About Retouching
Minor retouching is included on all prints, regardless of size, and includes removal of small bruises, scratches, baby drool, and mosquito bites on children. For adults it would include removal or toning down of lines, wrinkles, blemishes, stray hair, or glare on glasses. It is necessary to alert us to any retouching you would like, so we don’t miss anything, or accidentally retouch something that you want left alone. Major retouching, such as swapping heads between images, is included on all images 16x20 and larger. For images 11x14 and smaller, head swapping is $100 per head.
