So I'm trying to create my own 'Do it for her edit', using pictures of a character from a cartoon I like. I don't necessarily need someone to do it for me (although I could certainly provide all the pictures necessary), just some assistance in layering them, for example.
Yes, I know it's autistic.
It's supposed to be for Jenny from My Life as a Teenage Robot. I got five hundred pictures, so that's not an issue.
Someone made this version, but I find it lacking and has a poor choice in pictures. Just need help in placing pictures behind others.
The ones circled are the ones I am trying to change.
Here are some of the pictures I was thinking of using. Doesn't really matter which ones or where they go; as long as the circled ones are replaced.
Honestly, I expect nothing to come of this thread, but hopefully somebody will have sympathy for my aspergers.
This is easily done in pixlr, plus you get it just the way you want it.
Shit, Gimp is even easier, eh?
I really shouldn't be so lazy. People help those who help themselves, I just kind of didn't know where to start (preserving the tape on the corners seems actually impossible) and am always impressed by the speed and quality of some edits.
I'll put some effort into it, and if someone willing does stop by, I can always just use theirs if it is better.
Keep the template on top.
Import images, usually one at a time, under the template layer and places and scale them where you think they'd look best.
If you want them to be cropped so they aren't peeking to other holes:
>Select the Fuzzy Tool (Wand Tool) and raise the threshold (I found that 160 works)
>Select the template layer and click in the picture space you want the picture to be cropped to
>Now select the picture layer you want cropped, keeping the selection alive
>Right click in the selected area and got to "Layer>Crop To Selection"
>Picture should be cropped to fit the picture area
>Deselect by pressing Control+Shift+A
Hope this helps a little
Also, instead of Cropping To Selection, try inverting the selection by pressing Control+I and then pressing Delete.
If the image doesn't have an Alpha Channel (not a .png)
>Select the image layer
>Right click on the image and go to "Layer>Transparency>Add Alpha Channel"
>Now there should be transparent when you delete or erase a part of the image, instead of white/background color.
