About the Image(s)

Here is a very simple example of using a black and white image with the one purple bud erased.....process is to make a black and white copy, save it....then open the original colored copy....both images MUST be the same size....make sure they are or the technique won't work....move the black and white copy onto the colored image and use the erase tool found on the left side, to erase the one bud....then go to layer at the top and go all the way down to MERGE on it and both images will become ONE!!!

When I saw the small thumbnail, I was expecting to see another beautiful creative shoe. There's a challenge for you.

I like this a lot ant will try to use the process in a variety of ways. Straight shots seem to get boring, no matter how beautiful the flowers are.   Posted: 09/06/2021 13:59:19

We can really concentrate on the purple bud now and the diagonal makes a strong composition.   Posted: 09/10/2021 09:18:57

Interesting technique and I will have to try it. I love purple so of course it drew my attention but something is throwing me off in this image. I am not sure if it is due to such an extreme contrast or the fact that nothing appears to be sharp. I do like the concept.   Posted: 09/10/2021 12:27:20
