This is a very, very broad question and should probably be closed as too broad (I voted so). There are a ton of things Illustrator does which Photoshop does not. Just as there are a ton of things Photoshop does which Illustrator does not. In addition, there may be common areas where Illustrator is much better than Photoshop even though features are ...

As with almost anything in Photoshop, there are several ways to do this, depending on what fits your needs and your workflow. Among the Blend modes, Add is called "Linear Dodge". It says that, in fact, right in the menu. You can, therefore, place your images one above the other and apply Linear Dodge to the upper one. All of the "Lighten" Blend Mode group ...

This looks like it could be a linear gradient in a bit of an angle, but since you can make a bit more versatile gradients by brushing and this is already somewhat familiar to you, here's how to do that in Photoshop: Make a new layer and brush in the colors Use hard round brush and don't leave any gaps ...or do if that is what you are going for. ...

There's no easy solution if it is a flat file. Grab the Eraser Tool, the Brush Tool, the Clone Stamp tool, etc. and cover things up. You have to do this manually, one by one.

I don't know about adjusting the intervals. Since the motion of your fingers on the zoom is a fluid one, I doubt it. Personally, I use CMD++ or CMD+- instead. Alternatively, you can open your Navigator (Window > Navigator) and use that. I always have mine placed at the top of my right-hand tool bar, for easier navigation, and you can click on the ...

I turn my vector images and logos in to a font (or fonts). Take your .ai files (after you clean them up, compound path, and crop the viewbox) and export as .svg. Then use the icomoon app to convert to a font. This will display at any size, any resolution crisply. https://icomoon.io/app/#/select Learn more: ...

Use the find options at the top of the Layers Panel etc. Narrowing search parameters hides other layers. If you want to see the layers in the layer panel, but not view the other layers in the document window you can Option/Alt-click the visibility icon for the layer, that will turn off visibility for all other layers.

It doesn't affect lightness so it just can't be seen on the nearly white fence. It's working as intended though. My suggestion: Select the top of the fence Copy Paste Select the new layer Image > Adjust > Exposure -- reduce exposure a bit Select color replacement tool like you were and do what you were doing.

"what is the process/workflow" There isn't one. Or rather, there isn't just one. It will vary from project to project, team to team. Common processes I've seen. 1. Send a large PSD to Dev The designer spends all their time in Photoshop then sends the file to the developer to figure out how to turn it into HTML. This can work when the designer has zero ...

Wow, that original fractal image is amazing. I think you should be able to make something like the portions you’re after, just using Photoshop and a few filters. Here’s a really quick and hacky attempt. And here’s how I made it. Make some fibers Blur 'em Motion blur 'em Levels 'em (more contrast) Add a gradient map Because, gradient maps ...

I think you're really over-thinking this. It is not a stroke. In most cases trying to use a stroke will not yield the straight top/bottom because a stroke will follow the type contours more. It's merely a rounded rectangle behind the type. That's all. The right side may have been manually altered to align with the O at the end of the first line, but other ...

I think a great way to build this would be using a vector mask on a group, with the shape set to subtract — if the bottommost shape on a layer is set to subtract, it will remove the shape and fill to the edge of the canvas. If you’d like to investigate further, here’s the PSD: Vector Mask.psd.zip

The script does work if you mess around with it a bit. And yes, joojaa is correct, it is a JSX. Line 2 needs to be changed to an actual destination using slashes instead of backslashes, plus a semicolon at the end. I.e., var destination = "C:/Users/USERNAME/FOLDER/"; You could also alter line 9 to options.quality = 100; if you aren't actually saving ...

Hold the Option/Alt key down and click-drag on that anchor point to create a non symmetrical corner point. Simply click-dragging always creates a symmetrical smooth point. You have to add the Option/Alt key to tell Photoshop/Illustrator to "break" the symmetry.

Here is what I do: In current PSD, get to your pattern selector: mouse over desired pattern and wait -> it will list the dimensions of that tile create a new PSD at those dimensions fill with same pattern Now you can edit and preserve the original wrapping.

Are your objects grouped when you copy and paste them? I've been able to replicate the behaviour you've found. For some strange reason, I've found copying groups brings in that single pixel line. Grouped: Ungrouped:

In Photoshop CS6, No it is not possible. In Photoshop CC, you can use File > Place Linked to link to an external file. When the external file changes, the existing Photoshop document link will update.

This should work. When you create a new PSD file, select 'Transparent' in the 'Background Contents' field in the new file dialog box. Then save as a psd. Also, in InDesign, are you copying and pasting it from Photoshop? That would create a background color. Within InDesign you would need to 'Place' (File > Place) the psd file in the InDesign file.

If there is a layer without transparency set in the Layers panel (it happens when some transparent layer was merged with any other) there's really no way you can find it's alpha property. But Joonas makes a good point, you can duplicate the layer X times till it gets 100% opaque and calculate the approximate alpha on your own.

To create text with a tight stroke like that in Illustrator, I would first create the top text, what you see in colour with no stroke. I would then duplicate that layer, and lock the top layer. On the bottom layer, select the text, turn it into outlines (command-shift-o) and give it a stroke of your desired thickness and colour. The fill doesn't really ...

Use Clipping Masks by placing the image ON TOP of the puzzle piece.

There's a bunch of ways to do this, but here's how I would probably approach it, might vary a little depending on the initial shape you have setup (is it a shape layer or a raster layer for example) but the method shouldn't be complicated to apply to anything: Take the original with an Inner Stroke 10: Now I'm going to duplicate it, and change the ...

When using the Move Tool (pointer) change the option at the top to be Auto-select "Layer", then you can use Ctrl + Click to select that specific layer. Or just check the box next to that option to always auto select the layer you click on.

You have to change interpolation method. Go to Edit > Preferences > General and change Image Interpolation as desired (Nearest Neighbor in your case). Than select your smart object and hit Ctrl + T (Cmd + T for Mac), than without any transformations hit Enter to apply. Your object will stay intact, only its interpolation method will change (refresh). Note ...
