How to create unlimited beverage product images with AI

Take simple photos of your beverage

First, take a few photos of your beverage from different angles. Don't worry too much about the background. For now, just make sure you have good lighting where you are photographing. Natural sunlight often works best.


Upload your photos to Pebblely

Pebblely is an AI tool for generating creative product images for your website, social media, email, and ads. Once you upload an image, Pebblely will automatically remove the background for you. You can adjust the background removal if you wish.


Resize, rotate, and reposition your photo

Before you generate your product images with Pebblely, you can resize, rotate, and reposition your photo on the canvas. This allows you to get multiple different styles with a single image.


Pick a theme (or go pro)

To keep things easy for you, there are several pre-defined themes for you to choose from. If you are on the paid plans, you can customize the themes to match your brand.


Generate unlimited images of your beverage

Pebblely uses AI to create new beautiful photos of your beverage product, including shadows and reflections where appropriate. If you are on the paid plans, you can generate as many images as you like and download them at a higher resolution (2048x2048).

FAQs about beverage photography

I have a limited budget. Do I really need models and props to get nice photos?

Oh, definitely not. Lifestyle shoots with models are nice but can be very expensive. They are not always necessary. But some basic props, as simple as things you can find at home, can help to spice up your photos. Also, some merchants make 3D renderings of their beverage products so that they can control the shadows, reflections, and sweat digitally. Of course, you can also use Pebblely to help you generate some interesting backgrounds, which can include people!

How do I make the drink look cold in my photos?

Ah, I'm thinking about that ice-cold beer right now. Great question! There are a few tricks you can use to make your drink look cold: Use ice cubes (real or fake) or a frosted glass to make the drink look chilled. Have some water droplets on the can, either from actual condensation or from splashing some water onto it. Finally, think about the setting. A snowy background, a white misty fridge, or a cold white marble tabletop can all make the drink seem cold.

How can I make the colors of the drink pop in my photos?

First, ensure you have good lighting where you are shooting. Second, play with your camera's white balance to match the lighting conditions. Finally, use photo editing software to adjust the colors and contrast. If you can shoot in the RAW format, it will make post-processing easier.
