Editing choices are selectable at checkout. Included options are no edits, basic edits, other edits. We edit mostly all photos, unless you choose otherwise. Here are a few exceptions:
If it’s a professional photograph (like you’d upload when purchasing our Best Day Ever Collection, for example), we don’t usually touch it. Most of the time these photos are already edited by your professional photographer, and don't warrant any adjustments.
With your personal photos, however, (like you’d upload when purchasing the Classic or Showpiece Collections, as well as Yearbooks), we adjust things like white balance, color, tone, exposure, highlights, shadows, cropping, and other basic things to enhance your photos, if needed. Unless you specifically ask us not to edit your photos (by selecting that option at checkout), we automatically do these basic edits to enhance your photos when needed. While all your photos may not make the photobook (please see here for max photos and photo estimates), as a courtesy, all edited photos are returned to you via a link to the email address you provided when placing your order.
OTHER EDITS: We can do other edits as well, such as smoothing out a persons skin, removing minor blemishes, whitening teeth, and enhancing eye color. However, we do NOT do these type of edits unless you specifically ask us to (by selecting that option at checkout). We don’t mind doing these fixes at all, but we don’t think it’s right for us to alter any person unless we’re asked! Simply choose this option at checkout.
IF YOU WANT US NOT TO EDIT YOUR PHOTOS, OR DO BASIC AND/OR OTHER EDITS, SELECT THE OPTION AT CHECKOUT. ONCE A SELECTION HAS BEEN MADE, AND YOUR ORDER HAS BEEN PLACED, YOUR EDITING OPTIONS CANNOT BE CHANGED.
WHAT WE DO NOT EDIT: We don’t do any major edits, such as removing a person entirely, changing a background, removing glasses, making someone skinnier, or other major fixes, etc. We CAN do these, but due to the additional time involved, an additional fee would apply. Contact us for details, or to get a quote. Then you would purchase a custom listing. If you have questions about specific edits, please contact us prior to purchasing.
SEND US ALL YOUR PHOTOS: We don't have a limit on the amount of photos you can send us. We'll narrow them down on our own, and edit the ones we choose, up to the amount of photos we allow based on the number of pages in your photobook (see this page). If you have favorite images you definitely want to be included in the photobook, just let us know.
WHILE NOT EVERY EDITED PHOTO WILL MAKE YOUR PHOTOBOOK, YOU WILL RECEIVE ALL EDITED PHOTOS BACK: Via a link for you to download. This will arrive to the email address you provided upon checkout. Links are valid for one (1) month from the date they are sent. After that they are no longer available and deleted. Please download them within the one (1) month time frame. We will not re-upload them after they are deleted.
All editing is final and based on our discretion and unique artistic eye.
