Yes, simply use "Nearest neighbour" as the resample algorithm in the "image size" dialog (image -> image size) Edit: @CAI gives a nice tip - "It's also worth mentioning, if you don't want any distortion at all, multiply the scale by whole multipliers (so 2x, 3x, 4x or 200%, 300%, 400% etc.)"

Well, the upper part of the body (to be more specific, the torso) is not proportional to the rest of the body. That's what's beet bothering me a little about the image. Also, the arms appear to be a little small. image source The proportions used in figure drawing are: An average person, is generally 7-and-a-half heads tall (including the head). An ...

It depends on what results you want. If you want it to look "blocky" (i.e. each pixel in the original becomes a square in the result) then MrMerrick's answer is correct. If you don't want it to look either blurry or blocky then you need a dedicated pixel art scaling algorithm. I'm not sure if such algorithsm are available for photoshop, I did find a plugin ...

Another possibility, here; try drawing your images using vector shapes. There is a little time investment, but the potential afterwards could pay dividends. Start by setting your grid size (say grid line every 10 pixels, with only 1 subdivision). Turn on grid snap. Using the pen tool draw your shape. For any parts of the shape that are separated (i.e. on a ...

These are definitely made by hand. These are so called "scientific illustrations" absolutely beautiful. Check your local library or internet for "botanical illustrations" I think it's not possible to fake this with photographs and filters. Or at least not with that amount of quality.

Try this: Select the object outline, the screen you show above Bring up the Free Transform tool (Ctrl-T} You can now bring the corner handles up-down, right-left by holding the Shift key or move them freely, this will give you the trapezoid shape Now, click on the icon on the toolbar that looks like windshield wiper which will make additional handles ...

Here is another approach with the result shown below: Add a Solid Color adjustment layer above the image, enter the HEX color you want in the field as shown Change the blend mode of this layer to "Color" and you are done. I am adding this step based on EricP's comment and my reply to him. If you change the blend mode to Hue, you will eliminate the ...

I’m currently working on a project where we are manipulating photos of 400+ different flowers that were all photographed against white or neutral grey. I can tell you that the sample images you uploaded are more than likely done by hand. There are small structural details (as well as shading) for these flowers that would be present in your sample images if ...

I would like to chip in with some relevant facts.. These are hand made scientific illustrations, and gorgeous at that. It is important to understand that scientific illustration is a highly specialised field in its own right, and photographs can in fact not replace them. This might seem counterintuitive, but I will try to explain. Scientific illustrations ...

I've worked on a solution for this. I started with an image like this: Made a copy of a portion of the yellow wall and moved the layer on top: Set the Blending Mode to Darken and add a Black and White adjustment layer - and Alt or Option click the line between the Black and White layer and the one below create a clipping mask Layers: Black ...

If I understand correctly you'd like to either move it or manipulate the selection. Moving it is as easy as staying on the marquee tool and dragging the circle where you would like it. If you need to manipulate it a bit after the fact, then you can choose "transform selection" which is located under the "Select" menu at the top. Hope this helps.

You can achieve this using a combination of smart filters & clipping masks. First create all the shapes you want to use as blurred areas and add them to a new group With the background image you want blurred selected go to Filters -> Convert for Smart Filter. This will convert the image to a smart object and allow you to apply filters ...

Lots of options, and while I do really like Yorik's channel approach which will work for this image, let me offer you what I believe is the easiest and probably best solution, which will work on all images not just yours: Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer, go to Reds, lightness to 0: Photo from Unsplash.com: ...

The effect takes advantage of the fact that the twitter timeline has a white background but a grey background when you hover over a tweet - and a black background when you click through to view an image. This is done by having a transparent image with only the white areas of the image showing - so you will only see anything when the grey or black background ...

If you have to use the same image for both sides and one is being mirrored what you want is an ambigram. From Wikipedia An ambigram is a word, art form or other symbolic representation whose elements retain meaning when viewed or interpreted from a different direction, perspective, or orientation. There are plenty of online generators and tutorials ...

Illustrator can import files as Linked Objects. Rather than embedding the raster image in the illustrator file (eg. by copy/pasting it in), a Linked object points to another file within your file system. This separate file can be edited and updated independently of Illustrator. To import a linked file: In Illustrator, select File > Place and select the ...

If you are looking to simply increase the size relative to other elements and wish to maintain the "pixel art look" then the nearest neighbour method already suggested is the way to achieve that. If that isn't what you are looking for, there are some advanced scaling algorithms specifically designed for pixel art when you don't want to try maintian ...

One good option: If your desired object is on its own layer (which is often is, if you've built the layout yourself in PS), you can use the Layer > New Layer Based Slice function, then Save for Web. In the first subsequent dialog box, choose your file format and settings. In the second dialog box, select "Selected Slices" from the bottom drop down menu: ...

You can easily do this with the built in script 'Export Layers to Files'. Just go to File -> Scripts -> Export Layers to Files. There is an option to trim layers, which will export each layer at a size that fits its content, or at the size of the original document if it's turned off. As far as I'm aware you can't do this specifically for smart ...

You can turn a shape to a text area by selecting the shape layer and clicking on the path with the type tool. Im not sure if the line you already have is a shape/path or not, but all you need to do is (with the pen tool) draw the shape to exactly how you want the text area to be. Select the type tool and click on the shape you just created. That will turn ...

The exported file needs to be converted to sRGB either before exporting or during the export if you are using "Save for Web" option. If you are using that option you will see Convert to sRGB with a check box next to it, put a check mark there and then save it. If you are simply saving it as JPEG, then before saving it: Go to Edit/Convert to Profile Choose ...

You may need to settle for increased or decreased luminance of the area covered by the rectangle. Blur requires pixel-pushing. If luminance variation is acceptable, do the following: Put a new layer above the background Fill it with either white or black Change its opacity to suit the need and taste In the sample below, the white rectangle has 50% ...

You can do it this way without duplicating the phone layer: select the phone layer subtract the circle layer from the phone layer selection via ctrl+shift+click(win)/cmd+alt+click(mac) on the circle layer in the layer panel deselect the top part of the phone you want to be visible invert the selection create a layer mask on the phone layer

If you have the choice and can avoid using the magic wand tool, don't use it. It can work well on big images but not so much on smaller ones. Since you simply want to change the image from red to black, you could simply: Put that image in GRAYSCALE COLOR MODE Then use the LEVELS (menu Image > Adjustments > levels) Then use the black color picker and click ...

Go-Junta has a good generalized answer, but for this specific image: open the channels palette delete the red and green channels set the image mode to greyscale set the image mode the RGB again (optional)

You can also: Convert your image to grayscale mode Use the levels to make your black density at 100% (Menu Image > Adjustments > Levels) and then select the black color picker and then use it to click on the music note (e.g. the color at 100%). Finally, go in the image > mode > duotone, select Monotone and insert your Hex color. Then convert back to ...

It should be simple to do if you build your layers like this. top White text Orange layer set to multiply Levels layer (if needed) Black and white image bottom If levels are needed, just push the contrast and maybe make the black more grey if you want it to appear faded.

With the limited amount of information that you have provided, I have what should be a simple solution. Create a new layer above your existing gradient with whatever new color you want, and set the blending mode to color (it's in the layers panel at the top left). Then your gradient magically recolors itself!

I didn't have Vag Rounded, but here is a quick mock up with Arial Rounded. While not 100% this took 2 minutes and should be a good starting point for you to adjust until it's perfect. Just double click you text layer and add these styles. The red and blue text also have a slight gradient on them.

I created this example as per the settings below. Essentially a large faint drop shadow with a smaller but darker drop shadow over the top.
