How to Take Decent Photos of your Handmade Crafts by Endless-Ness How to Take Decent Photos of your Handmade Crafts by Endless-Ness
Here's a beginner's tutorial explaining how to shoot decent photos of your handmade crafts if you don't have any professional training or equipment.

If you don't have Photoshop, there are many other free options. Thanks to ~GatzBcn for suggesting Picmonkey. It's an online photo editing tool that is free and easy to use :) www.picmonkey.com/

I hope you find the tutorial helpful!

You can commission a custom sketchbook like the one in the tutorial through my Etsy shop (link below!)

   Adjusting the white balance on your camera before shooting can also save you time. So you don't have to worry about brightness/contrast or saturation as much. Most if not all cameras give you the ability to adjust your white balance. I love that this is such a clear and concise tutorial.

Thanks for sharing that to the group. You did the right thing. 'Found some photos where I can't see the item clearly because of the kind of background they used when they took the shot.

Do you happen to have a download link? I googled it but none of the fonts were the same as the one you used.

Uhmm it's on Dafont: [link]
It's only for personnal use though. It's one of my favorites and I use it often, but when I need something similar for a commercial work I use Shithead: [link] on Caps lock and compress it a bit so it's not so streched out :)

fantastic, but photoshop costs about as much as a new camera anyways. ;) you can't expect just anyone to have it, so I suggest instead of saying "now its time to open photoshop!" --as if just anyone can afford that crap-- you should probably have said something along the lines of: "Now its time to open whatever photo-editing program you happen to have, if you don't have one there are plenty that you could use on the web." or something to that affect. :I

You're right, but these are Photoshop instruction so no matter how I phrase it, they wouldn't be that useful to someone who's using another program... That's why I only mentionned Photoshop :)
For people who don't have it, I usually suggest Picmonkey, a free online photo editing tool.

Oh I see. Well these are fantastic instructions none the less, as I said. I didn't even know "picmonkey" existed, so its bound to be a great suggestion if one lacks PS. :D
