Go again on this one, I want to understand it but it's not making sense in my head.
oh I really am learning a lot of new tricks ... deftly we will need to move this thread into the learning pad after NSD is done!
This is the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bart loves all the tips.
Kiss! Totally stalking Bart this morning!
@Dalis What this does is prevent your color brushing to go outside the lines of your element. So if you lock the layer by clicking on that box beside "lock" (you'll see the locked icon showing now in your element layer). I do this often for an outline stamp. I will choose a brush, click on the foreground color box and pick a color, then brush across the element, then I will choose another color, usually a lighter or darker shade in the same color family, and then randomly brush a few bits here and there. This works well for foliage/greenery. Does this make sense now?
Good morning, everyone. Hope you are having fun. Click on "watch thread" at the top right to be able to easily refer back to this thread in the future.
Foreground/background box, press "x" to toggle the foreground/background back and forth and to return to the default white/black foreground colors, press "d" to return to the default b/w colors.
after I lock the element, I can't do anything. I try to use the brush on the locked layer and it gives me an error that I can't do anything because the layer is locked.
@Dalis Here's a screenshot of what my layers palette looks like after I've locked the element layer. The bottom leaf is what happens if you choose a brush and just try to paint over element. The top one is with the layer locked and then when you brush a color(s) overtop it stays within the boundary of the element.
Some layers need to be rasterized before doing this. Right click on your layer and choose "rasterize layer", if greyed out then it doesn't need to be rasterized.
THANKS SO MUCH! I hadn't rasterized my element so the only lock that I was able to do was the one w/ the padlock the last one. I never even noticed the other LOCKS! I thought they were something else. OMG... something new to play with!!!! WOW! Ok, have you used this lately so I can see an example in a page? YOu are da' bomb RAE!
@Dalis I use this so much that I can't think of when I did or didn't use this....but ways I have used it include:
low opacity color darkening part of an element, using the same color just a shade or two darker.
using a splatter brush, low opacity, stamp over foliage, flower petals, etc to create a bit of color variation.
tags, I'll pick a neutral brown/grey to stamp along an edge.
Bart thinks you are all so smart,
Carol, Your signature is gorgeous!
The same thing will work by choosing Control or command and thumbnail of layer in layer pallet.. then whenyour marching ants are active adding s layer in top and painting will only paint or mask or erase etc in the selected area
I knew this one, but what's fascinating to me it's that I never gave any importance to that little "lock menu". Now, I am intrigued!
Golly, I'm getting the best information here
hope someone, sums this up for future reference
Oh going to try this (if works in PSE).
