The Art of Deception
Render vs Real
How can a buyer evaluate the quality of a supplier’s work when the supplier displays computer-generated images on their website? The reality is that buyers have no idea of the quality when rendered (computer generated) imagery are used in place of actual photographs.
Many suppliers use computer generated (rendered) images to represent their work and the products they offer. Suppliers who do not state that the pictures presented are computer generated are committing the ultimate deception. This practice gives a buyer a false representation of the quality and craftsmanship of the supplier’s work, and not disclosing the fact that images aren’t real is an act of deception.
During the 15 years that Crystal Sensations has been in operation, we have had numerous customers come to us with disappointment, anger, and frustration after receiving poor quality work from a supplier that displayed incredibly detailed “images” on their website. In our Blog, we showcase Manuel, an artist from Spain. A supplier deceived Manuel into thinking the work they offered was of very high quality, only to find that the actual product was flawed and vastly inferior compared to the images he saw.
Crystal Sensations uses only actual photographs to showcase our work. The detail seen in our images are of real engravings completed for our customers. We have never used “fake” pictures of our work. If you are visiting our website for the first time and have never used our services, be confident that the images you are seeing are real, and are accurate representations of our artist’s talent and that of our engraving technology.
At Crystal Sensations, seeing is believing. Anyone exploring the internet looking for subsurface engraved crystal must ensure that the images they are looking at are real, and not “synthetic” images generated by computer software. We offer this information so that buyers can make more informed decisions when looking for a supplier of engraved crystal.
