I found this post on recreating plastics which I found very interesting!
I do see it is 6 years old! But I have some questions hopefully someone may be able to answer
So I have scanned my plastics in and saved them as a lossless TIFF format
I have used the pen tool to create shapes round the plastics
I then read "Using the Pen tool, I start out by creating outlines of the plastics and removing anything from the image outside of the plastics themselves. This includes removing anything between the printed artwork and the edges of the plastic."
that I am at a loss at! I have managed to create a layer round the plastics, but I cannot find how to do this between the outside of the plastics and the image!
Now I have removed the background outside the plastics the handles for the vector shapes have now disappeared!
Also I have no idea what format to now save this work in to keep the transparency AND the vector settings!
Any help would be very much appreciated, I have a graphics place that will be able to print these if I can get them done, but am struggling with photoshop!
Many thanks in advance
