Short answer: you'll have to do this mostly by hand. The reason Auto-Align won't work for you is based on how it works. The algorithm looks for things that match, image to image, such as the background elements in a series of group photographs or the overlapping sections of a panorama. It has no way for you to tell it "this is my point of interest". Your ...

The following script will help to copy text directly from layer. https://gist.github.com/praveenvijayan/b4c367f4b903a3f9f250 note: Work only above PS cs6 Copy Script into Photoshop script folder and assign a shortcut and enjoy. Saves a lot of time.

Note: There's going to have to be some manual labor here not matter how you look at it. Suggestion Try to figure out a way to take all of the photos so that the sphere is in the exact same location every time. Possible Solution Create an action to crop the images. Start with a selection like this I used the magic wand with the Tolerance set to ...

I can only speak of personal experience, but I tend to contain my web designs in Photoshop to a single file with different layer groups, as suggested in the comments. This has the upside that all visual 'language' is identical, for I copy any layer I need from elsewhere in the file. No header type that accidentally has another font size, or standard colours ...

You want to choose PNG-24 in the second drop-down: Your dot should look like the example on the right here: I'm not an authority on the png (Portable Network Graphic) file format, but I'll explain what I do know about it. An 8-bit png is limited to 256 colors, whereas 24-bit can have as many as 16-million colors. My observation is that transparency ...

I replicated the effect decently with layer styles. It might have been done in Illustrator originally and my approach has some antialiasing problems (I guess it's all the grouping) (see the end of this post for a fix) but it should work all right for most situations. My results: Here's my approach step-by-step: 1. Type out your text and apply a small ...

It's hard to tell with out a screenshot, but likely what you need to do is this: Open your downloaded mockup Choose File->Place Find your original Ai artwork and double click it Click OK on the Open as Smart Object dialog Hit Enter to accept the initial placement of the artwork. Right Click on the layer in the layer panel Choose Rasterize Layer Now hit ...

I ran into this exact same issue a while ago, also while drawing a bunch of small icons. Turns out you can do some pretty neat stuff with the "Blend if… This Layer" slider in the Layer Style panel: Dragging the right slider all the way to the left basically tells Photoshop, "keep everything I draw black opaque, and make everything white transparent". ...

To keep an image proportional while changing only one dimension (either width or height), go to Image > Canvas Size, enlarge the canvas to the desired size. In this case, you'll have 20 pixels of space that will be blank, so you'll have to adjust the graphic accordingly. Image Size with constrain proportions on (JohnB is right, that's the lock), will scale ...

Yes with adjustment layers the two features only work when used together. Here it is: turn on ALL the links and you'll be transforming linked masks. So think of a mask as a child of its layer. The only way for two masks to transform together is if they are both linked to their parents, and then the parents are linked together.

Being Photoshop, there’s probably quite a few approaches to this problem, but only one I can think of that maintains full vector edited and scaling. There’s a few things going on here. Square is just a shape layer for the square. Nothing tricky there. The Blurry Circle group has a circle as a vector mask. The vector mask is set to subtract and also has ...

You have to ungroup the shape layer and you can extend it as it pleases you.

First, I will answer the question about the envelope, as I think this is what you really want to know. Your logic is a little bit off here. If you want to retain transparency, ie. not use white lines for the envelope, you should instead create a rectangle, then on the same layer change the shape tool to 'line', then change the Path Operations to Subtract, ...

Linking layers, via the 'chain link' icon at the bottom of the layers palette, means that when you move or transform one layer the other layer will also move or transform with it. With layer masks (including adjustment layers) by default they are linked, meaning the same - moving or transforming is applied to both the layer and the layer mask. Once you ...

If you absolutely MUST only use a single layer, AND your shapes are spaced out, you could use a gradient fill on the shape layer. With a bit of tinkering you should be able to achieve 1 layer and multiple colours. However Photoshop is not designed to work this way. If you don't know how to separate shapes into new layers it's easy: just select your shape ...


1

If by "shapes" you mean vector layers or shape layers, then no. It is not possible to have multiple colors on a single vector or shape layer. Any method to change colors will require at least one additional layer per color needed. That can be a separate layer for each shape, or a separate layer filled with color and masked - but it always takes additional ...

Double clock your background layer in the hayer paler (to make it into a standard layer) Choose Selection->Color Range Click in the white area of the image Bring the fuzziness up around 90 Click OK Hit DELETE and there you go!

It's because you're resizing multiple shapes in the first one where the second one you're only resizing a single shape. Save a 2nd file, try flattening one of them and then resizing it.

I agree with JohnB. It would still be easy with Illustrator plus your icon is going to be scalable and it won't show pixels. Anyway, the Photoshop way: (Please take note that there are a lot of ways of doing it. This is how I would do it) First, make a circle: Then, duplicate your first circle then change the second circle's color to white: Then ...

