Add an item on a busy background

So, do you love the concept of an online closet and yet you are skeptical of how difficult it is to add all of your clothes? Well, it’s not as hard as you think. We showed you in our last “How-to” post that if you follow certain guidelines adding an item is a piece of cake. Yet we know that not all items are easy to photograph and some clothes show better hanging. You’re right, they do. So we picked out a Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress with a busy print and hung it up on the busiest and *white* background we could think of. It took us less than 2 minutes to follow the three steps. . . Just watch!

In this case the automagic circle tool won’t help you that much, so move over to our next fabulous little helper – the crop tool. You most likely are used to use the crop tool by selecting the four points that will create surround the item. That works too. . . but what’s even better is to circle with your finger around the key item making sure you never lift your hand from the screen. Fair enough? Now hit, apply!


Voila! Most of the clutter is gone. Move over to the eraser and start removing the rest of the background. You can adjust the size of the eraser to your liking. . . making it larger or smaller by pinching the screen.


Now we’re almost done! But since we are perfectionists, we’d like to remove the hanger bit too. The best way to do this is to use the crop tool and extract the item completely. Now, hit save! What a nice feeling! Our DVF wrap for the beach is stored in our online wardrobe! Cute, no?
