Follow the steps below!
Upload a portrait of one of the lead characters of your chosen movie or TV show. You may download the image by browsing Bing, which is a search engine integrated into Pixomatic.
Adjust the size and the intensity of the brush by dragging the slider to the left or the right. Now, trace the borders of the portrait. Here’s a tip: zoom in to the picture to get a perfect outline. When you’re done, tap on the green circle at the top right corner.
Select Adjust in the left panel and decrease the brightness, saturation, exposure, and shadow, and increase the contrast.
Click on the edit icon in the background layer. Now, select a plain background. Note that 18” x 24” is the size for medium posters.
Select the cutout layer in the right panel and resize the cutout by dragging the corners of the selection upwards or downwards. When you’re done, click on Save Image.
Start a new session with the image you just created.
Select Add New Layer to add a second image. Upload a photo of an important event of your chosen movie or TV Show.
Adjust the size of your layer photo and fit it over your background image by dragging one of the corners upwards or downwards to resize it.
Click on Double Exposure in the left panel and select the blending mode in the right panel. I chose Plus Lighter for this editing tutorial.
Click on Add New Layer in the right panel and upload the logo of the movie or TV show. You can do so by typing the title and the words “logo png” in any search engine. For instance, I typed “Stranger Things logo png.” Do the same to get the logo of the film studio or television network.
Click Save Session if you want to edit your work later, or hit Save Image to download your image.
We can’t wait to see what you create!
