PaintShop Photo Pro X3 - Changed Photos

Post by princess111 »

Here is a summer photo of the Manteo lighthouse in NC, USA changed to winter photos using PaintShop Photo Pro X3.

I created these photos on my own after watching LeviFiction's and Corel's PaintShop Photo Pro X3 video tutorials on the YouTube channels.

During creation:

Manteo Lighthouse (Winter) 1: I used several layers. Each layer is an image, so that I could easily do edits. I created a duplicate layer of the layer I wanted to work on. From the duplicate layer I created selections of the areas that I wanted to change. Then, I created a mask from the selections, since there were areas that I wanted to erase. After I was finished with the changes I merged down the masked and duplicate layers. After merging down the layers, I used the color replacement tool at 2 different settings to change the green areas to white - to make it look like snow covered areas.

Manteo Lighthouse (Winter) 2: I used several layers. Each layer is an image, so that I could easily do edits. I created a duplicate layer of the layer I wanted to work on. From the duplicate layer I created selections of the areas that I wanted to change. Then, I created a mask from the selections, since there were areas that I wanted to erase. After I was finished with the changes I merged down the masked and duplicate layers. After merging down the layers, I used the color replacement tool at 2 different settings to change the green areas to white - to make it look like snow covered areas. I added the snow using the air brush at 2 different settings and adjusted the light and contrast - to make it look like a snowy day.

Basically, I created the same effects/adjustments to both photos. Except, in the Manteo Lighthouse (Winter) 2 photo, I added the snow.

Please share your comments and constructive criticism. Give me your feed-back.

Hey Ron P.: :D

I'm glad to hear you like my work. What is it about the work that you would like to know about when you asked: "how it was done?"

Please let me know, since I tried to explain, my best, in a brief description of what I did and how I did it. What photo are you referring to?

Thanks

Sorry, I guess my wording is a little misleading. I was thanking you for providing that bit of information, on how you created them..

That's OK. You don't have to apologize. We all make mistakes. You're forgiven.

Thank you LeviFiction:

I owe a lot of the credit to you. Your YouTube videos really helped me in understanding what to do and how to do it. From time to time, I watch your videos if I forget how to do something or are confused. It's a refresher course. Thank you for sharing your talents.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed these photos.
