The original image below of Derby’s Prison Boab Tree was emailed to me from a client in Sydney who was looking to have the fence and people removed from a photo she had taken herself. The image required approximately one hour of editing in Photoshop after which it was professionally printed at 11×14 inches on premium grade metallic paper and posted to the client who was taking the print to the US as a gift for a friend.
Here’s what the client had to say:
Hi Kirsten, I have the photo in my hot little hand!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH, SOOO SOOO HAPPY WITH THE FINAL PRODUCT, I LOVE IT !!!! I am so glad I went with the metallic finish as it really polishes it off well. I know my friend will love it too, and it will be a very special photo for him. Now it is packed and ready in my suitcase. Thanks again. One very satisfied customer. Marisa
Before and after:
Cosmetic retouching example
This detail shows the results of cosmetic retouching on an image of a 10 day old baby. The full image included her 3 year old brother who looked fantastic and while the baby was in a good pose, she had a slightly wrinkled brow and some visible scratches, flaking skin and colour variation in her face which is typical for a young baby. In the ‘after’ image you can see how cosmetic enhancement has been used to remove the flaking skin and scratches from her face, lighten the dark circles under her eyes, smooth out the wrinkling in her brow and even out her colouring.
