It’s beginning to look at a lot like Summer. The beautiful warm weather makes us glad that winter is long gone and things are heating up! It comes as no surprise that our User of The Month is once for warmth as well, heating things up on ImageChef with her spicy creations. Yes ladies and gentleman, we are proud to present our ImageChef User of the Month For April 2013 Caroline!
Caroline first caught our attention when she suggested to us that we add the Paint Bucket tool to our sketchpad. Since then we have been dazzled by the amazing animations she has created using the tool.
Hailing from the UK Caroline has only been using ImageChef since 2013, but has wasted no time becoming a master of our most difficult tools. A fan of image editing website, we hope that ours has become one of her favorites.
Bringing images to life, Caroline‘s work tells a story that is simultaneously playful and mysterious.
A loyal friend, Caroline often makes remixes inspired by her ImageChef cohorts.

in Best of ImageChef, Fun, new features Tags: Creative, imagechef, Masking, Sketchpad, stickers
Ever since we added the ability to mask out objects in ImageChef Sketchpad our users have exceeded our wildest expectations, by creating awesome remixes and terrific templates. Masking an object (or deleting the background)- as many of our users know – can be quite time consuming. That is why we are thrilled to introduce a brand new tool that is essentially a short-cut to a great masked image… the ‘Paint Bucket’ Tool!
This new tool will help you create awesome Stickers which you can save, share, and use again at a later time.
Read through our nifty ‘Paint Bucket’ tool tutorial to learn the in’s and out’s of this great new feature and get masking today!
Masking with the Paint Bucket Tool on ImageChef.com
Step 1: Get started by going to ImageChef.com, launching ImageChef Sketchpad and pulling up a photo that you would like to mask, and clicking on the masking toolbar…
Step 2: Once you have pulled up the masking menu bar, select the ‘Paint Bucket’ Tool…
Step 3: Begin to click on the areas (most commonly the background) that you would like deleted. Each click will delete a portion of the image…
Step 4: Continue clicking till all the areas you do not want to be part of your image have been deleted…
Step 5: Once you are fairly close to having the image masked out, choose one of the detail masking tools and use it to clean up the rest of your image…
Step 6: Now that your image is all masked out, grab an awesome background, and add other images and text to create a great remix! Save and share with your friends!
The Paint Bucket tool is also a great way to make stickers. We have added this functionality to our sticker maker tool as well as to our Sketchpad!
Have a blast using this new tool! The ‘Paint Bucket tool was suggested by ImageChef artist Caroline - If you have any ideas for features you would like added to the ImageChef website please don’t hesitate to email us Support@imagechef.com – we’d love to hear your ideas and will try to add them to site for you and other users to enjoy!
