I need an idea or suggestion with this please?


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Recently I have been adding pictures and/or backgrounds to poems that I write, but this was simple because I didn't edit the pics or create anything that I have added them to, I simply added text to the pic.

Since then, I have been wanting to create my own backgrounds because sometimes they require something specific, and I find that I really need to create just the kind of pic, or background I need.

Right now, I am working on adding something to a poem about Harley Davidson. I found a pic of a bike I want, and used paint.net to cut the bike out of the pic and this turned out great.

Now, I am stuck because I am not sure how to create the rest of this picture. This is the first one I am attempting to do myself, and I know I don't want just a plain background, I think just the bike isn't enough with the text, but well, I just don't have enough experience or knowledge in graphics programs and at this point I could really use some pointers or suggestions, with a tut included if possible. :?

I have included 2 of these poems that I have completed so that you can get an idea what I am doing.

Does any one have any ideas or suggestions for me so that I can continue? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for reading, sorry such a long post. :)

usually, you can create multiple layers and paste the pic over and over in different spots until you fill the screen

then you merge them all together and do a motion blur until its blended nicely.

then put your pic on top of it

it usually works

Ok, sounds good, is there a tut for something like that? I really need something to walk me through step by step. I find this whole process of learning this sometimes complicated as it is a lot to take in, but it is also becoming a lot of fun, and I really like PDN.

Thanks for responding, I appreciate it. :D
