In today’s digital world, digital images play an important role in any e-commerce company, be it for sales or marketing.
The goal is to grab the attention of customers through the living personification of the brand. Image editing services enable a brand to improve its visual interface and make it look more vibrant and attractive to your customers.
Using advanced Photoshop techniques, the remote image editors edit and revise the product image by cropping and resizing, image ghosting, straightening, post-exposure, noise reduction, background removal, dodging, color correction, portrait retouching, HallowMan (cropping),photo retouching, and much more. By doing so, you can get high quality and creatively edited displays for your customers.
Other advantages of using an image editing service:
Vivid and expressive images
Improved reusability of images
Optimized social media strategy
Other key–benefits for your e-commerce business:
Edited images improve the overall look of the website
Vivid images become a powerful tool for marketing branding and strategy
Meaningful images on your website will grab the most attention from your customers
Adjusting images adds functionality to the overall product image
You may achieve improved sales and higher income
The first impression is the last impression
It is the overall appearance of the product that draws customers’ attention in a second. If the image quality is poor, and the pixels are scattered, customers will discard the decision to buy the product. They think the quality of the product would be of a low standard as well.
High–quality images create a positive and lasting impression of your brand.
How Image Editing Services Are Driving Ecommerce Sales
Digital purchase decisions are largely influenced by product images. According to e-marketers, Germany’s digital advertising spending has seen double-digit growth over the past 3 years. Despite the pandemic and economic bottlenecks, it is estimated that buyers of digital ads in Germany will spend 0.8% more this year than in 2019.
When promoting an online shop, in particular, it is essential to use an optimized product image for better results. Simply uploading an unedited photo will certainly not lead to maximum clicks and attention. There are plenty of software tools available online. However, in order to achieve the maximum optimization of the product image, companies should choose an image processing service provider as the cost of an image is not determined by any currency, but by management, workflow competence, processing time, image quality, and reputation. Overall, these factors play a vital role when it comes to driving more e–commerce sales to the website.

“What does a data processor do?“- We often hear this question if someone wants to know more about the possibilities of business process Outsourcing (BPO). That’s why we’d like to give you a short overview of what one does.
As the name suggests, a data processors optimises the collection and storage of data. Data here refers to any kind of information which can be categorised and stored as records according to certain criteria. This can be names, addresses, categories or numerical values which need to be put in a specific order and are saved in databases or tables.
Automated or manual: data entry comes in many forms
Manual data entry and automated data entry differ mainly on the basis of the documentation to be evaluated. Manual data entry is generally used for all types of paper based documents which can not be read or evaluated by a machine. This can also include online sources which can not be easily queried or read with software.
On the other hand, automated data entry is used for photographed or scanned originals. Printed or handwritten information is automatically read and sorted, then stored using OCR software. These types of systems are often used in logistics companies. Depending on the document type, language and the data destination, automated data entry needs customised systems. Paper documents will require a manual reworking of any document that the software cannot read.
Automatic data entry can also refer to online data source or data streams which are evaluated with the help of special software. And then, the data is saved in the desired format.
What does a data processor do as an Outsourcing provider?
In the field of BPO there are many professional providers specialising in data collection in all its forms. Large-scale data collection with special hardware and software and workflows which have been optimised accordingly can be done quickly by Outsourcing professionals, much faster than if a company were to do it itself. The larger and more extensive the contract, the greater the productivity benefits for the company. But providers specialised on certain complex types of data are also used for smaller projects.
If you would like to use data entry for your company and are looking for a suitable provider, then it is recommended to use a company with a wide range of services.
But don’t spend time puzzling over what type of provider best suits your needs. Outsourcing4work is happy to help in the selection of an excellent provider from India who is not only professional, but also affordable.
It’s not easy to find a developer for a project. If you are not a popular IT company with a well-known name or if you can’t compete with fat salaries, then you will probably be at the back of the queue. There is an especially large shortage of developers in Europe, and this is not expected to improve in the next few years.
There are simply not enough students and graduates in the IT disciplines. In addition, the restrictive immigration policy in many countries reduces the amount of top staff from other non-European countries.
“Looking for a developer for a project!” – “Where?”
You have probably already thought a lot about your requirements and budget. You posted advertisements on different portals and job sites. But have you thought about location? Does a developer really need to be from your location or region? Or are you planning a project that is more dependent on virtual teamwork?
Software developers usually work more independently. Once the details of your project have been defined, there is usually not much more to discuss until the first demo or mock-up has been developed. After that it will be questions on specific technical problems, additional ideas that had been forgotten and so on.
Smaller software projects are therefore happily handed over to a professional agency that has a lot of experience with commissioned work. This applies to websites, web applications and mobile apps as well as traditional Windows software or extensions for Microsoft’s software like Office.
India has a very special role when it comes to this type of Outsourcing. As you may already know, the tech-savvy country started investing in its IT economy much earlier than other countries. India has long been well-known for its excellent IT professionals. In Germany in the 1990s an initiative was even started to try to lure Indian IT professionals to the country to alleviate the skills shortage that existed even back then.

