    I'm not sure I'm posting this in the proper place, so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong section.
    I'm a digital retoucher who primarily works for ad agencies. I'm trying to add some new images to my book and I was wondering if any of you would want to trade an image and I will provide you with the retouched version. All I ask in return is your permission to use the image in my book and on my upcoming web site (giving you photo credit for the image of course).
    If you're interested in trading please PM me.
    Thanks!

    Here are a couple samples:
    I'm also looking for product images as well.

    It would probably help if you posted samples of your work.

    Isn't postprocessing kinda one of those skills a photographer's supposed to have?

    Most all photographers have, at least, a general knowledge or a strong skill set of how to clean up an image and some have great talent at retouching. But, there are a good amount who don't have either the skill set or more importantly the time to sit and retouch something like skin (a task, that when done properly takes several hours).

    reg-- There are many companies that offer this service for photographers. It is especially great so you can shoot more (which is what ultimately brings you in money) and edit less. You just need to find a service that will edit to your tastes and budget. I have never used a service but have looked into it several times.
