Anonymous asked: hi nita i want to ask you some photoshop questions if you dont mind nn what texture did you use in /post/30889291533 and /post/30785821963/wonkyu-asked-by-doubley90 the diagonal lines/squares one? thanks in advance!
Hello!! Ahh the ‘diagonal lines’ effect is actually not a texture; but I used one of the Filter features in PS called Halftone Pattern. And I’m gonna explain about it a bit since another anon asked me the same question few days ago. Here it is:
I’m using this pic of my flawless 6 boys. Let’s say the colorings have been applied to the image and here’s the result (don’t forget to Sharpen the image too!):
After merging the picture and coloring, duplicate the layer. Before applying the filter, you have to make sure one thing: make sure your foreground and background color palette are black and white respectively - or - the foreground color is at least way darker than the background.
Because this will affect the result of the Halftone Pattern color.
Now apply the filter. Go to Filter > Sketch > Halftone Pattern. Here’s a screencap for those who aren’t familiar with it yet:
Click on it and start to change the settings. Mine is: Size: 1, Contrast: 0.
Your image will look like this:
Don’t worry because it isn’t the final result! Now change the layer opacity settings to ‘Soft Light’, and voila; your Halftone Pattern-ed image is ready:
And that’s just it. Hope the explanation helps! c:
Good morning/good day/good evening to everyone especially to anon who asked me about this; as promised before I’m writing the tutorial of making this kind of edit and here you go (I’m using different photo though). Hope it will be helpful and useful! ^^
Anonymous asked: hi may i know how you cut the background of the picture? i've seen a lot of this tutorial but it's so hard to understand and their images that they're using is always simple backgrounds., i hope you will explain it easier in your way. ^^
Helloooo :) Omg I’m sorry it took me so long to reply your message! Ok here’s a little explanation about background cutting. And first of all, I’m not a good ‘background cutter’ so I prefer choosing pictures with simple backgrounds to change it, lol. But I’ll try my best to explain…
Ok now let’s cut the background of this gorgeous Jennifer Lawrence photo!
Zoom the picture to 500%, and use Polygonal Lasso Tool to cut the background. Most professionals will use Magnetic Lasso Tool or Pen Tool to cut because you can make curve easier. But I’m not a pro and I’m not good at using one of those so I’ll just stick to Polygonal Lasso Tool XD And don’t forget to change the Feather settings to 2px!
If you have finished making selection, your image will look like this:
Please do not press the Del button directly because it will cut the main photo. But, press Shift+Ctrl+I to Invert the selection. Your image will look like this:
Now that the selection is on the background, go press the Del button to clear it out.
The background is out but to make the cut smoother, use Eraser tool to erase the edge of the image (in this case I’m gonna erase the messy hair on the right as well). Zoom to 300%, and use 14px eraser.
And here’s the final result!
Like I told you before, I can’t cut really well, so forgive me if the result isn’t that good x)) But that’s how I cut the background of any picture. Hope it helps! ;D
