There's no "Save Selection As" if that's what you're hoping for. The quickest way is probably to do: M (rectangular marquee selection) Ctrl / Cmd+Shift+C (copy merged) Ctrl / Cmd + N (new file) Ctrl / Cmd + V (paste) Ctrl / Cmd + S (save)

You might be able to achieve this using filters, but I would actually consider redrawing the photo entirely using Illustrator a similar vector tool. You can do this using the Pen Tool. To make things easier, start by pasting the photo you want to convert, and maybe turning it into B&W and increasing the contrast. That will give you a nice base to work ...

As far as I'm aware there is no correlation between position in Illustrator and position in Photoshop. If copying from AI, it always pastes to the center of the canvas in Photoshop. I may be mistaken though.

The first image looks like a direct Live Trace in Illustrator. In order to get better results you can boost the contrast of the image before live tracing it and after that as well. This is how the results look like: It's a good idea to clean some important curves and lines, so that they don't look so random.

Most art will remain vector. Some things like multiple nested clipping paths are painful to do. See example 1 for just one thing that would be hard to do in Photoshop, not to mention how would you edit this in PS? Example 1: This is trivial to do and edit in illustrator but not so easy in PS. The biggest problem is that you need to come up with a ...

A) make a selection and choose Image > Crop B) Use Image > Canvas Size and set the size you want and where you want the cropping to occur.

You could try scanning it in at something ridiculously high like 600 dpi, then resizing it in Photoshop down to 300 dpi but keeping the same pixel count (in other words - scan it in at 600 dpi; you end up with something like 4960 X 7016 pixels. Resize it to 300 dpi, but keep the actual pixel size at 4960 x 7016. You will now have an image that's larger than ...

In your case you need to break regularity of your letters to look more like printed raster. I worked with your current image, if you will have higher resolution, you will need to adjust effect settings accordingly.

You can do this by recording a custom Action of yourself: Opening the file Saving it as a .png file Closing the file Then you can automate this for the entire folder by going File -> Automate -> Batch. Choose the folder containing all the images and run your custom Action.

um... I would HOPE the developer is using it as a reference point and plans to code what you have designed. I would request clarification on this and you could provide a .pdf file of the website as a reference. If they are trying to slice the file for a website that is a bad idea.. You could always extract the site in an .xml file from InDesign or even ...

For printing a poster, should I go for 8 or 16-Bit mode? 16-bit color is usually overkill for most any project. Professional photographers will often use it for the flexibility it provides when editing RAW imagery, but beyond that, it's not usually something you'd need to deal with. For putting my poster on web, what should be the ppi because I ...

If you don't have Photoshop then I'd suggest maybe downloading the free trial of Creative Cloud and installing the app. If you only have this one off need that would probably get you through.

All you need to do is choose Image > Adjustments > Levels and alter the levels within the image. Simply drag the left triangle (black) to the right to darken the dark areas and then drag the right (white) arrow to the left to lighten the lighter areas on the image. Viewing the histogram will help. It shows the ramp on the right which is all the ...

I'm guessing the text is black and its background is white. Add a level under the one with the scanned text, and place your background texture there. Then select the layer with your text and select Multiply in the layer blend mode (here, don't care about the layers shown it's just a pic I found online) Then if you want you can also edit a bit the opacity % ...

It's called posterization (as it was a technique to allow for making posters easier via screen printing, block printing, or lithography). The most common ways to achieve it: use the 'posterize' filter in your raster image editor of choice (photoshop, pixelmator, GIMP, etc.) use a vector tracing tool (as previously mentioned)

As your design should just be a guideline, you can make every design you can imagine. In ye olde days, people would slice up photoshop files into separate images and then use frames or tables to stick it back together as a website. This created bulky, non-responsive websites. Fortunately, web design has developed. Every self-respecting developer should use ...

If you are attempting to create a grid just for your benefit while designing, there's an extension named GuideGuide that will do this efficiently. If you need the grid to be part of the design, I'd recommend creating a line using the marquee tool and then duplicating it as many times as you need, then using the Layer >> Distribute options to get them ...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but pretty sure this isn't possible in PS. If you're working with that much type that you need to use many text boxes, ideally it should be done in InDesign or Illustrator.

Check out Image Trace in Adobe Illustrator. I like using python and PIL, however. from PIL import Image image_file = Image.open("myimage.bmp") image_file = image_file.convert('1') # convert image_file.save('result.bmp')

First, as some others have mentioned, the logo image is being displayed at a size different from its actual size. Doing that leaves it to the browser to perform the sub/supersampling needed to resize an image and browsers aren't awesome at that. Along with that, it looks like the logo file you are using is in fact a bit fuzzy. PNG is a good format here, but ...

It's a dynamic image set to resize based upon browser window size. Some sizes will look poor. Setting a specific size for the image (then adjusting the site CSS media queries to call other sizes for other screens) would server it better. Most web site logos are not set to scale when the browser window size changes. While that theory works wonderfully for ...

Besides placing the text over a background and using multiply to have it superimpose correctly (as tomtomtom mentions), you might want to add a level of detail and have the writing a bit distorted, where the texture is. Say, there's a crease in the parchment, then it's unnatural if the writing doesn't follow that crease. Here's how you add a Displacement ...

Difference just in selection method.. at first case you select the whole artboard, at the second you select just a object on a layer (some transparency can be dropped due threshold). The second way is good to get selection exactly like an object. It is handy in many cases. And not so when you want have just a full copy. Btw, you can consider Ctrl / ...
