Hey,

Here is an article on GIMP, a free program you can download that does (as far as I can tell) everything that photoshop does. The other alternative is to drape a sheet or a large piece of white paper behind your MOC when you photograph it.

I did a tutorial a while back for the Eurobricks Reviewers' Academy on how to do this, and how to take it that step further, and add a CGI background. It covers Photoshop, Jasc and Gimp, although the main program described is Paint.net, which is free, but - in my opinion - is better equipped than Gimp. Unfortunately the Academy is a private forum, although you can gain entry just by requesting it, no questions asked. 8) However, for easy reference when needed, I also posted a similar topic at the same time publically, but locked - you can read it here. It should explain everything - just ask if there's a problem. As Bruce said, a white sheet makes editing much easier - or not even necessary!

Not by a long shot, although it does the job just fine, only much slower :wink:

I might be able to help you edit. Send me a PM if you still need someone to edit them.

Otherwise, you might try buying a few sheets of white or colored construction paper or foam padded posterboard to create a white or colored background.
