Price in images, Settings section, new detection tools…

Information from feed to image

One of the most desired features from the very beginning was the possibility to display price directly in the image. Well, guess what? Now you are able to insert not just the price, but other elements as well. You may also choose whether you insert just the element or the element and text combined.


  • We added a whole new Settings section. You may choose between JPEG and PNG output extensions and in the case of JPEG, also set the compression ratio for faster image loading.
  • Output format management - you may now create and edit the format of output images.
  • Hide the products - easy way how to hide the products upon certain criteria (404 error, missing images, etc.).

Customized image sets
Load your personalized images directly in the app to be always disponible, so you don’t have to look for them in your computer anymore.

Detection of a replaced image on the same URL

In the case when you made any changes with your product image but the URL remains the same, some of the comparison shopping engines don’t reflect that and it may happen that your advertisement would keep running with the old image. This feature will help you to detect those changes.

Products with the identical image

In the products section, there is now a possibility to filter products with identical images and export the list into the CSV file.


Feed Image Editor now fully supports emojis. :wink:

Image validation and new settings

Image validation in product feed

What to do when the image dimensions follow the required criteria but in reality, the product itself occupies only a small part of the whole canvas, and the rest is just the white background? How to find out? Now, with the new feature built inside Feed Image Editor which we call Image validation, you can examine whether:

Project settings

We extended Settings section where you may:

  • Set the image output extension to JPEG and set the compression ratio (smaller the image size, faster the loading).

Template activity

One of many new features you would appreciate is the possibility to set the activity of your templates, which is especially useful when starting a new campaign. All you have to do is just to set the starting and the ending day, and you are ready to go - no manual adjusting anymore, everything works automatically, so you can invest all that saved time for other activities in your marketing campaign.

You find this new feature in the right control panel in template settings.

At the same time, in the template list, there is a notification about the templates activity period, so you get everything under control.

Image quality checkup

Among thousands of images in your e-shop, keeping an eye on every single one of them could be quite tricky. With this new feature, you can check the quality of all your images and have even better control of your image marketing campaigns. With just a few clicks, you can examine which pictures are not focused, have low contrast, or whether they have any glitches. For this purpose, we created a powerful machine learning model that we trained over the huge picture dataset. Moreover, with the possibility of user validation, you can manually evaluate every picture according to your subjective opinion and in this way, provide new data to improve the model. We are thus extending the features for image validation and watermark detection with another powerful tool that is going to make your image audit ever easier. Currently, in the BETA version, we can’t wait for your feedback. Let us know how it works. :slight_smile:

You may find the image quality check under Products.

Latest news in Feed Image Editor :new:

Remove background :scissors:

One of the standard requirements of shopping engines is a white background without disruptive elements. In the Feed Image Editor app you create a transparent background with literally one click. The tool allows you to bulk edit the background of all images. This option saves you a lot of time on manual adjustments. What are its other functions? :point_down:

Sensitivity of background removal
The new sensitivity setting brings three levels of background removal (low, medium, high). Use it when you choose how much the product background should be cropped. ✄ If part of the product seems to have disappeared during removal, set the effect to a higher sensitivity. It removes the background and is less aggressive. Conversely, if the background removal was not sufficient, choose a low sensitivity effect. The function will try to remove all background fragments. :feather:

Product backgrounds without jagged edges
The function works on the principle of machine learning and is fully automated. :robot: Edge smoothing works in bulk, and you don’t have to take any further action. You may notice improved results for all images.

Upscale :up:

With a redesigned user interface and background features, you can look forward to better results in the resolution enhancement process. :star_struck:

Automatic compression :hammer_and_wrench:

Reduce the data size of your images while maintaining image quality. Feed Image Editor allows you to set 3 different compression levels (100 kB, 200 kB, 400 kB). Then the function automatically selects large images and reduces them to the value you choose. Files that are smaller than the selected value remain unchanged. :compression:

Graphic elements :art:

You may find a lot of graphic options in the app. You can choose from prepared templates or stickers that you can edit as you need. Tailor them to the visual of your brand or themed campaign. Also, you can upload your images to them. :envelope_with_arrow:

⇨ Other options include strikethrough, curve, polygon, geometric shapes, labels, frames, etc. :paintbrush:

Fonts and font previews :capital_abcd:

⇨ You can currently find 150+ fonts in the app. :abc:

⇨ Create a text layer and preview it in different fonts. You can find this option in the right panel for each text layer. :eyes:
Preview of different fonts.

