<![CDATA[Hot Products in the News - Blog]]>Mon, 28 Dec 2015 11:10:17 -0800Weebly<![CDATA[ Light, camera, action for your we based clothing store ghost mannequin photography ]]>Sun, 27 Dec 2015 21:32:32 GMThttp://productsinthenews.weebly.com/blog/-light-camera-action-for-your-we-based-clothing-store-ghost-mannequin-photographyBeing in the photo editing services business, I work with many online business owners as well as photographers. Most of the people I work with are usually small individual business owners or photography studios. Clothing store owners that own and operate a web based clothing store often find them in need of having ghost mannequin photography taken. I have seen in many occasions where web shop owners will hire professional photographers as they are not sure how to shoot those ghost mannequin photography or simply don’t have the time (or they don’t have the patience) to do the ghost mannequin photography themselves.

Where in reality, shooting ghost mannequin photography can be very easy. All you need is a good camera, some skills in taking pictures, know a little about the lights and other setup and you are a professional photographer for your own clothing items.

Seriously, its that easy. Often I see really pathetic images of ghost mannequin photography taken by professional photographers that it breaks my heart seeing how clients are being ripped off on those poor photographs that are supposed to be professional high quality clothing images. Once the poor photographs are taken by some wanabie or lame photographers, then come to me asking those images to be retouched to enhance their look. Now being in the photo editing and retouching business, its great news for me because I get the business of editing those photos, but at the end it is the clothing store owners who pay for those edits.

If you don’t have the budget to hire a professional photographer with proper credentials, then do  yourself a favour and do the ghost mannequin photography shooting yourself. Trust me, its lot better than paying some inexperienced photographers. After all, you cannot make it any worse. At the end, you save money for the photographers who will charge you easy $20 - $50 per photo taken.

Once you take those photos yourself for your clothing items, you can then pass those images to the professional photo editing service providers like me and we can take it form there. Edit cost will be half as there will be only need to do ghost mannequin photography editing. No need for any actual image editing or retouching to enhance the look of the image as it came up right to begin with.

<![CDATA[ Working with non-professional images for ghost mannequin editing ]]>Sun, 14 Jun 2015 06:30:42 GMThttp://productsinthenews.weebly.com/blog/-working-with-non-professional-images-for-ghost-mannequin-editingPicture
Clipping path and ghost mannequin service providers often deal with clients who take their own product photos without a professional photo studio. While working with non-professional photos are a bit more challenging that working with professionally taken photos in a photography studio with proper lightings and setting, clients always expect the clipping path and ghost mannequin service providers to come up with the professional quality finished edit.

One thing you will need to understand that working with non-professional or poor quality photos with low resolution is extremely time consuming. Aside from just doing the ghost mannequin editing for example, the photo editing service provider will have to retouch the photo adjusting brightness/contrast, work on color correction, edit the photos to fix any outline that is not correct and aligned with the other part of the dress, etc.

All these extra edits are time consuming. In some cases, doing the ghost mannequin retouching takes more time than simple ghost mannequin editing. Cost of edit therefore goes by. In some cases the edits cost double or even triple compared to the edit with a professionally shot photo.

If you are a clothing store business owner and working with ghost mannequin photography on a regular basis, you just calculate the additional cost of the edits and see it is justified for you to do your ghost mannequin photography this way. If  you have 200 new products every other week for example, that’s 2 shots per product meaning 400 photos every other week. 800 photos every month equalling to 960 photos per year.

Of course some apparel business owners will have less while some may even have 2, 5 or even 10+ times more pictures per year that will need to be edited. If  you calculate the additional cost of ghost mannequin editing, it might just be justified to setup a studio for the product photo shoot.

There was time when there was no digital camera. All pictures were taken on SLR cameras at the time. Pictures needed editing would be scanned first and then get edited. There were not that many photo editing programs available either.

Now a days, SLR cameras are museum item. Lot of digital cameras have advanced setting and some even have editing options. Home users can do minor edits right on the camera.

Then there came camera phones. At the beginning, camera phones would just take pictures which was a blessing for lot of us. Now a days, cell phones have very high end cameras integrated with apps allowing the user to edit those photos right on the phone.

However, if you are looking to get clipping path, ghost mannequin editing etc, you will still need to use professional photo editing tools and use a computer to do your photo editing.

Some people edit photos for their own personal use. Some minor editing gets done by people who take pictures on the go and share them across various social media like facebook, instagram, etc. some people are serious about the image quality of the images they share on the social medias. Since the modern day cell phones allow people to do some editing, this type of editing are done easily at no additional cost to the users.

However, those who need professional editing like clipping path, ghost mannequin etc, it is a must to hire a professional photo editing person or if the volume is large, then hire a photo editing services company to do the job.

Taking the pictures is just the beginning step. A photo retouching services provider or photo editing company takes the mannequin photo and edits it to create an invisible mannequin effect.

 

Creating a ghost mannequin effect is somewhat complex. First of all, a photo editing services provider will need to start with 2 different images.

Lot of editing, polishing and retouching is needed to come up with a quality invisible mannequin photography so its important to have the right photo retouching services company to work with.
