    Creating Panels

    You can place panels behind images to give a sense of depth or to group together different images visually. Panels are easily created using the Marquee tool. The elliptical version offers both soft and hard edges through its Anti-Aliased control.

    Whether you are panelling a number of images or just one, it is best to devote a special layer to panels so that any alterations are easier to implement.

    To create panels

    • Create and name a new layer. See Chapter entitled Montaging Images, Page 74
    • Position the layer beneath the layer containing the image(s) in the Layers palette
    • Select the Marquee tool you wish to use, setting options in the Marquee Tool Options palette
    • Select the panel area
    • Fill the selection in the normal way

    To create offset panels

    • Follow the first two steps under "To create panels" above
    • Select the Marquee tool you wish to use, setting options in the Marquee Tool Options palette
    • Select the panel area
    • With any of the selection tools active, click-drag the selection border to an offset position
    • Fill the selection in the normal way

    To give vignette edges (soft edges) to panels

    • Follow the first four steps above
    • From the Select menu, select Feather...

    The Feather selection dialogue box is displayed.

    • Enter an amount in the Feather Radius... pixels field
    • Click OK
    • Fill the selection in the normal way
