Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Masking a photograph into your logo, part of Creating and Adapting a Logo.
- In this movie, we're going to introduce…a photographic element into our logo.…Specifically, this galaxy cluster right here.…And this is an authentic image,…captured with the Hubble telescope,…and it's also public domain.…Now the first thing I'm going to do…is move this image over into my composition.…And you can do that,…assuming that the Rectangular Marquis tool…is selected, near the top of the Tool Box,…by right-clicking inside the image window,…and choosing "Duplicate Layer."…Then, I'll change my Document…to the Document in Progress,…which is called "With white background,"…and I'll go ahead and name the layer "galaxy," let's say,…and I'll click "OK."…And now, I'll switch back to that image…in order to see that galaxy located on a new layer.…
Now I want to change the Blend mode,…up here at the top of the Layers panel,…from "Normal" to "Screen,"…which will drop out all of the blacks…and leave us with just the stars,…as we're seeing here.…Now you need to adjust the position of this layer,…and so I'll get my Move tool on the fly…
