This article will describe how to set-up an invisible mannequin effect for your product images.
Invisible Mannequin Effect
Whether you know it as the invisible mannequin, 3D effect, neck insert or ghost mannequin, it's all the same! With the invisible mannequin effect, you can upload 2-5 images in your Pixelz order to be combined into one. An invisible mannequin effect can be used on your apparel images for sleeves, necks, waists, hats or any other section that needs a 3D effect.
Please contact our Customer Success Team via firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not sure if your images are shot correctly or suitable to apply the 3D effect.
Creating An Invisible Mannequin Effect
Create your Invisible Mannequin specification:
- Select other settings to your likings.
- Select the Invisible Mannequin option from the Add-Ons section.
Upload the product images and their inserts you need to combine using the Invisible Mannequin specification.
You can choose to combine your images manually or let our system detect and combine them automatically for you.
To select your images to combine, hold down the Control or Command key (depending on your system), and click on the images to multi-select. Once the images are highlighted, right-click on one of the images and click "Combine".
Once your images are combined, you will not see all of your images, just the single image for each product that has been combined. For example, if you upload 8 images and each invisible mannequin contains 2 images, you will only see 4 final images on the confirmation screen after they have been combined.
You will only pay for the combined image and not the individual images for the order. Once you have confirmed everything is correct, simply submit payment for your order and your invisible mannequin images will be back in your account within 48 hours.
How To Get Your Images Combined Automatically
In order to allow our system to automatically detect and combine your images, the naming convention of the images is very important. The insert file must be named as the main file + a suffix.
You do this by giving each new image in a series the same name and a different ending. You can use either a dash (-) or an underscore (_).
Examples of correct combined image naming:
– will be combined into myimage.jpg
– will be combined into imagename.jpg
