This might soound like an odd request but I want a background of a white room. Not just plain white, but should have things showing that it is a room, with corners, rather than just a plain white picture. I want it to look as an interrogation room. If anyone has any ideas for other backgrounds I can use, post em.

So... a big room with white walls?

Go out and buy some white fabric and hang it in three spots so you have a "room" set.

One thing I notice alot that shows it's a room is the presence of light fixtures in the ceiling. I have no idea how you'd do that, though. confused

Subtle, pooky... Took me a minute to see that it was anything but a white image.

I would try taking a picture of a room, and then increase the brightness 100%, but mask around the corners and lights to keep them preserved.

Well I got a red room with a lot of shadows off google, then unsaturated it, turned the brightness up a bit, then with levels got rid of a few shadows.
I made a new layer, which I gaussian blured, and screened on top. Now you coul still see the shadows so I masked around the edges of the room, copied and pasted it onto a new layer, made the other layers a lot whiter, and then put the corners back and adjusted them a bit to make it the same color. But the picture was too small so I made a new file, the right size, put the room pic in the middle, then used the cloning tool to make it bigger!


Phew! smile
