    yeah, i know i should have known this for years, but whatever, im a hack.
    anyone have any tips for making shit look like it was really taken right off a tv? ive done a bunch of these tonight, and most of them look ok (IMO) but they dont look exactly real. they're missing a certain sort of something... im not sure what. anyone have anything they'd like to show the class? im not talking about 3d robots (no offense mams) but more 'organic' stuff. make sense?

    why the hell would i post a pic of myself? c'mon now.

    brown, i know what your talking about. sometimes i'll take the pic, save it as a low quality jpeg, open it up, save it again. and just keep doing that till i have the desired 'look.' it works better with some pictures than others. blowing out the saturation helps too. but im still searching for the right 'formula' cause its always one step off.

    aserine, heres the crash course.

    make a new image, 2pixels tall, and 2 pixels wide, transparent background. (yes, very tiny).

    now make half of that black, so you have a 1x2 black square, the rest transparent.
    edit>save as pattern

    now open up whatever pic you wanna put the lines on.
    make a new layer ontop of it, open up the fill bucket and click 'fill with pattern.' if your using 6 it should be along the top. if your not, you're gonna have to go looking cause i dont know.

    it should fill the layer with lines.
    gausian blur like .5 or 1. change the opacity to fit your fancy.

    i did alot of other stuff, like spherize the image a little bit, so it would look like a real screen bowing out. i also made the little black screen border and added a very faint 'reflection' of light just below the ansiq.

    hope that works for you.

    thats how i did it another way to do it is go to halftone in the filters make black and white as your colors and itll automatically do that stripe shit for you i also tried different patterns besides black and white lines i tried circles, checker patterns its pretty damn neat did you just put that black and white stripe layer on top of the main picture and fucked with the opacity or what? i love photo shoppo
