Need realistic 3D rendered product images? Then you’re in the right place! I’m a 3D Designer who makes product images every day, and here’s what’s currently trending in eCommerce product images:

●Product on white background:
Typically the main image, 2000 x 2000px for most eCommerce sites

●Product “dimension shot”:
Either dimensions lines with labels, or product placed beside a popular item, say an iPhone, to show the relative size

●Features and benefits:
A central images typically same as main image, with bubbles of zoomed in parts of the product, each bubble having a little text beneath. Sometimes this section can be turned into a full infographic/ product sell sheet if necessary

●Lifestyle images:
3D rendering or product photograph is “photoshopped” into a real world setting that we get from stock photos, to show consumers how good it’ll look on/with them, and cause them to aspire to buy your product

Depending on the nature of your product/ industry, you may require multiple of each of the above categories in order to effectively market the item, with an additional product transparent background for further usage by internal design team.

If you have any questions you can always hit me up in chat and we’ll figure things out :)
