Things you need to know to create something like this in After Effects: How to make a Project and Compositions When you start AE, you can press Cmd+N to create a new Project with one Composition inside it. If you already have a Project open, pressing Cmd+N only creates a new Composition. In this project, I used 2 compositions. GUI comp to hold the ...

Adobe's Photoshop supports something like 300,000 pixel canvas's. It has a "Save for Web" feature that allows you to save a PNG24 file (which supports your alpha transparency). It too has all the functions you are looking for.

Is this what your referencing? the #52524A color as the top most of grayscale. this was achieved via image > adjustments > gradient map. and setting the black to #52524A.

There are probably a few different ways of doing this, and in different programs. This is how I would do it: CODE: Start with a color background, and add a text layer/s with the code in white. TRANSPARENT CODE BEHIND: Either duplicate your text layer or create a new one, apply a gaussian blur to it and make it semi-transparent (30% or so) PICTURE BLUR: Use ...

To be honest, I'm not quite sure what your problem is. At least in my download of bootstrap, there is no .png file, just font files (as .ttf, .woff, .svg and .eot). So here are some ideas: 1: If you literally want to change the picture you have uploaded, open it in Photoshop, set Image -> Mode to RGB and color it using a Hue/Saturation Layer with ...

Your best bet is to use your current work as a guide and recreate the squares using opaque colors. This will also alleviate your intersecting problem. Create guides around your squares. Create squares using the selector or shape tool (vector might give you longer mileage)

You don't actually sound like you want greyscale. You want a toned image. In Photoshop.... Image > Adjustments > Desaturate Add a new layer above and fill it with #52524A Set #52524A layer Blend Mode to color Add a mask to allow the color to only cover the image area (and leave transparent areas transparent.) You can do the same exact thing by ...

To make the entire image grayscale: image -> adjustment -> black and white First, understand that greyscale is a scale of bright-to-dark values that have nothing to do with color. Two very different colors can appear very similar or identical if you simply desaturate the image, because only the color, not the tonal ("grey") value, was providing the ...

Prototyping with the 'Adobe Suite' has the advantage of: pixel perfect shiny-ness. The disadvantage is: pixel perfect shiny-ness. The reason "AAA" companies use it has a lot to do with tradition in that that's what everyone used pre-internet. The big ad and design firms were never ones to jump on change so have slowly drug the Adobe Suite along ...

I suggest using the adjustment layers, found at the lowest portion of your layers panel. It's the black and white circular icon. When you click this icon, you will find all the standard adjustment options: curves, hue/saturation, and levels. Create this layer above your image and make adjustments until the areas you want adjusted are satisfactory. Then ...

The Publishing View in Microsoft Word 2007 lets you maneuver all text and graphics very easily. You can create text boxes just like in InDesign, use rulers and guides to align text, group or ungroup objects, insert info graphic shapes using circles, squares, and rectangles, and more. I've been using Word tools for over 3 months to develop creative, info ...

The best way to do this is to build one master piece that is perfectly aligned vertically and has the center of the circle (e.g. with no fill) still intact. then you can rotate and duplicate around this center piece. Leaving an "uncropped" version of an element around is generally good practice for that reason. Want to change the radius or gap between them ...

For web, it is much better to design text elements using HTML and CSS than using images. The possibilities in modern standards are so good that the benefits with using images are much less now than they were before.

Whatever gets the job done Photoshop is absolutely fine for some tasks. In fact, it may even be better at times. It all depends upon the final desired output. (example: Illustrator can't dither gradients... Photoshop will.) A well-rounded designer will use many tools to complete a project. It is rare to rely on only one piece of software for all projects. ...

Images (PNG, GIF, JPG, etc) are always rectangular. So if the intent is to make image-based rollovers, yes, they would be rectangular. Options: create an image map for each image that triggers the rollover use one large image, with each image map region triggering a swap of the overall image Note that while image maps still have their place, these ...

I had a similar problem with CS5 and I found out that I had option Web colors checked, and this didn't allow me to set the colors that I wanted. This might be possible solution.

You should be aware that pixels do not equal print centimetres at all. There are many factors in play in this specific problem, but mainly you should start by setting your canvas to a print size, and specify it in the final medium you want to print on. If you're aiming towards a DIN A4 document, the size es 210mm wide by 297mm tall. Resolution also plays a ...

Actually Photoshop is design software.. It "also" has options for editing a photo. Primarily designing is done with Photoshop. It cannot be sidelined as a photo editor. Photoshop is certainly not similar to picassa editors. The wide range of features enables people to experiment with every kind of effects. There are many ways with which one can create ...

Yes, using Photoshop for designing software is industry standard practice. Im totally with you, i prefer making designs in Indesign or Illustrator vector based, but Photoshop supports vectors too (Smart Objects) and many people use it.

Unfortunately the Outline View feature was removed in Fireworks CS5. If you can get a copy of CS5, hit Command/Control + K to view all object edges. Do you have a copy of Illustrator? You could copy your image assets into that, lay them out there (using Illustrator's Outline Mode) and then paste them back into Fireworks?

You will have to save the Fireworks document as a .psd and open it on photoshop then copy whatever you want on the document you converted to a .psd

I know this is really old, but this technique is really useful, make a black square and text layer on top white; group them; go to live filters "other > convert to alpha", go to "adjust color > color fill" and choose your color in this case white, after that you can change the opacity as you want. The good thing about this, text is still editable just use ...

In this specific case vectorization is not just easy its brain dead easy. Just: paste image in illustrator hit the live trace adjust live trace settings to 4 colors and set path fitting to 0 px Ignore white on expand object -> path -> simplify Angle threshold to 90 Straight lines. Now there is only one kink in the darker of the two transparent areas ...

Alright the lazy way: Open the first screenshot with the white background in photoshop. Magic Wand on White Delete Delete the Background Layer Save For Web End result with the History showing: I suspect you can do this in Fireworks too but I never touch that. I agree with others though that doing this in Illustrator as vector would be a better option. ...
