Hi Adam are you available?

Expert:  SpecialistMichael replied 2 years ago.
Adam are you looking for instruction on the basics of photo editing? Or are you looking for someone to edit them slightly for you?

Any information on them is appreciated.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes I'm here. i'm looking for someone to edit them for me so they look professional. thankz
Expert:  SpecialistMichael replied 2 years ago.
Well if you are up for it there isn't really a photography section per se but I am versed in digital photography and assisting other JustAnswer customers with their questions as well as post processing. If you would like I would be happy to give them a shot, they will take some time though trying different things.

If this appeals to you, you can upload them to http://imageshack.us/ copy the links back into your reply and I can work with them then re-upload to you for viewing.

What I would need you do is just let me know what you are looking for as far as the improvement of the of the photos so I know what types of changes I should be working for.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
OK great. Thank you for your time. I'll proceed to upload the photos in the meantime can you tell me how long it will take.

I'm not 100% sure what improvements I'm looking for. I'm open to suggestions and happy with any feedback. Thank you!
Expert:  SpecialistMichael replied 2 years ago.
Well it depends on how long each photo would take trying different methods and progressions. It will also depend on the quality of the photos as well as its much slower and harder with pictures of less quality, or blurry or noisy photos.

I have had great edits which have taken 10 minutes, but also great edits that have needed a few hours. Do you need them by a certain time?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Not really but it would be nice if I could receive them as soon as each one is complete.

I'm uploading the pictures as we speak.

Thankz!¬

I just want them to look more professional so I look even better in the photos ;)
Expert:  SpecialistMichael replied 2 years ago.
Hi Adam I just wanted to let you know I am done with the first batch of edits but the interface here is giving me issues and I am just trying to find another option to upload back to you. I will get back with you shortly with your edits.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Sure; Can you upload them within the next 2 hours or so; I'll be going away on a long vacation.

Thankz.
Expert:  SpecialistMichael replied 2 years ago.
Yes I can I am working on figuring a quick way to get them to you Smile
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
OK great.
Expert:  SpecialistMichael replied 2 years ago.
I filed them with the same file name, but 'e' or e with a number after them because I tried a few things.

The smaller pictures were tough to work with as there is not a lot of data or color information - the camera had a hard time in the dark places and therefore made the adjustment for light sensitivity which resulted in a grainy appearance.. I did what I could given the resolution and there was one picture where I intentionally made it a little "grainy" because there was motion blur in multiple directions. Let me know what you think

The 2 shots in front of the store I intentionally went for a rockstarish feel to them. The one with the little girl I just brought out some of the colors, eliminated the grayness and punched the background a bit so the photo was more consistent. The smallest one was very hard to work with only because it was so small and so grainy so I decided on a "less is more" look at just eliminated some distractions and sharpened them up a bit.
