I used Photoshop, but I only did a few things:
1. Lighten the overall image
2. Remove the background with magic wand
3. Add a bit of contrast (after I have removed the background)
I think most photo editing softwares would be able to do what I did on photoshop.
The lightbox did most of the work. I used a regular Daylight lightbulb. If you need more light, this site gives you quite a bit of information on what bulb to buy: TableTop Studio - Lighting Myths
Oh... and check out your camera functions. Sometimes, you can increase the exposure (allowing more light into the camera) to get a brighter pics. And that will save you heaps of editing time.
I did one batch of photos without a lightbox, and spent the whole afternoon editing.
I gave up, took out my lightbox and took them again. And this time I spent only 1-2 hours editing nearly 100 photos.
All the best! I hope the information helps. Just message me if you need more help with this.
