WHAT BENEFITS FOR THE Art & Antiquities INDUSTRY?

  • Multiple product trimming

    The Multi Product Capture feature on PackshotCreator software allows you to photograph simultaneously several historical weapons, for example, displayed on a flat surface in your photo studio. You can then automatically obtain separate image files for each item. Incredibly convenient and productive when you are creating catalogues.

  • Automate your image production

    For online auctions, many images must be photographed as quickly as possible. Whether there are 50 or 2000 product references, PackshotCreator software will standardize and automate your production: product placement, memorization of batch parameters, simultaneously exportation of files into several formats, and many more.

  • Quality photographs, available right away

    The lighting choice (LED with a temperature similar to daylight) and the modular panels made of anodized aluminum on our studios, combined with the PackshotCreator software, allow you to perfectly control the creation of your artwork visuals. You can photograph them on a white background and master shadows thanks to lighting control over several independent zones.
