A great feature in DecoNetwork is the ability to make your own dynamic product view which dynamically recolors in DecoNetwork. This great feature let’s you upload a simple grey scale image of a product (such as a t-shirt) and DecoNetwork will automatically recolor the image for each product color required (red, green, white, etc)
This saves you many hours of modifying product images for each color of your product. The following instructions highlight how to make a dynamic product view template image.
Check out this video and instructions below:
1. Use a graphics program like Corel PHOTO-PAINT or Adobe PhotoShop
2. Acquire designer-ready image
A “designer-ready” image should be acquired. It should be a flat, light colored image (preferably a grey, light blue or yellow color of the product) and you should have matching photos for each view such as front, back and sleeves.
Each image should contain one view at a time – i.e. Front view only.
Image should be 800 x 800 pixels in size at resolution 96 DPI.
Label this image layer ”color_1″.
2. Convert to 50% grey scale
The images should be converted to 50% grey scale. Where possible try to maintain shadows and highlighted parts of the images as this will improve the ‘3D’ look and feel of the image.
It is recommend you also have a transparent background to make your template suitable for most website backgrounds.
3. Output to .PSD format
The output format should be PSD.
4. Uploading to DecoNetwork
When you upload your template for a product view in DecoNetwork ensure you select the last option “Upload Custom Product View Template”.
