Retoucher required for overflow work

Hi, we are after a few retouchers to help with overflow work. It does not matter where you are in the world. What matters is....

Your standard of work is very good.
You are reliable, and able to work to strict deadlines.
Easy to contact.

If you are interested, let me know. I will send a image to you, together with a brief.

You will then return finished work, together with an email containing, the amount of hours you spent on the job, and the price you would charge for that job.

We will then look at all work submitted. We will look for,
Quality, time taken and artistic input.

Please send your email address to me at (removed)
I can then send test image and brief.

Good luck.

Jeff Brown - Partner, FTP Creative Ltd.London UK.

Wow! What a response.... If you have not recieved the file yey, please let me know, I can re send.

There has been so many responses, it is hard to keep up.

Re: Retoucher required for overflow work

OK guys..... Due to the overwhelming amount of people that have replied to this thread, and due to quite a lot of totally unsuitable images being returned.
I have to put a deadline on this. No more tests will be accepted after noon (GMT) tomorrow (wednesday).
Sorry I have to do this, but I have not got the time to go through any more. If I do find a suitable candidate, I will reply to them.

One tip guys... PLEASE PLEASE! lay off the blur filter and the healing brush! I need a retoucher NOT a smudger!!

The work I get is all very high profile, it has to be right. But if anyone does the job for me, they will see their work in some very high places.

Jeff

Re: Retoucher required for overflow work

Well I had hopes, not high, but still hopes.
If it's possible, would you be willing to put the picture you chose on here? No need to list the name of the person to save their PM box. Just so those of us who are looking to better our abilities can have an idea what retouchers are looking for and what we may have done wrong or not good enough. I know I am extremely curious.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity!

Re: Retoucher required for overflow work

I would appreciate that too Jeff Could we start another thread on the image for learning? Discussing this in the classifieds forum just feels wrong to me. I'm not asking that you critique us (I think that would be great if you did but I'm sure you have more important things on your plate) but since you had such an overwhelming response it could be a popular thread and maybe I could figure out what to do with the legs. Good luck in finding someone.

Re: Retoucher required for overflow work

Just an update....

Have about 21 retouched images back, thanks. I think there is another 20 or so due back tomorrow.

Just like to say thank you to all that have put time into this exercise.

Re: Retoucher required for overflow work

Why do so many of you just blur skin tones? Why do so many use the healing tool, why do some of you convert to CMYK? And why do some totally change the colour?

As one of my old bosses back in the eighties would have said (whilst clutching his head)... "Sometimes, I just despair"
