    Removing a Background

  • 8/2/2019 Photo Editing Skills


    Because the background of the image

    was so plain, and was the same colour, I

    was able to use the Magic Eraser toolto get ride of the background

    Technique One

  • 8/2/2019 Photo Editing Skills


    Firstly I clicked the select button on the tool bar, which then was a drop down

    menu in which I picked the Colour Range option, this option allows to select the

    colours in which you want to delete or edit accurately. After clicking on the

    background I closed the colour range window and then back spaced the selected

    which got rid of the grey background.

    After I removed the main background, there was still some blurry bits that the colourrange did not select. So in order to get rid of the blurry areas, I used the eraser tool. In

    order to get rid of the areas accurately, I had to change the sizes of the eraser just to

    make sure that I did not get rid of parts of the actual image.

    Fire Text

    Firstly I made the background of my layer black, and then made sure that my text was white.

    Then I right clicked on the text layer, which bought down a drop down layer which then

    allowed me to Rasterize Type which makes the text layer into an image. After rasterizing the

    layer, I duplicated it by dragging the layer down to the bottom. Then i turnt off the layer by

    clicking on the eye button

    After that, I clicked the Image button on the tool bar, and on the drop down menu I

    clicked Rotate Canvas which then bought down another drop down menu in which I

    picked 90 CW. I then clicked on the Filter button on the tool bar, went down to

    Stylize and then clicked on the option Wind. I clicked on the Wind option 3 times to

    make it stand out a bit, then I rotated it back again 90 CCW (counter clockwise).

    I then had to merge my background and my text together, so in order to do that I had to

    duplicate my background, by dragging it down to the make a new layer option, the select

    both the text & the copy of the background, right click it and then click on the merge

    option. After merging the background and text together, i then went onto the filter option

    again, and then chose the blur tool, which then bought down a drop down menu to pick the

    kind of blur, and I chose the Gaussian

    I then had to use the selection tool to select around my text, but also leave

    enough room above my text for my flames. Then I went on the filter button and

    then went down to liquify option. To create my flames I changed the size of my

    brush to about 19, and then clicked on the places where I wanted my flames an

    then dragged it upwards. For bigger flames I just increased the size of the brush,

    and then just used the same technique.

    After creating my flames I clicked Ok and then clicked on the deselect button on the

    select option on the tool bar. Then to add some colour to my text went down to the

    adjustment layer button and clicked on the hue and saturation option. Then I

    clicked the Colourize button and then put the saturation all the way to its highest,

    then I moved the hue to about 40 then I repeated the step to give it a bit more

    texture, but instead I left the Colourize unchecked, and put the hue option to about

    I then out the original Addie layer on and went down to the effects menu and clicked on

    gradient overlay. Then I clicked on the gradient box, so that I could change the colours, I

    want my word to finish of white, so I left the button on the far right to be white, however I

    did not want my word to be black I wanted it to have an orange effect, so I double clicked

    on the black button which bought out another colour box. After picking my colour, I just

    clicked ok on all of the boxes.

  • 8/2/2019 Photo Editing Skills


    First of all, I started with a black background, and then typed in my name Addie inpink. I then went onto the filter option on the tool bar and clicked on the Stylize.

    option, and then selected Tiles. When I clicked on the tiles option, a box popped up

    asking if I would like to Rasterize the text, I clicked ok, as it turns the text into a

    picture. When I clicked ok, another box popped up, asking how many tiles I would

    like and the offset, and then I clicked ok, I did that twice so that my text could have

    more texture.
