The cropping component identifies the model or object in your image and allows you to automatically cut the image at certain key points. It makes it a breeze to focus on the important parts of your product image.

Create high quality crops for model or product emphasis from photo studio images and crop images according to the style guides of the major online marketplaces you are selling on.

Aspect Ratio

When cropping an image, the size of the image changes, which may result in an unexpected aspect ratio of the image. To address this issue you are able to either keep the original aspect ratio of the input image or set a custom one.

Original Image

None

Just crops the image at the selected key points.

Keep Original

Keeps the aspect ratio of the original input image.

Custom (Example 1:1.2)

Set any aspect ratio by specifying a width to height ratio.


FAQ

What kind of images does the cropping algorithm work for?

You can use the cropping algorithm on any kind of image containing a model or object. It works best for model images with the model facing the camera. For best results, use images with a solid background with minimal details.

How should a model be positioned on the image?

For the best results the model should stay upright facing the camera. If a person is not standing upright but lying on the floor, for example, the image is still cropped at the defined point in the frame and not in relation to the orientation of the person.

Can I use the cropping algorithm on models wearing sunglasses?

The algorithm detects multiple key points on the face and can work with models wearing sunglasses. However, sunglasses or any kind of object covering parts of the face may cause some issues recognising the right key points in the face.
