Can you explain how to use the transparency feature?
Do I apply it before or after I layer it?
You want the edges to have more transparency than the center right?
By the time it gets re-sized you lose all detail in the center.
This is layered only with no other adjustments yet
This might be difficult, I'm not all that great at explaining these things off the top of my head and it's been a while.
1st, enlarge the image of the penrose tiling(keep ratio if possible)
2nd, center it over the sun(you basically did this)
well... see, this is where it gets tough lol, because there's a couple ways of going about this...
You can either create a pattern using the tiling image, and simply airbrush it on
When layered, use an eraser tool and adjust the strength of it, slowly making it more and more transparent
But I suppose, this all matters on which version of photoshop you are using. To accomplish this, may take someone with a good amount of experience
with their particular program.
I know, I might have lead you down a rabbit hole with this one, because there is more than one way to skin this cat. If someone more proficient in
explaining this can help, please do so.
Also, there are 1000's of tutorials online, many on youtube if you truly want to get a real good feel for what your doing.
Keep up the great work, once you get it down... you will become addicted!
I used to spend countless hours on photoshop creating some of the most amazing images, sadly, I don't have the same computer anymore, and didn't back
up any of my images!!!
I once made an aerial view image of a rocket coming from a ship, rising over the clouds during a sunset, it was to die for!(no pun intended) Ah, great
Yes I want the edges to be seamless, also, a fade to white boarder might be a nice touch
