Tips to get white background on your product images

 

Here are some general guidelines that work with most image editing software programs and a digital camera.

 

  •  First, take the picture using a background color that is solid, not the same color as your product, is not shiny and without alot of wicked texture.  I have always had great luck with a light blue vellux blanket.

 

  • Second, use the correct settings on your camera with the correct lighting!

 

  • Third, bring your image into your image editing program, then use any of the following tools to rid the background, polygonal lasso, magic wand, magic eraser, or the eraser. The tool depends on the image.  Try them all.  It"s whatever works and whatever is easiest!  Clean it up the best you can zooming in to see what you are doing. Jagged, highly textured edges are the toughest.  I like to use the polygonal lasso and the zoom in real close and soften and touch up the edges with your eraser.

 

  • Fourth, add another layer below your image and fill it with white.
