Photoshop :: Blend Layers When Stitching Panoramas

Apr 28, 2013

When I make panoramas in Photoshop CS6 (after selecting and preparing individual images in LR4), I sometimes wish to modify Photoshop's automatic blending of layers.  An example is when a moving person is in two or more adjacent frames & I wish to use a version from a different frame than PS selects.  The layer masks are all either pure white or pure black, thus selecting the portions of each frame that is used, but with no gray portions for blending.  Opacity of all layers is 100%.  So, some other invisible-to-me mechanism is being used to seamlessly blend the layers.  When I try to select portions of a different frame (in areas of overlap) by painting white on a mask and black on layer masks above it in the stack, I can partially make visible the desired area but it appears as partially transparent & thus low contrast.  How can I get full control of what is included in the final composite?

Photoshop :: HowTo About Panoramas Stitching?

Mar 17, 2008

My understanding is that Panoramas Stitching (=>PaSt) feature is available with PhotoShop Elements (PE). I am not familiar with the PE product. Is PE a stand alone product or does it require PS?
Is PaSt available with PS (with which minimum ver.)?

I read here in the forums that there are various capacity problems with PaSt.
In that regard, and any other aspect, if PaSt is available with PS, what are the main differences using PS or PE with PaSt feature?

Illustrator :: White Artifacts / Stitching In Between Vector Layers?

Sep 3, 2013

I have an illustration I did and when exporting as a PDF I get these white stitch marks inbetween the layering. My steps previous to that were Object > Live paint, where I finalized colouring of my illustration. I'm guessing live paint probably made the layers space out a bit, but I wouldn't see why. The layers are fine when in Illustrator, it's only when I export it into PDF. I would have put a image up but the forum doesn't allow me to post PDFs for some reason.

Photoshop :: Blend Layers With Hidden Layers

Nov 27, 2007

I have 3 layers




the blending options are normal for TEXT and BG, but I have soft light for SHADOW. Now the BG layer actually contains an illustration which makes my shadow look realistic, however what Im trying to do is, save the picture with a transparent background with only TEXT and SHADOW showing, but as soon as I hide BG, the SHADOW layer will go back to the black color I drew and not look like a shadow. I tried merging text and shadow but either the TEXT gets soft light and gets ruined or SHADOW becomes normal and gets ruined. Its very late, ive been trying to figure it out for the past 4 hours so I hope I explained it clearly.

Photoshop :: Not Enough RAM To Auto Blend Layers?

Nov 29, 2008

I'm running Win Vista 32bit with 3gig of RAM. When trying to use the Auto-Blend feature of CS4 I get an error message that says Could not Auto-Blend the layers because there is not enough memory (RAM)." The only way I'm able to get this feature to work is if I reduce my image size to less than 1/4 of my original file size. I started with an image that was 4221 pixels wide, and I had to reduce it down to 1000 pixels before the blending feature wold work.

Does anyone know how much RAM this feature needs to work on a full size image? Is there anyway I can set up Vista to allocate more of my RAM to CS4? When I go under preferences > performance, it tells me that I have 1641mb of RAM available. Is there a way I can set this so more of my RAM is allocated to CS4?

Photoshop :: Blend Modes/Merging Layers!

Aug 22, 2008

I'm having a huge issue in designing my up and coming website.

I've numerous layers within my soon to be designed page - however, a few of these layers are set to different blend modes (Overlay, Screen and Lighten).

I need to ensure that these layers remain looking the way they do on my page when they're part of my flattened site, but it's just not working for me. When I flatten all layers, it looks as I want it - however I can't do that, as I will ultimately be using a tiled background layer, and the background layer I'm using now is only as a guide.

how I can merge down a ('Screen', for example) layer, without it losing its screen look?

Photoshop :: Adjustment Layers - Default Blend Mode

Oct 9, 2012

I'm using CS6 and wondered of there was a way to change the default blend mode of an adjustment layer?

For example, if you use the Curves adjustment, as well as increasing contrast it also increase saturation. I like to use the "Luminosity" blend mode so that I get the contrast without the saturation. By default, I'd like to be able to specify that any Curves layer I use should use Luminosity blend mode.

Photoshop :: How To Blend Layers To Simulate Real Light

Jun 14, 2013

I have two layers. One is completely red (r255,g0,b0). The other layer is completely green (r0,g255,b0).

How can I make it so that if I lower the opacity of the green layer (which is above the red layer), to 50% that the result is completely yellow (r255,g255,b0)?

I've tried all the blending options, none of them achieve this basic effect. The closest I got was something that looked like a darker orange.

Photoshop :: CS5 Freezes When Using Auto-Blend Layers - Stack Images

Mar 24, 2013

I used to have CS5 on my computer, after which I used the CS6 trial, and I never had any problems when stacking images using Auto-Blend Layers -> Stack Images. However, I recently purchased a subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud and after uninstalling the old PS versions and installing Cloud, Photoshop freezes every time I try to stack images.
My computer has very good specs, runs Windows 7, and both the OS and PS are up to date.

