I recently came across a company a company on LinkedIn that is offering outsourced editing.  

Have any of you tried this approach?

I'm not silly rich. Otherwise, it would be tempting.

I don't send out any of my work.  I prefer to edit all my own photos.

No. I don't shoot unless I have a pretty good ideal of the image I am seeing in the finder. How would someone else know what I saw?

Post processing is half the fun for me.  So no.  That part I want to control.  That would be like having someone push the shutter button on your camera for you.

I think for most folks, the only type of retouching that is worth outsourcing is portrait work. You can provide a reference image and then someone can clone that look. Insofar as it becomes grunt work, it makes sense to outsource.

Me, I don't even repeat myself when doing that. Every image is unique, and requires at least some attention. But I don't do fashion, or commercial, or editorial. And if I need to clone settings, it's usuallly the case I'm staying in LR and can simpley copy/paste settings, then crop and minimally fine tune the exposure.

So, no.
