Paperclips.. How? HELP - I'm stuck!!
Posted 02 July 2005 - 04:25 PM
I'm hoping someone out there can help me with my query.
I'm trying to put a paperclip onto a LO, to attatch a photo to, but i can't seem to get the back part to be behind the photo and the front part in front! It's either all behind or all infront! I know how it should look like, you know - like when you attatch paper together and you just see the front part of the paperclip...
I've had a look in the university but can't find anything about this, and couldn't watch the tutorial i wanted to anyhow (stupid cm'pooter!!).
I use Microsoft Picture IT 7.0 if that makes a difference.

Basically, you ned the clip to be on top of your paper, and then delet the part that would be underneath, you know?

Go do your effects pull-down menu> transparency> transperancy brush. Set to 100% transparent. Take the brush and erase the part of the clip or sharm that is supposed to go behind.
If you don't see a transparency brush, maybe you have an erase feature somewhere. It is the same concept.
After you have erased the parts of the element you want to erase be sure to group it to the paper or photo so that as you move elements you don't accidently move one or the other, it is such a pain to try to line up again!

I wasn't sure if it was more technical than this! I wondered if it was all about layers!?
Anyhow, thanks all for your help - much appreciated.
