Product photo retouching

Product photo retouching is making your product photos presentable and making it pop out from the rest. Different products need different treatments for each one.

A product in real life can look bright and shiny, but under the scrutiny of a powerful digital camera, and many photography lights, the product can actually reveal

  • Imperfections
  • Scratches
  • misaligned spaces
  • colour imbalance and
  • Dust

That is when product photo retouching comes in. We start the process by a thorough clean up of the entire product from top to bottom to give that fresh new look that is intended for the product.

Some of the most common things requested in product retouch are:

  • Cutting out or clipping path of the product
  • Removal of dust and scratches
  • Straightening and alignment of the product
  • Colour correction
  • Texture and detail enhancement
  • Brightening and levelling
  • Removal of supporting objects like stands, hooks, glue, tape, string and other devices that allow the object to stand on its own

There would be instances where a white background is required for e commerce and cutting out  a product to a white background is also part of product photo retouching. Making the background as simple as a white background helps the product pop out versus a noisy background with so many things going on.

One of the key points of product retouching is emphasis on the details of the product. We enhance the most prominent to the least ones so the viewer can easily spot the finer details of the product. For example, if the product has artistic details on it and is looking a little dull we bring out by enhancing that area. Another example is the texture of the product if one of the selling points of the product is made of a material that has texture then we make it stand out.

To explain the process, we’ll take you through a step by step edit of one product.

We start with a raw image

We start by cleaning up the dusts and scratches with the tools available like healing brush and clone stamp tool.

You can also start color balance using the curves adjustment tool so the image so is more balanced when put on a white background.

After cleaning up we then cut out the product using the pen tool for precise selection 

We can further enhance the product so it is more believable on white background.

The image looks like its floating on the white background so we need to cut out the shadow from the original image using the channel method here:

After that grab the selection from the channels and apply it to the image and then desaturate.

You would get something like this.

Here’s the before and after of the cutout and retouched product.
