And....they're off!

• Paste your logo onto the apple, position it how you'd like.

• Do whatever distort you like, in this case I did ripple.

• Double click on the layer in the layer's palette to bring up the "Layer Style" box

• at the very bottom, where it says "blend if" use the default gray

• Take the triangle* on the left where it says "Underlying Layer" and drag it to the right to you think it looks natural!

*hold option when dragging the triangle to split it into a more subtle effect.

Hi Tony,

To create a curve layer (aka curve adjustment layer), go to the layer menu and choose "New Adjustment Layer->Curves...".

The "Curves 3" and "Curves 4" are just names that Photoshop assigned to the curve layers--they don't mean anything.

I was thinking about it this morning and it can be simplified a little bit. You can skip the high-pass-filter and just use a greyscaled version of the original in its place. This has the added benefit of having the logo change brightness with the ball.

The second simplification is you can use a levels adjustment layer instead of a curve adjustment layer.

Since I'm in a hurry at the moment, I just shrunk down my PSD file and uploaded it here:

http://home.comcast.net/~preenhausen...er_spritz2.psd

You should just be able to open it, increase the pixel dimensions to what you need and paste your logo into the layer named "Logo Eg 3"; put your original image and the corresponding logo mask on the layer named "Orig + Logo Mask"; put a greyscaled version of your image in the layer named "Original Greyscale".

The sliders are probably already where they need to be, but if not, take a look at them and you'll see the modified sliders. Then move them around to see how they impact the appearance.

That PSD file will probably be there for at least several weeks.

Bart

Label Under Spritz

•I copied the green channel and used threshold on it with level around 40
•I typed in the label over the background layer. Rasterized it and distorted it some.
•I turned the copied channel into a selection and copied the background layer into another layer. That copied layer I placed on top of the text layer and placed the blending mode to luminosity
•I selected the text layer. Selected the edges of the text about 5 pixels worth and copied that to a new layer and ran a ripple filter on it to roughen up the edges of the text.

Craig,

I actually thought your attempt from yesterday was very good as far as getting the label under the spritz.

I'm curious on this one, how did you get the water droplet effects on the label?

thanks bart.

i would also suggest to anyone trying this that they put a background on their label. you very rarely see just text printed on a bottle without a background and it DOES make a difference in how you do this.

and bart, eye candy 4000 demo for the 2nd one. (the cheat is that you cant save the results of this filter normally.)

Final Image

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to say a big thank-you to everyone who helped out on this job.
Believe it or not, I do this for a living! However, the spritz thing always had me stumped until now. Client seems really pleased with the final job.
Part of it is attached. Couldn't have done it without all your help.

I'll be popping in and out of this forum for now on and will try to help out where ever I can. Once again, thanks for your help.

Tony.

P.S. In case anyone is interested, check out my portfolio on my website;

Hey Tony how did you do it?

Very nice job. I was just wondering what technique you did to put the label under the spritz.

I used a simplified version of Bart's earlier explanantion.
I also made a greyscale selection of the spritz which I overlaid over the
top of the label after playing around with the levels to bring out sharper
hightlights of the spritz.
I finished by adding details for distortion by selecting the original label and
using liquify to suggest the spritz water distortion.

Tony.
