Get white background on product photos?


Question

I have photos of a product and I would like to create a white background behind it. See it here:

product shot

I have tried playing with levels and the brightness but that also messes up the product itself. How do i do this?

Accepted Answer

For what it's worth, here's my attempt. It essentially takes the same approach as Scott's answer, so credit should go to him, but with a different approach to the top roll-off.

I noticed there was a slight green colour cast which I removed in a pretty quick and dirty way too (though not very well).

Example

The reason this has been so easy to do is that you have otherwise done everything right - it's photographed with a light backlit background (normally you don't want, but in this case you do) so it can easily be isolated just with curves.

You can get most of the way there with a simple Curves adjustment

I would mask the product so it's isolated and tweak the actual product further if needed.