If you would like to convert an eBook, it often comes with a number of problems. Switching from one eBook format into another requires a bit of manual work to be able to achieve the best results, in addition to just conversion. There is software like InDesign that will undertake simple conversions automatically. Tables of contents, headers, footnotes, page numbers, graphs and charts often require individual adaptation in order to maintain the existing layout.
This is due to the existing variety of eBook formats and the lack of a uniform global standard – too many eBook reader manufacturers are competing on the booming market.
The number of devices and apps that you can use to read eBooks has significantly increased over the last few years, and is sure to grow even more. The different screen sizes and resolutions also play a role.
Modern readers can display the popular format ePUB and others quite easily. However this does not help if you would like to convert existing eBooks from the existing format in order to offer the eBook in a different format.
Converting an eBook from any format
Professionals are able to easily convert any format, such as ePUB for iPhone and iPad, Nook or PC-based formats for readers such as Adobe Digital Editions, Mobipocket (.prc), Kindle (.mobi), PDF, InDesign, Quark, MS Word and also digital templates for books in print.
These professionals are generally coders and CSS experts with lots of experience in layout. They are not only well-versed in all eBook formats, but also have the necessary software tools for the job. Converting an eBook also includes complex changes to charts, lists, images and graphics in very complex eBooks with many pages.
Converting an eBook does not have to be expensive
If you as an author, company, university or publisher would like to affordably convert an eBook, we at Outsourcing4work can help you further. We are specialised in professional offshore services in the fields of IT and business process Outsourcing, and provide suitable employees at unbeatably low prices. They are usually freelancers or agencies who are specialised in eBook conversion and other publishing services.
You can conclude the contract directly with us as a European company and leave the development to us. We are more than just traditional head-hunters or Outsourcing agencies who only provide contacts. We employ our own Scrum project managers who are well experienced with the virtual management of offshore services. They not only ensure efficient communication but also problem-free implementation.
India has a very special role when it comes to IT Outsourcing. India started investing in IT much earlier than any other country – also with educational support which created many IT related degree programs, as well as building research centres. It has really paid off for India in terms of IT Outsourcing.
India has been the world’s largest exporter of IT services since 2005, and currently has a market share of 55% of the global Outsourcing market.
You can find a professional WordPress developer through WordPress Outsourcing to India, all without high costs. The worldwide popularity of the content management system (CMS) makes it much easier to find the right professionals, and experienced WordPress developers can be found in all corners of the globe.
According to user statistics for CMS systems, WordPress is by far the most popular system. According to statistics from W3Techs, WordPress has a whopping market share of nearly 60%, and if you can believe the numbers, a global share of nearly 26% of all websites run on the popular CMS.
WordPress Outsourcing for new websites, maintenance and optimisation
WordPress Outsourcing can be used very flexibly thanks to its various contract models, and creating new websites is only one form of it. For less complex website projects, you or an employee can do at least some of the basic set up yourselves.
The easy installation and the modular approach of WordPress enable virtually anyone to set up their own website, even without any programming skills. Every WordPress website uses a combination of WordPress software for the interface and templates for the basic design, as well as plugins for the individual features and elements.
WordPress Outsourcing to India is so affordable that it is well worth it to hand over complete setup to a suitable web designer or WordPress developer. It can also be worthwhile to hire a specialist for the maintenance and optimisation of an existing WordPress website. Performance, security and regular maintenance are the main focus points for a developer.
WordPress Outsourcing to strengthen your security
WordPress suffers from more hacker attacks than any other CMS, and the CMS is hacked 24% more often than other products. One reason for this is its high popularity, just like Windows or Android. Hackers specialise in mass-produced goods because the yield from automated attacks is usually much higher. Only security plugins (such as Wordfence, All in One WP Security & Firewall) or manual modifications to the CMS code can protect a WordPress website against manual or automated attacks. A website can be secured with the right WordPress Outsourcing.
WordPress Outsourcing for maintenance
If you don’t keep your WordPress page up to date, vulnerabilities will arise that hackers can exploit. In addition, plugins that are no longer compatible can lead to problems with the functions of the website. Therefore, regular WordPress maintenance is a must.
This includes updates for the CMS itself, the templates and installed plugins, regular backups, regular database optimisation and, depending on the situation, statistics analysis and log files.
WordPress Outsourcing for performance optimisation
A WordPress specialist can optimise your webserver, the PHP and MySQL installations and WordPress itself for better performance. This almost always includes the use of Minify and caching plugins. Websites with many page views from various countries can increase accessibility and reduce loading times with a content delivery network (CDN) such as CloudFlare.
Since all of the activities described above are done completely online, you can easily use an affordable offshore provider in India. If you are interested in WordPress Outsourcing to India, we at Outsourcing4work are happy to take over finding a suitable provider for you.
We have specialised in the recruitment of Indian professionals and will easily find a suitable expert for your project. You can book a WordPress specialist in India at a fixed rate, or hire an engineer on an hourly basis. We offer all Outsourcing options and our project managers guarantee professional implementation. Contracts are concluded with us as a European company, which will provide you with additional legal security.
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.
