In this lesson you will learn how to make your body transparent.
Step 1. Open the image with which you will work (it will be more convenient if the background is black).
Create a duplicate Ctrl+J and make the background layer invisible.
Step 2. Open the second image (which you will use as the background) and place it under the duplicate layer. Make it invisible.
Step 3. Use the tool “Magic wand“ (Magic Wand Tool) to highlight the background on the top layer and delete it (Delete). Invert selection Select \ Invert (Shift+Ctrl+I).
Do not deselect.
Step 4. With active selection, add a layer mask..
Step 5. Click Shift+cry on the mask thumbnail (disable the mask).
Step 6. Now is an important point! Click on the layer thumbnail and on the palette “Story” (History) the icon “Defines the source for the archive brush” move as in the screenshot.
Press Shift+Ffive. The “Fill” (Fill) or Editing \ Run Fill (Edit \ Fill). Select in “Use” (Use) Story (History), press ok (to return the image to the original background).
Step 7. Open the palette Channels (Channles), make active Blue (blue) and drag it to the icon “Creating a new channel“
Step 8. Staying on the new channel, go to the menu Image \ Correction \ Curves (Image \ Adjustments \ Curves) or (Ctrl + M). In the command dialog box, the channel “Blue (copy) “And set the values below:
Values for point “2”: Output (Output): 176, Input (Input): 89
Values for point “3”: Output (Output): 69, Input (Input): 187
should be like this:
Step 9. Now we will create another channel using the command Calculations (Calculations) – Image \ Calculations (Image / Calculations), set the following values:
Source 1 (Source 1):
Layer (Layer) – United (Marged)
Channel (Channel) – Red (Red), put a tick Invert (Invert)
Source 2 (Source 2):
Layer (Layer) – Background (copy) (Background copy)
Channel (Channel) – Red (Red), Inversion – no
Blending – Replace with Dark (Darker Color)
Opacity – 100%
Mask (Mask …) – tick
Layer (Layer) – Merged
Channel (Channel) – Transparency (Transparency), Inversions – no
Result (Result) – New Channel (New Channel)
Step 10. For the new channel, apply the following values for the command Curves (Curves) (Ctrl + M):
Values for point “1”: Output (Output): 0, Input (Input): 9
Values for point “2”: Output (Output): 255, Input (Input): 115
It should turn out like this:
Step 11. Back to the palette Layers (layer), being on the top layer, duplicate it (Ctrl+J). Make visible the layer with the second background image (which was added at the beginning of the lesson).
This is where the fun begins.
Step 12. For the top layer, use the command Hue \ saturation (Hue \ Saturation (Ctrl + U):
Saturation: – 21
Step 13. Apply the filter “Chrome” in the menu Filter\Sketch\Chromium (Filter \ Sketch \ Chrome)
Step 14. Weaken the effect of chromium: Editing \ Loosen: Chrome…
Step 15. Image – Correction – Color tone\Saturation (Image \ Adjustments \ Hue / Saturation) – let’s add a dark maroon tint:
Brightness (Lightness): 0
Step sixteen. Make the top layer invisible and get on the layer below. Discolored (Shift + Ctrl + U) (Image \ Adjustment \ Desaturate), change the blending mode of the layer to Multiplication (Multiply)
Step 17. We return to the upper layer, make it visible, change the blending mode of the layer to Lightening (Screen) and press the key combination (Shift + Ctrl + L) for use Auto Tone Correction (Image \ Adjustments \ Auto Levels).
Step 18. Apply the command Curves (Curves) (Ctrl + M) to improve the effect:
Values for point “1”: Output (Output): 44, Input (Input): 133
Values for point “2”: Output (Output): 178, Input (Input): 206
Step 19. It is time to apply the channels that we created at the beginning of the lesson. Make sure you are on the top layer, apply Image \ External channel (Image \ Apply image)
Layer (Layer) – Merged
Channel (Channel) – Blue (copy) (Blue copy)
Blending – Multiply (Multiply)
Opacity – 100%
Step 20. Now apply the second channel. With the active top layer applicable Image \ External channel (Image \ Apply image). Note that as the main channel we use “Alpha 1“, And as a channel mask,”Bluecopy“. Blending – Lightening basics (Color Dodge). Invert – tick.
And here is a transparent person in front of you!
