Making Lace Photos

Lace

In the last post, I showed how to turn a photo into a stencil. This time, we’ll be adding a lace effect to this photo.

Using this photo:

After inserting the photo and changing the background colour, go to Picture Tools>Format>Picture Corrections. Set Sharpness to 100%. The picture may look worse at this point, but don’t worry.

The photo has had Sharpness applied to the maximum

Now, set Contrast to 100%. Yep, it definitely looks worse.

Photo with 100% Contrast applied

Select Picture Color and adjust Saturation to 0%

Photo with Saturation reduced to zero

Things are looking up again. Select Picture Tools>Format>Color>Set Transparent Color. Click on a black portion of the picture.

The photo with black portions removed

Now is the time for a little cropping and copying that will make the lace effect stand out.

Cropping and mirroring the photo, makes it look more β€œlace like”

And finally, layer the lace over the Wedding Kiss photo for the result.
