  7. Hey Guys, Just found this tutorial on how to wrap an image around an object. Unlike some out there, this one is very imformative and explains step by step what to do and how to do it. Here's one I did in about 10-15 minutes. Took a picture of my hand and then followed the steps in the tutorial. And here is a before and after shot I did using the same process on a Miller welding helmet. It's not perfect but it just gives you an idea of what you can do in Cs5. Hope you find this helpful. Just follow the steps in this video.
  8. How to Slice Images for the Web Slicing an image for the Web involves dividing a larger image into smaller tiles that are assembled in a table as the page is loaded. These smaller tiles often load faster than one large image and are necessary if you want a portion of a large image to act as a rollover or an animation. ImageReady lets you divide a graphic with a grid of horizontal and vertical lines and then creates individual files on-the-fly, including the necessary HTML code to build the table. 1. Open the File in ImageReady In ImageReady, select File, Open and select the image file you want to modify. I'm using this image since I already had it ready. 2. Show Rulers If the rulers are not already visible, select View, Rulers to display rulers along the top and left sides of the image window. 3. Drag Guides Position the mouse pointer over one of the rulers and hold down the mouse button until the pointer changes to a double-headed arrow. Drag into the image to create a horizontal or vertical guide. Position guides to correspond to the slices you want to create. 4. Slice Along Guides Select Slices, Create Slices from Guides to slice the image along the current guidelines. The slices show up on the image area as rectangular sections outlined in a highlight color. The currently selected slice appears in gold. 5. Optimize Slices Click the Slice Select tool from the toolbox and click the first slice in the image area to select it. Then open the Optimize palette (select Window, Optimize) and set the optimization for that section, just as you would for an entire file. Repeat this step for each slice in the image area. Preview your optimizations by clicking the Optimized tab. 6. Save Files Select File, Save Optimized to open the Save Optimized dialog box. Select HTML and Images from the Save As Type menu (the Format menu on the Mac) if you want ImageReady to create the HTML file for the associated table. If you are saving a large number of slices, you might want to click the New Folder button and name the new folder to keep all the associated files in one place. Click Save to save and optimize each slice. Multiple files will be created, each file containing a single slice. The files have the original filename and a sequentially assigned number appended to the filename. :cheers:

  10. Ok to start off, you need to open up Photoshop. You want to make a new document about 500 by 500 pixels and fill it in black. Then Filter > Render > Lens flare and change anything to whatever you like. I prefer to keep the settings the same. Move the lens flare near the center of the document so you can do as many waves as you want without it going off the screen. Next, press Filter > Distort > Shear and move the settings around to whatever you like. Here are the settings I used. Now you have a pretty weird looking shape. It would be silly to leave it just like this so you're going to want to duplicate the layer by pressing Ctrl+J . Set this top layer to lighten . Go to Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical and place this wherever you think looks best for your outcome. We changed this layer to lighten so the other layer is visible. Like this. Press Ctrl+E to merge the layers to make coloring easier. Now press Ctrl+U and click the 'colorize ' box to start coloring. Pick whatever. Now to jazz it up a bit I messed around with the brightness and contrast. If you move one bar up, make sure to move the other one up too so a large white cloud wont form around it. If you feel something needs to be added. I made a new layer, filled it in black and repeated from there. Just without the duplication. Final will look something similar to this - yours may be a tad-shade different. Another outcome. Make your own crude looking wallpaper using this tutorial.

  12. How to Fade Images Using Photoshop In this tutorial, I will show you how to animate images using the fade affect. You can use this technique to animate your avatar, forum signature or any other project you'd want to animate. So let's get started. 1. Gather your images You can find images by typing in the image you want to bring up via Google or your favorite search engine. For this tutorial I Googled for Darth Vader. After looking through all the images I selected the following and saved them to my computer: 2. Open Photoshop to Create a New Canvas At your top menu bar in photoshop, Go to File > New to open up your new untitled project. For tutorial purposes use the following settings or you can set your own changing your width and height, respectively. Click okay. A 150x150 blank canvas will appear. 3. Place your images on the canvas Go to File > Open and select the images you want to animate. If you look at your layers panel and see a lock next to the background image, use the combination Ctrl+J to create a copy of the image on another layer above it. Now click on the bottom layer (original background layer) and delete it. Repeat this process if the other images are also locked. Using your Move Tool, move each of your images onto your blank canvas; on top of each other. You may need to adjust the image to fit inside your canvas. If you have problems resizing your image without it being distorted, check my tutorial on how to resize images. Here's what your work area and layer panel should look like (unless your images are different than mine). Time to move over to ImageReady or your animation window. I'm using Photoshop CS2 where ImageReady is already attached to it. 4. Animating The Frames (a) Looking at the animation window, you see the first image that's highlighted in your layer panel. (b) Duplicate the current frame by clicking on the Duplicate Current Frame Icon. © Now, click the eye next to the highlighted image to hide it. When you do this, your next image will appear in the second frame. Repeat these steps, hiding each image when it shows in the animation window. Your animation window should look like this: 5. Tweening for the fade effect (a) Click on the first frame. Click on the Tween icon (the one showing the little circles) and use the following settings then click Okay. On the 7th frame (which is your 2nd image) repeat step 5(a) Repeat the above steps for each image. To delay each image, change your timing to 2sec on each of your original images. On the last image, use the same settings except, change Tween With to Next Frame. If everything went well, go to File > Save Optimized As to save your animation. Here's the final output: Post any problems or questions you have regarding this tutorial.
