This is one more video tutorial I an posting in order to try and explain one way to create a snapshot effect of an image using elements from within the image its self.

I once again need to apologize for the large file size but I have squeezed this thing down about as far as I can and still have a movie that can be viewed.

Since this was a question asked in the forums I may move this video to my scraps as I often do with such request.

I would like to thank ~amyestock for the use of her image girl41

I have them but not on the copies uploaded to DA. My recorder makes the play pause and stop buttons as a separate SWF that are linked through and HTML doc.

DA only allows one file to be uploaded per slot and that would take 4 to get the buttons to work

Man, real inspiring, I'm gonna get back to PS now... I'm thinking of going into Graphics like you, do you got any advice?
Reply
:iconbarrykiddphotography:
Thank you for the comment and i am glad that you enjoyed the silly little movie.

As to graphics. I love the work but sadly the only advice I have it that it isn't what it once was. Desktop printing has changed it forever. That however is another story for another time.

How do I download this tut? I clicked the "Download to Desktop" link and all I got was the snapshot.
Reply
:iconbarrykiddphotography:
By DA's default settings .swf files do not download to your hard drive when you click the download link they will open up in your browser window.

You can play the movie that way or you can simply click on the preview image to view it at the best screen resolution.

You find that you need want to download it to you hard drive instead you can right click on the download button and choose save target as for IE or save link as for firefox.

There browsers also have corresponding commands.

This is a great tutorial, i would really like to try this on a loved one when i have the time. Although you did go a bit fast, im sure if i watch it a few times i can get it ;) To bad there are no controls to pause the video or rewind it. Thanks again!

I have just emailled the controles to your Yahoo.

hi!! can i ask a question why cant i downlaod your snapshot video and masking part 8 tutorial?
Reply
:iconbarrykiddphotography:
I can't say. Perhaps there is a glitch in the system. It happens from time to time and all .swf files on DA get messed up. Sometimes it sorts out in a few hours and sometimes a few days :(

would u guess that i didn't know how to transform selections? ... :lmao:

This would make a neat effect wouldn’t it? Just create the effect and leave the background transparent and save as a .png. Yes that would be very nice I think.

Sadly I guess I am in the same boat that you are in. Even under the best circumstances I tend to look like a hardened serial killer when a camera is close by.

Freaking great tut buddy. I have never been dissapointed with your tutorials. Great work.

Biggest thing I learned: Dragging a layer style from 1 layer to another applies the exact same effect.

You don't know how many times I kept writing down drop shadow settings. A small notepad has become part of my design desktop because of it!

Second Biggest thing I learned: Adding a new layer doesnt screw up the border when applying a stroke.

Thanks a million.

Thank you and I am glad that you liked it.

As I read you statement about coping layer stiles I couldn’t think that perhaps you would be interested in knowing there is another way to do that as well.

If for example you have many layers that you wish to effect you can do so in one hit. I have found this very useful when building a web template. Since a complex web may have 2 or 3 hundred layers and you wish to change a single effect that is spread out all over the place you can simply right click on the layer in the layers pallet. Then go down to Copy Layer Style.

Once you have your layer style copied to your clip board you have two options. You activate another layer and right click once more and Paste Layer Style to get the same effect where dragging across a very large spread of layers will not be feasible or you can link 5, 10 or 20 layers the right click on a layer and choose Paste Layer Style to Linked.

This will apply the same style (now on your clipboard) to all linked layers weather it is 2 or 50.

Just thought you may find that bit of information handy.

Any way you have a great day and I do love you vectors. You should pass some of that talent my way :)

Barry
