This is a photo of our band called,Unity.Is there a way to change the background and crop it to make it look more professional?

Yes, there is!There's alot of talented people here. Could you give us a bit of an idea of what you're looking for to replace the background or is itan 'anything goes' project for the people who'd like to take it on?

Well, here's my try. The problem is, we don't know what you define professional as. We don't nkow the type of music you do or the audience you performfor. It would probably be easier to reshoot because without a lot of work, you still are going to have sand on your shoes and the wrong lighting for the background you are being placed on. This is just an idea, you probably can't use this because I just did a google search in images for "unity" and this was one of the images, so it's not mine to be giving permission for you to use. Anyway, here it is...

Wow,that is fantastic.I only wish I could do that,that way I could print one out.

Thanks, I didn't mean to sound so harsh in my first post. You can sure save this one to your hard drive and print it out, I don't know how good it would turn out at this resolution. I also don't know the legalities of it, but I don't think you could use it for promotion, but that's up to you.;)Glad you like it. It's not hard to do, I have the most basic Photoshop elements program and just learned by playing around, there is still a lot I don't know how to do!
