Remove shadow from product image

Hi all,

I have a problem with the photo I have attached, my photoshop skills aren't to fancy and have no clue what is an easy way to remove the shadow on the left side.

I tried the clone stamp tool but that is costing me a lot of time and doing 300 pictures with it is going to take me ages. :P

I hope you guys can help me out in finding an easy solution to eliminate the shadow.

Thanks in advance!

Use the pen tool to make a selection around the shadow. Sample the white around the shadow and fill your selection with it.

Can you give a more detailed explanation? If I make a selection with the pen tool and try to fill it with the paint bucket it doesn't fill thw hite in smooth but jagged. :S

Re: Remove shadow from product image

Excuse me for my noobishness. If i follow the tutorial on ehow. I get stuck on step 4:

Adjust the levels of brightness and contrast to match the surrounding background color.

Whatever I do with brightness and contrast or color the shadow is not getting white :S
