Auto Resize & Align Automation in Crop.photo leverages AI algorithms to bulk process your eCommerce images, uniformly resizing and aligning each product within the frame while replacing the background with a consistent backdrop. This ensures that a variety of products, from shoes and beverages to home decor, not only appear polished but also maintain a consistent eye level, enhancing the browsing experience across multiple aspect ratios on your online storefront.

  1. Online shoe stores looking to align product images for a clean, unified display.
