    What to do when customers ask for all soft copies and develop a few?

    I am a graphic designer and do photography in part time. I use digital camera in photography. The problem is when I ask people to develop the photographs they ask for all clicked photos and take print out of a very few. Now people want to save the soft copies of the photographs in their system and its the loss of photographer. What can I do?

    hello friend,

    what you can do is to handle the situation smartly. do show them the photographs but on your system and when they ask tell them directly that it is against the rules of your job.

    Dear Guest,
    There is no need to provide the digital copies to them.
    You dont want to lose your customer, in this situation you need to charge extra for the digital photos.
    Rs 2 per photo like that, then they may stop asking for it or if they need it really then they will pay for it.
    Thank you.

    Hi,

    As technology is in advance .

    This trend is followed in all Photograph studios

    Still you can charge them for soft copies

    Make it as mandatory for getting 2 to 4 copies

    Make the soft copy in a cd so that you can charge for the cd as well

    This will increase your income as well as fame



    @@@@Thanks

    Hi. I can surely understand your problem and you should take strict action against this injustice and not give up.

    You should give them only those soft copies which you want to get developed and not all of them. You should be very strict about it.

    Or you can charge money for each soft copy you give them so that they dont take undue advantage of your labour.

    Do stand up against them. Best of luck for your future. Thanks

    Hello,

    Convince the customer that giving all the soft copies is not possible.

    If you want all the copies, pay me the required amount for each copy.

    If the customer agrees make the deal.

    Try to make the customer understand your situation and definitely they will pay you the amount


    Thanks!!!!!!!

    hI FREIND,

    NOW-A-DAYS AS THE TECHNOLOGY IS IMPROVED EVERYONE IS BECOMING SMART.


    IF THE CUSTOMERS ASK FOR THE SOFT COPIES OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS THEN DO THE FOLLOWING
    :-

    1. CHARGE THEM FOR EVEN THE SOFT COPIES AS YOU HAVE TAKEN YOUR TIME TO TAKE THE PICTURES OF THE CUSTOMERS.

    2. MAKE THE PHOTOS IN TO A CD SO THAT YOU CAN TAKE THE ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR IT.

    3. PUT ALL THE PHOTOS BEFORE THEM SO THAT THEY WOULD LIKE SOME OF THEM AND WOULD DEFINITELY LIKE TO TAKE THE SOFT COPIES OR PHOTOS BY PAYING THE MONEY.

    4. TELL THEM THAT ITS YOUR DAILY EARNING WHICH WOULD GIVE YOU THE FOOD FOR LIVING SO THAT THEY GET CONVINCED TO PAY AND TAKE THE SOFT COPIES.

    There is nothing bad in asking the money as you have worked hard in order to earn your living.

    ALL THE BEST MY FRIEND,

    THANKING YOU....

    Hi friend..This is certainly a wrong practice on the part of on the part of the photograph developers and you should certainly not become a victim of such underhand practices..So you should certainly do something about it and not let these people take advantage of you in this fashion..

    Firstly i think you should not get your photos developed from people who do such practices and cheat their customers..I am sure there will be some honest people also out in the market and you should try to find them and then your problem will certainly be solved..

    But if by any chance you dont find any honest person in your nearby locality then what you can do is try to just give them those prints which you want to develop and dont give them any extra print..I surely think your camera will have such a facilty where you can transfer your photos which you want to get developed to a portable medium like a pendrive or if not buy such a camera..The price of such cameras is ordinary and so you wont face much problem ..

    So this will solve your problem ...Good luck.. Thanks
