Imaging-software company Vertus announced software Tuesday to more easily add pizazz to photos of items you might want to look better for an online sale.

Bling It helps users substitute a bland background from an original photo with something more flashy. It also can be used to sharpen images, add drop shadows, logos, and text, and reduce image size for Web site publication. The company is aiming the software at individuals who do a lot of selling on online auction sites or at small businesses that want to gussy up product photos.

The software costs about $50. It's available for Windows XP or Vista, and a Mac OS X version is due "shortly," the company said.
