And set the “Advanced Modes” to “Difference”. Then drag the focal circle to the very bottom corner of the picture so it’s almost off the picture altogether.
Note: Do NOT drag the circle off completely because this will turn your picture completely black
You’ll see a blurry black circle at the bottom corner of your picture but don’t fret – we’ll be covering this later with a monster.
Go to the “Save & Share” tab at the top of the screen and save the picture as a jpeg. The background for your finished picture is now finished.
Insert the picture you just saved on Picnik and stretch it so it’s a little bit bigger than the presentation page on every side.
Use the tools at the top to select which parts of the picture you want to remove and which parts you want to keep. When you are satisfied with the results click “Keep Changes”.
Note: If part of the leg or something gets removed, don’t worry – the background is dark so it will blend in
Remove the background and resize the other monster pictures and a picture of a frightened girl. Place them where you want and group all of the pictures together. While the grouped picture is selected, hold “Ctrl” and “C” to copy it.
Then go to the command tab at the top (it’s a dark blue tab) and save it as a jpeg.
Go to the “Effects” tab and select the “CinemaScope” option. Uncheck the “Letterbox my photo” option and click “Apply”.
Your creepy picture is now complete! Save it as a jpeg and share it with your friends!!!
You can use these steps to create other great scenes too. Try adding zombies to a city picture or vampires to a grungy alley! Or take a picture of your own home and infest it with creepy creatures.
