The client was a well-known photography company based in Belgium. As an established business that caters to a wide range of photography services, the client was fortified with an excellent team of creative photographers.
What the client needed from us?
The client approached several photo editing companies but decided to choose us because the project needed the support of an experienced and professional image stitching service provider. The requirement of the client was to stitch over 417 photographs together that could form a final image about 420 meters long.
The challenges we faced
The basic challenge was to offer post processing for a huge volume of images in a really swift turnaround time. The client would upload 150-250 folders on the FTP every day and every folder would contain 30-35 images.
There is nearly 10-12 hours of time difference between India and US. The client demanded a 24/7 involvement for this project. We had many projects from several other clients and each of them had their own deadlines.
How we addressed the challenges professionally
As this was a big project, literally by the size of it, we knew we had to improvise and create an effective strategy if we have to meet the deadline. We carefully analyzed the situation and came up with the certain solutions to meet the challenges.
Since the project was huge, we decided to provide a sample of processed images to the client to understand the quality expectation of the client. After the sample was approved and specific quality expectations were given by the client, we decided to go at the project.
We quickly constituted a team of three image stitching professionals to carry out the project. As there was a definite sequencing for the pictures, we decided to break down the entire work among the team members. Each one was detailed the accountabilities and given some tips by seniors at the helm of our photo editing department.
We thought it would be only befitting if we could, deliver the work 7 days prior to the deadline so as to give us enough time to incorporate any sort of tweaking suggestions or changes required by the client after submitting the processed images; this would be greatly helpful for the client.
We sought to carry out the work of panoramic image stitching in batches, and we set a target for the team to carry out the stitching of about 18 pictures a day. Upon meeting the target daily, it would give us a breathable time to carry out the assignment as per the internal scheduling we had set for us.
As we had to stitch imageries that were complex and large, our image editing experts made great use of professional imaging editing tools such as PTGUI and Adobe Photoshop, primarily. Since the size of the photographs was huge, as explained before, we had to create an FTP to facilitate better, faster and efficient image transfer and upload with the client.
We also decided to convene a meeting every 4th day of the project to analyze the progress of the assignment and ensure the quality of the processed images. This helped us be assured that we are proceeding in the right direction with needed pace.
How the assignment was finished
As we had expected, we were able to finish the assignment 5 days before the timeframe given to us by the client. After the final submission, the client had a few tweaking suggestions to some of the images. We were able to quickly process the same, as all the editing and tweaking tasks suggested by the client were minor.
The result and how the client liked it
As we finished this huge project that we had undertaken, the client was really happy with the services delivered and wrote for us an invaluable photo editing customer testimonial. They were extremely satisfied for how we were keen on meeting all their requirements, project deliverable precisely and flawlessly.
