The Different Image Types We Deliver

We offer four different file types, explained below. One standard file type is included in the price of the photo, or you can order both for +$5 per photo. Each advanced file type is +$5 per photo.

Each file type is optimized for different uses. Read more on the file information and uses to make sure you order exactly what you need. Note: we can always deliver additional file types after the shoot if you decide you need them.

Included For Every File

  • White Background: Images are delivered with full 255/100% pure white around the product, meeting the standards of most online retailers.
  • Basic Retouching: Images are carefully color matched to the product, retouched for minor dust and minor scratches, skewed to be straight if photographed straight on.

Included For Tif & Amazon Ready Jpeg

  • Shadows & Reflections: Contact shadows are maintained and reflections are gradated to white no more than 25% below the product.

Available For An Additional Charge

  • Special Retouching: Retouching to products with excessive damage requiring “heavy compositing” or “building” parts that are not existing will be billed separately based on the project at $20 per 15 mins.

Advanced File Types

Transparent Web PNG

PNGs have web-ready transparent backgrounds

+$5 | Transparent Web Ready PNG

It’s a transparent PNG ready to go to your website. Shadows & reflections can be created or removed from this file type, and the transparent background will allow the product to “float” on your website without a white background.

The only way to blend a shadow into the background is to use blending modes in photoshop and the High res Tif + clipping path is a better file for that.

Format: Web Ready PNG
Compression: PNG 24
Colorspace: sRGB
Resolution: 72 dpi
Width/Height: 3000px X 3000px Square
Crop:1/4 inch around the product
Cost: $5 per image

*Note About Illustrator and Indesign; although they are Adobe software, they handle transparency and paths differently than Photoshop. This causes unexpected results on import. We cannot create a file that will work equally for both software sets without sacrificing usability for one or the other. Because of this, we prepare our images for Photoshop which the majority of our customers use when editing images and do not recommend using Illustrator or Indesign for editing photos, especially transparency related composites.
