I am trying to create a rubber stamp effect over a jpg by using the following steps:
When I Live Trace the below image "A" it doesn't look like the original and changes into image "B".
Also, I cannot seem to extract the white from the picture after I have Live Traced it?
Can anyone help?
I used Live Trace>Default as this was what the tutorial instructed me to do, and they got the desired effect with it..
I tried all the other options and non of them seem to provide the desired trace, keeping the original jpg image/texture intact?
I don't know what either of these meathods are or what effect they give. Please can you explain?
The result I am looking for is to make a logo jpg look grainy & aged so it looks like it has been applied to the canvas using a rubber stamp.
Will either of your options produce this result?
Oh I looked at the tutorial and you might notice that you use his screenshot to do the live trace and the the poster used a high resolution image file that is the difference.
You need to do as the op probably dis is shoot something that will be useful as a mask and use that but it has to be of sufficien resolution.
Thanks wade.. sorry for my late reply.
I did try and shoot some appropriate masks to apply but couldnt quite find the right texture.
Is there a next best option you could propose using the screenshot of the wall texture in the tutorial?
I am not too familiar with masks yet..
Hi Wade.. so just to get this straight..
A masking image HAS to be of a certain resolution for the Live Trace tool to be able to detect its features and vectorize it? And once its vectorized is the only time I can then use the Majic Wand tool to select & delete all the white areas?
