AI Photoshoot Tool

How do I generate good product photos?

Creating high-quality product photos hinges on two essentials: your photo’s initial quality and the background scene you select. Here’s 4 key methods to generate good product photos:

 

  1. Themes: Tap into a library of over 250 pre-set scenes across 21 themes for quick use. Pick the scene you like and drop it on the canvas, resize and orient your product as naturally as you can in your chosen scene and then hit “Generate Photos” to get 4 options. We kept the original product in some scenes for better visualization. Overlay your product to fully cover the original, then run the “Generate Photos” button to prevent the original product from showing or use the Magic Eraser to remove it first.
  1. Custom (without Scene): Simply upload your product photo, enter a descriptive product name and your desired scene description prompt. Use the “Ask AI” feature to generate a scene prompt for your product. Then directly hit the “Generate Photos” button under the canvas and NOT “Generate Scenes” since you are going straight to the final photos in this method. This method offers speed at the cost of some control, with outcomes reliant on your photo and chosen prompt.
  1. Custom (with Scene): In this method there is the 1 extra step where you will generate 4 scenes first to choose from before proceeding to the final photos. Do this by clicking the “Generate Scenes” button under the custom scene prompt box. Note you can even upload your own reference scene using the “+” sign above your canvas. Once your chosen scene is on the canvas, place your product into that scene, resize and orient so it looks as natural as possible. For additional help, the “Ask AI” feature generates scene suggestions. After selecting a scene, you may edit it further, adjust your product’s placement and size, then produce your photos. This approach allows for greater control over the final images generated.
  1. Burst Mode: This is like the Custom (without Scene) but on steroids, this mode generates batches of 10, 20, or even 30 unique product photos at once, automatically selecting scenes for you without lifting a finger. While it limits scene control, it’s excellent for generating a variety of ideas quickly. Pro-tip: Enjoyed a particular photo? Simply reuse its prompt in the Custom (with Scene) workflow for finer control and higher quality results.

To conclude, use the method you prefer and that gives you the best results. We designed the Photoshoot tool to be flexible in this regard but highly recommend either of the Custom workflows in tandem with the upscaler to yield the highest quality results.

What is the difference between “Generate Scenes” and “Generate Photos”?

The “Generate Scenes” and “Generate Photos” buttons serve distinct functions in the process of creating product images. 

Generate Scenes: This button is used when you want to select or customize the background for your product. In the Custom (with Scene) method, after entering a scene description, clicking “Generate Scenes” produces up to four different background scenes. This step allows you to visualize and choose the most suitable backdrop for your product before finalizing the photo. It’s about setting the stage for your product.

Generate Photos: After placing and adjusting your product in the chosen scene/canvas, hitting the “Generate Photos” button processes the combined image (product + background prompt) to create final, polished product photos, complete with shadows and reflections. No matter what workflow you use, this button is the last step to bring your photos to life.

In essence, “Generate Scenes” is about selecting and customizing the right stage (background scene) for your product, while “Generate Photos” finalizes the image with your product in that scene, ready for your marketing endeavors.

 

Some of the templates have an existing product in them when I add to the canvas, how can I use that as a scene?

We left the products in those templates so you could visualize how your product could look before picking those scenes. There are 2 ways to ensure that this other product is not visible in your final product photos generated – 1) Ensure to resize and place your product to cover the original product properly. 2) If it’s not possible to do or looks bad doing so, we recommend using the Magic Edit feature to erase the original product and then add your product into that area (note you can also use “Magic Redraw” to smooth out any haziness left behind by the Magic eraser option which happens in some cases).

Are there any products or product types that don’t work well with the AI Photoshoot tool?

 Most products work great but we’ve noticed when the product image is low quality or super tiny/fine like fine necklaces or products on models etc can lead to low quality photos from the AI Model. Recommend choosing a good quality product photo and with a perspective or composition where it can naturally be placed into or onto any setting by the AI.

How do I generate photos with multiple products?

Unlike other tools, even on a free account you can upload multiple products via the “Assets” tab and then choose those products on your canvas while designing photos. Each of those products would be its own “layer” which can be manipulated to your liking.

How do I download the generated images at higher quality?

ProductScope AI automatically preserves the quality of your input product images but if for any reason you need to upscale it you can click on “Magic Edit” tab and scroll down to “Upscale Image [Choose Scaling Factor]” and pick either 2x or 4x and hit “Apply”.

