Popping out of a picture

Recommended Posts

Would someone please help me figure out how to pop out a picture as indicated in the tut. I cannot figure out how to create a shape that mimicks the one in step 2/3 and also how to invert the box and picture as indicated. This is all new to me and I really look forward to not being so novice. Thanks in advance.

Basically, you use the cut-out technique to isolate the subject of your picture from it's background by putting it on its own layer. Then, use other layers to build your picture frame.

BTW, here is one that I did:

Popping out or not popping out, that is the question...I am afraid to ask help, cause sometimes we new guys look like if we are talking alone cause nobody answer to our question... I wonder where I am doing wrong: in choosing the image? in the rotation step of the (bloody) black box or else? Hope I am not talking to the wind...please any good-hearted willing to help? Gasp! ... anyway an other (wrong) try

I am so confused I want to scream! But, I'm practicing away and have the first few steps down OK.

1. insert pic

2. duplicate

3. Add new layer, create box & fill in black, rotate box.

After this I get all messed up as I'm confused with the instructions: select black box and select 2nd picture to invert? How can you select both at the same time? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

BTW - Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

you just go the layer that has the black box, use the magic wand and click on the black box, go to the layer with the 2nd picture and hit Ctrl+I then hit Delete.

Did that solve your problem nanettealsop?

Hello everyone, i'm new to the forum but i have been using PDN for awhile. Here is my pic. I used the eraser instead of the lasso because i just can not keep a steady hand. I just followed everything else until i got to the lasso part.

This tutorial is so much fun: - here is my second attempt. I need to master the feathering tool though.

great tutorial, here's my attempt.

EDIT: Next time, try a picture with less nudity. ~BoltBait

were you talking to Velese not BoltBait, and that doesn't look like nudity to me.

BoltBait replaced the image that was there with that message. Before he did that, there was an image with nudity there.

Excellent tut and a very nice effect!

I used a drop shadow instead of the white border/frame thing. :mrgreen: (Couldn't figure out how to make the border look right).

I also (somewhat ineptly) clone stamped the top right corner because the Magic Wand tool wasn't working for me.
