Having great photos is key in online selling. Most sellers will use natural light with a white background or a light box then process the photos in a photo editing software. I discovered FotoFuze when I was browsing through the Etsy Apps section and decided to give it a try. I have some photos I used with my homemade lightbox that I wanted to try editing them with this software.
Edited Photo: Even better with FotoFuze
You can sign up with FotoFuze using your Etsy account or through your email. A video will pop-up and I suggest you watch it so you can see the tips on how to use the system.
I tried FotoFuze with one of my processed photo to see how it performed. I must say I was pretty amazed at how easy FotoFuze was to use and I liked the results. You just need to use this highlighting tool and highlight the main object as well as the shadow then you can click on the Finish button and you’re done.
Highlight the Main Object and the Shadow
You need to upload the photos into the site. You don’t have to wait too long however if you want to upload really fast you can resize the photo to a smaller resolution before uploading them.

Overall, I would say that FotoFuze is a great and easy to use tool. It’s easy to sign up and it’s free. You can donate to the developers through the site via Jungl. Half of your donation goes to the charity of your choice. I highly recommend FotoFuze.
Wrapping gifts in fabric is called Furoshiki. This Japanese style of gift wrapping encourages recycling and reuse. You can just use any cloth that you have to wrap a present and its looks pretty as well.

This tutorial from Poppytalk is so cool. You can make your own polymer gift tags. I can just imagine making the tags for a special occasion like a wedding where you can make a small plate with the couple’s wedding details and turn it into a ring holder.
