This is the Ultimate Retouching course, which will create a retoucher out of you in no time! If you're reading this, then you share our passion for photography and retouching, so let's make it happen!
Why did we make this course? We wanted to make a diﬀerence to the retouching community and so embarked on a year long journey. It has all you need to know in order to become a better retoucher. Up to now, there wasn't a retouching course created by a true post-production studio.
How does the course work? Each chapter is dedicated to certain aspect of retouching, from technical, through creative to business. If you feel you don't need to learn all of it, then feel free to skip parts. You can always come back to them later. Our system is designed in a modular way, so you can adapt it to your working conditions and requirements.
