Speaking of CSI- I like when they zoom in on a license plate from an ATM security camera and the final image looks like it was shot with a Hassleblad. That's the kind of sharpening software I want!

...or when the orbiting satellite camera, from directly overhead, zooms in to rooftop level and then magically displays an image of the license plate square on.

I saw a picture recently of a guy with a huge cart loaded with beach toys, sunscreen lotions, and related junk, hanging out in the tropics selling stuff to tourists, and I thought "now, THAT'S the job for me!"

Re: "What do you do? Im a RETOUCHER. What is that?

Seems to me if the question comes up, one might say "I work in photography". Then for the obvious follow up question the answer could be "I specialize in Photoshop". Yeah . . . . I know, then to answer the next follow up question, you'd say "it's similiar to plastic surgery, but completely different". I figure at that point, the interrogation will cease due to confusion and everyone will think your a doctor.
