Making Your Own Eyes - I Have a Photoshop Template to Share

Recommended Posts

Hey TU Folks!

 I've learned so much from this community and have had a such blast interacting with you all that I thought I would try to give a bit back. I make my own eyes using waterslide paper, holographic foil, Photoshop, and epoxy. I cut the eyes out using different sized leather punches and one of the most difficult things for me in the past was getting the eyes themselves to print to the correct sizes, namely 10mm, 8mm, and 6mm. I have a friend who is a graphic artist and she came up with a Photoshop document that utilizes Smart Objects which allow you to click on one of three layers (10mm, 8mm, or 6mm) and embed whatever image of the fish eye you would like. The document then converts that image within the layer to the correct size for printing. No messing with print settings, image sizes, resolutions, etc. It takes a little bit of skill with Photoshop but nothing too complicated and I will gladly help anyone through it. 

 If anyone here would like a copy of this document with instructions just let me know. I'm happy to share it with you all!

 

Tight Lines!

I should mention that you can still do all of the editing functions that photoshop is capable of doing before or after you've embedded an image into the document. Below is a sample of some of the eyes I have made utilizing this template:

That is awesome! The eyes look great.  I'd be interested in some instructions on how to do that.  Make a little tutorial and put it in the how to section (just an idea).

@eastman03 Thanks man! Sure that's a great idea. I'll put something together and post it in the How To forum. I'll upload the Photoshop template there as well.
