While you can just add an outline, that is not the preferred way to do it. The preferred way is: set the type (and convert to outlines if need be) give the type an outline twice the thickness you want duplicate this type (so it makes a copy directly on top) set this duplicate type to not have any border, and whatever fill color you want The reason for ...

Note, you are comparing a right-lit photo with a left-lit photo, so it's going to inherently appear different. Sample a mid-tone from the image and then add a Color Overlay Layer Style.

So my question is how can it be that 12pt in photoshop look different than 12pt in web? For a couple of reasons. They are different mediums with different font-rendering engines.

First, ask yourself why an EPS from Photoshop? Is EPS really needed? There was a time where EPS was mandatory if you needed to include clipping paths or other elements. That's not really true today.

I'd hazard a guess that in 99.5% of uses such as this those flourishes are not drawn or created. Rather they are decorative glyphs found in any number of fonts. Here's one such font: http://www.myfonts.com/search/fleurons/fonts/ Simply pick the glyph you want and set it like you would any type character. If you really want to draw your own, it simply ...

there's no such shortcut in Photoshop. Paste in a plain text editor, copy from there and paste again in Photoshop. If you're on a Mac and have ClipMenu installed, simply hitting cmd+shift+v and selecting the same text should clear up the text formatting.

You can't save it in the same PSD, but you can provide a separate Actions file. To do so create a new Action set, then place the Action(s) inside it. You'll then be able to use Save Actions from the flyout menu to save an Actions file with just the Action(s) you want to send to your developer.

To have .25 inch bleeds, your document size in Photoshop would have to be 9 inches (8.5 + .25 + .25) by 11.5 inches (11 + .25 + .25), so you'll have to correct the dimensions. At the moment, you are set up for 1/8th inch bleed, not 1/4. Artwork must extend all the way to the edge of the bleed area. Right now, you have no bleed in your document, because the ...

Is there a way for me to design the website in "real" values? Yes, if you design it in the browser.

Converting groups of layers to Smart Objects does improve rendering performance in Photoshop. Once the Smart Object is generated, Photoshop will use the flat bitmap of the group as source for any operation. Therefore, moving objects or showing and hiding is significantly faster.

Is it less resource intensive, depends. Its less resource intensive in that the data is cached. But then your using more memory, ultimately the document can be on disk so its not necessarily burdening your computer. But in a sense its a trade of between more memory used versus rendering speed.

You don't want to rotate, as that wouldn't give the correct perspective. Instead, create a rectangle about the size of the wall if it wasn't distorted, then apply the pattern to that. In the layers panel, completely rasterize the new rectangle. Go to Edit>Transform>Perspective to correctly distort the image, and place it in the right spot.

If you only care about the outside corners, you could use the round corner in stroke settings. This one is in Illustrator: And this one is in Photoshop: Like I said though, this will only make the outer corners round. The inner corners will still be sharp. The round corners stylize effect in illustrator is more versatile and controllable.

As Matt suggested, adding a shape layer underneath your image would be a good start to create this effect since you can add and manipulate points as you see fit. In addition, adding an inner glow might give you a degree of control over the blur. This should give you the idea:

It means that your operating system does not have the fonts installed that were used in making those PSD files. This means that if you try and edit the text in those files, Photoshop will use the Myriad font to render the text and this will change the appearance of the file from its original look.

I don't believe there's anything automated to rotate a vertical tile around it's center. You'd have to manually copy and rotate. You could use the Transform Again function in the Edit menu, but it would still be fairly tedious. My suggestion is to draw 2 circles, then apply an Outer Glow Layer Style to the inner circle. If you need the inner circle to ...
