General Portrait Retouching
It has become a matter of routine these days for our clients to request that enhancement be made to the images we capture for them. Everything from fixing a minor blemish to skin smoothing to removing scars and bruises. All of these things can be done, but take time to do to a level that meets with our professional standards.
For our studio portrait work, we build the cost of minor retouching into our print packages. So for example, if a family arrives for portraits with a child who has a scratch over their eye, we will repair this before printing. However, if the child has a black eye, we will suggest that the family reschedule the session because this is a more extensive restoration and will add a considerable cost to the project.
For all other work we charge an hourly rate for this service. Please consult with our staff when booking.
Some of our clients will request more extensive retouching and enhancements work be done to their images. This can range from removing stretch marks from their stomach area to adding color to areas of grey hair.
For others, they may request that we cut them out of back grounds and place them into off worldly scenes. We are only limited by our imaginations and, of course, our budgets.

WMD provides a full restoration and enhancement service for our clients. We take your old and damaged photos and restore them back to cherished family heirlooms.
This can be a tedious and slow process. Depending on the extent of the repairs required to the image it can take from 1 to 20 hrs worth of work to achieve the project goals, as set out by the client. It is for this reason that we can not give a hard quote for these projects. What we do is consult with our clients to determine the level of restoration that is desired and make determination of the estimated amount of time it will take to achieve these objectives. We charge an hourly rate agreed upon by the client and keep them informed of the progress that is being made as the work is carried out.
Our experience has helped us to be very efficient and accurate in our work, helping to make us competitive and accurate in our estimates. Many of our clients who hire us for scanning work, have received minor restoration services to their old images without ever realizing it or being charged, because we have created processes to help automate the work to a point where it takes just a moment to apply.
