First Impression

  • High contrast between the object and its background
  • Objects with clear identifiable borders
  • No tiny details, scattered hair, or leaves that are a tough task both for humans and AI
  • No semi-transparent details like glass or water distort the object’s borders
  • No shiny, glossy, or reflective surfaces make it difficult to identify the object
