New: Level-up Your Product Content With 360° Photography

by ,


Brands are adding 360° product imagery to their sites and increasing online conversions by as much as 47%. Are you? Whether you’re in B2B or B2C, we’ve compiled what you need to know about 360° spinsets and how to take them from creation to your downstream channels.

What is 360° photography?

360° photography is a collection of 2D images that when viewed sequentially creates a “flip-book” effect that typically spins around a product. These spinsets are usually created with 24 to 96 JPG files and are managed as a ZIP archive. They are often published on a website through an image viewer that stitches the images together to provide a fluid, seamless interaction. Some 360° photography even goes above and below an object or shows animations of a product in action.

Automate 360° photography creation

While you can purchase 360° photography equipment for your in-house studio, you can also expedite your 360° spin photography creation with the help of companies like Snap36, a 1WorldSync company. 

Snap36 is the leading provider of affordable e-commerce product photography for brands, distributors, and retailers. Their innovative robotic equipment and workflow software efficiently automates image capture to deliver 360° spin photography. In fact, they are the only Amazon content partner that can get your 360° images uploaded and published within one week.

Widen has partnered with Snap36 to provide customers an operationally seamless “physical-to-digital” product content creation process.
