Our good work goes beyond perfect edits


Outsourced image editing that’s good for your business — and good for the world.

Path was founded with a purpose: to empower people everywhere to do work they love, so they can create thriving businesses, lives, and communities.

We believe outsourcing has the power to change the world for the better. Both for our customers and in the communities where our teams work and live.

The Path story

Path’s CEO and founder, Atiqur Rahman Molla, grew up in Gaibandha, a village in Bangladesh. Atiqur grew up seeing poverty and suffering in his community, and he wanted to help, even as a kid. He wanted to make a difference.

Path is that difference. What started as a small family-run design business in 2008 has grown into an online image editing studio with customers around the world — and has helped create nearly 1000 jobs in Gaibandha.

We still think of ourselves as a family business — just a much bigger family than when we started.

The path to Path

Part of our mission is to create jobs that change local villagers’ lives with access to real employment opportunities and real salaries. No one should have to leave their family to find work in a larger city.

  • Everything starts at the Sarah Institute

    Our very own training centre in Gaibandha, named after Atiqur’s grandmother.

  • Aspiring designers learn everything they need to know

    Our six-month training program covers everything students need to know to start a career in design — from computer basics to advanced image editing and graphic design.

  • Every student gets a scholarship if they need it

    Scholarships cover 75% of tuition for every student, so each student pays the equivalent of $60 for the program.

  • We help our students find the path that’s right for them

    The curriculum includes career development and business skills, so our students can forge new paths of their own.

  • Real-world experience makes all the difference

    A three-month internship kick-starts our students’ careers with real-world experience.

  • Our graduates are ready to take on the world

    Graduates go on to jobs they love or start their own freelance businesses. We recruit the best of the best to become part of the Path family.

Since launching Path, we’ve:

  • Edited over
    8 million images

  • Supported more than
    26,506 businesses around the world

  • Created 777 jobs with operations in Bangladesh, the US and the UK

  • Founded the Sarah Institute, our training center that has helped more than 400 students become pro designers and retouchers

  • Donated $638,000, 5% of our revenue,
    to community organizations and projects that support healthcare, education, homelessness, disaster relief, and other important causes
