In Topic: Silhouette Images In Pse5

17 April 2007 - 06:30 PM

Here is what I found in the Digital Scrapbooking 5 magazine:

Step 1: Remove background from your photo. Use lasso and eraser tools.

Step 2: Create the page background and place your photo on it.

Step 3: Create the iPod effect ( the silhouette): Make sure your photo layer is slected. In the drop down box at the top of the Layers palette set the blending mode to multiply. Next, choose Layer> new Adjustment layer> Hue/Saturation. Check Group with previous layer and click OK. Reduce saturation to -100. Click OK

Choose Layer> New Adjustment Layer> Levels. Again, check Group with previous layer. Move the input levels middle slider all the way to the right. Clcik OK.

Add a new layer.CTRL click the photo's icon in the layers palette to select it. With your new layer selected fill the selection with black.

The article suggest adjusting the opacity slider to see a little hint of the image if you want to make it look like the iPod ads.

Like I said earlier- I haven't tried this yet so I don't know how easy it is to pull off but hopefully it will work for you. Good luck!


WOW ! Thanks so much !
I'll give it a try.

In Topic: Grabing A Letter From A Sheet Of Letters...?

Do you have a lasso (sp?) or freehand selection tool? You can circle it with that and do a copy and paste. If it is an alpha you got from SG you should also have individual letter files as well, so you don't have to do that.

That worked !! Thanks !

In Topic: What Is Happening To My Pse5 Screen ?

I don't have the same problem with the bin, but I did a little clicking around to see what might be happening.

How about if you go to Edit>Preferences>General there's a checkbox for auto hiding the photo bin. If you uncheck it, that might solve your problem.

Holler if that doesn't help. I'll keep watching.

wooooooooooooo hooooooooooooooo
yipeeeeeeeeee yahooooooooooooooo
Thanks ! That did it....Thank You Thank You ! :dancing_penguin:

I am so glad that worked out for you!! Holler if you need anything else.

Where in Georgia are you from? I am in Augusta.

It's gone again ! It won't stay open ???
I'm from Newnan....transplanted from MA in 1994.

Please, can you help me...I need that bin at the bottom and it will not stay open ? This is the first time it has happened to me? Could it be a virus ?
