Step 1: Choose photo editing services for your quote
Let us know what kinds of edits you need by selecting the services from the list. Each service has its own pricing. Telling us the photo editing service you need helps us prepare an accurate quote and mitigate back-and-forth so you can get your images faster. You can choose one or multiple image editing services for your quote.
If you’re not sure which image editing service you need, click on the eye icon next to each service to see a description with more information and a sample image.
Step 2: Select the editing complexity
Next you’ll need to tell us how complicated and complex your editing needs are.
Click View More to get help choosing the complexity level for your edits. If your images have different levels of complexity, choose the average or give us your best guess—every quote is reviewed by someone from our team, so we’ll figure it out.
Some photo editing services have subcategories, so you’ll need to select which describes your needs. Shadow, for example, has five subcategories for different types of drop shadow and reflection editing needs.
If you’re unsure, you can always click the eye icon to view examples.
Step 3: Set a deadline
Next, let us know when you need your edited images back.
Choose from six options, each with its own pricing. The faster you need your edits, the more your project will cost. If you have time, you can reduce your editing costs by giving us 96 hours or more.
Step 4: Choose our complementary services
The next step is optional. Select the checkbox next to the free Add-on services you want:
- Straighten crop and set margin: helpful for image cropping standardization on marketplaces like Amazon and Walmart
- Resize images: helpful for photo size standardization for large batches of images
Both of these optional image editing services are added at no extra cost.
Step 5: Tell us how many images you need edited
Next, let us know how many images you need edited. You can either input this number manually or use the +/- icon.
Step 6: Upload your images
Next, it’s time to upload your images so our team can review your request and work on your quote.
You can drag and drop, paste, or use the file selector to upload your images to the quote request form. JPG is preferred, but you can also use PSD, TIFF, PNG, NEF, RAW, CR2, DNG, or PDF files.
Step 7: Tell us where to send your quote
Next, let us know who you are and where to send your quote by entering your contact information in the corresponding form fields.
Step 8: Preview your quote
Scroll to the bottom to review your quote request to see a preview of your estimated price. The price shown is only an estimate. You’ll receive an official quote from the Path team once we’ve reviewed everything by hand.
You can review your order selections by clicking on the i (information) next to the estimated total.
