Introduction: Seamless Photographs

Picture of Seamless Photographs

There are three ways to get seamless photographs.
1. Use a large enough background.
2. Use a seamless backdrop.
3. Filling in the background.
I am going to discus filling in the background with a simple program like paint.

Step 1: Background

Picture of Background

I start by creating a mottled background if you don’t have one you can make one by selecting, copying and pasting a photograph of anything.
That is how I created these mottled backgrounds, I selected a ½ inch square, copied and pasted then reselected a ½ inch square, copied and pasted until I created these background.

Step 2: Select

Once you have a background select the centre copy and paste to the photograph leaving gaps around the object in the photograph.

Step 3: Fill in the Small Gaps

After the main body is filled in zoom in and fill in the smaller gaps one pixel at a time.

Step 4: Finished

In no time you have created this.

Hey this is a cool way of doing this but ya I use gimp when I do this kid of stuff but I have never really thought of using paint.

I just got gimp and havent had a chance to play with it.

Gimp is really fun the best way to get familiar is just to play around with it. have fun

Good job. And I'm really glad to see you use Paint. Everyone that has windows will have Paint and not have to buy an expensive program to do this.

I don't know if you've seen it, but GIMP is a pretty powerful imaging software package. And the price is right, it's free. GIMP will do a pattern fill with a pattern you create.
