Product Photography

This page touches on product photography, which happens to be a growing field with the growing popularity of online shopping.  When you choose Dawn Bergeron for your photography needs, you will get access to a fully lighted and professional studio to photograph your products and produce the high resolution images you need for both internet and printing needs.  Amazon is one platform to sell your products, and they have specific guidelines.  I wanted to share that here for a reference point.

AMAZON Photo Guidelines

Image Standards

  • Images must accurately represent the product and show only the product that's for sale, with minimal or no propping.

  • MAIN images must have a pure white background (pure white blends in with the Amazon search and item detail pages - RGB values of 255, 255, 255).

  • MAIN images must show the actual product (not a graphic or illustration), and must NOT show excluded accessories, props that may confuse the customer, text that is not part of the product, or logos/watermarks/inset images.

  • The product must fill 85% or more of the image.

  • Images should be 1000 pixels or larger in either height or width, as this will enable zoom function on the website (zoom has proven to enhance sales). The smallest your file should be is 500 pixels on the longest side.

  • Amazon accepts JPEG (.jpg), TIFF (.tif), or GIF (.gif) file formats. JPEG is preferred.
