The Problem

Poor-Quality Product Imagery On Pietra’s Marketplace.

Pietra faced an issue with poor-quality product imagery from factories on their marketplace. Many factories couldn't afford professional product photoshoots, leading to unattractive images taken with basic setups, sometimes even on factory shelves or against plain white backgrounds. These substandard images were affecting sales across the marketplace. To address this widespread problem, Pietra sought a partner capable of transforming tens of thousands of these low-quality images into appealing product pictures with aesthetic backgrounds, all at scale.

Many of our customers don’t have the infrastructure in place to produce high-quality product imagery. We knew that finding a way to improve the quality of the product imagery on our large marketplace was key to improving conversion rates, but we didn’t know how to achieve this at scale.

The Solution

Scale’s Forge Delivers Enhanced Product Imagery.

Scale and Pietra partnered to enhance product imagery on Pietra's marketplace using Scale Forge, an AI-powered marketing suite. Through Forge, they can create lifestyle backgrounds for products. To support Pietra's large-scale image generation needs, Scale introduced the Content Factory, utilizing fine-tuned models and humans in the loop. 

Pietra supplies the products, and Scale's Content Factory creates high-quality, contextually relevant backgrounds, identifying the best images with human oversight. Scale is the only company providing the latest cutting-edge Generative AI technology paired with humans-in-the-loop that optimizes image output for conversions.

Scale demonstrated the powerful combination of expertise in Generative AI and human-in-the-loop expertise to help us level up our marketplace offering. What we are now able to offer our customers is nothing short of magical.
