somebody help?

I finally got the chance to meet my hero, Ashlee Simpson. The radio contest was won out of the blue and I didn't get the chance to look my best for the photos I would look at for my whole lifetime. I have been super busy with catching up with school and doing Weight Watchers. All this stuff, I have no time to retouch these photos.

If somebody could PLEASE do their best to retouch a few pictures.
Maybe like smooth out the complextion, whiten teeth, smooth out eye lines/eyebrows, slim a tad, but overall the double chin. Ashlee and Bobby were squeezing me in so tight and my face scrunched. Any other things you think would make it look better is fine. Just please make it look natural and not to dramatic of a change.


If there are any questions, please ask me.

Re: somebody help?

Are you paying, or are you soliciting for a free retouch?

Free I guess. This is my first post so do people usually pay?

Posters are usually in the process of learning and ask people how to do things or how to improve their skills.

Re: somebody help?

Viva,

Just so you are aware, that's not really the purpose of these forums. The goal RetouchPRO is to provide step-by-step assistance to those wishing to retouch their own photos. It is a place to come and learn. Simply providing retouching services doesn't tend to teach anyone anything, so we try to stay away from that. Don't feel bad, many other people have come here for the same thing, we just can't provide it.

You basically have two options. If you have Photoshop or another similar image editing program, you can request some guidance on how to best fix up your pics. Or you could try posting your pics in the Classifieds section and see if someone could take them on as a job, although you'd likely have to provide some payment for their services.

Feel free to take a look at the RetouchPRO FAQ if you have any other questions. Hope that clears things up!

Oh, I'm sorry. I was looking through and that is what some people had done. I have photoshop but have never tried to do what I am trying to do. Could somebody get me a tutorial or outline steps to de-emphasize double chins? Also, is there a way to take away part of a picture and replace it with the pictures background? I don't know how to explain the last part.

If you post us a picture, we'll best be able to assess what needs to be done and should be able to supply you with details.
