To erase you take this tool and then you work with the brush (black/white).
Posted 10 July 2005 - 03:42 AM
Then you see on the right corner a new layer.
Open now the background image and the pic you want to erase. Then drag and drop them in the new project.
Now the pics don`t fit to the screen (wall size), so you push Strg (think in english it`s Ctrl) + T. But at first you have to activate the layer you want to resize. Then you push the Shift-Button and hold it until you are finished the resize and click and hold the mouse-button on a corner of the pic and move it then.
Ok know the size an positions are you, we can start with the work
The layer with the pic you want to erase must be always on top
Choose this, then push the button in the pic (don`t know the name) then a second "window" will be create on the layer. Click on this to activate it.
Then take the brush-tool
With black you erase
and with white you un-erase it
That`s it. Work always with layers and be sure you have the layer activated with you want to work. For example if you want to colore something, then create a new layer and color then the thing, then you never will "destroy" the original pic.
When I`m working on a pic then I press F then F again and then Tab, then you have only the pic Play with F, Tab and Shift + Tab. With Ctrl + + and Ctrl + - you can zoom.
Hope I could help you and sry for the english and mistakes.

As for the first one, I'll throw together a quick tutorial for you since I don't know how to explain it. I use PS 7 though, just in warning. So if Acro can do it or someone else with CS, then that might be easier for you to understand.

So your layers pallette will now look like this:
Next, desaturate the 'copy 1' layer by going to Image > Adjustments > Desaturate (CTRL > SHIFT > U). Select the 'copy 2' layer, and select your eraser tool (E) and erase EVERYTHING but her shirt using small brushes for near her body.
You end up with something like this:
After you're finished erasing the 'copy 2' layer, select the 'copy 1' layer and go up to ADJUSTMENTS again. Select "Brightness and Contrast" and slide both little arrows up to 40. Then select the smudge tool at 10% opacity (to get the 'smooth plastic' look to her skin) and slowly blend the skin on her face, arms, etc, avoiding places like her eyes and lips. At the end of all that, you get this:
Next, set the 'copy 2' layer (the one that we erased everything but the shirt on) and set the layer to HARD LIGHT.
If you want to make the shirt a little darker, create a layer between the b&w layer and the shirt layer and paint the area beneath her top with black and duplicate the layer you set to HARD LIGHT and up the contrast to 40.
Here's what the layer pallette looks like:

thanx a lot avadakedavra and maddog107 it worked but do u know how to do the other one
He already answered "the other one"
"The second one is a lot like what Acro described, they just took a bunch of images, erased parts of them and lowered the opacity on the layers the images were on."
