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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

"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 ...

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 ...
