Start with a very loose idea: Marquee tool to quickly go over the High: Add your high color: If I press Cmd/Ctrl+Plataeu thumbnail on Layer Panel it will select it for me. Then do Select → Modify → Expand. I used 15 pixels. Notice the bottom of the Plateau and the Selection now have an offset to it: Create a layer beneath, color it, ...

You have 4 options, and as for 90% of things done in Photoshop, it's all a matter of skills and using the tools you have. No automatic "floor cleaner" in Photoshop unfortunately. At least one option doesn't require any Photoshop skill at all! 1. Use a broom before taking pictures of shinny surfaces Personally, I really like the Oskar from Vileda. It's ...

If you really are sensitive to the quality then you should avoid jpeg. You allready lost quality when the original image was saved as jpeg, nothing brings this quality back. In general you should avoid saving your documents out to jpeg unless your shipping the images off somewhere in their final form. Its hard to say wether the quality suffers much at all, ...

They look "dull" only because you compare a luminous color with an ink. When you look at magazines and find the colors very bright, they're still in CMYK-only most of the time. Usually designers who prepared these layouts didn't do anything special besides using the right CMYK values! To use your terms, yes you are "doomed". But the way you compare the 2 ...

Mapmakers use embossing to create the effect from a height map. You can use the emboss filter on a image that represent your height field. If you must use photoshop for this then i would use the: Filter → render → Lighting Effect, rather than emboss. Start with a small white brush, with a very low flow on a black canvas then start drawing out ...

In Illustrator you can Save as .svg. In the SVG option panel, for type, you have to choose "SVG". The other option, "Convert to outline", will convert you text into a vector shape. You can drag you .svg file into the browser and check if it is selectable. Then, in a text editor, you can edit the text from your SVG file, or style it with CSS.

Apparently it is a relic from the days of experimentation in the Adobe labs. It is not recommended to use higher than 10 on that scale, it may actually lower the quality of the image or substantially bloat the file size. It would be a welcome change if Adobe removed that experimental extension of the scale.

1. draw a circle 2. type the letters you want in a new layer 3. right-click on the letter layer and choose convert to shape 4. cut the letters after converting them to shape 5. select the circle shape layer 6. change the mode from new layer or combine to subtract front 7. Paste the letter shapes

First of all, you might want to start by enlarging the image normally without changing the aspect ratio. Enlarge it so that you will loose some parts of your original photo on the top and bottom, but be careful with repositioning and enlarging to see how much from the top and/or bottom you want to cut off. You will then be left with a smaller empty area on ...

1) The facts The reason you have a higher settings than 10/12 is becouse 12/12 is a higher setting. Here are some compression tests following my methodology explained here (In spanish, please use google translate if needed): http://otake.com.mx/Apuntes/PruebasDeCompresion2/1-CompresionJpgProceso.htm a) Using the compression (save as) 12/12 you have a ...

If you are willing to work a little for a realistic result you should calculate the number of sections of the baloon you want to place it on, cut the logo in the equivalent number of sections and place each individual section manually with the help of transform -> wrap, opacity and blending mode, good luck. Also, this is my first answer here so I hope it's ...

I cannot really follow your example in the image. However, the problem may be due to anti-aliasing which exists in the type and in the rasterized image. When rasterized the anti-aliasing may become stronger and more visible. If you have to edit your type layer in rasterized form, you may consider: Set it much larger type size than needed, say 144 points ...

I was going to write this as a comment, but it got a bit too long. This is something that I'm always thinking when I see questions like this. Don't ask broad questions like this. Analyze the image and divide it into smaller tasks/questions. Rather than start with: "How can I make this {complex-example}?", start by breaking it down into specifics. ...

As I wrote on the comment, unsharp filter combines a blurry (unsharp) version of the image with the original, creating an apparently sharper version. High Pass filter is an algorithm which passes the high-frequency detail while blocking the low frequency areas. When applied to a copied layer of the image it results in an image of middle gray, lighter and ...

Generally, low-pass filters blur, high-pass filters sharpen. Unsharp Mask is BOTH a high- and low-pass filter. So you: Make a low-pass filter (radius parameter) - Gaussian blur - result in a low-frequency image subtract this from original image which results in a high-pass image this is the unsharp mask Make a ramped contrast image of original ...

