Customize Project Workflow Steps
Tailor Production to Unique Project Requirements
Amplify allows you to easily define the appropriate workflow steps regardless of the type and size of your product photography project. Some of the most common workflow steps users manage through Amplify include:
- Receiving products at the studio
- Collecting product data
- Photographing products
- Editing and QA of images
- Formatting and exporting images
- Returning products to inventory
Every project is different – some are basic with only a few steps in the workflow process whereas other are complex involving many workflow steps. Amplify can manage it all.
Control Image Quality
Ensure All Image Meet Your Quality Standards
Amplify has built-in QA processes allowing each image to be reviewed for quality. Images that do not pass QA are sent back for further editing or reshooting. Comments are included with the rejected images so editors and photographers know why they did not pass QA.
Search & Edit Images
Manage Images at All Stages of the Production Process
Amplify can provide visibility into the various stages of production for product photography projects of any size. Production managers can create advanced search queries to display products by production stage, allowing them to edit image information and associated metadata.
Generate Production and Image Reports
Track Project Progress and Report on Image Data
Amplify collects photography and image production data and all image, product, project, and users related information. Project and system-wide dashboards display daily and monthly photography and image editing, QA, and formatting production. Custom reports can be created and downloaded for further analysis and for distribution to project stakeholders.
Manage Photography Process

- Entering and reading SKU numbers and UPC codes

- Coordinating image views
- File renaming
- Managing Photography Software

Amplify allows photographers to focus on what they do best – taking high-quality images, fast.
Manage Image Editing Process
Editors Work Anywhere, Anytime, on Any Project
With Amplify’s image editing management workflows, editors can be located anywhere in the world, they can easily switch from project to project, their production activity is tracked, and image download and upload is automated. Image editors work in Photoshop without ever having to manually download or upload images. They are able to focus their time and effort on creating high-quality images, not on file management.
Outsource Image Editing
Easily Outsource Images Editing to Service Providers
When the number of images that need editing exceeds the capacity of the internal editing team and / or the cost of editing is too high, outsourcing to an external service provider is a viable option. Amplify has built-in functionality allowing images to be batched and allocated to a service provider. The provider uses Amplify to download images to be edited and upload final edited images. All production is tracked by the system and can be reported on. Outsourcing image batches scales production and lowers costs.
