How Much is Your Time Worth? £10 Per Hour? £50 Per Hour? More?
“Without a doubt, this is the BEST Photoshop app/tool I have used to date!”
Why you need it…
Photoshop Autoloader – In any business whether full or part time, your time IS money no matter how you look at it. Any time spent on meaningless tasks is time that could have been better spent on being more productive…marketing, updating websites, practicing, studying etc.
Let’s take an average wedding
Say I earn a net figure of £1000 from one wedding. Thinking that I earned that for the 8 hours I was in attendance is a little naive. You have to factor in the travelling time, the time spent with the couple before hand, the processing of images, the album creation and so on.
Taking that into account, let’s say a typical weddings eats up 20 hours of my time, start to finish. That gives me a profit of £50 per hour…not bad!
The next thing to do is to work out how to reduce that time to give you a higher rate per hour and alleviate your time for other things.
Photoshop Autoloader does just that
Photoshop Autoloader is like a Photoshop “app” which I have been using for over 5 years now and it has saved me so much time and so much money. If you haven’t yet got hold of this handy little Photoshop accessory, this is how it works.
On average, people spend 10 seconds saving, closing and opening the next image when processing large batches of photos whether it is for a wedding, portrait shoot or whatever. If you say that on average, a wedding photographer shoots 1000 images at a full day wedding, that is 10,000 seconds or 166 minutes or 2 and 3/4 hours!
At £50 per hour that is the equivalent of £137.50 wasted on simply opening and closing images.
Photoshop Autoloader from Mike D will get you back 9.5 seconds of every 10 seconds you spend on this meaningless task. For a quick rundown and sample of this in action, watch the following short video…I am sure you will be impressed.
See how it works…
Now think about the cost. For $75 (or £45), you can regain all that time for each and every job you process.
How long do you think it will take to recoup that outlay? Yep, around 36 minutes or 216 photos for most people and you have recouped that $75 in time saved…
