I have been trying to remove text from photograph but unsuccessfully using the Magic Eraser. I have a photo of my nephew with the text over the image, I am not about infringe copyright but using the image as an exercise. I will not be printing the image. I wondered whether others had success in suing the tool as the videos displaying the tool all seem to generate unbelievable results. Is it just the various grey tones on my nephew's pullover that make it too difficult perhaps?
I scaned an iron on pattern. Now I want to remove the background color which is white. I thought I could use the magic eraser tool. It does a good job for most of the project, but I have to click on every small area. The reason that I want to do this is to being able to print on any color card stock. Is there another way of doing this.
Up in the Xara Xone a discussion cropped up that started us talking about the eraser tool. So I thought I'd get a thread going here where everyone can share tips and tricks regarding the eraser and the shape builder as well
The eraser tool is available in Designer Pro X, and Photo & Graphic Designer 2013 And the Shapebuilder is available in Designer Pro X
To start things off here are a couple of handy tips:
You can force the eraser to produce an opacity mask and non destructively edit vector shapes in two ways. 1. set some softness or 2. group your vector object with it's self.
You can use the H key to toggle the node view on and off . If you have Designer Pro X the shift key toggles between the shape builder and eraser tool for handy editing.
Clarify the use of Magic Erase - I am using Photo & Graphic Designer 2013.When I try to replace an area with another of the same photo it does not work properly with PNG but seems to work almost 90% good with BMP.It looks like the colour is not correct with PNG even thou the Feather = None.
Does this means that Magic Erase should be done with another format than PNG? If there is possible that Magic Erase will not copy the source area colour 100% on any format even if the Feather = None?
I have 2 layers, the first is the background layer. Then 2nd layer has a picutre that I have used the ellipse tool on. My question is how can I use the eraser tool on everything outside of the ellipse tool? I can only use it inside.
I've selected my image from the BG, and it looks ok, but there are some parts that have been taken out, "along the edges" that I'll like to have as part of my image? is there a way to restore the "lost specks" using any of the tools?
I'm new and with a script that using Magic Wand Tool (tolerance 255, anti alias , contiguous) click at middle center every image. My images are transparent with many objects in each and I just want to choose the middle_center object and eliminate the others, so i need this scripts.
I used the Magic Wand to select the white area then inverted the selection to select the bodies.The result is in the attachment. BUT parts of the shirt and the paper are not selected. How do I select them? Do I need to use the Lasso Tool after the Magic Wand?
Every time I use the magic wand tool, Photoshop CS crashes. I tried resetting the program but it didn't work. I cannot find a patch for this anywhere. Its making photo editing very difficult! Is there a patch I can download anywhere?
I am curious about the math for the Magic Wand Tool in the following circumstance:
The RGB image has been converted to GREYSCALE and then into LAB mode. The lightness channel is selected only and I wish to create various selections with MAGIC WAND TOOL based on numerical values entered in the field TOLERANCE.
The image (as described above) shows values in PERCENTACE for K (Black) when in LAB mode. Now how does the value of TOLERANCE correspond to the value K: for this case?
trying to learn and use selections... I have a image from which I want to extract only the complete faces of some people. it's a tough one since the background and the hair are difficult to distinguish for some people even when using the magic wand. What I am trying is (while using the magic wand tool) is that I click on part of the image and if feels that the selection is correct then i do a right click and then select "Add to selection"...
Question: Once I have done so a couple of times, can I somehow display/show the intersection (SUM) of all the areas that I had added as selection and then either copy/paste or do somethiing.
I'm an illustrator... working in both digital & real artwork.
I work mostly in Photoshop CS, but I have been searching for a solution to a digital problem that I can't quite seem to find using either Photoshop or Illustrator.
What I wish to do is scan a pencil drawing and then create selected shapes in a quick and easy method using a magic wand tool.
But it needs to be a magic wand tool that will select an area drawn from a series of broken lines. Photoshop will only select shapes that are 100% intact, so I wind up having to spend lots of time searching to repair broken lines before Photoshop selects just that one area.
I KNOW that such a program exists... because I recall there used to be such a program.
It was a free dowloaded program that I got once, way back around 1998. I think it came from Australia... and it was a basic digital paint program of some sort. I can't recall the name.
It allowed one to quickly click and select an area from within a shape drawn with broken line segments...
Does anyone know of any program (hopefully for Mac) that allow this sort of selection?
This would save me hours of frustration. I can't believe Adobe hasn't come up with something like this already.
When I open Photoshop, no matter what tool I select, it seems to be stuck on the 'Eraser Tool'. For example, I can seemingly select the pointer or marquee tool ok, but when I tried to do something on the art board, it's as if the eraser tool is selected.
Deleting Preferences didn't work. Reinstalling Photoshop didn't work. Photoshop CS6 on Windows 7
My eraser tool is acting strange.Whatever pattern I erase, the tool turns it into an entire rectangular area as soon as I take my finger off the mouse. For example, if I draw an 'S' shape, it measures from the farthest corners and just erases the entire area in a neat rectangulare shape .
I often use the background eraser tool, however, I have opened two images of layouts which are on a white background and for the first time, none of the eraser tools will work at all. By selecting them they do not erase anything.
Not sure why this is happening, but every time I go to using the magic wand tool, it isn't allowing me to select everything. A big square is left behind. There's only one layer that I'm trying to work with. I feel like I accidentally pressed something on the keyboard, but not sure what is going on...
