That's very smart - how did you do it?
Ah.. now doing it, and explaining how I did it is a whole different ball game.
I'm sure there are more technically minded guys here that could talk you through the process far better that I could.
Basicly.. In Photoshop, Open the photo. = image 1..
Duplicate the layer = image 2.
Duplicate again = image 3.
Blank off image 1 & 3.
Extract the subject (statue and plinth) from image 2.
Reactivate image 3.
Create a fill layer (colour of your choice)
insert fill layer between image 2 & 3.
Select rectangular marquee tool and select an area on the fill layer to be deleted.
In layer blending options select bevel and emboss and apply as required.
Extract an area on the right of plinth and extract from image.
With the extracted part of the plinth active, select 'layer options.
Create a drop shadow. to give depth to photo.
You can have lots of fun with imaginative backgrounds.
I'll have to look out some suitable images and give it a try.
Is that similar to the way people make photos look 3D?
Wouldn't know the answer to that.
I saw it done on another forum and thought I would give it a try.
I would like to see other examples though ..
