Hello. I hate to bother you folks with such a simple question but I have a picture I want to insert into a locket but need to make the heart shape. The widest part of the locket is just under 3 quarter of an inch. Is there an action or something? Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Some people just don’t seem to have much Holiday Spirit. Here’s what you can do:

If you have Photoshop 6 or later, you should have at least one heart shape in the Custom Shape Tool just below the Type Tool. In the tool bar at the top navigate to the heart shape you want to use.

Just below the Image and Layer menus in the same tool bar are three options. Select the first one, Shape Layers.

Drag out the heart where you want it on top of your image. It will fill with the foreground color but that’s OK…it’s temporary. You can even adjust the opacity to see through the heart to the image below. Holding SHFT while dragging will constrain the heart to it’s original shape.

Once you have the heart placed where you want, look in your layers palette and notice that it created a vector mask and a fill color layer. Select your image layer and then drag the vector mask only of the heart layer down to the Layer Mask icon at the bottom of the Layers palette. Delete the heart layer or turn off the "eye" and you will see that the heart mask has been applied to your photo.

You can unlock the mask from the image and move the image to the perfect spot. You can also use your Magic Wand Tool to select outside the heart. Using a ample amount of feathering will blur the edges of the heart, fading them to zero opacity. Do this by pressing delete after you’ve set the feathering and made the selection.

Happy Holidays!

Dont worry Ron, that V for ya. He always refers to tutorials and never gives an explanation himself hence the smartass answers. But there again thats what he’s here for!

New canvas
New layer
Heart vector & draw out
Activate Paths palette
Hold down Ctrl key and click on path image
Edit stroke heart selection
Ctrl/D to deselect
Merge mask layer into layer below (Ctrl / E)
Open photo graphic and Ctrl / A to select all
Actiate heart graphic and magic wand inside heart
Edit / Paste then into using the move tool position your pic.

Email me if you want more info
Hope this helps (without the smart ass answers)

What exactly is too much time anyway? I hear that a lot. The other day, I’m standing at my usual off-ramp holding my nice Photoshopped sign, "Will be Governor for food." and some guy in a Mercedes hollers out, "Dude! You seem to have a lot of time on your hands." I looked and all I saw were the 4 Rolexes on my wrists. Then I looked closer and realized he had said "thyme." I hollered back, "It’s Oregano, sir. I have a lot of oregano on my hands."
