For credit, what do you refer to yourself as?

So I'm doing a lot of collaborations with photographers who are attempting to have their works published and they want to give me credit for my work on the images since it was a trade situation.

I'm reluctant to list "Retouching by [me]" with all the negative connotations of how retouching is used in modern advertising. Nor do I think it's appropriate to list myself side by side with the photographer without indicating my role - "John J.Smth/John Doe Imaging" seems like we collaborated fully on the piece.

"Post-processing by" sounds weird and technical. "Image styling by" sounds a bit vague too. Just "styling" sounds like I did hair and makeup. "Image preparation by" sounds like I was responsible for putting things in a ZIP files and sending to the magazine.

Does anyone have any experience or suggestions?

I like photo editing. That doesn't overlap with individuals roles at the magazine itself, does it?

I must admit I like 'post processing by....' There's a group a flickr called Post Processing which I use, and to me it just sounds a regular term for retouching and other ps work.

It sounds neutral as for me. No possibility for bad feelings
