Digital Art..

Does that count as a craft? I worked on digital art today. Editing pictures and figuring out how to make gradient text in PSE.

I started with this picture..

Moved Steve over and resized to the size I needed and added the fun  gradient font.

ADDING GRADIENT FONT WITH PSE

Click FILE, NEW, BLANK FILE, adjust size of screen
Click LAYER, NEW, LAYER, name layer or leave as is click OK
Paste image
Click LAYER, NEW, LAYER, name layer or leave as is click OK
Select TYPING TOOL and type your text
Click LAYER, NEW, LAYER, name layer or leave as is click OK
Select GRADIENT TOOL, edit gradient by clicking on the EDIT GRADIENT button if needed
Click and drag mouse in direction you wish gradient on your text

This WILL color the WHOLE screen don’t worry this is suppose to happen.

HOLD DOWN the ALT key and move mouse to the line between your text layer AND the gradient layer, the cursor will change, once it does click the mouse

You should now see your image with the gradient text on top.

Anyhow, after figuring out to do the gradient I decided that you should be able to see everyone’s face so I edited the image to see everyone with the width I needed, added the text and flipped the image. The project I’m working on needs the mirror image, now to get it printed tomorrow and begin the next step of the project.

So does that count as a craft? I sure hope so. 🙂

Oh yea this project has 12 images but only one has wording but all needed editing. Does it count??? 🙂
