What advantages for furniture?
Boost your conversion rate with interactive images
The progressive zoom enlarges the whole image by 20x even when an item of furniture is animated in 360° or 3D. The customer zooms in on one area of the product and browses the image while keeping the same magnification. According to research, the more potential customers have access to detailed interactive visuals (360° animations, Focus Stacking), the more the conversion rate increases while the rate of returns goes down.
Automate the production of furniture visuals
Whether you have 50 or 500 items to photograph, PackshotCreator software cuts back on travel logistics and standardizes your photo shoots: you'll have access to product placement help, memorized batch parameters to standardize all your furnishings, and simultaneous export of the file into several formats for use across all your communication media.
Perfectly clear images and animations
Hyperfocus or focus stacking is a software feature that allows you eliminate the progressive blurring effect, particularly on arrangements of furniture and small decor items, or any other product displayed on a lengthwise or on multiple levels. Your visuals will be perfectly clear.
