    I just created a eyewear product photography website.
    It's first time I use shopify platform to save money.
    I am not satified with the way shopify compressing the image after upload , the photo quality is reduced by 10-15 %.
    Anything can be improved user experience. pls comment.

    Post your photos here. People are weary of clicking suspicious links, especially from new members.

    .jpg is a "lossy" format; each time it's opened, edited and saved, there will be data loss. .jpg is a FINAL/display format, NOT a working or processing format. Do ALL of your processing as either raw, .tif, or .dng. You also have some NASTY CA going on in some of those images. Time to invest in a better lens.

    Thanks for your advice.
    I am targeting e-commerce sellers only, they need only 2000 pixel max , so it's not necessary to shoot in raw.
    I have removed some from the web.

    That's lazy. Shoot in RAW. There's way more to consider than image size.

    Agree with the above, but also noticed some of the backgrounds are not 100% white. Make sure that all RGB are 255.

    JPEG is fine as long as you got it right in the camera. You don't want to do heavy editing in JPEG but minor editing to an image that was correctly captured in the first place will do just fine. I do web product photography every day and I don't fuss with raw files at all with it. It is a waste of time. I do edit in raw for serious photography but web images like yours (and mine) are simple low res shots on a blown out background. They aren't art. They are simply accurate representations of appearance. Incidentally you forgot to deal with the gray in the nose area of the glasses. Otherwise I think your shots are perfectly fine for an ecommerce web site.

    Thanks all.
    After paying attention to your comments, I 've changed the way to process images, my photos are now getting better.

    Thanks ,
    The gray area is formed by either dirty or not flat seamless paper.
    It's hard to see by eye, but the camera is capable to catch it.
