White Backgrounds-Here's another quick way to do it!

posted on 7th of april, 2010

You've photographed your subject against a white background, but it still isn't quite as white as it needs to be, here's what you do.

In photoshop go to Image adjust>Curves>when the box pops up go to the top right hand side and pull the diagonal line to the left, voila! A nice white background.

Well feel free to take a look at my images and see if they are destroyed by using curves:)

You have to be careful doing this, as moving the white point lifts all values to some degree, and you risk clipping your highlights if they are too close to being white.

I always duplicate the image first:)

Since curves usually destroy the original image too I do not use this method
