No chance! I need them for myself. Which is why I thought of taking a picture of them.:-)

Well done, Ferny

Your cough drops appear to be floating in mid air...

Hope you are back to 100% soon.

I kept wondering what Strepsils were before I looked at the photo, then Bingo as I looked at the photo. We used them a lot in Jamaica during the flu season.

Nice floating effect.

You could do the advertising photography for the company that makes them.

Thanks. I wanted it to have a plain white background and base. The best way to achieve this (I think) would be with a light box. But I don't have one. All I have is white photo paper, which isn't true white. So it required a slight amount of editing.
Now I can see the original and my edit properly (no coat needed...) I don't know which I prefer. I'm leaning towards the unedited one. I overdid the red in trying to get it closer to the colour of the Stepsils. It is closer, but overpowering. Isn't that always the way after you post one? Still, at least I learned some new technique in psp8. I think I might hold back submitting my entries until the evening.





Yeah, like that will happen.
:lol:

Light box: one piece of glass propped up with whatever comes to hand such as four stacks of unread paperbacks + one piece of white paper on top of the glass + one small lamp beneath the glass. Thoselittle fluorescent lights that can be attached beneath wall cabinets in kitchens work well. If you can scrounge up a piece of translucent white Plexiglas, that's even better than glass and paper.

ferny, i think u did a fantastic job with the editted one, the bright white contrast really did bring out the red in thestrepsils, I see no fault in that. The original does look a bit dull and greyed out. I've got some orange strepsils in my pocket now, and my mouth is watering for those red chaps u got there !!
