Do you use the Photographers Edit services but want to find a professional alternative with the higher wide range of options for outsourcing photo editing services? You should read this detailed Photographers Edit review where I’ll compare two popular services to find out their pros and cons, image editing services, photo retouching prices, special offers, etc.
Photographers Edit is a fairly young photo editing service. At first glance, it may seem that this photo editing business is engaged only in wedding photo post-production. However, their main services are image culling, color correction and different levels of picture retouching that can be applied to any type of photography. As for photo retouching rates per image, one photo will costs you from $0.14 to $5 and above.
Photo culling service is of great importance for all photographers, regardless of the genres they are working in. You may think that this is rather easy work - you just need to select successful shots. In fact, this process can take a lot of time. It is an especially difficult task for beginners. That’s why using outsource photo editing services can simplify this process.
The first service that Photographers Edit offers us is photo culling, although it can be ordered only in combination with color correction. In my opinion, the site has a bit complicated ordering scheme. You need to select an approximate percentage of photos that you would like to get after analyzing and selection, and the percentage of photos that need color correction.
The price ranges from $0.14 to $0.19 per image. It is also difficult to find information whether you can mark the necessary images on the website. Perhaps, it should be written in the description to the order.
FixThePhoto, in turn, will please you with the ease and availability of this kind of outsource photography editing services. First, you will not need to overpay in case you need only photo culling without color correction. Unlike Photographers Edit, you have the opportunity to mark the necessary pictures, marking them with a star in Lightroom. Plus, the price is only $0.05 per image.
The color correction stage comes after photo culling. This type of photo editing services for photographers means adjusting of white balance, exposure, shadows, tints, colors, etc. to make the picture more beautiful and attractive.
The color correction offered by FixThePhoto and Photographers Edit is similar in services included as well as in rates. However, most importantly, what about quality? Unfortunately, in this case, it is difficult to say something about the quality, as there are no photo examples and not much feedback at Photographers Edit. You may request to process 10 pictures for review, but it can delay the turnaround time. Moreover, if you want to add some notes, you will be limited only to 100 characters.
The opposite situation is observed on the FixThePhoto site because the user can really find a lot of photo examples. Use FixThePhoto for perfect color correction, highlights, balance, shadows adjustment and the best photo editing results.
Nowadays, photo retouching has become very popular. Not only famous photographers who are working with popular magazines, but even ordinary people are engaged in it thanks to outsourcing photo editing. Photo retouching can include, for example, smoothing the skin, unnecessary details removal, glare and shine correction and even changing the shape of the face. The wide range of Photoshop editing services allows you to edit your pictures very professionally, but remain them natural at the same time.
What services can be offered to customers by both professional photo editing companies? You can simply become confused by the variety of them provided by FixThePhoto. First of all, you can order image retouching of any photo, for example, wedding, newborn, portrait, product, high-end, jewelry, real estate, food, car, etc. You will be offered different levels of editing outsourcing, such as Pro, High-End and Extra levels. You can smooth skin, whiten teeth and remove unwanted objects.
This is just a short list of photo editing services for photographers presented by FixThePhoto. The company’s professional retouchers can do literally everything. Even if you would like to do something interesting with your images, you can use photo manipulation and montage service. If you want to be sure in the best photo editing quality, just look at examples presented on the site.
As for Photographers Edit, the situation is not so promising. The site offers users three types of outsourcing photo editing services, such as Basic, Advanced and Custom retouching. Unlike FixThePhoto, the list of services is much smaller. The thing that are included in Pro Level retouching, can be ordered in the Custom retouching service, which is considered the most advanced one. The Basic level includes only the adjustment brush, skin blemish removal and basic flyaway hair removal.
Photo retouching price list for these services are slightly lower than FixThePhoto has – $1.5, $3 and from $5 respectively. However, it’s difficult to judge about their quality. There is a small number of provided examples, and it’s not quite clear whether it’s a picture retouching or a simple photo correction.
Wedding photo retouching services is the most demanded type of services for photographers. From basic color adjustment to complex group photo retouching – this photo editing requires professional skills and much experience to provide a fast turnaround.
