We design studios for the automated recording of product photos with 360° views of products. An important part of our service is the automatic cropping of the product photos (removal of the background with alpha transparency). For applying this cropping, we need an expert on image processing, who transforms two photos of a product with different colored backgrounds to a PNG image without background. This requires that the difference between the two images is calculated, and this difference can be used as a mask. Thereafter, the product should be identified and cut to the outer dimensions.
In addition, attention should be paid to the speed of this process, because we need to process a large amount of product photos. Currently we use as the basis for the algorithm OpenCV on our Linux servers.
For more information and sample images we look forward to making contact.
