IS IMAGE EDITING IMPORTANT?

 

The unedited image (original image) is called a raw image. However, raw images will often suffer from some defects that make the image less than perfect, because there may be insufficient lighting, objects are arranged disproportionately, the product is reflective or the skin of the product, the model is not beautiful, ... There are many reasons to make your photo incomplete. That's why image editing software (post-production) was born to make photos more precise.

 

1/ CREATE PROFESSIONAL

Product image is the face of the brand. An image that has not been invested, has not been post-processed, will give customers a bad impression of product quality as well as trust. Try to imagine and put yourself in the position of the customer, do you want to buy a travel backpack when you see the product image is not tense, tight and standing?

As you can see, it is difficult for products with see-through materials to show the material in pictures, especially with 3D/Ghost shot product photography. With such special products, when worn on the mannequin, the see-through material will show the skin of the mannequin is not beautiful and needs to be edited in small details to remove the imperfections.

Or for products such as glasses, high-end cosmetics, watches,... all have reflective properties. The backstage part of the shoot can be reflected in the mirror of these types of products, and using retouch software will remove unnecessary images.

 

3/ EDIT, NOT “RENEW” COMPLETELY

A good photo is one that has sharp, clear colors, good contrast. But not everyone is a professional photographer. With certain types of cameras and inherent skills, it is more likely to produce bad photos. In this case, you need to use skills and photo editing software. However, there is one thing you should keep in mind: “Only edit what needs to be edited.” Not only product images, but any image that goes through too much post-producing also will affect the realism, making the image become much more "fake" than the real product. Therefore, you should not overdo the image editing methods too!

 

If you're working on a project, like designing a magazine ad, you'll typically want to use as high-quality stock photos as possible. But sometimes we don't have a choice, like when a client gives you a photo and asks you to make a design based on that photo. In these cases, you need to resort to image editing methods. However, not everyone has the ability to master the methods of photo editing quickly and accurately on their own. But don't worry, you can still use image editing services from in-house teams at a reasonable cost. Currently, on the market there are many companies and teams specializing in retouch, you can refer to it to choose a reputable and trusted place for them to do it instead of doing it yourself taking much time and not really effective.
