I m going to sell this sofa, its the same sofa but i got a cover thats black as well but its really nasty looking. And i have tried to post process it so it look appeal, plus i frogot to remove the socks when shooting the sofa (do'h) and i was wondering if anyone can help me out. I have linked so you can give it a go if your in the mood, its 16-bit TIF file. I have tried but didnt really manage to get that black sofa look appealing to the eyes, feel free to blur out the background a crop is more then welcome, this is the orignal shot!

i hosted the images at megaupload they allow a max of 500mg so i it worked, TIF files are about 16mb each

to donwloand from megauplaod. Follwo the link and type in the code next to the megauplaod banner in the text field than continune..

Quick enteries are much apreciated because i just want to get rid of this sofa :)

I can never get anything off megaupload but is sprucing up you sofa in post processing ethical?

How are you selling it anyway, wouldn't the person come and take a look at it? I don't think you are mailing it are you? :D

Might call it scam but its not, i just want it to stand out amongs other sofas that area out there, of course the costumer has to come over here to take a look at it in person before selling i m defently not mailing it, i just want to cause the eye to go my way and thus causing some intrest

i dont think its unethical what so ever

I think all advertising is unethical, goes with the territory. This is no worse.

No. Advertising wasn't involved in my decision to buy my D80.

Nah I wasn't accusing you of scamming anybody, I just feel that putting up an edited image can be a bit misleading but since you say that it's only to get your sale noticed I guess that doesn't matter then. It's up to you anyway.

I tried a few proxies to bypass the country limitations set by Megaupload and they all don't work. I am never downloading that stupid toolbar so I guess I can't really help with this one.

I did this really quickly. I don't know if this is what you are looking for, but I think it makes it a little easier to see what you are looking to sell. I lightened the image and extracted it to a neutral background. How's that?

Thats a great idea, didnt think of removing the background!! Really didnt!

good idea, what i have done so far is that i gave the backgroung a hard core blur tus making the softa pop out! But what i want to is to get rid of those nasty folds and that stain that is in the middle of tha back! the colours looks to washed out (that the way the sofa is)


thanks alot java!! your tip helped me alot!
