Most of us here who know a thing or two about photography are more than capable of doing our own retouching.

Your odd spelling/grammar isn’t professional.

You can’t take a crappy image and edit it to make it good.

I can understand there is such a thing as heavy retouching, but why use that crappy snapshot of the people in their living room with gaudy carpet as your example? There’s nothing professional about that image.

The acne removal is actually quite simple in most cases, even heavy acne. But your white balance interpretation skills are no good. Everything looks yellow!

There are busy photographers that outsource their editing, but they would expect a full, clean, professional edit of each set they oursource.
