When choosing the best services for improving images, you need to pay attention to such aspects as the overall quality, turnaround time, samples, the cost of services, discounts, customer support, etc.

Turnaround Time: Five or six business days

Pros:

Cons:

           User-friendly website

           Cooperates with commercial entities

           They need much time to complete the order

           Lack of specific tools

           No info about discounts

 

 When it comes to professional photo enhancement in the real-estate or architecture field, Phixer is good. You can find some samples in their Portfolio section. They are arranged in an album, which might cause some inconvenience.

We weren’t satisfied with the overall result. Retouchers did not improve the white balance greatly, they didn’t manage to adjust the lighting and soften the shadows. While the experts changed the background of the image, they did not do it well. The photo looks very unnatural.

Pricing: $199 per monthly subscription

Turnaround Time: Six or seven business days

Pros:

·         Discounts for premium users

·         Advanced editing

·         You can use your presets

·         Price lists are difficult to use

 

Evolve Edits is a well-known service that focuses on wedding photos editing. Users can choose between five levels of services, including Color Correction, Deluxe Edits, Premium Edits, Retouching and Signature Edits.

We weren’t satisfied with the result, especially after comparing it with the one delivered by FixThePhoto. The quality of retouching and photo correction is low. Additionally, their price lists are not clear.
