What is photo retouching?
Photo retouching is also often referred to as image retouching, Photoshop retouching, airbrushing or Photoshopping. Essentially, photo retouching is when you manipulate an image to make it look cleaner and more refined.
Dust, spot and scratch removal: A photoshoot that goes without hiccups is rare, and sometimes those mishaps damage products or props in a staged shot. If you have scratches, dents or other imperfections on your photo, you can it over to use for retouching to make those objects look perfectly new again. Likewise, if there are dust particles or other distracting spots in your shot, photo retouching can help you remove it for a cleaner overall shot.
Wrinkles on clothing: Every clothing retailer knows the challenge of wrinkles. And no matter how many irons and steamers you have on hand, there are always those few pesky wrinkles that sneak into a shot. Photo retouching can remove any wrinkles from clothing so your shots look perfect, no matter how much your models have to move.
Beauty airbrushing: Beauty airbrushing is commonly used in fashion photography. This is where the natural beauty of the model(s) in the photo are enhanced with some Photoshop retouching. You can smooth the skin, whiten teeth, change eye and hair color, enhance the background and surroundings, and more.
Camera reflection removal: Blemish retouching is used on live models, but it can also be used on inanimate objects in your photo. On many photos, there are small scratches, dust floating, weird light spots or other minor flaws of the image. These “blemishes” can be removed through image retouching.
