Square releases Photo Studio app
Online payment processor Square has launched a new product in Canada called Square Photo Studio. It consists of a mobile application with which users can take pictures of their products and upload them directly to a Square item catalog or online store. The app provides prompts intended to produce the best possible photograph. It also isolates the product from the background and allows users to choose stylized scenes that include new backgrounds, shadows and colours.
“It’s no secret that products with professional-looking photos perform better than those without,” said David Rusenko, head of electronic commerce at Square. “Unfortunately, the cost, skill set and labour involved with taking those photos was often prohibitive. Now, with Square Photo Studio, sellers can give their items the look of a professional photo studio shoot from the comfort of their home, the office or on the go.”
