“My first contact with Lakewood followed my internet search for a company or individual capable of editing a photo from a recent special birthday dinner, where one guest had not noticed the dress code until it was too late. He felt terrible – but I was convinced someone out there could work some magic. The team at Lakewood reacted very quickly and professionally – and were able to deliver exactly the photo I had hoped for within 48 hours of my original email. They actually completed the work over the bank holiday weekend – and the smile on our friend’s face, and ours, was priceless!”

How much do you charge per hour?

Our hourly rate is £60 for photo editing and manipulation. It is often cheaper to book work in at a fixed rate where we can cap the costs for you.

What do I need to provide?

We always require the RAW file if you have access to it. If not the original image from the camera with no compression or resizing. We can provide you with an upload area if the image is too large for an email. We will also need all accompanying assets needed to complete the work.

How much can I expect to pay?

Without seeing the image and the work required it is impossible to give a set price for all work. Usually, simple retouching takes 15-20 minutes per image and heavier manipulations such as removing large objects or people from an image can take over 2 hours. We bill to the second if charged hourly, we never round-up costs for some small jobs our hourly rates can be cheaper. Minimum cost is usually £30-£60.

What format can we provide final artwork in?

Final artwork can be provided in almost all formats, we always conduct non-destructive work so you will also have the original sent back. We don’t often arrange print unless the project is large.
