Make your product photos better with Shopify's built-in image editing tool

Photoshop or similar is by far the most efficient and effective way to edit an image.

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

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.

Hi Kim,

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.

Regards

Jacqui

How secure is your website? Don't wait to find out the hard way
How secure is your website? Don't wait to find out the hard way

Shopify's security is good. But any security is only as strong as your password, and the security of the machine on which you log onto the website.

Consider this scenario (you may need a coffee first).
