I decided to spare some time and touch up my jewelry photos a bit. I played around with Photoshop’s healing brush, levels and color replacement tool, and the results were pretty cool!
I used the levels histogram to lighten up the background and make it white.
Then I used the color replacement tool to remove any lighting problems – bluish background, orange lighting etc.
And then the color replacement tool to remove small defects in the image – for example, if I took a picture of a pair of earrings hung on a string, I could remove the string from the image and have the earrings hang in mid air …
Here are some examples of the “before” and “after” images. What do you think?
