I am looking for a mix of experience and value


We are a jewelry/gemstone marketplace with different artists. Each artist contributes product photos. Some of these product photos need a more professional background and thus background removal.

Currently we pay $0.75 per background removal. Each photo is delivered back as transparent png, black and white backgrounds. Black photos have a mirror effect, white photos have a "dropshadow" effect. Where needed a light gaussian is added to dropshadow or mirror.

The current guy we work with found more local (offline) work and has therefore no longer time to do this project, so we'd be looking for a team this time which can fit in seamlessly into our business processes and work with other team members.  Our current website will be replaced by a new website in August.

We work dropbox-centric only, and per artist have a separate dropbox folder. That is around 50 folders and in total 8 GB or something and growing.

CURRENT process (until late August):
That CURRENT (old website) process is as follow:
-- artist shares photos of their work with us in "to be uploaded on website" subfolder inside the folder they share with us.
-- quality controlled checks which photos need work
-- photo backgrounds "done" and add those together with the original photo you did in separate subfolder so upload team knows exactly which photos have been processed and to upload the processed photo, not original photo.

NEW process (after August)
For the NEW website we launch in August the process will be different: a script will strip backgrounds of photos during upload. A javascript script adds the dropshadow on our pages automatically for standardized presentation purposes.

Quality control has to happen after to see if strip was 100% and whether additional manual touch up is necessary.

We'd need to see some demos first.

Start your response with numbering in this order (any deviation: we will mark your application as "spam"):
1 -- please confirm you have 10 GB dropbox space
2  -- please confirm you can handle 50 different dropbox folders
3 -- please confirm agreement with $7.5 payment for 10 photos background removal, delivery with black, white backgrounds and transparent pngs
4 -- please confirm that you understand you'd be in charge of quality control of our photos and therefore are able to work in a team and speak sufficient fluent English.
