I'm trying to reproduce signatures on a flood damaged certificate to be reproduced on a fresh parchment photo paper. I have isolated and copied all of the Old England type face but the signatures are in different colored inks. How can I isolate and copy them?
Please post the relevant part of the image.
I would recommed:
• removing the underline by clone stamping
• duplicating the Green Channel and inverting that
• using Curves to isolate the pertinent elements (and brush out the remaining unwanted elements)
• creating Solid Color Layers with the appropriate Layer Masks based on that
Thanks for this, so far. However, this doesn't seem to isolate the signatures. They are still on the blue background and I can't paste them onto a new document.
Have you looked at the Layers Panel in my screenshot?
Am I seeing if I turn off the color fill, I'm left with the signatures? Is that the answer?
Thanks.Following those steps, does using curves to isolate the pertinate elements means outlining each letter in the signature mean that I am doing what I started to do? That is, outlining each letter in the signature and copying the result to a new layer? If so, that's what I was hoping to avoid (outlining each signature).
I was talking about »Curves« (as in Image > Adjustments > …), not »Paths«.
