If you have to frequently free-form select photos – as a photographer, media agency or company – it is worth it to use a photo specialist.
It’s the same if you have particularly complex images to free-form select which have different borders which make the task extremely difficult, yet the results still have to be perfect.
Free-form selecting images: partially or completely
When free-form selecting the background does not necessarily need to be removed from the image, nor any distracting objects. Partial free-form select removes unimportant areas of the image by minimising contrasts or sharpness, which preserves the context of the image. Knowledge and attention to detail are a must to be able to achieve good results, in comparison to simply removing individual objects.
Related and secondary tasks
If you free-form select, there are often still a large amount of additional tasks to complete. These typically include removing black points or other inaccuracies, and optimising the contrast, sharpness and brightness.
Product photos or images of objects that will be further processed later can have their background changed after free-form selecting, people or objects enlarged against a background and colour manipulated. You can also have a number of options for each picture which you can then use in various ways.
Selection criteria for the right provider
Before you free-form select your images, you should take a look at references and sample material, in addition to the rates. Results can differ with particularly demanding images. If non-destructive editing in RAW format or modifying metadata is important, this can lead to additional costs.
It is also important to pay attention to the reputation of the agency for personal or confidential material, and the precautions each provider makes for data protection.
Outsourcing4work is happy to take on these tasks, and will find you an affordable and experienced graphic designer from India for free-form selecting your photos. We can make the right offer for you depending on the urgency, scope and complexity of the work. We will take over the order processing for you and you will conclude the contract with us.
If you would like to have photos edited professionally, you don’t have to find an expensive graphic designer from Europe. Indian photo editors will do this work at a fraction of the cost, and you won’t have to compromise on high quality.
You can have photo editing done in various ways – you will find experienced specialists in India for each method, specialists who do nothing else every day. This can include the retouching, colour enhancement or restoration of old photos, as well as extensive manipulation with Adobe Photoshop. Short-term photo editing of large image collections or a continuous service for companies in the media industry is possible with Indian providers.
Photo editing services: quality is important
Professional results can only be achieved by an experienced provider. Simpler photo editing can perhaps be done by an in-house marketing team, or with a graphic designer who works with you.
If you are under time pressure or have a large amount of photos it can be well worth it to use an Indian agency. The high wage differences between India and Europe make this possible, even for small budgets. Here are a few examples where using an Indian provider is well worth it:
Photo editing event pictures
You organised an event and now high huge stacks of high-resolution images with many important subjects. Since you didn’t hire a professional photographer the brightness, contrast and colour quality is not ideal for most of the pictures. Rather than subjecting your employees to the tedious work of editing hundreds or thousands of images with a photo editing program, you can just hire an Indian professional.
Real estate agents: photo editing property images
As a real estate agent you constantly receive images from clients which are bad quality, and your own in-house photographer is busy. Through continuous collaboration with an Indian photo editor you will always have perfectly edited imaged for your properties.
Web agencies: photo editing images of products, presentations and people
Web agencies work with a lot of images and also use professional photo databases. These PR professionals like to hand over these tedious photo editing for large projects to external agencies. They can concentrate on their own creative work thanks to the out of house realisation. Raw material, sketches and designs can be given to the Indian graphic designers, who then create glossy brochures or other material in high quality.
Restoration: photo editing old photos
As a publisher you would like to publish a biography and have a large amount of very old, scratched, ripped or yellowed family photos. Experienced image specialists can expertly restore these very important photos.
Outsourcing4work can help you in all of these cases, and will introduce you to a suitable Indian provider who will deliver you the highest quality at low rates. We have a large network of suitable partners for every type of job.
Computer games developers take on many different tasks in game development. Different to traditional software development, in computer games the aesthetic, humour, originality and sound and image quality play a key role. This leads to a different development process than in normal apps or application programs, and also leads to specialisations that only exist in game development. Some of these tasks can be easily outsourced to affordable professionals, such as those in India.
