Technology demo: ghost mannequin effect

We’ve created the world’s first AI capable of generating ghost mannequin effect images automatically from two input images. We’re starting with pants and will expand further. 🙂

Why is this a big deal?

Retouching and merging a product and an inlay product photo to create ghost mannequin-, aka neck-joint-, aka invisible mannequin-, aka hollow-man- images is one of the most common image editing tasks in the Fashion world. Until now it was impossible to create this kind of image automatically due to limitations in the current generation of retouching and image editing software tools. Within autoRetouch, we will make it possible.

Love it! What should I do next?

Happy with your results? Not happy? Anyway, we’d love to hear your opinion.

You can also generate ghost mannequin images with autoRetouch today, by creating a workflow using our current background removal component. Learn more here.
