This is the photo you took. – You will see the transformation of your photo into the background. I have created. – To do this we must tile the photograph so it looks like all one solid background. Where the edges blend directly into the next tile.
Tileing the photograph
I used Paint Shop Pro to do the tiling. – On the right section of this photo under – Seamless Tiling. – Look at the crosshair. – You can manually move that to any position within that picture. – It affects the outcome of your tile. – The left portion of this photograph shows what the tile will look like. – It totally depends upon the original photograph.
This is now what my tile looks like.
Adjusting The Transparency
Looking at this photograph. – You must slide the slider bar where it says 100 to the left, around 50% transparency. – That is done so your text will show up clearly on top of the background. – Depending on your photograph. You may have to use something other than black. –
For this background. I did do some more manipulation of the photograph to end up with a more pleasing background.
It is all about experimenting. – Be sure to save your work as you go along. – Or copy your work and paste as a new image.
