This graphic is taken from one of my flowers that I planted this Spring. Using this photo:
and the extraction tool, I removed the flower and made it a .png file. Then I used the filters to adjust the flower more to my liking. I then opened a background texture and dragged the extracted flower onto the texture arranging it how I liked.
Hopefully you can see in the photo above, the extraction tool causes marching ants to be around the part that I want extracted (I call them marching ants..not sure correct term :)). Once you have those, you can right-click and select invert and do the drop down box to new document and then you will have this as a .png. This can then be dragged to any texture, background or wherever you want.
Once I had it dragged to my background texture (one that I found at Kristy’s Life in Reflection), I then used some brushes to add to the background texture.
Hope you enjoyed my Ruby Red Flower extraction tutorial. Would love to hear from you. Have a great rest of the week.
Whether you like to manipulate your photos to look like a painting with software programs or you just love the way the photo looks straight out of the camera, Pictorial Friday would like to see your masterpieces. To me, all photos are master pieces. So each Friday, I’m hosting a linky party to share your photos and mine. 🙂 I love photography and always have since a child. To me, it’s a great way to capture and view things that might be missed with the naked eye, and also to preserve memories. I also enjoy journaling my Bible reading with digital photography.
If you like this action, you can find it here: Studio Zap as a free download at the bottom of that page. I love this action…so easy to use on any photo.
My selection below for Pictorial Friday is of a sunrise this week, September 28th. No editimg added.
Some of the best photos are ones that just capture a great moment.
So, you’re next. Just click on my little froggy friend’s button below and link up to share your masterpieces. There are no definite rules on what photos you share (be nice though and keep them clean), and I would ask that you would visit at least a few of the other’s who have linked up their sites and make some new or old virtual photographer friends.
And feel free to share my button on your post. Thank you.
You’re next so click my little friend to share you blog. Thank you, and hope you’re come back next Friday too. 🙂

Or maybe he’s just resting after an afternoon romp up and down the electric wires, tree tops or house roofs. Whichever it may be, I was able to snap of picture of him when he flopped down on the branch of the tree and lay there quite a while. Then off he ran again.
‘COLOR’ is the Texture Tuesday theme for this week. Sharing some of my wild flower pictures that I took a couple of Summer’s ago, and the one up in the corner is the swim area at my local YMCA. The grandbabykins loves playing there winter and summer. (Note: you can click on the picture for a larger display of my submission).
Textured with kk_pinitonly2
Visit the other Colorful photos others have chosen to share over at Kim’s site. I’m sure you’ll enjoy browsing the displays.
Thanks for visiting me, and Happy Tuesday and have a Blessed week!!
Abstract flower for sharing with Photo Art Friday for the month of March. It is textured with Notes de Provence 2 from Pixel Dust. Give a visit to see all the other great photo art shared by other lovers of photography and art.
Playing with taking a photo and adding texture to make it photo art to share with Pixel Dust Photo Art for February (theme is to be geometric angles so not sure this is but only angles in a picture that I have at the moment). Thought I’d also share with this week’s Texture Tuesday.
I applied the Old World Charm texture from Pixel Dust and then using my brush, brushed back in the trees and shadows. After I had it like I wanted, I then applied Kim’s kk_2003.
Give a visit to Texture Tuesday and enjoy all that other photographers have shared for this week.
