maylin Posted November 17, 2008 Share Posted November 17, 2008 Hello everyone, I all ready have this odd feeling this is going to be locked because I've probably missed the tut somewheres along the line... but I'm gonna give it a shot any way. Yes, I am a beginner, but I've worked with other software programs and always do my best to find the answer if I don't have to ask... but, I can't really find anything on the search section about a particular question I'm needing help with. I like challenges, so I was looking into the (A tut on a tut possibly :? ) Mike Ryan Signature Tutorial: http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=25248 There is a step that confuses me, but as soon as I can figure out what it means, I'm sure I can get the rest. If anyone can give me and idea at least, I will leave you all alone, I promise. :oops: Here is the steps: (I get this, and have the alpha mask plug, as where it should be on my computer) #3 After you have built the body of your signature, open up Alpha Mask found in your object submenu. If there is already a file directory in the plugin dialog [see Sample] then reset Alpha Mask (This one confuses me all to pieces) #4 Set your plugin to remove black. This should cleanly remove the black from the image leaving pure white. Set the original layer - Signature Body - to hidden. We are keeping this layer for archiving purposes only, including Alpha Masking later down.. THE QUESTION(s): How do you set your plugin to remove black? Is the signature layer selected as your doing the alpha channel? I'm getting that maybe the image your creating is made in black and then set to white using the alpha channel? These are the only questions I have for this tut. I know, I know... I'm putting too much on my plate... I'm an "unheathy artist". :oops: All I asking for is a little help. I don't care if it gets locked as I don't wanna be locked out of the forums all together. This is my first question post. I've done a few tutorials on all kinds of things, so I just thought to step it up a bit with something a little more challenging. Well... Mike Ryan did a good job with the challenge part. Any help is appreciated. Thank you for your time. -Maylin Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
