Jewelry Photo Retouching​

Professional Jewelry Retouching Service

Good jewelry photos show the design of the piece. The best photos, however, also show the sparkle of the gem.

The best way to attract attention is to use photos that reflect the clean lines that indicate the expertise of the hands that made your precious pieces. If your jewelry shines and sparkles in the photo, they will most likely do so in real life — and that’s what your customers want.

Paper Boat Creative’s jewelry photo editing services enhance the look of your photos, portraying the subjects in their best light. While DSLR cameras can capture the smallest details, they produce clinical-looking images. We make your photos look fancy with our professional editing magic.

We Make Your Job Easier with Jewelry Photo Retouching Services

Jewelry photography is tricky. Necklaces, rings and bracelets cannot stand upright on their own. The image only becomes dynamic when someone wears the piece or when photographers prop them up against something else. Photos with a model are good but some clients prefer to see flawless photos with nothing to distract the eye from the jewelry.

We produce photos that make your pieces stand out. Our team uses light and colour correction tools to make your jewelry shine brighter, enticing customers to fix their eyes on the piece — whether there is a model or not.  

High-End Jewelry Retouching

An idea may come to you well after your photo shoot, or you might discover much later that your shooting angle doesn’t flatter the Jewelry you’re photographing. In these situations, count on us to bring your creative vision to life.

Jewelry Shadow Creation

Shadows add dimension and depth to a 2D image. It takes a practised eye and extensive knowledge of Photoshop and Lightroom tools to produce shadows that can make jewelry photos look realistic and appealing.

Background Cleaning and Removal

Even the most thorough cleaning can’t guarantee that a piece of jewelry will look polished on a photograph. Smudges and scratches could still be visible and diminish its appeal whether in print or on screen. Our photo editing service can solve this problem.

Dust and Poor Reflection Removal

Apart from flaws in the facade of the gems and setting, dust and distracting reflections can also reduce the advertising potential of your photos. Trust us to pore over every inch of your pictures and polish them to be print- and website-ready.

Jewelry Color Correction and Editing

When your lighting isn’t up to scratch, trust that our post-production services will put everything to rights. We will consult with you to ensure that we get the perfect color, shade and brilliance of the jewelry you photographed.

Jewelry Photo Enhancement

Your photos should please not only your clients but also their customers. From the texture of the jewelry to the sparkle of the stones, a product photo must effectively convey its value and appeal. You can achieve this through our editing service for jewelry photos.

Our Jewelry Photo Editing Services​

The Paper Boat Creative team is adept at making jewelry photos look as realistic as possible. We pay attention to the tiniest details, from the clarity of the filigree to the way the light bounces off the metal or precious stone. We aim for realistic results, but we make sure to highlight the best features of every piece of jewelry.

Dust & Scratch Cleaning
  • Even brand new products will always attract micro dust, and the surface may still have scratches on it, so we fix it
  • Under studio photo lighting, which can be very strong, even the tiniest split of a hair line can be seen through a sharp camera lens, so through we do capture a lot of great detail in the picture, we also capture a lot of unwanted detail
Diamond Polishing
  • Diamonds are unique in the way they shine, and they react with an almost rainbow effect when you turn it under pure sunlight. Under UV light some diamonds even shine a little bit blue
  • Often in photography, the image doesn’t do justice to the actual object. Too much light will make the diamond detail blow out to become too white, and too little light may not capture the sparkle and intricate cuts of the particular stone
  • We can edit diamonds and any other precious or semi precious stone
Jewelry Background Removal
  • Online jewelry shops normally want to display their items floating, but in order to create the right effect, we need to isolate out the background
  • Earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings normally have some kind of support, whether it’s a plastic mannequin, a see through box or stand, or even some glue
  • We remove all the unwanted objects so that the item can be presented on its own, as if it’s standing upright without any support
Recolouring of Gold and Silver
  • Many online jewelry shops offer bespoke designs and sizes for their products, and we make it easier for the customer to visualize the item they would like to buy
  • We can convert white gold metal items into rose gold, silver, platinum, gold plated or 24 karat gold
  • We can keep the metal colours consistent across the entire collection so that customers may easily mix and match pieces and know that their end product will look just like the photo
Repainting shine on metal
  • The metal part of the jewelry can attract a lot of unwanted reflections, such as the reflection of the photographer, the background and any color that might be within 3 meters of the object
  • The metal then doesn’t look smooth or shiny, but rather acts like a mirror for the surrounding space
  • We fix that by manually repainting the shine back in the metal, keeping its natural texture and luminosity, while eliminating distracting elements
Creative Jewelry Edits
  • We also do high end editorial edits for jewelry magazines and shops
  • Normally for editorial work, the resolution is anywhere between 5000 to 10,000 pixels wide, which is big enough to print on a large poster. In comparison, e-commerce photos are typically a maximum of 900 pixels wide
  • The creative jewelry edits normally need more drama, more play on shadow and light, and we work closely with you to get the right mood for the layout

Showing Jewelry in the Best Light Possible

Artificial light could dull the glimmer of the stone or reduce the lustre of polished silver, gold, and aluminium. Excessively bright natural light, meanwhile, could overexpose the photo and conceal the best features of the jewelry. We can correct these flaws so that they don’t detract from the overall beauty of the pieces.

When your photographing conditions are less than ideal, you have our services to fall back on. Our jewelry photo retouching services are designed to bring out the best in the jewelry photos you take. Whether they are for print, Internet marketing or e-commerce websites, the images we retouch can catch the eye of the target audiences.

Impress your clients with our high-end photo editing techniques.

A Peek into Our Jewelry Photo Retouching Services

Our clients always ask us about our retouching services. Some of them say to us, It’s so detailed! It must have taken a hundred steps before you perfected the image!”

On the contrary, our process has only five steps. How then does it still manage to deliver images that stand out with brilliance? Simple, our process — which we’ve put much thought into during its inception — is just that great.

1. Dust Cleaning

Our jewelry photo retouching starts with a digital sweep of the stone and removal of scratches and dust. It is normal for the dust to cling on to all jewelry pieces. Don’t worry; we’ll fix it on photoshop.

2. Base Level Adjustments

After clearing the flaws in the photo, we play with some photoshop settings such as curves, levels, saturation, hue and selective color to edit the stone without compromising the image’s integrity.

3. Digital Masking

We then inspect the cuts to see how we can enhance it. We select them one by one to either brighten up or paint over

4. Colour Preservation

Our photo editors normally add color manually and paint the gem to emphasize the shiny cuts of the stone.

5. Final Adjustments

We go over the photos again and make final adjustments before we show our work to you. If you have additional requests, we attend to them immediately.

How Long Does It Take To Do Jewelry Retouching

Getting the first diamond edited for online shops is normally the longest since we have to wait for the exact style needed. It can take about 3 – 5 hours. But then, when we apply that same jewelry retouching technique manually to the other similar images it can be reduced to about 2 – 2.5 hours.
