AD Discussion / Re: Desaturate
« Last post by Rege on August 06, 2018, 09:26:22 am »
Another way to desaturate multiple photos at once: as Teejay said, you can open multiple images at once in an already opened document by selecting them in the explorer and clicking open.

You can then desaturate them at once but for that you must group them first otherwise the desaturation will only be done on a single photo.

To do this, once the photos are grouped, "Layer", "New Adjusment", select "Black & White", adjust if necessary to adjust.

Thanks to Teejay for the one-time export method, I had not yet had the opportunity to export several photos.

I love stripes too. We have a lot of glass in the lounge which is a devil to keep clean but matches the Silvery stripe in the wallpaper and stripey rug (lol). It's a nice light and airy room.  Even have stripey mugs....too much I think!  :smiley01:

Yes, the ones below are more what I have in mind, thank you all for the tips, trials and so on. Creating Masks in PI was very easy, and is easy in PSP and PS too. From what I recall you can only create masks out of images with transparent backgrounds. Also I recall that painting with White brings back detail and Black erases detail.

Beautiful results below. Rege your result reminds me more of a Vignette...lovely, that's another challenge! lol

I did some tests and for the most part I don't remember how I proceeded because I didn't notice as I went along!  :duh: We can, among other things, also play with the opacity of the layers to refine the drawing ...

I tried to get close to what you're showing:

I placed the photo and drew over the circle that will serve as a mask. Put the circle in white and make a mask out of it.
I duplicated the circle and placed it on top of the layers then put an elliptical transparency, black in the center and white towards the outside. I applied a slight Gaussian blur to attenuate the edges.

In my screenshot I used a ring instead of a circle to make the center more visible.

There is a way to play with the different settings (Blend, Blend ranges) to modify the result.

see... now joy has said it you have got to go  and get it seen to or else you will be for it...

just do it ..i feel poorly just thinking of it...


You will be pleased to know you can open more than 1 image at a time in ad ..you must have a document open in your workspace first (it doesnt matter what size)

there are two ways i know of doing this.

you can open your File explorer browse to your images hold ctrl  and click on the images you want and drag them into ad

or
you can go to .... File/Place   browse and hold Ctrl and click on the images you want and click open

both ways  bring all the chosen images in one document at once .



to export and save on mass and not one at a time.


go to the Export persona.

click on the layers panel first and select all the images you want to export




then click the Slices panel  and   click the export preset
choose the jpg or the png setting




next hide the Backround layer .
then click  export slices



you will then browse to a folder you want to save to and click export ...and thats it all will be croped to the size of the image and saved .

if you have trouble ..well you know where i am...lol xxx

this sounds a lot but it isnt. its easy and  there is no 'with or without background' on every image  i use it quite a bit. .. hope this is what you need
