Looked around for a thread similar to this, but didn't spot anything. Lots of stuff via Google search, but since we've got a lot of folks here with an eye for photography, I thought I'd give it a go. I recently picked up a lightbox setup at a garage sale, and have just begun the process of playing around with it. I have a 5 mpxl Minolta camera, and I'm taking the pics at 2560 x 1920 (I've reduced these to 640 x 480). I have Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI for general editing. While I realize this setup is far from professional, I'd really like some thoughts from our resident photographers, as I'm nothing but a humble point & click'er. What kinds of things can I do to bring these up to spec? Here's what the initial pictures look like. Now I realize that WHITE BALANCE is probably needed here to get rid of the yellowish hue, but I really don't know much about that. I have settings in my photo editor under Color Balance for things like: Cloudy (6000K) Daylight (5200K) Flash (5500K) Flourescent - Cool (4300K) Flourescent - Daylight (6500K) Flourescent - Full Spectrum (5000K) Flourescent - Standard (4000K) Flourescent - Warm (3000K) Shade (7000K) Tungsten (2800K) I can't determine which of these settings really gives the best representation. Some turn it very blue, others deepen the yellow, and none are giving me the pure bright white I'm looking for in the background. Here's my best shot at it.... (of course, I would crop the junk off the sides when finished). Here's one I worked on for a while that I think turned out well. Any help/feedback is greatly appreciated.
