Great combining! A wonderful romantic scene! Did you use the buZZ filter or photoshop?

03-12-2006, 12:39 PM
Thanks, Kirk...all done in Photoshop Elements.

Just AWESOME! Kristen is this a photo manip? I am just stunned the way you have an eye for taken 2 separate photos and painting them. If this is a manip, then I just discovered another talent you have.WOW!:clap:

Thanks, Babs! Yes, it's a manip. When I am working on something with LOTS of detail (as now), and get sick of it, I like to clear my mind by working on a minipulation. Barry is the MASTER...though what he does is more involved than just manipulation.

This is wonderful Kirsten is there a tut for this it looks simple yet complicated,well done:clap:

Hi, Bev :wave: ...there's no tute. Simply play with filters if you enjoy it, and you'll get some wonderful effects! If there's a "secret", it's to make multiple layers of your image, apply different effects and use different transparencies to combine them.

Here's exactly the same photo, "sketched' in Painter, then adjusted for hue and saturation...


If you enjoy manipulations, visit the forum dedicated just to that! (find it under "Photography")

Thanks Kirsten should have known it all comes back to layers:eek: ive had so many people try to help me with them and i just cant get it DUH i think i have a mental block when it comes to them :evil: ive been tracing a face for example in quick clone then i want to make the sketch a layer to paint and do you think i can do it NADA i hope Babs dosent read this she was one who really tried to help among many others :thumbsup: but when it comes to layers im the village idiot:lol:

In Painter:

To lift your Cloned image Tracing Paper sketch to a Layer, use Select > Alll, then click inside the selection using the Layer Adjuster tool.

Now the Canvas is blank and your sketch is on a Layer.

To see through the Layer to other Layers or the Canvas, change the sketch Layer's Composite Method to Gel. That will make the white background transparent.

Composite Methods are at the top left corner of the Layers palette where you see the word Default unless you've changed the Composite Method. Just click the small triangle on the right side of the Composite Method rectangle to access the list of Composite Method options.

That's it!

Oh dear! I find layers so easy. :confused: Each of us has some program element that throws us, though.

03-13-2006, 08:54 AM
Bev all I do if I want to trace something is .. put a new layer over the orig, do my tracing then take the traced layer and paste it as a new layer on a blank canvas , add another layer underneath and there you have it :)
