Retouching images of large groups of kindergarten or school kids is very time-consuming. Although it might just be 5-50 images that you have to deliver to your customers and only a quick retouching is necessary; it can quickly sum up to 1-2 days in front of your computer.
Several retouching tasks can already be done using Lightroom or Capture One:
- Minor flyaway hair and blemishes, sensor spots & dust.
- Minor teeth whitening
- Minor eye bag softening
- Color correction (optional)
Please note: Softwares like Lightroom and Capture One have several limitations for retouching work, and only minor touch-ups can be done on the image using this tool. However, for most photographers, the retouching properties of this software are enough and can perfectly be incorporated into their workflow. For more detailed retouching requirements, please have a look at out other retouching services using Photoshop. For this service, you can provide us with the RAW files. However, we recommend that you send us the catalog/session for Lightroom or Capture One. If you want, we can also directly export your images in JPEG format.
Workflow tips: To start the outsourcing of your image editing, we recommend our free trial. Additionally, you have the possibility of ordering a free of charge trial editing. This means that team will choose random images and edit them according to your briefing. Before they proceed to work on the whole batch, the team will send you some examples of their editing, which you will need to approve for them to move on with the rest. This option is convenient for the beginning – however, when all processing is running smoothly, it is no longer required and slows done your orders. Furthermore, we have a whole series of YouTube videos [here] available for you to learn more about our workflow.
