Equalize tip

I think that , most of us have or had refusals because of poor background removal.

An easy way to check it out is to use equalize option in Photoshop. After you removed your background and turned it to white make a copy of your layer and click

Image >Adjustments > Equalize.

If you see dots or stains on white partition of the image then undo equalize option and clean these areas with a white brush.

Thank you very much for reading

Thank you very much for your sharing. Well, I set the tolerance between 5-20 and choose the white areas. When done click del and emty the areas I selected. Then you can refine the edges with select > modify and always use a soft brush with a small diamater to correct the edges ....

Good tip! I usually use a background layer with a strong color like red! #FF0000. When unhidden the layer you can see all the left overs you just didn't clean! Cheers ;)

Thank you for the tip. In PhotoShop Elements 8 adjustments is found under filter. I'm definitely going try this.

Thank you for sharing that, but can you please provide advice on how to remove the initial background? For example, your "dentist tools" picture looks like it must have been very difficult to remove the background. I shoot in a light box with a white cloth background, and when I shoot close ups, you can see the netting of the fabric. When I try to remove that, it often times picks up part of the object being photographed and does not cleanly remove the background. Is there advice you can give that will product stunning images like the "dentist tools" pic? I would really appreciate it.

Thanks again!

Nice tip Serdar.
Also you can go to layers>adjustments layers>levels>and bring the left slider to the right end. Back to background layer and clean it with burn tool opacity 3-4% next to subject 100% everywhere else. When finish go back to adjustment layer a bring slider to left and Magic!! you have a clean image
