How to cut out an image like this.

- Use a paint brush stroke brush over the eyes. [x]
(You can find some brushes here.)
- Then set the layer to soft light and you’re done! [x]
Sorry that it took so long for me to get back to you. I was trying to take screencaps to show you what I was talking about and my computer like stopped working and then I had to leave. Anyways, I don’t think there is a way to do it with a text layer. Here’s how I do it:
Type out the text layer and put it where you want it.
Duplicate it and turn off the visibility of one (You’re duplicating it just in case you need to change anything later):
Right click on the visible layer and click “Convert to Smart Object”
Then you’re done (:
How to make a “Falling Objects” image like this:
*Edit: I was told by the original editor, use Topaz to your favorite settings and her PSD is from gottabeboobear. If you use something like #12, the white fill layer isn’t necessary. (:
Here it is! You’re welcome (:
- First make your gif. My gif tutorial is here. Make sure the dimensions are 500x332.
- Now make a new fill layer of white. [x]
- Set the fill to 60% in the layer pallet and opacity to 35% [x]
- Click the marquee button. Change the setting from Normal to Fixed size. The Fixed size for across the top will be Width: 500px Height: 10px [x]
- Make a new layer and click the upper left hand corner of the gif. Fill in the selection on the new layer. [x]
- Do that for the bottom, too. Now that those are done, go back to the marquee and flip the Height and Width. Height: 500px Width: 10px [x]
- Now you’ll have something that looks like this [x]
- Set it to Soft Light [x]
Here’s the finished product:
