Project Description

We are looking for a skilled retoucher to help clean up and prepare bulk images for possible commercial sale. Since some images may have problematic exposure and/or color issues bidders should be very skilled at solving such issues and producing natural looking results.

This initial trial batch will be for 30 images, but if we like your work there is possibility for more.

We will consider professionals, students, serious hobbyists and photography buffs (provided your skills are good).

Key points:

- Images will be provided as uncompressed Canon RAW or TIFF image files.

- You will need to deliver the images as 8-Bit, uncompressed TIFFs saved at 100% quality.

- Most images are shot in a studio on a simple white or gray background

- All of our images depict people (mostly kids and teens)

- Typical subject matter: technology use, education, social issues, sports/exercise, beauty/style

- You agree we will retain full copyright to all retouched images.

- All transfers will be made by FTP

Must have items:

- A recent version of Photoshop (CS5 is preferred) or other high-quality editing tool

- A powerful computer able to handle image files up to 100 MB each!

- A fast internet connection (NO dialup or DSL!!)

Recommended items:

- The latest copy of Canon, Digital Photo Professional (DPP) for working natively with Canon RAW images.

Services to perform (if needed):

- white balance

- brightness/contrast correction

- color correct/enhancement

- dodging/burning

- blemish removal

- tattoo removal

- cuts/bruise removal

- body piercings/jewelry (except ears)

- eye enhancement (whitening)

- lip repair

- teeth whitening

- cleanup image (remove spots)

- trademark/copyrighted item removal

- convert surrounding background to pure white (if shot on white background)

- other items (if directed)

The retouched images should be of quality suitable for commercial sale or microstock use. Keep in mind we are looking for a very NATURAL look NOT airbrushed Photoshop glamour!

Services WE DO NOT want performed:

- Image resizing or cropping

- Sharpening of any kind

- Body distortions/manipulations

- Usage of any noise filter

Preferred Experience (the following experience is considered a plus):

- Retouching images for stock or microstock sale

- Retouching images of kids and teens

- Retouching images isolated on a white background

- Retouching images with problematic lighting, exposure and color

2 - A link to your FULL-SIZE, retouched version of our "Test Image" (Required!)
