have sustained, chances are I can fix it. If you have photographs with any of the following problems, contact me:
