The Photoshop CS5 solution: 1. Take a photograph. 2. Edit the picture, making selections and filling them using the "Content-Aware" to make it seamless. 3. Use Filter/Other/Offset and set the offset to whatever is 50% of height and width (ex. +50, +50). 4. Use Clone Tool to take away all seems. 5. Use Offset once again, this time with negative digits, -50, ...

You could change all of the black to transparency as is answered here Or a possible alternative since you are programming (depending on what you are programming of course) could be to program the behavior that the screen blend mode enforces; From Wikipedia; With Screen blend mode the values of the pixels in the two layers are inverted, multiplied, and ...

You don't need to do anything other than ensure the bleeds are set in the Document Set Up and you include bleeds when exporting to PDF. Just place the image (or whatever) across the gutter of the facing pages. When you output facing pages to a standard single page press-ready PDF the bleed will be added to the gutter area. You simply don't see the bleed ...

The black lines should have some variation in thickness. Eliminate the line around the outside as it breaks the flow of the grid outside the frame, which Mondrian was playing with. Notice that in the painting each colored block could go on outside the frame and we are only seeing a cropped piece of something larger or perhaps infinite. pay close attention to ...

If you have to keep the transparency, then at least make the icon itself solid, this will have enough contrast to work against the dark background - even if you can't see the outer transparent background.

I would do it like this: CSS + HTML The icon as background image The text as normal HTML-text

Best bet is probably Select > Color Range. Then click a white portion of the canopy and play with the "Fuzziness" slider to get you where you want. Once you do that click okay and your'e left with a selection. Make the selection a Mask (probably have to invert the mask afterwards). Then simply lower opacity for the layer and Save for Web. You can save ...

You can always combine multiple layers and apply the same blending mode, but for many blending modes it won't look the same as having separate layers. That's just not mathematically possible for many of these effects, including overlay. As you can see from the above link, overlay is not a commutative function. That is, if you change the order of the ...

The solution is a lot easier than the problem defined. Just hold the ALT key, then move your mouse cursor between those two layers (blending layer and the artwork layer). The cursor will change to this strange arrow, then CLICK. The blending layer will then be applied only to the artwork layer beneath it and your problem is solved!

Horatio is absolutely right - the symbol is made up of rotated cutout sections, not complete 'petals'. The method consists of creating one petal, rotating it 45% and then subtracting one shape from the other using the path difference and intersection tools. The SVG (from InkScape v0.48) for the image below can be found here and can be used on black or ...

Here is a larger version picked randomly from google search: ( http://jamesonbull.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/alfresco_logo.jpg ) I see a few minor differences: your white outline is transparent; your final orange overlay is not orange and yellow... However, if you conceive of the repeating element as this: Your problem no longer exists.

There are a number of ways to create circles within circles in photoshop. Here are two: First Method: Filter > Sketch > Halftone Pattern - probably defaulting on dot but can be changed to circle. Foreground color and backgrond color will determine the colors. Second Method: For say a 1px circle with a 1 pixel margin create an action that says: Expand ...

Select all the shape layers Group them Command/Ctrl+G Highlight the group in the Layers Panel Choose Layer > Layer Style > Color Overlay and choose the color you'd like. I don't know why you put "Illustrator" in the title or tagged this question with Illustrator. It has nothing to do with Illustrator at all. Or, am I missing something? If you need each ...

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.

I would try it with some grey. So instead of 70% opacity with a black button, Try with some dark grey with a little less transparency. You have to look for ways to get some white into it. Very transparent textures, gradients or very slight white noise might help also.

Here's my take on it, it's a bit complicated but very effective, and can especially be used when you scan a drawing and want to take the pencil tracing from the white background in order to change the color. (Switch the Ctrl for Cmd if you are on Mac.) Make sure your image is flattened first on a white background Select all and copy (ctrl+a, ctrl+c) Go ...

It appears to be some kind of rendering error in CMYK mode, maybe in the way Illustrator previews transparency for CMYK? I don't know why it renders that way normally, but if you turn on View > Overprint Preview or View > Proof Colors, it should eliminate that variation. Your final output shouldn't have any remnant of that shift (my test was exporting ...

(in Photoshop) The easiest way would be to adjust this in the 'effects' of the layers palette. To do so, just go to the bottom of the layers palette, click on the 'fx' button and select 'gradient overlay', adjust the gradient as needed. Note: this is providing you have each piece on it's own layer so the effect can be applied individually. (in Illustrator) ...

I came upon your question while trying to solve a similar situation. I wanted to take the "shadows" from an image of a barn to use as an overlay on text to give the impression of the text being painted on the side of the barn. I'm not sure if my solution was the "best" way, but seemed to be fairly simple and give a lot of control to the effect I was going ...

Try using something like: #e7eccc (R: 231, G: 236, B: 204) instead of white, #8c1f00 (R: 140, G: 31, B: 0) instead of red, #0c183e (R: 12, G: 24, B: 62) instead of blue, #d29b00 (R: 210, G: 155, B: 0) instead of yellow, #11120c (R: 17, G: 18, B: 12) instead of black If it still doesn't feel right, try randomly filling the rectangles with dots slightly ...

A couple of suggestions: First use a mesh-based distortion like Puppet Warp, Liquify. Though if you have access to Illustrator, I think its Envelope Distort > Make with Mesh may be the best way to wrap a texture easily. Separate each item to its own layer. You'll avoid a lot of unnecessary stretching that way. Use Displace at the very end to sell the ...

What I think you are trying to say is you want a lemon texture over an image. To do this, I would do this: Create a fully colored lemon (or just use an image) Go to Image > Adjustments > Desaturate Image Go to Edit > Define Pattern Create a Blank New Layer above the Image you want to place the texture Go to Edit > Fill (Make Sure under Blending, Mode is ...

Photoshop's default settings make matching RGB colours in images with colours in code near impossible. But, it's easy if you change a few settings. Here's what to do: Choose Edit → Color Settings and set the working space for RGB to Monitor RGB. If you’re using Photoshop CS6, click More Options and turn off Blend Text Colors Using Gamma, because it changes ...

You can try... Highlight all layers Group them Convert Group to Smart Object Then change the mode. That may yield better results.

I see you have the image open in Index colour mode (see your Photoshop file toolbar - fb.png @ 582% (Index)). Index colour mode is a low-colour (256 colour) option that can have unexpected effects on your raster graphics. Saving from this colour profile will no doubt perpetuate any problems you are having in the Photoshop file into the exported graphic. Try ...

"Transparency Shapes Layer" is one of a group of checkboxes that modifies how layer effects affect the layer they are applied to and layers below. It is not something you would use unless you needed to restrict an applied layer effect to the non-transparent parts of the layer. You're using it for something it is not intended for, so the result is a kind of ...
