Ghost Mannequin Photo Editing

Stay on budget and sell
more products with ghost

Photos that bring your products to life are essential to generating sales. For fashion retailers especially, that means having real people wearing and using your product.

Live models can be expensive, make scheduling difficult and be unreliable at times. A mannequin, on the other hand, is a smart one-time investment. But you don’t want to showcase the mannequin. That’s when the ghost mannequin comes in.

Whether you need the entire mannequin or just a neck or a joint, professionally edited ghost mannequins will give your product depth. The more natural-looking photos appeal to customers, as they can envision themselves wearing your clothing and accessories. We’re here to help you sell more products with high-quality images.

How to add a ghost mannequin to your image

To add a ghost mannequin, or invisible mannequin, to your photo, you’ll first need an image of the clothing with the mannequin, and one without the mannequin (so that the inside label is visible). Put the two images together at the neck — you can do this with a clipping path. Now you’ll have apparel that looks as though there is an invisible mannequin wearing it.

Some ghost mannequins aren’t manipulated at the neck joint. Pants, watches and hats, for example, can also be edited to add natural volume and texture.

Clothing and accessories that are shown on invisible mannequin look more lifelike and natural, allowing customers to see how your product is meant to be worn in real life. We combine the ghost mannequin with other services, such as color correction or shadow effect, to achieve the brightest image possible.

When to use ghost mannequin

  • To add life, texture and volume to your products, especially apparel and accessories
  • If you need to cut the expense and challenges of hiring live models
  • When you want to show the back and front, or a 360-degree view, of your product
  • To showcase the inside of the apparel, as well as the brand and label on the inside tag(s)

When not to use ghost mannequin

  • If you want to show the products used in context, with real people
  • If tests on your website or digital advertising show that live models convert better

Typically, it is best to use a combination of ghost mannequin and live models. The ghost mannequin provides consistency for your main product thumbnails and images on websites or in catalogs, but live models add a human and relatability factor. It also puts the products into context for consumers.

How to add a shadow effect to images

For drop shadows, essentially, you are creating a gray or black shape that matches the shape of the subject of the photo. From there, soften the edges of the gray or black shape. This makes the shadow look more realistic and natural.

Remember, it’s essential to maintain accurate proportions between the shadow and the object. Any discrepancies can make your image look unrealistic, and cause customers to seek products from your competitors.

The direction from and angle at which the light is shining must also be consistent, especially when you’re creating multiple shadows in the same image. Keep in mind that the color of the shadow itself may need to be altered too. This is because shadows are darker when the light is closer to an object, and lighter when there is more distance between the light and the object.

These shadows show relation between the object and the background, whether the background is digitally added or not. The result is a more natural-looking and appealing image that allows your product to shine. This, in turn, can make customers more likely to buy your products.

When done with poor quality, shadow effects can harm your brand and the presentation of your products. It can create photos that look too staged or unrealistic, which can make consumers lose trust. And trust is essential in building profitable relationships and impressions with customers.
