Contest Brief

I need someone to do retouch for my company for a two week trial. The first is 2 images are a test run.

Our current retoucher is out of town and we need someone. We pay 60 cents per image and do not want to get behind best of luck! Some of the images require facial slimming and we pay a .90 cents per image that requires facial slimming.

Here are the steps we normally follow. I understand that photoshop has a million ways to do retouch but I have done this for 9 years and this is the way I want it done company wide. I am need of a consistent product. All retouches will be done using the method described below. Our average retouch times here in the lab are 3 minutes an image with the technique below. Larger families take 5 minutes.

We do anywhere from 60-130 retouches per every week. We will allow a 72 hours to complete all work. It is uploaded every Tuesday night by 6pm (CST) You will need to have them back by 6pm CST the following Thursday.




Here are the steps we expect to be followed on each retouch so that the quality from our Lab and from you are similar.

ALWAYS Duplicate layer (ctrl+J) first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Fly Aways

-- Use the Clone Stamp (S), set to Normal 100% percent opacity, 60% hardness to remove stray (fly away) hairs.



Teeth

-- Zoom in on teeth (200%). Magnetic Lasso(L) the teeth and Selective Color (Alt+I, A, S) to fix discoloration on teeth. Take the yellow out of the white channel and the neutral channel (if needed). (For pits and stains on teeth use the Dodge Tool (O), set to Midtones at 50%)



Eyes

-- Dodge tool (O) here to lighten the whites of the eyes. (If needed, shrink the brush and use it to take discolored spots out of eyes.)

-- Sponge tool (O) (notice the shortcut is the same as the dodge so be careful to change tools!) to saturate the colored part of the eyes. Use tool at 20%, make sure vibrance mode is on. Go over only one time!



Patch Shine, Under eyes

-- Patch Tool (J), then fade to 40% to remove shine on skin. Always use patches of the solid background.

-- Patch Tool, then fade to 50% to remove under eye circles on skin.



Face & Neck

-- Patch Tool (J) tool for retouch at 40% to eliminate any creases in the forehead or soften major wrinkles on face and neck (They will mostly be in the lighter areas of the skin).



Portraiture(filter by Imageomatic) (not necesarry for the first run of images but if you are selected as one of the retouch artists you will be required to get this software and we will be sure that you will be provided with more than enough work to pay for it.)

-- Portraiture (Ctrl+F will run last filter) on a new layer (ctrl+J) at Medium Smoothness. Fade the new layer to 50%



-- Use the Eraser (E) Brush at a low opacity to slightly revert portions of the image. This is to make the image look more realistic, especially older people. Erase portraiture over eyes 100%.



Tip: Always work left to right on every image.
