Photoshop :: Filling A Shape

Nov 22, 2006

This is a basic question as I am a novice with both Illustrator and Photoshop. I have a vector shape of an apple in Illustrator. It is 2 piece- the body and the stem. I would like to fill this shape with a part of a photograph.

I'm wondering if I should do this in Illustrator or should move it over to Photoshop as a selection and then do it there? I'm also going to bevel the edges of the shape.

The next question is how to do it, which tool should I be using in either program? Is this considered a "fill" operation or am I cutting this shape out of the photo?

Photoshop :: Filling A Shape With Pattern

Nov 22, 2012

this is not a hard one, but it is hard for me to figure out. i would like to find out how to fill a shape with some patterns exactly like how it looks in the below picture. As you can see, the filled pattern pictures(those small hearts) are not overlayed and the sizes are random. And the edge of the shape(that's the big heart) is just smooth. how to do it?

Paint.NET :: Filling / Shading A Rasterized Shape

Feb 29, 2012

I have captured a GIS image from a government website that shows the boundary lines of real property parcels. I would like one of these parcels to be highlighted to make it easier to spot among all the others.

This particular GIS site appears to render the boundary lines in a rasterized (is that the right word?) format instead of a vectored format so instead of an actual smooth, continuous line I get a bunch of little one and two pixel segments that have diagonal gaps at their corners - this means that if I use the fill bucket tool I end up covering the entire image with the highlighting color and not just the one parcel.

I have attached a closeup of the jagged (rasterized?) line here in case the above wasn't clear.

Is there any hope of me being able to quickly and easily fill in the area that isn't completely enclosed at the pixel level?

GIMP :: Filling Line-drawn Shape With A Color

May 10, 2011

I have a cartoon line drawing. The black outlines are anti aliased so the edges of the lines have different grades of gray pixels on them. When I use the fill tool, and adjust the fill with the opacity and tolerance sliders, (I think that's what they're called in GIMP), I still can't get what I want. Only some of the gray pixels are colored in. Others are canceled out. Completely covered by the color, erasing some of the line.

Or some pixels remain uncolored. Just gray instead of a combination of the gray AND the fill color. What I'm looking for is an effect that looks like I placed a colored gel shaped like the cartoon character over the drawing. All the different shades of gray pixels should still be seen. Even the ones that are lighter than the fill color. With a gel, those pixels would appear darker, even though they were lighter than the fill color without the gel over them. The darkness of the color PLUS the added darkness of even the lightest gray pixels should make all the pixels appear darker. And the line would appear complete. Not partially erased.

Is it at all possible to get this effect?

Photoshop :: Unable To Scale Shape Layers Layer Mask Independent From Shape

Sep 25, 2012

In Photoshop CS6, when you have a shape layer with a layer mask, and the two are not linked together, and the layer mask is selected, you should be able to scale the layer mask independently of the shape. What actually happens is the shape gets scaled and the layer mask stays untouched. In fact, even if you option-click on the layer mask to show the mask by itself, and then try to scale it, you still end up scaling the shape instead of the mask. Even if you go as far as to make a pixel selection of the layer mask and attempt to scale the pixels, the shape still gets scaled and the layer mask still stays put! Unbelievable!
This works correctly in CS4, but not in CS6 (don't know about CS5).

Photoshop :: Filling With Patterns

Aug 3, 2006

I created a pattern of concrete block coursing that I want to apply to a picture of the side of a building. The pattern is clipped so that it will repeat appropriately when filled into a large area. The problem is that depending on where I fill in the canvas, the pattern never fills in with the same start point. I want it to always start at the bottom left corner of the pattern (which is the bottom left corner of a block). Is there a way to set the point that a pattern moves out from? Also, does the pattern radiate from its center point or one of the corners?

In Autocad there is a snapbase command that lets you choose the start point for a pattern. This is exactly what I'm looking for in photoshop.

Photoshop :: Live Shape Properties / Create A New Shape To Replace Old

Sep 18, 2013

Since the release of Photoshop CC the "Live Shape Properties" has basically chosen when it does and does not want to show up.... sometimes I even create a new shape to replace the old one and it STILL does not show the live shape properties... how hard is it to make sure the options are available at all times? I opt for a discount since this is a half working application and the features you highlighted barely function...

Photoshop :: Filling Paths With Color In CS4

Jan 29, 2013

I am working in Photoshop CS4...have been for years.  All of a sudden, when I try to fill a closed path with a color, it fills the entire art board with color, except not inside the path.  I have not selected "inverse" or anything....and it has never done this before....I can't figure out why it has started doing this, and I can't get it to stop.  Most of the paths in my file, I have made in Illustrator and  then pasted into Photoshop...they work is just the ones I actually draw in Photoshop that are doing thing I have noticed is that in the paths palette, the paths I pasted in from Illustrator have a grey background.....while the paths I actually drew in Photoshop have a white background.

Photoshop :: CS4 - Filling In Pre-printed Certificates?

Oct 8, 2012

I've used Photoshop CS4 for sometime but I'm no expert!A club I'm in has asked me to fill in pre-printed membership certificates with members names etc. The only way I can think of for doing this would be to scan the certificate and call it layer

1. Then fill in the new details and call it layer 2.I then remove layer 1 and layer 2 is in the correct position for inserting the certificate into the printer and printing on it.Of course this is just my theory, how to even try it!

Can I use Render>Clouds on the inside of a font only?

I want to leave the background untouched (if filled) or transparent.

I don't want to use the magic wand tool on the font, and then cut out shape from a clouds background. I need more detail than that would offer to get the effect.

Photoshop :: Filling In Partial Background

Jul 12, 2006

I am using photoshop for yesterday and it's black magic for me, so I ask you for a little favour. Namely, I owe a picture that needs new background, but just partial. Here's the link

As you can see there I am located between doors, that's good and I want them to leave untouched, but the point is to remove wall and stairs behind my back and switch it with sky, clouds texture (image). For example this one. I mean not to insert the whole background, just adequate part of it.
