When I can’t find that perfect image, I’ll knock out the background of one and merge it with the other.
I was looking for a picture of a woman in bed with her laptop and couldn’t find what I wanted. I found a woman sitting outside with her laptop, and I found an empty bed. Here’s how I knocked out the background of one and combined the two pictures.
Hope this helps. Feel free to comment and share. #SuiteTuesday
I’m refreshing my front living space. I want to buy an area rug and recover the dining room chairs to match the newly-covered sofa (Surefit.com …I’m a customer). But it’s so hard to know what’s going to work, and I want to avoid doing a lot of ordering, buying, and returning.
Soooo, I’m using PowerPoint.
I have little images of my furniture and am grabbing pictures of rugs, pillows, etc., off the Web (Overstock.com …I’m a customer) using PowerPoint’s screen capture command (see how-to video below). Using actual photos gives me a much better visual when putting the room together.
This is quite interesting and fun.
When I grab the images off the Web, I’m knocking out the backgrounds in PowerPoint, including removing white space. Here’s a how-to video I recorded a while ago to show you how to remove backgrounds.
