I know this isnt really the place to ask, but my sig is gonna be IL-2 related. Firsto ff, i have Adobe Photoshop 5.0.

You have to put it in a differant layer. There should be an Add layer function in your toolbar. Then you want to put the transparency level down a bit so you can see through it to the background. You can also use the "Magic eraser tool" that will allow you to make the airplane background transparent.

I have paint shop Pro 7 but the way I do it is proabbly the same or similar to photo shop. I take the pic. I then in the program I set up a new pic w/ a transparent background and paste as a new layer. Then I use the cropping tool to cut away as much of the pic as I can and still have the whole plane. Then I use the eraser to get more. If there are distictive colors ie: sky, grass. I use the magic wand to hunt them down and delete them watching to see if any of the plane is affected. Then I go down to the pixel level and clean up the edges of the plane of any of the background still stuck to it. When done all is left is the plane. I save it as a psp file ( you- a psd file). then is is a simple matter if using it.

Just move your plane out in front of your garage - take a few shots & pick the best! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
