Please, I have question about repainting with Adobe pho

Recommended Posts

I am repainting a aircraft in photoshop format. It has layers but the question I have is how to type or put numbers and letters on the plane!! I have tried a couple of different approaches but nothing seems to work I sure is something simple. I will be happy with any help. Thank you:-)

There's a text tool on the tool bar. Look for the capital "T". It creates a new layer automatically, at least it does in ver. 5 on up, then you can move the text into place as you would an image. The backgound should be transparent already. If you're re-painting an aircraft, painting around panel lines and rivets is almost impossible. You may have to make a panel line and rivet "template" the hard way, by tracing over the existing lines and rivets on seperate layers. Once you do, though, you can reuse it many times.Good Luck;telephile

Or, you could select the color to apply with the eyedropper tool, then select the airbrush tool, change its mode to "color" and apply to the surface. Dave Vega

I usually use teh text tool but then merge the text layer down to a blank layer then do things like scaling and change it to multiply or color so you keep some of the background elements like rivets and fuse joins.Hope that helps
