Please help with glare

I started making glass marble magnets to sell on eBay. I have taken hundreds of pictures inside, outside and everywhere I can possibly think of but I am still getting this awful glare. I have Jasc Paint Shop Photo Album 5 if that helps. When I edit they turn out looking fake.
I tried to attach the photo but the file is to large.

Thanks,
Shannon

Hi Shannon. Does the photo album have the resize function which is in the psp programs? I usually resize in psp as I am so used to that programs ability. Sure would be nice to see your work and what the problem is. I would not be able to help with the main problem but there sure are people here who can. If you would like to e-mail the image to me I can resize it for you. I CAN do that LOL..Neb

Glare

Well if the objects are small then I would suggest that you spend more time on taking the original photo. Make a home photo stand. A table with some nice velvet cloth and diffuse lighting on each side. That would start you off with a nice photograph that would need no retouching.

I have psp photo album 5 and looked to find the resize function and found it . Here is how is works.

Note: Resizing photos may reduce the sharpness of a photo (especially when you decrease the size), so it is a good idea to keep a backup copy of the original photo by using Save As to save the new image.

To resize a photo:

Open the folder containing the photos you want to resize. For information about locating photos, refer to Finding Photos.

Double-click the photo to open it in the Enhance tab.

On the Enhance tab, choose Image > Resize to open the

Image Resize dialog.

The Image function is on top , clcik it and you will find resize toward the bottom. I like to do it by percent.

ShannonH, by any means do you have another maybe a little more over exposed, I think that a white backdrop with drop shadow on the marbles should do the trick, however your current pic is a hard one, as a couple of the marbles are blended to the background

Just looking at your pics, maybe get yourself piece of either bright blue or green material, so the background separates more easily. The first pic looks pretty acceptable to me, but a bright diverse background would enable much more manipulation. The first pic, which actually looks like marbles, does in fact blend a bit with some of the marbles so makes for harder selection
