Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • How to start working with you? Describe the workflow, please.»

    Just contact me via e-mail. Describe your project, show the images (mid-size previews or the originals), add some references (examples of the result you need). We discuss the task, the budget and the deadlines, you send a 50% prepayment and I start my work. Then I show the final result (with a watermark), you pay the remaining amount and get the file(s). I provide maximum quality JPEGs or 8 bit TIFFs.

  • What can you do in Photoshop?»

    My focus is beauty retouching – skin clean up, make up enhancement, hair retouch, color correction, etc. Hopefully, my portfolio speaks for itself, check the before-after.

  • How much does it cost? What are your rates?»

    I need to see the images first to make an accurate quote (I charge per image or per project).

    There are several factors to consider: the image size, the overall quality (light, model’s skin, make up, etc.), the number of images and the deadline. Send the previews and get the quote!

  • How can I pay? Do you accept Paypal?»

    PaysendMoneyGram. Paypal doesn’t work in my country, unfortunatelly.

  • Do you have any special rules and principles of work?»

    Yes, I do. Here they are:

    1. I don’t do free tests – time is money:) I already have a portfolio which represents my skills. If you would like to “test” me, just be ready to send a prepayment.

    2. I don’t edit amateurish images of poor quality and the images I don’t like. Work inspiration is important.

    3. I don’t edit weddings, families, newborn, food, jewelry or anything else you don’t see in my portfolio. Though I may be interested in high-end product photography retouching and creating composites.

    I DO work with people interested in high-end quality editing. You are WELCOME! :)

    NOTE: I can only accept photos from photographers, as they are the copyright holders of the images. If you are a model, a makeup artist, a hairstylist, or a wardrobe stylist interested in my services, please ask your photographer to contact me.

  • Do you retouch lookbooks and catalogues?»

    Yes, if you have a decent budget and the deadlines are not very tight, I’m willing to work.

  • Do you do e-commerce retouching (clipping path)?»

    Technically I can do this very precisely, but it’s usually a low-paying job which I’m not interested in.

  • Can you change the background, remove or add objects/people?»

    Yes, I can. It’s called composite work.

  • Do you provide *.psd with layers?»

    Well, it’s negotiable. It makes sense only if it’s a composite work, which may need further corrections.

  • Do you teach retouching/have any tutorials?»

    Not yet, but I’m planning to start in the near future. Follow my instagram not to miss this moment:)
