Re-Touch editing is when blemishes are cleaned up, mergers are removed, certain parts of the image morphed, etc.

Retouching  photos is not without controversy as many of the images of people you see on a magazine cover have hours of retouch work done on them.  So the person you see on the cover may not resemble the actual person as much as you may think.

However, retouching does have positive aspects.
