Put Your Avatar / Desired Picture on the right of my Avatar.


My Avatar > Yours > His > Hers > Theirs > Chris Menning’s

Everyone will have their avatar on the white sheet as if it were a family photo.

Let’s see where this goes.

First, open the family photo and your avatar into photoshoop.

Then select the magnetic lasso tool.

Use it to trace the outside of your avatar. Once you are done, right click and select layer via cut.

Now you will have two layers- background and layer 1. layer 1 is your cut out avatar.

Now drag the layer onto the family photo. You will have this.

To move your avatar, use the move tool.

To position your avatar behind or in front of others, first use the magnetic lasso tool to cut out what you want to be behind. Make it a new layer just like before. Then drag the layer on top of your avatar layer.


EDIT: I added chris because i accedentily deleted the photos from flickr

I know I’m very new, but here’s my avatar if someone can place it for me. (I don’t have photobucket)

The blue boo in the center is me, and to the sides are my pokemon. :-P

I’m sorry it’s a little large.

PS: It was made with Macromedia Flash

1. The image for background shrunk from its original size. Bad. Bigger BG, more room for peeps. Don’t wanna sound ungrateful, but starting over with the same BG, but keeping the size the same as you add folks could allow more to be added. OH WAIT I MIGHT DO THAT. EDIT: Damnit, i read threads, and I still miss things. I admit RG beat me to the size-punch

2. For the record, all of those who don’t use Photobuket or Flickr, use the KYM dashboard.

3. What picture editors are you all using? Adobe PS CS4 over here.

4. OhGodNumbersNumbersNumbers

5. I read the mini-guide about shopping people in. Layering would erase the need to cut out parts to give the effect of standing behind.

Now make I picture pretty and accepting within used the Photoshop. brb

EDIT: Changed my mind, don’t got the time.
