What’s a hero shot? Hero Shots are our premium quality service which includes everything in our classic service but with significantly higher resolution, extensive additional touch-up, and transparencies.
How much larger are the images? Shooting at 36 megapixels, each image comes off the camera at a whopping 7360 × 4912 pixels (before cropping). This adds up to a 4x increase in image size over our standard photos for maximum possible clarity. Final prints sizes up to 24″ at 300 DPI or 48″ at 150 DPI.
What extra touch-up will you perform? Often, product prototypes and manufacturing samples contain minor defects not representative of the final product. Our Hero Shots go far beyond our standard service in correcting many manufacturing errors such as crooked labels, mold seams, misaligned gaps, damaged box corners, and much more.
Includes transparencies. All Hero Shots include transparencies delivered in PNG format for easy incorporation into your designs.
When should I order hero shots over standard product photos? We recommend hero shots for use on the Amazon.com marketplace as the primary image in your listing. We also recommend Hero Shots any time an image needs to be extremely high resolution or when it will receive intense scrutiny such as with product packaging or advertisements.

1. To be exempt from additional charges, group arrangements must show the products in a non-linear fashion without white space in-between each item. Requests for products to be shot in a linear or grid-like fashion with white space in-between will be quoted as individual separate photos. In these cases each photo will be delivered to you separately and we will be happy to combine the separate photos into a group arrangement for you at no additional charge.
2. Some product types require extensive prep, styling, and editing. These include wristwatches, window treatments, bedding, and similar items. Products of this type are not eligible for the Classic service, but may be photographed under our Hero shot service.
