RETOUCHING
RETOUCHING is the process of correcting,
improving or altering artwork, particularly
photographs. It used to be done by means
of an airbrush or by hand - using a pencil,
crayon, paintbrush - in order to remove
imperfections or add new qualities to the
work. The commercial artist who
specialized in this process was known as a
retoucher.
Today, with software such as
Photoshop, everybody has suddenly
become a retoucher
.
