PHOTO EDITING - Photoshop & Lightroom EXPERT
If you do not know how to layer (the windows) to make area specific adjustments, do not take the test.... LAYERING IS REQUIRED AND THE ONLY WAY TO CREATE A NICE IMAGE.
I WILL PAY $10 TO THE 1ST THREE (3) PEOPLE WHO RETURN THE TEST IMAGES THAT LOOK EQUAL TO OR BETTER THAN THE FINAL IMAGES I INCLUDED IN THE DOWNLOAD. ONLY THE 1ST THREE (3) WHO SUCCESSFULLY PASS THE 1st TEST... PLUS WE WILL ALSO DO THE 2ND PAID TEST.
I am in need of two or three individuals to perform Photo Editing services on Real Estate (homes) photography. This will include COLOR CORRECTIONS, LAYERING WINDOWS to adjust lighting inside/outside, Brightness/Contrast Correction, etc. THIS IS AN ONGOING business/job… meaning I am looking for someone who will be working with me a year or two or three from now… and can do 3 to 5 jobs a week. I am not looking for consistent, reliable, skilled individuals who can do the work.
Pay is approximately $1 per image ($25 to $45 per property)… some images will take 5 minutes (outdoor images) while some images may take 30 minutes (indoor images require layering windows)… it should average out to about 3 to 6 hours per property, depending on image quantity.
I photograph homes that are available for sale. The final images are used on the Internet and for brochures and other marketing materials to sell homes. I NEED HIGH QUALITY REALISTIC EDITING - IMAGES MUST LOOK GREAT. AGAIN.... REALISTC, NATURAL LOOKING IMAGES.
You should be able to handle 3 to 5 projects a week with 24 to 48 hour turnaround time. Each project will be between 25 to 45 High Dynamic Range (HDR) images. The person(s) MUST BE an expert with Photoshop CS5/6 and Lightroom/Aperture (or Camera RAW). The job is to take my HDR processed images and correct color, brightness, saturation, hues and so on. In many cases, the windows of the home will need to be layered so that the brightness and colors can be adjusted, without affecting the other layers (increase the brightness inside of the house without increasing the brightness outside). I edit the images now and it takes me, a Photoshop/Lightroom novice, 4 to 7 hours to edit each set. If you are a Photoshop/Lightroom expert, you should be able to eventually do it in 3 to 6 hours.
This is not an easy job for most. In my other postings of this job, it was unsuccessful. People would return the test images that were no way even close to the final images I included in the downloadable test. THIS JUST TELLS ME THAT YOUR VISION OF QUALITY AND MY VISION OF QUALITY ARE VERY FAR APART.
All they did was waste their transmission time sending the images back. The FOUR images you send back to me MUST BE AS GOOD AS OR BETTER than the final images I included. DO NOT SEND ANY IMAGES BACK UNTIL YOU HAVE COMPLETED ALL FOUR (4).
I will delete (I won't even look) any that do not include the four images. If you are capable of this position, please download the following instructions, HDR images and my final images for you to compare to:
Once you have worked on the FOUR (4) images AND HAVE COMPARED THEM TO MY FINAL IMAGES (INCLUDED), if they are as good as or better than mine, please send back ALL FOUR (4) FULL SIZED UNSHARPENED UNCOMPRESSED .JPG’s back to my dropbox:
I will need full sized uncompressed .jpg UNSHARPENED HIGHEST QUALITY images back. I will not be using the images for anything other than for this test so you may watermark the images if you wish. Once I find one or two individuals who can do as good a or better than my work (SEE MY FINAL IMAGES), I will send you a 2nd test of a complete property and I will pay you for the test.
In the 2nd test I will NOT include final images so you will be on your own. That 2nd test is more critical and will determine if we will be working together in a year.
AGAIN, I am looking for individual(s) that can do BETTER THAN WHAT I CAN DO (see my FINAL examples).
Please make sure you include the name you used on odesk.
