NOTEDO Door closers
Retouching and processing door closers’ images using eCommerce image editing services.

Notedo is a wholesaler of door closers. They have a broad range of high-quality models available in different colors and appearances.

The company has launched new door closer models that needed to be displayed on catalogs so that suppliers could explore the collection and place orders for the best suitable products.

2020
Our job is to prepare images for catalogs and online stores through eCommerce photo editing and retouching. There are around 40 door closer models available in 8 different colors. No matter what, the product in images should look neat and aesthetically pleasing. All pictures must match each other in size, color, and style with no background. If something is missing, complement those details by copying them from other photos through eCommerce image editing and manipulation.
Task
Main problems
The images are originally captured with a professional camera but require basic color correction, product perspective flattening, and exposure restoration.
Basic

The dirt and defects on product images make them unattractive to a potential buyer.
Dirt and defects

Missing caps on some products while clicking photos, making images look incomplete.
Missing elements

Each product has 8 color variations. The color in images should be the same as the actual product.

Work
The work is divided into stages in order to allocate proper time and effort for each element. All images are subject to basic color correction. The perspective is to represent the correct shape of the object. Exposure is corrected as overexposed spots lose texture and shape. It also creates a false impression of the product's shape. Whatever the object, eCommerce photo retouching services are used to make all the needed corrections.
We use the pen tool to remove the background with due attention to every detail. The team doesn’t prefer automatic tool selection for this project as it leads to more mistakes, resulting in wasting more time to fix them.

Now, the high-end eCommerce retouching services begin. Most products contain traces of dust, dirt, and scratches or defects. The cleaning takes place using the frequency decomposition technique, making products look perfect, natural, and realistic. In some places, the texture of the metal is restored, whereas, in others, the excessive "graininess" is muffled.

Moving one step ahead, we work on the shape, highlights, and reflections of the object using eCommerce product photo editing. It is necessary to give products a shiny metallic look to make them look clean. Each element is processed with a separate adjustment layer. We then use the Dodge & Burn technique to add even more shine to objects.

Here, we ensure to add caps in photos where they were missing during the photo shoot by using eCommerce photo retouching. It is done by copying an identical cap from another image. We then correct the shape and add shadows to make caps look perfect. Everything is performed carefully to make traces of retouching and processing invisible.
Some products are created using ready-made images through eCommerce photo editing and manipulation. If all the components are absolutely identical, except for the length, we can increase it quickly and easily in the already finished image. Overall, products must have a uniform look, shape, and texture, and we ensure so by making the best use of eCommerce product image editing services.
In this project, there is no need to shoot every product in all colors. Doing so will only complicate the work, leading to investing more time and money for photography and eCommerce product retouching. It is much better to remove the base neutral color (gray) and use it to make color variations or other coating materials.