Entering text :leftwards_arrow_with_hook:

With text wrapping, you gain more control over formatting and customize it to your liking. :triangular_ruler:

Contrast checker :black_square_button:

Choosing the right contrast between text and background increases its readability.
In the case of low contrast, a color change notification pops up. If tuned correctly, the warning triangle disappears. :warning:

  • Reflection and shadow effects :dizzy:

Take advantage of adding a shadow and reflection to the source product images in bulk, which will get a 3D effect. :sparkles:

Grid (3) - magnet on / off :magnet:

The grid is located in the control panel on the left and has three different sizes. Using the grid, you can align the individual layers to your liking. :white_large_square:
How three types of grids and magnet works.

Restored user interface :slightly_smiling_face:

The new layout of the right panel will guide you step by step through the text descriptions. :handshake:

Watermarks in product images will no longer be a problem

We are pleased to introduce a long-awaited new feature. A watermark removal function :paintbrush: is a small miracle. But there is more. In this release, we’ve also adapted the compression options :scroll: to the requirements of the shopping engines. Below, you can find more detailed instructions. :point_down:

Removing watermarks :partying_face:

Many online store operators have problems with watermarks in product images when they want to advertise on various ad systems. According to the results of our audit, watermarks are 45 % of all advertising barriers. But with the new feature, you won’t be bothered by protective elements in your photos. How does it work?

Choose the product image where you need to remove the watermark. Whether it’s next to it or right on top of it, use a brush to mark the spot you want to edit.

And that’s it. The app easily handles the removal of various elements in this way. In addition to watermarks, you can remove, for example, logos, labels, or other text or shapes. After editing, the product image becomes flawless and is not deformed. See the results in the before and after examples:

Image compression by product comparison :compression:

So far, the app allows to reduce the data size of images automatically and in bulk at three levels: 100 kB, 200 kB, and 400 kB. Currently, a new options have been added:

  • 2MB (Heureka, Mall, Nabava)
  • 5MB (Alza, Modio, Domodi)
  • 8MB (Instagram, eMAG)
  • 16MB (Google Merchant, ÁrGép)
  • 30MB (Facebook 1:1)

The option to adjust the size of the images can be found in Settings, specifically in Project Settings. Choose from the available comparison engines and save it.

:white_check_mark: In addition to these changes, we’ve been working on bug fixes and other minor adjustments.

We have prepared a summary of the most important stuff from the latest releases. See how to download images from the online store to the app, how to work with transparent backgrounds in the export, and which templates are available in different languages. :star2:

Downloading images when the URL changes :arrow_down:

By default, we download images from the online store to the Feed Image Editor continuously to ensure that they are always up-to-date. From now on, it is possible to turn on a feature that will only download images from the online store to the app if the URL changes. If you have a lot of images, this feature will reduce the load on this side of the online store. If you update an image and the URL doesn’t change, it won’t get into the app and will remain the original image.

Transparent background of the output product image :white_large_square:

Remove the background, make it transparent, and send it for export. In the output, set the image format to .png. The images will go into the advertisement with a transparent background.

Work simpler with product images and improved options :tada:

From the hot summer release we pick 6 new features that shouldn’t miss your attention. Transparency settings, uploading more images, or changes for photos in layouts. :sun_with_face:

New product image transparency settings :eyes:

Change the transparency of the main image. This feature can be found in the fourth tab. Turn it on with one click. Adjust the sensitivity by moving the slider.

Adjust the transparency of any product image from the layouts :ghost:

Layouts can now be found in an improved form. You will see a preview of them on the right side. If you want to make them look more interesting, you can make alternative images transparent. This will highlight the main image.

Upload multiple images at once :infinity:

If you wanted to upload your own images to the app, you only had to do it one at a time. After this release, you can upload as many images as you need at once. It works the same way as before - by adding another layer.

:point_right: TIP

In the layout editor, you have the option to add an angle to the alternative images. You can rotate them in the direction you need.

Keyboard shortcuts :keyboard:

Control the application with keyboard shortcuts such as: copy/paste, undo/redo, rotate image, …

Load preview image by MERGADO ID / ITEM_D :bulb:

Choose which product image you want to display in the product preview. You can select it in the third tab, via ID / ITEM ID. In case you don’t want a specific image, you will find cubes on the left side that will always show you one randomly.

Fix the number of alternative images and photos in layouts :abacus:

We have increased the number of alternative images in a single layout you may select. So you can put a total of 20 photos (19 alternative and one main photo).

:white_check_mark: In addition to these changes, we’ve also worked on bug fixes and other minor adjustments.

