Product and planogram images are not ‘nice to have’ they are essential as most retailers and suppliers now use planograms with photorealistic images so called ‘live images’ these images make planograms look more professional and enable the end user to see more clearly what the layout will look like before any changes are made, studies have shown that imaged planograms have a higher success rate as they are easier to follow and require little or no training to implement.
Shelfstock offer a unique service for live images including
- Professionally photographed product images
- All images cropped to product edge and backgrounds removed
- Multiple views of product available including front, side, top and back
- Images especially formatted for space planning applications
- All product images include photo of barcode if needed

Images are saved in jpg (50-250kb) for faster printing and faster on screen planogram editing.
Higher quality jpg (500-1500kb) images can also be supplied for higher quality printing or presentations.
Backgrounds and Cropping
Images appear with a white background but no other products or props are in image shot. Images of contoured products are cropped to the products edge.
Front, top and side shots supplied as appropriate for each product which includes photo of barcode.
File Name Conventions
