chichi Posted May 12, 2010 Share Posted May 12, 2010 Hi Firstly, I've no doubt this subject is covered somewhere, but being completely photo illiterate, I've no idea of the correct terms to search for. I'm just starting my 1st online shop and want my pics to look professional, so am trying to get rid of the background, so the main item just has a white background. Some of my items are toys, perfume, etc, some are clothes shoes. I've been trying to either fill the background of the attached pic, or tried to follow one of the tutorials on youtube, but its not easy to follow when there are no verbal instructions and you haven't a clue! plus, when he goes to select the background, that tool isnt in mine. So came to a standstill. I got as far as a new layer ( which i have no idea what this is I hasten to add) then took an age outlining, which with so many curves to a human form, wasn't easy, then nothing else I clicked on seemed to work. the magic wand seemed to select the whole picture. When I tried the magic wand on its own, it took in the carpet too. When I reduced the ratio, it only highlighted part of the suit. I have LOADS of pics to upload to fleabay, so if there is an easy way to do this, I'd be eternally grateful to know how, as I'm climbing the walls and losing the will to live! Hope someone can help Annie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
