A photo retoucher can add a layer after an image’s borders have been drawn. The layer can become thicker or thinner. In certain situations, the layer could also be colored with the background colors.
How do I use photo retouchers?
For adding text and color, you can use the Text & Color panel in the layer menu, located in the bottom right corner.
You can add an image as well as a layer to the layer menu.
For drawing a background that appears over the border, first draw a new layer. Drag an image into the image panel and then open the Layer Style panel.
Press the + button on a different layer. The text panel will appear, and you can draw over the border in a new layer.
How do I add border styles?
A border style is added in one of two ways.
There is a border-style style option in the “Customize” panel in the layer menu. To add this option from the “Customize” panel, just click on the border style button on the border panel.
In this window, there are several options that you can use.
Borders: The “Border”-style option will add a border around the image.
Size: The “Customize”-style option will add a border around the image and will be as wide as the image, but no narrower.
Transparency: The “Customize”, “Border” and “Size” border styles, plus the “Transparency”-style options, will add a transparent background over your image that will appear when you select images in Illustrator. The original image becomes invisible once the layers change.
What does a fill-effect say?
A fill-effect is a special type of blending which adds text or other elements to an image. When you add a fill-effect to text or an image, Illustrator creates a new layer to display the effect on top of the text. The effect will be drawn using the text layer and hidden if the text does not exist in the layers. Also of note, the background color of this layer is applied to the text or image when you add an effect.
What is a gradient?
You’ve probably seen different types of “shading” techniques with various images with different colors. Most often, the image with the darkest color will have its contrast increased or reduced. You can use gradient blending to alter the contrast and
