Jakey, Director of Blogville's Department of Artistic Services here.
We are combining February and March's Artistic lessons by doing a 3 week series of tutorials on different aspects of Pizap!
What is Pizap, you ask?? Why Pizap is a free photo editing and design program found right here on the interwebs!! You can get to it by clicking HERE, or just go to www.pizap.com! There is no fee to use Pizap, and you do not even have to "sign up" for them. Pizap is easy to use, pretty user friendly and can help you do LOTS of things!!
In today's tutorial, we are going to learn how Bilbo can play in the mud WITHOUT having to actually get dirty!! I know...it might not seem like much fun to you....but Bilbo says he has a "reputation" to uphold...plus, he has this thing about keeping clean all the time since he landed the most beautiful gal in Blogville, Sasha!
OK....so let's get started! Here is what we are going to need.....
a picture of Bilbo to cut out and put in the mud......
...and a picture of a muddy area!
First...head over to Pizap and click that big green START button on the right!
(If you would like to join their community and save files to Pizap, you can sign up for a free account in the upper right hand corner)
This is the screen you should see after clicking the START button. Click design for the picture we are going to make today.
The background picture will come back after you finish your cut out!Make sure the paint dot is clicked and you choose a brush size that works for you. We used the medium brush size because Bilbo is kind of small.
Now you are going to "color in" the part of the picture you want to cut out with your mouse.
(left click and color with MS click and color with MAC)
Don't worry if you make a mistake, you can click on erase and use your mouse to erase the mistake!
and look...there is Bilbo in the marsh with the duckies, BOL!!
You can move the cut out around with your mouse and make it bigger or smaller by dragging the corners in or out!
We are done editing for this week, so we want to save the picture. To do that click the blue SAVE button in the upper right corner.
Then click the blue SAVE button.
Then you can save it to a place on the computer where your staff will remember it....The desktop is always a good place for our Mama.
So now we have Bilbo IN the mud.....next Thursday we will see what we can do to get Bilbo
If you have any questions about Pizap, PicMonkey or even Photoshop, feel free to leave us a comment and we will answer it next week...or email your staff with the answer. We here at the Department of Artistic Services are here to serve YOU!!
A copy of this tutorial can also be found on our Artistics Tutorials page HERE.
We will be saving all our photo classes to our "Artistic Tutorials" page for easy reference
