Unhappy Digital Backgrounds/Backdrops

Hello All,

I came across this website for Photography Backgrounds I like what I saw but they are not Digital ones I am interested to know if there are Digital Versions of their Photography Backgrounds/Scenic Backdrops. I've googled about but cannot find any as good as that.


http://www.coleandcompany.com/Scenic.htm

If anyone knows of anything software, website that sells the Digital versions I would be happy to know.

Many thanks in advance

helen

Re: Digital Backgrounds/Backdrops

Hi Helen,

There is a great software product that I use to create thousands of digital backgrounds any size I need them at full resolution. Its called "Background Designer" by DigitalAnarchy.Com They are the company that popularized the cutout software to make photographic cutouts of models against a green screen background...after a time someone thought to make good looking interactive digital backgrounds too. Right now this Background Designer is used as a plugin for my Photoshop CS4 and CS5 Retouching Software.

There are hundreds of gorgeous backgrounds as a base and you can easily re-colorize them to match your image, interactively modify them in many ways, add in 3D folds, light glints, spotlight looks, shadows and window lights etc. The software is easy to use and produces hundreds of combinations that you are in total control of...from the Classic Masters Looks on Canvas to Modern looking backgrounds.

Here are a couple of links:

A Gallery: http://digitalanarchy.com/backdrop/gallery.html
Video Tutorial Page: http://digitalanarchy.com/backdrop/tutes.html

Once I make one of these backgrounds for an 11x14 or 16x20 I take the full resolution image and save it into a library of backgrounds that im keeping for re-use. There are some I like and I reuse them a lot.

Hope this might meet your need. This software is about 1/2 the price of just one of cloth background you might buy for your studio...yet produces hundreds of relevant looks.

Cheers:

Ray12

Marilyn Sholin at Digital Magazine told me there is no way I would find what I am looking for I knew I've got to try until I get an answer.

Thanks a million
