We know how you look like in the eyes of the creative people who know for sure, what beauty is, and we know serving it to you and to this world. In the end, this demonstration shows clearly why we edit, retouch and change anything in ourselves and pictures at all, and especially headshot retouching. Your portrait will be eye-catching and pretty.
Headshot retouching is one of the portrait retouching kinds of editing. These days it becomes much more popular than before, even in comparison with the old photo restoration services. As you may or may not know, all actors, models and other public persons need headshot retouching, sometimes desperately. People are retouching headshots as this is a media sphere, an area where enhancement of a certain picture provokes a demanded response in the audience. Look is another way of communication and visualizing beautiful smart people is highly important for their reputation. People want to see, who is telling them to buy some product or service, to watch certain programs on TV, and so on. For actors, models, singers and musicians looking good, maintaining their image is one of the first priorities, because they are adored and loved for their look as well. Even if they are beginners, glamour magazines and self analysis tells them they always need more than they have, and thus they find themselves in the need of the special people who are retouching headshots for them. It is often a duty of a manager to promote newcomers and to explain to them how these fashion and business industries work.
It is a must for the artists to own a portfolio, and it has to be good as the portfolio and reputation are criteria by which people decide whether to hire this person or not. There is no a single day in the new public person’s life where he or she does not send his or her pictures to the directors, casting managers, etc. They hope to get a well-paid role that can make them more popular, bring them prospect. And to achieve that, they need to look good and to please the people above whose standards are usually very high. And of course, each play, movie or shooting has its own specifics, so when an actor or actress steps in, one has to make sure they fit in this role, that they can live in it and make this a true piece of art of cinema, photography, and so on. The character of the artist itself can be similar to the hero’s and this is good for the result, though, is artist’s character differs very much and yet the role looks naturally, we can speak about talent, experience, and about the bright future of this person. No one denies it is a hard, long way, so turning to headshot retouching will make things much easier. Charisma, self-confidence – everything is important if you want either to be famous or to stay that way. Of course, when the hero is written for a very specific appearance, it is harder to compete for it. Step closer to the mirror. Do you look like a romantic type? Or a tough one? Or any other type? It has to be seen clearly on your shots and snaps and this is the main reason why you have to be accurate while retouching headshots and you must not alter any face feature, though show your attractiveness. In this way, casting manager will be able to find a great part for you, which can later help you achieve even more.
The basics of the headshot retouching
The modeling sphere is also very demanding when we are talking about the retouch. People base whole model agencies on the snaps and shots and without photography their existence will be put into question. Beauty know has different duties. Not only has she amaze everyone who sees it, but it also has to be competitive and attract you more than other ones. And this is why many famous people turn first to professional photo shooters and then – to the excellent retouchers. Commercial image editing is hard and especially if it is editing of a person, not an object. Retouching headshots means doing one’s best in order to provide an excellent, outstanding portfolio and give a model a wide choice of great pictures to demonstrate in high end quality. If we compare the difficulty level with such kind of post processing as jewelry retouching services, we will see, that it is two times more difficult.
Then, we cannot leave out the fact, that outsource photo retouching is used frequently enough in the editing of the portrait pictures. People engaged in music, in fashion, and in other jobs – all of them are in the high need of creativity and of being productive in such a competitive area as fashion business. This is the main reason why wealthy people often spend big sums of money on their photo sessions with professional photographers, and later – on the post processing and removal of any unwanted details as wrinkles or pimples. So photo shooters and specialists in the digital photography edition and enhancement are connected closely to the business in the photography. Though there are many people who like doing both photos and photoshop, the main part of photo shooters cannot provide post production of high quality or just prefer not to spend their time doing it. And in such situations, there cannot be a commercial portrait edition as the abilities or priorities of shooters lie in the choosing the best location for the process and using their great skills and expensive cameras. Digital retouch and companies who provide them, like FixThePhoto, are the best colleagues and assistants for photographers, as our services are of the best quality on the market, we can do it quickly, and our prices are nice for everyone, not only for the richest.

Digital edition will be your excellent choice if you just do not like your skin and need fixing or removing your acnes, because this is what makeup digital retouching is for, when we are talking about headshots. We give you below a more detailed description of the main steps in the business portraiture retouch that our team offers.
Correction of the colors
Any photo at all needs this type of editing, especially portraits, headshots, family photos. Post processing services for photographers cannot be done properly without the color correction.

Accessory colors are also edited so they would either underline or be contrast to the main one. Our employees and managers are all good in the coloristic, so you can rely on us freely in the question of the color edition.
Retouch of the model’s skin
There are many ways to enhance a portrait or a headshot. Of course, the removal of all possible drawbacks of the skin is the first thing that comes to mind. It is a pretty simple task as those drawbacks are usually temporal and they do not change model’s traits – they are acne and blemishes. There are many young girls that turn to us and ask us to remove their pimples along with the drawbacks, because they want to become models. Though, if the client does not tell us to remove them, we usually just leave them because they are part of you and they cannot spoil anything. Our goal is to make you look like you in your everyday life, but to concentrate on your advantages and help you look better. And this composes the main difference between retouching headshots and working on the portrait retouching. Being natural is as essential for models as being seen with makeup in the fashionable clothes. If you give as your baby’s portrait, we will usually make its skin more smooth and correct colors as well.
Removal of the wrinkles
This type of editing should always be carried out carefully. If you look actually younger or older, it is wrinkles who help everybody identify the age you look like. There are of course many cases, when a person with wrinkles looks like his or her biological age, but it is individual for every one and one should make sure that he or she does not alter the appearance too much to confuse people, because it is the impression you make that is determinative for the decision to give or not to give you the job.
Whitening of the teeth

Smile is often the key to the successful communication and it is a great part of any person’s charm. They also often stick in other people’s minds and remind them of you.
