Working with clipping path or photo cut out is a time consuming process. Some photo might take 5, 10, 20 or even 45+ minutes to clip. If we consider the cost of an in-house employee hour, then we can easily figure out how much it cost us to do clipping path or photo cut out in-house.

Different country has different social standards and per capita income. Developed countries like USA and Canada, no skilled Photoshop operator will work for any less than $20 / hour. If you add the cost of the computer workstation, office space, employee benefits, etc, an in-house employee can end up costing the company as much as $50 / hour.

What type of photo editing services you need?

If you are in the business where you need to publish product photos online so that your potential buyers can see the product photo before making a purchase decision, there is a very good chance that you may end up needing some photo editing service, out of all the services in the photo editing area, the most common service is the Clipping path / photo cut out (bilder freistellen, détourage photo) service.

Reason is very simple. If you have a good camera and a professional studio, you can take good quality high resolution photos of your product that will not require any retouching. However, no matter how good quality your images are, one thing all pictures will have is the background. To make these photos web worthy, you will need to remove the background. They way the background is removed is by using Clipping path / photo cut out (bilder freistellen, détourage photo) and isolating the product from the image or from the background.

There are all kinds of  Clipping path / photo cut out (bilder freistellen, détourage photo) services out there. You will find service providers that are charging pennies for clipping images. And you will find photo editing companies charging $20 or even $50 per edit where your offshore outsourcing company is charging less that a dollar.

So why this huge difference?

Reason is not hard to understand either. Photo retouching companies that are based and operated out of developed countries have high operating cost. Employee salary, office cost and all other business expenses make the cost to go high and these developed countries companies will have to charge their clients accordingly.

Where on the other hand, there are some teenagers who are operating out of their parent home in a developing country do not have any business expense. Cost of living in the developing country is also lot lower than that of a developed country. Whatever a teenager from a poor country can get for his job is 100% bonus for him/her.

Quality and services along with communication is whole different ball game by the way. If you elect to get your work done for pennies, it is given that you will have to compromise on the communication, service and delivery time. You just cant expect the same level of communication, service and quality for pennies.

So at the end of the day you will have to decide whether it is the service, quality and communication you need along with timely delivery or it is the low cost that appeals to you most.

Why Jewelry photography is so difficult?

jewelry photographerJewelry photography is unlike any other photography. When dealing with live models or landscape or other big objects, a photographer have option to shoot them from distance. Sometimes a photographer shots some pictures from very far away, even lime away.

Jewelry photography is not so. In order to take a jewelry photograph, a jewelry photographer needs to get up-close and personal. Since they are all small objects, in some cases really really tiny, a jewelry photographer needs to be very close to take those pictures. Even being close sometimes doesn’t work. Use of special camera and macro lens comes into play.

Cameras that are auto set or standard digital camera are no good in taking jewelry photographs. A good SLR camera that has macro setting is a bare minimum. Use of macro lens is also a must in taking these photos. A jewelry photographer quickly realizes that adjusting the lens zoom to being up the jewelry item close doesn’t cut it. The object gets out of focus or doesn’t catch all the details.

jewelry photographyA good jewelry photographer must know how to use the macro lens and macro setting properly, how to adjust to lights, how to pay attention to specific stones and metals to bring out the true color and clarity.

Paying attention to all these details makes jewelry photography so difficult.

And after taking those difficult shots, the job is not quite over. The images taken then need to be retouched to make the web friendly. Joolo.com is a good place where you can get your jewelry images retouched at competitive cost.
