I have no photo editing skills. LOL. Really, its true. No matter how anyone tries to explain it to me, I never get it right. But I really need this photo edited, like taking the glare off the glasses and make the picture a bit more clear, if possible, ASAP. If anyone out there can help, it would be greatly appreciated!

That's going to be a hard task. Both eyes are partially obscured by the glare. Usually we can take the good eye and flip it to cover glare, but in this case the retouch artist will have to go in and reconstruct parts of the eyes.

If you're ever in a similar situation, take one photo with glasses and one without. Makes it easier to fix the glare later.

thank you, the glasses glare is gone away. but there is just one problem, there is some discoloration. but if that is unavoidable it is OK.

I kept the color the same and opened up the shadows a little to see the texture of the gown and cloned the glare away.

For some reason the color is more saturated on this site than it is on my calibrated monitor.

Welcome to RetouchPRO

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.

Evidently you do not want to learn so I will not explain anything other than give a life lesson... if your car breaks down try going to a PRO @ the repair garage and try to tell them that you know nothing about repairs but you need your car fixed ASAP and you would really appreciate it if they would fix it for you and wash and wax it to make it look a little brighter and better while they are at it. See how fast they jump right in and fix your car for free!

I commend you for being up front about just wanting something for free,, but taking advantage of the good will of others is not a good way to enter the adult world, therefore I will charge you for my services~!

My fee is for you to approach a military service member, shake their hand, and thank them for their service to your country.. "it would be greatly appreciated!"

1) I don't think you can charge any fee for advice you may give on this forum and 2) you'll spare us what appears to me to be political warmongering propaganda next time please.

I am sorry but I can't stand that kind of shit
