THIS TUTORIAL WILL ALSO WORK WITH PS ELEMENTS. IT DOES NOT COVER INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO USE ELEMENTS BUT ELEMENTS HAS THE SAME TOOLS USED IN ITS PROGRAM. If you are familiar with how Elements works then you should be able to follow this tutorial. If you're looking for a step by step for Elements this may not be what you need although I am available to offer support via PM.
The tutorial should be available for instant download once payment has been confirmed. If Etsy does not provide the download instantly, please mail me.
Every step is detailed and has accompanying pictures.
Achieving a solid white background in photography is difficult. Some would rather achieve the best image they can with their camera settings alone, whilst others use a lightbox, lamps, backgrounds...all kinds of materials to enable them to get a good image...others wait for the sunshine and take their items outside...a little inconvenient if it’s a cloudy day, or night time!
I have been using Photoshop for around 10 years now for graphics, drawing and editing pictures and as I don’t have the space for a complicated photography set up, nor the patience to wait for the sun to shine and cart all my creations outdoors, I have been using Photoshop to give me a good, clear image on a solid white background with minimal effort or fuss.
This tutorial will enable you to take pictures indoors with no lighting other than your camera flash, materials needed are minimal. You will turn your pictures from the dark grey pic on the left, to the bright, eye catching image on the right with a perfect white background and automatically correct the colours in your image to their true self, in just a few simple steps!
You only need a camera and a copy of Photoshop installed on your PC. No other special equipment or lighting apparatus is needed.
The tutorial is in .PDF format and has been written by me using Adobe Indesign.

Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order for example), if you contact me directly.
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
I am not currently taking custom orders.
All my ceramics are handmade from top quality stoneware clay and porcelain. They are fired to extremely high temperatures and should be pretty robust. As with any type of pottery, dropping onto hard surfaces is not recommended, as thinner items such as pendants and charms may break...beads should be good and bouncy!
All ceramics, unless otherwise stated should be fine for wearing in the shower/bath or in bad weather as the glaze makes them waterproof.
You can clean your ceramics by using a warm, damp cloth.
All items come from a non smoking household. I do have cats so you may be gifted with an errant hair, lol! (joking!)
