How do I place a watermark on a photo with photoshop?


place-watermark-photo-photoshop-ossnw04fknubfptbovfyfssb-1-0.png

0. Paste or create a layer over the top of the 'main image'.
1. Select the layer you want to be the watermark.
2. Change opacity to what you want, ensuring you can still see the layer underneath it.

Note: you could also change the blending on the watermark layer if you wanted a different effect.

I am simply trying select half an image and flip it so that I end up with a symmetrical image. However Gimp keeps closing itself out every time when I reach the point of pasting into a new layer the half...


How big is the file? Have you got plenty of hard disk space? If its a huge file, it could be simply struggling and it may solve it to shrink it down.... Or if you have stacks of layers, lose some/flatten/merge some and try again.
If not, sometimes there is glitches in running Gimp on a Mac.... It could be this is simply a bug...but I would have thought they'd ironed out the creases by now....
Might be best just to do the operation but slightly differently? For instance, copying the layer into a new document ... if it is a bug, a small variation in the process may avoid it.

How to mix two images ? specially at border of picture.


1. Open the first image.
2. Open the image you want to merge or mix with the first image or border.
3. Press Ctrl + A to select the entire image.
4. Press Ctrl + C to copy the selected image.
5. Click in the title bar of the image you opened first.
6. Press Ctrl + V to paste the second image over the first image.
7. If the Layer window is not displayed press theF7 function on your keyboard.
8. Make sure the top layer is highlighted or click on the layer to highlight it.
You should see the border around the image. If you want to hide part of the top image at the bottom lower left of the layer window you will see rectangle with circle which displays add layer mask when you hover the mouse cursor over it. Hold the Alt key and click on the Add Layer Mask Icon. This will hide the top image until you select the brush with a white color and paint the layer mask layer. The Layer Mask is the black rectangle next to the layer image which must have the white rectangle around it when painting with the brush. If you do not see the top image mixing with the bottom image make sure the black rectangle is selected or click on the black rectangle to select it. If the layered image is selected you will be painting it white and alter the image. If you revile part of the image when painting the mask you can hide it by changing the brush color to black and painting the reviled layer to hide it again. Layer masks are very powerful which you will need to look up in the help files for more information to gain full power of the tool.

Where is the dodge tool?


Dodge tool should be on your toolbar- its like a black circle with a little line coming down diagonally from it- shares a button with sponge and burn so may be hidden behind them. Left hold click if it is that should bring up a little drop down that will let you select the tool you need.

Other than that, a much much better way to dodge/burn is to use layers- go to layers (top of the screen beside file, edit, etc)
select new->layer- this should open a box.
Now- set the colour drop down to none
Mode drop down- Set to soft light, feel free to experiment with hard light etc
Tick the soft light neutral colour (50%grey) box- should be at the bottom of the box.
Set opacity to somewhere between 5 and 10 %.
Click OK

This puts a new layer over your image, now you can use the paint brush- set your colours to black and white, you use white to dodge black to burn.
Though this may sound complicated, it soon becomes second nature once your used to it and gives you alot more control of your dodging and burning- leaving you with a much more 'natural' image. Once you get the hang of it you can add new layers (using the same process i went through above) to slowly build up your dodging and burning- changing the opacity level in the layer box to a higher setting means you put more paint on the image- your burning will be darker, dodging lighter.
Using mulitple layers also allows you to take away a dodge layer if you think you have gone to far- and saves you stepping backward when you mess up- its almost like painting.

Crop the photo in diffeent shaps like heart.


The crop tool will not let you crop in shapes like elements cookie cutter tool will. However, there is a work around to do what you want to do which indecently is the same as you would have to do in Photoshop CS4.
1. Create a new document file or press Ctrl + N.
2. Open an image you want to crop.
3. Press Ctrl + A then Ctrl + C to copy the image.
4. Select the new document file you created and press Ctrl + V to paste the new image in a new layer.
5. Select the Rectangle tool or press U for the hotkey.
6. Move the mouse over to the Rectangle Tool and hold down the left mouse button and select Custom Shape Tool.
7. At the top of the menu you will see a Shape: icon with a pull down option. Left Click on the arrow to expand the window to select the shape you want. If you want more shapes to choose from when the shape window is displayed click on the arrowhead with a circle around it and select a new library or all.
8. Use the mouse to draw the shape to the size and location you desire.
9. The shape will be in a new layer with a mask which will cover the image. Hold down the Ctrl key and left click on the Shape 1 layer in the layer window. This will mask the shape and only the shape.
10. Press Ctrl +Shift + I to invert the mask selection.
11. Use the Select pull down menu to Feather, Modify, Contract, Expand and Border if you want apply those effects around the edge of the mask.
12. In the Layer window click on the eye next to the Shape 1 layer to hide the image.
13. Select the image layer you want to crop and press delete which will delete everything outside the custom shape you created.
14. Do not forget you can right click on the image layer and select Blending Option to add drop shadows and other special effects for the cropped shape.

Open both images, select with pen, marquee or lasso tool a section in 1st image.
Copy section- click on 2nd image - paste.
Open Window Layers. You see your selection on a layer. 2nd image is on Backgroundlayer, which does not allow any changes. Select BG layer,click on little arrow on top of layer window and duplicate BG layer, delete BG layer, or click on the eye symbol. Now you have 2 images left on 2 layers, which you can work with. To merge click on arrow of layer window - select merge.
Tip: after select 1st image click on Select - Feather, than copy and paste in 2nd image.
You can also drag selection from 1st to 2nd image.

You probably need to flatten the image to get it into a background layer only. Choose in menu: Layer/Flatten image then try to save your image.

If it didn't work, then most likely your image is in 16 bits/channel mode, change it to 8 bits/channel. Choose in menu: Image/Mode/8 bits/channel.

How to delete someone using Adobe Photoshop CS3?


It will depend on the background as to how easy or hard this will be.

Read the help files on using the Cloning Stamp.

First I would cut out the person(s) directly adjacent to the person you want to remove (take your time to get this done accurately - enlarge the view to say 300% - note that you can do sections at a time and ADD to the selections until you have all of the people you want - you only need to do this along the edges of the area that you want to erase the person from - COPY the selection, do not CUT the selection).

Paste this back as a new layer. Slide this to one side.

The reason for doing this is to make the next step easier without having to worry about working up to an edge.

Now working with the background layer:

If the background is easy - use 100%, then blend in by selecting another cloning area of a similar background and use it sparingly at say 25% to make the new area look different from the original cloning area. I would just remove "noticeable" objects - possibly by just selecting a spot and clicking once (doing this as many times as you need to.

If the bacground is difficult - you will need to "construct" the background using the Clone Stamp - for instance, if there is a tree branch that needs to be extended through the new area - you may have to carefully clone it bit by bit until it looks right - don't forget to clone from different areas if the background is trees as trees do not tend to have long straight branches.

When you have done all of this, go back to Layer 1 (the new one you created earlier) and slide this back into position.

Under Layers in the Menu Bar - defringe the image (layer 1) - this will blend it back in better (experiment with the number of pixels). Then flatten the image.

When I paint on a image it does nothing but history says all.


Maybe you did in the wrong layer.
Open the layer window, then select the layer with the image you want to erase/ paint.

Undo White Balance Sony F707


If you have Photoshop: Layer>New adjustment Layer>Levels Use the middle eyedropper tool and click on something in your photo that should be gray/dark gray. Or: Use the white eyedropper (far right eye dropper) and click on something in the photo that you know is (or should be) white. You can try the gray first, then the white.
