    We are revamping one of our business's websites.

    We organised a photographer to take pics of our products but now we can't use them- can't get into this topic though it's so absurd!

    We have some other pics taken by a different photographer and they are ok but my question is
    Can you make an ordinary photo look amazing these days through software? Who would I contact to get this done?

    We don't want to go back to the original photographers-
    We would rather move on with what we have - thanks

    You can do some basic editing in flickr and photobucket.

    There should be heaps of online companies that offer photoshop/lightroom editing services.

    How many pics do you need edited?

    Cheers

    Depends on what you want to get done. Be careful what you ask for on some websites, else your photo will soon be viral -http://twistedsifter.com/2015/05/can-someone-photoshop-the-eiffel-tower-under-my-finger/

    You can photoshop a completely new photograph if that's what's required, outsource it, keep it private, retain the rights and don't allow to be used for publicity.

    Fiver is good for minor tweaks, adjustments and formats and extras is where the cost builds up, great service for many micro jobs.

    Odesk is excellent along with Freelancer, look through existing jobs to finds contractors with the skillsets you require who have done similar and amazing things with the abovementioned tools, then you can post a job and invite direct.

    Basically anything is possible digitally.

    Adobe Lightroom is good and way easier to learn than photoshop.

    Agreed. It's easy to pick up the basics - plenty of youtube tutorials to help you out too.

    Might just be a little expensive if it's only going to be used as a once off though.

    Cheers

    Crop the photo to what you want, pull it into Instagram and try adjusting the light to make it brighter if dark or try out some of the filters on it.

    Good luck

    +1 You can get some good stuff done there - though I've only used it for amusement.
