The Different Image Types We Deliver
We offer 4 different file types, explained below.
Delivery Standards for all files:
- White Background: Images are delivered with full 255/100% pure white around the product to 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.
- Shadows & Reflections: Contact shadows are maintained and reflections are gradated to white no more than 25% below the product.
- 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.

Transparent File Types We Deliver
+$5 | Transparent Web Ready PNG
It’s a transparent PNG ready to go on your website. Shadows & reflections are removed from this file because a transparent PNG cannot render shadows/reflection at different opacity's or blending modes. It is either transparent or solid, on or off. Therefore a shadow wouldn't not look good when placed on top of a different color.
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
