As mentioned above, on Picmonkey (free online software just for playing around) you can "frost" a photo which I personally like the effect but need to know how to do this in PSE9. PicMonkey is just for playing around as I can upload a 10mb photo and am lucky if it saves as 2mb. I want to learn how to do this in PSE9 so that my 10mb files are still about 10mb files so that I can blow up to poster size. I have searched the net via "googling" and can not find a thing. If you have any idea how to do this, please let me know. Would be very grateful!
If you are not sure what I am on about, go to www.picmonkey.com and just hit edit a photo...you do not have to have acct. or give any info, just upload any photo you want and under edits there is one called "frost" and that is what I need PSE9 to do
Thanks for the example. It's very straightforward to do in PSE, and you have a lot of control over how the effect is created at each stage of the procedure.
Here's the original:
The layers look like this:
The final result:
Thank you!!! Now I can get the same look while maintaing hi-res images for larger size print jobs!
As always, you have my answers
Can't wait to try this later tonight after the little man goes to bed
I guess with the the selection size depends on what my main part of the image is....this is the one that I just did with your handy dandy instructions while the wee one was having a bath! And now I can actually do these for customers as the file size remains in tact unlike that silly monkey I have played with
