I gather you don't think it's Yeesha coming back, then ;)

(Very nice work!)

It could be, but I am thinking Yeesha will pop up sometime after Ahnonay as an imager message.

I might create a second wallpaper which uses the female avatar instead of male, hard to be vague and represent both sexes in one figure with out it looking odd.

That's not how you show images through photobucket. There should be a direct url that goes through http://i93.photobucket.com

Hey, just a tip. You may want to feather the edges of the figures on the upper layers, so they don't look so... pasted-on.

Aquestion from a person who is compleatly new to photoshop:

How do you erase the backrond in images, like around the Avatars?

What I do is I use either the magnetic lasso tool or the polygon lasso tool to select what I want to keep (Magnetic is only really good for if there is a lot of contrast between the background and the subject you want to keep) and use the regular lasso tool to make any selection adjustments I need to before I remove the background with the delete button.

Also, holding down the Shift key then clicking with your lasso tool will allow you add more to what you have already selected. pressing the Alt key will allow you to remove bits from what you have already selected.

It sounds a little complex but I will show you later, right now though, I haven't the time.

Also if you need some more ways to capture that THANG............
try using your eyedropper tool to get the color of the thing you want to isolate from the background if it has a color difference of say any kind.
then....
try using the Similar selection under Select menu to grab it. That will give you a collection of the pixels that are the same color 8) if you didnt get them all the first time.
If you want to get a softer edge to that Thang try adding a feather of say 3 to 5 pixels to your image and it will select and give it a softer edge so it doesnt lool like your cut it out with a butter knife :wink:

8) hope that helps
