Putting too much effort into editing pictures is a waste of time. As long as you can see the details of an item clearly, you'll be just fine.

That being said, solid background would be better. Just work on your lighting setup and background, as the time saving going forward will be worth the upfront cost.

Do you have to edit your photos to get the color accurate?

With a decent set of lights/flashes, you should be golden once you've set custom white balance and learn how to get proper exposure. I do not edit my photos at all.

My pictures aren't perfect, but they're better than 99% of the rest of EBay. I have two more lights to add once I get home from our road trip. Then I should be closer to perfection. I'm also planning to repaint the wall behind my studio setup.

I use Adobe Lightroom and it's awesome.

 

Generally about 20-30% of my work time at home is spent editing photos, but I'm somewhat of a perfectionist. I was having issues with pics being too green so I would increase red levels and that seems to solve it. I believe a better camera and more/better lights would seal the deal, but that Howard Yount SC photo had 0 color adjustment, just shadows/exposure/contrast/highlight reduction. 

 

Thanks for the kind words guys, I have something like 150+ suits alone to sell this Fall/Winter so I'm trying to lock down a setup/routine and crank em out.

Sent some ties to a dude in Ecuador first class (so no delivery confirmation) over a month ago, he still hasn't gotten them.  I'm SOL, right?

Incidentally, on a pair of women's J. Press trousers. Is it weird that the label is all in Chinese?
It is in Japanese actually, looks like it was made for the Japanese market, just made in China.
I think it reads: cotton, polyester, polyurethane

Thanks for the reassurance gents.

1. Might want to edit your post and remove the guy's name. As of now, it will be Google-able and I don't know if he'd appreciate that.

 

2. What are you seeing that is making you concerned? I looked it over briefly and nothing stood out to me as being fishy.

Thanks! I'm trying to list these RIGHT NOW, and decided to wait 'til I could get more info on the tags.

Is it weird that there's not an English language size/content tag on a pair of J. Press pants? These don't seem like a thing that would get counterfeited (and they look really well made), but it's odd that they're tiny (maybe women's size?) and not much English info. Any thoughts from the community?

Edit: I overlooked Versace Guy's thought that these were made for the Japanese market. I'm just not up to date on whether the brand makes women's clothes, or maybe these are just built for smaller people ...

I have a J Press women's coat sized in cm, with Japanese tags. If that helps allay any worries.

Before / after. Using lightroom wand to up exposure on the background. I don't actually remember doing anything to the body of the pic apart from bring the blue out to match the color in person.

I actually think the unedited picture looks a lot better. Way more natural. White backgrounds aren't the be all end all in photography. (unless you're brianpore and you can do it perfectly and seemingly effortlessly.)

+1 org photo looks better IMO and would just cut the background out as the color of the jacket is def off in the edited one

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._Press

 

In 1974, the Press family sold the rights to license J. Press for the Japanese market, making it the first American brand to be licensed in Japan. In 1986, J. Press was acquired by the Japanese apparel company Onward Kashiyama, who had previously been his licensee for 14 years. Japanese licensed distribution is roughly six times larger than the American-made J. Press.
