The final part in the The Standard Package Trilogy, a single photograph was submitted to 18 different online re-touchers with the request please could you do a general retouch/make over.  The instructions are short, I always accept the first image they send back and the cost of the retouch is low between $3 – $30. They know that I am the photographer but not necessarily the model or an artist. Some of the re-touchers refused the work as they considered it to be ‘not a proper portrait’ (head & shoulders) and one returned three versions.

The 14 final images are presented on a digital picture frame as a looped slide show (Duration 1:24) but could also be shown on a flat screen or projection.
