Glad to help! :-)

For what it's worth...pageant retouching is one of those subjects that really seems to get people going, whenever it's brought up here. There are, I believe several people on this forum who do pageant retouching, with varying degrees of skill--but it seems to be something that everyone has an opinion on! I honestly don't think that people mean to put anyone else down...but folks can get very emotional and protective when they think of someone wanting to "improve" a little cutie like your daughter, even when it's only practicing. (Just didn't want you to feel it was anything personal--it's a controversial subject. :-/)

(And your daughter IS a little cutie pie! She looks like a joy to be around--I surely do envy you! :-))

Hi everybody,

Jackson5mom,

Welcome to RP!

yes, Pageant is a very controversial topic here at RP .... and many members feel very strongly about it and, even though personally I don't like the idea of making sweet little girls look very grown up and heavily made up, I agree with what you said, pageant retouching is
Quote:
something that A LOT of people do. They don't retouch these photos to hang on the mantle and pretend their children look like this. It's a competition at pageants...in fact, the comp is usually called glamour retouched...It's more about the graphic artist than the child.
. Grafx, one of our Members, is a professional Pageant retoucher ... you might find this Thread quite interesting as there she gives important tips on the topic.

That said, I also worked on the picture of your very, very sweet little daughter ... actually on her teeth only ... using the copy&paste technique and the liquify filter.
