Designing Over Odd Objects in a Photo

Heather Taylor was the third-place winner in an earlier DreamDraper Before & After Contest. Like many entrants, Heather submitted more than one design. On one of her additional entires we really appreciated her use of DreamDraper in a way that many people may not realize – to overcome out-of-place elements in a photo of a client’s home.

HTaylor - BeforeHer second entry had to overcome a funky wrap of fabric hanging in the client’s window. She didn’t let it get in the way of designing on a photo in DreamDraper: her solution was to use a window rendering from the Design Library to overlay the original window in the photo and cover the distracting treatment. She then made the window transparent enough to let light and color from outside shine through for a natural effect.

Heather-Taylor-3-bThe end result is brilliant in that you need to look close to even realize there is a DreamDraper-rendered window on that wall; it might as well be the original window! And the fabric in the window has been flattened and dulled to the point where it does not distract from her beautiful design. Thanks, Heather, for demonstrating that DreamDraper does not just dress windows, it creates solutions.

Good luck to all designers who may use this helpful tip!
