We are looking to expand our team of photo-designers. You will be able to work on your own schedule, and claim jobs from a pool of work continuously as they are available.
Krome Studio has developed a custom system, in conjunction with Upwork, so you can very efficiently claim photo editing jobs. The system automatically pays you when the reviewer team accepts your photo. Once you are certified you can start claiming jobs and start making money - no need to look for jobs, apply, negotiate rates, etc. from that point on.
The photos can be challenging! We often receive low resolution photos from smartphones and it is our job to help make them better and make peoples fantasy and ideas about their photos come to life. MUST BE GOOD AT ACHIEVING REALISM. We will offer some guidance on how to work with low resolution photos, but experience with smartphone photos and non-professional photos is an advantage.
We have certification Levels 1, 2 and 3.
If we decide to interview you, you will be given a test with a set of 7 photos to demonstrate your ability to use these editing techniques.
Please know how to:
- Reduce Noise (this is key for iPhone photos, which are often low res and noisy!)
