In Topic: Product photo tips?

02 April 2008 - 03:24 PM

If your products have lines that are straight and/or curved, you can use the Photoshop Pen tool to make a Path selection. Now, it does not matter what your background is because you can extract the product from the background.

When I was shooting candles, I used 2 compact lights and shot them with my digital camera. Once I downloaded all of the images, I was able to extract each of the candles in about 15 seconds to create a great looking image with a perfectly white background that blends in perfectly with the rest of the page. The sides were selected with straight lines, while the top and bottom were selected using a tangent line.

You can learn the specifics about the pen tool by Googling photohop pen tool.

You can see an example of how my product blends in with the rest of the page at

In Topic: How can I make search only show products with all words

I added this line as a hidden field to skins/basic/customer/side_boxes/search.tpl

<form action="{$index_script}" name="search_form" method="get">
<input type="hidden" name="{$target_name}" value="products" />
<input type="hidden" name="{$mode_name}" value="search" />
<input type="hidden" name="subcats" value="Y" />
<input type="hidden" name="type" value="extended" />
<input type="hidden" name="avail" value="Y" />
<input type="hidden" name="pshort" value="Y" />
<input type="hidden" name="pfull" value="Y" />
<input type="hidden" name="pname" value="Y" />
<input type="hidden" name="pkeywords" value="Y" />
[COLOR="Red"]<input type="hidden" name="match" value="all" />[/COLOR]

However, this did not change the behavior of the search. The searches continue to act as if 'any of these words' is being used instead of 'all of these words'.

I am using V1.3.5 SP2. Any ideas on why this is not working?

It appears that they delete the credit card info when the status changes to Completed, Backordered or Cancelled in V1.3.5 SP2.

Did you put this in the existing category-description style in styles.css, or did you create a new category-description style in styles_ie.css?

I am unable to replicate the problem using IE 7.0.5730.11. I added, deleted, added more - it always came out correctly.
