I'm finishing up a little PP work on some pictures I took at my cousins wedding. I didn't get paid to do this, I just always take tons of pictures at any family event and send them out to everybody. Here lies my question though.
Obviously people have acne and I always remove that as best as I can from the images because nobody wants to look back on the pictures and think "my face was a disaster that day!" However; I'm wondering if I'm supposed to remove the moles and/or freckles on peoples faces and chest, or if people know that they have moles and freckles and would be upset if they thought I took it out because I thought it was unsightly (ex. Cindy Crawford has her mole in all her pictures, I don't think she'd be happy if someone removed it with PP). If this was just a random group of people I didn't know, I would probably just remove them and send the pictures, but considering it's family I really don't want anyone to be upset.
Leave them! People will think you're criticizing their appearance if you remove them!
Take that stuff out! Nobody will notice they've been removed and the people will look better in the shots!
Yes, I'm aware I cut my moms head off, this is just a crop to get closer on my aunts really. My dad just had a few bumps on his forehead that aren't even noticeable when removed, all I'm concerned about is the 2 aunts in the middle and on the right.
