Please note that it is critical that your products be shipped in excellent condition, as all products are shot as-is, flaws included. We recommend inspecting your products by hand and sending multiple products whenever possible. If you require packaging shots, we highly recommend sending ‘flat’ versions of your packaging, as packaging is often damaged in shipping.
What does "minor retouching" include? – Our base prices for product photography include minor retouching. We will perform minor editing, color correction, and remove minor dust spots. If your product requires additional time, we will contact you to approve the extra cost. We will provide you with a cost estimate. The fee is based on $80 an hour rate, billed in 15-minute increments.
Advanced Retouching: Personalized pricing – We ask that your products be delivered in photo-ready condition, but we can provide advanced retouching to repair deep scratches, mis-aligned labels, touch up of printing imperfections on labels, scuffs or other imperfections. If you have a prototype or a one-off factory molded sample, please contact us for custom photo retouching options.
What if my product requires assembly? – We include minor cleaning and simple assembly in our base price per photo. If you have a product that requires extensive assembly, please let us know so we can provide you with as accurate a quote as possible. For any products that require detailed cleaning, polishing and major assembly, we charge $100/hour in 15-minute increments.
What’s a hero shot? A hero shot is our top white background service which includes everything in our core service above but with significantly higher resolution, extensive additional touch-up, and transparencies.
How much larger are the images? Hero Shots are 5760 × 3480 pixels (before cropping) and are delivered in a layered tiff file. This adds up to a 3x increase in image size over our standard photos for maximum possible clarity.
What extra touch-up will you perform? Often, product prototypes and manufacturing samples contain minor defects not representative of the final product. Level 2 Retouching – our hero shots go far beyond our standard service in correcting many manufacturing errors such as crooked labels, mold seams, misaligned gaps, damaged box corners, and much more.
When should I order hero shots over standard product photos? We recommend hero shots for use on Amazon FBA as the primary image in your listing. We also recommend hero shots any time an image needs to be extremely high resolution or when it will receive intense scrutiny such as with product packaging.
Most cosmetic products used as a primary images on your web site should be ordered as HERO SHOTS as they minimally require Level 2 photo retouching.
