We are looking for somebody who would like to work with us on a continuous basis.
This first bid is for the first 800 images.
We have images that need some basic retouching (in average it should not take more than 30-50 seconds; some need 10 seconds, some 90 seconds). Wherever possible batch processing should be used (to save time and repetitive hand moves). We will pay 5 US cents for each accepted image.
For some context I am describing the process that worked quite well for us:
1) Download the images in CR2 format via Dropbox
2) Load the images into the Photoshop Camera RAW
a) correct orientation with L or R keys
b) crop where necessary (very rare)
b) correct white balance for all similar images with temperature and tint adjustments
3) open all images from Camera Raw into Photoshop
a) Auto Level for each picture
b) use white point or color balance for getting rid of color cast if still there
c) i) if there are only a few dirt or dust spots, or scratches, use ‘Spot Healing Brush Tool’
ii) if there is a whole area with a quite uniform background (no faces or special details); then you could use ‘the lasso tool’ and the Photoshop ‘dust and speckle filter’
iii) only if the image has large areas with dust/dirt particles you could use a special dust filter we provide you with. (otherwise it would be too much work with the ‘spot healing brush tool; or too blurry with the Photshop ‘dust and speckle filter); the Photoshop filter is too rough for the entire image (this should be set-up for batch-processing to save time and too many repetitive mouse-clicks (setting can be applied to the entire image). We found a standard setting works ok (the image will not be perfect after but ok enough for us); some few additional click of ‘Spot healing Brush tool’ might be necessary for strong dirt spots.
4) save images in TIFF
5) upload images to Dropbox
Since this is high-volume we understand you do not have the time for absolute perfection; the goal is as 'good as possible' with an average time of 30-50 seconds per image.
added to 2) in Camera Raw
d) edit exposure issues if any
