Take simple photos of your jewelry

First, take a few photos of your jewelry 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 jewelry

Pebblely uses AI to create new beautiful photos of your jewelry, 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 jewelry photography

How can I capture the sparkle of the jewelry yet minimize reflections and glare in the jewelry?

Bling, bling! Here are a few tips: One, use diffused light (soft light) so that the light is spread evenly across the jewelry and doesn't create harsh shadows. Two, place the jewelry at different angles from the light source to adjust the reflections and glare. Finally, you could use a polarizing filter for your camera lens to manage reflections and suppress glare. In the worst case, you could use Photoshop or Lightroom to edit your photos.

How can I make my jewelry look larger or more dramatic in photos?

Ha, first note that bigger does not always mean better. It depends on who your target customers are. But if you still want to make your jewelry look larger and more dramatic, here are some tricks: One, use a macro lens so that you can take closeup shots and blur out the background. Two, experiment with shadows and highlights to add depth and dimension to the jewelry. Finally, try different angles. Shooting from above or below can make the jewelry appear bigger. (Bonus: A sneaky trick is to use models with small hands and fingers. Shhh.)

How do I make my jewelry photos stand out on social media or ecommerce marketplaces?

To stand out, your visuals need to be different. People stop scrolling when something in the sea of sameness attracts their attention. While it is tempting to follow popular brands, you might want to create your unique brand personality, colors, and vibes, and break some photography conventions. For example, you might not need high-quality photos if you are not targeting high-end consumers. Most brands are serious but what if you use memes? Regardless, try to keep your content consistent to develop your brand. Also, consider if photos are the best medium. For jewelry such as bracelets or necklaces, you might want to use videos to capture how they move as the model moves.
