Stock Photo Retouching and Keywording

I am a photographer in the United States. I sell stock photography and am interested in finding a resource to retouch, keyword and prepare digital images for me. That way I can spend more time shooting. :-)

I have attached a small JPEG file with a series of thumbnails to show the type of images I typically shoot. About 90% of my work is with people, but I do other subjects as well on occasion.

In a typical month I may have between 100 and 500 images needing retouching and preparation.

I would provide high-resolution JPEG images via an FTP site provided by the artist...and ask to have the completed files returned to me via FTP. If the artists doesn't currently have an FTP site or access, we could work that out.

I supply several microstock and midstock photo agencies, so images must conform to the standards of sites like IStock, Shutterstock, etc.

I would provide the images with basic settings adjusted through Lightroom. I am looking for the following services:

+Cleaning up sensor spots, dust, etc.

+Setting the curves and levels for a dynamic shot

+Removing distracting background objects

+Cleaning up blemishes and enhancing eyes, teeth, etc.

+Various other services on a per-image basis

+Some noise reduction as needed (particularly in skies)

No sharpening...I would handle any sharpening or special filtration after the files had been returned.

Experience providing images successfully to microstock sites will be an advantage. However, I am willing to provide guidance. I use IStock as my baseline for quality. They are very picky...so if they will accept an image, the rest of the sites generally will, too. If you are interested, but unsure, consider taking the IStock tutorial on why images can be declined. It is at their website.

Microstock sales, as you may know, yield very small returns and I make my money by selling many photos in bulk. So price is a big issue for me. I need to do this balancing outside cost while maintaining a very high level of quality.

Please create your bid to include preparing, retouching and keywording batches of 25 images. Figure that some will be more difficult than others, so please provide a per-image cost you can live with...even on the tougher ones.

Thank you.
