Im taking pictures with a digital camera to sell clothing online, and Im trying to have a solid whit background behind my clothing. I have just been using the magnetic lasso to go around my images and putting my images on a white background. The look is not very professional, and the edges look rugged.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what I can do besides the magnetic lasso? I remember my teacher telling me to play with the colors and than use the lasso, but Im not sure what colors to play with. I just want to remove my solid background color. This shouldnt be too hard for photoshop, right?

Id really appreciate the help, thanks

If you’re taking the pictures, can you use a white backdrop behind the clothing?
A white bedsheet comes to mind as well as your local photography store for more professional materials.
