    Using PSCS3, can someone help me, place a photo in a circle or elipse ship.

    Or can you help in placing a circle around a photo and then placing the photo in a word document.

    Your help is valued.

    Can anyone help on this.

    Does anyone know how to place a circle around a photo?
  3. These should both be jpeg
    Open the photo with the ship portal.
    open the other photo, , draw a circle around the area you want using the Eliptical Marquee tool, use the move tool and drag it to the portal
    use Edit > transform > scale hold shift to maintain the aspect ratio and resize it to the portal.

    You now have two layers in the layers pallet move the ship to the top layer
    flatten layers when you're down.
  4. Post the image and I am sure you will get your help
  5. I am not sure this is what you are wanting to do but it might get you on the right track?

    In the main menu at the top of the page after selecting the circle or ellipse:

    Go to Select
    in the drop down go to Inverse, that will make what is outside the circle selected.

    then you can paint what is outside the circle/ellipse to white/black/??? with Fill under Edit.
  6. Curious, was any of this of assistance?

    There is nothing to post,, just asking a question.

    If you want to have a photo, in a circle, how do you do this?

    Most photos are rectangular or square, 90degree corners.
    We want to have a photo that is in the shape of a circle, why does it have to be a specific photo.

    Just take a photo and make it look circular.
    If you can help, then please help.

    There is nothing to post.

    I tried this, it turned the photo black, I could not get it back.

    Thanks for the help.

    I am sorry, i think you misunderstood.

    All we want to do is have a picture in a circular shape, I can't describe it any other way.
  10. Clear explanation, Peano, and, of course, a nice presentation of Mr. Lincoln.
    The only thing I'd add (see above) is something about how to move the ellipse.

    aka beaucamera
  11. Very nice Virginia, probably a cleaner way to do it. Thanks for the work. Just hope this oldster can remember if I want to do it sometime.
  12. Another thought... Rather than do the inverse and delete, just hit the mask bottom (red circle lower right). From there you can uncheck the mask lock button (red circle upper right) and move the cut and photo separate from each other. Using a mask will allow you later to select the mask and blur to allow for an feathered edge with all kinds of options to correct/adjust.

    THANKYOU 2 times, you should show the person, who wanted a photo, how to do this. I think his name is Watts?
    Pretty easy, thanks.

    Well, i must say. My need for help got off to a bit of a rough start.

    But Holy Cow, some of you nice folks, well you just saved the day.

    This is a great bunch of people, well almost.
  17. Trust me, I know how.
  18. I guess it is quit easy... once someone told you how to do it!

    But taking a shot at Mr. Watts that someone should show him... is just not called for.

    Also as a side note.... I'm sure Dave Watts has forgot more about PhotoShop than most will ever know!
  19. Dave "Mr. Watts" has taught me things about Photoshop, Aperture, and Mac that I didn't learn in a 3 credit/16 week college course.
    We learned to use the Marquee tools and cut out circles in the first lesson at school.

    Thanks again Dave.
  20. This was totally uncalled for, Dave is one of the nicest guys I know.
