The image contains transparency. Photoshop honors the transparency and opens it as Layer 0. You can't make Photoshop "open it as a background layer" because then Photoshop would be altering the image as it's opened, and apps just don't do that. If you want a Background Layer you need to flatten the transparency. Simply choose Flatten Image From the Layers ...

If you really want to do this in a "mechanical" way or if you need to print CMYK + a Pantone, there's a few ways to do it. Here is one: 1) Make a duplicate of your file and keep the original file somewhere. 2) Make a layer mask to isolate the nipple image from the shadow; use a brush with a hardness that isn't below 85% and not 100% either. Don't use ...

Start by learning Layers. They're going to be the foundation of everything you do. Think of them like paper, but better and more powerful, and generally transparent paper: Open a Photo or Picture you like. It will be on its very own Layer. Now create a new layer (ShiftCtrl/CmdN) and give it a name you like. Now you have your paper... so you need your ...

Draw your path and merely set the stroke options in the Control Bar across the top of the screen. This is possible in CS6 or newer with vector layers. For versions prior to Photoshop CS6 you'll need to check here: Do paths in Adobe Photoshop have to be closed?

You can get most of the way there by applying a Black & White effect layer and tweaking the settings of the High Contrast Blue preset. Mask out anything you don't want affected. Then apply a level effect layer over the whole business and you should be set. Of course, starting with an appropriate source photo will make all the difference. Here's a very ...

In offset printing, the only time colors are going to appear "multiply" as on the example is when there's an overprint on some spot colors. One way to work with spot color easily is to use the channels in Photoshop and bring each part of the artwork on the specific channel. That's not as easy as working with layers when creating an artwork and playing ...

First, car lights don't show in the same way as your example. What is missing from your test is some perspective but also the lights need to be out of the frame of the picture, and higher. Right now your lights are on the road (eg. really on the ground!) I don't know if this is the effect you're looking for, but here is what I did to get to this without ...

The way I would do this is using a 'Gradient Map' adjustment layer. First make sure the Adjustments panel is visible. Go to 'Window → Adjustments' and make sure 'Adjustments' is checked. Click 'Gradient Map' in the 'Adjustments' panel. Click the gradient in the pop-out(Properties panel), and edit. There will be default options, but you can click ...

Everything inside a group will move together, that is the point of grouping objects. If you want to move a child group then you will need to select the inner group in the layers panel. Auto-Select will not select the inner groups but will only select the Parent Group. To select inner groups you must make sure Auto-Select is unchecked. Your groups might ...

Right-click/Control-Click the image above and choose Open image in new tab/window to see it larger if needed.

You can't get vector from a PDF with Photoshop. Photoshop rasterizes everything when you open a PDF. That is unless the PDF was created by Photoshop with Preserve Photoshop Editing Capabilities on. In my experience, those type of PDFs are rare. But it can happen. If you do have one of those PDFs, just opening it with Photoshop will show the layers... ...

When you have the vector layer selected, press ctrl+t (to activate transform controls or cmd+t on mac) then look in the top options bar, there is a little checkbox that says Anti-Alias, check it, and it should fix your problem.

The magic wand tool only really works well where there is a definite edge. Polar1ty's select/contract/erase answer is helpful as a quick fix if the purple edge is even. However, I believe your best bet is to learn how to use the pen and mask tools. The advantage of using the mask tool is that you can non-destructively hide sections of the image (unlike the ...

I don't know much about Gimp but maybe you can use my Photoshop example and find a way in Gimp to achieve this. In Photoshop, I would make an action that does something like this and then do a batch processing: 1) put the image to grayscale, 2) change the image mode to duotone mode using your new color + a gray 3) convert back to RGB mode 4) save. ...

It is possible by using a layer mask on one of the pattern layers. Make 2 layers, one with each pattern. On the top layer, add a layer mask() On the layer mask, you can then draw a gradient using black and white or even draw with other tools. With layer masks, values in a range of black to white represent the transparency of a pixel, where black is ...

I managed to understand that the Nearest Neighbor Algorithm is reversible by definition. Example: http://i.imgur.com/gKTGbry.png I just want to say that, in order to preserve quality, colors and square-shape for each pixel, you have to keep same aspect ratio. To do so, starting for example by a 16x16 image, you have to resize multiplying or dividing by ...

Learn what each tool and commands does. Use them. Practice! Start simple. Create some fake projects and have fun using the tools. If you want to start from the beginning then don't waste your time yet with the "how to make a glass effect on the letters". Start with things like "how to create a business card", "how to resize an image", "how to create ...

This is indeed a bit tricky. That is because the shape will not work if the proportion is not correct. You may need to start over if you dont happen to be extremely lucky. As @polarity first answer shows your almost right but the triangles that a bit slanted because its not quite right and the tessellation does not become symmetric as a result. Start your ...

Another way to do this, and my personal preference, is to design your vector assets in Illustrator, and then paste/place them in your PSD as SmartObjects. Double click them in the layers panel to edit.

Hum... I basicly see: 1) Grayscale image. You can crop the black and white values using levels. Normally you just adjust it enough so the graph touches the borders, but in this case you need to move that graph further away. 2) Change the blend mode to multiply and use whichever color you need in a layer or background below it. The specifics would depend ...

Your width and height are set to inches and not pixels. If i recall the cs5 max file size was 2gb for PSD files. To correct your issue you should change from inches to pixels.
