Trying to FADE

Postby chaitereye » Thu Sep 12, 2002 9:50 am

I am trying to do something simple like fade an image to use as background stationery to write on. Is there a filter for that or can I do it easily in photoshop? Nobody I asked seems to know. Thanx in advance for your help!

To "fade" an image in Photoshop double click it in the Layers palette to turn it into a layer. Then turn the Transparency in the Layers palette to something between 10% and 50%.

If you want to fade it to a special color, create a new layer and fill it with your desired color. Finally drag it beneath the image layer in the Layers palette.

I am a total amateur at PhotoShop and found an easy way to do this Open your original image. Open a new image the same size. Using the paint bucket tool, select the original image as the flood fill and set the opacity to a low setting. Experiment until yoou have the desired shade.

Most image editors will allow you to adjust the 'gamma' - just set the gamme to 1,5 or higher.

Several way...here are a few:

Adjust saturation - Image>>>Adjsut Hue Saturation

Bring Up Curves - Image>>>Adjust Curves

New Adjustment Layer - Layer>>>New Adjustment Layer - Choose Hue/Saturation or Curves

Duplicate the layer - delete the background - Leave white or fill with color - select the layer you created when you duplicated - Use the multiply blend mode to blend into the background

The thing with Photoshop is that there are countelss ways of acheiving something.

Simplicity is Best

Why complicate things? Go to Image>Adjustments>Hue/Saturation>Lightness. Lighten accordingly & get a great & easy fade effect.
