Superimposing breed standard onto stack photo

Does anyone know how to do this? I've seen the finished product but am unsure of how to go about it. I tried to find an example but was unable to. It is just the white lines of the standard placed over the photo...

Thanks!

Re: Superimposing breed standard onto stack photo

Wish I could help you, but I have no idea. I know how to do it in photoshop, but if you're looking for word or something like that, I don't know much on how to overlay unless you can change the initial picture's makeup to make it translucent.

Thanks anyway! I'll keep looking. I suppose I could always trace the angulation lines and hold them up to the picture myself

Re: Superimposing breed standard onto stack photo

This was done in photoshop. It was the best I could 'fit' the standard over Rugen. (He's still growing)



I'm new to this program but it wasn't hard once I found the right photo to use. I needed just the outline of the GSD standard without a fill color behind it. Like what you were describing.
I superimposed this photo over my boy. I'm sorry- I don't know how to do it without photoshop, I hope this helps. Maybe you could use the transparent photo in another program.

How I did it in Photoshop Elements: I created a new "blank file" under the file menu. After resizing the photo of my GSD down to the same size as the outline I selected the portion of the image I wanted to use (crtl a) and copied it (ctrl c) then pasted it on the new blank file (ctrl v) which created a new layer. I did the same with the outline of the GSD and then changed the transparency of the standard outline's layer to about 44%. From there I flattened the image and saved it.

Here's my train of thought, you can follow it if you want.

I used Cara's link. He was looking up in this pic so the heads don't really match.

Lies- I just love Nikon. He couldn't be more perfect.

Emily- It's possible using that link I posted to superimpose the image over your photo using Power Point. It doesn't look quite as nice, but it's actually easier to get your photos sized correctly lined up, at least for me it was!




How to in Power Point:
Insert your GSDs photo first then the standard over it. From there you can make your GSDs photo larger or smaller to fit inside the standard by grabbing the corner of the photo. Once they are lined up select the standard photo and right click- format picture. In this box you can set the transparency of the photo. I have it set at 23% in the photo above. Next select both photos (drag a box around both to do so) and right click again- select grouping- group. Then all that's left to do is save it. Select "File" then "save as"- Change the format from ppt to gif (Graphics Interchange Format). Then you're done!

I'd love to see more of our GSDs here if you wouldn't mind posting your final product!!! If you are having a hard time I can help or do it for you in either program. Just let me know.

Have fun!

Thanks Cara! I love Rugen and his head! I would love to put his head on Nikon, lol. I hope Nikon matures to look like Rugen.
