Duplicate the layer and do the correction for the dark edges on that. Remove (and feather) the inside portion from that layer, then you should have text in the middle they way you need it and the edges lighted up. ps: you could also do it with a mask - not sure about the exact particulars though.
Transparent selection with GIMP Below are some possible approaches using default GIMP 2.8. without additional plugins. Color to Alpha: To make the background color in a selection transparent we may take the following steps: Edit - Copy the selection Edit - Paste the selection Colors - Color to Alpha... choose background color Note that in the ...
Using an actual gradient layer will scale the gradient to whatever size you drag and drop it to. Change canvas size. Create a new gradient layer nearly identical to this. Put the image and text on top. To get this two colour gradient, select any two colour linear gradient and change each colour to the one closest to top and the other closest to the ...
In the Save for web dialog,make sure Matte color none.
I'm not entirely sure how you "export to PNG" within Photoshop. There is no such option. I'll assume you are simply using the Save for Web command.... In the Save for Web dialog, ensure there is no Matte color selected (on the top right side of the Save for Web window).
I say: Don't start with a greyscale image! Use the layer effect "Gradient Overlay" with the blend mode "Color". That way you can keep the color information and add some depth by using only i.e. 50% opacity of the effect.
Here's what I would do (if I'm understanding correctly): Duplicate the original and scale it down to 240*240 (depends on what you want the font to look like in the end) Make a new image at 392*240 In the new image, add a layer and make the gradient using the original's (1024*1024) colours (using the colour select tool and the gradient tool). Copy the top ...
Having read and responded to the above, I went hunting and have found that under the Filters menu at Filter->Decor->Round Corners... we have the ability to clip the image as desired, setting the radius as desired. I note that you seem to be restricted to RGB, and a single layer image to be able to use this filter. Even then it doesn't always seem to be ...
For Gimp: These are the steps I took using GIMP to create a color gradient on the source image. Choose the Blend tool to fill with a color gradient. Create a new gradient with desired colors (Left HSV 21,83,91, Right HSV 301,52,60) Apply the Blend tool in Mode - Overlay along a line from left to right: Blend mode Color for a stronger effect:
For Photoshop: Starting with the source image in greyscale: Source: http://everysinglepixel.com Add a layer with a gradient fill on top of it, adjust the blending mode for the layer to something that looks nice. I chose Soft Light and tweaked the opacity.
BgMask is a script that does what you want. It has automatic and manual background extraction mode. Load your images as layers and do Extract Background, and if that leaves artifacts, use manual background extraction tool. See also a video tutorial.
Open the file... use the text tool typically denoted by an icon similar to [ T ]
your background is already transparent, then lock it and you can use the Bucket Fill tool. Retains the feathering and you can use any ol' color you like!
It's just Fractalis: http://www.redfieldplugins.com/filterFractalius.htm No idea if GIMP is supported.
I don't know of any general way to do that, and indeed, in some cases an automatic solution might not even be possible without some way to distinguish the text from the background. (You could, for example, decide that the color a given pixel had in a majority of the images was the background, but that could fail for pixels that were actually covered by text ...