Ideally you would make this effect when taking a photograph of the product. For something this complex I would draw a path around each bracelet bracket. My way of doing this would be very time consuming. You might be able to just draw a path around the last bracelet and just move that down and then draw gradients to cover the flower design things (Instead ...

There is no way to convert a PSD, into a PowerPoint. What you do is you export your graphics assets as PNG to use in PowerPoint. Try to actually bring assets such as logos as fonts if possible. Consider that vector content does not always work so well in PP unless it was created in PP*. It is better if you do most of the designing in PowerPoint itself. ...

You can't. When you save to jpg you create a flat file without layers and no layer information is retained. You threw away all layers when you saved as a jpg. There is no way to get layers back. If you want to retain layers in any file, you should save it to the native .psd format.

For Illustrator The easiest way to accomplish this for any shape is to add a new Fill via the Appearance Panel, highlight that new fill and choose Effect > Distort & Transform > Transform from the menu. Add a little bit of vertical offset and you should be set. (There are actually a few different ways to transform fills in Illustrator to get ...

You may need to warp the logo before mapping it. Currently, it wraps on the slices of the balloon but not on the balloon itself. It needs more three dimensional look. I presume they will apply to logo or banners on the balloon when it is flat on the ground. When it is inflated it will wrap around and the balloon and the parts that are on the sides should ...

Don't take me wrong anithing I will write here. One thing is extra work and one thing is usless (not usable) work. 1) The 300 ppi output for a raster image is not due people want to save pixels, it is for an intrinsec limitation on a print workflow. Yea in a high quality print you can use a 400ppi image... But 700ppi? No, not really. People do not realize ...

Here is what I will suggest: Pick up the marquee tool and target the roundish shape you want to blend with the dark green large background, that is click on that layer on the layer stack Ctrl-Click on the thumbnail of the layer which will select the image While the selection is active, inside the selection right click and select from the menu "Feather" and ...

This is my solution: First of all you shloud make the floor Second we are not dealing in the photo with "dirt" but we are dealing with variant colors that give the effect of the dirt. we are not going polishing the floor as @go-me said, but it should be polished before taking your shoot. Part of getting a best shoot is to prepare your scene before shooting ...

Unsharp mask* is a highpass filtering technique. To be more precise Unsharp mask is original image plus a highpass filter. You can use a highpass layer to accomplish the same thing, yes. You can also use highpass filtering for other things, such as frequency separation, masking of noise, fog removal etc... So unsharp mask is just one implementation of ...

It sounds like you're using a White to Transparent Gradient. Going over it again and again on a raster layer will always Add to it. You need to either create a new layer each time, use a container Shape with a Gradient fill, or use a Gradient adjustment layer. As far as getting your original back, depending on what you've done since you can use the History ...

Photoshop brushes do not contain color information. All color is derived from the foreground/background color settings and any brush dynamics, such as the Hue Shift setting. Brushes are greyscale images in all instances. There is no way to alter that. You may want to look into smart objects and duplicating those to create multiple instances of colored ...

For this kind of project: 1. Not only you need to be careful about bleed, but you need to make sure your sticker is a bit bigger than the white area in your book. Otherwise it will look weird and white borders will be visible if the stickers are not perfectly applied! People don't apply stickers perfectly, you need to add a few millimeters to help them a ...

Doing it by hand, I would use dodge and burn to maintain the color underneath. First, orientate your map so that the sun is directly north (You should have the sun somewhere on the north side rather than south anyway). Then with the dodge tool start airbrushing in the northern sides of the hills you want to add. Then take the burn tool and darken the ...

I've discovered an answer to this question. I found if I set the brush hardness to 50% (varying depending on map texture) and made a simple black circle, then embossed the circle, and then set the layer to 'Overlay' a nice 'bump' is created on the map. Another screen mode that works and is a little less vibrant is 'Soft Light.' The height of the emboss can ...

I am assuming, which may not be correct, that you do not care what shows up in the area that you need to add above and below (or right and left) of the short edge. Double-click on the background layer if there is one Go to "Image/Canvas Size" Take the long edge dimension and make the short edge dimension to be the same Click on the Center block in the ...
