My VERY FIRST attempt at a photo extraction poster. I have made this a challenge to make myself learn more things in photoshop.

Ok - so let me have it. I want to get better at this so I'll take good or bad.

Maybe blue backdrop would look better ?

Nice job on the extraction. What did you use to extract him?

I would add a drop shadow to the baseball player to give it a bit of depth.

I also like how you put your box and darker color to hide the missing portion of the player at the bottom of the poster.

Nice poster.

Extraction is taking the player out of the picture and leaving behind what you don't want.

Nice poster.

Drop shadow . . . I knew I was forgetting something. Your right that would help.

What is this extraction process?

I really stink at this and probably won't do many of these. I am still not very good with Photoshop. It's so much easier to shoot and publish for sales without a bunch of processing.:biggrin:

I like the second version better than the first, something about the color in the first doesn't flatter the player. You did very well Rod, very creative.

Rod, first off, great job, it looks great. Second, I wouldn't recomend doing sales on something like this even if you were a PS master. It will take to long and the return probably wouldn't be worth it.

Thanks Frank. I like the blue better.

Yep - I agree. I would only do something like this if a parent asked for it. No mass marketing for these.

Thanks for the comment and kind words.

Very nice, Rod. I agree with others, blue looks better.

Why not offer for sales...BUT...charge appropriately?

I do a lot of these type of posters and there really isn't that much money involved. Lots of the team stuff we do is simply to keep contracts for other type of pictures that are more profitable. The posters are a break even at best. The only ones you can make a few bucks with are templates that you can drag and drop stuff into. With saying that, it is tons of fun to make these for your kids and friends on the team. The satisfaction of seeing them is worth more than you can charge for them.

Thank you everyone for the kind words and encouragment. I will keep pushing myself to learn new things as I go. This one was actually a template that I tweeked some. I did the photo extraction.

The other posters I have put up here I did from scratch and they take a while to do. But I'm getting a little better and quicker at them. I also made my
own memory mate for my baseball T&I work.

Thanks again.

Definitely the blue Rod and it looks great. I am so needing to start learning this. I just recently had a request for a collage and this kind of work.