Photo editing services: how to find a provider
Outsourcing4work can provide you with an Indian Outsourcing agency for professional photo editing. We can easily find a perfectly suited provider based on the subject and your specific requirements. We have contact to many professional image agencies who are specialised in photo editing for a wide range of topics. We always pay attention to references and demo image material to give you the highest quality at the lowest rates.
If you are looking for an app developer you are not alone. Hardly any other sector in IT is experiencing as big a boom as the one for mobile apps. Because this trend is still relatively young, the high demand is being met by a highly growing supply, yet it is still not enough – especially in the area of high-quality apps.
The strong upheavals of the mobile sector has caused app developers to often re-orient and continuously educate themselves. A look at the statistics from NetMarketShare illustrates the dramatic process in the mobile sector.
Today more app developers are needed than just a few years ago
While seven years ago there was a high demand for Symbian app developers for Nokia’s smartphone interface, this field is now virtually dead. Symbian used to be the market leader, nowadays Android dominates the market with over 60%. Symbian has not been developed any further since 2014, which Nokia decided to use the relatively new Windows Phone system from Microsoft.
It’s almost just as disastrous for the then business phone market leader, BlackBerry. Its 20% market share in 2009 has now reduced to a meagre 1.5%. There is currently a well-maintained system with BlackBerry 10, however there are hardly any new BlackBerry apps developed and nearly zero demand for a BlackBerry app developer. Since many app developers focus on Android and iOS, it is no longer easy to find a BlackBerry developer experienced in the latest version.
iOS and Android app developers are the most wanted
According to market data from January 2016, Android holds a market share of nearly 60% and iOS nearly 33%. Both systems cover nearly the entire market for mobile devices, which means that any app developers sought are primarily for these platforms. Only Windows Phone plays a special role, despite its low market share, and is kept alive by Microsoft with large amounts of money.
There are still opportunities here for app developers however, as Microsoft is providing a common app platform for mobile devices and desktop computers with the Universal Windows app model. Microsoft has also released porting tools such as the new iOS to Windows 10 App Bridge to make app development for Windows apps as easy as possible for developers. You can therefore assume that Windows app developers will continue to be sought after.
On the safe side with app developers from India
If you are planning your own app, don’t let the upheaval in the mobile sector worry you. You can realise your app project affordably with Indian professionals with Outsourcing4work.
No matter whether you would like to implement an app project for one or several platforms, or if you are interested in a fixed-price project or an hourly one. We will find the right app developer for you!
And if you would like to develop a rather complex app, you can also hire an entire team of app developers as a branch (light) with our help. We have the necessary expertise and the suitable partner for projects of every size.
WordPress is considered to be the most popular content management system in the world. About 44 percent of all blogs and websites are now created with WordPress. Even well-known companies and organizations such as Spotify, Honda, Great Gorillas and Atlantic Southeast Airlines rely on the clever CMS. It’s not surprising then that every day hundreds of new WordPress developers want to conquer the software market and want to make their mark on the interactive World Wide Web. It is of course difficult for companies to keep track of the self-proclaimed, qualified WordPress developers, and then to ultimately decide on one of the developers.
Good qualifications or an excellent reputation? Why not both?
Because the professional title of WordPress developer is not protected in Europe, any career changer or hobby software developer can call themselves a WordPress developer. This is why, when companies select their WordPress developer, they should not only listen to promises, but also ask for proof of work and previous projects. On the basis of this portfolio you can draw good conclusions on the quality of work of the software developer. And this can still be very positive without a higher education degree or special certificates. Similarly, it is advisable to compare the portfolio with your own project requirements. What use is a gifted online shop developer if you want to implement a blog system and the software developer has no expertise in that field?
Because WordPress is a PHP based content management system, an accomplished WordPress developer should know this scripting language, and hopefully other programming languages, and implement them according to your wishes. In addition to the developer’s tools of the trade, they know the database system MySQL and has a basic sense of an appealing web design. The developer should efficiently implement codes and create search engine optimized pages. Further requirements should be discussed individually with your WordPress developer.
A European freelancer or WordPress Outsourcing? Decide yourself!
The trend in the European job market is towards external software developers. This, of course, carries a high risk of bad investments. That’s why many companies in the IT industry do not only rely on the portfolio of a freelance WordPress developer, but also on their reputation. Whoever copies their codes from other sites or carelessly creates it should definitely not be on your shortlist. Many agencies now specialize in providing IT freelancers on the European market. This reduces the risk of bad investments, but still leaves a deep hole in your pockets.
A cost-efficient alternative is to outsource entire WordPress projects. For example, Indian WordPress developers cost up to 80% less than their European counterparts. You can then use these savings in other projects. A further advantage is that companies can focus on their core competencies and don’t have to worry about additional IT training for their employees. Because Outsourcing markets like India have millions of qualified software developers available, developers who can quickly and efficiently implement business solutions, websites, online shops and many more.
What else is there to think about?
Despite these various tips, ultimately you should decide which WordPress developers fit you and your company the best. Although professional qualifications are important inthe process of decision making, soft skills, such as the ability to work in a team, should not be underestimated. A good working atmosphere is also important, to ensure good cooperation.
