Here's a quick overview of getting started with your Texture Bites in ON1 Layers. It's as simple as opening the file and placing your image. This overview also outlines what to do if you image needs minor placement adjustments. Refer to your free Bites video tutorial for details and creative techniques.
- Open the Texture Bites file. Open the Texture Bites file as you would open any other layered image file by navigating to your Bites file in the Browse Module and clicking on it to select it. Now open the file in the Layers Module by clicking on the Layers icon.
In the Layers module you can see the Texture Bites file is made up of 3 texture layers and an image placeholder layer. Click to highlight the placeholder layer as shown before moving to step 2.
- Place your image. Return to the Browse Module and locate your own image file, click to select it, and then open the Layers module. You'll see a dialog box asking what you'd like to do with the new image and you'll select "Add as Layer."
Your image will appear inside the Texture Bites layer stack above the placeholder image. (If it's not above the placeholder, simply drag it into the correct position (as shown with the "Background Landscape" layer below.)
- Adjust. If the resolution of your placed image is higher or lower than that of the Texture Bites files you may want to adjust the size of the canvas to match your image. Select the move tool with your image selected and if necessary, shrink the preview window until you can see the bounding box which surrounds your image. With your image layer selected go to Edit>Adjust Canvas Size.
In the dialog box that appears, select "Current Layer" in the "Set to" drop down list. This will cause your canvas size to match the size of your image.
You will then need to select each of the texture layers in turn and with the move tool still selected, use the move tool handles at the corners of the layer bounding box and drag each corner outward to cover your image or just click the "Fit to Canvas" icon in the tool options bar.
