Cut out: When the product has only a white background and nothing more.
Lifestyle: When the product has been shot in a styled room to look like someones home.And don’t forget to SAVE after completing each page so that you don’t loose all your hard work if you accidentally close the window. 5) Choose at lease 1 category: For each image you must choose at least 1 category that your product fits into. Journalists will use categories to generally search an entire section or to narrow down their keyword search. ie yellow living room- sofa, vintage bathroom-lighting, or kitchen-gadgets. 6) Include the product price: It’s great to include the price with each product image so that journalists can have it on hand. But if you do custom work it may be impossible for you to quote a single price. If that’s the case just leave this space empty and make a little note in the product description. 7) Add a link for each image: Adding a link for each image helps to gain traffic to your site and allows journalists to explore your company a little bit more. This is also really beneficial for you because it allows journalists to see all your fab products as well as any promotions you might be having or new lines launching that they haven’t yet seen on Press Loft. 8) Include shipping information: If you ship globally or even just locally, you can let journalists know by filling out the international setting section. 9) Once you have finished filling in all your product details just hit Save. Hitting Save, sends the images to the Press Loft Team who then go through each image, double checking for any typo’s or mistakes and adding any more keywords if we can, before setting your image live on site for all to see 🙂 * If you have hit Save and the image says this image is incomplete instead of awaiting approval you can check the top right progress bar to see what information is missing. The clone tool is an amazing time saver. Once you have fully completed an image you can then duplicate all of that information onto any other image in your collection. This is especially helpful when you have different shots of the same product or very similar items in a collection. To use it, just start typing the product name that you want to copy, select the image from the drop down list and all of the fields will automatically update for you. After cloning, go through and make any relevant changes to the description and keywords. For example, if you clone the details from a similar image in your collection just make sure the price, the link and image style all still correct. Also double check if any keywords need to be adjusted like color, style or texture ( if you have say, a rug collection that just changes in color or pattern, you can clone one and update whatever is different between them). Its also important to note, that when you clone an image it will also change the product name, so you will need to re-name the image before you save it or you may find it difficult to tell images apart later on.
