We speak English. Although our premises looks like a mess of cables and large screens in every corner, we prefer human relations.

A live chat function is available under the Contact item on the main page: do not hesitate to use it.
We want to keep this site as basic and user friendly as possible. We just hate to be lost with confusing interfaces. No asterisks, add-ons, hidden details, tariff supplements and other little unpleasant surprises that are common practice everywhere.
You've got a unique contact : Eve. She supervises all your request and listen to your particular wishes. And this is no small job, believe us! Some huge projects we have undertaken had to be split between 100 retouchers to be done on time.
We are open 365 days a year.
That fairly simple because we sell all in all only 3 services.
PHOTO+. When you give us your photos and ask for PHOTO+, there are no specific instructions to give us. Your photos will be analyzed by our Retouchers, and improved in terms of contrast, light, colors, red eye removal, teeth whitening, major skin imperfections elimination and deletion of any visual distractions in order to glamourize your photos. It’s our budget base product, perfectly suited for example for your holidays or special event photos. It’s a kind of introduction to the world of photo retouching. We do not make any structural changes on your photos with this service.
RETOUCHE. This service is about a physical change of some parts of your photos. This may include cut-out, to add or remove some elements. This service is usually required for a professional use of your photos, or for photos you may wish to print or enlarge. The price structure is low and degressive.
creatALL. This very special service keep busy a small part of our team, since it is all about high end creation work, logo design and creation for example. Tariff is on request and depends on the amount of work requested.
For us, that what matters most. We never drop a subject if you are not happy, and never if the problem comes from us.
The customer must however understand that any retouche will not change a poor or misconceived photo into a good photo.
Moreover, a part of the job is often purely subjective, that is the challenge and the interest of the photo retouche. Please be as precise as possible in your requests for RETOUCHE, and help us by not writing « I don't like that », which has little meaning for our retouchers teams.
Simple and easy.
