I know you guys are thinking....OMG!! ANOTHER TUTORIAL!! haha. Well...YOU'RE RIGHT!! Very Happy This one is on....

MAKE YOUR AVATAR A TV STAR!!

1. First of all, you'll want to take a screenshot of your avi. I chose this pose, as I figured it'd be cute, since my avatar will look as if she's trapped in TV. Make sure you are in a green room or such, as it will make your deleting the background MUCH easier!



2. Delete the background using your magic wand tool. I went ahead and edited the image (very little). Feel free to use your own methods during this step. After you're content with your editing, resize the image by going to IMAGE --> IMAGE SIZE. The size that you make it is totally up to you...these are simply my dimensions...



3. Now that we've resized the image of our AVI, we want to make our canvas bigger. (Note: You can skip the resizing your avi image, and go straight to this, however, I don't like to have to scroll to see my whole image, so I choose to shrink my avi image, before increasing my canvas size). To increase your canvas size, go to IMAGE --> CANVAS SIZE. This step looks like this...



4. Here are the dimensions I used....make sure this is ALL you have clicked. DON'T click "relative."



5. This is what your canvas looks like now...see how much larger my canvas is than my image? We want that. Very Happy



6. Now...you'll want to download the font from dafont.com. You can find the font I use here. The TV in my image is the letter "D". haha. You simply click and drag the text box to take up almost your whole image, so that you can make the TV big enough to where your whole avi's face is in it. I set my font to 530 pt. Here is what my TV looked like after I centered it over my avi's face....



7. Now, select your magic wand tool....you will use this to get rid of all the excess image. This step looks like this...



8. Now click on your shape.....you should see the dancing ants around it like this...



9. Just one problem....we don't want to delete our avi that's in the middle! So......we need to hold down SHIFT button and click in the area where her face is. This will deselect the middle, so now it will only delete the parts OUTSIDE our TV. Smile



See how the dancing ants are only on the outside now? That's GREAT!! That's what we want!! Very Happy

10. Next step is to right click on your black shape....scrolling down to SELECT INVERSE.



11. Afterwards, make sure your image layer with your avatar on it is highlighted and simply hit your backspace button. VOILA!! You now have your avi in a TV!!



(I did a little more tweaking to it and here's what I made. Feel free to do whatever you wish with yours, just make sure you do one thing.....HAVE FUN DOING IT!! Very Happy)

Anytime I try to delete the rest, it tells me I need to rasterize the layer... Huh? I don't even know what that means. Haha

@LostWonders: Hmmm...which layer are you trying to delete? make sure it's the one with your avi on it. Also, try rasterizing the layer. if it works, awesome. If not, just hit "undo" and let me know! Very Happy

@Mariah: Badge tutorial? You got it! Very Happy You shall see that by tomorrow night!

Well, I tried again & it worked!!!

But then my computer decided to go kerplunk & I lost absolutely everything... So I can't show you... And now, I have to use GIMP, because I can't find Adobe Photoshop for less than $200...

So, I'm really sorry, but I can't show you. Haha

If anyone knows where I can find Photoshop for less than $200, let me know, please.
