Hi. I have a camera that can take 3 pictures a second. Is there a way
in photoshop 7 that allows me to put one on top of the other and see
through each one so that I can get a a moving effect of a car or
person.

Desmond.

assuming you used tripod or fixed viewpoint and same framing for 3 frames

open pictures

drag photos 2 and 3 on top of picture 1 using shift + drag thumbnail

all 3 pictures should be aligned on 3 separate layers now

on top two layers- select parts you want to mask out or select the figure
you want in - use wand , magnetic lasso, pen tool, or select color range
or combo

hit mask (on bottom of layer palette circle in a rectangle)(you may need
to use select-inverse first depending if you selected background or
subject )

mask off layers 2-3 and layer one will still show
\\



PS you may need to do some additional masking where body parts are
overlapped



I think the newest PS version can do what you ask more automated way
http://layersmagazine.com/image-sequences-in-photoshop.html

but I don't think PS 7 has these tools

Desmond.

   Then it's even easier.  All you just is a basic Photoshop skill then

1. Open the 1st Photo in Photoshop

2. Select the jumping guy part of 2nd and 3rd and 4th and so on, and place
(merge) it/them to the first photo.        You just need to blend the background to
the 1st photo.

   You can even place the next photo over the previous ones if you wish, this
will require a little higher skill level.  Or pretty much similar to the
basic command above, with some additional commands like Transforming,
Blending (or Opacity), Masking (skilled masking command is needed).

   Few years ago I saw a member posted his/her closeup version on
www.dpreview.comand it looked real nice.  I took a quick look (enjoyed it)
ut didn't exam for error, but it looked great.

   Hmmm I think he did 2-3 of them? much much and much better than the sample
you show above.

        This is not exactly what I have in mind, but will try to find a better one

        Here we go!  this isn't the best masking but I think this the one you have
in mind.  Because I have no idea what to search so this took me several
minutes to find the 1st one.

        This one looks little cleaner.  It's too small to see all small detail,
but I believe the smallest one if the original, the 2 larger ones are from
other photos.  Cuz even they are small, I think I can see some hi-lite
around the edges of the 2 larger photos.  This is one of the weaknesses of
masked file, but the owner did a good job hiding them (blending them) which
is good for displaying, but may be more visible on printing.

Not sure how to use a mask to pick out the man but if all the pictures
are taken on a trypod and perfectly aligned then no mask is needed
just merging them all together. That is what I thought I needed to do
but don't know how.

Desmond.

All we need to do is following few very simple basic rules.

1. If all backgrounds matched or similar to each other (solid or similar
color for example), then you just PASTE the selection to the main photo,
then just slightly mask around the pasted photo to blend with the background
of the main photo

2. If the background has some specific pattern (like tree, grass etc..) then
you may need better masking skill to remove the background then blend to the
main photo.

3. After having all additional photos cleaned up, then just load them to
separated LAYERS. Then you can do just about anything you want to do with
them.

- You can move them to any place you want
- You can turn them 360 degree
- You can make them smaller/LARGER if you wish

4. When you are happy with the position of all photos then you can MERGE
them together by using

Crtl+Shift+E = MERGE *all* visible layers.
Ctrl+Shift+S = SAVE AS

Now, I will try to give you some hint based on your perfect aligned photos
(they don't really need to be perfect), but it would help.

1. Load the MAIN photo to the layer.

2. Load the 2nd photo to separated layer (you can load to separated window
if you wish but not necessary). I assume this is the top layer

a. Making a rough selection around the image you want to keep. I assume
it's the small part of the whole photo

[ o ] = example "o" is the object (a man) you want to keep.
Make a rough selection around thew "o"

b. Then INVERT the selection so the selected object now become
*unselected*

Ctrl+Shift+I = Invert

c. Hit DEL to delete the selected part and you now have the main object.
You have to make sure the background is transparency else you will end
up with WHITE or whatever default background color

o = then everything around the "o" will be deleted and only
"o" left on screen (layer)

==========BUT I would do a faster and simpler way==========

a. Make a rough selection around the "o" object

b. Ctrl-C = COPY the selection to Clipboard

c. Ctrl+Shift-N = NEW layer (to make a new layer

d. Ctrl-V = to PASTE the clipboard to new layer (you must select hi-lite
the layer you want to paste to)

That's it! now you have the "o" object on a separated layer (you can now
delete or disable the original layer/photo).
=======================================================

3. From the "o" layer, you can DRAG the "o" to anywhere you wish.

4. Ctrl-T = Free Transform here you can make it bigger, thinner, fatter,
upsidedown, rightsideup anything you wish.

Repeating the same steps if needed.

MASKING, you may need some masking to have a good blending. Masking is real
simple but you may not be ready for it yet. So I would suggest to use the
ERASE Toll with lower opacity to erase around the "o" object to soften/blend
the edge to background.

Of course you can use BLUR and many other command, but I don't think you
can learn too many commands at once.

P.S. The reason I give 2 methods because sometime you need to start from
the very basic step to understand how thing works, then QUICK method to make
faster $$$$.

And I am not so sure this will help you much when you don't know some very
basic commands.

OK, here is another quick and dirty method which I don't really want to
give it to you, not because I am selfish, but because skipping the very
basic step may not be the best way of learning.

It's very similar to other methods, or most if not all are so similar to
each other. Or if you know the basic commands then knowing one is pretty
much knowing most or all (kind of but it's hard to explain).

MAKE SURE the *background* setup to be *transparent*. And this is all
you have to do. Hmmmm I still don't know if it's a good idea to give you
the lazy method which is only good for skilled users who want to learn a
simple quick shortcut

1. Load the MAIN photo to the layer (BOTTOM)

2. Load the 2nd photo to higher layer. I hope you know how to load photo,
or using Ctrl-C = COPY then Ctrl-V = PASTE as well as Ctrl+Shft+N = New
Layer etc.. (see previous message)

3. Make a selection around "o" object (the obhect you want to keep)

4. Shift+Ctrl+I = Inverse (sorry for mispelling in previous message) to
inverse the selection

5. DEL = Delete the background of the 2nd layer (photo)

That's it. repeating the exact same steps on the 3rd and so on photo and
you have it.

Ok What I have done is this make the opasity of one less so I can see
the 2 pictures together. Select image 2 and draw around the area of
the man in image 1. delete this. now I can see the 2 men when both
opasities are 100%. What I should be able to do is draw around one man
or hilight in another method. transfer this area to the other picture
as some kind of mask. That is an area I don't know how to do but it
would work perfectly.

I am so glad that you really want to learn and try. It's much simpler
than you can image, but trying to figure out the next method is one of the
best ways to master the skill.

The Layer Mask = click on the [o] icon at the bottom of LAYER MENU

Then PAINT with BLACK (reveal) or WHITE (seal)

I didn't read the article, but found one for you to study
