    Me again having issues with threshold adjustments.....

    Hello to everyone,
    Hope you've all had a great easter time yesterday!!!!
    And now... Introducing today's issue of mine..... Threshold adjustments!!!! And as I read somewhere that it takes a village.... here I am again!
    Here is my original picture:
    TestCali-détourée3.jpg
    I'm onto Cassie's tutorial about Custom PhotoBrushes.
    I'm on the threshold adjustments part and here is the best result I come to:
    testCali-détourée.jpg

    My issue is that I want my threshold adjustments to show the Starbuck cup and the writing on the tee-shirt and I just can't.
    I've tried to move layers, to add layers, to change the opacity..... I just somehow dont't manage to get what I want.
    Important point: I don't fully understand what I'm doing! As a matter of facts i am not a person with logics, then for me it is an issue in itself to understand layers and their interactions.

    So if one of you could help... That would be great!!!!!
    If you have a tutorial to recommend concerning layers interactions... that would be great too!
    Thank you so much in advance!

    I hope someone has an answer for you. This is a tutorial and technique I've never played with. My only thought would be to play with the layers by turning one or two off completly. Best of luck.

    I'm not sure about this one either, I haven't done it. I would imagine that the problem lies in the fact that the cup and such are white, therefore blending into the background. Maybe if you put something colored behind it....

  4. I'm not familiar with Cassie's tutorial, but I just fooled around with your photos for a few minutes and got this:

    It wasn't an elegant method, and I'm sure there are better ways of attacking it. However, what I did was: Take the original photo and convert to B&w, sliding the color adjustment levels for yellow, green, cyan almost all the way to white. I then superimposed that b&w photo on top of your adjustment coverted photo and played with the opacity levels to get the following. As I said, it isn't elegant, and it may not be what you want, but it may be a starting place. Hope that helps.

    I kept trying and playing with the threshold adjustments layers and I came close to your result. Here is my result.
