Technical Specifications

Marketing Images Specifications
The technical specifications for our Marketing content is in accordance with the global specifications:

Multiple Views
All products should have a maximum of three separate views when warranted per marketable face – a front view taken at 15 degrees top from centre is preferred for 3D images, however some products may require a steeper or shallower angle to display effectively.

For 2D images (images of products with negligible depth properties) a 0-degree plunge angle is permitted. The other two views are a right angle view and a left angle view where the appropriate side panel of the product relative to the front is visible (i.e. for the left angle view, the left panel is visible to the photographer).



Image File Naming Convention

A very specific file naming convention is used to manage and maintain the image library. The format consists of the product GTIN followed by other attributes: colour mode, orientation, language and alternate view indicator.
