1st question : How can I check that the logo (PSD file) is set in the correct PMS#? What should be the color mode of this document? If the document (as a whole) is not showing any Pantone colors on the printer's side, then it's not likely set up with a proper Pantone color. 2nd question : How should the PSD logo be imported into the Ai layout to ...

In addition to all the good advice here, including starting with a VERY large screenshot and reducing it, I've had very good luck using a Photoshop plug that used to be called "Perfect Fractals" and is now called "Perfect resize" by On One software. They have a means of interpolating everything from line drawings to photographs, and including screenshots, ...

I found a quickish method! You had almost all of the workflow, and the 'cutout' part that you had, is what I was missing when trying at first. Starting with this image, because I couldn't find the one you're using: The longest part for me was masking out the background. You may also need to add a Black & White adjustment layer after step 2 if you're ...

It's called posterization (as it was a technique to allow for making posters easier via screen printing, block printing, or lithography). The most common ways to achieve it: use the 'posterize' filter in your raster image editor of choice (photoshop, pixelmator, GIMP, etc.) use a vector tracing tool (as previously mentioned)

This answer is undoubtedly a bit late for you, but maybe this'll be of some use to you or someone else in the future ... The reason you're only being offered 3 file formats to save to in Photoshop is because the document is classified as a 'Large Document' as soon as one of the dimensions exceeds 30,000 pixels. You may already be aware of this, ...

The first image looks like a direct Live Trace in Illustrator. In order to get better results you can boost the contrast of the image before live tracing it and after that as well. This is how the results look like: It's a good idea to clean some important curves and lines, so that they don't look so random.

You might be able to achieve this using filters, but I would actually consider redrawing the photo entirely using Illustrator a similar vector tool. You can do this using the Pen Tool. To make things easier, start by pasting the photo you want to convert, and maybe turning it into B&W and increasing the contrast. That will give you a nice base to work ...

Do you want to have a brush, which looks like the product ? Can you share the image that you want to be replicated by the brush ? How to create a new brush in photoshop ? A simple way to do it is just open the image, go to Edit>Define Brush Preset You may like to edit the image before doing it, like cropping or removing unwanted area

Select the text layer, go to Edit>Transform>scale Do you you see the text with transform pints withing the document area ? If yes, probably change text color or increase font . If no, it is out side the document area, you need to re-position it.

Either the font is too big and the text area is small or caps lock is on.

Yes, you can do both of those things. There are a number of ways: 1. Use Smart Guides and the Ruler tool. Bring out the Rulers via View > Rulers. Then right click either one of them to select which unit to display your measurements in. Bring out the Info panel via Window > Info. Make sure you have Smart Guides enabled (View > Show > Smart Guides) and that ...

If this is for print production, the white is irrelevant and can remain without any issues. White = stock (paper) in print. In any event to remove the background fill of the shape when a pattern overly is applied, simply reduce the Fill Opacity to 0% for that layer. Of course, this assume the white is not actually part of the pattern used in the ...

Most 3D software can import images that you then UV map to 3D objects. Some have improved support for things like EPS files. Shade 3D lets you import EPS files directly into a scene.

if you are using illustrator, expand the fill, it should give you the circles and the white background. if you're in photoshop use multiply it will get rid of the white. if you export the picture as png it should only have the dots with the transparency

Record with "Image Size" function used. After recording the action, in action panel, click "Action 1" -> Image Size(Double Click) -> set pixel or percentage or ... then run again

As previously noted using vector shapes is a work around for this, however if you're bound to raster graphics, apply the gradient as a mask layer to the object, it will retain the previously smooth edge.

Generate the lens flare on a separate layer. This way you have full control over the flare size, pozition, color etc.

No, some of the modes can under some circumstances be applied to the images channel. But screen is 1- (1-a)(1-b) and can not be replicated without knowing the value of the ubderlying layer beforehand. Which would make using it irrelevant anyway. The way you do this is by difference key where you chose one channel as alpha and then adjust white point to ...

Just wanted to add some detail to @scott's answer based on my tests: The following snippets are of the same file, which has a single line of text. My actual task was a colleague's 400mb cs6 file with various layer/folder styles, which omgmog warns us of ahead of time. Brahmus did the job, and though the extra detail would have been welcome, it was super ...

Difference just in selection method.. at first case you select the whole artboard, at the second you select just a object on a layer (some transparency can be dropped due threshold). The second way is good to get selection exactly like an object. It is handy in many cases. And not so when you want have just a full copy. Btw, you can consider Ctrl / ...

1) Select the Pen Tool (P) from your Tools window. 2) In the Options window, set the tool mode dropdown to Shape, set the Fill dropdown to No Color, and choose a Stroke Color and Stroke Width. 3) Click-drag on your canvas to draw points on a Bezier curve. 4) Use the Direct Selection Tool (Shift A) to make adjustments. Click curve handles to adjust curve ...

