how to acheive this effect.


Recommended Posts

It would be really helpful to those trying to help if you would be more descriptive of the effect you are looking for because there's more than one effect here...

My first thought is this effect, but seeing as how you were the last to post in that thread, you probably know of that already.

Perhaps this one? Or this? Maybe this?

the effect i am trying to obtain is as stated ....the rose....it cannot be achieved by CMY ghost - you remove alpha , downgrade cyan & you are left with magenta & yellow...but if you look at the rose it is obviously layered - but then what???  lightened???  :)

If I'm not mistaken, that is simply a photo of a rose pasted on top of the background image. The edges have been faded with some form of transparency gradient (thought the person missed a spot at the top...), but it appears to me the image of the rose is otherwise unaltered.

thank you - i found a rose - cut out what was not needed - saved as .png then background - imported as layer - put in place but as you will see i did try a favourite TR's EFX but did not get the same effect as the post i posted - seem to think it may have to be done with partial transparency's.

 

i really do enjoy having a reputation of zero - from 1 end of the scale to the other - no pressure.  as there was no plug in i could find anywhere to do this [with the exception of Photoshop & no intention of paying $700Au for 1 effect] just wanted to make sure i had not missed 1.

 

now that i know it cannot be achieved as per original post - great.

 

thanks chaps. :smile:
