Photo editing service for photographer

But your product photos can’t be low quality or else no one will buy, no matter how good the product descriptions are. Photo editing and professional Photoshop services are one way to ensure that your photos are ready for the web, but first you must lay the groundwork.

Here are a few tips to take great eCommerce photos before sending the images for photo cropping, color correcting, brightening, and otherwise editing.


  • Keep it simple: Use a clean background so the product stands out. White, or other light colors that don’t draw attention from your product work best. Black or very dark b (more…)

5 Secrets Your Wedding Photographer Won’t Tell You

Ywedding photo editingou have spent a lot of precious time planning your wedding, so it is only appropriate that you also dedicate some time to finding a professional wedding photo editing service; that way, you’ll have stunning pictures of your event for years to come! Your photographer is undoubtedly an important part of your day, so you don’t want to hire just anyone. Read on to learn five secrets your wedding photographer won’t tell you.

1. Pick a photographer based on your vision and style

You do not want to be stuck with a photographer who has a different style than you, which can result in getting pictures and photo editing services you are not interested in. Considering that professional photographs are twice as likely as user-generated photographs to be shared, you want your style to come through and shine!

2. Different looks require different equipment

Say you like pictures with a focal point and a blurry background. And you like images with soft colors, a vintage look, and/or sharp contrast pictures. Each of these requires different equipment, photo cropping, and photo culling services, so make sure to talk to your photographer about your preferences before the wedding, in order to ensure you can achieve the look you desire.

3. They are paid hourly

Typically, wedding photographers are paid hourly, so make sure to keep this in mind when you book them for your day. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics estimates that in 2013 professional photographers had an average hourly pay of $17.88. Some photographers may negotiate a flat fee based on the number of hours and number of pictures you want, but you have to clear that before signing any agreements, so there aren’t any surprises down the line. Also, make sure to talk to the agency you are working with, as more and more photography companies are hiring freelancers. This means that in some cases you may not have the same photographer at your wedding than the one you spoke with.

4.It is hard to exactly replicate pictures found online

While a good photographer is able to try their best in replicating a photo you found online, it can be impossible due to factors such as light and location. You’ll also want to give your photographer a little freedom to be creative, too; most artists won’t want to spend their energy trying to exactly emulate someone else’s work.

5. Asking for specific shots isn’t always a good idea

Let the photographer capture candid, hidden moments from throughout the day instead of focusing only on specific shots. This way you will be able to have all the emotions from the day documented, and it will make the wedding photo editing for the photographer much easier.

With these tips in mind, your wedding pictures will turn out fabulous. Just don’t forget to smile!
