The Modern Rules of Image Cutout in eCommerce

by Kathy Butters A Blogger, Content Writer

When a visitor lands on your product page, the product image is the first thing that catches the eye. Product images bridge the gap between the absence of physically examining a product and the ability to do so. In order to sell well, ensuring attractive product images should be your first priority.
Quite a few times, when a photograph is clicked, it needs to be retouched before it can be uploaded to your online store. There may be a number of blemishes in the image that need to be fixed. Image cutout services help in removing these elements so that when buyers visit your eCommerce store, they see nothing short of professional images.
While opting for product image editing, it is important to stick to the following principles
Build Customer Trust
In the eCommerce ecosystem, product images are a reflection of your product’s quality. Thinking this, experts beautify images to such an extent that they look too good to be true. In such a scenario, even when the image looks pleasing to the eye, it might fail in winning the trust of the prospective buyers.

  • Smart use of Shadows: It is a general notion that shadows cast an unprofessional look to a photograph. However, when used smartly, they help in adding a sense of depth to the product. This helps in casting a real appearance to the product thereby striking a chord with the buyers- winning their trust.

Lay Central Emphasis on Product and its Features
Depending on the placement of objects or components, images guide a viewer where to look first. In other words, a viewer shouldn’t get distracted by anything while looking at the product image.  

  • Background removal: Let’s assume that you sell jewelry on your eCommerce store. You decide to reach out to a wider audience and thus start selling on eCommerce giants like Amazon. While getting the photographs of your jewelry clicked, you might have brought out the artist in you and got them clicked in a contrasting background say a tree. However, if you want to sell the same product on an eCommerce marketplace, you’ll need a white background.

    Instead of spending a huge sum of money in hiring a professional photographer all over again, you can simply opt for Image cutout services and change your product’s background as per guidelines.

Pro tip: While getting your images edited as per specific requirements, have a bigger picture in mind of what needs to be done. For instance, mannequins are often used to display apparels in the real world. However, if you want to exhibit the same product online while giving an idea of its fit, you can you can opt for Mannequin photo editing to enhance the overall visual appeal of the image and keep user’s attention focused.

  • Product at the center of the frame: Showcasing your product from different angles is important. Often the original angles from which the photograph has been clicked need to be modified.  Even while doing this, you should remember that your product should be at the center of the image. Any discrepancy in this regard can rip your image of its professional appeal.
