Photoshop GUI is a bit unproductive for this problem. The data is there, its just extremely hidden*. The straight color can be read though its just a bit convoluted. If you need this often for whatever purpose record following action (I need this pretty often for 3D work): Preparation Hide layers you don't want flatten for straight color. --Start ...

I think the problem you have is that your lines are set to stroke 'inside' so no matter what the pt weight you wont see a result. You need to click the line style next to the pt weight > then more options > then where it says align, set to center or outside. Hope that helps. Mark

It's not a blend mode. Multiply, for example, gives you this: You'll want to do as @Scott suggested and create 3 shapes, the intersecting shape being the colour of your choice. For example, create two circle shape layers, then copy both circles into a third layer and then intersect:

Perhaps attempt using content aware fill. Select the area you wish to fill using the box marquee tool, and then go to Edit > Fill > Content Aware. PhotoShop will fill the area with it's best guess as to what it should be using the rest of the photo. You will more than likely need to do some major retouching, but this should help. If this does not work, try ...

This has confused me many times because I think and want it to be stroke path but its not. What you actually want in Photoshop with the Line tool is Weight. However, once a Line is created in Photoshop it acts as a Rectangular Shape so the Weight can no longer be changed by adjusting the numeric value. Now, Stroke Width will in fact apply a Stroke ...

Have the "snap" option selected Select the area which you want it's edges you want to mark with guides or select the actual object you want it's edges to be marked with guides. Move the guides to the selection - and the guides should snap to the selection, and the selections are always in pixels

Actually it is a more interesting question that I originally thought. I made some tests. Yes it mesures 127 on all channels. I thought it was gray but when I saw the levels on that layer it is actually black. I think there is no way to change opacity to 200%. The workarround is to duplicate this layer several times and combine them. The first time the ...

In CC 2014, you can use the new feature File>Extract assets that will offer a dialog with all the visible layers and plethora of options (resolutions, prefixes, etc) for extraction. Meant for web-developers this feature helped me out a lot. Too bad it's not available in other versions of PS. From what I understand the feature is still under development and ...

If you add a adjustment layer to the layer you want to adjust you then hold the alt-key down while clicking on the adjustment layer. The layer will then move a bit to the right and now only affect the one layer below.

After having created a path, deselect it and switch to the pen tool. Draw a single point outside the canvas (for the sake of easily finding it later). This creates an [almost] empty shape shape layer. Switch back to your path, hold CTRL and marquee select every point in the path, then copy the path information with CTRL+C. Switch back to the shape layer, ...

Yes! You can do this from command line (using the Terminal app) with ImageMagick. After you install ImageMagick, navigate to the directory where your picture is located and run the following command: identify -verbose yourimage.jpg | grep -i quality Where yourimage.jpg is the name of the image. And you should get the value which indicates the image ...

I'm not really certain what the question is here. Yes, you can use Illustrator and yes you can use Photoshop. It all depends upon your preferred working method and desired end results. Illustrator will be slower the more objects you have. There's no real workaround for that, but utilizing layers and symbols properly will assist (turn off layer visibility ...

Unless the pixel you are looking at is on its own layer, it is impossible to tell whether the colour was applied as a low-opacity "pure" colour or a full-opacity mixed colour. In your example, a pixel that was the result of using 50% opacity black on a white background is identical to a pixel that resulted from applying 50% grey (or, rather, (128,128,128)) ...
