The wondrous Instagram filter has taught you everything about sexy lighting, flattering crops and the art of the blur.
But do you know how to airbrush away your blemishes? Or digitally trim your arm fat? Or delete that weird stranger from the background of your engagement shoot?
For serious photo fixes, you need to bring in the professionals.
PicTricks is an online service that connects users with professional photo correctors. All you have to do is upload any picture and say a little bit about what you’d like tweaked (“The dog is out of focus,” “My husband’s eyes are closed,” “There’s a weird glare in the foreground”). The retoucher will then noodle with your snapshot and send you a revised version within 24 hours.
Pricing starts at $5 a picture, but the more images you send, the less you pay for each one. Plus, if you’re ever unhappy with the work, you can get your money back, no questions asked.
