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 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 file reduction ...

Solution: Draw a closed form; Take 'Magic Wand Tool' and click out of shape; 'Select > Modify > Expand > 1 px' and repeated depending on the contour; (create action or shortcut) 'Select > Inverse' (Ctrl+Shift+I) 'Paint Bucket Tool' click 2 times; If there is more easy for a transparent background, write. Thank you!

I was able to pull this off, but text sizing and positioning may need to be adjusted per image, depending on how much size difference there is between the images you plan on batching. Notice that two steps in my action have the dialog turned on, so text size and position can be manually adjusted while the action runs. If your images are all very close in ...

Thats's because you export it in CMYK and you paste/import it in RGB. Keep in mind that both programs (illustrator and photoshop) has to be set with the same color mode. So, go to your file in illustrator and click on "File" > "Document color mode" > "RGB Color" Now fill your illustrator file with your color #ff5522. Paste it on photoshop or just save it, ...

Copy the group and Convert it to a Smart Object. Then open the Smart Object and drag the group inside back to your original document. Not a very elegant solution, but it gets the job done fast.

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 ...

Not entirely sure of your selection method. Expanding on Vincent's answer: Using the magic wand with tolerance at 64. Produced this: Filling with the appropriate colour, produced this.

You'll want to increase the fill tool's Tolerance before using it. You can see the value in the options bar, it's 32 in your screenshot. Tolerance determines how many colour 'levels' will be caught in the filling. When you use the fill tool, you click a pixel, a white one in your example. Pixels more than <tolerance> levels removed from that first ...

Yes, just make a New Smart Object via Copy of the Layer Group. Then you should be able to modify it without compromise the original group.

This tutorial on automating your watermarks may help. Good luck and welcome to graphicdesign.se Below is content from the link by davidpickett. Watermarking is something that many people use to protect their images online. It is basically placing a mark such as a logo, U.R.L or simply your name, over a part of the photo. This discourages people who ...

I'm not sure if i got your question right, but using command+click (which is equivalent to ctrl+click on windows) it will deselect that one layer, but only if he's been selected before. You can deselect multiple layers by using shift+click but it will deselect every single layer from that layer on, you can't draw an area - as far as i know.

I would drop the layer group into a new, empty document. From there, I would modify the contents inside the smart object at least once - a forward then back nudge will do, save smart object contents, then copy the newly edited layer group back into the main document.

Have a look here. Smallest File Size Creates PDF files for displaying on the web, an intranet, or for email distribution. This set of options uses compression, downsampling, and a relatively low image resolution. It converts all colors to sRGB and embeds fonts. It also optimizes files for byte serving. For best results, avoid using this preset if you ...

I'm not going to cover the creation of the gradient itself, as that is more a matter of personal preference, but I will go over the fundamentals of this effect. In the Layers Panel, double-click on the layer that you wish to add this effect to (Gradient Stroke). Then turn on Stroke. Under Fill Type change it from "Color" to "Gradient" and then you can ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

Edit > Imagesize, uncheck Resample and put in 182cm for height and 300-400 dpi as resolution. Make sure you have the "chain-symbol" active so your ratio does not change. Then take the Crop-Tool (standard Shortcut: C) and change the mode in the Top-bar to Fixed-Size and type in 62cm as width and 182 cm as height. You can leave the Resolution blank. Then ...

you just use free transform and put the corners where you want. use guides to make a proper rectangle and the free transform will snap to them when you move it near.

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.

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 ...

A quick and dirty way in photoshop would be to open the image in photoshop, go to image/adjustments/hue&saturation, select colorize and then tune the Hue and Saturation sliders. Because you are using a png, you might have to clip out the parts you do not want to be effected and leave those parts a layer above the copy of the image with the parts you need ...

I would guess that the screen-template (your screenshot) will not be that big in the mockup itself. Use the ruler to measure the size of the screen in the final mockup. if that one is smaller than the resolution of your screen, you can just scale the screenshot up to 2880x1800px what results in quality-loss. It will be then again resized to a smaller ...

Draw your own. You can add guides in Photoshop by dragging them from the rulers. If you don't see the rulers, hit View > Rulers (Ctrl/Cmd+R). Alternatively, use View > New Guide... and key in the height or width you want the guide to appear at. If you multiply your document's height and width by .39 and .61, you get the places you want your guides to be at. ...

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 could have the layers grouped up, add the adjustment to the group as a clipping mask and then export the group. That way, all the layers are exported with the adjustment made. Hope it helps.

For the perspective, just take your art, rotate it 45deg counter-clockwise, then scale it 50% vertically. Then do the shadow. I can't see enough of it to guess at the values, but the Drop Shadow effect should do the trick there.

You don't need the 3rd layer. Lower the flow of your brush and opacity if you like, although the lowered flow alone should be enough, and just paint back in the parts of the forest you want to show over the woman

In my case I was trying to resize a large image to a small size where 12% of reduction happened... and each and every time the image was pixelated in some way in photoshop.

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 ...

I figured it out. I had set the brush Mode to Dissolve while working on the bitmap .tif image. The solution was to simply set it to Normal again. I did this because I believed the .tif was grayscale and so when I found that my brushes lacked gradation changing modes was one of the steps I tried in troubleshooting before I realized the cause was the image ...

Can you confirm the icons are shape layers and not embedded image object? That article is out of date and SVG is enabled by default in the latest Photoshop CC 2014.2.1 onwards.

If you're looking at the left side wood grains and how those disappear, your best bet is retracing those on the sketch itself. If the sketch is not available, or you just really refuse to do it, back off the contrast and zoom in and use your favorite tools to cut out or trace them by hand in-program.

As with almost anything in Photoshop, there are several ways to do this, depending on what fits your needs and your workflow. Among the Blend modes, Add is called "Linear Dodge". It says that, in fact, right in the menu. You can, therefore, place your images one above the other and apply Linear Dodge to the upper one. All of the "Lighten" Blend Mode group ...
