It is an opportunity to make a good impression. We all know that first impressions do matter. For this reason it is sometimes considered desirable to remove imperfections from headshots or mildly enhance the portraits.

Super advanced headshot editing covers everything listed under 'Basic' and 'Advanced'. Additionally, in this category we can do pretty much anything you ask for. This includes: Background swapping, i.e. taking you out of an existing photo (probably a group photo) changing you into suitable attire and placing this new picture against a studio background. And voila, you have an elegant portrait. No paying exorbitant fees to portrait photographers if you'd rather have that money.


Women can send pictures without makeup and we will give you a virtual makeover with make up application exactly the way you love it. Sometimes our favorite photos are the ones taken informally, so if you already have a great looking picture but the setting is not suitable, we will edit it. By the way, we can also remove dental braces, eyeglasses in some cases. We also carry out makeup correction with airbrushing in case the existing cosmetic work is not appropriate for a business headshot.


We also offer retouching service for expression correction in the portraits so as to prevent a less than personable first impression. Frown lines are touched up with contour shadowing and the facial features are altered and softened to convey a confident and friendly appearance.

Our portrait headshot editing and retouching service is also widely used to create formal photos that can be used on resumes, curriculum vitae (CV), bio-data, employee profiles, ID cards and visiting cards. Headshots are also featured in print publications, advertisements, articles on the Internet, online profiles on social networks and even on television! We are also called upon to remove / replace the image background in passport photos and visa photos for application purposes. This includes resizing the dimensions and composing the images as per the country specifications.


Free online headshot photo editing programs and apps

There are several free online image editing services that can make a slight improvement in the portraits but if you have specific requirements these programs won't be able to do the job. There are also many photo editing and skin retouching apps out there but they all seem to produce that dreadful plastic doll look. But in our case, the photos are hand-edited by expert digital artists. Real people work with you to understand your unique needs.

Testimonials and reviews about our photo retouching service

Business headshot editing review by real estate agent, Karen Mueller - Ontario, Canada

"Omg, this is amazing. I'm very impressed with your skills. I will be recommending you to everyone I know and there are always new agents in the office who like me can't afford headshots taken by pro photographers. Have a great week and thank you again."


Wedding portrait retouching review by newly wed Susan Walker - Brimingham, United Kingdom

This is to show my appreciation for the work done by Mona Nath and her team on my wedding photos. I had a low budget wedding in the Bahamas. At the end, the local photographer delivered the pictures in a pen drive and was never to be seen again. I was so disappointed with the results but now all my precious photos have not only been fixed but greatly enhanced. I couldn't ask for more!
