Today images are being used to make all kinds of things stand out. New website, Pucker Images, streamlines the process by removing the background area surrounding the subject. Known as "cut-outs," such images can be quickly dropped into different environments and fit in. “Surprisingly for a mature industry, cut-outs are still hard to find, despite the benefits. We started Pucker Images to remedy that, especially for non-professionals and the time-pressed," said Tom Dow, founder.

Close-ups are another aspect of Pucker Image’s niche focus. “Close-ups are captivating because the subject is often shown in a fresh light. The benefit is creative impact, what most customers look for,” said Peyton Mitchell, Director of Photography.

The company focuses on universal and timeless subjects and creates versions of each for different tastes and executional contexts. Images are high resolution and downloadable as a JPG or PNG (transparent background layer) file. All are five dollars and completely royalty free.

Added Dow, “Images surround us more than ever because printing is now possible on almost any material or surface, and because images have become a staple of the online ecosystem. Today there are approximately 3 billion people online vs. 360 million in 2000, and we're only at 42% penetration. Such macro drivers make us think close ups without backgrounds represent a sizable untapped niche."
