BTW, I don't want to change only the "#3d507d" pixels, I want to change also the "gradiented"/"Edged"/"partly transparent" pixels to match the change I am not entirely sure what data you have, but if you happen to have SVGs (or another vector format), the problem with partial pixels does not arise, as there are no pixels in the first place. In this ...

Duplicate your image layer (CtrlJ) Invert the colors of the new layer (CtrlI) Apply a Gaussian Blur filter (Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur) and pick a radius that obscures all image details but isn't too high Set the opacity of the new layer to 50% (50) Flatten the image (CtrlShiftE) Open the level adjustments menu (CtrlL) Go to the Red channel (Alt3). Drag ...

Go to the Image menu, and then "Image Size". Change the Resolution to 300 pixels/inch and the height and width back to 100% each. You may have to play around and scale up your logo once you have the resolution set properly. 300 dpi is standard for printing. Go to Image > Image Size again and check that the physical size (inches) is large enough to look good ...

There are many ways to achieve this grunge wall affect, but the easiest way to achieve this would be to create the colour layers first or backgrounds (ie: in your example, the blue brush stroke, the black brush and the gray image). Then what I would do is create a layer on top of those and use a grunge brush over them in a black shade. You may want to ...

@Marcus: Thanks for your answer, but I don't get the center of the black points with the steps you have written down. However, I get the anchor points of the black circles, which is a good start. To get an automatic way, I applied the following script which gives the coordinates of the line's 4 anchor points: var idoc = app.activeDocument; var sel = ...

I don't know much about Gimp but maybe you can use my Photoshop example and find a way in Gimp to achieve this. In Photoshop, I would make an action that does something like this and then do a batch processing: 1) put the image to grayscale, 2) change the image mode to duotone mode using your new color + a gray 3) convert back to RGB mode 4) save. ...

Select your Path Object > Path > Outline Stroke Now all the circles should be Path which you can easily select with the direct selection tool (the white Arrow) getting the exact coordinates for their center points. Bonus Points: You can also doubling click on the line to go into isolation mode, making it easier to select a single circle. If you have ...

If you have Adobe Illustrator, you can do the following. Create a grid using the Rectangular Grid tool. Make a gradient mesh. Go to Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Mesh and select the number grid lines of lines you want to distort with. Use the direct select tool and grab the handle of the mesh to distort the grid.

The biggest thing you can do is add an texture to the image. Subtle bumps can often give a feel of depth. I can't see the image you posted so that all the advice I can give.

In offset printing, the only time colors are going to appear "multiply" as on the example is when there's an overprint on some spot colors. One way to work with spot color easily is to use the channels in Photoshop and bring each part of the artwork on the specific channel. That's not as easy as working with layers when creating an artwork and playing ...

Use the rectangle tool U. Draw the shape. Get the pen tool out and "add anchor point tool" under the pen tool options P. Place it in the bottom center of the rectangle. Get the direct selection tool A and click on the new anchor point and drag upwards.

There is a workaround that was working for me... After you do your pen custom shape with your pen, select "Path" from your options -instead of "Shape"- and then "Shape" on the button to your right -as one of the "Make" options. I didn't touch "Selection" or "Mask"... Then change to your Direct Selection Tool (A) and you can change Fill and Stroke now...

When you have the vector layer selected, press ctrl+t (to activate transform controls or cmd+t on mac) then look in the top options bar, there is a little checkbox that says Anti-Alias, check it, and it should fix your problem.

The magic wand tool only really works well where there is a definite edge. Polar1ty's select/contract/erase answer is helpful as a quick fix if the purple edge is even. However, I believe your best bet is to learn how to use the pen and mask tools. The advantage of using the mask tool is that you can non-destructively hide sections of the image (unlike the ...

I would suggest you use ImageMagick to do the Fourier transformations (see examples). Not only do you save yourself some time, as batch examples are plentiful and Fourier transform is built in. You could do this in Photoshop you would just have to go and find a filter that does Fourier transform (like here). The scripting interface is just a bit more ...

If they are two different selections from the same image, say the sky and the rest; when properly done they will line up with no gap. I do not know the reason for this, but here is the selection process I will suggest: Select part A, the sky, press Ctrl-J. This will create a new layer from the selections Ctrl-Click on the new layer which will load it as a ...

Here are some techniques that could help: http://photography.tutsplus.com/tutorials/3-techniques-for-retouching-skin--cms-22293 I would recommend creating a duplicate of the background, using a heavy Gaussian blur on that layer, creating a layer mask to brush out the areas you don't need, and then lowering the opacity of that layer until the skin smoothes ...

A ratio is not a size... it is a ratio, a relation between two mesures. There is no way a computer knows what size you want in a photo giving just a ratio. You want a photo 3:2 ratio. Is it 3x2px or 3000x2000px? To change size of an image a crop could be needed, so it is a diferent decision you need to make. So basicly: no. Edited: The way arround is ...

It's possible the text was created All Caps from the pull out on the Character panel. If so, select all the text unselect the All Caps. See image below. Alternatively you can use this useful resource, and copy / paste the text from your PSD file into the site. You can then convert it to the type of case (Sentence case, lower case, Capitalized Case, etc) and ...

