Select all Choose Image > Crop from the menu. This will delete all the pixels which fall outside the canvas. Note it will not delete smart objects or vector/shape layers outside the canvas. To the best of my knowledge, there is no way to remove extra smart object or vector/shape layers outside the canvas.

You are on the right track, its a bevel and emboss, but then its another rounded red rectangle on top, with no effects, then its the letter with a drop shadow inside, to make it look like its 3d. so its three elements [ letter - ? - with drop shadow ] [ smaller red rounded box, to make the top look flat] [ red rounded box with bevel] Also this is not an ...

Make sure you don't have any background in your artwork (use wizard / pen / selection tool to remove the background from the artwork). find the colour of the artwork (if it is one colour). What I mean is, for example, look at the image given by @Keavon earlier, it's like light grey. Use the colour sample tool to see what colour it is. double click on the ...

Switch to using a Fill Layer The set up: Layer menu > New Fill Layer > Solid Color… In the resulting dialog box, leave the defaults (mode: normal and opacity: 100%). Click OK. Next appears the color picker. Choose black, and click OK. Now your canvas will be filled with black, so select the layer mask of your newly created fill layer and choose Edit ...

Duplicate the layer by selecting it and hitting CtrlJ. Then adjust the new layer's opacity so that it matches what looks good to you. You may need to duplicate the layer several times if it starts very light. As suggested by Scott, you may also set the Blending Mode (found to the left of the Opacity in the image above) to Multiply on each subsequent ...

One method is.... Copy the layer Set blend mode of the copied layer to Multiply Repeat until it's the level of opacity you want. It is often best to always paint at 100% and adjust layer opacity rather than adjusting brush opacity. Of course, it depends on the end goal though.


1

You simply need to experiment with modes and opacity to get where you want to go... I, personally, would probably opt for the Color blending mode above Hue. Then simply adjust the opacity of the layer until you're happy.

I'd like to use illustrator for my web layout, with swatches, symbol and multiple page handling, but... but, I work for a company where PhotoShop is the way to interact with IT department. I use a single psd file and layer comps to handle different state of my layout. It's a bugged function, when you move a layer you have to re-check all comps but is the ...

I think you're trying to achieve a vector feel for your image, in which case, you would need to spend time creating vector from your original photo/artwork/design. Try Googling "vectorizing" or something similar and maybe you'll find what you're looking for. It is impossible using Photoshop's adjustments to images, and in fact, I think, vectorizing is ...

I recommend selecting the area you want to clear, move that selection with any of the selection tools to an area you want to copy from, then make a copy in a new layer and move to cover the unwanted pixels, merge those layers and then use the patch tool just to diffuse the slight border it'll make.

I'm pretty sure the image you'd like to recreate wasn't made using Photoshop filters of plugins. I think it was most likely created using vectors on adobe illustrator or created using some other sort of illustration. They won't have converted a photo to the cartoon style. They would have used the photo as just a guideline for their own separate minimalist ...

I don't think you can achieve anywhere to that with plugin nor effect because that is illustration. Only thing you can get closer would be build your image with simplicity.

The transparency is not excluded. I mean, the transparency does exist where it should ( between the blue color blocks ). The image is just trimmed to get rid of that extra blank space that you don't normally need. It does kinda look like you are trying to export all contents within the document, in which case I might recommend Save For Web... like @Nomadme ...

I would do just Save for Web and choose PNG-24 and make sure check the Transparency option. In order to save the margin on the right, make sure you leave extra pixel on the canvas exactly how much margin you want to have.

There is a illustrator plugin called Colliderscribe by AstuteGraphics. This will help to do just what you are looking for in Illustrator.

Why don't you try out the following: Have just 'Hello' written as a text layer and apply the pattern overlay as you want to. Duplicate the text layer Free transform it to rotate it 180 degrees Rasterize the new rotated layer Finally, play with a foreground to transparent gradient on it, or maybe its opacity and blend mode. This approach might seem ...

Okay I'm not totally sure, but this might help: Take a circular brush Under Brush Tip Shape Options, check Scattering and Color Dynamics and adjust the settings that suit your design best. (i would also recommend turning on Opacity jitter under Transfer) Scatter in a random fashion Then, using the text tool, type in the number you want on the inside with ...

Not possible to generate something like this in photoshop or illustrator using native tools. Depending on your requirements and skills you could check out creating the shape and circles in a different application or programming language and exporting that as an svg or similar in to Illustrator/Photoshop and colouring it or fine tuning it from there. I put ...

I'll give you some quick answers first, then a description afterwards for you to hopefully help you understand things better! 1) No, you can't use layers with the bitmap colour mode. Use greyscale for your comic. 2) No, use a reputable printer (if you are getting it professionally printed) or you'll just be printing it black only on a laser printer or ...

So there's Lazy Nezumi Pro plugin for photoshop. But there's one gotcha: It's for windows only ...and I guess the other one would be that it costs real moneys. It used to be free years ago, but the free version is not around anymore as far as I know. Sketchbook pro has a built in Steady Stroke, which is essentially the same thing. I think it was ...

You're referring to Smoothness and Fidelity settings within Illustrator. I'm unaware of any plug in which adds these options to Photoshop. Remember vector tools in Photoshop are not designed to be as robust as in an actual vector application, such as Illustrator.

Try playing round with the free-form pen tool, once selected there is a control panel allowing some degree of 'curve fit' similar to correction.

