Icons are made to not include text within it for many reasons. First, Icons could be smaller and any text in it could be hard to read Second, Icons are made to relate and connect a certain function with well know visual representation to man mind, without thinking or even reading.

Select Text, open warped text panel. Change the style to Bulge, set the bend to a negative %. -14% worked pretty well for me. For a better effect I also shortened the horizontal width of the text by a bit.

Hi Blues – unusual question! It looks to me like there are a couple of things you need to work on: Hot Spots The fetus' skin is very shiny, so you'll need to reduce the hotspots in the image. This is a problem you'll often encounter when re-touching images shot with a direct flash – oily skin often results in big, shiny areas that need to be toned down. ...

With the Pen Tool selected, or an existing shape or path selected with a Selection Tool, change the Path Operation to Combine Shapes.

This happens because your path is being imported from Photoshop as a Compound Shape. Strokes, or any appearance attributes, are applied to the whole shape. To stop this from happening you need to release the compound shape from the Pathfinder panel's options dropdown: You can find out more about Compound Shapes here: Adobe Illustrator Help - Compound ...

Color space is a model of how colors are defined. Some can define and use more color, or wider gamut. Color profile is a model to translate the colors to a particular destination, say a variety of paper and other devices. In other words, color space it relevant to the computer and the software in which you create your work, whereas color profile is relevant ...

A few things at work here: First off in your sheep picture, and any of these it works best with a two tone animal to begin with. Your sheep does have that but its the dark ears, using some third color won't look legit at all. So use that. Now as far as the technique goes I'd use Frequency Separation and then brush it in. Frequency Separation will separate ...

The two easiest ways to do this is either Color Balance or Curves. Color Balance as many functions in Photoshop is doing the curves for you. On your layer panel click the Black and White circle at the bottom and choose Color Balance adjustment layer, then switch Tone to Shadows and push up the Blue to your desired amount. You can then fine tune it using ...

Another possible method is using illustrator. You can warp every custom shape using object > envelope distort > choose something here. If you make a custom shape in your form then apply this using object > envelope distort > Make with top object. The form will then be shaped according to the top mesh or path. You can alter it afterwards. This is vector ...

You can use the 3D Extrude tool to get that result. Create your text Duplicate the text layer 3D > New 3D Extrusion from Selected layer In the 3D panel, select your object. In Properties Panel, deselect "Cast Shadows" and "Catch Shadows". Set the Extrusion Depth to 2500 (you can play with the value here) Back in the 3D panel, Shift+click all the ...

It depends. Linked Smart Objects were added in Photoshop CC 2014, which are not embedded in the PSD. Embedded Smart Objects are, as the name suggests, embedded in the PSD. You can tell what kind of Smart Object you have by the icon in the layer thumbnail: If you do have Linked Smart Objects you can package all linked files and a copy of the PSD to a ...

Edit: If you make the picture B&W before hand, and use curves to get a better contrast, then change the hue of the entire pic, you can then use the below part. So what you need to do is use the Colour Range tool from the Select dropdown. Select whatever your shadows are, and then you can use the Hue/Saturation tool to change your selection.

You need to change which boundary you are cropping the PDF to, when you open it. Use the options in the menu that is presented to you, when you initially open the PDF. According to Adobe's website: Media Box Crops to the original size of the page. Crop Box Crops to the clipping region (crop margins) of the PDF file. Bleed Box Crops to ...

This is to be expected Floating point color is not something you should be using unless you have floating point data sources. High Dynamic Range (HDR) images are a advanced imaging concept, right up there with the fact that human color perception is relative. The short answer is that this will not work out for you. The long answer is that HDR color can ...

The easiest way might be to export orthographic renderings from useful angles to serve as templates in Illustrator. Analogous to something like : http://sean-mccloud777.deviantart.com/art/Volkswagen-Golf-5-409432588 If you would rather work on a 3D object more directly perhaps you can import your textured car model into a 3d modelling package and trace ...

The centered text isn't the problem. (although it could be argued that putting everything centered is a bit bland) Alignment influences balance It's the speakers' names and credentials. You've aligned the speakers' names, but not the credentials. This makes the first speaker look positioned slightly left of center, and the second speaker slightly right and ...

The 3rd method on the page you posted is probably going to be the winner for you, but there are ways to 'cheat'. Whichever way you do it you could take some short-cuts, though they do come with a price. Firstly, we have to take into account that we're using vanishing point perspective. For this we need to decide on the vanishing point. For upper case text ...

I don't think I really understood the description. If you want to make a circle just like the one in your first example, you could do it this way. Draw a circle with the Ellipse tool. Make sure it's a Shape. Cmd + C ( Copy ) - Makes a copy of the Path you just made for the Shape Cmd + V ( Paste ) - Duplicates the Path Cmd + T ( Free transform ) - To ...

I always use a spreadsheet! While this is not what a spreadsheet is designed for, I find it really does work. Open a new spreadsheet, and turn on page gridlines. In excel you can do this on the Page Layout tab and then tick and untick the "Gridlines: Print" section: Next setup your page size. Mine defaults to A4 (210mm x 297mm) but your may default to ...

16 bit color uses double the amount of memory for color information than standard color. This means that instead of getting: color in 0-255 range, you get: color in 0-65535 range. This is obviously much more precise in terms of color resolution. As for wether you need it read: difference-between-8-bit-and-16-bit-in-photoshop Basically if you do ...

While I couldn't give a more correct answer than Alin did with his explaination, I believe you should follow scott's advice. Treat type as part of your art/design. You could stretch "Right" so it matches your "Up" design, but scaling/stretching type this way is a no go. You could either go with: "Right" as your guideline, because it's the widest, and ...

On the top menu Select>Color Range Then click on any white part of the image and move the tolerancy slider to get more or less accurate on the selection of the color. when you click OK you'll get a selection of all the white color on the image, if you press delete you'll remove all the white from the image.

This isn't an output issue – you just need to finesse the transparent area of your image. Make sure there are no grey pixels stuck to the inside edge of your transparent area (you may want to use 'Select Colour Range' or the 'Refine Edge' tool to select those grey pixels) before you go to export.

There's no way to do this in Photoshop as far as I can tell. This is however possible in Adobe Bridge using Batch Rename First, open Bridge and go to Tools Batch Rename and then from the preset dropdown select String Modification Then check the Use Regular Expression checkbox. Now you can add RegEx to find and replace the pieces you want. Here's a ...

Ok, so I figured this one out myself. Here is the solution. Ctrl (Cmd) + Click the "Smart Object Thumbnail" in the Layers tab. This will give you a "Marching Ants" selection of the Object Next click the "New Work Path" button from the "Paths" panel. >> Now you can simply use the "Text" tool to create a Text Box The text box will be in the ...
