Polyvore’s Image Masking (or someone I am really proud of)

before after

Cindy is a member of Polyvore’s awesome engineering team.  She just put up a post on our eng blog about how she improved Polyvore’s automatic image background removal tool. This level of attention to detail and polish has always made me proud. The change was part of a larger project to enhance the overall image quality on Polyvore and I hope she will get around to writing the entire series of posts.

Under the Hood: How we Mask our Images



  1. Hi Pasha, thanks for having found/co-found Polyvore. As a fashion blogger, it really makes a difference in what I serve my readers. It also leaves out the need to use/buy software like AI/Photoshop/InDesign if you just want to arrange stuff. Can I suggest that we have an option of saving the sets in JPeg, GIF or even PDF? You could automatically add a Polyvore mark by the side if you want. This helps bloggers use the images in Google+ or even as a FB profile pic. Just a tought. Thanks again!

  5. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you
    don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Many thanks!

  6. Though the shape of the 2014 BMW X5 is similar to the outbound generation, its front fascia now features a large dual-kidney grille connected to
    sweeping LED-accented fronts lights, meaning the model’s additional sports performance.
    The inside on The X5 is superb.
