I"ve spent several days (reading/watching Utubes) trying to figure out how to make the background on this artwork transparent <sigh> I have a friend that usually does this for me (in another program) but, I really need to learn how to be self sufficent. Any help would sincerely be appreciated. Thank you!
The question Susie is do you want rectangle tin tin or do you want to cut out and blend the fluffy hair? This a sloppy 30 second job but can be done correctly if that's what you're looking for.
Why is this post under Corel Font Manager 2017? Too easy. Edit in Photopaint, use magic wand toll to select white, hit select same. Duplicate image in the layer manager, delete orig, hit delete key, close and save. Need to adjust just open in PP again and use the eraser tool to tweak edges.
Not bad still in Photoline? I'll work on a background that doesn't hide the sins.
Yes. btw, the background, while rgb, is grayscale in appearance. It's been colorized as well as pumping up some of the model's color.
I'm starting to get a feel for the more complicated tools, the blur, the replace color and the drop out color gets complicated. This drop out is starting to get there but with this background there's a light directional issue.
Maybe add a sight black to transparent gradient on the brick background and adjust the opacity? Black beginning lower left to upper left?
This is my last 5 minute edit. Made the clothing desaturated to rid it of the yellow tinge and made the sunlight yellowish.
I'm getting in editorial edits for a book, so I'll be getting back to work tomorrow. It's been fun, though. Thanks, David!
No problem I've been using Akvis on kiddi crap for awhile, I got a few tougher ones in the past but now I have a few that are butt busters. I miss Knockout! I'm like a kid with a new toy. 65 and still haven't grown up.
This one lacks some final touchups but I lightened the woman a bit, the client has the money so this one can work.
