Cut-out images are product images that have been cut out from its original background and placed onto a white or transparent background.
It is important to have cut out images as this is often what is requested by print and online publications to be placed on a shopping styled page (i.e. "Editors Favourites" "Best Buys" "Shop the Season"). Studio recommendations are available in when you subscribe to our knowledge hub.
Make sure that your cut out images are of a high quality (300dpi).
Lifestyle images are often referred to as in-situ images as they feature the product in a real life setting. As many editors now lack the time to call in products for an in-house shoot, great lifestyle images are sometimes needed.
Great lifestyle images are visually pleasing and can be used both across your website and social media pages as a way of enticing your customer.
Our subscribers with the best imagery get the best coverage.
The proof is in the placement.
