Is it just me or can't you overlay a pattern with layer effects onto a transparent layer?
I've tried every whichway, I'm trying to make a scanline effect that can be placed over any image.
There's two sliders, one is layer transparency, one is fill. Reducing fill will not affect, er, effects
Is that what you're asking?
Yep! Thanks Mr X
I forget that one all the time.

I have been sent a template in PDF format. The scale is 1:25.
How do I use this to create the template I need in photoshop? Do I simply have to recreate the sizings and shape from scratch?

Ask for it to be sent in another format, it wasn't made in pdf.

This thread would seem pretty apt!
I'm a complete photoshop retard. Ive saved this image Image and need to cut out some of the letters and paste them on to a background I've already created (in paint!). I've pissed around with the magic wand tool but it's not magic enough, anyone got any tips to share?

Mess around with the tolerances and anti aliasing stuff on magic wand.
The above plus:
Cut out a rectangle for each letter with just that letter and some white space around it.
Hit the white area with the magic wand
Press ctrl + i (I think) to invert the selection

Does anyone know of any good how-to books for CS5? Preferably I'd like one that comes from the photographer's perspective and concentrates on subtle photograph manipulation.
And also is there separate books for Mac and PC uses? Or do all books cater equally for users of both systems? I'm running OS X.
Hello dear EGers.
I have 8 png files that I need to combine into a horizontal strip.
Easyenough if it wasn't for the fact that the png's has a lot of alpha channel. So there is an object in the centre of the png.
When animated the object will look as if it's spinning.
How can I copy from one png and keep the alpha intact? Now when I copy, Photoshop gets rid of the excess alpha for me.
Do I make sense?
Put single pixels in the corners so it snaps into the correct place then delete them when you're done.
Would a someone with Photoshop be ever so kind and remove the background from a logo for me if I send them a link to the image?
Yeah can do.

This isn't strictly a photoshop question, but seems the most relevant thread.
I got a roll of film back from the shop and most of the images have this blue line across them. It's a secondhand camera and it's my first roll of film with it. I had to replace the light seals as they had degraded, but I think I did a pretty good job. The line doesn't look like light leakage, I guess I'll see with my next roll whether it was a one off or not. Anywaaay that's not what I'm here for. Here's a sample:
So would you say that line will be easy to remove for me with my zero photo editing skills, or is it going to be a nightmare?
Possibly do it with a cloning tool. Think most recent photo shops have a cloning tool whereby it would remove the line and match it to the surroundings.

Use the Heal brushes.
Should be simple for them to fix
If you have content aware in your PS, use that.
Or corrected a little because bored.

Ha! Cheers you guys, all sorted. Now to figure out the Batch tool and see if I can fix the whole film in one go.
Checkout Actions, you can record everything you do.

I'm not very good at Photoshop so would anyone be able to help ?
I'm trying to flow text with a giant letter A.
I make my letter A using the type tool, I then right click and create a work path from the A.
I then click inside the A shaped path and start typing.
All is fine except that the central triangle part of the A shape isn't excluded from the path so the text flows right through it, only obeying the outer border of the letter A.
Can I do something to exclude the central triangle part of the A from the path ?

@Gurgy I think that's actually beyond Photoshop to be honest. InDesign and Illustrator would let you do that but just been messing about there and I can't get it to create what I want (ie a compound shape) so that it doesn't type into that centre shape. I would normally just use one of the other two programs.
Let me know if you figure out a way!
