If I do it at 100 % the whole picture turns white. If I do it at 50, it does get brighter, but not the fuzzy thing.Originally posted by Cordelia
Allycat - To make the 'over-lighted' effect I just use the brushes making sure that the colour I have selected is white, then instead of having them normal I alter it to Colour Dodge and voila! It gives that 'light' effect - you can do this on both Adobe Photoshop and Paintshop too. You can also vary the degree of brightness but changing the % from 100 to less if you require the light to be not so bright etc
What I tend to do is use one of my brushes - I have downloaded quite a few good ones most of them I have used on my banners just recently - that way then when you paint with one of the brushes on colour dodge the whole pic doesn't turn white but just looks as though it's been lighted up.Originally posted by Allycat

My preference is to always create a blank canvas to work on - as in make a new image, then I just open all the images I intend to use on it - then what you have to do is to drag the images into your 'canvas' - to do this make sure that the image you want to drag is the one you are clicked on, for want of a better word, then along the tools at the left hand side, you click on the top left hand tool - the one with the little arrow and cross, then basically just click and drag your image onto your canvas.Originally posted by BuffyUKer
