Hi everyone! I'm happy to share with you an easy tutorial for making your product photographs beautiful! I use this for all my jewelry in my etsy shop.

First take a photo that obviously needs some retouching. I used my nikon with a lightbox set up for this photo, but it still could use a little work.


Step 1: Create a new layer fill for Brightness/Contrast.



Step 2: Boost the brightness up until your photo is more vivid. Don't worry about getting it completely white yet.



Step 3: Choose a dodge brush and select midtones.




Step 4: Start brushing the background of your photo. The gray background soon becomes a lighter white.




Step 5: Now select your burn brush to darken your product. For this necklace, dodge creates a deeper color.



Here is your finished product!



I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial! And I hope your product photos become beautiful and amazing!
