Remove shadows and creases and Brighten white background


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I am brand spanking new to Paint and completely lost! I was referred here when asking how to edit an image I took. I took and image of a shoe on an all white background. However, there are shadows and you can see the seams in the background. I would like to brighten the white and remove shadows so that the shoe image looks professional. I tried uploading the image but it would not allow it........i will attempt again

Hi Houseofcrystals,

Welcome to the Paint.NET forum!

This section of the forum is reserved for the publishing of tutorials. Hence your question doesn't really belong here.

I'll move this to the Paint.NET Discussion & Questions section for you.

Enjoy your stay on the forum :D

Try to remove the current background completely using the Magic Wand. Click on an area you wish to remove with the Magic Wand. The selected area is highlighted with blue. Make sure as much of the area as possible is selected, then press the Delete key. You might need to adjust MW's Tolerance (in the area just above the canvas work space), but that is the quickest way to remove the wrinkles, shadows and such. Use the Eraser to remove anything missed by MW. Then replace the deleted area using the Paint Bucket tool. Alternately, you might try painting over the MW selected area with the Paint Bucket tool. The choice is mostly about which method is most efficient and effective.

Ok...the guy that originally wouldn't share gave me a few tips. he said that he enhances only the white portion three times 100% each time, then he goes back with the history brush and fills in the areas he wants the pictures original state. sometime the white background has blue undertones and he has to isolate only the blue sections and desaturate them then enhance the white..........

Ok now how in the world do I do all of that? haha

ermmm...is he using GIMP? Paint.net doesn't have a history brush...

Anyhow, there was a similar question asked a while back that got a lot of replies and different methods of doing this...

Clicky!

Translation:

"Hello! You posted in my thread earlier asking how you could make your shoe look more professional. If I had an answer, I would tell you how to do it, :roll: but I don't use the program the way other artists here do. Basically, I use the pencil and brush tools along with the color window. I use a very small portion of paint.net, so my abilities don't reach the area your question is about. Sorry I can't help you, but I know there are plenty of others around here that can!"

Summary:

"You posted this question in my thread, but I'm afraid I can't help you much. I hope you get your answer soon!"

ok it wont allow me to upload any of the examples?????says file too big? seriously why is this so difficult?

The forum doesn't give you much file space to be sure. Try uploading the images to other sites like tinypic.com or photobucket.com , then using the image tags, post the pictures here like this:

[img=insert image url here]
