Quick Guide to Image Recognition: Should You Rather Crop or Mask Reference Images?

Members of our developer community often request us to share useful tips and tricks with them. One of the most exciting questions we regularly encounter are related to image recognition and AR performance.

Top 7 Tips to Choose the Best Images for Image Recognition

One of the reasons why we love Image Recognition and AR is that they can be used for so many different experiences on so many target objects, from photos to posters to product labels. (These customer projects perfectly prove that.) 

However, a well-working Image Recognition or AR experience starts with selecting the right targets – in Catchoom's terminology, the right reference images – for your experiences. 

This is why we've collected some tips to help you prepare the right collection of images for our CraftAR Image Recognition solutions. We'll also present you your new best friend, our extended Image Quality Rating.
