HELP! Photoshop


New Member
Hi there everyone!

I hope I can describe this properly...

i am designing a logo and the client wants an abstract house shape that has the back ground of brick. I have the house but it is red in colour... how do I take an image of a brick wall and merge the house so that the brick wall is actually the house texture not the solid red?

You could try having the brick layer over the red layer and use a layer state like multiply or screen to get the desired effect.

More importantly. A logo should never be designed in Photoshop because of the pixels. By creating the house in Illustrator and then placing in to Photoshop (as a smart object) you can then use the blending mode techniques and get the desired effect whilst maintaining a high quality logo.

Overlay blending mode is great!
