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. My solution was to take the large png image open it in ilustrator then click in "live trace options" select "high fidelity photo" option then "expand". The result was amazing. Then ...

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 ...

Expand or contract a selection by a specific number of pixels Use a selection tool to make a selection. Choose Select > Modify > Expand or Contract.

when you want to copy/paste into a layer mask, be sure to "alt+Click" on the layer mask and then you can paste into it (or go the mask channel and active the last one)

try googling 'dark black grunge texture' then on Photoshop use selected texture and in the layers panel select Multiply or reduce the opacity slightly (10 -20%). Remember to have a black background colour.

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. You can also use Extract Assets dialog within Photoshop to use an interface to extract assets from. Alternatively, you can use a web service to extract assets (including SVG), ...

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 ...

If you have two grayscale images, then multiply will do the trick. Except you should understand, that there is a limit to that. Max intensity is 255, so if on first layer intensity is 150 and on second the same, resulting intensity will be only 255, not 300, because it's technically impossible.

Photoshop's Save for Web & Devices tool actually offers multitude of options to control slice file naming, and you don't have to reset the slice name itself. Instead, you'll want the slice file name to include the slice number instead of the slice name (you have given). On CS5, to control this, after pushing the Save button in the Save for Web & ...

It would help if you had a screenshot of your attempt, but I think I can guess where you are having an issue. Try making the color of the glow a similar color to the object that's glowing. In your example, notice that the outer edges of the glow are a pink color, not white. If I were making the effect, I would have two layers (as you did) and set the top ...

The tool Canvas Size also works for cropping - just make the canvas size smaller -, but requires a bit of fiddling and calculation, to make an arbitrary position cropping possible. First, you'll have to crop so that the anchor is in the top left corner so that: width = x position of the crop's top left corner + width of the crop height = y position of the ...

The problem is perspective, which is different in the two shots. The older image was taken with a tilt-shift lens or a view camera, and the photographer slightly overcompensated: the sides of the building diverge from bottom to top. In the newer shot, the camera was tilted up, giving the more usual converging lines on the building sides. My approach here ...

Very large format artwork, such as for billboards, is always scaled for several reasons. One is that the major design tools -- Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, have maximum document dimensions that can be too small to work the largest sizes at full scale. The common output format, PDF, also has dimension restrictions that won't allow full scale ...

You are correct that Adobe Illustrator is the better application to use in creating Infographics. I always created my Infographics in Adobe Illustrator. There are a myriad of reasons that Illustrator is better than Photoshop in this task. The biggest is text scalability. Your Infographic will likely have a lot of text and it must always be crisp. Photoshop ...

You can use this script to output all the icons in one shot. It was written for CS6, but should work fine in CC or CC 2014. Another simple approach would be to record the process as an Action, so you can replay on any image. Alternatively, with a bit of careful finessing you could use the Generator in CC 2014 to create them.

You can also do this in Adobe Fireworks. Here is an article on how to do it.

I think that while scalability, path operations, etc are true, they are somewhat trivial issues for most purposes. I do think there is a correct answer to this question. The main benefit to using a vector program, such as Illustrator, is that the end product is a vector format: these vectors are all distinct and can be pulled apart, modified, deleted, etc. ...

This is a very, very broad question and should probably be closed as too broad (I voted so). There are a ton of things Illustrator does which Photoshop does not. Just as there are a ton of things Photoshop does which Illustrator does not. In addition, there may be common areas where Illustrator is much better than Photoshop even though features are ...

Solved my problem. I think it was a Windows issue.

If problem persists, please disable the font. I removed all Roboto fonts. I found this link from Adobe ...

I think you're really over-thinking this. It is not a stroke. In most cases trying to use a stroke will not yield the straight top/bottom because a stroke will follow the type contours more. It's merely a rounded rectangle behind the type. That's all. The right side may have been manually altered to align with the O at the end of the first line, but other ...

You need to export your graphics at double resolution, say if for a standard screen you need an image at 64x64 resolution, you need a 128x128 copy of it (or even not a copy) that will be later processed on retina/high-dpi screens. But different environments may process them in different way, e.g. in HTML/CSS you need additional media queries for every kind ...

To create text with a tight stroke like that in Illustrator, I would first create the top text, what you see in colour with no stroke. I would then duplicate that layer, and lock the top layer. On the bottom layer, select the text, turn it into outlines (command-shift-o) and give it a stroke of your desired thickness and colour. The fill doesn't really ...

If there is a layer without transparency set in the Layers panel (it happens when some transparent layer was merged with any other) there's really no way you can find it's alpha property. But Joonas makes a good point, you can duplicate the layer X times till it gets 100% opaque and calculate the approximate alpha on your own.

Not quite sure what you mean, but in such cases I usually add a standard stroke effect, outside one, and rather bold. And then manually fill the empty space using pen tool/lasso etc.
