I have decided that on my other blog, I am going to post hints and tips for the camera. It is easier that way, and I will have links there. I wanted a “Coming Soon” image, but I didn’t want to just write on an image, I wanted it to look good. I saw something that one person had created, and decided to try it for myself. I don’t think it turned out too badly. I need to do a bit of work to blend it all in, to stop it looking like I have just hacked off part of the letters.
Here’s what I did:
- I took the original image, and then in Photoshop I used the magnetic cut tool and took some of the clouds. I then save them as a .png with a transparent background.
- I wrote “COMING SOON”
- I used the Layers menu and Merged Visible.
- I drag and dropped the cut parts back to their original spots, Merging Visible after each one.
- I saved it with this as the final result.
