Client: The Product Farm / Vino2Go®
Original photo of the Vino2Go on the left was taken on a rainy day. Final image on the right have been color enhanced and retouched in Photoshop. I replaced the original red wine as it did not have the luster and translucence I wanted in the shot. Photo: Fredrik Perman.

The art director did not like how gray the fish appeared in the original photo on the left. Color enhanced in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet.
Client: Volkswagen Jetta 01'/02' Campaign
Example of daily tasks as a retouch artist at KåPe Communication AB - Stockholm, Sweden. The "Jazz Blue" Jetta on the far right is the original color. Volkswagen provided me with car paint swatches to match in order to get the color right. I made an alpha channel to apply the color correction. I applied proper light box lighting to the color swatch to see how highlights reacted to light and also scanned the provided steel swatches.
The image on the left is the original. The image was not large enough to fit the proper printed area of the ad, so I had to extend the image on both sides. The final image became 25% wider than the original.
Scandinavian Masters 01' Sponsors Campaign
The assignment was to put the Scandinavian Masters logos on the golf balls in a realistic way. I got the right perspective by adding the logos to spheres in Autodesk 3DSmax. The next step was to make the imprint follow the indention in the golf ball - in Photoshop.
H&M Contemporary 99' Spring Campaign - Client: Lowe Brindfors - Stockholm
The agency's art director was concerned about the tattoo on the shoulder. So I sketched out a new one that he approved. From there on it was just a matter of making sure it followed the contour of the shoulder in several different model poses. The image has also been color corrected in the skin tones and clothing. Hair and freckles have been removed from the skin. The birds feathers and mans hair has been lightened.
