If it's arty and you had fun, it qualifies.

Thx for the additional detail on the glove and link to pattern, too.

Hi Craig,

After you have gone through the basic steps, you should have three layers.

1. Top layer ( Active ) Blend mode set to Dissolve. filled with your background colour or pattern, much like pic1 below.

2. Middle layer - blend mode set to Overlay ( Looks much like the above layer.

3. Bottom layer - original image.

Load your previously saved SELECTION ( Selections/Load/Save to disk ) as in pic2 below.

You should now have something like pic3 below, with the marching ants around your selection ( thankfully they dont march in a jpeg ).

Activate the Erasor and rub through as in pic4. You can safely go over the edges as any changes will only occur inside the marching ants: as in pic4.

When you're happy with the result, Selections none. Merge all and save.

Sorry my explanation was so lame. Hopefully I'll get better.

==========================================
Marthig - Imagination and flair, Great image!!!

Thanks Cathy - just stumbling along.

Regards to all,
Mitch.

Cathy, Craig, Mitch and of course Danny !

Thank you so much to all of you for your encouraging comments, I agree with you Mitch , this is addictive. In truth the whole RP forum is addictive.

Mitch I loved the way you changed the angle of the image, just like Craig said it does look like the cover of a fashion Magazine, and the variations you made, of all of them I liked the last one most.

Regards - Martha

Pretty indeed !

Hi Steve,

I like the last two variations you posted better than the previous one, they are all highly original too, specially the last one and since the photo is excellent and the model just perfect no matter what you do she is still coming through beautifull. I liked the scotch tape variation too

Thank you Martha.

Had a lot of fun with the "scotch tape" one.

You did indeed get the 20's 30's look on yours. Great colors!

Lillian Gish and Poli Negri eh? Didn't know anyone remembered them but chronologically challenged folks like me. 8-)

mitch,

ok, i see the problem. you have a newer version of psp. i'm using 7.xx. you must be using 8 or 9, both of which had some nice upgrades.

apparently you're loading your saved selection in as a new layer and then erasing. ok. got it. thanks

steve,

dont forget greer garson

Craig
