Part of my product looks like it is being eaten by the background?
background remove missingMake sure you highlighted the entire object and shadows. The "check for errors" image on the edit page can help identify areas which need highlighting.
I used a white surface, but my results were not very good?
background bad resultsTypical Cause: The surface was not flat enough - or - the object has very complex shadows - or - your highlight cut into the object a bit.
Possible Fixes: Flatten the white surface - or - try highlighting the shadows along with the object - or - try re-highlighting the photo.
Does the entire surface of the background have to be white, or only the parts surrounding the object?
background highlightYes, only the surface directly around the product needs be white, however you may find it easier to just make sure the entire background surface is white.
Can I change the background color?
change background color black whiteNot yet, but it's something we want to offer in the future.
Currently FotoFuze will turn a messy white background into a clean white background and turn a messy black background into a clean black background.

import active listing etsyIf when you visit the homepage and the listing hasn't been imported yet, you can click on the "Import Etsy Listings" button on the homepage. This will let you manually call the import process for your account. Sometimes it can take up to 10 minutes for Etsy to refresh their cache, but if it takes longer than that let us know.

If you'd like a deleted photo back, click on "Show Advanced" and then click on "Import All Photos". This will re-import all the photos on your listing.
