you can do that same thing for sure. But for me..being kind of a novice with photoshop the $35 was worth the head ache of trying to figure out the layers and masking.

Just take photos of the t-shirts like I just did with some new shirts at posterpop.com. Yes it takes time but you can then feel the pride of not only showing your designs as actual photographs, but you can archive photos of your designs. You can even mock up a missing design or 2... like you would in the software mentioned above..

All you need to do is get a nice white 30 x 36 piece of mat board and draw a center line and lightly outline the key corners of a t-Shirt in Pencil, so you can replicate placement. I have a Bogan Tripod where the center column can extend horizontally over the shirt , to that you can suspend the camera over the center of the shirt to take lots of consistent photos...

I do have 2 florescent 5000k lights, and a cable release to make it soo much easier... I just did 50 shirts all in various specific colors last Saturday in 3-4 hours.

I might do the same thing with a mannequin, as the photos on eBay and other sites look cool in 3d, as the OP wanted, but for now I like the "flat" T-Shirts.
