Overlaying Scan Data to an Image

Post by Fairos »


I'm basically after some sort of program or an easy way of creating a nice image for a website that incorporates part scan data into a photo, or is this sort of stuff left to graphic designers and the like?

I make those kind of pictures with Photoshop, just take a couple of images from roughly the same perspective and then try to allign them all in PS finetune with the transform tool and with a mask you can make the transfer between stages in the image :)

I use Xara designer for this, which is similar to photoshop and easy enough to use. Any graphic editor with a warping transform and graded transparency should work fine.
