Help Pages: Photo Uploading Tips [ category topics ]
I uploaded my photos and now they look funny... what's up?
You may have uploaded photos that do not like the default settings. Delete the photos you are unhappy with and try again. This time, upload the images with NO background remover – uncheck the box that says "Remove Background" and then upload.
I uploaded my photos and left the backgrounds in, but now I want them out... what do I do?
Go into the category of the closet where your photo is, and double click on it. When the pop-up box comes up, one of the tabs is IMAGE TOOLS. Use the background remover there and / or the cropping tool.
My whites are coming out weird. Why?
White images are tough, because a) the background of the site is white and b) because if you use the background remover on it, it may have removed some of the detailing on the item like buttons and seams. You decide which way you prefer the image, with no background or with some in.
My clothes are not taking the best shape. What do I do?
The best thing to do is to follow these Photo Guidelines and Tips. Here you learn how to best position your clothes, what backgrounds to use, etc.
How does the background remover work? It looks scary and wonderful!
The background remover, AKA Sheldon's Magical Background Remover, works with contrast technology. The magical remover captures a piece of a corner of the photo, looks at what color is there, and takes away everything in a similar hue. Cool, huh?
I want to do more editing to my image - can I?
Yes, you can. Upload the image with out using the background remover. Just upload it plain and simple. Then, save it in the category of your choice, and name it, etc. Go into the My Closet section and find the item and double click on it. You will see a tab in the pop-up box that says "Image Tools". There you have a choice to crop out the background or use the background remover with more control, or both.
More advanced editing tools will be coming soon. For the time being you may want to use Flickr, Picnik, Photoshop or a graphics program outside of Closet Couture and then import the image into your closet exactly as you like it.)
