    Another tip for you; use a photo/image software that allows you to crop the photo. I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager, basically because it's on my laptop. Once the photo is downloaded, use the crop feature to remove unwanted items from the background. Compare the second photo with your original; I picked up your laundry for you.

    best alternative to natural lighting, eliminating the problems associated with incandecent and flurescent lighting. My wife has several that she uses for her needle craft work and she loves it. Here's a link: OttLite
