What I did: Create each wave with white to transparent gradient in different layers (maybe solid fill works better) Each layer is set as "Soft Light" Layer order does matter, play around which ones should go on top of which till you get the effect desired. Set varying opacity for the lighter ones I did it in all of 10 minutes I think. Hope it gives you ...

If you know how to do this in PostScript do it in PostScript. PostScript is very far from dead you know, it's just that it no longer serves Adobe's goals very well. Adobe really hasn't dropped PostScript, it's just that it works badly as an asset transfer mechanism. So printer realities get discarded when using it in this manner, which is not what you want. ...

According to this answer on Quora, all you need to do is change the EXIF data of the image. You'll need to download ExifToolGUI v5.16 and Download ExifTool to do the job (Windows only). Using those tools Facebook will recognize your image as an interactive panorama.

This cursor indicates that you are in "copy" mode which for example: if you hold the combination of keys like you did (ctrl+alt, while using brush tool) over any layer you will automatically copy it and grab it while you can move it around holding keys and releasing to place the copy wherever you want. Hope that helps.

Your best bet would be to use a Smart Object. Open your Layers palette (Window > Layers or F7); Select the layers containing your objects in the Layers palette; right-click and choose Convert to Smart Object; Do your transformation / rotation with the Smart Object. When creating a Smart Object, you essentially nest one .psd file in another. The object ...

There are many solutions to this but the best is a Curves Adjustment Layer with a mask. Lower the White Output like so: Then invert the mask (it was already inverted in the above screenshot) by clicking on the White square in your Layer Panel and hitting Ctrl/Cmd+i Now with a small brush and low flow and/or opacity paint in the highlights. You can ...

Alright I'll give it a quick whirl. I'm using https://unsplash.com/photos/VGpp0LcHZT4 as the image I'll start by Duplicating that layer a few times so I've got some copies of it and then I'm going to use the Median Filter. Median Filter is a great tool to find the average color of a region giving it almost a paint like quality. This first pass I'm looking ...

Choice of tools is always a personal preference although some tools work better for certain tasks than others. For stickers (or finely-cut materials) a vector-based tool (like Illustrator) will likely be ideal. You can bring a pixel-based image - like a photo - into Illustrator (and most other vector-based tools). Then use Illustrator's tools to "trace" ...

A clipping or layer mask will achieve this in Photoshop, as will a Clipping Mask in Illustrator.


2

Because the masks do different things. The clipping mask you show in Photoshop does a slightly different thing. Conceptually you could see it as painting the top image on any opaque pixels in the bottom image so the order makes sense like that. The clipping mask in Illustrator just uses a path to reveal parts of the containing image. The equivalent in ...

I figured it out. 3D mode wasn't necessary. Create layers. Group them. Select the group folder. Convert it to Smart Object. Edit > Perspective Warp. Drag a rectangle. Press Warp. Drag some of the corners. Press the ✔ check mark to save. Editing the text (or any of the layers within the Smart Object) is still possible after double-clicking the Smart Object ...

Put the image without the transparent square, perfectly aligned on a layer on top of the one with the square and set its blending mode to 'Divide'. Easy. More information on the different blending modes can be found here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/blending-modes.html If you want your square on a transparent background, you can use the ...

Hum. Let me adress ths points, but I will add the real question here. Is your work outstanding? Really good? Average? So - so? The rest of the points depends on that question. My age doesn't help I really do not care about this, but the point related with age is experience; if your proposal really solves a comunication problem, a visual identity ...

This is intended behaviour. In the default display mode, your canvas stays in the center of the screen when you are zoomed out enough for the entire canvas to be visible. To enable panning at any zoom you can enable full-screen mode (and cycle through all the display modes) by pressing the F key. Since Photoshop CC-2014 there is now a preference to enable ...

1) Write eacher sentence in seperate layers 2) Align them left 3) Resize them until they have same width 4) If required, change font size, letter spacing too.

I think I figured it out. The trick was to create a simple mask and using different brush types (different shapes, like grass brush or something) to create this fade out effect using different opacity stages and brush sizes. Now I'm pretty satisfied with the answer. Here is how it looks.

Do not make the photos that large, only if you expect the people to download them for free. As they are just a gallery try something like 1280px wide. In this case, in my opinion forget the 2X option. Edited. The max resolution I would use for a gallery is Full HD. In this case either 1980px wide or 1080 px height, whatever ocurrs first.

Enable the application frame (Window → Application Frame). With the application frame active your whole workspace is treated as one window that you can easily move/resize etc. From Illustrator Help / Workspace basics: The Application frame groups all the workspace elements in a single, integrated window that lets you treat the application as a single ...

Contacting your printer about required resolution might be a good idea. There's a good chance that you will not have to print this at 300 dpi (20m @300dpi would be a whopping 236,220 pixels!), but at something like 30 or even 15 dpi. They might also instruct you to deliver a file at 10% size, so effectively a 9 x 200 cm file.

The easiest way to tackle this is using the lasso tool to trace the text and do a 'content aware' fill (edit - fill - content aware). Then brush over ugly edges with the same color and you're mostly good to go.

Where to start is Layer effects. Specifically add an Outer Glow and change the color to red. Possibly add a red Color Overlay and change the blending mode. Just experiment.

Not really. But it depends. If you are working with vectors then you can resize with no problem but if you are working with raster images then you are out of luck. See: What are the differences between vector graphics and raster graphics? If you are working with raster images, changing the resolution (PPI) and keeping the physical dimensions the same will ...

If the file in question were composed of vectors and type, then it would be possible to do this: open the .psd in Adobe Illustrator, preserving type, &c. in Adobe Illustrator, clean up all objects, remove overlaps, set fills as needed (area fills will come in as pixel images w/in masking paths) save as a vector file which will import nicely into Corel ...

In CMYK "100% key-color" is not completely black in most applications. This is because when printed it will not be "as dark as it gets". You can make a "darker" black by mixing in cyan, magenta and yellow colors. So this is probably intended by Photoshop. I guess that you probably would want (more or less) completely black if you are using it for anything ...

You could determine your Public Folder's Dropbox URL and then open your HTML file and update all of the images tags by search and replacing them with the Dropbox path. This doesn't get you a simple list of public image links, but it will modify your HTML file, so that its links point to each public image (on Dropbox). Here's an example that I set up in my ...

Save the document as a copy as is with layers so as to not lose your work. Create a new PSD Document or open the document you wish to place your logo into, then go to file> Place and choose the location that you have saved your logo file, it should now be linked as a smart object and double clicking on it in the layers panel will bring up the original with ...
