A Ghost Mannequin Service, also known as a Neck Joint Service or Invisible Mannequin Service, is a photo editing service provided by image editing companies which specialize in this popular ecommerce technique (the ghost mannequin effect). The fashion item (for example, a shirt) is photographed on a mannequin, and the image editors remove the mannequin and merge another image of the interior (the neck insert) to create a 3D look of the product, without the distraction of a mannequin or model.

Perfect Color Matching Between Model and Mannequin
Your studio cares about color. Your photographers already color calibrate their cameras and monitors, and maybe you even have in-house editors doing color matching. Pixelz has over 10 years of experience helping studios optimize their processes -- we've learned the best practices to save you thousands of dollars per month. Send us your reference image, and let Pixelz apply the color correction to both model and mannequin images. You'll save time, effort, and cost by using the mannequin studio setup for color calibration, allowing your model studio to not be slowed down by subtle lighting changes and recalibrations. You can also use grey cards and let Pixelz do the color calibration. Talk to one of our Customer Success experts to learn more about how Pixelz offers custom solutions and best practices to save you time and money.
Why use a ghost mannequin service?
Whether you are a growing studio, or an enterprise-level studio looking for opportunities, the use of invisible mannequin photography techniques can benefit your business. Some benefits include:
- Mannequin studios can quickly change garments, increasing daily throughput.
- No makeup artist or hair stylist required, and less support staff.
- Mannequin studios are ideal for color calibration, because less support staff must wait for lighting changes and recalibrations.
- Mannequin studios are less impacted by socio-political events, such as lockdowns (the show must go on).
- Mannequin imagery provides a website feature to boost sales and customer evaluation.
- Mannequin images can reduce the bias of the model's appearance, so that customers are less influenced by the positive or negative features of the model.
- Pixelz can combine images from live models, hangers, laid flat as 2D, or mannequin, so you are not limited to only using a 3D mannequin, but 3D mannequins typically create the best result and have the best sales.
- Neck inserts and apparel interiors often contain unique branding and flare, which adds value to the product.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a ghost mannequin service?
How do I find the best Ghost Mannequin Service?
First, the price should be fair, between $1.50USD and $3 per ghost mannequin image. Higher prices indicate the photo editing agency is not skilled in the ghost mannequin effect, needing more time (cost) to do the work. Secondly, find out if the company has high-value customers trusting their work, such as top fashion brands. The best ghost mannequin services will provide both FTP bulk uploading, and provide an online uploading platform with an optimized process for rejecting images if they do not meet your standards (and rejected images should be re-worked and sent back to you quickly, in the same day). Lastly, find out if the agency specializes in fashion ecommerce retouching, or does the company dilute their services with wedding, real estate, and portrait retouching which indicates they may not be specialized in the ghost mannequin effect.
How fast can Pixelz deliver finished Ghost Mannequin images?
Pixelz offers same-day delivery in less than 3 hours for Enterprise customers, and next-morning delivery for Professional customers.
