LAS VEGAS--PicWash, a Web site that offers to retouch photos for $7 and up, has plans to offer premium services in coming months.

Currently, PicWash's staff of 30 retouches photos--including those stored on PhotoBucket and MySpace--to clean up acne, remove wrinkles, reduce red-eye, and whiten teeth. It costs $7, or $10 if you attach a note requesting specific fixes, said founder Daniel Ciraldo (who notes on his biography that he's the son of "renowned Miami-based dermatologist Dr. Loretta Ciraldo").

Coming later--probably March--will be a variety of premium services that will cost up to $30, Ciraldo said here at Photo Marketing Association trade show.

Among those new options: getting rid of braces, getting rid of double chins, and slimming bodies down. Of this latter category, Ciraldo hopes people will use the service as "slimspiration"--giving themselves a vision of what they could become if they lost some pounds.

The company promises a 48-hour turnaround for its current services.
