Shareable Images (Zazzle Specific)

I'm thrilled to add this new tool to the blog list! Designed to help Zazzle designers, Shareable Images Tool by picks the preview images from a Zazzle collection you selected, automatically cuts out all the white space in the image, resizes products previews so they're sized in relation to each other, rearranges them into a one- or two-column format and (optionally) puts them on a background of your choice.

The tool includes several premade backgrounds with some lovely decorations. It can be used for collections as well as single products. The goal of Shareable Images is to help you create a much better looking image for when you share your collection online or by email. See the example below.

Give Shareable Images a try and share the word about it if you like it. Giving credit to would be helpful as well.

Here is the Color Me collection from my Zazzle store:
