Default frame photo in TV set?


It is a bit old hat, but does anyone know of a way to make an image appear
to be on TV? (Including the set, not just the screen).
I can put the image in a little TV-image that I have, but I want to be able
to control the size of the whole picture, so ideally I would like to frame
it. I have fiddled around with a couple of frames that may just do the
job, but perhaps there is something much better out there?

Thanks!

I have never done this, but this is what I would try if it were me. I would go ahead and put the image on a separable layer and then position it and size it so that it looked the way it should. Then I would flatten the image. Now you should be able to modify the size of the whole picture as you desire.

Ok, that would make it better. But how do I get it to look like it is a
head you see on telly?

Oh boy! That's almost like asking someone to explain to you how to drive a car. First of all, I would edit the picture so that it had the content that I wanted. Then, I would drag it onto the picture of the television. This would put the picture of the person on a separate layer that can be modified separately. Making sure that the "person" layer is active in the layer pallette, I would go to Image|Resise|Scale, which will allow you to adjust this size of that picture appropriately. Then, you might have to do some other editing to get the two pictures to blend the way you want them to.

In my opinion the easiest way to do this like Jim explained it to drag the image over the image of teh TV screen, set the opacity of this layer to about 50%, resize the top image with the head to the right size and apply the eraser tool to remove everything of the image with the head outside the TV screen. Finally set the opacity back to 100 % and flatten the layers.
At least, that's the way I would try to do it.

But Elements is just like a language, everyone is entitled to speak own dialect.

Leon,

I don't disagree with your suggestion at all. It's just that I didn't want to go into that much detail because everyone has their own tools that they like to use. You could go in and use layer masks and blending options and.... That's why I suggested that telling someone how to edit a picture is like trying to tell someone how to drive a car. It's just something that you have to do for yourself to find out what is going to work for you.

Jim, I've been using this program for about 18 months now, and I never
noticed Image<Resize<Scale before. Thanks for pointing it out! Now what I
found when using it was not what I expected; it resizes the layer on which
I'm working, not the whole image. It also can be used for rotating and
skewing, so it's an interesting tool to say the least!

Chuck
