Anthropologie product images now clippable to Polyvore


Oh heck yeah! Anthropologie has updated the zoomify on their product pages, and I am ecstatic to report that you can now clip product images to Polyvore directly from the product page! Hooray!

All of the outfits I constructed last week were through Polyvore and let me tell you Anthro didn't exactly make it easy. Because the product image photos were built in flash you couldn't clip them (Polyvore only recognizes static photo types like .jpg) so you had to clip products from the section pages and then the photos were tiny and it just didn't look quite right. Plus, the product page links didn't work half the time...they would just take you to the section pages. Now that problem should be solved!

I don't know if this is just a coincidence or if Anthro was listening but either way I am grateful. I'll try out making some more outfits this week to celebrate.

oh yay :) i don't use polyvore as much as i should, and i'm always meaning to because taking actual pictures of yourself is such a pain in the butt! this will make it easier for sure.

anthro has also changed the way you zoom in on images (rollover instead of clicking a magnifying glass, like nordstrom's website) and they now show thumbnail previews of the other views below the main product image. definitely an improvement, although i notice images are taking forever to load and sometimes not loading at all (could be because i'm temporarily in india though, although it wasn't happening before today) so it may not be a seamless transition.

The zoom is SOOOOO much better. You can actually see what the fabric looks like and the details. This will take a lot of the guess-work out of it.

Yay! When did this happen? I was Polyvoring yesterday (after a bit of a hiatus) and I was clipping from Anthro and it was still the same. Must check out tonight...