Computer games developer is a generic term
If you are talking about a computer games developer you are speaking generically about a person who is involved in the creation of computer games. Usually there is a distinction made between the following areas which are grouped together under the term computer games developer.
Game producers take care of the organisation and the financing of a game project. They are the main person responsible for a game title, just like producers in the film industry.
A game designer is in charge of the most important creative work, and can roughly be compared to a director for a film. They set the content of the game, the game play and the feel.
A game developer takes care of the technical implementation with the help of a game engine, a type of development environment for the creation of computer games which has special graphics capabilities. C++ is often used as a programming language. The most widely used 3D engines are CryEngine, Unity Engine and Unreal Engine, but many game studios use their own developments as well.
Game graphic designers design all of the visuals and frames in the game. A special group of game graphic designers are modellers, which create spatial objects with the help of special modelling software.
Composers are not really computer game developers, but are still associated with it. They provide the background music once the various stages or sequences are done.
Sound designers make the soundscape and the many hundreds or even thousands of noises and sound effects to create a lively atmosphere in the gameplay.
Most computer games work with sequences, missions, worlds or levels which are created by level designers. They use the material supplied by games graphic artists, sound designers and developers to create the entire whole and follow the specifications of the game designer.
Indian computer games developers at low rates
The gaming sector is booming in the IT nation of India. European clients can benefit from the significantly lower rates for their own game projects. If you are interested in your own computer games developer from India, you can let your game project be completely realised in India, or you can selectively hire Indian specialists to shoulder some of the burden from your own development team. Sound designer, level designer or graphic designer tasks are especially well-suited to Outsourcing.
Outsourcing4work can help you find Indian computer games developers for your games project. Thanks to our excellent contacts we have a large number of highly skilled games developers in India to draw from. Our experienced project managers in Europe will ensure smooth cooperation with the computer games developer throughout the entire development phase.
An increasing amount of companies who sell their goods or services online are using professional image editing: retouching product images and technical recordings, as well as editing and colourising property photos for real estate agents, or pictures of attractive rooms in hotels and restaurants. When a large amount of photos needs to be edited, as online shops or mail order companies are always bringing in new products, it makes sense to delegate these tasks to a professional company. However, this can cost quite a bit, and clients are then faced with the problem that they would like to optimise costs for digital image editing, but still would like them to be high quality and the handling should be fast. There is a solution: you can have both quality and low rates with the services of an external specialist from India.
Image editing: save time and money with Outsourcing!
Photo editing services form India provide you with a high quality image editing service for professional company photos which saves the company time and money. Some of the services in the area of image processing include:
Editing building shots
Restoring historical photos
Colourising company photos
Retouching product images
Free-form selecting product images
Creating 360 degree panorama shots
Many of these highly qualified and specialised companies in image processing are based in India. India has become the world’s largest Outsourcing market. There are many companies on the subcontinent which are specialised in photo services and very experienced in this field. These Indian professionals employ hundreds of specially trained and experienced employees who can be hired by European companies flexibly, according to project volume. These employees work shift patterns and are also available over the weekend. The service providers offer these services at exceptional rates thanks to the large difference in salaries – which is a huge plus for European clients.
When everything needs to be perfect: image editing by professionals for professionals
A further advantage for companies who would like to outsource their image editing to India: you are delegating complicated tasks to external workers who can complete these tasks better than your own employees – they are trained in using image editing software and have extensive experience in image editing. And this rapid and perfect image processing comes at an unbeatable price.
If you are interested in Outsourcing, you can get in touch with us. We will provide you with the contact to our Indian partner companies and supervise the project from here on out. A plus for clients: we work during European office hours, the business language is German or English and you will have a contact person available in our office for your questions at any time.
