Another option is to drop the saturation to 0 using Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation.... Next fiddle with the levels until you're satisfied ( Image > Adjustments > Levels... ). Some elaboration from Joonas' comment: First move the gray arrow as far to the left as you can without washing out all the blacks (It will do most of the work). Then move the ...

Nice question. Actually, I have a couple of tips for cropping a portrait (human figure) in a square shape. the eyes' position must be in the top 1/3 of the square. that means you can crop off the top of the head. show the background from a part of the cropped image. try to avoid that the head appears too big.

A ~620% file size reduction is asking a great deal. It's possible, but I'm not sure what restrictions should be watched, file dimensions? color depth? etc. ^^50k gif file. This is a reduction of the dimensions by 85%, set as a gif with only 32 colors in the color table. As @Ryan points out, if the text and labels were vector in nature it may allow ...

It depends on what you do. There are some advantages to 16 bits per channel images, as well as some disadvantages. Some of the advantages are: If you need to do a lot of color correction/other color based image manipulation you lose less data in transit. If your data source has more than 8 bits of color then you can gain benefit from that. Some of the ...

A friend of mine who is a photographer told me once that he converts his images to 16-bit while editing to reduce a loss of quality. I always wondered if this really had a visible effect, so i tried the following: I started out with a 8-bit gradient. In the first image I adjusted the Levels in 8-bit mode. The second image was converted to 16-bit, edited ...

This is how I would go about it. You will need an image in good resolution (as big as the zoomed part). Pardon my very simple samples, I hope you can get the idea anyway! Open the image. Make a round selection of the part you will want zoomed in using the Elliptical Marquee Tool. Once you have your circle selected, copy and paste in a new layer (one way ...

Since this is tagged as web-design: Although your purpose for these calendar images is not clear, in order to create this in the most dynamic way, I'd recommend using HTML's little know <time> element (which is supported back to IE9) and CSS as opposed to creating a bunch of variation images because it's much easier to update. Here's a basic ...

It's not possible to know what was done on the way. Just like you can not know where a ball has been by inspecting its surface. You can however use many ways to try to deduce this but therees no general process. Tough in this case its probably just using Filter → Noise → Add Noise... should do the same thing.

You can never know exactly how a rasterized layer was created. But you can always make some details better visible. You could for example use Levels. You will notice that the dark gray base color is actually a dark gray-blue. The structures in the noise and the little dots of different colors indicate that the Gaussian Distribution might have been used ...

i hope my translations are right for this: (it seems like i can't change CC Apps Language) Its in the "paragraph" windows menu -- should be something like spaces or distances and there you can change the distances between the words (first line): dont know if there is an easier way. hope this helps. sry for bad english :-/

Set your background to black, and create an ellipse Add a new layer, fill it with solid gray, then Filter > Noise > Add Noise and add a little gaussian blur ( Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur ) Apply the blending effect Color Burn to the noise layer Go back to your ellispe and apply your gradient effect ( Layer > Layer Style > Gradient Overlay ...

The opacity of the colors in your file have no real bearing on the opacity of the substrate you are printing on nor the inks that would be used. In other words, if you have a layer of 100% black set to 50% transparency, that doesn't mean you will print with black ink that is 50% transparent. Rather, you will print with solid black ink that will have 50% ...

There are many ways to do this and to achieve this effect very easy you can just use a ready-made texture (search for example for “vintage” or “letterpress”). If I wanted to make my own texture I would use photoshop and start with a new black layer on top of my image. Then i would add a low amount of Noise to it (Filter > Noise > Add Noise …) Now ...

Below is a script that should do what you want. The script is pretty much identical to the native Duplicate function. The key difference is that Embedded Smart objects within the selection are unlinked from other Embedded Smart objects that sit outside the selection. This means that if the selected layers are Embedded Smart objects that are direct ...

If you're speaking about purely graphics, it's as simple as using the Gradient Tool, preferably on a new layer, with a white to transparent background, clicking and dragging to achieve the desired effect. It doesn't get any more complicated than that. If you're wondering, however, how to achieve this in your own website development, you can do it by ...

Do whatever you did with "Hello" Select all layers except the background layer. Turn layers into smart object. Duplicate the newly created smart object. Let's call it HelloB FLIP HelloB vertically. Do not rotate it. flip it, then position it underneath Hello. Set transparencies and stuff to HelloB. For that vanishing effect, i would apply a layer mask to ...

Crop the image to just the part you need first, then, in the Edit > Image Size dialog, uncheck the Resample option and change the size to what you need.

There are two ways to make one layer use another's transparency in Photoshop. The easiest way is to use clipping masks. A clipping mask makes exactly that: make the layer use transparency of the layer beneath it. This is an example of two layers, a blue one over a red one (as you can see from the layer panel), where the red one has a completely opaque half ...

There's a bunch of ways to do this, but here's how I would probably approach it, might vary a little depending on the initial shape you have setup (is it a shape layer or a raster layer for example) but the method shouldn't be complicated to apply to anything: Take the original with an Inner Stroke 10: Now I'm going to duplicate it, and change the ...

For Expand By or Contract By, enter a pixel value between 1 and 100, and click OK. The border is increased or decreased by the specified number of pixels. (Any portion of the selection border running along the ...

You'd be best off with using a Gradient Map. Using the eyedropper (I), sample a bright and a dark red and add them to your swatches. Adding white is a good idea, as well. Open your Layers palette (Window > Layers or F7) and click the black & white disc icon on the bottom: Add New Adjustment Layer. Choose Gradient Map and see a palette appear in which ...

You can draw your own but tools like PhiMatrix make it much easier and offer far more variations. If you draw your own, the correct proportions are .618 and .382.

Also, if you have whatever you want to duplicate in a separate layer, you can right click that layer in the "Layers" list and choose "Duplicate Layer..." then choose in the "Destination" drop down - "New" and it will open a new empty document with only that layer in that same position.

Here's one (of the many) ways you could do this: In the Channels panel (next to the Layers panel by default) at the bottom click the dotted circle ('Load channel as selection') Then click back to Layers and click the 'Add layer mask' button at the bottom By doing this I got: (with an image layer underneath) EDIT: If the text layer is a vector ...
