Hey all, I got my photoshoot images back from a con, but the prices that I was being charged for edits were pretty high (stretching into triple digits). Does anyone here know how to do really good photo edits or know of someone or somewhere I can go? If you offer a professional service we can also talk price.

An example of one of the photos:

If you can help, just post or message me either on here or on dA!

Thanks!

If you can edit yourself, you can download Gimp for free (it's open-source and similar to Photoshop). That's all I can suggest.

What sort of edits do you want? Background replacement? Added text or effects? To do those well usually takes several hours, and lots of skill and experience. Lots of people attempt, but very few do it well.

The sample you posted looks pretty good, in terms of lighting and composition.

I generally don't do extensive edits unless it's for a specific project, or I feel a particular inspiration from a certain photo.

I have done some photo manipulation/photo editing before. Depending on what you want done I can give it a shot. I posted a couple things on deviantART: [url]http://twitchhugstrees.deviantart.com/[/url]

Hello! Actually, I do editing. Here's my facebook page if you want to see my work. We can talk more if you're interested. [url]www.facebook.com/JessicaJPG[/url]

If the photographer hasn't given you rights to the image, you should get a release before altering a watermarked photo.

Yeah I have a lot of high res photos from the shoot, I just couldn't afford more edits.

There's quite a couple that I have with great lighting all over my page, the ones that are probably best for edits are:

The actual character: Lucian the Purifier
[url]http://competitive.na.leagueoflegends.com/sites/default/files/styles/wide_content_full/public/upload/lucian_article_banner.jpg?itok=nqHAbTWp[/url]

He's a character from League of Legends who travels through the shadow isles, a haunted island where the evilest of the undead and ghostly reside. He's there seeking revenge for his wife whose soul was stolen forever. He's pretty ruthless.

No worries I signed a contract that lets me use these photos. I have copies of a couple of these without the watermarks, but I requested them specifically with the watermarks because I like it haha. The logo makes the photo look higher quality.
