Popping out of a picture.

Recommended Posts

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...

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. :?

My go at it... Let me know what you think... And yes the smoke was kinda difficult


That's pretty amazing. :-)


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

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:
