I put a few more ice cream scoops on Etsy!

I put a few more ice cream scoops on Etsy. Chocolate and vanilla! Go shop!

I need to shoot some good photos of yarn, because we are going to have a limited pre-order – maybe 20 to start – of custom cupcake coffee cup cozies on Etsy. Stay tuned!

I still haven’t figured out my color profile issues when I upload pics to Etsy. They all look really dark and gross and depressing to me!! Someone suggested editing photos in Picnik, but I just have this hope that I can resolve the color issues in Photoshop! Anyone have Photoshop, a MacBook, and some answers? πŸ˜› Uploading to Flickr usually doesn’t affect anything. Just pesky Etsy! And I feel like that’s where you want your product-related photos to look best!

    I adjust it using the brightness setting under image > adjustments. I works for me!

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      I do that, too, and I often have to adjust the colors as well, even though I custom white balance my camera. It seems weird though to have to over-photoshop and blow out the image in order to guess if it might look okay once uploaded to Etsy!

    I adore that t-shirt! Also, I think I’ve noticed a similar problem with my Etsy photos, but I don’t have anything to recommend in particular to help other than just trying to boost the brightness and lowering the contrast slightly! Sorry!

      Thanks! I bought the tshirt in a little shop in Hong Kong. This little old lady was tending it, and she kept trying to pet me. I was scared. HAhahah.

    where do you buy such colourful yarns?

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      I buy yarn from all over! The chain stores like Michael’s and Jo-Anne Fabrics, and also my local yarnshop, ImagiKnit, and also online at places like http://www.PurlSoho.com and http://www.kyarns.com.

    Do you use save for web when saving your pics in Photoshop? If so, I might know the solution. I used to have this problem too, although it wasn’t just with Etsy, it was with anything I used save for web on. Could be worth trying, I guess πŸ™‚

    This is what I did: Go to the edit menu > color settings. And in the first drop down that says settings: Choose monitor color and save.

    Hi ^^
    I’m following your blog for a while now and I would like to say hello etc ^^
    But about the photos..Well.. I use PhotoFiltre instead of Photoshop, ’cause I can’t work with Photoshop. But PhotoFiltre is an easy an good program, such like Photoshop but easier. You can download it for free on Google.

    Hmmm, I use Picasa so I’m not much help, sorry! By the way, I just love this picture! Awesome hair day in this pic!

    Ahh, I didn’t get there in time for a vanilla one. At least I managed to get a mint chip one last week!

    Will you be bringing back cheeseburger cup cozies? I really really want one of those!

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      Hi hi!
      The burger cozies didn’t do well at all in person at a craft fair, so I thought maybe nobody loved them very much :P. But if there is interest, we will do some more! πŸ˜‰

    YES! I cant wait for the pre-order cupcake cozies!!! I lost out on one the last time πŸ™ I’ll be ready for it now! Thank you!!!!

  9. YAY! I got my strawberry scoop today in the mail WOOHOOO! I wore it to work the 2nd half of the day and everyone went nuts! I cant wait to post pics! Thank you for making such awesome things! OX

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      FUN!!!!!! I can’t wait to see pics!!!!!
      I wore mine out and went to a dive bar and all the girls wanted my biz card!

  10. JP says:

    Will you be making any more mint scoops?? I’m never fast enough to get them, could we even possibly do a custom order for one?

    1. Twinkie Chan says:

      Hi! We will be doing more, but I can’t really take any custom orders until February!

  11. Tasha says:

    Usually on my photos I like to pump up the contrast and a thing called vibrancy, its on photoshop cs4 and it makes the color, well, more vibrant.
    Dunno if that’ll help, hope it does!