Previews in template gallery and collages, new support formats and automatic template layout :tada:

Released - date and time: 19/07/2022 14:17

In the latest release news, we bring improved product image previews. Also, an option to set the transparency of any layer and automatic ordering of templates. We’ve also added new output formats, which can be found not only in the app, but also in the Image Validator. What formats exactly? We’ll show you below. :slightly_smiling_face:

Image previews in the template gallery :eyes:

See how your product looks in the pre-made templates that you can find in the app. Follow the steps:

  • Create a new graphic template
  • Select Product Query
  • Select the output format
  • You will see the available templates

A great benefit is the ability to customize the templates according to your own needs. Add elements, remove unsuitable ones or customize the color and font.

Preview images in collages :eyes:

The ability to group multiple images is a great way of showing details or components of a product. Simply add alternative images to the main photo, if they’re available. If not, they won’t appear.

:point_right: Do you want to know how to create collages? Learn it in this article.

While creating collages, see how the images look together. You’ll find this in the third step of editing, after selecting the Collage.

Transparency of any layer :ghost:

Make various elements transparent during the creation of your template. For example, use this for the main or alternate image, company logo (as a watermark), text, etc.

Automatic ordering of templates :reorder:

This feature will make you happy if:

  • You have several prepared templates and you do not know how to choose the correct order.
  • You want to apply the template to different Product Queries.

The golden rule when manually setting the order is to sort them from top to bottom, according to the number of products in the Product Query to which the template is applied. This means from the smallest to the largest.

If you want the app to do this for you, check Automatic ordering of templates. Your templates will be arranged by number in the Product Query. Later, when you change the number of products (add new ones to your feed / hide the ones you don’t want in the ad), the order will be changed. Opposite to that, when you know how your template order looks, you don’t need to turn on the feature.

:point_right: For a deeper insight, see the Set up a hierarchical order of templates in Feed Image Editor article.

New supported ad systems :new:

We’ ve added three more ad systems: Snapchat, Pinterest and Kaufland. You can find them in the editor in the output image format settings. These are the predefined and actual dimensions that your product images should meet.

In addition to automatic and bulk dimensions adjusting, the app will also compress them (reduce the data size) if necessary, so that they can easily get into advertising.

You can find all three formats in the Image validator. With it, you can easily check the state of your product images.

:wrench: We’ve also worked on bug fixing and other small things.

Improved graphic options, more than 20 pre-made templates –⁠ their new categories, or stickers :tada:

In this release, we fixed small errors and focused mainly on making the app’s graphic tools better. See what options have been added in Feed Image Editor. :dizzy:

Editable templates :new:

We’ve prepared templates that you can easily customize to your vision of an image campaign. Their previews appear on the right side of the app –⁠ after you select the format. See one example of how to edit them from the original version.

Categories of templates :clipboard:

We regularly add new templates. To make the choice easier for you, we have divided them thematically into categories –⁠ according to the type of campaign.

Stickers: autumn :maple_leaf:, winter :snowman: and ratings :star:

Choose from a new series of stickers. From now you will find new ones in winter and autumn themes. We have also added a ratings folder. With it, you can select the number of stars your product has received, for example from customers.

Lock layers :lock::unlock:

If you work with more complex graphic templates that contain multiple elements, you will appreciate the ability to lock individually added layers. A lock pauses all movement (editing) so the layer remains in place without change. Meanwhile, you can work with the other layers. If you need to edit a certain layer, just unlock it again. You can lock an unlimited number of layers.

New 84 backgrounds for product images generated by Midjourney :robot:

Released - Date and Time: 5/5/2023 07:06

84 backgrounds for product images :fireworks:

We continually update our inventory of pre-made graphic elements. This time, instead of a graphic designer, we enlisted the help of the AI tool Midjourney, which generated 84 backgrounds specifically for product images. Take a look at some of them:

Upload an image to the image directly from the element :heavy_plus_sign:

Previously, you could only upload the price or name from the feed into the images. Now, you can also include a different image in the product image, such as a brand logo or a graphic element for a free gift. All you need to do is include its URL address in any (even custom) element in the feed. It will then be automatically uploaded to the template.

Support for additional input image MIME types :raised_hands:

Now you can also upload images in the following formats to the Feed Image Editor:

  • image/pjpeg
  • image/avif
  • image/x-avif
  • image/x-ms-bmp

:wrench: In addition to these updates, we’ve also fixed minor bugs. If you have any further ideas for improving the app, don’t hesitate to write to us at support@feedimageeditor.com. :mailbox:
