    Copy and paste sections of the lighted part onto the darkened part. For hard corners copy the color of the light spot and use the spray tool. (I dunno what it's called, don't have photoshop, but I have paintshop) Then smoothen it out but not too much. I've already noticed some blur at the headstock.

    you might want to improve your picture taking skills first... that picture is awful and there are shadows and lights everywhere...

    its hard to fix that image... i kinda did it but i didnt want to lose the perloid texture of the pickguard...

  7. Take the picture again without the light source that's causing the shadows?

    Hey funkfish I did the photoshop editing for you but I don't have a server to upload it to. Can I send it to you through AIM?

    load it as an attachment. you don't need a server. then if you want you can edit the post and add the image, just using the attached image as the url of the pic. Use talkbass as a server.
