A popular add-on for apparel, accessories, and footwear images.

A customizable addon in which Pixelz will adjust color brightness, saturation, hue, and other customizations, such as providing the PSD layers so your studio can make any final color adjustments if needed, in addition to color-matching or color-changing. There is no limit to what Pixelz can provide -- our Customer Success team can help you setup intricate requirements and customizations.

Color Correction

In our Photo Correction addon, we will correct the color to have a correctly adjusted white balance (color-cast removal), brightness adjustment, and use Photoshop's advanced algorithms for 'color denoising'. Although your studio is using their lighting and setup to be as perfect as possible, sometimes the original photos still need subtle adjustments. The camera flash, the lighting colors and angles... these can create issues that become noticeable under high-resolution zooms on your website, or when your images are used on posters, billboards, and magazine prints. Use our Customer Success team for free consultations about setting up your templates for perfect color corrections. Pixelz is more than an image editing company, we are here to help you succeed.

Texture Replacement

Popular in our apparel and furniture industry images, many of our top studios want to ensure the product texture is matching a swatch or reference image, which is often a close-up image of the product fabric. This service reduces product returns from customer dissatisfaction when a product does not match the texture seen in the product image of the online store, and saves studios significant time and effort.
