Fast Track lets you photograph without interruptions. The machine will automatically pick a name and then skips the export screen. Files are named sequentially based on the folder name. For example, if you are photographing in a folder called “Tops”, your files will be named “Tops”, “Tops+1”, “Tops+2” etc.
To turn Fast Track on or off, tap the toggle-switch in presets.
Overlays are a brilliant solution to keep your collection looking consistent.
For example if you are shooting numerous t-shirts you can apply the image of your first t-shirt. This will appear as a transparent reference displayed in your Live View. When you style each of the following t-shirts, you can position them all in the exact same way by covering the transparent image.
To Create an overlay
The file types come in four different file types.
Instead of having to edit and post-process your photos after your shoot, you can get inventive with presets. These will customize your images beforehand, saving you huge amounts time. Once set up, your shots will be automatically exported in your all the preset formats you have set up.

You can save files with different dimensions and pixilation’s, depending on whether you want the image as a thumbnail for a web page or a high resolution image for a print.
To ensure that these dimensions are are applied to all of your images in this preset, turn on fixed dimensions.
If Fixed Dimensions is OFF, your images will be cropped to fit the aspect ratio of the product.
If you have chosen JPG as your preset format, you can select the compression quality of your images. The scale goes from 1 to 10. 10 being the best quality and largest file size. Quality setting 8 is a suggested setting as it’s a good compromise between quality and file size.
If you have selected PNG as your file type, the quality is always going to be maximum.
Add a little something extra with a shadow and make the image stand out.
For your background, you can select a colour, apply an image from your stored StyleShoots Backgrounds, or remove the background by selecting Transparent.
