But if you have an ‘ooops’ moment when you’ve already loaded the images and discover they need to be cropped or enhanced, Shopify has a handy built in editing tool that you can use which offers the following effects:
The text tool comes in handy if you’ve realised that customers have no way of knowing which variant belongs to each photograph (e.g. which swatch is Aviator blue and which swatch is Artic blue) and need to add a label.
I’m paranoid, and like to duplicate the product (top right of the product screen) before I work on it, in case of accidents).
Open up your product in the admin/products screen and scroll down to the images for that product. Click on the pencil ‘edit’ tool at the bottom left of the photo
Crop, rotate or otherwise enhance your image and Apply the change
Remember to save your changes
Once you are happy with your changes you can delete the duplicated backup product if you created one.
As you can see, the updated image is a far better product photo for your website as it shows the product (an abstract silver statue) in more detail, and removes the peculiar pink colour caste on the original image.
"The fantastic team at eChic.com.au really know their craft! They don't just build and design websites, but they really understand the needs, concerns and challenges that the small business owner has; whether they are just starting out or they are seasoned entrepreneurs.
Kim and her team, and a special shout out to Tina and Nicole, have worked on two websites for me now, and both times I hade always felt I was in safe and competent hands. They clearly explained everything during the project, and as a non-techie person I never felt I was talked down or any comments dismissed.
I wholeheartedly recommend eChic for all your eCommerce website needs . They are very approachable and offered me great value for my websites."
"The team and eChic were very helpful and were on hand to sort out any
issues, questions and queries we had. I will definitely use them again."
"I am thrilled with the new site and a couple of customers have already commented on how lovely it looks.
I had fabulous support from your team all the way who were patient with my inadequacies.
Everyone listened to what I wanted and implemented my requests.
The process was good and streamlined."Jacqui
