Photos are necessary as they bring more lead, thus generating sales for your products and services. For retailers of fashion products, you need human models wearing and using your products as a form of advertisement.

For several e-commerce stores and catalogs, mannequins are preferred to human models to create a 3D effect of different garment items like; trousers, shirts, jackets, swimsuits, cardigan, lingerie, and sometimes pieces of jewelry.

Product owners prefer using mannequins to human models because live models can be unreliable, expensive, and making a schedule can be difficult. In contrast, a dummy is a one-time investment that is always at your disposal. You don’t need to showcase the mannequin in your photos, and this is where the ghost mannequin comes in.

Ghost Mannequin Effect

A ghost mannequin effect is used on photos of products with mannequin or human as their models, after the picture of the product has been taken, the final output will require removing the background and the mannequin in the photo and thus give it a ghostly or hollow appearance (that is where the name Ghost Mannequin Effect is gotten from, it is also known as Invincible Mannequin Effect).

This effect can also be created using removable ghost mannequins or transparent mannequins, but further editing is still needed to perfect the effect after the photo has bee taken. This is a significant reason many photographers avoid this transparent / ghost mannequins to reduce time and money spent because ghost mannequin photo editing is more cost-effective.

Neck Joint

As an e-commerce retailer who sells shirts, it is unnecessary to capture the whole body of the ghost mannequin. There is no point showing the pants and shoes if you only want to sell a shirt, so only the upper body part of the ghost mannequin will be shown when displaying the product. If you fall in this case, you only need to hire our neck joint ghost mannequin service. This service will show only the neck and arms area of the shirt as worn by the ghost mannequin. Everything below the waist will be cropped out.

When the mannequin is removed from the image, the neck area would be empty. Our editors will connect the back on the neck and pictures of the front parts to make a full shape and a realistic ghost mannequin effect.

Examples of products in this category: Trousers, jackets, shirts, lingerie, vests, etc.

Sleeve Joint

This category is for clients with photos that need to remove the mannequin from the hollow points of the sleeves and make a ghost effect. The item needs this service category to get a 3D shape. When the mannequin has been removed, our editors fill-up the empty hollow parts in the sleeves.
