What's the Difference Between “Editing”, “Retouching” and “High Quality Retouching”?

Updated: Nov 19, 2023

You might noticed in our wedding packages we offer "RAW", "retouching" and "High Quality Retouching". For family sessions we mostly offer "Editing " or few "High Quality Retouching".

Since our unedited images are in great quality, some of our clients are just happy with the unedited images. Even though, we still highly recommend to edit or retouch your photos.

In this blog , I will explain the difference between “editing”, “retouching” and “High Quality Retouching”.

“Editing”: works on basic and enhance color and lighting, cropping pictures, adjusting temperatures, etc.


“Retouching”: the improvement of the overall look of an image, based on “editing”, It basically includes one or two corrections and adjustments for a picture, such as Light adjustment, Teeth whitening , Eliminating stray hairs , removing small blemishes. When clients want some more quality than basic image editing, but not as fantastic as advanced level, it’s called retouching.

Most of our wedding packages includes 150 to 500 retouched photos.