This will either 2x or 4x the quality and resolution of your canvas image. Note the photo size can go up quite a bit but you should see the photo quality and even text get a lot crisper at 2K or even 4K resolutions!

How to resize my canvas image to different sizes or aspect ratios?

 The default canvas size is 1024×1024 pixels but you can easily resize your canvas photo to multiple supported aspect ratios by either going into the “Magic Edit” tab and scrolling to the ” Resize or Upscale” section (you can also just click the “resize or upscale” button at the bottom of your canvas and it will take you into the Magic Edit tab.

Then select a canvas size from the dropdown menu – we currently support all the below resolutions for photos:

1024 x 1024 px – 1:1 Square [Default]

1080 x 1080 px – 1:1 Square [Instagram Post]

1080 x 1350 px – 4:5 Portrait [Facebook Post]

1080 x 1440 px – 3:4 Portrait [Digital Art or Print Media]

1080 x 1920 px – 9:16 Portrait [Instagram Story]

1440 x 1080 px – 4:3 Landscape [Etsy Photo, LinkedIn]

1600 x 900 px – 16:9 Landscape [Twitter Photo]

2048 x 2048 px – 1:1 Square [Amazon/Walmart/Ebay Photos]

Once you’ve selected the size or aspect ratio you want, click “Apply” to have AI automatically resize your canvas photo. Note if going from shorter height or widths to longer the AI model will essentially fill in the gaps to match your existing prompt.

How to remove unwanted objects in my generated images?

Under the “Magic Edit” tab, click on the “Erase” button within the “Magic Erase or Redraw” section. Use the brush to paint over the unwanted object (feel free to increase or decrease your brush width as you need) then hit the blue arrow button to magically erase the unwanted objects from your image.

Note if there’s some “haziness” left behind you can use the “Redraw” feature with the prompt “naturally fill the scene to remove any haziness” as it can help.

How to add objects in my generated images?

Much like the Magic Erase option, you can also add objects by clicking on the “Redraw” button in the “Magic Erase or Redraw” section. Use the brush to draw where you want the new object to appear, then type a prompt of what you want to add.

For example: “Add strawberries on the table”. Keep it short and focus on the object for the best results. Use the “Undo” and “Redo” buttons to try different prompts if you need to tweak it further.

How to adjust the colors, brightness & saturation?

 You can easily adjust the hue, brightness or saturation for any layer including the entire canvas photos by clicking the “bulb” icon at the top right of your canvas. You’ll see a drop down where you can adjust sliders for hue, saturation, and brightness.

How to manually add shadows? 

While our final “Generate Photos” button will automatically add shadows and reflections, if for any reason you need to manually add some its easy to do by clicking the “cloud” icon on the top right of your canvas to add shadows along with the colors of your choice using a color picker tool. 

 

Is there a limit to the number of photos I can generate with the AI Photoshoot Tool in a month?

 Yes on the Starter plan it’s 1000 images/month and on the PRO plan it can be unlimited.

I tried so many times but can’t get the results I want. Please help!

Absolutely, we’re here to assist! Please reach out to us at support@productscope.ai, including the details below:

– A description of the images you’re aiming to create

– Examples of images similar to your desired outcome

– Details of your attempts, like chosen themes and descriptions

Can I upload my own background to use to place my products into?

Yes absolutely! Just click the “+” icon on the top left of the canvas and choose ‘Upload Background Scene’ from the drop down to upload your own reference backgrounds on to the canvas. Unlike product or branded assets, custom backgrounds scenes will not be automatically saved to your Assets tab. 

   

Amazon Listing Optimizer

What’s special about this Amazon listing optimizer compared to the competitors on the market?

The Amazon listing optimizer tool efficiently crafts product listings, incorporating high-impact keywords and weaves in strategic customer insights gleaned from your reviews. This approach has been shown to increase conversion rates by over 27% on average.

Our prices are also the lowest you’ll find for the quality you’ll get. It also includes a dedicated Customer Insights tab and a chatbot called ‘Dobby’ that you can use to get any Amazon specific seller related information/assistance.

How do I optimize my listing?

