Outsource Stock Photo Retouching Services

Stock Photo Retouching Services

Get your raw stock images flawlessly retouched and enhanced by an experienced team of photo editors at FWS at a fraction of the cost

Stock photos drive the creative world. There are many websites dedicated to creating and acting as a repository for stock images, which are licensed photographs or illustrations generally used for creative projects, which then go on to adorn websites, offline marketing paraphernalia, handouts, etc. Stock photographs can be instantly bought and downloaded online, and in many cases, reduce the need for a photographer altogether.

At the same time, thousands of businesses the world over might be using the same stock photo on their websites, and including the same might not reflect the professional outlook that your business desires. Stock photos are sometimes over-produced and look too fake in their presentation, and our stock photo retouching services aim to solve this pain point by helping create unique compositions of your existing stock images, such that you can use a single image multiple times over without them looking similar.

Stock Photo Editing Services - Our Key Differentiators

When it comes to editing stock photos, we ensure that every requirement of yours is met with while making sure all the stock photos have the same kind of quality you expect from a photographer. In order to achieve this, we provide a whole suite of solutions which allow us to stand apart from our competitors. Our key differentiators include -

  1. Standard/RAW Processing

    Standard Raw Processing

    Our hierarchical processes ensure we can work equally well on both RAW or standard images, helping adjust color balance, reduce noise, sharpen and perform contrast improvement along with other minor adjustments.

  2. Stock Photo Cleaning and Cut-Outs

    Stock Photo Cleaning Cut Outs

    Once we have taken the image through one round of standard processing, we help to clean the background in the image, separating the foreground objects, and then replacing this background with something else entirely. This allows you to use highly targeted and relevant images where the background changes based on the topical nature of the design required.

  3. Granular Retouching

    Granular Retouching

    We take your image through a round of granular retouching based on your needs, which pay attention to the minute details like the contours of a body, special hair look, etc., providing adjustments which heavily impact the final look and feel of the stock photo.

  4. Stock Photo Rejuvenation

    Stock Photo Rejuvenation

    We can restore stock photos which have multiple areas of focus, reduce excessive noise, and sharpen the details as well.

  5. Stock Photo Overhaul

    Stock Photo Overhaul

    We perform high-quality image manipulation to change existing images into something completely new. From changing a persons' head to adding new objects, alter existing light, etc. we can do it all.

  6. Pre-press Services
