i just need2know the effects in the avi given by me,there was no cropping the whole original pic was used,could u pls tell me how2blur some parts of the pic as was done here?
how the orange effects were done(like by brushes or textures or another way2?)i want2learn all the effects done here if u can explain or give tutorial that would be great! thanks alot!

oh and how the black text "Rachel" to look like transparent at the end (it became orange at the end)or like more than one color?

thank u so much! looking forward 2 your answer!



First of all, the whole picture was used, you're right about that. But I don't think it was blurred. Instead, the person probably did something called "dragging" the picture onto a new document and moving it to their desired position. Dragging can be done when you open up a picture and set your mouse on it and simply pull it to your new document. Next, they added textures. The blending mode was probably "overlay" from how bright it is, but I might be wrong. You could always play with the blending modes until it's to your satisfaction. And obviously, the person erased some parts of the textures/brushes to not let it cover the girl's face in the picture. Also, the cut-out of the girl can be done by using the marquee tool which selects it and then you copy it and paste it onto the avatar. The person de-saturated it and probably set it to the blending mode "Luminosity". Oh, and for the black text, the person made it look transparent by either playing with the opacity of the text or setting it to another blending mode. Texts only look good transparent when textures are added, that way it takes the color of it.

*takes a deep breath* Okay! I hoped this was somewhat helpful. Sorry if it seem rushed. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. ^_^

THANK U so much! that was clear explaining& it really helped cause i wanted to learn more options in making aviis! i just have one more question pls! i know those orange textures are textures the other kind of bluring that looks like a light layer above the pic it's obvious near the smaller pic of the girl's face,and u can see that slightly bluring layer is not on the area around the girl's face in the avi,i don't think that was done by a texture! or was it? hope u can tell me how was it done! oh and when u erase a part of the texture will the pic beneath it show in case the texture was put above the pic?

and i really appreciate the help! thanks alot!

Well, I'll try to answer as best as possible, here are some of the possibilities. The person either used the blurring tool or used something called a "light texture". Here's an example of a light texture.

Those kind of textures are mostly set to "Lighten" or "Screen". Also, both of the pictures were on different layers, so that's the reason why one picture looks blurred and the other doesn't. If you de-saturate the smaller image of the girl and set it to "Luminosity", that could be the reason why it looks blurred. It's simply because parts of the picture are taking colors of the textures (a couple of textures could've been used).
Oh, and yes, the picture beneath it will show. It all depends on how you layer it and what blending modes they are set to. The outcomes may look bad or good. In my opinion, I like textures to be layered on top of the original image so the blending will look better. Also, just play with the textures until it looks great!

I hoped this was easy to understand. >.<

i see, well i was wondering because yup light textures like the example u kindly gave have colours too,so i wonder if they'll appeare as a screen or almost transparent blur layer! hehe i wonder if that made sense!

any way i'm grateful for your help,&u did help alot!*hugs* thanks!

hi again! :P
if i may this time i like to ask like when i have like 2 pics i want to put in avi,i don't want to crop any of them,and i want the end of the first pic to blend withe beginning of the second pic so that there's no divding line between them specially if the color is different like the background of the first is black&the second's grey?i think smudging won't work in this case! so how is it done?
like for example how this avi was made i guess in this example it's easier because it's the same pic!


thanks in advance!


I did some experimenting to see if this effect worked on all pics. Most of them do, like this random picture I worked with.

The whole image will be used because if you squint, you could see that the whole image was used in the avi but only some parts were included.

1. The person started out with a blank document and duplicated the picture
2. The bottom picture stayed the same, only with textures added though.
3. The top picture must be layered below the first pic.
4. Then de-saturate the top picture.
5. On the first picture, the person erased some parts at the top.

A tip is to play with the opacity of both of the pictures.
If this was hard to understand, I can make an actual picture tutorial if you want.

Hey! i was working on doing something else first and i have a question(hope i'm not being a bother) i filled the blank document with black color placed the pic i want to ut on the avi on top of it but it won't take the whole document,so on the bottom the black background shows,now i want the end line of the pic to blend with the black background,i used the eraser it blurs the line but the dividing line between the end of the pic and the rest of the background still shows visibly what 2do?

this is what i work on
that's what it looks like when i erase the end

the effect i want 2 do is like in this avi




Oh, it's not a bother at all, I mean, this is a help forum after all. Besides, I'm more worried about if you're understanding my steps, lol. XD

Ok, first of all, you wanna pick the right eraser. Choose the one that looks like this. I'll tell you the next part after.
