The Countdown continues! Here is a comic with eleven tips on taking photos and using Comic Life 3 to make them even more amazing!
One of the coolest things in Comic Life 3 is the Instant Alpha feature. It is perfect for pulling the subject out of a photo and dropping them into another setting. This comic shows you a photo going through the steps of Instant Alpha, adjusting levels on the Image Inspector, Colorizing and using filters.
A note on how Instant Alpha works – the tool matches the color you click on to the pixels with similar colors and highlights them. So the color detection works best when the background has a uniform color. Once an area of the image is selected it will turn transparent. And voila! you have an image with no background and a subject you can put anywhere.
