Photoshop 6? 2001?

Apr 9, 2013 10:57 AM

Tags: #photoshop #adobe #6 #general

My office has Adobe Photoshop 6, circa 2001, and I need help. I have four images that I am trying to blend together; one of which will be the background and the other three cut out and placed into the image. I usually will look up a quick tutorial when dealing with a new program but I can't seem to find anything online for this old school version of PhotoShop.  Does anyone have a link for old tutorials? Or know how to do this?

    Assuming it has layers like modern versions convert the background to a layer then with each of the 3 other images make a selection and cut and paste them.

    Even with a version of Photoshop 7 major versions out of date what you want to do will be substantially the same as what's done today, pasting images into layers and possibly using the eraser and/or layer masks.  Seek out something along the lines of "combine images in layers photoshop tutorial".

    You can resize with Ctrl T, or if that does not work edit/transform.

     

    If it freezes it may be a computor memory problem.

    Why do you want to "send images to the background"?  Leave them each in their own layer so they can be manipulated separately.

     

    The Edit - Free Transform tool will allow you to resize layer content.

    The selection process is very loose.  A tighter selection and refine edge would have helped.

     

    Now one way is to select the layer you want, enlarge image and carefully use the eraser tool around the whole image.  A hard brush will leave a sharp edge, so use a softer brush and it will also erase a little of the pixels in the image give it some blending.  Experiment as too soft a brush will eat too much into the figures.

    To add to what Curt has said, work at a zoomed-in resolution for finer control.

     

    There's no Refine Edge feature in Photsohop 6.0, by the way.

    If Photoshop 6 has them, I'd use layer masks to remove the unwanted background,  because it's non-distructive, so it's easier to fix mistakes.
