Photography/change background

Hello, aob,

First, please know that I am a woman.

I am not sure such a thing exists. I use Paint Shop Pro. (Photoshop is expensive and does a lot more that you may not need,) If you put a plain colored background behind your model, it is fairly easy in PSP to make the background transparent and then put the image of your model over the background you select, and paste it there. PSP is not expensive. I think I normally pay around $60 for it. You can get old versions of PSP for free. I found many different versions on this web site: . HOWEVER, you have to be very careful of many of these sites, because sometimes they put viruses in free or cheap software. I don't know anything about this site. So I don't recommend you get the software there without a thorough investigation to see if they can be trusted. Use their URL as a search term, and see if you can turn up any complaints about their software having viruses. Yes, on the site it says it's free of viruses, but check an outside source. So please do not take my word for it. Check it out carefully first.

Please remember always, you get what you pay for. In the software business, the price of being careless is a virus on your machine.

I hope this helps.

I can answer questions about the artistic aspects of photography, and tricks for shooting landscape, scenic, macro, and animal photography. I am familiar with Pentax SLR cameras, both film and digital. I have also done work in urban photography and creative photography, and I am familiar with creative uses of filters and lenses. I am familiar with composition and color theory, and know how to make use of light. I can answer questions about things like lightning photography and moon photography. I spend time studying the techniques of the well known photographers. I work exclusively in color. Although I travel anywhere and everywhere in pursuit of landscape and scenic photography, my main area of expertise is the American southwest, and I am familiar with many scenic areas. I also have familiarity with the plants of the Sonoran Desert, having studied not only their appearance but also their uses, including ethnobotany. See my educational credentials for other art that I do.


I have spent the last ten years as a semi-professional photographer, selling my work on the internet, and having won international honors. The gallery of my most recent work, where I usually post frequently is I will take questions about how I did various photographs.

The first prize I won for my art was when I was in third grade. I have a bachelor's degree in art from Ohio Dominican University, where I learned mainly ceramics and glaze calculation. I have also done various kinds of fiber arts. In addition, I do digital landscapes, abstracts, and fractal art.
