To this end we provide a complete end-to-end connection to the Shopify ecosystem.

Business users would use the refined art browser to search and find the required images from the vast library of images. Once selected they can examine the art in more details and see suggested similar images. In the next step they would size and optionally frame the art. For final confirmation the user can now view the finished art in various room views or use the realistic 3D augmented reality (AR) to view the art as it would actually appear in their environment.
