Retoucher Job Description

Digital media has opened many opportunities for people worldwide. Taking and posting photographs is as much a craze as is reviving old photographs. All this is possible only because of the work of retouchers who spend countless hours retouching images so that they suit the fancy of customers.

Retouchers make use of popular software such as Photoshop to help them work. They are usually trained on the job although many people opt to take classes in handling retouching jobs. While there are many easy-to-use software that even a layman can use to retouch images, retouchers know their work inside out which is why many people prefer to have their photographs revived or retouched by professionals.
