Digital Retouch Artists
Once you application is received, you will then be sent a series of images to be retouched. These images range from basic retouching, to much more difficult images involving some bruising, skin discoloration, etc. The final work that you submit back to us will be evaluated.
Skills Criteria & Evaluation Process
Requirements: Advanced Photoshop ability. Other retouching programs may be used, but Photoshop is mandatory for the advanced level of retouching often needed for our services.
Once your application has been received, it will be evaluated by the NILMDTS DRA Application Review Team. This Team consists of experienced Digital Retouch Artists who will score your application. An application must score at least 28 out of 40 points to be considered for approval. We use a 0-10 scoring system (0 is lowest and 10 is highest).
All DRA applications will be reviewed on the following criteria:
- Advanced ability to repair skin flaws (torn skin, blistering)
- Advanced ability to even out skin tone (bruising, discoloration)
- Black & White or Sepia conversion skills (visually appealing with good contrast range with appropriate mid-tones)
- Advanced skill using multiple filters and targeted adjustments (mastery in using multiple layers, layer blends, layer masks, color modes)
The application review process may take up to four weeks depending on the current volume (although it is sometimes longer during the busy Trade Show season).
Prepare Your Application
Due to the nature, sensitivity, and complexity of this work, many factors exist in which most digital retouch artists wouldn’t consider necessary to fill this role. View this application in the same manner you would for a professional retouching position.