No, if the shape is left as a Smart object, you must convert the shape to Raster to warp - although you can still transform the shape using 'handles'. If your shape/image needs 2 or more very distinct different treatments you might consider making multiple copies and applying the effects separately and splicing image together at the end.

I work personally with synfig to make 2D animations. I've chosen this one over other paid ones because it is Open Source and has an easy learning curve.

Any number of tools could be used, and best is not defined since it depends on what you know how to use. The second example quite clearly says it was done with Processing. You could choose amongst any number of tools at your disposal. Possible tools to use are (this list is not exhaustive by no means): After Effects, the first effect is quite easy to do in ...

From what I've seen on other Dribbles and from my own experience with the software, I'd say there's a big chance these were made with After Effects. Not saying it's the best, because that depends on your own preferences.

To achieve the look from your examples, a vector based animation software could make it easier and I`ll recommend AnimeStudio. There are many other programs but it mostly depends of your skills in animating, workflow or sometimes it could be just the interface. To be more specific, if you have an idea how to create and achieve transformations like in that ...

a better workflow Instead of going to the trouble of adding a rich black to the logo, make it transparent where it should be black and save in a transparency-supporting file format eg.

I can't say if it will do what your examples rendered, but you could download the trial version of Toonboom and give it a try. Different versions are on that page, one of which might fit.

That CMYK code for black is known as True black and is not that black on screen, but different appearances could be caused by the different colour profiles in PS or ID, and of course .pdf export settings, even though you used CMYK. Also, about looking different from different angles.... Is your monitor properly calibrated? Does your monitor have that wide ...

There are web safe fonts and online font resources you can reference, and technologies for web typography using fonts change quickly and so are guidelines. I tried using Web Preflight (https://www.oss-usa.com/web-preflight?promo=web-preflight) for initial pass on Photoshop web designs, works pretty well.

If the image looks ok on your computer there's nothing wrong with the PNG file. Can you save the icon as a GIF instead, or does it offer to few colors?

To remove a monochrome background we can add an alpha layer replacing the background color by transparency. To leave the foreground objects non-transparent we may have to make a selection of the background by fuzzy select (magic wand tool) or by color selection. Hair may need to be unselected manually in addition. It is also a good idea to generously ...

That's approximately 99 and 44/100% pure photography, which in the commercial world means "the Photoshop work was no more than a half-day". There's a single hard(ish) light raking down steeply in front (from, it seems, about three feet above the model's head, going by the fall-off—if it weren't for the fall-off, you could do this in open sunlight) and a ...

There are only 2 options for Photoshop -- Pay Adobe a monthly subscription and get the current release version Find version CS6 or older either used (with correct Adobe License transfers) or as old stock some retailer has lying around. Your choices for obtaining Photoshop (legally) are not that broad. As for hardware, as @Yisela points out, there are ...

If you have access to a relatively modern computer, I recommend Photoshop CC 2014 (the latest version of the program), because of its flexibility and support. CC is subscription-based, so you pay monthly. All the programs are stored online, you can download them in any computer (a single license allows two installations, but only one device can be logged ...

If you just take a look at the picture, its too easy to do it without any tool. Here's how I do it.

Are you talking about using graphic elements in other projects? If so, then yes. • Download the pre-designed GUI elements. • Save your GUI elements as a Photoshop document (PSD) and drag said PSD file into your new projects.

Diamonds are fragmented as prisms. If you want it to appear more 3D you need to find a way to make it appear fragmented. This could be with lines such as: Or through gradients and shading like this: Yours looks flat because it is. The entire front is just one piece.

"I can't figure out how to equalize the first image so it plays perfectly with the second." Thats because you can't.

With Photoshop CS6, CC or CC2014 you can easily accomplish this with just a circle shape and the stroke features.

Photoshop makes it a rather difficult but Its still doable. here's how I do it: Make the circle as you would and mark down its centre using guides Cut into the circle with another circle through the centre. Now here if you have a rough Idea, how thick a circular line you want, you can create the first shape lets say 500x500 px and the cut into it with a ...

This was supposed to be a comment, but to demonstrate these things, I needed more space: Clipping mask is the only mask type that you can move like that. Of course clipping mask is not ideal in every situation. Here's an example with: Group that contains everyting 3 Ellipse Clipping masks. I put the first Ellipse layer in a Smart object and duplicated ...

No. It's not possible to move more than one mask at a time. You could script the movement or perhaps record an action of the mask movement, then apply that action to each mask. But you can't drag more than one mask at a time. But, as you've pointed out, if the masks are all identical... Create a new group and move all the other groups inside it. Then ...

"I want to make the gray, green and blue part. It basically is a slightly altered rounded rectangle." That is not the best way to see it. You should look at it instead like you have a circle - maybe all in one color at first, that had a stroke but no fill. Then you use the "Add Anchor Point" tool to mark segments you want to cut out of it, and delete them. ...

Here's how I did it: 1] Create a rounded corner shape with the rounded rectangle tool. 2] Rasterize it. 3] Load Selection. 4] Delete shape. (You should still see the selection.) 5] Click on picture layer. 6] Click on Add Layer Mask. You are welcome. :)

Honestly, the easiest and most effective way is as follows: Duplicate the layer into a new file. Set the Mode to Grayscale. Duplicate the layer right back into the originating file. Close and don't save the extra file, or save it if you need the grayscale version for something else. Remember to re-save your originating file. Done. Quick and effective.
