More On Custom Selections
ok well someone asked me to do a lil Tut on Custom Selections so here it is,
not exactly sure if it's what she meant but here goes.
First it's time for some useful information
Top - can only go from 0 to 1 pixel short of the height of your tag so say your
Tag is 400 pixels high then your Top can go up to 399,
also the Top can never go above the Bottom so say the Bottom is at 299 the
Top could only be 298 at the most.
Bottom - can only go from 1 to the full height of your Tag so say your
Tag is 400 pixels high then your Bottom can go up to 400,
also the Bottom can never go below the Top so say the
Top is at 299 the bottom could only be 300 at a minimum.
Left - can only go from 0 to 1 pixel short of the width of your tag so say your
Tag is 400 pixels wide then your Left can go up to 399,
also the Left can never go above the Right so say the
Right is at 299 the Left could only be 298 at the most.
Right - can only go from 1 to the full width of your Tag so say your
Tag is 400 pixels wide then your Right can go up to 400,
also the Right can never go below the Left so say the
Left is at 299 the Right would have to be 300 at a minimum.
Custom Selections can be used in many ways, here is one way I used it in my Mask Tutorial
when I made the Tag I started off with the following
And had to explain the simplest way to create this sooo
I recreated the above with the red strip on one layer & the cream on another.
Activated the layer with the with the cream on ... Selections> Select All> Float
click on the Custom Selection button so the settings pop up and
with the "Use current selections as Default"
checked the settings now showing match the ones that are on the tag.
so the I just took a screenie of the settings.
Then I repeated the above process for the red strip layer
And that's it all I had to do in the tut was to tell people to make the
1st Custom selection and fill with their color then make
the 2nd Custom Selection and fill that with a second color
Select none and hey presto they have their strip really quickly.
