I did this once, but now I've forgotten....how do you crop a picture into an oval shape. In PSP, I can get the oval over the picture, but then I don't know what to do....can anyone help me here?

Hi Maybee
Open a New image
Draw your oval or whatever shape you want and convert it to a raster layer.
Click INSIDE oval with the magic wand.
Now open the photo you want to use and right click - Copy
Back to oval and right click - Paster INTO selection.
TADA.

Here's one I just did

Another Way that won't distort the image by trying to make it fit inside selection:

Open photo
Draw shape over it - solid outline and transparent fill.
Layer palette - Convert Vector (shape) to Raster layer.
While on shape layer use magic wand and click INSIDE shapewith the wand tolerance on about 80.
Selections - Invert
Mow go to the photo layer - the selection (little moving ants) should still be visible. Make sure you are on the correct layer (photo) and press the delete key on your keyboard. Voila!
Selections - select none.
Add tube or any decorations (I used a flower) then save.

Now I can't get the marching ants. I've opened the picture..and used elips to draw the oval. Last night that got me marching ants...today it blanks out the picture. Can you start with step one (mind has gone blank) and work with me after I open my picture. Sorry to be so much trouble...

Got it! But...now can you tell me how to get the rose tube on Photobucket - Video and Image Hostingtop of the line?

RE: Oval picture

Hi Maybee
Glad you got it figured out while I was sleeping :)
Try this - after you get the photo in the oval add a new layer - make sure it's at the TOP of the layer palette and then add tube and it should go on top of everything else.

Is that your daughter? She is very pretty.

RE: Oval picture

Thank you so much...got the rose just right now....if you don't do this stuff all the time, you forget. I felt like such an idiot that I couldn't figure this out without asking. I'm still using PSP 7...how much better is the latest version and how bad is the learning curve?

Maybee please don't feel foolish - I had to relearn it to write down the steps, it's one of those things you KNOW but can't quite recall.
