Photography: What is the difference between a "Retouch" and an "Edit?"

 

"Retouching" is different from "Editing." 

Editing: Every photo we send to clients is edited -- cropped, and corrected for lighting/exposure and color temperature.  

"Retouching" is comprised of removing blemishes, smoothing skin, removing scar tissue,  removing  light poles, or even recomposing an entire shot
