Platform Updates: More tools for easy markup and image review

At Pixelz, we believe that our customers are the heart of our business, and we're committed to providing you with the best possible experience every time you use our platform. That's why we're always working to improve our product and make it more user-friendly, so you can focus on what matters most - creating amazing visuals. In this post, we'll be sharing some of the latest updates we've made to the user interface and experience and how they can help you streamline your workflow and get more done. So, let's dive in!

What’s New

Custom Background

We’ve added different background colors in CloseUp so it’s easy to see what your product images will look like in different environments. Have a white background on your PDP? Now you can see exactly what your image will look like.

Thumbnail Gallery in CloseUp

You may have already noticed that when you are reviewing images in CloseUp there is now a thumbnail gallery. We hope this makes it easier to navigate to different images or compare images of the same order.

New Tools in MarkUp UI

We released new tools on the MarkUp. You can now delete individual markups using the eraser tool. If you are trying to erase the only markup left on an image, you will be asked to confirm to ensure that you want to delete the comment as well.

Another new tool we introduced to MarkUp is the Eyedropper tool. You can now measure the RGB and HEX values of a specific pixel based on the mouse position.
