Awesome photos sell your products! There are several photo editing software programs to help you. I used Foto Fuse and really liked the results. It is a free service.
I took a low resolution image from a clipart CD. And below are the Results.
I loved the way that I was able to remove the background completely. It was super easy. It would take me about 30 min to do this in photoshop, but in foto fuse I just highlighted the image and it took away the background completely.
