Charging the Right Amount for Restoration Work

Okay, any major questions on that one? This is all so charges. What do you charge for some, like this depends on the picture of the detail time. Oh, yeah, in fact, I will never give a quote on anything until I have seen it because you just never know. You know what people expect? Describe what they have for you, teo, work on. So I always want to see it and want to know what's the final print size is going to be small is going to be big because that determines how precise you need to be in restoring things and did they want it color? Do they want it? Black, black and white? What do they want it printed on so on so forth now, it's probably a good idea to have a base fee for, like, simple restoration, heavy restoration, extreme restoration. I I used to have a priceless like that, but I don't anymore I pretty much just do it by the hour, and I just I kind of khun given estimate because I've done enough of this, that I give him a ballpark idea of how much it'll be, because I know how long i...

t takes me to do that kind of thing that when you're starting out. Talk to do it by the hour because you might not be really skilled, might take you a long time, and you, you just don't even know how long it's going to take until you jump in. You like, so far over my head way, we've all been there, so I just started by the hour for me. I would look around it, what competitive pricing in your area, and just come up with a basic fee. When you first start doing this, yeah, you're probably not going to do great hourly wage in the beginning, but the more you do it, the better, the faster you will be more efficient.

This is a great course for someone interested in offering a photo restoration service, perhaps as a business opportunity. However, it does require an above average skill level in using Photoshop. I would strongly recommend Ben Willmore's course also offered here on CreativeLive first as a prerequisite before taking this course. Also, in the course, Suzette recommends a free color guide for faces, that can be obtained from her website, but I have tried and cannot find it at all. It would have been great if it was provided as course material for subscribers to this course! Anyone knowing where we can download the file she quotes: "ColorGuideFaces.jpg", please let us know.

Amazing! Suzette shows you techniques that are SO much simpler than you have used in the past to remove spots, cracks, and tears. Faster, more effective, and BETTER end results! The technique to colorize an old B&W photo was fabulous! I used to do handpainting black & whites by hand. With the skills Suzette shows you, you can now do this beautifully and easily in Photoshop. She uses restoration examples in this class, but the skills could be used with any new photos, as well. Thank you, Suzette!

Love Suzette's teaching style and she was very thorough in her explanations of each thing she does. I also bough Matt's restoration class, this one by far has more information although his was great also. Would like to see Suzette back on creative live again :)