[Updated based on updated question] In a quick test on Ps CC and Ps CC 2014 (x64, Windows 7 and 8.1), Generate is working as expected including the changes introduced by turning "Layer Mask Hides Effects" on and off. The PNGs correctly reproduce the three layer appearances. From a production viewpoint, though, I think by trying to make things simpler ...

Gifs images basically have some 'n' number of layers , which will produce the animation effect. Open the .gif file in photoshop , all layers will be displayed in the layers panel. Select magic wand and click on the white area , the area gets selected and hit delete to remove the white part. Do that every single image.

It's seems like your question has less to do with cropping and more to do with alignment. If you take two differently shaped objects and align them vertically and horizontally in Photoshop using the align tools provided they will not share a center point, as each object is treated individually. Your objects need to have something in common for Photoshop to ...

Ensure your document is 8-bit RGB. (Image > Mode) If that doesn't help, hold down the Option/alt key and choose File > Save as... this will save a copy and remove any non-png allowed formatting. Chances are there's simply something about the image which is not allowed in the PNG format. However, using File > Save for Web should allow PNG saving in ...

These are three samples demonstrating dither. The set below is the above set with levels adjusted to highlight the effects of dithering. From left to right, first one is most visibly banded; no dither present. The second one is the same gradient with dither; much better. And the third one, the one on the right, has dither, and I have additionally added ...

The 2 main answers to this problem are: 1) Recreate your file as an RGB and copy all your old layers over to this new file. 2) As Adobe STAFF has said, you may have deleted some important files by mistake requiring a reinstall of Photoshop https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1311499

I was surprised when I saw this too, however it turns out to be a new undocumented feature in CC 2014 - The data is stored within the jpeg metadata, visible from the file info pane. Under the advanced tab, you can view the property tree, and all the contained datalumps. By extension of this, there is word that Adobe are planning to add in a similar feature ...

I'm not entirely sure, but it looks like the effect was based on the ellipses mapped onto the surface of an Illustrator 3D Revolve effect. The result was probably expanded, edited and given a clipping mask.

Besides placing the text over a background and using multiply to have it superimpose correctly (as tomtomtom mentions), you might want to add a level of detail and have the writing a bit distorted, where the texture is. Say, there's a crease in the parchment, then it's unnatural if the writing doesn't follow that crease. Here's how you add a Displacement ...

I'm guessing the text is black and its background is white. Add a level under the one with the scanned text, and place your background texture there. Then select the layer with your text and select Multiply in the layer blend mode (here, don't care about the layers shown it's just a pic I found online) Then if you want you can also edit a bit the opacity % ...

There were a number of enhancements to the Layer Comps feature in Ps CC 2014. Among them are all the point you address. You can now select multiple layer comps and update the positions, visibilities and appearances of layers, each independent of the others, for all selected layer comps. CC 2014 also added the ability to select layer comps from within Smart ...

Going from the picture you provided I hope its not too late. Make a new levels adjustment. Slide the middle slider left. Play around with the settings until you get a value you like. I find 2.79 works best. Select color range and then sample the white text. Play around with fuzziness until you only have the text selected. A value of 64 works ...

workaround: use a transparent rectangle with the size of your artboard. not perfect but does the job

As far as I'm aware there is no correlation between position in Illustrator and position in Photoshop. If copying from AI, it always pastes to the center of the canvas in Photoshop. I may be mistaken though.

I would suggest to use ImageMagick It is the only tool I know wich is able to convert Photoshop CC Files. You can use it to get an image per layer: convert test.psd out.png (You will get out-0.png, out-1.png...) or to get one specific layer convert test.psd[2] out.png or to get only one image with all currently visible layers convert test.psd ...

If you don't have Photoshop then I'd suggest maybe downloading the free trial of Creative Cloud and installing the app. If you only have this one off need that would probably get you through.

You could try scanning it in at something ridiculously high like 600 dpi, then resizing it in Photoshop down to 300 dpi but keeping the same pixel count (in other words - scan it in at 600 dpi; you end up with something like 4960 X 7016 pixels. Resize it to 300 dpi, but keep the actual pixel size at 4960 x 7016. You will now have an image that's larger than ...

As far as I know, you can't. The method suggested by Joonas and elaborated by Rachuru is a good option for many cases. When that isn't suitable, here's another option you can try. Not the ideal solution you're asking for, but an option that can help in situations where you have up to 60 layers in Illustrator or maybe 40 in Photoshop - any more and it'd ...

I think it is not possible what exactly you want—scroll with the mousewheel while grabbing something. You can use these methods for some convience, as @Joonas mentioned in the comments Using the Arrange command. If you’ve got one or more layers activated, you can choose Layer > Arrange to move them somewhere else in the layer stack. Depending on ...

All you need to do is choose Image > Adjustments > Levels and alter the levels within the image. Simply drag the left triangle (black) to the right to darken the dark areas and then drag the right (white) arrow to the left to lighten the lighter areas on the image. Viewing the histogram will help. It shows the ramp on the right which is all the ...
