Put your artistic license to work

Added on Tuesday 17th of February 2009 01:07 am EST


Adobe Photoshop CS/CS2/CS3

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows


When you follow along with our step-by-step techniques, don’t settle for our results—put your artistic license to work and experiment with other options. We can’t give you all the possible alternatives to enhance your designs, but we’ll show you a few.

For example, in the article, “Achieve a sophisticated etched-glass look without any fancy carving ” in this issue of Inside Photoshop, we showed you how to load a luminosity selection as the basis for a glass photo etching technique.

Immediately after you load the luminosity selection, before you fill the selection with white, invert your selection for a different look (Select > Inverse). Then, instead of adding a new layer and filling it with white, fill it with a different color, and then follow the rest of the steps we outlined in the article for results similar to Figure A.
