A lot of work goes into getting a photograph ready for use: Outside of the work that goes into setup, lighting, and framing, you might find the photo needs to be cropped to remove unwanted elements or resized to fit a layout. In some cases, the color or contrast might not be quite right, or you might want to add a bit of text. A photo editor can handle all of these tasks and more.
Photo editors work with software—most commonly Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom—to manipulate images. They can handle resizing images for print and the web, adjusting the dimensions while maximizing quality. They can also fine-tune the colors, alter them, or even convert a color photo to black and white or sepia. If you’re looking to crop your image in an unconventional way, such as with a curved edge or with the main figure jutting out past the background, a photo editor can help. If necessary, they can cut out the background all together, or merge several images into one. Photo editors on Upwork have the experience and expertise to modify details such as shadows and blemishes, resulting in stunning photos that work well for websites, brochures, flyers, web ads, and much more.

And we in-sourced to optimize employee competencies. Although each of these workflow evolutions were beneficial, they still limited us. Meet the new global workflow: cloud-sourcing.Read More
