You know the portrait studio that is usually in the front of the store? Does anyone know if they offer retouching services? Thanks!

They don't even bag your grocery now days either as they are having you check out your own purchases and bagging them while one employee watches four of the self service check out counters.

Plus would you want walmart to retouch your photos???

You could pick up the phone, call them, and ask. Sure beats getting ripped a new one for openly admitting, in front of a bunch of photo nerds and/or high priced holier-than-though professionals, to considering them.

ofcourse not.. and trust me you wouldn't want them to... CDi was a little less than gracious but, you do get what you pay for.. I would suggest looking for a local photographer to do your photos.. POTN is a great place to start.. or, find a better studio but the retail places don't do much of anything.. I do believe 'Kiddy Candids' at my mall will do sepia or black and white for an extra charge but that's as far as they'll go...

crap work is cheap.

I had some portraits done at Walmart a few years ago before I knew better. Most of the shots where out of focus and composure was really bad.

Does that mean that you/they were really agitated and/or paranoid...or is that a new slang word for composition + exposure? :lol:

Trust me, I know how it is (well, not the kid part, but the lack of sleep part). Anyway...just giving you a hard time. I figure a guy with a flaming duck avatar can take some ribbing. ;)

the flaming ducky is pure art. thanks for making fun of the whole duck thing, how did that get started anyway? I have been unable to shoot a picture of a duck since logging on here for the first time a year ago.
