Almost theatrical describes the vast difference in this enhanced photo of a state-of-the-art justice center. This is a beautiful building.
A modern, dramatic building, yet challenging shot with all the unnatural lighting on first floor. The upper shot and second floor needed to shine and attention. (above)

Patience was worth it on this joyful Pup job of 300 photos for digital retouch. As images were very small, with a Land Cam, and some 2 decades old. But happy results ensued.

Photo retouch and overall image stylizing is great fun — but not for everyone. Patience and focus are a must!

Digital photo retouching that is … fortunately, I feel the former as photo enhancement and retouch are my daily duties in web customization. As well, the process also helps create beautiful banners, or photo blending.
Photo retouch, not photo edit, involves tedious stylizing, repair, or enhancement of images. Whereas a photo edit involves choosing appropriate selections for projects prior to any stylizing.
Retouching (usually) utilizes photo edit software to crop, correct, adjust color, and brightness. Also sometimes more is necessary to bring a photo to its best presentation level. Often that level will target a particular industry, event, or discipline. A photo will then be manipulated, dramatized, or blended like my custom image work here.
Image retouch is required for various reasons whether general or eccentric. So in its simplest form, the process might merely add text and colorization. If more complex, objects or people are removed or added to eliminate distraction. One complex example might be slenderizing a body, or creating a mood is part of image retouch.
What’s best for Your Photos?
Your retoucher needs to know what your image(s) will be used for. For example, website or blog resolution far differs from print ad resolution (very high). So the image must be workable for your intended platform.
It is up to the client to choose the level of photo enhancement. However, input from the retoucher is very valuable here. The retouch artist will ensure the client understands a basic service as compared to a more complex photo service. Photo enhancement is pretty budget-friendly. But do expect a short consult to encourage positive communication and great image results.
