What is the difference between the editing levels?


EXPRESS editing is handled by the first available editor (as opposed to your own assigned editor, and the images are edited using our in-house approach, which is a clean, simple, bright & airy look. We will make adjustments to all the main sliders (white balance, exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, whites, blacks, clarity, vibrance, saturation), and set our default values for HSL, Sharpening, and Noise Reduction. 

PORTFOLIO editing is our highest tier, which consists of editing using Smart Object layers in Photoshop, to bring out the very best out of part of an image. This results in a dynamic tonal range, and bold colours (or high contrast B&W with a lot of detail). We will also do some basic skin retouching, and minor object removal, to really make the image shine. This his a highly defined style, and we encourage you to look at our sample images to get a good idea of what the editing will look like. 


BASIC editing consists of adjustments to the main sliders (white balance, exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, whites, blacks, clarity, vibrance, saturation). If needed, we will also apply blanket settings to the curve, split toning, lens correction, vignette, noise reduction, sharpening. If needed, we will also tweak the HSL values on various sequences.
Cropping can be added for $0.05 per image (on all images)

BASIC+ editing consists of the same adjustments as BASIC, with the addition of burning & dodging, as well as cropping if requested (included on this level)
Basic skin retouching (spot removal and light skin softening) can also be added for $0.75 per image.
