Questions on blurring, fading effects, layering, and text.


Recommended Posts

Hopfully I did this right....

How do I add effects to something - like coloring effects...

Like this for example..

And how do I blur pictures together? (for example this)

And do that bubble with the text on it (and be able to fade it?)

How do I overlay pictures like this...

How do I put text behind a picture like this?

I know lots of questions but im trying to get the hang of this graphics thing.

Thanks so much!

I'm not sure I'm the best to help you, but nice job on the specific topic title! Where'd you learn to do that? :wink:

Anyway, the Overlaying would be rather monotonous cutting out of pixels you don't want. The Text background would be some layering. And the blurring would be alpha masking and gaussian blurring.

Yeah sorry about that whole think! :oops:

Can you explain how to do this?

Well, that's the part I'm fuzzy on.

The Overlay: Cut out (delete) all the background pixels (using Magic Wand, Eraser, etc.) Carefully!. Feather the remainder to make it look nice and smooth.

Text Backround: Cut out the things you want in the foreground. Copy them to another layer (top layer). Add text, etc, to the bottom layer, or make a third layer and put the text there (middle layer, or something like that).

Alpha Masking: Heck, I wish I knew.

Sorry for the brief, basic advice, but I need to get to bed.

Try these tutorials:

(Alpha Masking)

By the way, on the second-to-last image, it says "What Really Happend." It should be "Happened."

It may not be yours, but I thought I'd throw it out there...

Also, I really appreciate that you didn't get mad about having to change your thread title. It really does make things a lot easier. Thanks... Welcome to the forums!

 

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.
