Need raw images of products (typically jars and bottles) to be edited such that I have color corrected silhouette-style trim of the image in PSD and GIF or JPG.? Details on the exact process required are provided.
**After product image is trimmed, the raw image and edited images? will need to be saved? with new names.? I will provide the naming convention, but the files will be provided to you as "DSC_####".? I will provide a straight forward table that will identify what? each initial "DSC_####" file name should be renamed to.
**Each raw image is about 5MB.? Each raw image will need to be loaded, **light adjusted** (for tugsten), **color corrected** (there is a color card included in the background of? each photo to? set back, grey and white levels), item will need to be **carefully trimmed** using the pen tool to include accurate? trimming along product? curves.? Note: DO NOT trim? slight curves as most products have using a 90 degree corner...a curve should be represented as a curve.? Please use some? judgement in trimming the item accurately as some curves are the result of product container imperfections rather than the true shape of the container.? In any result, the end result of the trimmed item should be an near-exact trim of the shape of the items including curves, ridges, and stair-step shapes around lids,? etc. as the item is intended to appear.
**Saving Edited Images / Image Types**
In addtion to the renamed raw file, I will need 1 PSD saved with dimensions of 700 pixles on the longest side with the same name as provided in the renaming table, 1 GIF saved? as 110x110 pixels with the 110x110 square filled in with 255 white and with the naming extention? "sml" added to the base? file name and, and 1 GIF saved as 220x220 pixels with the 110x110 square filled in with 255 white and with the naming extension "[url removed, login to view]" added to the base file name.
**Quality Check Process for First 25 Images**
I will require send an initial set of? 5 images? that you should edit and then stop to enable me to check and provide? feedback before proceeding.? Next I will provide a second set of 20 more product images? that I will? want you to edit and that I will check? before proceeding.? After that, I will leave you to complete the balance of the full first set of? 258 images, including the first 25 images that will be quality checked up front.
I would like to be able to use you to edit more pictures at a later date (possibly early 2010) if necessary.? These products may number into the several hundred if not thousands.? For now, please bid only on this first set of 258.
**Files may be delivered to you via email or FTP download.? ? I will provide an FTP site for you to? upload? completed images (PSD, JPEGS, etc.)? to.
**Image Samples (for bidding purposes only)
**For bidding purposes, you can see some image samples at verlenes.com.? These image samples represent the 110x110 and 220x220 gifs.
