The Blend mode of AKVIS Chameleon allows pasting an object into a new background so that the background texture is seen through. In the following example we will show you how to paste an apple into a wooden surface so that it looks like if the apple was drawn on this rough wooden plate.
We will use the photo of a wooden plate on the left as a background, and the photo of a juicy apple on the right as the object to paste in.
In this example we use the plugin version but you can take the standalone program and achieve the same result. Just use the pencil tools in the program to draw red and blue outlines.
Follow the instruction to create the effect of painting on a rough surface:
Note: You can also use any other photo editor compatible with AKVIS Chameleon.
Note: You can take any selection tool available in your photo editor.
How to select in Quick Mask mode:
Now we have the selected apple.
If everything is done correctly, you’ll see a message that the selected object has been saved into the clipboard.
The AKVIS Chameleon window will open. The window will contain the wooden surface as background and the pasted apple.
As a result we have an apple drawn on wooden surface.
In the same way you can create paintings on crumpled paper, unbleached linen, etc.
