Adobe PhotoShop Alpha Channels

Postby DR.EVIL~TAG » 07-03-2005 08:34 AM

Theres alot of sites out there that may have tuts on them for this, I found none of them really useful so i did alot of guess work from PSP to Adobe. I took pics of every step which may be more useful then just a bunch of typed words.


Based on Adobe Photoshop 6.0

This will be as simple as i can make it.

Step:1 Select an image you want to make transparent. I have chosen a plant with no background at all. Maybe a bit to simple.
Image

Step:2Set up your window to show the CHANNEL window as well.
Image
This window should now be showing .
Image

Step:3 Now select the wand and select the parts of the image you DO NOT want transparent. Change the tolerance to your likings as you go. The selection should start to show a dotted out line around the parts.
Image


Step:4 Now goto the CHANNEL window and select the CREATE NEW CHANNEL ,as seen marked with an arrow, You should now see a new black image appear with your selection in the background outlined
Image
Image shown in black channel
Image

Step:5 Next goto IMAGE menu and choose INVERT.

Glad it helped ya out in a different way.

As with all tuts out there online there is many ways to do certain things. Some i find to complicated when they could be made so easy, Some do not have enough pictures with the steps (I like pictures lol).

Some are just plain ..........well ummm just plain lol. Anyhow i'll be posting more later on using max7 and such with full pics.

I've been into this game lately (second life)... and ran across this video for CS2. The movie is here. Not that this is as good, but whatever works for you.
