Post-Processing Prices

The costs for all Post-Processing work are calculated at an extremely competitive hourly rate. In order to both simplify the charging process and to provide you with an indication of the cost before you submit your work we have, where possible, calculated average figures for some of the standard packages. This allows you to enter in the total number of images you will be submitting and receive a price immediately. It should be noted that these are based on averages with some allowance for a limited number of “problem images”, eye-openings, etc. Where there is likely to be a significant amount of extra work that will need to be charged for you will be informed before any extra work is undertaken, giving you the opportunity to decline/authorise the increased cost.

For work where it is impossible to fix a price before submission, the operator will provide you with an estimate, once they have seen the image(s). This estimate will normally consist of an upper and lower figure. Usually, it is hoped that the final cost will be closer to the lower figure, however, should the time required to complete the work exceed the estimate you will not pay any more than the upper figure. Any discrepancy will be down to Pro-Darkroom to absorb.
