Re: Remove shine from photo of oil painting

Den,

Now I have mastered the flat topped mask could you explain the logic behind finding the correct position and size of the top, please?

Thanks again.

Re: Remove shine from photo of oil painting

Thanks Den,

Took me a while to work out how to get that shape but, once I did, it worked fine.

Look after yourself.

Bye

Re: Remove shine from photo of oil painting

Can anyone be bothered to revisit this thread. I am trying Jonathan's method that uses the mask that is not saved until the overlap is applied. Reading my last post it seemed I did crack it once ages ago. Now I cannot get the overlap to make any difference to the mask I have applied. This is the pri...

Re: Can I produce a jpg with a transparent background?

Thanks Jonathan,

I've got what I need as a .png from GIMP.

This is an example of my new Juicebox web folders - with a GIMP watermark.

Re: Can I produce a jpg with a transparent background?

Wilfried. The crucial thing when you create a New Image is to go into the Advanced drop down and pick Transparent Background. After that it is far more intuitive and how you get back to Transparent if you opt for an ordinary (default) background I never puzzled out. As always Google/YouTube was the ...

Re: Can I produce a jpg with a transparent background?

Thanks Winfried,

I am stuck.

I have emailed the man who runs Juicebox, which the web builder I am trying to move to.

I'll see if he can help.

I have done what you suggest but probably one tick box is wrong !!

Re: Can I produce a jpg with a transparent background?

Gosh it's complicated if you have not used GIMP before. Do you have a URL with some instructions? What I have so far is my PWP jpg with my text in colour against a white background. I need to turn the white to transparent and save as a PNG. I read about Alpha channels but am still in the dark. Tony

Re: Can I produce a jpg with a transparent background?

Thanks Winfried.

I'll use GIMP.

I was having a fiddle with Mask as I guessed those were transparent - but with no success so far.

Can I produce a jpg with a transparent background?

I need one to put some text into a web published image. The system I am using creates watermarks by using jpgs of text but they need the background to be transparent rather than white. The jpg I have offered shows the text with a white background. I think there are third party programs that will mak...
