I Tried Something New

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:

  1. Β 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.
    Cutting 1
    Cutting 2
  2. Β I wrote “COMING SOON”
  3. I used the Layers menu and Merged Visible.
    Cutting 3
  4. I drag and dropped the cut parts back to their original spots, Merging Visible after each one.
    Cutting 4
  5. I saved it with this as the final result.

Coming Soon

    • It is πŸ™‚ Although I have played with changing the backgrounds, I haven’t done anything like this before, and I wanted to show how I did it.

  1. There is no end of combinations you can play with in that weird world. I did that post once where I typed up all the menu options… most of them… and then consider that each can be used in combination with not only other options in the menus but with button and command options… it could drive you crazy.
