Desperately need some guidance here as this has been driving me nuts....
I want to use the colour and texture from one photo onto my own design. Now, using the rubber stamp tool I am able only to clone a certain area that moves with the cross hair, but how can I clone a section from one photo and use that as a fill to create another design? In other words, clone a colour from one photo as a colour fill for another design?
Even using the colour replace tool and selecting source: image I am left with the colour pallette as the destination and cannot use the colour from the image to paint my new image from it.
Thanks a heap
If I want to copy a single color from one image to another, here's what I'll do:
(A layer with rectangles of different colors is sometimes handy for setting up a color scheme and using it consistently.)
You can also create bitmap patterns to use as fills for vector objects. Fireworks comes with quite a few, but it's easy to add your own. Here are a couple of tutorials
