I’ve mentioned how wonderful the printable fabrics from Electric Quilt are for making labels BUT do you want to have some more fun with them?
Do you make memory quilts or art quilts? Did you know that EQ7 has a great photo editing worktable? Here’s a few fun things you can do with your photos.
This is my starting photo…
Colorize – See HELP>HOW DO I>IMAGES
Click IMAGE>COLOR>COLORIZE. In the dialog box slide the hue bar back and forth. When you get a color you like click ADD TO SKETCHBOOK. That’s all there is to it!
“Before” and “after” with a little cropping…
Here’s an “after” photo with the focus on the red.
Color Accents – See Color Accents in EQ Help
Click IMAGE>COLOR>COLOR ACCENT. In the dialog box click the Eyedropper then click the color in the LEFT photo that you want to focus on. Slide the HUE RANGE ARROW until the rest of the image is almost grayscale. Use PREVIEW until it’s to your liking then click ADD TO SKETCHBOOK. How about altering that single focal color
