Picturesque Clusters Recoloring

16 posts in this topic

I love Syndee Knuckles' new Embellishment clusters for Picturesque, but can't figure out how she did the detailed recoloring of the gray templates. I know how to recolor all the template, but how do you recolor little bits of it & retain the shading? I know a variety of ways to recolor, but these have me stumped. I want to buy them, but I want to know how to make them multi- colored. Is there a tutorial in the zip? Thank you for your help.

I've always wondered this too. I'm sure Syndee will come along to help us all. Thanks for bringing this up. Kay

I just downloaded them - they come with separate pngs and a .psd, so you can tweek every layer the way you want.

I wonder if she used a Gradient?

I love being able to work on each layer separately! Makes things so much easier!! They are in my basket now!

Just put these in my cart. Was hoping there was a PSD for each. I was wondering how to recolor them also if there was no PSD. Thanks for asking Peggy.

Hi there!

Each of the templates come with a layered PSD file and separate PNG's.

As far as the multi-colored effects you see in the samples-

I just just layered a paper over the template pieces, the multi colors come from the

papers I used. Does that make sense?

Perfect! Thank you so much. I'm putting them in my cart right now! I really love layered files and this little hint of clipping papaers is just what I needed.

How cool is that! That it's so simple and yet they look so beautiful. Thanks for the tip Syndee!

Okay, coming in way late to this, but that is the joy of the forum. For instance, I want to make the stems of Modern Wall Bubbles paper, a specific pattern (yes, I know they're thin, but this is an example) I copied the layer for the stems, and placed a paper layer on top of the stem layer, but it didn't work. What did I do wrong? Using CS5.

Hi Leslie Ann, I'm not sure about CS5, but in PSE 11 you would place the paper layer that you want to use above the stem layer, then press Ctrl+G to clip the paper to the stems. I'm sure it's probably something similar in CS5. Maybe someone else will be along with more information for you. HTH :)

Yes, it worked. I didn't understand the clipping part. I'm going to see if I can find out an explanation for that, but it did indeed work. Thank you so much.

 

Here is a weird question for you all, and maybe I should post it to the forum, but it's a bit off topic so I'm not sure. I make book trailers for my books and I've done one so far which I like, but I want to learn more about iMovie and CS6 which I have on my mac. Where do you all go to learn? Lynda.com? I have so many ideas, but no way to figure out how to make them work.

 

Thanks,

Leslie Ann

Glad it worked for you! ;)

When you press Ctrl+G you are creating a clipping mask. I don't have a lot technical information about it, but you can do a Google search for Clipping mask - Photoshop to learn more, or perhaps someone else will be along to explain more about it.

 

Sorry I can't help with your question about iMovie. You may want to post a question in the Mac Users or Technique: Questions & Tips forum. HTH

I've learned a lot about my software on Lynda,com. You should be able to go there and see if they have anything for iMovie before signing up. I know they have a lot for CS6.
