To this – which is our edited version for the flyer –
(below) Is the version that was edited for printing & online gallery use. When designing the flyer ( you can see the flyer at the bottom ) it became apparent that the image was over all to bright to carry that much text. When editing images, know the purpose of the images can totally change how you finish the image.
I was going to post a GIF animated file – but instead I have grabbed a few screen shots to show what each folder in the layer stack is doing.
Here is the overall Layer Stack:
Below is the broken down screen shoot in the grouped layers.
