June ’21 – Week 2 – An Interview with Bill Keane

Bill Keane - CEO and Founder

53 years of photography and related industry experience. You read that right, 53! Bill Keane has extensive knowledge when it comes to running a photography business and he opens up in this interview about how he’s been able to stay in business for so long and be so successful. To give you an idea of how far back Bill started, Bill’s first camera was a Kodak Brownie that he bought when he was 10 years old. (If you’re not sure what a Brownie is, click here to see.) The full audio and transcript of the interview are below. 

June ’21 – Week 1 – Delivery Time Estimator

To RUSH, or not to RUSH? That’s what we made the Delivery Time Estimator for! To help you make informed decisions about when to expect your order and if you should mark it as RUSH.

Once you’ve selected a retouching level, you’ll see a graph similar to the one below (please note that the following graph is for Complete Retouch):

RetouchUp's Delivery Time Estimator

The graph shows how long it took for similar orders to be completed in the past 24 hours. Based on the above graph, most Complete Retouch orders will be done in 19 hours. If RUSH is applied, then the order would be ready in closer to 5 hours. We do our best to predict when your order will be ready, but some factors that can cause delays are:

1. Large or complicated orders.
2. Incomplete or unclear instructions.
3. Missing reference photos.
4. The order was sent at the incorrect retouching level. These must be manually reassigned to an artist who can perform the higher level retouch.

Our team works around the clock and we do try to match our clients’ schedules. Occasionally, unanticipated weekend volume can result in higher weekend turnaround times. If you have a hard deadline it is always advisable to select RUSH. You can also reach out to Customer Service and we will do all we can to help you meet your deadline.
