    Hi,

    Can someone post a link to a tutorial or post one here about how I can go about blending an image (picture) to a colour?

    If you visit http://www.webmasters-network.com/ (MKaufman's site) and have a loook at the logo, you can see what i'm talking about.

    Matt, did you do they logo yourself? If so, can you post steps on how you created it please?

    Or anyone else that knows how to do this?

    Thanks folks,

    Justin,

    I already had a look at that tutorial and although it's quite a good one, it went a little too deep for me and threw me off.

    Any other ones that you know of?

    Hey man wassup?
    Here's how to do that blending (the easy way)
    In photoshop create one layer with the solid colour (blue in that logo)
    Create another layer and paste the picture you want blended into this layer. Now go to the layer options and alter the transparency of this layer....
    there you go a blended pic against plain color bkgnd.
    There is another method you can use with alpha channels but that is a bit complex....
    Hope this helped

    The best way to do this is to have the solid color as a background and the image you want to blend in it on a layer.

    Now you select the side of the image that you want to fade, just use the rectangular marquee tool too do this, the selection should be a couple of cm wide, depending on the size of you pic.

    Now feather the selection by about 50 pix (depending on the size of your selection) and press delete. Thats it!

    Another method is just to take the eraser, use a feathered brush, and take of the side. Than change the erasers opacity to about 75% and brush again.

    I hope this will help you!
