The supplied photo is in Photoshop format. Our intention is to print your deliverable using a laser printer and frame it afterwards. No resizing is needed. It still has some color, but you can discard this information if you need to do so.
Your main target should be to focus the photo and soften any scratchy look (current or future) because of filter(s) applied. To achieve this, you may deliver the photo with an artistic drawing look, if necessary. Deliverable is to have the Photoshop 8.0 format. (continues below)
This photo has already had some retouching made and you should finish the lips, right ear, hair and dress: The lips on the subject left side are Ok and you should finish the right side; the right ear looks too big and you should reduce it somehow, even if it means to alter the subjects original appearance; the hair contour is Ok at the left lower side (it has been focused) and you should do the same with the rest of the contour; the dress should definitively have more focus, even if changes have to be significant.
Please do not bid if you haven’t made this kind of job before. Bid will be awarded by Mon 14th. If you can include some small retouched sample of a particular area, please do. Samples of some past work with "before"? and "after" files are also fine.
