Requirements for the Image Retouching and Clipping Project

Reaching out to our team at SmartPHOTOeditors (SPE) via online inquiry, the client presented a project that demanded professional retouching of images of women’s clothing. Some of the images were blemished by dust or wrinkles that needed to be smoothened out and removed for a more polished finish. The images were destined for online advertising. The client supplied us with the original images of the clothing in JPEG format.

This project necessitated a team of two skilled photo editors, working on a volume of 3000 JPEG images and 3000 PSD images, over a period of 15 days.

Challenges Overcome by SPE’s Image Clipping Team

While executing this project, the key challenges arose from the intricate detail needed for each image. As each image had to be of a specific size and style, we had to manually crop the details individually using Photoshop. This affected our pace of delivery.

The Process Our Image Clipping Team Followed

In order to ensure that our team’s output maintained our standard for excellence, we used a step-by-step approach to combat the challenges with which we were faced. Our process was as follows:

  • We began with a trial period, requested by the client, which involved completing 10 provided images over 6 hours.
  • Once completed and accepted by the client, they sent us the images that required editing, which we then sorted into the order of process.
  • We then started manual cropping and retouching of each image, after which we added a white background, as per the instruction provided by the client.
  • We used the Liquify tool in Photoshop to straighten the apparel and provide the required final finish.
  • Once completed, we saved the images into two formats (JPEG and PSD) and sent the finished batches back to the client for a final inspection and approval.
