Default FotoFuze for easy black or white backgrounds in your photos

www.fotofuse.com

I just happened upon this free program. You can use it to produce a flawless background for you photos, if you are so inclined. Takes about a minute. I'm going to use it when I get around to photographing some kimonos. You have to take the photo against a solid background.

Before



And after

Oh, Kevan - thanks so much! I have been frustrated at times with not being able to get a nice solid black background - maybe this will help me!

And that bead is gorgeous!!!!

Brilliant, Kevan. Thanks
I tried to sign up and realised I'd registered ages ago. Now what's my damned password?!

Interesting. One thing I didn't like though is that when I tried to register through Etsy, I got a warning telling me that the app would have access to my Etsy account, shop and customer data... needless to say I didn't proceed that way !

I know how to do this in Photoshop but this program looks like it would be a whole lot quicker and easier. Do you happen to know if this program works inside of Etsy while you're listing an item? Or it is a separate program where you edit the pic then upload to Etsy as usual?

This video by Tim Adam answers my question and shows how the program works:

You can save it to your computer and use it anywhere, like I did here.

That's great! Thanks. This will save me the PITA of touching up all the dust on my backgrounds every time.

I think it's amazing! BTW, I believe just about every Etsy app has to access your shop - otherwise it couldn't import the info or pictures to improve your listings.

I just signed up through the site itself. It had the Etsy option or just a straight signup.
