    Engine44 got a reaction from DM1 in Using HSL Adjustment   
    I will use the cutout method but isn’t possible to place an opaque yellow layer on top of the windows?  No blending would occur. Thanks.
    This is my first photo composition using AP. Do you have any suggestions for improvement?  Thanks.

    LOL. Computers and software can be a struggle at times.  But we all keep struggling because the positives outweigh the negatives.  I hope I can help you in the future. Thanks, again.

    Engine44 reacted to John Rostron in Tiled images of Leaves   
    In my recent tutorial, Creating tiles using Affine, especially of Leaves, I explained how to create tileable images using dead leaves (or any other similar object). I show here a selection of such tiled images, with four such tiles grouped to produce a seamless image. 
    Before the tiled images, here is an example of a real patch of leaf litter taken just by holding the camera vertically of the woodland floor:

    This is an example of a composite image of leaves to recreate a leaf-litter-like tiled pattern:

    The following four images are each based on a single tree species, using about twenty leaves of different colours.
    Firstly English Maple Acer campestre.

    Next Cherry Prunus avium.

    Now a garden shrub Guelder Rose Viburnum opulus.

    And finally a strange Chinese relative of the conifers, the Ginkgo, Ginkgo biloba.

    I have used these to form the basis of a set of table mats.

    Engine44 got a reaction from howdytom in Media Browser Question   
    I am reading the Help section about the Media Browser.  It says:
     
    Options available in the dialog via -click menus
     
    Remove—removes the selected folder from Media Browser. The folder and contents are not deleted from your computer. Reload—synchronizes with the selected folder to ensure Media Browser is displaying up-to-date content. Show in Finder—opens the selected folder or file in Finder. Open With Preview.app—opens the selected file in Preview. Quick Look—opens the selected file in Quick Look. When I ^ click in the upper section, only Reload appears. One reason I ask is because I want to Remove some folders from Media Browser.  Am I doing something wrong? 
     
    Thanks

    alt + click on the mask
     
    you can see that only part of the mask "background" is black, the rest, surrounding it is white
    make this all black as well and only let the girl be white (as is)

    Engine44 reacted to v_kyr in Text Styling   
    Create your desired background layer, an image or drawing or what ever Take the artistic text tool and write your text, desirable in some big bold font like Arial black or the like When your text layer is on top and your background layer beneath indented accordingly there is your shine through effect Next select the text layer and adjust via the effects outline panel the desired color and outline width for the text portion  
    Or even more easier, just type your text in the desired big font on your background and then set the text's...
    filling option to none and it's contour option to the desired color and line width

    Engine44 reacted to Chris_K in AP Text Error in a Help Section?   
    Hi Engine44
     
    The current wording in the help is actually correct. I think you may be looking at the help for the Shadows and Highlights adjustment layer, but are using the Shadows and Highlights from the Filters menu which are two slightly different beasts.
     
    The 0-100% going left to right is pretty standard across a number of apps which is why this is implemented this way
     
    Thanks

    Hi Engine44,
     
    Going to Effects > Outer Shadow should add the shadow effect you can see to the righthand side of your image. :)
