    Having lots of Minis

    Was thinking of doing a photo shoot of them top down.
    Have to do some jewelry photos any way so figured I would give it a try.

    Figuring they can not be shared due to back yard lawyers, but wanted to see if anyone had tried this method yet?

    Having to remove the background for transparency sounds like a lot of work. Good luck!

    taking photos in a lightbox will make this much easier Mask.

    Get a piece of bright green construction paper and put the mini on top of it. Then pull the image in a graphic editor and choose the magic wand selection tool. Most programs should have it and by tweaking the tolerance you should be able to left-click + Del and the background will be gone. I find a neon color makes it less likely there will be a color conflict for the magic wand (which may be a problem if you have a white background.
    I never claimed to be sane. Besides, it's more fun this way.

    I was going to recommend the green construction paper as well. I have taken a bunch of top down photos with my minis over the years.

    The magic wand works great with paint.net which is a free program, when there is a nice bright green background. Then smooth the edges and the image will look great.
