To ensure workflow and images that can convert, Photoshop shortcuts will be required. Clipping Path shortcuts will ensure consistency in a large batch of product photos. This blog will discuss some convenient shortcuts.
Clipping Path Keyboard Shortcuts in Photoshop
When you plan to use Clipping Path to separate a product image from its background, there are a series of key command shortcuts you can use to make the process quicker and easier.
For quick clipping paths, using both of your hands is advised. Use one hand for typing on the keyboard and the other to draw with the mouse or stylus.
There are some convenient Clipping Path Keyboard Shortcuts. For example, you can use SHIFT+CTRL+N to create a new layer and SHIFT+F5 to fill a layer with colour. Likewise, there are shortcuts in the Layers and Paths panels.
Creating a Crop Preset for Product Images in Photoshop
You will want to set up your Crop tool to quickly crop similar product images so they will all be the same size and resolution. You can access the Crop tool by typing C. You will have access to a series of options at the top of the Photoshop window once the Crop tool is selected. In the first dropdown in the Options bar, choose W x H x Resolution.
Once you set your dimensions, choose New Crop Preset. With your crop preset created, click on any product image with the crop tool, select your custom preset from the W x H x Resolution dropdown and use the guides to position the subject of your photo.
Exporting Images from your Website in Photoshop
To make it convenient, set up your Quick Export settings and then rapidly export each file into a web-ready format. There is an option of Export Preferences to help you in making Quick Export settings.
After this, you will have to choose the file format you want your image to export to, the location where you want the exported file and what colour space you want the exported file to be in.
Making your background a true white in Photoshop
Some editing is required to make sure the white background in one image has the same brightness as the background in the next. Use Eyedropper to help you do just that in a matter in seconds.
With your product image open in Photoshop, choose Image>Adjustments>Curves from the dropdown menu at the top of the application window. You can use the shortcut by CTRL+M to bring up Curves. In the Curves dialog box that appears, you will see three eyedropper tools at the bottom of the window.
Keeping the eyedropper tool selected, click on the background of the product image. Then you can choose the darkest part of your white background that is not a shadow. The Eyedropper will turn the pixels white, and will adjust the rest of the image accordingly.
In a nutshell, using Photoshop shortcuts will make the editing job easier. If you are still facing problems in photo editing, it is advised that you outsource the photo edits.
