Hi All,
Looking for insight on vendor’s hourly retouching rates - doing some research because I think our current vendor is too high. I’ve seen anywhere from $118/hour to $225/hour for basic clean-up, masking, etc. Thanks!!

We usually negotiate a rate range for a per image delivery.

This is my experience as well

It’s usually per image, but it’s your vendors right to bill using whatever metric they want if you approve the estimate! $200/hr isn’t an unreasonable rate for a post-production service if you compare it to the fact that there are plenty of other services (record and mix for example ) that cost $500+ an hour, or The Mill and some of the big color shops charging $1500+ an hour.

Also if you’re saying retouching but you mean motion cleanup (aka Flame), that rate range is totally reasonable.

I take it you don’t mean any design or creative work. You just mean image cleanup or adding / removing artefacts from the pic? Obviously it depends on the agency as if it’s a top creative agency that charge say $1000 an hour for creative work they are gonna still charge a fortune just for basic work. You would be better off finding a freelancer who works from home with a few years under their belt. They will work really hard for $50 an hour. Do great work and think it’s Christmas.

It depends on your vendor. They can negotiate or set it per image. The latter is much common.
