A bad news If you did not made your project as multichannel, you need to do it again. You have no real pantone information, you just have a RGB file with colors simmilar to a pantone. I asume that you did it that way because in multichannel mode you can not work with layers... you work with channels. I do not know if there is a way to work in RGB mode ...


1

No, that is not how printing with Pantone colors works. You can't simply select a pantone color and use it as you would any other color as there is no way for the printer to know that it should be printed using a different ink, it will be separated to CMYK inks the same as everything else. If you open the Channels panel in Photoshop you will see channels ...

To best see how it will print merge (flatten) all layers in the manner and order to preserve the look you want to achieve and then change it to grayscale. Printing in pantone (I understand you will use one colour?) will use only one channel.

The best website online that transforms vector graphics to icon fonts is IcoMoon App, a great site with tons of features, which keeps track of your fonts and has features like metadata, css stylesheets, versioning and support for IE. Other websites I recommend are Fontstruct and Fontastic. You can edit fonts on both.

Using the Pen Tool draw a path around the slider. Make sure the Pen tool is set to draw a path, not a shape layer or pixels. (or use the shape tools, or copy the paths from your existing shape layers. It doesn't really matter as long as you have a path to work with) To use your shape to hide the part of the image it covers instead of revealing that part of ...

JPG images can not store any transparency or clip info at all. You need to review what are you doing. JPG, PNG, PDF are output formats, this is, formats that other aplications will recognize, but try to stay with the native's aplication file formats as much as you can, in this case use PSD, because all Adobe aplications will, not only recognize it, but take ...

Based on the screenshot you posted, it looks to me like you are using a smart object. Aren't you able to delete the shapes if you edit the contents of the smart object? Control Click on the 'white_player' layer to select 'Edit Contents'

You can also right-click on the layer that you want to include in the new psd and click duplicate layer. This will open the duplicate layer dialog. Under the destination option select the new psd file as the destination. Make sure that the new psd is open at the same time as the psd you are duplicating from. Repeat as needed. I realize this is an old thread ...

Best way: Select the line/s you want to change. Object-> Expand. Now change the anchor points to make the corners pointy. :)

My way of dealing with this (i have to do it a lot actually), is i copy the layer i want to convert into a new temporary grayscale document, then convert it to a monotone using the specific hex number. then plop it back into the orig file, and just hide the orig layer (incase i need to go back for some reason, or change the color). Maybe it seems a bit weird ...

A smart object can contain as many layers as you like. If you double click on your smart object in the layers panel it will open a new document tab for that smart object that you can add layers to and edit the same as you could any other document. If you want to create a smart object with multiple layer simply select the layers you want in the layers panel, ...

I've encounter this when I try to change the dimensions as you did. I realized that if I kept the "maintain aspect ratio" on while entering the pixel dimensions it would tend to round it off a pixel or two. Not sure why. BUT if I entered the number manually for both the (H) and (W) then it would keep what I entered. Give it a go and let me know if that works?...

If you have the piece you want to turn to steel isolated, there are several ways of achieving that: First option is to create a selection based on the shape layer (CTRL + Click on its preview) then make a mask out of the steel layer (the button for this is at the bottom of the layer panel). The steel layer will have to be on top of and completely covering ...

You can transpose a pixels and data elements in a picture, but since the picture consists of pixels and not individual collections of pixels or vector shapes then the transpose would not look like your result. No the computer can not arbitrarily know what should be part of a cell and what should not be. However if you can define the cell sizes then a script ...

Ok, i don't even use Photoshop, but couldn't you get the coordinates of every circle and then move them using the x and y axis? Not sure you can do that on Photoshop, but that would be very precise. If i said a bunch of nonsense, sorry.

Simply un-check Align with Layer in the gradient overlay options. Your gradient then isn't bound to the position or dimensions of the layer itself so you can crop or edit the layer without affecting the gradient. You can position and scale the gradient while the layer style dialog is still open by dragging the gradient in the document window and using the ...

There are 2 ways around this: Rasterize the gradient layer, so it becomes a bitmap layer. Convert the gradient layer to a smart object. This is better since you can always go back and edit the gradient when necessary.

Basically, no. The other program will not check for updates (and therefore will not update) until it is moved to the foreground. You can rapidly switch back and forth by using alt+tab twice (cmd+tab on Mac) as a fast way to see the changes without having to use the mouse.

These are just guidelines, but I hope it helps: Mobile: around 320pts Tablet: Around 768pts (portrait) Browsers: 1024+ pts There are a couple of notions behind this, so, to make sure I don't give these dimensions in a vacuum: I measure them in pts. A Retina screen has different px dimensions for the same physical size, but it will have the same points ...

There are only 3 options for Transparency Grid size in Photoshop: Small Medium Large They do not conform to a pixel standard like you're thinking of them. They transmute with the display size. For example set to large on a 50px by 50px image when viewing it very large on my display gets: Zoomed out without any other changes however gets us this: ...

You can save swatches to Adobe CC library (See this link for a full introduction to using the CC Library). This library can save various assets but one of them being swatches which you can use on various Adobe programs. The swatches will sync whenever you make a change to the swatch. There are many ways to add swatches to a library. 1) Add assets from the ...

Yes. In photoshop from drop menu choose "save swatches for exchange", choose destination and name. Then in illustrator Open swatch library "other library" and point to *.ase file you created.

You can do this in Photoshop with custom brush you need to define (rectangle shape) and then play with the settings (remember that "roundness" in this case will be thickness of the shape. This is what you could get. In illustrator the easiest way (for me) would be do create few different patterns, fill objects with them, then expand and multiply and ...

