If you have ever tried wedding photo editing services, you are likely to cooperate with Fotofafa, since this is one of the best companies in this genre.
Anyway, there are other agencies that offer top-quality photo editing services for photographers but for a lower cost and with seasonal discounts.
That’s why, I decided to compare two services – FixThePhoto and Fotofafa for you to choose the most suitable variant for your needs.
Fotofafa is a popular service that provides wedding and portrait post processing services for photographers. Here you can order image culling, color correction and different levels of photo retouching, as well as order album design or even album print.
After the photo session has finished, you have many photos to sort and choose the best ones. The picture you select for further image editing must be clear, sharp, without random objects and distracting elements.
Some image editing companies, for example, Photographers Edit, offers photo culling only together with color correction services.
Luckily, FixThePhoto and Fotofafa image editing outsourcing companies give you a chance to order everything separately, which is an important benefit.
Another great feature both services can boast is the possibility to specify your requirements in a specific place and write the number of images you wish to get at the end.
You should remember that ordering Fotofafa service, you get the result pictures only in LR catalog, while FixThePhoto delivers your images in the format that you choose.
Color correction helps adjust light and colors, white balance, remove noise, add effects, etc.
As for the services, they are approximately the same both in Fotofafa, and in FixThephoto.
You can order correction of colors, exposure, contrast, white balance, sharpness, noise reduction, leveling and cropping.
Fotofafa offers 3 levels of color correction – Standard, Advanced and Custom editing. The first one includes only Lightroom sliders: Exposure, Contrast, and Temperature and it costs $0.21 as indicated on the site.
Some services, like clarity, highlight detail, noise reduction are added to the second one, and the price is correspondingly higher – $0.25 per image.
By ordering Custom editing, you have the possibility to get a Finish, Grain or Vignette effect in addition to all Advanced functions.
You can also get black-and-white photos if you want, and they will make virtual copies of these photos for an additional charge. The retouchers will preserve your image editing style. You can write your wishes and attach your unique preset if there is any. The price for this is $0.29 per picture.
FixThePhoto color correction service, in turn, will delight you with quality, price, and simplicity of the ordering procedure.
Unlike Fotofafa outsource color correction company, FixThePhoto doesn’t have different levels of image post processing, and for $0.02 you will receive all those services that are included even in Custom editing.
From photo culling, color correction to professional face/body photo retouching, it’s all about wedding photo editing.
As I have already mentioned, Fotofafa is a wedding photo editing service, so all services here are aimed at wedding photography.
In addition to those that I’ve described above, you have an opportunity to order Album design along with Album Design & Print.
FixThePhoto deals with all types of shots, but it doesn’t prevent the company from providing all kinds of services for wedding photography post-production. For instance, in addition to color correction and picture retouching, there is a feature of photo manipulation and montage.
Thanks to it, you may get an interesting stylization, add falling flower petals, etc.
Moreover, FixThePhoto offers excellent wedding packages that will allow you to process a large number of photos, while saving money.
Among them are Wedding Light package for $99, which includes color correction, and Wedding Pro package for $149.
To get beautiful shots without defects – skin imperfections, both face and body, as well as skin smoothing, teeth whitening, body shaping, etc. you need this service.
I should start with Fotofafa, because their image retouching is a bit confusing. You can choose between two types of picture retouching – regular and customs retouching.
The regular one, in turn, is divided into 2 levels – Basic Package and A la Carte. Basic Package implies a limited number of image editing services, which include skin softening, elimination of stray hair and blemishes, etc.
By the way, the price here depends on the number of people in the shot, which, in my opinion, isn’t very beneficial for group pictures, because it may get rather expensive.
A la Carte Package is a bit complicated. Here the price depends on the number of people in the shot and the type of services that you wish to apply to the image.
At Fotofafa, you have a choice of various manipulations with eyes, teeth, hair, face and body. It is disappointing that color correction isn’t included in these services and you will have to pay extra – $0.22 per shot.
As for Custom retouching, here everything is very simple. If the usual retouch is unsuitable, and you would like to either remove some large object or swap body parts/head, choose these picture retouching services and write what you would like to do with the shot. Here color correction is already included, and the price for it is $1/minute.
As for FixThePhoto, this photo editing company offers a vast variety of image post-processing services, starting from wedding to product, high-end, real estate, newborn, headshot, jewelry and portrait photography.
Еhe basic picture retouching costs $2 per shot. Comparing to Basic Package from Fotofafa, the set of features is practically identical, but the price is lower.
If you take a closer look, Fotofafa turns out a little more expensive, whether it is culling, color correction or picture retouching.
If we take into account a la Carte and Custom retouching packs, it is even more expensive. The price here varies from about $0.21 to $20 per person in the shot.
At FixThePhoto, the price is fixed and for one shot you will pay from $0.14 to $10 per image no matter how many people are captured. At Fotofafa, it is very difficult to determine the price, as it depends on many factors.
FixThePhoto will also please you with its discounts. You may get a discount from 15% to 50%.
At Fotofafa, the discounts aren’t provided. If you are a beginner and just starting to use their wedding post production service, you may use a 5% discount code for the first order.
You also have an opportunity to send a promo code to your friend or acquaintance. I
n this case, he/she will receive a 10% discount on the first order, and you will receive $10 for any services.
Are you a regular Fotofafa customer but are willing to approach another picture post-production company? Then use FotofafaFixThePhoto coupon while ordering at FixThePhoto. This coupon provides a 25% discount on any chosen image post-processing service at FixThePhoto.
