I came across this tutorial in a knitting community on LiveJournal on how to Photoshop a white background on your knitting. Those who read other knitting blogs may have seen these before. I have Photoshop CS2 and Elements on my computer, but truth be told I only use Elements to crop and resize photos. I know, I know… I should really learn more about it, but I have a difficult time just “playing around with things” to learn them – I need a really good book, person or class to teach me certain programs that are really in depth like Photoshop is. At any rate, I’m really proud of myself for learning something new in Photoshop! I took a photo of the project I started last night for my sister. It’s a hat. I’ve never gotten such true color in a photo and now I know how to lighten photos up (any photos) and get a more true color from a photo I took.
Here are my efforts:
Of course, this is only my first attempt and I know the bottom of the photo could use a little work, but because of the lighting in the original photo and the shadow it caused on the bottom it was really difficult to completely get rid of it. I just wanted to share this in case there’s anyone else out there with Photoshop that hasn’t done this before and wanted to know how to do it.
