hmmm wow alright then, the only things I know how to do in photoshop is change opacity of things, cut things out, use the clone stamp, the blur tool, color adjust. but I guess if you are good enough with those then you should be able to do photo manips, I just need to do more i guess Hopefully my class on photoshopping in school helps too
Well, that's pretty much all I know how to do. I also use the burn and dodge tools a lot. Which photoshop program do you have? Basically what I deal with most often in making a manip is selecting a certain thing. I work with the selection tool very specifically and carefully around the edges, then I refine it to look softer. A class would probably be a lot of help.
Oh yea I forgot about those tools too, I can use those too xD I dont have photoshop, so I use GIMP which isnt as good at all, but I will be getting photoshop soon (along with Final Cut pro and Motion for my video editing) How long does it usually take you to do a photomanip?
Awesome! Those tools are your friends, right along with the razors. XD Oh, well there's the problem. You can't make what you want to make without the right sort of thing to make it with. Which are you thinking of getting? A few hours, usually. If I'm working with a base in photoshop, it takes twice as long than with screencaps and such.