Yup, yes there is. And here's how: View -> New guide layout and there you can define your grid the way you want. View -> New guides from shape, a more complex method of doing your guides, but it may suit you best. A plugin called guide guide, just type it's name in any serach engine and you'll find it (unfortunately it's not free to use - costs 10$, but ...

Have you tried recording operations (hotkey: alt + F9)? I don't know specifics of your design so I can't come up with relatively accurate answer, however I would go for recording operations you do on one image from your series and then applying them to rest of them and then combining those altered (prepared) images in one single file.

I compiled a little tutorial for you. My Interface language is Polish, but I'll translate the commands to English version, so no worries! Using Pen Tool (hotkey: P), make a path around the object you wish to select. However, there are other other options of making selections, but this one is the most accurate, effective (and thus time-consuming), by far! ...

In order to appreciate how a printed job will compare to your production ink jet print, laser print, dye sub print, etc., you will have to ask your printer for a "contract proof." It will be an additional cost that should be included in the job quotation. It is false economy to cut this to save production expenses. A contract proof is a legal document, a ...

With that image, you can probably replicate the right side of it in order to give you wider output. This is if you don't want to stretch the content. It involves few different techniques but should be fairly easy if you know Photoshop.

I assume you have Adobe Illustrator and can work with vectors. Go to www.freepik.com website and find similar banner graphic. You will find plenty of graphics that look like that (maybe different color). In Illustrator you can open the file edit text and save it as whatever you need. Hope that helps. You could also you Photoshop to either paint over the ...

Your question was quite vague, but if I understand it correctly you would want to use Crop tool (hotkey: C) so that you can crop out the parts of image that aren't needed for your design. Example use:

It seems you want content aware scaling. Follow these steps: 1. Press ctrl+A to select image/ 2. Choose Edit > Content-Aware Scale. source: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/content-aware-scaling.html


2

The easiest way to tackle this is using the lasso tool to trace the text and do a 'content aware' fill (edit - fill - content aware). Then brush over ugly edges with the same color and you're mostly good to go.


4

This cursor indicates that you are in "copy" mode which for example: if you hold the combination of keys like you did (ctrl+alt, while using brush tool) over any layer you will automatically copy it and grab it while you can move it around holding keys and releasing to place the copy wherever you want. Hope that helps.

If you want to scale the image to a specific size go to: image > image size > enter the desired size It's also important to have a check on 'scale styles' to keep the image in proportion. I hope that's what you want.

Layer mask works just fine to remove part of a layer


1

If you have a shape layer that you want to use as a mask for another layer you could just use a regular clipping mask like I describe [here]. A clipping mask is probably a better option but if you do want to use the shape as a vector mask you will need to copy the shapes path and use that as a mask. For example, I have an image and a shape layer: Use ...


1

If I understand you correctly, what you want is a clipping mask. Place your texture on layer directly above your text layer in the layers panel Alt+Click the dividing line between the two layers. Your texture is now clipped to the text layer. You can move, edit, transform and do whatever you like to either layer without having to edit or reapply any ...

One of the best ways to improve you illustration skills is to do value studies of simple (and eventually more complex) objects. You can do these with pencil and paper, special marker sets, or directly in Photoshop. If you can draw something in grayscale, then you can draw it in color. When we draw with color first, often the colors become the focus of the ...

There's a few things going on in your example. A bit of noise, high contrast, few highlights, and the skin seems to have a bit of red to it. I'll see how close I can get for you just using a jpg.

Contacting your printer about required resolution might be a good idea. There's a good chance that you will not have to print this at 300 dpi (20m @300dpi would be a whopping 236,220 pixels!), but at something like 30 or even 15 dpi. They might also instruct you to deliver a file at 10% size, so effectively a 9 x 200 cm file.

To answer your main question, I'm assuming the problem with your path is that you havn't drawn with the correct shape modes. If you have multiple subpaths you need to select the correct shape mode for each subpath from the options bar (i.e. select Subtract Front Shape to create your "holes"). Your selection should then work as expected. Creating a ...

Select "Delete Cropped Pixels" in the toolbar to save as the same format as the original. This only works if there are no layers. In that case, it will automatically save as PSD, unless you choose another format.

First, thing to understand is that learning happens or does not happen because of you. Instruction by teachers just accelerates things and helps you because of peer pressure. Dont get me wrong, this clearly helps many persons. Especially foundations of learning are hard to get alone. Jobs often are a bit repetetive so if you wish to learn new things then ...

You are going to want a vector version of any logo, as it can be scaled to any size without sacrificing resolution. So just open up Illustrator and figure out how to use it - it's easier than Photoshop IMO. For a semi-complex shape like the one in your initial post you are going to want to get to know the Pathfinder tool in Illustrator. There are several ...

I suggests you should save it in Adobe illustrator format and try to import it to corel draw. Or you should save it as PSD file and import it to Corel draw then use Corel logo trace so that you will achieve a vector format of it.

As your image is raster there is no point in "Converting" it to Corel. If for some reason he needs it inside Corel he just need to drag and drop the PSD file inside Corel. The problem is that you made it on Photoshop in the first place. A logo should be in vectors. Yes you can aply some efects later but you should start in vectors. Although the tracing is ...

Enable the application frame (Window → Application Frame).

What's the Key? As always, with any project, experimentation is the key to success. Play around with the tools at your disposal and see what fits the bill best. Making your images too large or too small obviously have their advantages/disadvantages, but in this instance you really do need a middle ground. Formats There are various picture formats around ...
