    I agree with making the background pure white. You can make the picture straight if you have CS4 and use the content-aware-scaling feature. It will take some time to get right but it is possible. You will have to use a mask to protect parts of the image when you are scaling as well.

    Thank you for taking the time explaining that. I am familiar with most of your method... except desating the high pass layer, and your lip method. I will have to try that. Muchos gracias.

    I didn't think about it much but the background was much darker out of the camera. I brought it up to about (242,242,242). I might try it and see how it looks as a clean white, but I think it might take away from punch of the strip soft box reflection if it is the same tone. Thanks for your comment.
