To begin, open a photo editing programme and choose a picture that you like looking at. In this article, I’ll show you how to do it in Photoshop. You just need to tap the Threshold and OK buttons in Photoshop to create a new adjustment layer. Use the slider (shown below) to control the amount of black and white in your image in the newly opened window. Using the context menu that appears when you right-click on one of the layers, you can make it into a smart object. Drop-down menu now displays, so choose filters > filter gallery from it. Press Enter after selecting the Palette Knife icon in the Artistic folder to open a new window with all of the filter options. You may continue by clicking OK after you’ve made your options on the right. A rasterized layer may be created by right-clicking on the layer and choosing Rasterize Layer from the context menu.
Look at Your Pictures with a New Set of Eyes
Using a white brush, you may remove the black areas around the shape you have generated. If you wish to “fix” the picture, you may do so using a black paintbrush. For a system to work, it must be linked to all of its black regions. For a collage-like effect, you may wish to leave off parts of your shot. A black brush was used to join the hat’s top and bottom sections. A black border will be placed around the whole picture if you choose it and then choose Stroke… from the Edit menu. To obtain the best results, I suggest making it at least as thick as necessary to keep the picture together and seem decent on the screen. For the first time, you have the ability to alter your image if you so choose! The words “You and Me” have been omitted from the trimmed version. Take a picture and save it as soon as you are happy with the result. For shadow box spacers, you can visit our website.
Make sure your picture is ready to be edited before you begin.
Take a look at the Design Page Settings Window to make sure your page size and cutting mat have been set correctly. Select Trace Area from the drop-down menu in the Track Window. The whole picture will be traced using this method.
Slide the slider all the way to the right until the whole image becomes yellow, then increase the value. After that, Trace is the next option. Remove all of the original image’s pixels to reveal just the outlines. To rotate a picture, as I did, just open the Rotate Window and do so.
Remove it immediately!
Make a stack of your red card stock and place it on the cutting surface. Send to Silhouette means that the Silhouette will perform the work for you. Please take care while removing it from the mat, separating the areas that are not connected to the rest of the mat. An x-acto knife may be used instead of a cutting machine if you don’t have access to one. Focus on being as exact and extensive as possible while keeping to the main shape of your picture.
