Retouching credit

Hello everyone,

I saw there are some places online where photographers share photos to be retouched for practice or portfolio use but ask that you credit them if you use it and also send them the high res image, but don't specifiy that they will do the same, credit wise. Do retouchers get credit if their image is used by the photographer? I know you can't answer for particular situations, but since I see that credit for retouching isn't mentioned at all, I'm wondering if there's some unwritten industry rules? What do you do in such a situation (photographers), or what are your experiences with such situations?

Most photographers I know doesn't have problems with giving credits. Even if they don't show it everywhere with the images they usually don't hide the name of the retucher if asked.

I know there is also another opinion that retoucher is a photographer's little secret, but I think it's kind of outdated.

Anyway if you have concerns you should ask photographer about it.

I mean no offense.

As a photographer, if I am paying cash-money for the retouching... I don't give credit. If the retouching is done pro-bono, I will always give credit.

It's an exchange of benefits. If I get the retouching for free, I will give the retoucher some publicity. If they are getting paid... that is their compensation.

So, if you get compensated as photographer, you don't get credit either for your work? I mean, you got paid, right?

Often that is that is the case.

But if I don't get paid... I better get some credit

No credit. We get paid for what you DON'T see.

Correct .. However, most of my clients pay me because of me not because of the pictures I will take of them. Thus they are most likely to mention my name and not .. However, if they dont want to mention my name, no sweat - I got the money ...
