Thanks for taking a look at this project.
It's extremely simple for someone who knows what they're doing... It is quite a lot of work, though.
Essentially we're copying a database. However, it must be manually handled and not automated.
Here is the breakdown:
- 9 regular text fields we can straight copy & paste
- 5 short list fields (must copy & paste and then separate each list item with a pipe ( | ); lists are short, usually 5 items each)
- 2 to 8 photos (must take screenshot, crop each photo, save with distinctive filename that relates to data table; all photos are same size and need to be cropped at exactly the same size; easy with photoshop or similar software; can lend you photoshop for project if requested; average number of photos is 4)
I believe the hardest part is the photos -- only because it is the most tedious.
We ESTIMATE there are over 4,000 records we need to copy. (We have no idea what the actual number is.)
This project is for THE FIRST 400 ONLY. Simple logic: we'll try a smaller project (but meaningful) and make sure everything goes well. As long as it does, we'll ask you to finish up the remainder of the project.
For simplicity and so there are no misunderstandings, I want you to honestly estimate how long it will take you and determine a price per record. Because we've been burned before on time deals, you will be bidding on a PRICE PER RECORD multiplied by 400. (We'd like you to keep the same price per record for the follow-up project as well, so think carefully about it.)
Again, this is simple work... And there is plenty of it.
WE ARE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT TIME. If you have multiple people that can handle this -- great! Please mention that and let us know your expected turn around.
Delivery: You may deliver this in an Excel spreadsheet, CSV file, or direct to our MySQL database -- Your choice. All photos will need to be delivered in a series of compressed archive files -- since there will be too many to email.
Thank you all for your interest! I sincerely appreciate it and look forward to getting this project going quickly!
Enjoy your day!
