Default Help with Picnik.com

Can anyone walk me through... How do I make my background white? Also, when applying a watermark - should it be going thru the actual item, because I feel that takes away from the item!

not sure how to do the white background... but as for the watermark - I recommend doign through at least a part of the item... maybe a corner - that's how I do it.. It's because someone can take your picture and crop your watermark out of it, if you dont' have it going through the item.

hth!

*ps- I'll look into doing the white background for you and see what I can find out!

thats a good tip...i always see watermarks just in the corner (easy to crop) or ALL OVER the image to the point where the image is blurry. its a shame people have to watermark at all.

Oh ok I get it now. So it looks like I'll have to crop my images first otherwise my watermark will be floating in mid-air!

Any luck on the background?? :/

How is this?

Should I let the words cover more of the headband? I don't want the words to take away from the object.

I use Corel products, however most imaging software allow you to use a feature called match background color (or similar) or to extract an object and drop it on to what ever type of background you want. Extracting an object properly is very tedious in my opinions. As for my waterways, I use a mask and overlay it.
