As Ryan mentioned in his comment, this would take a step by step tutorial and it will be very specific for the image you are using but here are some things to consider. Take a look at these swatches for 3D materials. original source You will notice that the more defined the highlights are the more metallic the sphere looks. The third one on the top would ...

Although the question was asked about Adobe Photoshop, the behavior is due to the lossy JPEG format and would be similar with any image editor. Cropping a JPEG can make it less compressible, especially when the x and y offsets of the cropped area are odd numbers. This causes a re-subsampling of the color channels that can make the cropped image more complex ...

Color and numerical values have no direct mapping. That is the hex value has no specific meaning as a color. You still need something called a profile (and profile intent) to tell the computer what the color actually is. To convert hex to CMYK you first need to determine the color via the RGBspaces profile, and then convert it to CMYK using the CMYK spaces ...

Other then dragging guides down from a ruler, you can go to the "New Guide" function in Photoshop. I'm using CS 6, just so you know. This is where you can find the function. Click it, and a box will appear. From there, just put in where you need the guide and what direction you want it in, click "Ok" and you should be good to go!

Color conversions within applications are entirely dependent upon your color preference and profiles. In other words, when you convert between RGB (HEX) and CMYK your settings determine the new numbers. Converting on my system will most likely never result in the same numbers on your system. If you want truly accurate color conversions you need to visually ...

In Photoshop, go to Select > Color Range. Pick the purple color, and set the fuzziness around 100-120. Click Ok. Then invert the selection and create a layer mask: the purple color is gone. If the mask looks pixelated (mine did), go to Select > Refine mask and smooth it a bit. Now click on the sofa and desaturate the layer to make sure the shadow is black ...

Here is a verey simple aproach. But we need to consider some things first. a) The images you are posting are most likley are renders. b) You need to start from a good image from the beginning, which in my opinion must have some characteristics similar to the ones you want in the final image. Highlights and hi key tone. c) Try to work with 16 bit images, ...

Use the Shape Tools to draw a rounded rectangle. Use the Pen Tool and it's options to square-off one end. Use the Direct Selection Tool to move an anchor on the square end so it's at an angle. Duplicate and flip the shape layer you have and use the Direct Selection Tool to alter the angle. Duplicate the shape layer again, square off the other side, and ...

I am not sure if this will solve your problem, but I hope it gives you a metodology to solve it. 1) You need to define what "looks really bad" means. Contrast. Too much contrast? Too low? Color. Has the color shifted? Problems with saturation? Do they look pale? Or oversaturated? Does the problem occur with all colors? Or just with some vibrating colors ...

sRGB is the correct color profile to use, but there are things you need to do in creating the images if they're going to video. Staying within broadcast standards are the safest way to go, but that's an expensive setup to work with. For a simple, practical workflow, do this: Set your black floor to RGB 25/25/25. Don't go below that. Set your white ...

The nature of the PDF can carry a lot of weight.

Set the blend mode of the original image to Luminosity and add a color underneath. Quick and very good method. A drawback/difference to Fannies answer is that the selected color might show darker on the couch - if you need extremely precise color controls, you can then lighten the original photograph.

In Photoshop you can achieve this effect in a number of ways. One such way would be to create a layer filled with white with a black rectangle in the middle. Make this a smart object so you can change the properties to your desired effect. Add a Gaussian Blur and then Color Halftone (Filter > Pixellate > Color Halftone ...). Now make the layer's blending ...

With a Shape Tool selected change the drop down menu in the Control Bar to something other than Path. If this is set to Path you merely get, well... a path. No layer will be generated for a path, only a path will be created (and will be visible in the Paths Panel).

If you need to change the text contents, you can highlight the text layers in the Layers Panel then click Edit -> Find and Replace Text to change the text content for all of them at once. If you only need to change text properties, you can highlight all text layers by holding the Shift key then click. Then do the property changes that you need to do.

The easiest way is to change the image to Indexed Color instead of RGB via Image > Mode. All transparent pixels will be removed and none will be created when the image is downsized. Alternatively, you can duplicate and merge the downsized layer repeatedly. Even a pixel with 1/256th opacity will be opaque after 8 iterations.

Short answer: no, you can not edit an EPS from a vector application directly in Photoshop. Slightly longer and more meaningful answer: You can not directly edit the vector shapes, points, lines, or fills of an EPS file saved from a different application inside of Photoshop but you can manipulate colors and appearance using Photoshop's adjustment layers and ...

Without having a version of Illustrator the same as or later than the version used to create the .ai file, there's not much you can do. I haven't come across any tool that will give you an accurate conversion of any but the simplest file. Even with Illustrator, a direct conversion to an "equivalent PSD" (and I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that) is ...

It's important to realize that the term "32bit" can mean different things to different people. Context plays a large role. 32 bit color depth is an aspect of photography. Photographers use 16 or 32 bit color depth to store as much possible color data per channel as they can. Doing this allows photos to be adjusted and retouched with much more precision, ...

32 bit per channel is most likely a floating point image. Tough it could also be 32 bit integers but i have never seen such images. Both TIF, EXR and some proprietary film production formats can use 32 bit float per channel inside them. There are several reasons for using higher order bit depths. First of the image might not be a photograph. It might be ...

Do you usually use InDesign? Photoshop's text boxes are very different. You have to create the shape you want, then just use text as a separate object. I'm sure there is a much easier way, but this is how I would do it! p.s. I have to add that it drives me insane that the separating lines aren't the same angle! Select the Rounded Rectangle object and ...

You learn practical skills by doing them. There's lots of hard evidence that procedural skills learnt from doing are different and deeper than theoretical knowledge from reading. These then expand your creative possibilities through pushing these new skills, experimenting with them, and creating things with them. So, if it's an area you're new to, do it, ...

Blending modes do not translate to PNG images. I would guess that you've se the shadow to Multiply within Photoshop. Your shadows need to be set to Normal for the blending mode. This may mean you need to better mask the shadow layer or remove the shadow entirely and recreate it without the white areas.
