Many photographers agree that post-production is the most time-consuming part of the whole photography session experience. Why does this happen? Simple: with post-production we compensate for the mistakes we may have made by lack of experience, inadequate gear, unexpected situations, and also, we bring in that quality to the work we do that sets the difference between amateurs and professionals.
How many nights did you spent awake trying to complete a session to be delivered on a tight deadline? Let us tell you this: we know the experience, and that’s the reason why we felt something had to be done to help photographers worldwide.
But what if you don’t consider yourself a professional photographer but you truly need your photos to stand out? What if your photos cannot be edited by just using presets because you don’t know which parameters to tweak for them not to be too saturated, too unnatural? We also have an answer for you.
How does the Professional Photo Editing Services work?
As we mentioned above, we know by heart how is to feel frustrated for not having an extra hand, or a more trained pair of eyes to check our work. This goes beyond any photo skill level, as anyone can feel the benefits of outsourcing a professional photo editor, but let’s explain the process in detail.
You take your photos – either photos from professional work, hobby, family photos, self-portraits, anything. You visit our Photo Editing Service page here and the process is as simple as to buy a product from the store.
•Select the number of photographs you wish to have edited
•Go through checkout. Discounts on bulk orders will be applied automatically, or you can also add a promo code if you previously agreed on a rate with our team via email/chat
•After being redirected to the photo editing service page, you upload your photos and write down detailed instructions of what you need us to edit photos for you
•The editors will review the files and instructions, and reach back in case of any question. Images will be delivered within our deadline
The price you pay is per photo, regardless of how many edits you request. Keep in mind that if you need a photo replacement or similar edit, the price you pay is for the final image – one photo – no matter of how many photos you need to send us to replace the parts.
The fee to be paid – Basic, Pro or Commercial – will depend on the requirements of your edits. We included some basic guidelines of what each service covers. For fashion sessions, high-quality wedding photography edits, real estate photo editing, product photo editing or similar niches, we highly advise you to get the Commercial Edit service as you will notice how your images stand out as you’ve never imagined. That Commercial Edit service has the limitation that we request only high-quality DSLR/mirrorless camera images, in RAW format , as it’s the only way to extract all the juice out of your images.
Why should you hire Professional Photo Editing?
Photography can be both an exciting and frustrating experience, and that only gets fuelled by social media platforms because we fall into the trend of comparing our work to others’. Instead of taking photography as a gradual learning process, frustration or high expectation can lead us to believe that we “are a failure”, that we “are not apt for this craft”, and many other nonsense anxieties, perfectionism, and other forms of insecurity creep out to refrain us from improvement.
While we always advocate for a constant learning mindset, it’s true that life happens, work happens, and the deadlines of others are not necessarily in line with our learning process. Hence the reason why many potential great photographers give up before even trying, as they feel they are “not ready” to take on customers because one part of the process is still not learnt. We’ve been there, we know the struggle, and that’s why we want to help you out.
Our philosophy is that every photo should evoke a strong emotion, and digital post-production sets the difference on that regard today by taking a raw, unprocessed image, to stardom by just knowing which aspects need to be enhanced. It takes years and training to feel confident enough to deliver professional results, so here we propose you two things: quality results and also a learning process.
How so, you may ask. We grant you this: after checking your edited images you will compare between the original and the edited result – that will immediately trigger a response in your eyes so you appreciate which aspects were enhanced to get that “wow effect” out of your craft. That’s not just magic. Photoshop services – or the many other alternatives in software that we use – are the result of practice, trial and error. You learn more out of each image you take, and you learn more out of each image you process. This same thing will happen to you.
This situation explained above can appeal to many beginner photographers, but the truth is we work with a large database of professional photographers that trust in our skills to handle their orders. For a Professional Photographer is not only crucial to delegate parts of their workflow to help expand their businesses, but let’s face another reality: we have seasons. Wedding photography season, prom season, festive image season, etc. Such dates can be maddening for a professional photographer that can’t cope with the amount of workload. Instead of turning down potential customers for a lifetime, we offer you a secure way to process your images while you can keep working on the other aspects that make your business successful and unique.
