    I'm working on a brochure for a professional group. They want to include a group photo of five of the employees, but have been unable to get them together to take a picture, and so requested that I use this picture from a social event. However - the woman on the right of the picture feels she looks too bare for a professional brochure.

    Any suggestions of what I could do to cover her up? Feel free to edit. Thanks!

    ETA: The final image will be a monotone, and much smaller than it appears here - not sure what the final dimensions will be exactly, but small, so cropping is plenty fine ;)

    I'd definitely work for a reshoot. They all aren't looking at the camera, and the skin tones are all wonky in this shot. Not to mention their various stages of dress...

    I can make them all looking at the camera...and I have created these 3 pictures. I dunno if you'll like them but I kinda gave it a shot. I just clipped the shirt off of the second lady to the left and adjusted it to her body. *shrugs* I dont know anything about fashion.

    If you want me to put something else on her or change skin tones I can do that also.

    anyways here are the links

    Thanks, Nurd!

    Unfortunately they're not giving me the option of a reshoot. Nurd, I think one of your edits just may work - after converting the image to a monotone and shrinking it to fit in the brochure, it's pretty convincing. Not a great photo, no question, but I think they'll be happy with it.

    It's for a brochure to promote professional services.... hmmmmm.....

    This photo will refect an "image" .... hoping for more business, I presume.

    hmmmm..... Not to metion the artwork should cost more than additonal photography. Robert and Alex are right. I'd advise them to take the time for a new photo and not spend more money on one that could hurt their image.
