Editing photos can be a time consuming and cumbersome task. This is especially true if you have hundreds or even thousands of individual images to sort through, and need to have a large volume of images manually edited.
This is often a chore for professional photographers, one which takes away time from actual shooting. According to the International Society of Professional and Wedding Photographers, photo editing takes up twice as much time as the photography itself. It’s the same for their colleagues in event photography – especially when shooting fairs or galas.
Outsourcing: when professionals edit photos affordably
Editing and optimising photos is usually a task for professional graphic designers and image editors. Luckily you can find them all over the world, and, since linguistic knowledge plays almost no role in photo editing, you can easily use offshore outsourcing and delegate this task to professionals abroad.
Photographers who have their photos edited by image professionals in India can use this new free time for additional work. Since a professional photographer’s hourly wage is much higher than that of an Indian retouching professional, they can even increase their own productivity and personal profit. Usually this task will then be done even faster, since an outsourcing agency specialising in photo editing can distribute the retouching among several employees – even overnight orders of a large scale are possible.
In addition to a qualitative improvement in the image thanks to contrast correction, as well as to the brightness, saturation, gamma and colour, specialised photo editing providers in India will also take on tasks that go above and beyond photo editing. In addition to noise reduction, sharpness, cropping and straightening, they can also perform tasks such as trimming, removing the background and black dots, increasing the background relative to the people and object or targeted colour manipulation according to specific criteria.
However, not only professional photographers can benefit Indian outsourcing providers specialised in photo editing. For companies in the media industry or any other institution that needs to regularly work through large amounts of photos, outsourcing to external professionals is often useful.
A real estate agent will often get photos from clients which are of a low quality, or they will hire their own employee to regularly work on the many property images. Event and advertising agencies also work with a lot of images, be it for clients, their own home page or image databases.
For results that are as professional as possible, only real image specialists should edit photos, although this is not always the case. Your own employees might be able to do a simple retouching of a few images. If you are under time pressure or have a large amount of photos it can be well worth it to use an Indian agency.
