When selling a product online — whether it’s clothing or jewelry, a tech gadget, cookbook, sports equipment, or just about anything else — not only is it important to have a quality item that customers love, but it’s equally vital to showcase the product in the most professional way possible. That means no clutter or any other distractions that will take the attention away from your products. Almost every picture you take will need some level of post-production editing, but luckily with so many easy-to-use photo editing tools out there, the task doesn’t have to be a tedious one. That’s why we’ve compiled five ways to make your products pop on Etsy, eBay, or any other marketplace online. Don’t post without checking this list off first!
Remove Background Clutter
Having a pristine background for all product photography is necessary for success, as it keeps all eyes on your product. But as any business owner or photographer knows, not every photo is perfect from the get-go. In fact, most aren’t. If you see any clutter or noise in the background of your product shots, don’t worry because you can easily and quickly remove it in a single click with PicsArt’s Background Remover tool. All you have to do is upload an image from your desktop to the Background Remover tool, housed in the main Photo Editor, and our AI technology will automatically detect and remove the background for you. Now you’re ready to upload your final image to your website or social media. The process is so fast – blink and you’ll miss how it’s done!
Add Fun Background to Stand Out Even More
Aside from removing clutter with the handy Background Remover tool, PicsArt also offers the option to add fun backdrops to product shots with the Background Changer. Don’t have budget or space for a marble table, rustic wood backdrop, or lux velvet? Well, you don’t need to anymore! From simple to playful, you’re sure to find a background image that will be the perfect complement to your product shot and simultaneously make your webpage pop. You can upload your own image to use as a background or you can choose one from PicsArt’s extensive #FreetoEdit image library. To keep things consistent and create a signature look, you can choose one or two stylish backgrounds and use them on all your product shots.
Use Filters to Enhance Product Shots
Almost every photo online has gone through some filtering process. Adding filters to photos ensures that all your product shots have the same overall look and feel. PicsArt has endless filters and photo effects that can take your images from plain to on-trend in a single tap. Whether you’re looking for something subtle or eye-catching, there is a filter that’s a perfect match for your product. Once you settle on one, or a few, filters that speak to your style, you can run all your images through them before posting. These filters can quickly become your signature when you sell on Etsy or place a listing on eBay.
Use Replay to Create a Cohesive Product Page
Another fun and quick way to ensure that your eBay or Etsy page is cohesive is to run your images through one of PicsArt’s Replays. The exclusive Replay feature essentially allows you to recreate impressive edits in just a few clicks, no need to try to remember exactly what filter or opacity level you chose previously. All you have to do is upload your photo and then click along to apply each editing step to your own photo. Think of Replays as autopilot for easy, streamlined creative. If you want to adjust something, you still have total control to move things around within your Replay. You can even create your own Replay to save and use as you would do with presets. For your unique marketplace, you can pick one or a few Replays that match your aesthetic, then run your product shots through them to give your page a consistent, uniform look. The best part is that even if you’re not a professional artist, it will look like you spent thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours designing your page when you actually did it in seconds.
Upscale Images Without Losing Resolution
When starting an Etsy shop or opening an eBay store, it’s important to put your most professional foot forward with high-resolution images. Especially in your early days, even one low-quality photo can ruin the reputation of your business and turn customers off. Luckily, you can use PicsArt’s Image Upscale tool to increase image resolution in seconds. That means you can continue snapping photos on your smartphone without compromising the quality or reputation of your online business.
