It is fairly simple. Here are some key points: STEP 1 - I first drew a random 1px line with the pentool. STEP 2 - I used mask and brush tool + soft round brush to fade parts of it slightly. STEP 3 - Then I drew bunch of dots in every corner. They vary in size. STEP 4 - Then I made a brush out of it. STEP 5 - Adjusted the brush settings ...

Diamonds are fragmented as prisms. If you want it to appear more 3D you need to find a way to make it appear fragmented. This could be with lines such as: Or through gradients and shading like this: Yours looks flat because it is. The entire front is just one piece. You need to add lines and/or shading to create depth to it showing where different ...

Draw a circle Add anchor points where you want pieces cut out remove sections between anchors duplicate the layer for each different colored section you'll want delete sections from the copies for areas you do not want in that color. Here is ...

I want to make sure my design will look on the web exactly as it does in Photoshop or InDesign You can't. The reason is that there is no one 'exact' way your site will work on the web to begin with. Every browser, every operating system, every end-user preferences, every screen, every hardware will bring to the table some variance. This is why so ...

In your brush settings (F5), 'Shape Dynamics' & 'Transfer' have a Control option. The fade you see is set in one of those sections. Changing control's fade to none will remove the fade.

By default there is no option but I know an unused combination is Shift+Ctrl+M. You can set it by going to Keyboard Shortcuts Then it'll also show up on your menu

This is one of those things that is easier to fix during the actual photo-shoot, instead of with post processing. The main reason it looks 'dry' is because of the harsh lighting (you can tell by the shadow under the plate) - choosing a more indirect, and more warmer light will make this look more appetizing. There are a bunch of other tricks such as ...

There are many ways, but I might use Clipping mask to mask out everything that is outside the circles. I made one arrow and duplicated it. I also Linked the arrows, so that they can be moved freely, as shown in the gif below. Yellow arrow is in a clipping mask with Circle - RED and Red arrow is in clipping mask with Circle - BLACK.

"I want to make the gray, green and blue part. It basically is a slightly altered rounded rectangle." That is not the best way to see it. You should look at it instead like you have a circle - maybe all in one color at first, that had a stroke but no fill. Then you use the "Add Anchor Point" tool to mark segments you want to cut out of it, and delete them. ...

Duplicate the layer by selecting it and hitting CtrlJ. Then adjust the new layer's opacity so that it matches what looks good to you. You may need to duplicate the layer several times if it starts very light. As suggested by Scott, you may also set the Blending Mode (found to the left of the Opacity in the image above) to Multiply on each subsequent ...

Make your own. Open up a new document and set some suitable pixel dimensions like 40 x 40. Select Edit → Preferences → Guides, Grid and Slices... and set your grid spacing to 10 pixel intervals, or something suitable to your size. Make sure grid snap is turned on, in View → Snap → Grid. With rectangular marquee select, one lower ...

Little surprised by some of these responses not addressing the bigger issue.... Unless I'm totally missing something here... Asking if Photoshop will or won't work with web fonts is like asking if you can surf big waves in your Honda Civic. They're not even the same realm. ANYTHING you do in PS, at some point, is gonna be spit out as an image of some ...

Start with your rounded rectangle: Then draw three lines that converge in the same spot somewhere to the bottom right of the rectangle: Now, using the pen tool, draw a shape like this (make sure the corners line up nicely). Now add a gradient to the new shape, reduce the opacity and change the angle to match the angle of the middle perspective line. ...

Food photography that looks great, generally tastes horrible. It's under cooked, slathered with motor oil, or completely replaced with non-food alternatives. The techniques that food stylists use to prepare mouthwatering photos might make you lose your appetite. :) However, if you want the best possible photos of real food, there are some great tips in this ...

There is no native feature for renaming multiple layers, at least yet. You can however start renaming a layer and use TAB to move to rename the next layer or Shift+TAB to rename the previous layer. This can be handy for smaller amount of layer renaming. Pro tip regarding, I would guess all of these exentions and scripts: In the bottom of Group Layer ...

I'm pretty sure the image you'd like to recreate wasn't made using Photoshop filters of plugins. I think it was most likely created using vectors on adobe illustrator or created using some other sort of illustration. They won't have converted a photo to the cartoon style. They would have used the photo as just a guideline for their own separate minimalist ...

Both styles, while slightly different, can be summed up as flat vector illustration

With Adobe Acrobat choose View > Tools > Print Production and click Ink Manager I don't believe apps such as Reader or Preview will allow you to verify colors. Photoshop rasterizes everything in a PDF when you open it unless it is a Photoshop PDF saved with editing capabilities enabled. There's no way to use Photoshop. In fact, often Photoshop will ...

Yes, at least when it comes to dragging out ruler guides, like you appear to be doing. When dragging a ruler onto the canvas, hold the shift key and your guide will be constrained to the 'ticks' on the ruler. So when viewing at 100%, as you drag, your guide will snap to every 10 pixel increment. You can snap to every single pixel by zooming in to 1200%, ...

If the monochrome logo was not provided by the customer themselves, it was most probably made using a Gradient Map. A way to achieve the desired effect would be: Open your logo file in Photoshop. Ideally, this is a file with transparency, but one with a (white) background will work as well. Open the Layers palette: Window > Layers or F7. Click the ...

Check and see that you are showing the transparency grid in Illustrator. View > Show Transparency Grid. Perhaps the transparency is there and you are not seeing because of Illustrator's default white "canvas". You may want to Place your .psd or .png file instead of opening it directly. This would especially be the case if you are using the image as part of ...

I just tried this myself and it does appear to export the CSS needed for the gradient (plus all the other styles needed to create your shape). The steps I took were as follows: Dragged out a shape using the rectangle tool Applied a gradient overlay With the layer selected, go to Layer > Copy CSS Pasted the code into DreamWeaver (or any editor) and it ...

Photoshop has 'Dynamic Shortcuts' for the Character Panel accessible by selecting text and reopening the Character Panel menu to see the hotkeys. This provides hotkeys like Underline (Shift+Ctrl / CMD+U), however there isn't one for 'No Break'. Here is a work around instead. Create an action called 'Apply No Break' and create a keyboard shortcut for it. ...

Yes. The similar tools are surface blur, which is mostly same and then there is the smart blur. For reference see: Photoshop Filter Effects Reference

Photoshop makes it a rather difficult but Its still doable. here's how I do it: Make the circle as you would and mark down its centre using guides Cut into the circle with another circle through the centre. Now here if you have a rough Idea, how thick a circular line you want, you can create the first shape lets say 500x500 px and the cut into it with a ...

"I can't figure out how to equalize the first image so it plays perfectly with the second." Thats because you can't. You've lost WAY too much out the windows as they are overexposed in the photo you are trying to fix. The girls shoulder is completely gone in the water reflections, all white pixels - it's a mistake photo. However if you took the picture or ...

If you have access to a relatively modern computer, I recommend Photoshop CC 2014 (the latest version of the program), because of its flexibility and support. CC is subscription-based, so you pay monthly. All the programs are stored online, you can download them in any computer (a single license allows two installations, but only one device can be logged ...
