PhotoShop too much time and effort? Bling! It lets eBay sellers easily turn digital photos into professional-looking product images.
|Use Bling! It to turn average product images into unique and professional-looking product shots.|
The first thing you want to do with Bling! It, is get rid of your current image background. Unlike some graphics programs, Bling! It actually makes removing a background a very easy process. As soon as you load the application, it finds and outlines the image edges. In what looks and feels like a "paint-by-number" screen, you use the background removal tool to click the pre-defined highlighted spaces.
|Upload your photos and banish bad backgrounds.|
Once you have the background removed, you can replace it with a more professionally designed one, or simply leave it solid white if you prefer. When working with backgrounds you can load an existing image as a background from the Bling! It library or import your own design.
|Enhance the image with highlights, logos, or different backgrounds.|
The best thing about Bling! It is that is takes the functions sellers would use in enhancing their product photos and makes them easy to use and apply within the program. You don't have to be a graphic artist whiz to use the application or spend hours figuring out the tools and how they work. Bling! It version 1.0.2 can be downloaded from the official Web site as a free limited 15-day trial, or you can purchase the software for $49.99. The Web site also features several tutorial and tip pages to help eBay sellers get started on blinging-out their product shots and auction images.
