NUDGE IS OUR FRIEND

This is a re-post from our Hell House Design Blog,which  is being incorporated into the umbrella group of Hell House Studios for easier maintenance and to better serve ALL of our customers.

That's right folks, using Nudge in Photoshop can make a  Creator's life in SL easier and more efficient.  It is a technique I have found very useful and wished I had learned the very first day I installed Photoshop.

Okay, so what does this have to do with my most recent project of trying to learn clothing in SL?

For anyone that has attempted to create clothing layers for SL, you know how difficult it can be to align seams.  With the use of Nudge, you can easily move your selections one pixel at a time. It will assist you in being more precise with your placements of say buttons, trims, or additional elements.  

Also, Nudge is great for aligning seams!

 Using Nudge

To use Nudge, select the appropriate layer or element you wish to move then select your Move tool on you left most palette (this is assuming you have retained the default setting of your tools palette placement)


Once you have selected the Move tool, use your arrow keys to move the item up, down, left, or right.  You can tap the keys to move one pixel at a time.  You can hold down the keys and move them continuously.  If your computer has good graphics and processor, you can watch it move as you apply the movement. When satisfied with the placement, procedure with your other creativeness.

 

Align Seams Trick  

One of the tricks I have learned making clothing is to separate my "Fronts" and "Backs"  so each resides on separate layers.  I do this with with both the "Upper" Shirt/Jacket layer.
