Amazon’s cosmetic product photographs must adhere to certain technical standards and terms. It can be difficult to comprehend and follow these requirements. The photograph cannot be an illustration, must take up 85% of the frame, have a pure white background, and be provided in specific file types, colour schemes, and dimensions.
You can include six pictures and one video in an Amazon listing. There are usually 1-3 white-background pictures plus lifestyle photographs that display the product in use. As a graphic designer, I can assist you in developing visuals that express your identity and that potential buyers will gravitate towards.
I typically request a photo of your product, a list of images you like, and a shot list from you when I first meet with a new client. Everything is accomplished online, including a phone call or video conference if necessary. Products are shipped or dropped off to me, and I shoot in my home studio. The finished images are then uploaded to a server for fast and convenient downloading.
White Background Photos
Amazon requires the first photo in your listing to have a pure white background that registers as RGB 255, 255 255. Without lighting and editing software, this is very difficult to do on your own. I am set up to shoot small to medium-sized amazon products with professional light set up in my studio. Lighting it the correct way from the start allows for a seamless editing process to get sharp images with consistent shadows and bright white backgrounds.
Lifestyle Product Photography
Customers will have a perceived value of your product based on the product photography. Showing your product in use under natural lighting can be a great way to influence consumers towards the purchase of your product. It can help them imagine the use and give scale to the product and set you apart from other sellers with similar products using stock images.
