Not all photographers have the experience to process their images themselves or to edit them to the best possible standards. Some may hand over your images unedited and charge extra for retouching.

I offer image editing and retouching services. Can edit and prepare photographs for print or for the web using Adobe Photoshop, always paying attention to detail to ensure the best results. I retouch responsibly and aim for simple, clean, natural-looking images. Able to process images in various formats, including JPEG, RAW, TIFF, GIF and PNG files. Prices vary depending on your project's needs and volume of images.

Feel free to contact me for more information.

Portrait Retouching & Body Sculpting

Retouching is more advanced than image editing. Retouching techniques are a lot more complex and require expertise, professional photo-editing software and high-end computer equipment. Basic retouching can take around 15 minutes to work on an image, whereas extensive retouching involves intense processing and can take from 30 minutes to an hour per image.

Exposure Correction

The terms editing and retouching are very often used in the photography world to describe the process of digital photo manipulation. Even though they can be used synonymously, along with other terms such as enhancing, post-processing or post-production, they mean different things.

Image editing generally refers to simple photo-editing techniques. These techniques are fairly quick and easy to execute such as tonal and color correction or cropping. Editing a photograph can only take a few minutes. This may not sound like a lot, but when dealing with a high volume of images it can translate to many hours of work. Overall, image editing enhances and brings more life to the original images.

Image editing techniques include:

Here are some examples of photographs that I have edited:

The possibilities of digital

photo manipulation are endless.

Photo manipulation is almost as old as photography itself. The practice dates back to the second half of the 19th century, only a few decades after the first photographic processes were introduced between the 1830s and 1840s. Before the evolution of photography into the digital realm, photographers and retouching specialists would alter traditional photographic prints and negatives by hand, using various tools and complicated techniques which required a high level of expertise, time and money. The 1990s brought the shift from analog to digital photography with the introduction of the first consumer digital cameras and the release of Adobe Photoshop, an advanced imaging software for adjusting and manipulating digital image files. Nowadays, there are numerous professional digital photo-editing software available, but also mobile applications which are easy for everyone to use and edit photographs. The possibilities of digital photo manipulation are endless.
