Popping out of a picture

Recommended Posts

i added rick brewsters "fading/blending gradient" tut and what came out seems to be a good enhancement of my t-rex "walking back into life, harhar!" effect...8)

Everything is coming out right besides the frame. I can't get it to stay white.

It is transparent until I merge the Background and second layer..then it just dissapears altogether.

Can someone tell me what im doing wrong?

Thanks!!

1. I understand this is a tutorial and all but Why revive? If the topic is more than a month old just start a new topic in general discussion.

2. Read the RULES

3 I'd forget the frame it really doesn't do much

hi liquidcore,

look what i've found in the rules:

"If the moderators want to reorganize or officiate things, then we will -- that's our job, not yours."

besides that - this thread's got a dynamic discussion and it's just 2 month old.

hi chrisleighk,

after you used the "move selection" tool to elongate the box, just use the paintbucket tool with white color. make sure, you're in the blackbox-layer. move the paintbucket tool in the frame and white it out. thats what i did...

Yeh, I know, I kept editing my post with new images and forgot to change 3 to 4. Anyway, how about some comments on the images?

They look great, clever ideas :D

Excellent! Just like the "out of bounds" contest on Worth1000.

May I make two suggestions?

1. The shape you describe is a lot easier to make if you create a filled square on a new layer and then use Layers > Rotate/Zoom to move it to the desired angle. That way you can ensure that it will look angled correctly, and not crooked. (Yours looks fine, but I foresee problems with other people...)

2. Feather. A lot. Every layer. It makes things look a lot cleaner and more natural.

My attempt on this is coming soon...

Anyway, I LOVE the tut! Great work.

You were correct about problems with creating the shape David. Could you suggest the levels or amounts we should use in Rotate/Zoom? I am having a problem with this step and am stumped thus far. :?

Hi Folks, I have been trying this tutorial and really need some help. I am a complete novice at photo manipulation and a bit of an idiot. I can only get as far as step 2, I don't understand how to create the black box or how to proceed any further. You folks are probably having a good laugh but is there anybody who could give me an idiots guide on how to do this tutorial. I need detailed button by button guidance. Is there anybody out there who has the patience to help?

Hope you can help

Briddo the idiot :cry:
