24+ Points at a time.
Having a DSLR camera or iPhone camera isn't enough when marketing a property. Many times, it actually has a negative effect on marketing efforts. I believe, 50% of the quality work gets completed on-site, and the other 50% in post-processing. Image enhancement is the procedure of customizing and improving digital images in order to get a more suitable and desirable final product. It is my 24+ point system which I use for each project. The end result provides a wonderful and inviting presentation of the properties for sale whether it's to be marketed online or used for print. We realize that in the real estate, commercial & hotelier industries, all we have is our reputation. Why not make it a lasting impression and do our sellers and clients right?
With our real estate photo editing expertise, we consistently deliver flawless images, usually the following day and price the project competitively to ensure we meet our goal of changing the industry standard. We work meticulously and look into the details of each image to improve quality and marketability. When we speak about image quality, we are referring to the color precision, exact brightness, flawless background removal or alteration, accurate adjustments and many other post-editing techniques.
In addition, image editing also includes path clipping and masking to obtain the desired results that our clients would love to present. Some benefits our clients receive when they hire us, is the promise that every image will get a sky replacement if needed, perfect window exposures, TV image inserts, fireplace flame inserts and minor item removal if needed. Also, every photo package receives a Day-To-Dusk/Twilight "Hero" Image to stand our from the competition and attract viewers. Please call us to discuss any particular requests you might want or need for your next listing.
Flash or HDR PROCESSING
Flash or HDR processing will add a more dramatic range to your photo to create an image more like what your eyes see than what the camera captures, while replacing the indoor windows means you can showcase both the interior and the view out the window.
Framed Listings shoots using flash. This will ensure you magazine quality images. Most RE Photographers shoot and deliver in HDR, we do not!
White balancing allows objects that are white in person to be rendered white in the photo so the property can be shown in its best light. White balancing will remove yellowed or off-white discolouration and create a bright, crisp image.
Image sharpening is an important process in ensuring your photos are top quality with a professional finish. Sharpening the image will emphasise texture and improve the overall quality of your photo. This is especially important when shooting for print and interior design magazines.
VERTICAL & HORIZONTAL STRAIGHTENING
A great photo is all about composition. An image with a wonky horizon can make a photo look unprofessional, while incorrect vertical lines can make an image look distorted or as if the walls are leaning backwards. Correcting these issues will make for a photo that is pleasing to the eye.
LENS DISTORTION REMOVAL
Even when shooting with professional equipment, distortion occurs as the wide angle lens tries to squeeze as much into the photo frame as possible. As a result, straight lines will be visibly curved. This can be rectified and will ensure the walls are straight.
BRIGHTNESS & CONTRAST ADJUSTMENT
A bright photo with the correct contrast is great to look at and more likely to draw a potential buyer’s attention. Adjusting these elements will create depth, making the photo more engaging and inviting the viewer into the image.
Don’t let a gloomy day ruin your photos. We will replace a dark sky with a beautiful sunset or clear, blue skies to show potential buyers just how stunning the view can be in sunny Florida. All images receive a blue sky if needed for no additional charge.
LAWN ENHANCEMENT, REPAIR OR REPLACE
A perfect lawn is important when selling a home because it adds to the curb appeal. Repairing a lawn that may be a little brown from a lack of rain or replacing sections can show potential buyers just how great the lawn can be. I offer this service based on realtor's discretion only.
Tone adjustment is a great tool to add a dramatic effect to an image or a light mood, depending on the type of photo. When it comes to selling property, the correct tone will help an image appear bright and welcoming.
TV SCREEN REPLACEMENT
While TVs have made great advances in their look, a black box is unappealing in a beautiful lounge room, so replacing the blank screen with a beautiful image can really enhance the photo and the mood of the room. It is also a great way to hide any unwanted reflections that may be on the screen, such as a flash or other interior lights.
DUST SPOT REMOVAL
Dust can be hard to spot on a lens, especially the small lens of a smart phone. But dust spots that can blur your photo or leave a mark can be removed to help create a perfect photo.
ADDING FIRE TO FIREPLACES
Show just how cosy and inviting a room can be by adding a warming fire in the fireplace. Adding a fire will grab the viewer’s attention and is likely to evoke homely feelings of comfort.
TURN ON LIGHTING
Whether it is interior or exterior lighting, pool or garden lights, turning on the lighting in a property photo will create a warm and welcoming feeling. Let your listing stand out from the rest and get more views.
DAY-TO-DUSK/TWILIGHT included IN EACH PHOTO PACKAGE
Homes presented at dusk are perceived to be more beautiful, romantic and eye-catching which can lead to a higher sales price.
Dusk is a beautiful time of the day but is notoriously hard to photograph. Let me take your external property photo from day to dusk and help you sell your listing faster by showcasing an amazing hero shot.
BED WRINKLES REMOVAL
A bed cover and/or sheets with wrinkles distracts the viewer from the actual space of the room. We use a method in Adobe Photoshop to blur the wrinkles when needed.
