Cowboys Collage

About 9 months ago, I made a Brokeback Mountain collage wallpaper for a forum with Photo Collage Studio. By chance, I received a PM(private message) today from Toto, he wrote to say he loved this collage and asked for some tips.

Oh, tips! I can only explain it abstractly.
Step 1. Select a large pixel picture as background.
Step 2. Drag & drop to add more pictures and rotate them a little to be nicer.
Step 3. Apply mask effect to make the edge smooth.
Step 4. Set transparent to one or two pictures to serve as a foil to the background.

Well, share the collage again!

Color masking

I found a good blog about PhotoShop tutorials. With the permission of author, I would like blog it and share with my readers.

Color masking, Published on Jan 9, 2007 and posted by Stratan Ionut.

In this tutorial you will learn about color masking. A lot of photos are gray scale but you can also see parts of the photo color. I will learn you how to make this so it looks real.

Tips, click the image to enlarge. :)
Start off by opening a flower for example.

Nice effects, isn't it?
Create new fill or adjustment layer > Hue/Saturation.

Make sure that Colorize it’s checked and play with the Hue until you get a color you like.

Press on the Hue/Saturation layer and get the brush tool. Start brushing the area you want to give the color back. (Play with the brush sizes because you will need smaller brushes in not so wide areas)

Windows Vista Slide Show in a Laptop Bag

Publish on Jan 17, 2007 by Cucirca, at

Windows Vista new SlideShow technology may be very useful with a switch off laptop. It allows to reach music and photos, and to check e-mails and other data.

Eleksen launches a very high tech laptop bag which has a 2.5 inch LCD display and the slideshow technology.

The module can receive data from the laptop PC either wirelessly through Bluetooth or via the USB connection depending on the application.

So you can communicate with your laptop even it is on, off or in sleep mode.

Additional controls can be added for enhanced functionality or to support new applications such as MP3 playback, photo album show, video clips, etc.

Still a prototype, the laptop bag should be on sale very soon.

Make an E-card for your Valentine

Every February, across the country, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine. On Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually. Now, more people prefer e-cards to deliver their love, and, DIY is most popular! So, are you ready to make your style e-card? Here’s a tutorial about how to create a Valentine’s e-card with pictures and music.

Step 1: Find a program
Search flash slideshow software via Google and choose the one which meets your need most. Install the program and start up. The tool I use in this tutorial is Flash Slideshow Builder.

Step 2: Browse
In the "Browse" tab, select the folder where your pictures are in, then drag-n-drop to import the images.

Step 3: Edit
Swap to "Edit" tab and make some basic editing. For example, crop, bright & contrast etc. For creating a romantic e-card, I apply "Old Picture" effect to the selected image. No matter what effect you’ve selected, that’s real-time preview.

Step 4: Decoration
Decoration – the most important step to spicy up your slideshow.
Click the "add" button to input the sweet words for your honey and select desired text effects, font family / size / color / style. It’s selectable to set a delay of each text by clicking the "delay" button. Then click the "Preview" button to view the final result.

More free fonts can be download from

Step 5: Effect
Swap to "Effect" tab to apply picture effect, which includes transition effects and photo motions (pan & zoom effect). Drag and drop to apply to the transitions, and so as the Pan/Zoom effects. Once a photo motion is applied, you see a mark on that picture. Right-click the image, there are more options for setting.

Step 6: Flash template
All templates are divided to two parts – general templates and thumbnail gallery templates. Certainly, you could make your style one with the built-in Theme Designer. Suppose no theme is needed, simply un-tick the "Enable Theme".

For adding background music, click "add" button at the right and import music (mp3, wma, wav format) from your pc. Then click "Edit Audio" to trim the audio.

Step 7: Setting and Publish
Click "Settings" to make your slideshow more professional. For example, control bar (the Heart style would be best for a Valentine’s Day e-card), preloader, water mark, etc. And it’s finally the last step, that’s to publish. Of course, "Publish as EXE" or "Publish as SWF" is best choice at this moment.


  • Besides text caption, funny sound clips and records can be added to single slide, too.

  • The delay of decorations, transition duration and photo duration could be set to 0.1 second.

  • For sharing you flash on blog or MySpace, please visit a tutorial here.

  • For sharing it on YouTube, you have to publish it as SWF file and convert it to AVI with Flash to Video Converter.

  • For delivery via CD, please publish as EXE file and burn with Nero.
