Huh, thats the same picture, I retouched it for you. you said you wanted the background removed and i added some color.

Joking joking, I am not into that kind of work, but im sure that someone up here is. I can tell you this though, you would be much better off using a better photograph of your kids if that really your bag. I think all of that pageant stuff is awful, I jsut dont see the allure, maybe its a midwest thing I dunno. But I would think a better image to start with would prob be better suited

stacycarnow, Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends.

FAQ: Will you do my restoration/retouch/repair for me?
No. This is a site for learning, and we will gladly help you learn to do it yourself. We have a "Image Help" forum just for that purpose. Click on "Forums" on the navbar to get there. There is also a "Classifieds" forum if you're willing to pay one of our members to work on your photo.

That said,... I had a play with your picture.. it is not any way near pageant quality or what they would want.. but.. I had fun with it anyway.. If you want pageant quality please use the "Classifieds"

I used Photoshop and the background I made using Ulead Particle.Plugin (freeware)
