Did you stretch that tiger horizontally to make your sig?
I guess so technically. I used the scale image feature and rescaled the source pic to 400x150. I thought I read somewhere that was the required size, correct? Playing around with the scaling tool I figured out what the chain-link button does regarding aspect ratio.
Well, either blend the tiger using a transparency gradient (very useful technique)
Started playing around with some of the other tools last night, specifically adjusting transparency, blur, and smudge to work on blending. So here is what I did in another thread late last night.
Trying to learn how to better blend those hard edges of various layers. Is there a way to "fade" in/out just the edges of a layer? For example the edge that is still somewhat visible of the layer that has the player and the background layer of the tiger. I wanted a gradual fade in or some type of gradient of that edge to make it appear seamless. Felt pretty good though last night after completing that image because I created 7 layers and became comfortable selecting between each, re-stacking, setting opacity, and scaling. One step at a time I suppose.
