(Sorry, I didn't know wether to put this in here, or in humor. I figure the mods will kick it around 'till it finds the proper home...)


I seriously lack ANY photoshop-fu, or many many aeons ago my "Lest We Forget"/unknown soldier AV would have been switched to an altered version of the pic that Fox Mulder had up in his office in the X-Files (see linky bellow) only - of course - with the titular Mexican hat replacing the "UFO".

Heck, I am surprised that such an *obvious* (and yes I'll admit - kinda lame) attempt at "humor" hasn't been done before and on MORE than one occasion.

(PS: Some other image ideas I have thought about would maybe be that "Lest We Forget" image clutching a sombereo to his/her side,

And a couple that I think would be pretty cool but likely I would never try - even if I could - just because they'd be too time consuming and would be WAY WAY to over the top, even for me, would be the/a mothership/s images from either "V" or "ID4" replaced with a sombero/sombreo.

I myself would be eternally grateful if someone created just the "Lest We Forget" AV for me to use! (*HinT...hint*)

However not being a lottery winner, large breasted nymphomaniac, or even a small god (neither kind of god or Q-like being at all, in fact...) I know not what I could offer in gratitude..? Outside of some .sig file kissing the AV's creator's ass - metaphorically speaking, of course .


Honestly, I would not even know how to *begin* to create something like this...

I don't even (*seriously*, *honestly*) know how I could or could even cut out a copy of a sombereo image from he rest of a background....

I would love even a *pointer* or tip or even how to begin....

(I have "gimp"....becase it's free....)

I (honestly) don't even know what a damn bloody "transparency" is supposed to be...

The magic you people are like Gods to me. (A.C. Clarke was *right* about that.)

What I guess I first need to be able to know how to isolate and then "lift" (a copy of) a/the sombereo off of a background...

Tell gimp what is hatm and what ain't. What is background...

A very uncluttered background....right?
Twitter: ("dash" *is* spelled out!)
