Make your visuals out
Photo retouching is used by
almost all professional photographers today. It adds that polished, well
finished look to enhance a shot that has so much more appeal than the
original. There is a very high chance that an image you see in a
magazine has had some retouching work done to it.
Other terms for photo
retouching are: image edit, photo edit, photo restore, photo enhance,
colour retouch, photo repair, photo correction, picture retouching,
image editing, digital manipulation, image enhancing. By using the power
of Adobe Photoshop there is very little you can't do to a photo or image

and even make a large nose look smaller. Hair colour and clothing can
also be adjusted. Body slimming, such as a tummy tuck or straightening a
rounded back or shoulders, is not impossible. Red eye can be removed,
and teeth can be straightened and whitened. Eyelashes can be extended,
and facial features can be enhanced. Skin tone and texture can be
improved, and make-up can even be added. A soft filter can even be
applied for a glamour look.
Editing product photos
by digital manipulation can create that "hero!" shot without the need
for re-shooting in an expensive studio. Adjust the lighting, eliminate
blemishes, set it on alternative backgrounds or with alternative
coloured livery. Many companies will use a photo editor to recreate
alternative styles of the product before it has gone into production to
visualise and help determine what the final product should be without
the need for numerous prototypes.
Products photos can also
be retouched to provide the ultimate publicity shot suitable for
