Retouching Assistant at Selfridges
Posted 5-02-2016, offered
KNOW THE ROLE
Working alongside and developing your skills with our Retouching Manager, you’ll be preparing imagery for the Selfridges website. And with a site that’s updated as frequently as ours that means dealing with a large number of images every day. Cutting-out, cropping, resizing, cleaning up and colour correcting are all part of the challenge. And because much of the site is fashion-based, there’s a particular emphasis on skin retouching. The sheer number of images involved means you’ll also need to run a tight ship when it comes to working to our retouching briefs.
KNOW WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
It could be that you come to us straight from a visual arts degree. Or that you’re looking to move on from your current role. Either way, you’ll need a good knowledge of Photoshop and some practical experience under your belt – particularly involving colour correction and clipping paths. A genuine interest in fashion is important, as is a broad understanding of online retail. But perhaps even more so are a strong work ethic and a sharp eye for detail – both with regards to the retouching itself and following our style guidelines.