When you go to the Photographers Edit website, you can see a wedding interface with a lot of pictures of newlyweds or loving couples. It may seem that the wedding outsource photography editing service is at a high level but is it really so? All their services are limited to the above-mentioned ones. Unfortunately, there are no wedding packages or any special offers. So it will be rather expensive to order a lot of photos for wedding photo editing service.
In such case, you will be pleasantly impressed by FixThePhoto. Firstly, it provides image editing of excellent quality, and you can easily see this by viewing their before and after photo samples. Secondly, here you can choose basic services, professional photo retouching and even photo montage. In other words, if you want to change the image or correct something, everything is possible with FixThePhoto. Also, FixThePhoto retouchers offer very advantageous wedding photo editing packages – Wedding Light for $99 per set and Wedding Pro for $159 per set.
Despite the fact that portrait photo retouching requires a certain amount of creativity, this process has some universal and essential tasks, such as eliminating skin blemishes, eyes imperfections, makeup fails and working with color. Undoubtedly, this type of outsourcing photo editing is the most frequently requested if we take into account the desires of contemporary photographers.
The main task of portrait retouching is to make the photo look stunning, without imperfections, but very natural at the same time. Performing the best photo editing and retouching is not easy, but FixThePhoto copes with it perfectly. I think it is not necessary to specify again all the outsource photo editing services that they offer. In brief, you have a choice between Pro and Extra level of picture retouching. However, to make more significant changes, such as changing a part of the body or the color of clothes as well as replacing the background, then you should better use Extra level.
As for Photographers Edit’s, they must also perform a good portrait retouching, since their main service package is directed at this area. Unfortunately, there is no evidence of this, and there is no possibility to see their photo samples. However, you can ask for 10 test photos when ordering.
Choosing Basic Retouching, you will only receive such services as an adjustment brush, removal of skin blemishes and basic flyaway hair removal, but it costs only $1.5 per image. If you choose Advanced retouching, you will have to pay twice as much – $3 for adding skin softening and teeth/eyes whitening. For removing unnecessary objects, minimizing bags under the eyes, expanding the background, etc., it is better to order Custom retouching. However, it is difficult to find out the exact photo retouching rates per image for this service, as here it costs $0.67/min or $40/hr.
Wondering how to make your real estate photography more attention-grabbing? The best photo editing outsourcing services will definitely help you to enhance both interior and exterior of your building.
Real estate photo editing may not be as a popular as wedding post production services, however, this is a very important aspect of the work of real estate agents. That is why the quality of real estate image editing services plays an important role.
FixThePhoto is one of the professional photo editing companies you can trust. Here you can discuss with the photo retoucher every detail that you would like to change, remove or add. Moreover, the services that are included in Basic, Pro and High level retouching are really impressive. They prove that you can make a high-quality and professional-looking picture from an ordinary photo taken by a smartphone. If you only need to apply color correction, remove one small object or replace the view from the window, you can order Basic picture retouching for $2 and pay separately for the additional service. This way, you will not overpay.
While comparing FixThePhoto with Photographers Edit, you will notice that the price of the latter is lower but it offers fewer services. In addition, you will not find any examples of real estate photo editing here. If you only need color correction, straightening, cropping or something like that, I think that the results should be quite good, judging by the pictures provided on the site.
FixThePhoto and Photographers Edit pricing policy is slightly different depending on the services they offer. The color correction in FixThePhoto it is a little cheaper – $0.2 per image, while in Photographers Edit it is $0.24. When it comes to more advanced features, the second service is cheaper. The prices here range from $1.5 to $5 and more. In FixThePhoto, you will find image editing services from $2 to $100 per image. If consider that only photo manipulation and photo montage are such expensive, then the average price is a few dollars higher but the quality is so much better.
Both photo editing services for photographers have discounts for customers. FixThePhoto offers a discount from 15% to 50% for regular customers who made bulk orders. Go to the page of the service that interests you, and you will learn more about the discount you can expect.
