Wenchie, that's a good idea for photoshop but I am guessing she meant also the render in whatever 3D software one uses, not just the postwork or am I missing something here??? :thud:

Just the postwork hun you don't need to note down the steps in your render program :)

Hi all,

yup Mel I am the same way with them darn sparklies and shineys...lol

There are many places that give great tuts for photoshop and I have tried manytimes to do the tut for masking but maybe I just try to hard cause I may have missed a step...but I will.

I did this logo with mask but have since found a different way and still get pretty much the same effect...the ripples edge.
Fear not,

I am there to comfort and guide you...
Always.

Loverly logo!!!

I'm just trying to figure out why your mask no longer works... as I said, there's several ways to use the masking tool in Photoshop... but it also depends on the version you have.  I'm not so sure about tool locations in PS7... It was a huge shock to me and having to relearn a LOT when I jumped from CS to CS4... I only dimly recall using PS7 LOL.  I believe at that point in my learning, I didn't know about masks - or how to use them.  Now, I can't live without them!

thanks kitty...I don't think it is the program that doesn't want to let me mask but tis more operator problem...I can at times be very dyslexic and may have done some step backwards...but I have gone about doing that wavy thing a different way.

LOL, DA... Masks are tricky things... but once you get a handle on them, they can be your best friend.  Instead of say, erasing parts, you simply mask them out - then, later on, if you decide you want pieces back that you once would have erased, its a simple matter of repainting the mask.  I still get the masking "backwards" on occasion... I can never remember if the "black" blocks it out or the "white" does... I have discovered that it's pretty simple if you get it backwards to control-click on the mask (in layers - IF you did a layer mask) to make it a selection, invert the selection, delete the original mask (without applying it) and create a new layer mask - the selection will automatically create the mask when you click on the button.  If you do a "whole image" mask (using the mask button that for me is at the bottom of my tools pallet), its a slightly different ballgame - click once to go into Mask Mode and paint your stuff.  Then, when you click on it AGAIN after painting your "mask", everything comes up as a selection automatically - it's then a simple matter of determining if that selected area is what you want or not - and use the inverse selection if need be.

Now, if you want to know about the pen tool, paths, etc... please don't come to me.  I'm still tangled in knots over that stuff!

BUT, i did discover something neat yesterday... turning things into "smart objects" so when you resize, etc - you don't lose quality!!!!