Photoshop :: How Can I Blend Similar Blue Colors Across Aligned Layers?

Oct 11, 2007

I've just used the align layers feature to stitch together 4 pics into a panorama view. It looks great except the sky is different shades of blue for each of the stiched elements.

Is there an easy way of somehow merging the different blues so you end up with a consistent blue across the panoramic view?

After Effects :: Merge / Blend 2 Layers To Move And Track Together?

Nov 8, 2013

I have an old man whose eyes are slitty and so I have created a white with a layer and feathered it round his wrinkles and it looks ok.  I can add mask track to this in ae and also track it in mocha. I have an iris import clip that I then need to add to the white.  It is in .png.

I cannot make a mask path appear on the layer information to the left of the screen so the iris dances about and can't be tracked.
How do I blend the white mask layer and the iris layer so they move as one?   Do I put them together then track them togethr in mocha?
I have spent a day on this trying to figure it.  On top of that I would also like to clone an eyelid half open so that I can put this on top of white layer, iris layer and then eyelid and track all together. But if possible the white and iris moving together would be enough.
In the instructions on youtube I have also found that when I hit 3d little cube icon I get a black background on the iris and not the old mans face how do I get rid of that?
This is for a man who gets wolf eyes in the film.  Would it be easier to get some wolf eyes in photoshop and stick those on? the clip is just 4 secs long.

Photoshop :: Shooting Panoramas

Aug 22, 2005

I am trying to shoot a panorama (6 - 7 photos) and merge the photos using Photoshop. Photoshop is doing a nice job of merging the scenes. However, the shade of the sky on each photo is a little different (the buildings and other objects look fine, or at least differences aren't perceptible) thus, I have distinct lines between each photo in the sky (or water) areas. How can I correct this in Photoshop (I'm a casual PS user, and I have PS CS2) so that all the sky (and water) areas look the same?

Photoshop :: Shooting Wider Vertically When Doing Panoramas

Jan 24, 2012

Shooting 'wider' vertically when doing panoramas and using the stitching in Photoshop CS5?

i.e. : if I shoot frames in panoramic and then do a slight tilt up pass and a slight tilt down pass, when I auto align the layers in stitching, will Photoshop have any clue as to what I'm trying to do? Does it is good for the software if I make a much larger canvas first to allow for that space?

I would like to open this file on computers that do not have Photoshop CS, CS2, CS3 loaded eliminating the .psb/Photoshop RAW and so far I have only been able to save the image as a corrupted .TIFF file, i.e. does not open properly.

Illustrator :: Using Blend Tool To Blend Colour Between Two Objects To See Anchor Points

May 2, 2013

When using the blend tool to blend colour between two objects is there a way to see the anchor points so I know where to click the blend tool.   I realise the cursor changes when over one but its seems very cumbersome to have to move it around until it changes rather than click directly on one which I could do if I could see it.

Illustrator :: Blend Tool Not Making Smooth Color Blend

Dec 4, 2013

I'm using Illustrator CC (on a Win7 Pro machine) at a beginner level, probably halfway to intermediate. I'm trying to learn how to blend colors together for highlights of various types (skin tones, clothing, light on objects, etc.) so that when I'm making a graphic for a project I'll have a decent idea of which tool/technique is best for the specific effect I need.
I'm trying to use the Smooth Color option in the blend tool. Late yesterday afternoon I recall creating two ellipses (one of which was a solid fill and one of which was a gradient going from black to transparent) and getting a smooth color transition between the two. It was a much harsher effect than I was looking for so I didn't keep it. This morning, while trying to replicate the same thing, I seem to be unable to use smooth color between two objects if one or more of them has a gradient applied. I only get what you see below, which is a step between the two objects.
I've done searches and found multiple references to blending gradients in this way and have followed those instructions (create the shapes, fill with the gradients, then either click on the Blend tool and click on the center of each shape, or click on Object -> Blend -> Make) but I can't seem to get a Smooth Color blend if either object has a gradient applied. Am I missing an important step somewhere? I'm 95% sure I accomplished it yesterday and nothing has been changed since then.

Illustrator :: How To Use Blend Tool To Blend Two Different Art Brushes With Different Colors

Jun 26, 2013

I am trying to blend two different art brushes with different colors using the blend tool.  I'm trying to use two fixed-size line segments of the same length and then applying the two different brushes to those segments ( each art brush is a different color).  Then I want to blend them the regular way so their colors transition.  However, when I do this, the first shape is a different color, but all subsequent blend steps are the color of the second blended shape.  Why is this? It doesn't blend the colors for some reason.

Paint Shop Pro :: Using Smart Carver On Panoramas?

Jan 5, 2012

I have a new virtual tour 360 business and I want to "perfect" my panos. After I stitch the four pictures together, I'm left with the tripod showing on the bottom of the pano. I want to delete the tripod, but don't know the best way to do this. I have been trying to do this with smart carver, but it seems to take a long time and not having the success I would like. I thought it might be easier if I took a picture of where the tripod was, minus the tripod and then merge the two pictures together. It needs to be perfect, because there might be an instance of a wood floor that needs to match up.
