Here is an overview on how I would do it with Inkscape, which should be easily translatable to Illustrator (if not, Inkscape is free). I won’t go into the details, as it is not your desired program. Create something like this: The rectangles on the left are squares with a border length corresponding to the border length of your cube. Group the top ...

Although the question was asked about Adobe Photoshop, the behavior is due to the lossy JPEG format and would be similar with any image editor. Cropping a JPEG can make it less compressible, especially when the x and y offsets of the cropped area are odd numbers. This causes a re-subsampling of the color channels that can make the cropped image more complex ...

What you need is a layer mask. They already work like you described - black being transparent, white being opaque and everything in between of gradual levels of opacity. If your image is already a grayscale (as you said), all you need to do is to copy it and apply as a layer mask to any other layer. One of the easiest way of doing it is to simply click ...

1. Draw a gradient. 2. Convert it to a smart object. 3. Apply Filter → Pixelate → Crystallise. 4. Add a Gradient Map adjustment layer on top 5. You can now adjust the Crystallise values, if you’d like. Sure, it’s not using HTML or CSS, but the technique does use a gradient map. Gradient maps are the best. Please note that this ...

I used Blending Modes and got this in about 2 minutes... I added a picture of smoke that I found on Google - a black background is critical! Changed the smoke's Blending Mode to Screen Voila!

A quick method to add banding is reducing the color depth of an image. When choosing an optimized palette for indexed output banding will be introduced at the color steps needed to reproduce the true color RGB source. Examples: RGB source Indexed to 64 colors optimized palette:

Not really. It's best to actually purchase a font with the weights you wish to use. That being posted, you could just apply a stroke layer style to a text layer I suppose. Of course, this may slightly round the corners of some characters.

Color Dodge is a built-in "filter" (Blend Mode). See below: Select the layer you wish to apply the effect to in your Layers Panel and click on the circled drop-down menu: Choose Color Dodge Adobe explains color dodge on their site as: Color Dodge Looks at the color information in each channel and brightens the base color to reflect the blend ...

1: Whenever you download a file you can immediately make a copy and rename it according to your project. 2: Or after opening the PSD do a File > > Save As... then name it appropriately.

It would definitely be easier to do in Illustrator, since there you can use Stroke, which then can be expanded to Fill. But here's how I would do this in Photoshop Notice: You'll need “Corner Editor” script by @shadowxaf Using Polygon Tool with 6 sides () create two shapes (use Shift to align it properly): Apply rounded corner to the first polygon ...

What i usually do when I'm faced with a problem I can't seem to solve is try to find some example pictures. In your case, the circle will become more of an ellipse. You could start by 'dumbing it down' to a square, and then see what that gives you. Here are some examples:

When you create a layer mask there are two option... A mask set to Reveal All or a mask set to Hide all. The difference is the initial color of the mask.. if it's a white mask, you've created a Reveal all mask. If it's a black mask, you've created a Hide All mask. When you click the Add Mask button at the bottom of the Layers Panel it by default creates a ...

Make sure when you select the gray Color not to include any colors in it .. let it black only .. it must not appear in other colors channels. this will ensure the gay will be pure gray. they gray you must use is something like that Cyan:0% Magenta:0% Yellow:0% Black:50% for example

Create a New Document that is 1 pixel by 2 pixels.... Zoom in and color the top pixel black.... Choose Select > Select All from the menu. Then choose Edit > Define Pattern from the menu and save the pattern. You can then close the new document and there's no need to save it. It is merely used to create the pattern. Now, go back to your original ...

If your system or your application uses colour management, the RGB values of colours are converted from their original colour profile to the installed colour profile of your monitor when the colours are shown on your monitor. Typical print screen functions make a copy of the entire screen as it appears on your monitor; i.e., the colours get the converted ...

"Convert to Smart Object" Right click on original layer, convert it to smart object. Duplicate it. Happy Photoshopping!

Division by zero is undefined. Leaving image intact is the one possible solution. See wikipedia on blending modes. This is a bit problematic in some cases but using pure black burn is not really meaningful aanyway. Use multiply. Dodge is burn in reverse. So presumably they wanted it to have the same corner constraints. Clarification form comments: The ...

If I understand your question correctly, I don't think you can. 'Blur' is an operation that is executed in a piece of software, each in their own way. How sketch applies blur may be a different way than how Photoshop or Google Chrome do. Hence, you cannot export an image with 'blur'. Blur is always in interaction with what is behind it, and it cannot be ...

I don't know that it's possible with just the Fill tool, but there are a couple ways to do this. You could instead use the Magic Wand tool to make a selection then use Select > Modify > Expand... to add your "stroke", then fill it with Edit > Fill... Another way you already said it yourself...it's just a stroke, so you could just add a stroke to the layer. ...

Astropad http://astropad.com/ Turns an iPad into a little mini Cintiq. It not only shows you the canvas, but allows you to work on the tablet and changes are reflected, real time, on the primary computer. (and vice versa) Mac only though.

You could try to use histmatch script to accomplish this. Unfortunately the script is hard to get working on a windows machine without cygwin. I am not aware of any other example that would do the same thing.

See Scott's answer for the correct answer to your question. However I want to add my answer as an alternative method to solving your issue which I think will be an easier way to manage your masks. I would use a clipping mask (which is different than a vector mask you have applied to each layer) for the graphic. You can extend the base object past the canvas ...

I think the problem you have is that your lines are set to stroke 'inside' so no matter what the pt weight you wont see a result. You need to click the line style next to the pt weight > then more options > then where it says align, set to center or outside. Hope that helps. Mark

It's not a blend mode. Multiply, for example, gives you this: You'll want to do as @Scott suggested and create 3 shapes, the intersecting shape being the colour of your choice. For example, create two circle shape layers, then copy both circles into a third layer and then intersect:

This doesn't explain why it's occurring but the following two workarounds helped to some degree, but neither are ideal: • Save .ai as an EPS (although then there was white outlines around things like a low resolution/transparency flattening type effect) • Save .ai as a high resolution JPEG

If the image is raster (JPG, PNG or GIF) then there is nothing you can do. If you specify dimensions in the CSS different from the actual dimensions of the image source, then the browser will need to do some re-sampling be able to render the image at the requested dimensions. The reason for this is that the browsers need to make up missing pixels if you ...

In Photoshop, select Image>Image Size... In the Image Size dialog, first uncheck "Resample Image," then set your document width to 9". (width will change to 13.454, and resolution will bump up to 323.33). Then crop the height down to 12" and you're done.

I tried a few different tricks and wasn’t able to get things looking ideal with just the transform tool. Method 1: Screenshot I think the easiest method to preserve the transform preview is to disable the canvas overlay for the transform handles with View → Extras and take a screenshot at 100% zoom. From there you’ll need to get transparency happening ...