3 ways to do this: Use Magic Erase Tool in Photoshop and adjust the Tolerance (Erase Range). Or Magic Wand Tool Or Go to Select option form the menu Click "Load Selection" Again go to Select option from the menu click "Color Range" Select your image's white area with the help of color picker Delete the selected area.

The GIMP option does not make what you want - they delete the RGB information on pixels that are already 100% transparent. If your pixels are visible, they are not 100% transparent. GIMP has another feature to deal with that, that I don't know if exists in Photoshop: Layer->Transparency->Threshold Alpha. Otherwise, you could use the Curves tool, set ...

I suggest combining Muhammed Aslam C's answer with Tianzhen Lin's... So use the Action recording to do what Tianzhen Lin describes with the "dialogue on/off" switch on for the save stage. Saved me a lot of time!

You can't actually increase the resolution of an image once you have it, unless the photographer has a higher quality file that you can go back to. I would suggest getting RAW files if you reshoot because they are lossless/ not compressed by the camera.


1

If there is a luxury of possibility to re-shoot, I would ask your photographer to re-shoot at the highest possible megapixel that your photographer's camera allow. In this case I would suggest min of 18megapixel setting. and printing your image at atleast 150dpi. This should look still good from close distance. Other option is to use 3rd party plugins for ...

To achieve your desired result, I don't think Saturation Blending Mode is what you are looking for. I believe you want to apply a Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer in order to increase the saturation of your image. To do this, go to Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Hue/Saturation. This will create a single layer where you can adjust the Hue/Saturation to ...

I came up with a nice method for cleaning up pictures like this, and it works even when the background or lighting is uneven (that is, far worse cases than the example in this question) and it retains the colour. My instructions are based on the Gimp, but it would be very similar in other programs like Photoshop. Firstly, make a duplicate of the layer: ...

In these cases, you really need to speak with the company that will be printing the actual job. They will have prepress guidelines that address your questions exactly. However, they will likely suggest image resolution of about 100 to 150ppi (Pixels Per Inch) at final size. 300ppi is probably higher than required, and as you've discovered, makes absolutely ...

Only width and height in pixels matter. Resolution is an metadata instruction for converting pixels to physical units when printing.

That's a nasty conundrum. It's pretty grim when a client has misplaced, deleted or otherwise lost a key identity asset. There is a way to recover in Photoshop, since you say that the logo is a solid. You already know the PMS color, so the procedure is to isolate the bevel and drop shadow effects and make them a Black spot color, then create a spot channel ...

Ramp the contrast up with curves. Instructions: Select your image and press Ctrl-M. This will bring up the curves dialog. Move the top point left and the bottom point right until your image becomes black and white. (that rhymes!)

First you'll want to desaturate the image (CMD+SHIFT+U), this removes any color and makes it easier to achieve pure white. With your file open, choose Image->Adjustments->Levels. You'll get this: Now bring the two outer triangles in like this (you'll need to play around with this until you get something you like): You should end up with this!

I believe bmp only supports 8 bit RGB (24bit images) Things can get confusing when dealing with the word "bit" at times. By Adobe definitions..... 8 bit RGB = 24bit image (8 bits R, 8 bits G, 8 bits B = 24). 16 bit RGB = 48bit image (16 bits R, 16 bits G, 16 bits B = 48). Using these numbers, standard RGB images are referred to as 8 or 24 bit. 16 bit ...

I would have to see said pixels to tell you for sure, and know whether you're trying to save to .gif format - if you are, just save your frames as .PNGs and import into GIMP, Photoshop's indexing/GIF features are annoying. Assuming you're saving to .png: If they're not along an edge, just use the eraser tool at max opacity on the final .PNG image. ...

Just put your large, edited image in PowerPoint, resize it there, and print. I just took one that was sized in CS6 as 38 inches wide and made a perfect 4x6 out of it with no lossy issues. As we used to say in the old days when we had to do our own programming, the best solution is the simplest one, or what we used to call an "elegant solution."

Right click the Layer you want to copy styles from, and choose Copy Shape Attributes. Right click the Layer you want to paste the styles on, and choose Paste Shape Attributes.

Well, you're on the right track. The key is to use layer styles. Here's my shot: Settings: Add Bevel & Emboss. Choose "Chisel Hard" under technique, play around with the settings and use the "Cove - Deep" preset under Contour. Add a dark grey to bright white linear Gradient Overlay. Angle it and limit it so that it begins with the white in ...

If you can get a screen shot larger than the frame then there is no problem :), if you are going to reduce an image size, to keep the same quality right click on the image in the layer panel and select: "Convert to smart object" then reduce the image (Ctrl+t/Cmd+t) But hold down the shift key whilst reducing to maintain the proportions. That should keep the ...

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)
