They do burn through retouchers there it seems. They always have ads. I think it's because they don't pay enough to keep the really good ones.

From what I understand, they are trying to add new retouchers, but have been really picky.

Ok, good. It just seems that they have had ads for the past 2-3 years is all. Even in NY it's hard to staff retouchers though so I understand.

"In-depth understanding of all technical aspects of retouching including color theory, color management and practical experience with US and European print production, RGB and CMYK color spaces is a must."

That's not a retoucher, per se, it's a manger on the technical side.

And, yeah, they advertise a lot. Why the turnover?

I disagree. A senior retoucher needs those skills and more.

Re: Two Retouching jobs in NYC

Euro is based on Version 1 of the Approval colors. Tend to be a little more yellow than the US. If I got that right.
Otherwise I treat it just like US and making sure the UCR is right.
