It might not be so bad if the company offered a ceramic doll; but for just a photo image...
One could just as well use photoshop and get the same results. )-|

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the people who Photoshop children into scary doll creatures
and I did not speak out
because I did not Photoshop children into scary doll creatures.
Then they came for me
and I couldn`t move because my face was a freakish abomination nullifying the existence of any possible god.

OMG!!! I can make better retouches, and they charge $60 per pic! They must be totally crazy. They are total noobs, even their website is horribly made. I wouldn`t pay $5 for a job that bad. Some of them look OKAY, but okay for a noob, not for a pro who charge $60 like he`s some sort of a MS employee!

I should start a similar business, charging $10, but making actual quality retouches, taking more than 5 minutes per photo.

This is pretty disgusting. I mean, I draw eyes that look better than that (realer!) and is that site for girls in modeling competitions? Seems like something the pageant mom who uses her child for fame or projects her wants on the kid would do. Those girls were perfectly fine the way they were. Won`t thinking they need a `retouch` make their self-esteem sink.

Not that any little girl in their right mind should want to look like those examples. Dolls are prettier.

I`ve worked in photography, and been forced to take "Pagent" pictures. And let me tell you, those pagent moms are absolutly out of their minds. One mom actually told me that if her daughter does not win the pagent, then she was not going to take her to Disney World. She said this right in front of her 7 year old girl. How freakin` crazy!

It`s hardly "touching-up" a photograph. It`s "How to turn your child into a barbie doll with glass eyes". No wonder some children grow up insecure with their look if their parents think the only way to make them pretty is to have their photographs changed! Personally, I think all of the children were cuter in the original photos, and there`s no way I`d want to change them into creepy-looking dolls.

This doesn`t even get a vote cos it`s too scary.

No, no, no, no! They turned a beautiful young girl into a crazy, I`mma-kill-you-in-your-sleep, creepy doll! These people need to get some photoshop skills and learn proper shadowing. The eyes are FLAT. WHY? It`s like they took elderly ladies who collect porcelain dolls and showed them some the basic photoshop tools and said "Here you go, now get to work!"
What`s worse is the parents who actually think it`s pretty.
