Always save BEFORE applying an effect to a large image.

Keep a black background layer and a white background layer while working on images with transparency. Toggle the visibility on the temporary background layers to check your work against the backdrop with the best contrast. It saves the eyes and makes for easier and cleaner work.

If you need guides to line up an image properly create a temporary guides layer and use the line tool to put the guides where you need them. Use the rulers to line them up and a bright colour such as red.

Or for a more complex image use the Grid/Checkerboard maker plug in to make a grid across the whole layer if you need to draw something accurately. :)

Great tip, I actually used this recently for an church website banner, it worked. ;)

Using the eraser at about 15 opacity mimics soft erasing.

Now thats an interesting idea. I`ll have to give that a go sometime.

As far as custom brushes on a separate layer, that`s something I always do. If you find you don`t want the effect anymore you can just delete the layer.

Actually...

Then explain this? You state in this thread that you used photoshop. Then you post your image saying you don't have photoshop. What?

The thread is called "how can i make little shinig dots ?" in GD&Q.

PS brushes come in two forms, one of them being .PNG's. :)

Meaning you can use PS brushes, just import the .PNG into PDN, select the image part of it, then copy and paste. Simple :)

Here something else to enhance Goonfella's tip about the Grid/Checkerboard plug-in. Sometime when using the plug-in, the image disappear if on the layer beneath the Grid. Before rendering the Grid, set your Secondary color to full transparency, and run the Grid render.

Officially retired from this forum. Have a nice day.
