Alot of Pictures are taken in front of a green screen programs and kits and you can completely remove the background from the image. Its a Great way to us the image on a professional site. But if your trying to sell on places like ebay it will make your item harder to sell.

Just out of Curiosity What kind of Camera Do you use?

I use a Nikon D40x with a SB600 Flash Unit, Tripod and a nikkor 200mm VR lens

Are you looking for an image like this

I would suggest Chromakey software and backdrops or something similar. I think corel has a program like this for $200. If your doing something small you wont need a very big backdrop kit. You can find products like this at

I'm not sure exactly how its done but the top photographers use a box with a camera sticking in through a hole.

They control exactly how much light and shadow is on the item.

The backing is completely white. I think you can even angle the lens to leave no shadow.
There may be software that can create this now.

If you are wanting to get a white background, software like Corel will do it, but it takes some work. Adobe has a much better application.

I use photo shop to erase most of the image I don't want, then finish the erasing in Corel draw on close up. Like I said, takes some work, but you can get a white back ground and a professional looking shot.
