The Invisible mannequin technique is used to make it look like an invisible model was wearing a garment during a photo shoot. This effect is realised by taking two separate images: one of the garment on the model and one of the inside of the garment. Invisible mannequin is used for upper garments – jackets, sweaters, vests, shirts, undershirts, etc. – but also for pants, dresses and skirts. Invisible mannequin is often combined with (simultaneous) processes such as De-creasing, Reshaping, Cleaning, Recolouring, etc.
Image manipulation is a highly popular element within our portfolio of image treatment services and is a specialised area of graphic design which involves taking one part of an image and blending it into another. The intention is to create a finished composition which is seamless and looks natural – uniting the best qualities of each picture. Photopixc Studio has considerable experience within this highly skilled area of image processing. We provide all types of image manipulation – from adding speed effects or dramatic lighting changes, to manipulating perspective and scenic interpolations. Perhaps, for example, you want to remove a mannequin from a picture and replace it with a copy of the background to give the illusion of a complete photograph. Once our skilled operatives have worked their magic, you’d never know that the finished creation is not the original.
The art of image manipulation requires something more than just technical skills and expertise – it needs a high level of creativity and experience in order to understand the best way of presenting a photograph. We work closely with out clients to understand what they want to achieve and then go about making that happen – efficiently and diligently. We use a number of image manipulation software packages such as Photoshop and Illustrator, which means that we can deal with any type of file and can export to whichever format is best for you.
Particularly popular with commercial publishing organisations, our image manipulation operatives are able to work to an exacting and highly detailed brief – resulting in flawless images which won’t fail to impress. Whether you want to create the ultimate fantasy beach for a magazine feature, or need to composite different products into the same picture for a catalogue, Photopixc Studio can easily handle the task. Our operatives are highly skilled and after 4 years training at the Graphic Arts Institute, members of CPI graduate with a diploma in graphic design, well-equipped to deal with the exacting image manipulation requirements of our clients.
