Retoucher (Photography)

A photographic retoucher will digitally tweak and fine-tune a photographer’s raw image files until they are pixel-perfect, whether that’s correcting colours, extending a background or reworking shapes within an image. Often with a solid training in photography or a visual arts background, a retoucher will possess a sharp eye for colour, tone and minute details.
