The advice and guidelines on this page apply to direct sales on Floriday.
Why are reliable and neat photos important?
The trade items you create in Floriday are shown to buyers via the Floriday Explorer. Based on the pictures accompanying these trade items, buyers place orders. Good photos make trade items more appealing. Therefore, it is very important that the photos are reliable and neat on Floriday. Besides buyers placing orders based on photos, there are also many buyers who forward your trade item photos to their own webshop, here too they like to see a representative overview in terms of photos.
Photos should preferably meet at least the following general guidelines:
Photo is a picture of the product (no text, logo or other object)
Photo does not contain objects/parts that are not relevant
Photo does not contain plants/flowers that do not belong to the trade item
The entire product is pictured (not just a detail photo)
Photo does not contain watermark
What is a representative photo?
A photo is representative when the product pictured is the same as what is delivered to the buyer. For example:
Colour(s) and composition
Any individual packaging is visible (with or without cover)
Advice for the best product photo
Want to make your photos as attractive as possible? Then follow this advice:
Background and ground are uniform in colour (white or light grey)
Plants/flowers are placed centrally (in the middle) in the picture
Plants/flowers occupy about 70% of the photo
The photo is not too dark
The photo is of good quality
Tip: Buyers like to see multiple photos of a product. For example the product picture, a detail picture and a mood picture.
Tip: Want to view, add and delete photos quickly and easily? Then use the 'manage photos' function in the catalog.
Go to the catalog and click on the manage photos icon.
You now enter the screen where you can easily manage photos. You will see your trade items listed below each other with their corresponding photos. You can also search for a specific trade item or select a collection.
This way, you can quickly delete old photos and add new ones.
Photos without professional equipment?
Don't have professional equipment to take good photos? Then you can use the RFH Photo app on Floriday. If you want to take the photo with your cell phone, open Floriday on your cell phone. If the photo is already on your computer, open Floriday on your computer.
Through the App store on Floriday (top right) open RFH photo.
Not linked to RFH photo yet? Go to Settings -> Apps and integrations -> Search for RFH photo -> Press Add application. You have now created a link between Floriday and RFH Photo. You'll always find it when you open Floriday's app store. After linking the app, you can also go directly to photo.floriday.io and sign in directly with your Floriday account.
Then go to Gallery and choose new photo -> Other photo type
Then select the item in question. The screen below appears. Turn on the 'save in catalog' slider here. This will also save the photo with the article in the catalog in Floriday and you can use the photo for direct trading.
Then click or press (if via mobile) on icon of the camera. On your cell phone, the gallery of your phone opens, where you can also choose to take a new photo. On the computer, the screen that allows you to search for the photo already saved on your computer opens.
Do you still want to edit the photo? Then click on the respective photo in the Gallery and then click on the 3 dots at the top left of the photo.
Here a menu appears that allows you to edit the photo. For example, you can remove the background of the photo, add a logo or detail photo, or resize the photo.
