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 into ...
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 ...
1) Use a Black & White adjustment layer.
2) Use a Photo Filter adjustment layer. I used a custom purple #6c118e. I made the intensity 95% and the opacity 98% (really just messing with the sliders)
3) Added a levels adjustment layer to brighten the image. I just moved the white point slider to the left, towards the middle.
4) Added overall saturation ...
Those are safe regions of your camera: Blender has the same tinted border. If you don't want it when looking through the camera, you can go to Options > Configure > View > Tinted Border and disable it.
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;
With Screen blend mode the values of the pixels in the two layers are inverted, multiplied, and ...
The technique is called "marbling," and is achieved by pouring multiple paints into a wide shallow container and then using a stick or toothpick to gently stir them together. With decent lights and a camera, you will probably get faster and better results doing this with real-world materials. I think that the sample images were probably done "IRL" rather ...
I couldn't see the attached example but a little image-Googling made me guess it's the 2013 Denver County Fair poster. If it is, that effect can be done in Inkscape. Here's one way to do it:
Make 2 different gradient filled "rays" per sunburst. The angle of the pennant shapes depends on how many rays of each you want in a sunburst (9 degrees in ...
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 ...
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.
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.
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 ...
It should be simple to do if you build your layers like this.
Orange layer set to multiply
Levels layer (if needed)
Black and white image
If levels are needed, just push the contrast and maybe make the black more grey if you want it to appear faded.
When you make a gif, every frame is a single image with different settings in the layers palette. Therefore, you need to create the image in the layers palette and then create the frames and animate it.
So basically you're working backwards. First create the image, add all the shadows and effects you need and then animate it.
Also, if you want to add a ...
These images are not the size you say. The top one is 1280 x 720, and they aren't the same aspect ratio either. However if you can get them the same size, you can open the black image as a new layer above the photograph (using File > Open as Layers).
Then set the layer blending mode to Screen in the Layers panel, making sure you select that Layer. Then you ...
I see you have found some plausible images of detoriated painted surfaces. Also the knackered black text is quite plausible except its paint is not at all washed out during the years. If that's wanted, washing the colors by painting over is already presented in another answer.
Obviously you have still not tried to erode text RESTRICTED AREA, which is a hole ...
There's a screen capture app that has similar capabilities called ShareX - I believe it's for Windows only, and it's Open Source. Here's an example of what it can do below. All of the additions were made using the application. You can also use the software to create video and gif screen captures. I have no affiliation with the software or its developers.
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 ...
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.
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 ...
Let's add a little noise to the image to help the two photos blend more seamlessly together. Go up to the Filter menu at the top of the screen.
choose Noise, and then choose Add Noise. This brings up the Add Noise dialog box. Set the Amount to somewhere between 2-6% depending on the pixel dimensions of your image. I'm working on a low resolution ...
For some reason this question has popped up after 5 years it was posted. Then obviously web designers hadn't blending modes such as hard light, multiply etc... They had only transparency for blending layers.
That has not prevented attempts to get something altough partially transparent greyshade texture made the colors dull as we see in older answers and ...
Generally it's desired to apply the darkening and gradient on the same element. This is true when you want the whole image to be darkened (as it seems you want). To do so, you just have to use a linear-gradient:
/* Top color overlay, in this case darkening */
rgba(28, 31, 29, 0.7),
It is because you have a margin on the class box
/* margin: 25px; */
border: 3px solid #BC3E40;
See jsfiddle - https://jsfiddle.net/ry4ummkp/1/
If you want space between the red outline and the container you can add padding to the container instead of a margin on the box. This may affect your ...
