    For those who have a Blomming shop with numerous products or with different categories of products, it can be useful to have an instrument that helps surf through these and manage them better. Collections are for these very needs: they are thematic groupings of products that are useful in organizing your shop and directing clients towards their desires. When should you make use of the Collections function? For example in a shop that deals in clothing, where it is useful to distinguish between ‘male’ and ‘female’, ‘winter’ and ‘summer’ etc. Collections are also useful for products that pertain to a particular event such as ‘Christmas’, ‘St. Valentine’s’, ‘Discounts’ and all sorts of categorizing needs.

    We know how much you care about your creativity – and so do we! Placing a “watermark” on the images might be a way to protect yourself, but remember that every visitor of your Shop wants to see the products clearly. So, if you really want to put your logo in the pictures, try to do it discreetly and follow this tips:

    • It must be transparent enough
    • It should not have contrasting colors with those of the object
    • It should also be positioned not to cover what you want to sell.

    The look is important!

    PLEASE NOTE: in order to provide a more enjoyable shopping experience on Blomming, images without watermarks (and without other kind of graphics) will have more chances to be featured for special reports such as our Newsletter, Storefront or Facebook Page .

    Every day we are exposed to an incredible amount of images. How do we pay attention on one, rather than another? A good aesthetic attracts our attention more, and in a photograph that is generally made possible by three main factors: background, lighting and focus – as well as, of course, by the subject.
