I’m not hiding it… I’m a crazy cat lady. When the trend of having t-shirts of large faces of animals, merged into the canvas started, I was going through all the t-shirt design sites to find the perfect one for me. So inspired by that trend, I’d like to show you how to create your own design, from a stock image, in Adobe Illustrator. 1. Rotate and Crop Your Stock Image Step 1 It all starts with a cute stock image. Take your time to look through the many photos of cats on your favorite stock site, mine is Photodune . Pick one where the cat is looking straight onto the camera. I’ve gone for this cute, British Longhair, kitten . You could alternatively take a photo of your own cat… if they sit still long enough! Step 2 So let’s bring the stock image over into Adobe Photoshop. The portrait works best if the eyes are perfectly horizontal aligned. With the Crop Tool , I’ve first selected the crop area I want and then rotated the photo with it before cropping. The handy grid in the crop Tool interface will allow you to line up the eyes within the horizontal lines. I have my crop now, ready to move over to Illustrator. 2. Prepare Your Mirror Layer Step 1 Let’s first prepare our document. So create a New document and File…

Working on a book? You may have a photo you’re dying to use on your cover but feel that it may be too busy or contrasting in color to allow text to stand out against it. Why not go ahead and use it – we’ll look at ways of managing a busy background in Adobe InDesign. 1. Pick Your Photo Select a photo that’s of a very high quality (at least 300 dpi) and in a landscape format. Try to visualize what the photo would look like when divided in half – would the right-hand half look strong enough on its own? Would the left-hand half still have some interesting details that would work well on the back of the cover? Why not flip the photo (in Photoshop, select Image from the top menu, then Image Rotation , and select Flip Canvas Horizontal ) to see whether the left-hand half would actually look better as the front cover. I chose this photo, Photodune_AngkorTempleCambodia , and flipped it to ensure the doorways of the temple would appear on the front of the book: 2. Enhance the Colors of Your Photo in Photoshop Step 1 You can edit your photo to complement the colors you will be using on your final cover. I want to use four swatches for text on my final cover. One of these is a ‘warm’ color and one a ‘cool’ color, which work well for contrast against a dark photo. They are also both Pantone swatches which is the best choice if you want to ensure a final printed cover that is as close to the colors in your design as possible. The other two color I’m going to use are ‘neutrals’, a…
