Fashion Flatshot - Perfect for Fashion Photography

This affordable system is ideal for fashion photography or anything suitable for a top shot: signs, pictures, publications, clocks, puzzles etc. It can create images with a pure white background, or use our software background removal algorithm to give a transparent background and leave a smooth edge around the product.



Flatshot Photography Equipment

PhotoStudio Image Creation Software

The software automates the image capture process by controlling and storing the camera settings and output format. This can include filetype, size, editing and save location, and can save multiple versions of these choices, simultaneously.


transparent png
The software features Auto PNG image creation. When the Auto PNG feature is activated, simply press snap and the software automatically detects and removes the background, creating the perfect cut out image.

You can then save your images as PNGs, TIF's or TGA's with a transparent background, or JPGs with a pure, shadow free white background. Or both!


The Fashion Flatshot with its uniform under-lit surface and overhead product lights creates high quality, web-ready images in seconds.

The Fashion Flatshot is software controlled via USB, allowing you to adjust the camera settings and image outputs, when you have found settings you like you can save these as presets. Simply press ‘snap’ and images are automatically sent from the camera to the computer for viewing, editing or printing.

With our ‘one click’ feature, your image is taken and exported in a variety of pixel sizes, file types and image resolutions. Once you have setup these presets your images can be exported just the way you need in a single click!

It doesn’t stop there, this breakthrough image authoring tool creates .PNG/.TIF/.TGA files with transparent backgrounds in seconds. No more cut-outs or masking, allowing you to choose the background image or colour of choice.
