I'm looking for a manual, guide or tutorial to make new product images. For example, the images provided in the demo like shirt, sneakers, etc doesn't included all images. I need create my own images for a new kind of shirts. As i see it, probably i should split one simple image in three layers. One layer with low opacity (for example 50%) to create the shadow, other plain image to colorize them.. and the rest i don't know...
Someone knows what's the correct steps?
It's also important to change white to alpha (via channels in Photoshop I believe, or with the color to alpha function in GIMP (which is what I use)) as the "shadow layer" as we call it needs to be mostly transparent. In case of the image for our demo products, we added some white highlights back in with a white brush (though we did get most of the image online and did not actually create them).
Thanks a lot Johnny. The information provided was very userfull :)