A steadily increasing number of business clients are using professional image processing: photographers and photo agencies need portraits and wedding pictures to be retouched, real estate agencies get photographs of holiday flats and apartments edited, online shops and mail order companies have thousands of product images that need to be flawless and look professional – whether cropping the image, retouching backgrounds and shadows, or even playing with the colours in the image. It makes sense to delegate these services to a specialised company, especially if there is a large amount of them that need to be professionally processed. However, this can cost you. Many companies would like to optimise the costs for professional image processing, and not have to compromise on quick and secure handling. Outsourcing to India can be the solution – here are 5 reasons why:
Professional image processing:save time and money with Outsourcing
High specialisation: there is a huge amount of qualified service providers in India who are specialised in professional image processing. They offer a wide range of photo editing tasks that fit perfectly to the needs of online shops, photographers or web agencies. This includes retouching close-ups as well as editing shots of buildings, restoring historic photos and cropping product images.
Exceptional quality: the Indian subcontinent has become the number one Outsourcing market over the last few years. Companies such as Microsoft, Oracle and IBM have contributed by opening a location in India, but the Indian central government has also invested heavily in the development of centres of academic excellence. India has a large amount of specialists in software and IT development, but also many highly qualified people who work in IT related services. They have the knowledge and expertise to use modern software for tasks such as professional image processing.
Diversified supply structure: India is a main location to outsource business processes, IT services or even back office tasks – including professional image processing. India has more than 50% of the market share on the global offshore market. India’s dominance in Outsourcing and the IT service sector is due to many factors: millions of well-qualified people, as well as the low costs for the recruitment and training of employees, costs for corporate infrastructure and workplaces, as well as the tax aspects. In addition, Indian companies have developed a wide range of services.
Low costs: India is still a low-wage country. Despite the fact that wages have increased in the last few years, and Indian IT professionals earn very well for the country, wage levels are still far below the rates in European countries. European companies now offer their employees more than just good salaries: flexible work models, company gyms and restaurants are among the many “perks” which take up a lot of investment. It is therefore very affordable for European companies to outsource services such as professional image processing to India.
Great flexibility: India is currently the most competitive and popular Outsourcing destination in the global Outsourcing and offshoring market, thanks to its large pool of IT experts such as developers and web designers, as well as professionals for the back office and professional image processing. This has been confirmed by various studies. Indian companies employ hundreds, sometimes even thousands of equally qualified employees and can respond flexibly to the needs of their clients in Europe. If you have a job to retouch thousands of photos, their many employees can professionally process them. They work in shifts seven days a week, and entire teams can be “hired”. This flexibility is one of the great strengths of Indian companies.
A game developer is a popular person. This is due to the rapid growth of the industry, which has developed over the last twenty years into a multi-billion dollar market. New devices constantly provide additional fields of application. Earlier games were played on consoles or on the computer, and nowadays games are being played on smartphones and tablets too.
Even with highly complex 3D multiplayer games, technical progress is continuing to be made. 3D shooters, previous bestsellers, are still extremely popular today. In terms of sales and development, Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPG) have lost popularity since the World of Warcraft.
According to its developer, Blizzard, the game is still being played with over one hundred million accounts and over five million active users listed and registered.
The games market has much more to offer, an incomplete list on Wikipedia lists 84 computer game genres. And for each one a game developer with special abilities are needed.
Game developer is not a traditionally educated profession
Even though there are now a number of degree programs, many game developers are still new to development. This is because the game design courses, which differ from the math-filled computer science courses, offered by private universities are often expensive.
Game experience, creativity and great enthusiasm are often important for game studios, in addition to programming skills.
In contrast to application, app and web development, in computer games the aesthetic, originality and the sound and image quality play a key role. A game developer must work within a range of disciplines, and not only think about pure purpose and efficiency.
The Outsourcing market for game developers is growing
Computer games are developed in large teams, just like other software. And their budgets are often very tight, excluding large blockbuster studios. Therefore, it makes sense to hand over specific tasks to low-cost external game developers.
Luckily, nowadays this is no longer a problem in the field of game development in countries such as India. If you are looking for a knowledgeable game developer, Outsourcing4work is happy to help.
We provide you with exceptional game developers as either a temporary or dedicated employee. And if you want to outsource most of your development work to India, with our help you can also create your own branch (light) of game developers. We have the necessary expertise and the suitable partner for projects of every size.
