Fellow TIGgers ... we seek some help with our guide work, what is required is someone that is fluent in Photoshop to help with the masking of high resolution photos and prepare them for adding to the Ledy Guide, this is what has slown progress down on its build.

Basically all you would do is receive various photos of Ledy figures and cut out the backgrounds ready for the next stage of its design then pass back to me to add to our checklist.

Im sure someone out there can help speed this work up with us so were looking for a volunteer who has a little spare time, credit would of course be added to the designs list of helpers.

There is no time scale with this help as gathering information on this scale does take time.

This is not a Dev Role status as we are currently revamping the way this role works.

Thanks for reading, please post below if you can help in this way Smile

For T.I.G.

Hi Admiral, I'm not very clued up on photo shop but if you send me a couple of pic's with instructions I'm a fast learner and have quite a bit of time on my hands. If your happy with the pics I send you back then I'll be happy to help out, not looking for any credit but would love to see the ledy guide fully operational.

Whats that magnetic lasoo mate?

Its a tool that auto connects to the outline on a picture so its easy to cut it out and place it on a new background

Just be careful of the settings or it will pick up the pixels and make the edges all jagged.

Other than that though, it's a great tool.

Hi All

I went to do a bit of work on Photo shop today but it turns out I haven't got it any more, god knows but it ain't there no more lol.

I've down loaded Photoshop Design Studio from download.net which is pretty good but doesn't have the lasoo feature and Its a pain in the ass.

Any one got any ideas on a free download that's good for what I need and preferably has the lasoo thing or similar?

You already are Ozio Smile

Considering the work needed we have decided to just use coloured backgrounds when taking the photos, this avoids the lengthy cutting out process that slows us down.

Thank you guys for the offers of help, its good to see people willing to help the community Smile
