Default P 80 help

I know someone will know what I am doing wrong here to cause these wavy lines. Is it that I am moving when taking the pic? I take these pics for my website biz, indoors mostly, but outdoors when the weather is good. It does not seem to matter what the setting is, I get these results, and it can be wavy in one pic nad not the next for the same item. I am certainly amateur (can you tell LOL) and need good quality images so that is why I chose this camera.

Default i figured it out!

Well after posting here, I set out to troll the internet to keep trying to find out what I was doing wrong. It is not me or my camera! It is called "moire" and it happens quite a bit when photographing fabrics. There are a couple downloads out there that can take car of it, but also the angle I shoot at can help, so will try that first.

The lines going thru the fabric--those are not supposed to be there!

cgt, i think the problem here (with the other poster not seeing it) is the lines look like they are part of the fabric. but i am familiar with what you are talking about too (the moire)
That being said, what are the photos for? because with a regular person viewing the photos it looks quite normal

I can answer for her (she's my mom) and these pictures are for her online business where she sews and sells these items online. This is why she's really wanting the pictures to be flawless because the people she's selling to know how the fabric should look. When I talked with her this morning she mentioned she had the same moire problem with roofs this weekend when she was taking pictures.

Hope this helps and brings in more suggestions for her.
