    I need to show this led finger light with a white background. But the light needs to be on and show a little color on that white background. If I just use a brush and white out some area around the light hitting the table then it does not look very good. I want to make a great looking photo to put on the front of this website. I would appreciate any help at all. There is a photo now on the front of this website www.lducompany.com of the finger light but they want me to change it to have a white back ground but show the color light. Thank you.

    I suspect that the photograph you were given had the light color added after the actual photo was taken and isn't something you can fix with The FAC. Depending on what the original photo looks like will dictate what must be done by a photo/image editor to change it in prepartion of using it .

    Hello laker. I feel your pain. I do believe it would be much easier to take the origional thumbnail as seen on http://www.liangdianup.com/led_1.htm which already has the white background, and then add in some colorful light into the scene w/ Ps (photoshop) or some other image editor. This is the best way to do it IMHO.

    It would be best to get the image w/ it's origional resolution (size) to work with if you can too. If you can get this, PM me and I'll see what I can do for you.

    You could take the picture with the lights off and put the picture with the lights on in a new layer and position it over the other one. Then change the opacity of the lights on picture until you get the desired effect.

    Here's one that's a bit lighter on the colors.

    Thanks to laziness... Thought I'd try the overlay and reduce the opacity as trying to paint it in would have been very time consuming and tedious, at least for me, and it wouldn't turn out very well...:image10-2:
