    Applying Logo's

    Continuing on from a question in the screen shots forum

    Using Photoshop, I'll show how to add a logo to a plain sided container, something I've had to do on a few occasions.
    '
    First is the plain sided container:


    Find the logo you want to apply and using the select tool, select the logo:


    Once selected, drag the selected area over to the container image:


    Right Click the image and select "Free Transform".


    Drag the selection out to the size you want, and also move it around for correct placement:


    Select Image -> Adjustment -> Desaturate.


    Select Image -> Adjustment -> Curves. Adjust the curve until the tones look about right.


    Adjust the contrast up a bit, in this case I set the contrast to 17.


    To do coloured overlays, I use the method someone else mentioned.

    Apply over the top, adjust top layer to 50% transparency. Merge layers, then select the areas I just merged and adjust contrast and saturation until it looks right.

        Also, to use a tip wiscentral gave me, artificially enlarge the texture so that when you add the logos and text and shrink the texture back to its original size, the logos and text won't appear jagged.

          Yea, enlarging the image to larger than what you need, and then shrinking it back works as well to.

          If anyone is interested, I'll do another on how to get the alignment of the logo's right by using a photo.

                The tools are there in PSP, different names and methods.