You can delete the semi-transparent/border pixels on layer B. Select the background of layer B(which seems to be transparent) using the magic wand tool(). Go to "Select->Modify->Expand", then expand the selection by about 2 pixels. Delete the selection. The result is the semi-transparent/border pixels deleted with the red border being the ...

The one solution is you have to fill the gaps. Try it using the Smudge tool to fill the gaps.

What would have been nice is if they added the "clear"(delete) button to the right click menu. Right click then clear & done! Easy one hand operation rather then 2 hands. Just my personal choice really. In fact, just make it so that you can put just about any option you would like in the right click menu. SWEET! ^^ Adobe, please check it. :D

Here is your problem, before you export you need to create each item on it's own layer - that way you tell Illustrator to create multiple layers, then PSD will pick those up. Hope this helps. P.S:Everything else to do is correct.

I've seen others use Fire Alpaca, a software that mimics Photoshop in many ways. Its user friendly, and similar to Photoshop in tools and menus. A student of mine found it and used it for a graphic novel spread. It handles both high res pixel-based images and low-res output. http://firealpaca.com/en

For most calculations Photoshop uses every single RGB channel on its own, without regard to the other two (as long as you are in RGB mode, in CMYK mode things might get weird). Photoshop simply does a linear interpolation for each channel. If we define our colors like that (and assume a 2d gradient starting at 0 to make things easier): Starting color: ...

Please. Don't draw them by hand, we apreciate you live for more than drawing moving particles. O.o In a particle system you need to define what forces are moving the particles, gravity? an expanding force? an atractive one? Does the system have a decay time? In my opinion the way to go here is a 3d program like Blender, but you will need to work on how the ...

Now there is a tool that does exactly what you need, called CropToFit. In your case, since you need to use the same 550x800 dimensions again and again, you can create a pre-set link, as I have done below. Just click this link and it will open with the dimensions pre-set: Click here to Crop Image to 550x800 If you click the link above, you should get the ...

I haven't looked but I thought it was just right clicking on the artbord and then export as.

If you want to convert back to layers, once you've made ...

Your Smartobject-layer has a litle smartobject-icon at the layer preview. Doubleclick on that. You'll be redirected to the Photoshop Documsnt thats embedded in the Smart Object. Now you see the Smartobject as it gets saved by photoshop, so it should be easy to get the resolution from here.

Photoshop .pat files are not directly transferable to Illustrator. To move a pattern from Photoshop to Illustrator you would treat it like any artwork you want to convert to vector..... Create a new Photoshop document, apply the pattern to it, save as a .psd. Open the .psd in Illustrator and use image Trace to convert the pattern to vector. And then create ...

If I set Preferences -> Interface -> Border to Line. The canvas now looks like this: It's zoomed in, you can see the 1px line bounds around the artboard.

Has this got anything to do with your preferences setup where your borders might be set to line?

Select the "Move (V)" tool. Press and hold Ctrl key. Move the cursor over the image and you will see the magenta lines with distances between the layers. If you have any layer with full image size you will get the coords you need:

You want to use the marquee tools not the rectangle shape tool. Also remember that content aware-fill is not the final step. Depending on your image you will most likely need to manually clean it up with the clone tool, brush, heal etc. Like KMSTR mentions you should look at some youtube videos or on Adobe's site, there's a ton of videos out there.

Here is what I will suggest: Select the star shape with your favorite tool, like the magic wand, you will see the marching ants on the outside Create a new blank layer while the selection is still active Making sure the new layer is targeted, go to "Edit/Stroke" and add the desired stroke width, color, and whether it is on the inside, outside, or in the ...

To do this, I would create a circle path that will be the outer edge of your tyre. Then create a triangular wedge shape and align this so that it crosses over the top of your circle path, like so: Then, rotate and copy this wedge around the circle. Press R for the Rotate tool, and holding Alt, click the centre of the circle (it helps if you have Smart ...

Here are some thoughts that hopefully arn't too off topic. In some cases it may be better to leave out some of the information on the image and place that in the message area on Facebook. One suggestion, have the only text on the image be "$40 OFF MOBILE CAR DETAILING. Example You could add the phone number to the top right. You can get more creative ...

The key is proper contrast between text and the background. When you put text on an image, this is always a challenge. It becomes especially challenging when you have a photo like this, where there is no one particular are of dark or lightness overall. To fix that you need to layer in your own elements to create contrast. Here's but a couple of examples. ...

"Layers" is the core idea that will allow you to put various parts of your content in any arbitrary order. "Shape" in Photoshop generally refers to what is created by using the Pen tool. But I think you are using the term "shape" to refer to any element that shows what we call "shape" in daily language. You can use the Pen tool or the marquee tool then fill ...

Over the years I have developed a technique to simulate printing with glazing colors (screen printing, offset printing etc.) while working completely non-destructive, remaining full editability through the whole process and being able to easily export greyscale/bitmap masters for each color. Before we start we need to clarify what we want to do: We ...

My suggestion is to create narrow white rectangle box spanning the entire image width and place the discount info in that box. Use simple fonts, no glow or anything just contrasting color for the font. The rest of the info goes just below that white box with contact info on the bottom left corner.
