Re: X Ray look

You are more likely to get a response if you post the image here rather than on a site that requires others to download the image before they can see it.

Against my better judgement and because I was curious as to what effect it could be I did look at it - it appears to be just an image converted to black and white possibly using one of the channels.

Re: X Ray look

Id be inclined to say invert the image for something that looks more like an X-ray

just an idea either way

Re: X Ray look

Manpreet,

RetouchPRO is not about doing private tutorials. We are here to help each other and learn from each other. Emailing you may help you, but it does nothing to help everyone else, which is why I included the screen shot of my work space..

I thought it was pretty plain but I will try and explain a little further...
first desaturate (Shift+ctrl+U) the subject then used filter>Stylize>Find Edges,
then cut out subject and put on a separate layer (copy, paste... or drag to a new document)..
do same with other subject(s)..
add a layer filled with white under the transparent layers with all the subjects on them,(the ones with the checkerboard backgrounds) if needed, ..
then reduce opacity on each layer above the white one (Opacity sliders located at top of layers palette)..
(using the Move tool in the selections palette) arrange the subjects the way you want them..
Thats about all there was to it...
Any other questions feel free to ask.

And don't forget to post a copy so we can view your work
