Alright, I've got an evil cow but I need help blending him into my bacground. I wish in photoshop that could simulate Anti Aliasing, but I'm dont know if something like that exists. In the psd attached, theres 3 layers 1 text, 1 evil cow, and 1 abstract background. Could anyone show me how to make the cow blend better into the background? Much thanks. :lookaround:

What the . . . I can open that :confused: I don't have photoshop but I can still open that with all the layers still intact :eek: wow . . . never would have guessed photoshop would have made their files able to open with paint shop, figured they'd want it exclusively on their programs . . . .

Anyways, that one if you try to feather it or blend the edges in this case it takes on too many properties of the background and sort of gets consumed by it. I'd say the best shot at making it blend well would be to luminocity blend it (color is a tad off on mine, but I have a suspicion it's just paint shop, so you may be able to skip that) and them use the soften (or whatever the name was in photoshop for the tool, there's a blur tool I used it graphics that was the same thing, so maybe that) to soften up the edges so they don't stand out as jaggedly, and then possibly make some of the grunge brushes over the image istelf. Like I said making it too much blended or feathered made it kind of get lost in the background and it loses it's UMPH, but if you overlay some matching grunge brushes it should blend a little better, but beyond that just softening the edges :uhm:

Looks very good at the moment in my opinion :nodding:

Look to find Seph, this would be his department

Copy the background and paste it on the topmost layer, then set it to overlay. Then adjust the brightness/contrast to taste.
