I have NO pure white spaces in the house, can you believe it, for photo taking where the light might be decent.
I keep seeing blog photos of knitting projects with "pure white" behind the project.
Is that a specific photo program "option" or just that you all are lucky to have a white counter or windowsill to work on? I use Picasa, but don't seem to see any way to end up with a white background.
And here is a "thing" -- a garlic shaped salt shaker. Sigh. I just have too many "things." (but note the not-what-I-want background)
