Product Photos are the Most Important Product Information on Your Product Detail Pages


eCommerce sites are rapidly replacing brick-and-mortar stores and showrooms, but this doesn’t mean that customers don’t need to see the product.

Because this isn’t possible when shopping online, product photos/images are vital for businesses to effectively connect with consumers through their online platforms and give them the closest experience possible to in-person shopping.
