I am a photographer that used to be a web designer and somewhere along the way became a graphic artist. I am not the World's greatest, which is why my rate for retouching and other image editing work is low. I don't suck compared to most of those you'll find here on MM, so my work is a good value.
My work starts at $5 per image, which is about as low as you'll find on MM.
Got a photo that needs to be brighter in one part, but not in another? Need to be separated from the background in one of your favorite shots? Need to remove a few spots or some wild hair? Got a bulge in the wrong place? How about a thick arm or shoulder? I can probably fix it. (and yes, of course I can fix blemishes)
I'm no Pascal Dangin, but then neither is anyone else on MM. I can help improve your images, and I offer a very good value. Try me. You'll see.
I can probably edit your photos in half the time you can, and the finished product will most likely be better. (For those of you who are good with retouching in Photoshop or GIMP that statement obviously doesn't apply to you!) Why not pay a little to save a lot? (a lot of time and frustration) . . . and when your photos are finished you'll have better photos to show people and book more paid work.
My rates are low (and negotiable). Why not give it a try, and see how much improvement you can have in your photos? Ask your photographer if you're worried they don't want you to edit your photos. Often photographers like to see what retouchers can do with their photos. Just make sure you let the photographer know that you're planning to add the retoucher's name in the credits section below the photo. They like that you do this, because often photographers don't want people to get a misconception that they do work any way except for the way they deliver their photos.

I have been specializing in "realistic edits" over the past few years, because I have wanted my photos to look untouched and "totally real" . . . something many photo retouchers don't seem to do.
Magazine layouts, Yellow Pages advertisements, and brochure designs published. I've designed lot of fliers too. I'm not bad with comp. cards either. Let's make your comp card sizzle!
I was a free-lance Web designer for a few years, which is where I learned most of my Photoshop skills (resizing, compression, using layers, adjusting exposure, contrast, color, sharpness, typesetting, drawing, erasing, selecting, warping, rotation, feathering, etc.), before I started to get into heavy retouching and image manipulation for advertising. Now, since I'm a photographer too, I do the majority of my own photo fixes and manipulation.
