For those of you who enjoyed the manipulated photos, here is another way to display your photographs that I think is neat. It is often refered to as OTB or Out of The Box. It requires no plug in but is done entirely in PS. It requires several layers and about 30 steps wtih multiple actions in many steps. Bottom line it takes about 30 minutes once you've got it down.


Hope you enjoy.

Yes it was. Both my wife and I really enjoyed it. The activity took almost 3 hours of walking through the bush with lions. These cats had killed an impala the previous day. It was my wife and I along with 6 guides. The cats are 18 months old and are about 250 lbs. We have a couple of hundred photos.

Werner, You're welcome. If you would like to see some additional examples, go to our website
and look in the folder titled manipulated photos. There is one of a young cougar with blue eyes that is really neat. if it was in Africa I would post it. This as you know is the american lion.

Werner,

On flicker your will find an excellent tutorial.

The only error that I found is that when you have completed the frame, you need to hit the check mark before you can continue to the next step. Enjoy, it is a neat effect, and the individual who did this tutorial did an excellent job.

Most unusual
by: Werner

These are most unusual photos and I like them very much. Do you know of any tutorials on how to get this otb effect? I think half an hour is well worth the time for the end effect.

Very cool effect

But 30 minutes of PS may be a bit too long for me!
