The blending...After trying SO many times to blend and utterly failing, I found the lasso tool on Photoshop. How much do I LOVE that thing?! It allows you to remove the part of the pic you want, leaving the edges slightly transparent so they fade a lot better. Most of the time, you still have to do some major tweaking but it's SO much easier than just trying to blend two pics on your own. Alas, I'm still total crap at adding text.


You might want to try blending using masks and brushing everything else you don't need. Lasso is a very useful tool but edges look smoother when you play with a brush....and you feel like a real painter :)

And I recently found one useful thing about text. First you type what you want+Enter, then press Ctrl+t (while you are still on typing tool) and then you can do any transformation you like. And if you click on the text and press Ctrl+t you'll open Character and Paragraph palette ;)

I'm so sorry I'm late in replying! I was away on holiday and couldn't get internet access for about a week! But I was so happy to see this up! THANK YOU so much for third!! And thank you for that lovely banner, it's going to go straight to my user info on livejournal! :D :D And congrats to rebelliousrose and mfirefly-really gorgeous work! Your love for the lovely Agathon family really shows <3

And Rose, thanks so much! Yes, I used Photoshop :D I can send you the texture I used if you like? I should still have the .psd on my computer somewhere, and that way I will be able to remember exactly what I did :mrgreen:
