This is very nice!!!
You are the master framer!!!! Love all of this.... I may have added more shadowing to the dark sideo of the figure...and LOVE the mosica backdrop! How did you do it?

The mosaic and the framing are absolutely amazing Pantel. Phew, in your version she is safe from any danger coming for that tunnel hehe. I am sure she is relieved in a way ;-). She looks like a real drama queen haha, love the treatment of color too. Can you share the mosaic technique Monroe asked about? Not that I will master any time soon hehe but I would like to read the explanation and maybe one day ...

I can't speak for Pan as I don't know specifically if he did this, but you can achieve the same effect in photoshop by going into Filter>stylize>tiles then playing around with the settings ;)

Great take on it though Pan :)

LOL, Ji...this ain't fancy...haha,just basic stuff I'm still trying to learn....and BBeau is right, it's filters>stylize>tiles, Except I did it with Photofiltre :-D

..and Antonella, I'm just learning too, so you should have no problems doing stuff like this with some practice :-D...if anyone is interested in Photofiltre, which is a real basic and easy photo editing program, and great for beginners, like I am, it's free, and you can get it here:

Nearly all my pics have been done using this :-D

...and here are my steps for this shot ( or as close as I remember, cause I'm mostly doing and undoing, till things look good to my eye ):

1.outline the avi using the poligon tool,then inverting .
2.filter >stylize> BBeau so rightly guessed
3.while I had the avi still outlined, I re-inverted, and made some minor corrections to color,hue ,brightness,etc,on the avi.
4.I threw a black gradient fade from left to right, then right to left, to darken the sides a little.
5.then, again using the poligon tool, I ruled the inside border, and then just played with contrast, saturation and so forth,which gives it that different tone, and separates it making it look like a frame...while here,I also tried a slight dark gradient, and it loked ok, so I left it in
6.Then just a basic black outside frame, a change to the canvas size to make the frame taller down bottom...and all done.

I hope this made sense, 'cause it's the first time I've written something like this was easy with this, because there were few steps,and I can see them, with other stuff though, there are so many steps,and do's and undo's, that I could never possibly remember....and most of my stuff comes about by trial and error.

So, if you have any technical questions...I'm the wrong guy...ROFL

ty for the reference and all the info on how you did it Pante ... I was all ready to try it 2 secs ago, got ready, clicked on your link and what did I find????? it's not for Macs :-(((((( and I am a Macintosher (disclaimer: no idea if that word even exists in English) so ... any suggestions on any other wonderful software for beginners using Macs?????

View antonella's home antonella | 13 year(s) ago

Oh, sorry, Antonella...can't help with that one...:-((
Any Macintoshers out there listening ??

Actually, I think Gimp is compatible and free....but it's kinda complicated for me :-(
