Editing and Culling Help

Uploading and Downloading

–  We use DropBox to transfer files. When you place an order you’ll receive an email with a link of where to upload. When we complete the editing, we’ll email you a link to download the files directly from DropBox


How long will you store my RAW images?

– If you let us be your editor, we’ll let you do the storing :). However, we do keep RAW files for 30 days in the case of revisions after we send you images!


Do you edit JPEG’s?

– We do! There is surcharge of $.03 per image to edit JPGS in addition to the base price.


Will you send me back JPEG’s upon request?

– Absolutely! If you are sending RAW files to be edited you can choose to receive your files back as JPEGs or XMPs. If you are sending JPEGs to be edited you will receive edited JPEGs back.


Will you be able to rename my files?

– Of course! You can indicate how you’d like us to name the files when you place the order. There’s no charge for this. Note, renaming is only available if you’ve chosen to receive edited JPEGs.


Will you be able to sequence my files?

– If your cameras were time synced then we will sequence your files for only $20. If the cameras were not synced by time stamp then there is a $75 surcharge for sequencing. Please note that this can affect the Turnaround Time


What are the Turnaround Times?

– Turnaround time is 2 weeks for Editing and 1 week for Culling. If you bundle both services together you’ll get Culling and Editing back in just 2 weeks! This could increase a little during heavy “editing season” of August – November


Can we try Zook editing on a trial order?

– Absolutely! When you place your order, check the box that it’s your first one and we’ll edit up to 20 images from multiple scenes for you to review. When you receive the files you’ll provide feedback, we’ll re-edit, and you’ll approve that we can start the rest of the order.


How long will it take to get the test images back on my first order?

– Turnaround time is ~3 days


Can you edit using my LightRoom presets?

– Yes. We offer a selection of our own popular filters or you can send us up to 3 of your preset filters. Note, presets will be saved as an additional file and will be included along with the original. Only available with JPEG


Do you offer Artistic Enhancements?

– Yes. We offer a variety of enhancements to customize the look you want.


When is payment due?

– Payment is due via credit (or debit) card when order is placed.
