“Aimee and her team at Image Approvals are truly fantastic. They made the process seamless from start to finish. They were incredibly communicative throughout, and ensured everything was delivered at the completion of the project in an organized fashion as promised. I will absolutely be working with them again in the future! Highly recommend.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

- Julia Fisher Farbman, Emblem Entertainment

I have to say I don’t know what we would have done without you! Your attention to detail and organizational skills helped to streamline the approvals process greatly and certainly made it much less painful for us and our cast! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

- Patti Ishimoto, Producer

“The Image Approvals service was such a life saver. They helped us unravel our unit photography into manageable folders that were easy for us and talent to navigate. Aimee’s team were patient as we went through the process and gave us guidance throughout. They are incredibly good value for money and I would work with them again in a heartbeat. Thank you Aimee and team!” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Clean easy-to-use interface

No need to download and learn complex software; our platform is clean, desktop and mobile optimised, and easy to use.

Each cast member is allocated their own unique account allowing them to browse photographs by production day, and keep track of which images they’ve viewed, are yet to view, and have killed. New images uploaded to the platform appear immediately, avoiding the need to repeatedly send new share links or contact sheets.

Actors can browse images by thumbnail, or by one image at a time. Our one-click-kill process speeds up the image review process, reducing the number of clicks (or touches) required to go through the process. Should a photograph be killed accidentally, then there is the option to navigate backwards and un-kill the image.

Once an actor has finished reviewing the day, they can mark it as done, allowing you to keep track of the process, ensuring the process is completed on time.

Keep track of kill counts, solo and group

We keep track of image kill counts so that you don’t have too.

Actors see a simple breakdown showing them how many images they appear in, how many images they are allowed to kill, and what percentage of that kill allowance they’ve used.

Agents, publicists, or producers overseeing the Image Approvals process have a more advanced kill allowance view. This advanced view allows them to see not only their own kill allowance but the kill allowance of each cast member assigned to the production, giving them a high-level overview of their progress.

Export PDF contact sheets

Production-side user accounts have access to a downloads section, allowing the download of printable summary-contact-sheets of all images, all killed images, or all unkilled images. Both PDF and spreadsheet formats are available.

These contact sheets show who has killed each image, which of the talent has marked each day as done, or still needs to do so. This extra information acts as a clear audit trail and prevents contact sheets being distributed and images shared before actors have completed their kill process.

Start the talent approvals process from day-one of shooting

Social media and PR often demands the timely release of assets, especially for episodic content. Our platform helps to prevent the Image Approvals process from blocking your marketing and publicity activities.

With our Express Service we can provide your photographer with an SFTP link to upload their images to us at the end of each day so we can get your images online ready for stakeholder visibility and cast approvals as soon as possible.