If it’s an existing ASIN, first go to its product detail page then click on the free Amazon customer insights chrome extension from ProductScope AI (orange bumble bee icon) in your Chrome or Brave browser. It should display some basic information like your product title, main image, best seller rank and number of verified reviews. 

Click on the “Analyze Reviews” button at the bottom and then on “View Insights” once it’s done. Once you have your Insights, it’s time to click on “Optimize Listing” so you go directly into the web app.

Here you can either use the free in-built Keyword research tool to generate your ‘Primary’ keywords for your listing or you can copy and paste from your external research/softwares of choice. Once you submit the keywords you can see your insights and listing title/bullets/descriptions etc all pre-populated. 

 Review all the information, make any edits as you need to the insights and then hit “Re-write for me” for each item in the listing to get a fully optimized listing variant that weaves in your top keywords and customer insights in a way that appeals to your target audience. 

 

What if I want to create a NEW listing that does not exist on Amazon yet?

No worries! In this case you just have to use your competitors ASIN in the customer insights extraction with the chrome extension then come into the listing optimizer.

Put in your keywords and then update the insights as you would want for it to apply to your own listing then re-write every aspect of the listing accordingly. Once you’re happy with it just export to PDF or .xlsx. 

 

What if my listing has no reviews to be analyzed when using the chrome extension? 

In this case you can use the normal process and just fill in the customer insights yourself based on your knowledge of your products benefits / motivations and features etc or you use your competitors ASIN in the customer insights extraction with the chrome extension then come into the listing optimizer.

Put in your keywords and then update the insights as you would want for it to apply to your own listing then re-write every aspect of the listing accordingly. Once you’re happy with it just export to PDF or .xlsx. 

 

What marketplaces and languages are supported?

faq

Works for all Amazon products (FBA, Merch by Amazon and KDP) across 13 marketplaces (US, UK, CA, Japan, Germany, India, Mexico, Spain, France, Italy, UAE, Australia, Netherlands ) with multiple language translations available as well. 

What languages are supported?

You can also run optimizations in 1 marketplace and have it translated into 6 different languages – Hindi, Spanish, German, Dutch, Italian and French. This makes it extremely easy to list in other marketplaces in a single click in minutes.

Is there a direct integration in the listing optimizer to my Amazon account? 

No, we don’t connect to your Amazon Seller Central account. You would use this tool separately and then take your final optimized listing output (PDF or .XLSX files) and upload it to your account yourself. If you’re an Ad Agency client with FosterFBA.com your account manager would take care of it for you of course.

What AI model is used for the optimization?

The free account uses GPT-3.5 from OpenAI and the paid accounts use GPT-4 the most advanced model currently available and we will ensure to always upgrade it as more and more newer models come out.

Are there any restrictions in place to ensure listing re-writes don’t get Amazon sellers suspended? 

Yes, we’ve taken precautions to ensure words that fall into the category of ‘abusive’, ‘NSFW’, or pesticide related ‘FDA approved, etc’ are not included in the listing. That said it’s always advised to do a manual review of your optimized listing before uploading to Amazon. 

 

Customer Insights Chrome Extension

What does the Chrome extension help with?

The Customer Insights Extension & Web Application grab insights across the following 6 data points:

 ProductScope AI’s Voice of Customer (VoC) Analysis utilizes Artificial Intelligence to analyze Amazon reviews, transforming them into meaningful insights about customer demographics, intent, sentiment, and motivation.

This provides a comprehensive Amazon voice of the customer understanding, which can help shape your product development and market positioning strategies across 6 unique data points:

 Customer Profile – The “Who”, “What”, “Where” and “Why” for your product based on your customers reviews

  • Pro Sentiments – Insights showcasing the positive sentiments of the ASIN product
  • Con Sentiments – Insights showcasing the negative sentiments of the ASIN product
  • Product Features – Features of the product taken directly from customer reviews in their language
  • Buyer Motivations – these are the reasons the customers are buying the product
  • Product Improvement Suggestions – Insights into what the customers are wanting or expecting the product to include or offer in order to be valued more

 Just hop onto your Amazon.com (or .any of the other 10 marketplaces) product detail page (e.g., www.amazon.com/dp/{ASIN}), click on our chrome extension (it looks like an orange bumblebee), and you can run ‘Analyze Reviews’ to grab your customer insights, then you can choose to open up any other web tool directly from the extension.
