Outsource photo editing

Photography is a busy profession. Arranging the products and shoot them in different angels can take a long time. Though you are a photographer you may need to involve some other part of your business. Whatever you are the only person to run your photography business or work with a team, the workload on you should be considerable. 

Right after all those photoshoot workloads you also may need to do product photo editing before submitting to your clients. That is so horrible, right? But there is a solution for decreasing your workloads. You can outsource your product photo editing and stay focused with your photography business.

In this tutorial, I will tell you_

  2. Defining the editing services you need
  3. Set pricing for your project
  4. Get your edited images

If you are planning to outsourcing your product photo editing services, you are in your perfect decision. Outsourcing product photo editing is not giving up your job, this allows you be more focused on your photography business. To get started first you need to set a plan on when you will upload your RAW images, how many images you have, when do you need them back and how you are going to pay your product photo editing partner.

Choosing Your Product Photo Editing Partner 

The first step in locating your photo editing partner is to conduct a Google search. There are numerous companies that provide photo editing services online. However, none of the businesses are professionals. You can learn about their editing quality and pricing by using their “Get Quote” feature.

If you’re looking for a company that I recommend, I’d recommend Clipping Pix.com. They have over 7 years of experience in product photo editing outsourcing. You can obtain a free sample image.

Defining The Editing Services You May Need

Once you have determined with whom you are going to work with, now it’s time to know which services you need for your images. There are several services available for editing a photo. The most popular photo editing services are_

Clipping Path Service

Background Removal Service

Photo Masking Service

Drop Shadow Service

Photo Manipulation Service

Photo Retouching Service 

If your images have fuzzy or blurred edges, you can use Clipping Path Services or Photo Masking Service to remove the background and replace it with a white or transparent background. Drop Shadow Service is an option if you require natural shadow in your photograph. If you want to remove dust from your images, select Photo Retouching Service, and if you need neck joint service or other photo manipulation, select Photo Manipulation Service.

Get Quotation Pricing For Your Project

You now know which services you may require for your image post-production, as well as the best company to work with. Then, request a quote for your image editing services from your chosen company. The cost will vary depending on the services you require. Pricing for photo editing services is determined by the complexity of your job. They calculate image editing complexity based on how long it takes to edit an entire image.

They classify images that take up to 10 minutes to edit as simple images and charge for simple image editing. Having some curves, anchor points, and wholes makes images more difficult to edit, and it takes 10-20 minutes or more to remove the background from each image. In this case, they classify these images as medium complex and charge different prices for them.

The “GET QUOTE” button can be found on most photo editing company websites. You can get pricing for your entire project by submitting one or two sample images and instructions. They usually repeat the quotation pricing within 24 hours. You can also request a free sample image to see how good the image editing is.

Get Back Your Edited Images & Pay

Once you’re satisfied with the pricing and quality, click the Order Now button to place your order. The “Order Now” button can be found in the header menu of the majority of websites. Go to the Order page and enter your images, instructions, and turnaround time. They will process your images according to your instructions and return the edited images by the deadline you specify. To return your completed images, most photo editing companies use Dropbox or Google Drive as a Cloud platform. Once you have received all of your completed images, you can pay using PayPal or MasterCard. That’s pretty straightforward, right?
