    Thank you ! I am most pleased that Masking makes sense now..all the rest falls into place after that...not to mention that while I find spending hours in Juxta erasing backgrounds ( it can be soothing..:coffee:) the ability to do something ELSE makes me :D

    Now for the newbie question from me ... please could you tell me what kind of masking you did in Blender and Iris?
    I am also very new to masking and blending so any and all assistance I can get would be fantastic.
    Thanks in advance. ;)

    Ok...this is the hard part ! The student becomes the teacher...:lmao::lmao: Let me see if I can explain..( if you can explain it - you can do it :lol: )

    First let me say that I blended many, many times !!!:eek:

    Here goes :

    1. So, after I ran the photo through perfectly clear and saved it. I decided that I needed to crop the photo which I did in Iris - ( A ) then saved it. That is the photo I worked from.
    2. Then, I ran the photo through Shock my pic ( B) and saved.
    3. Then blended A + B to reduce the shock effect and (C) saved.
    4. Then I used (C) back in Iris ( note: Filterstorm was crashing something fierce so I went with Iris) and drew a mask on the background ( the area that I wanted to make changes to) which created an Image Mask.
    5. Once I found a filter I liked - I applied it using the Image Mask which I had created before and (D) saved.

    Note: This was critical that I learned in Iris. I had to create the Image Mask FIRST before I did any applying of Filters. They give you several options but...if you are trying to change say the background you have to create an Image Mask. ( I think that is correct :whistle: )

    6. Then I went back to Blender and blended C + D and saved.
    7. From there I tweaked until I had a photo I liked but always using the masked image when applying filter changes and frame in Iris ( E ) and saved.
    8. For a final run I went back to blender again. This time, I drew a Mask on the background of ( A) and then blended it with ( E ) so I could have the flower pop of little more since ( A ) was the original.

    And that was it ! :) Don't ask me what filters I used...:D once I realized that it was working...my muse took over - don't know what she used..but it worked !!

    Masking, Layering, Erasing Masks, Inverted Masks...are the techniques I think that can free you to do your art and help you with the compositions that you see in your " minds eye " of a photo.

    Hope this helped..o_O
