The PPI doesn't really matter if you use pixels as units; 1000x1000 pixels at 300 or 72ppi will still be 1000x1000 pixels. But when you change the units to inches, then you'll notice one is smaller than the other; there will be be more pixels per inch as the name says. As you mentioned, PPI is more for printing, but it can also now be used as a reference for ...

This has been asked several times and I will still say the same thing each time. The best place to develop websites is in the browser which is the environment it will live in. Photoshop and Illustrator have their merits but should, at best, be only used for mockup or wireframing to get a general idea. If this is for a client that will also use the same ...

Over the years I have developed a technique to simulate printing with glazing colors (screen printing, offset printing etc.) while working completely non-destructive, remaining full editability through the whole process and being able to easily export greyscale/bitmap masters for each color. Before we start we need to clarify what we want to do: We ...

I would use the warp tool for this. 1) Find flag 2) Rotate flag and scale down 3) Bring up the transform options (edit - transform or ctrl + T) and select warp. 4) I first lowered the opacity of the flag layer to see easily transform the edges. Bring the edges of the flag to cover up the American flag :( 5) I then traced the arm thing with the pen ...

Responsive Photoshop web templates do not exist. Usually if someone is creating Photoshop templates for a responsive site they are based on the CSS media queries. If you are developing for each media query that is going to be a nightmare if you target up to four devices (mobile, tablet, laptop, desktop, soon to be an addition with Mac's 5k). I would ...

Short answer: No Photoshop can’t create responsive templates. Long answer: To understand why, you need to understand the difference between normal, static designs (like you do in Photoshop) and what is needed for a responsive designs.

Alright well first off I wouldn't use the Magic Wand or Color Range. For something like this: Go into Channels (it's attached to the Layer Panel by default) Select the Blue Channel which will give you the most contrast. Now the pants and skin are about the darkest things, the shirt is by far the lightest thing, and the background is a midtone. Duplicate ...

First of all my suggestion would be to ensure that the aspect ration of the image is maintained. This is one of the most important aspect of making any design aesthetically pleasing. Secondly, my suggestion would be to create a tab on the side of the image, (As I think you have a narrower image than required. This tab can be of the color you want and can ...

Other answers have more than adequately explained resolution, so I'll explain density, which has a VERY different meaning in the graphic design world. Ink density is the total area coverage of paper by the printed ink dots, from 0-400% (100% each for CMYK), and this is important because depending on the printing process, only 250-350% is available for use, ...

In Photoshop 32-bit mode restricts some operations and allows only some adjustments and adjustment layers be used. The dimensions you indicate are not particularly "high". I was able to create a 2000x2000 pixels 32-bit image with no problem and the adjustment layers shown in the enclosed image shows the ones that are not available. Also look under ...

It's possible the text was created All Caps from the pull out on the Character panel. If so, select all the text unselect the All Caps. See image below. Alternatively you can use this useful resource, and copy / paste the text from your PSD file into the site.

There are different color models which result in different opposites. One is a subtractive color model (CMYK) -- the top image, where the opposite of yellow is purple. This is for real-world, tangible things like paint, ink, etc. The other is a additive color model (RGB) -- the bottom image, where the opposite of yellow is blue. This is for light ...

Looks like the Magic Wand isn't quite picking up all the black. To fix this, after making your selection with the Magic Wand tool, choose Select > Modify > Expand... A dialog box will open allowing you to set the pixel amount you want to expand your selection. 1px or 2px should do the trick (more than that and you'll start getting some of the white/red ...

Possibly related: is it mandatory to keep 72 dpi for web design? What if I create in 200dpi? Resolution was the universal term for print production before the web really existed. History dictates it be called resolution. And resolution is the correct term when discussing image quality for print output. Density only refers to on-screen and has no bearing ...

There isn't necessarily a direct correlation between pixel measurements in Photoshop and how CSS works in the browser. In other words, if you need 32px of space on your page, you may have to go with something like 28px to account for margin or padding on another element. In general, it's best to design things 'loose' so things can have a few pixels give and ...

There's a similar question regarding InDesign and PDFs here somewhere. But darned if I can find it. Basically.. the file saves the name of the export/web image. So that next time it'll default to the same name (allowing you to overwrite easily). The software is just storing the file name you used. If you don't care about that, you don't have to save after ...

For designing the elements of a web site, you should use whatever tool works for you. Photoshop is a common tool, but there's no requirement that you use it. As for designing full layouts, I'd suggest you treat your tools as napkins. Whether photoshop or illustrator, it's just a napkin sketch and it may need to be changed as it gets put into HTML/CSS/JS.

You want the Threshold function. It lets you set a cutoff value, where all pixels lighter than that value become white, and all others become black. The Threshold function can be found at Image>Adjustments>Threshold.

Here are some thoughts that hopefully arn't too off topic. In some cases it may be better to leave out some of the information on the image and place that in the message area on Facebook. One suggestion, have the only text on the image be "$40 OFF MOBILE CAR DETAILING. Example You could add the phone number to the top right. You can get more creative ...

In offset printing, the only time colors are going to appear "multiply" as on the example is when there's an overprint on some spot colors. One way to work with spot color easily is to use the channels in Photoshop and bring each part of the artwork on the specific channel. That's not as easy as working with layers when creating an artwork and playing ...

If you really want to do this in a "mechanical" way or if you need to print CMYK + a Pantone, there's a few ways to do it. Here is one: 1) Make a duplicate of your file and keep the original file somewhere. 2) Make a layer mask to isolate the nipple image from the shadow; use a brush with a hardness that isn't below 85% and not 100% either. Don't use ...

It's easy to change the color of guides in Illustrator. Just select your guide line, right click on it and select the Ruler Guide option. There you can change the color into whatever you want. If it's not a ruler guide (say you made it by going to Layout -> Create Guides) I think you have to change its color on the Master page using the above method.
