    You can create your own infinity curve using a large sheet of light coloured paper placed between a floor and a wall, the kind of sheets of paper you get on a flipchart. This will work fine for smaller items like toys, dvd/cd's, books, jewellery, perfumes, watches, cameras, etc. Gives a nice clear view with no distracting backgrounds.

    e.g.

    The original post is a brilliant idea, and yours is excellent also, for whoever doesn't have a bath; I've done similarly quite a few times. :)

    Need to clean the bath then, or go to B&Q to buy the parts for a lightbox. It's the classic dilema of fun v cash lol.

    we also sell products online in China. As our experience, the best way to make a photo is under the sunlight. you can try, and I believe that you will find this the best way.

    Does anyone know any good software to get images with like a frame round them quickly in bulk you know like your business logo and |"uk seller" something like:-

    At the moment im faffing around in paint but there must be something easier to get all my images looking similar with the same sort or frame logo and format applied to them

    thanks

    If you have photoshop you can record your actions and just click the play button, and it would repeat your actions on any other pictures.
    For free editing programme try this- pixlr.com/editor/
    It is like an basic photoshop and it is free. I guess it would be easier than paint? Hope this helps...
