I quess I figured out one of the good ways of how to achieve the effect: I converted my image (layer 1) into the smart object Created a shape with rectangle tool, with no stroke, filled with white (didn't matter what color actually as long as it's colored) (layer 2) I copied the image (layer 1), and placed it on the very top (layer 3), right click, create ...

There are quite a few ways you could do this. I'd probably do it this way: Duplicate the background texture Copy it to clipboard Select > All or Cmd+A Edit > Copy or Cmd+C Create an empty Layer mask. Layer > Layer mask > Reveal all. Alt+Left click the Layer mask thumbnail This lets you see what's inside the Layer mask, which is just ...

Place your art on a layer above a layer containing your paper image. Adjust blending modes and opacity to your liking.

One way I would go about doing it would be the following: Take your clear image and duplicate the layer. Blur the top layer with Gaussian blur. Create a layer mask on the blurred layer (the circle inside the square button next to the new layer button). Use either a blurry brush with black fill, or create a gradient from white to black, and expose the ...

Any solid web developer can take any design and develop it for Bootstrap. That said, it makes it easier when you take some considerations. The typical "grid" (Bootstrap or Foundation) is based on 12 columns. If you create your design to have 12 columns that will help break things down. Remember that the smaller the size, the smaller the pixel widths ...

Select the layer you want to move and go to Free Transform ( Ctrl+T on PC, Cmd+T on Mac ) Then right below the Menu bar, you'll see the Free Transform options come up. Click the triangle button in between X and Y co-ordinates. Now you can move your layer/selection at the pixel level. Go ahead and play around with it. (The triangle allows you to move ...

It looks to me like the breast is extending directly out from the bottom of the neck and this looks a bit un-natural for a woman. As seen in the image provided by Alin, there is a subtle collarbone and upper chest surface area extending from the neck before breasts. Also I think the neck might be just a little too short in your photoshop.

Well, the upper part of the body (to be more specific, the torso) is not proportional to the rest of the body. That's what's beet bothering me a little about the image. Also, the arms appear to be a little small. image source The proportions used in figure drawing are: An average person, is generally 7-and-a-half heads tall (including the head). An ...

Not knowing how you are drawing the rectangles here is what I will suggest: Where you want the first rectangle, create a selection with rectangular marquee tool While the selection is still active, drag guides from the left and from the top to snap to the edges of the selection, you should have four guides intersecting at four corners of the selection Now, ...

The effect takes advantage of the fact that the twitter timeline has a white background but a grey background when you hover over a tweet - and a black background when you click through to view an image. This is done by having a transparent image with only the white areas of the image showing - so you will only see anything when the grey or black background ...

That is interesting... I haven't experienced that one before. If you are having problems doing it that way and don't need to do it a lot, you can leave the folders open and hold CTRL and click each layer you want selected... or do what you did and hold CTRL to click the ones it missed. It should work holding SHIFT to click the first item and the last item, ...

AUTOMATICALLY ARRANGE ICONS SIDE BY SIDE While illustrator does not provide a one click auto way of doing exactly what you want, there are a series of other functions that if combined, it will get you exactly there. You have 20 icons (make sure they are grouped individually) Create another artboard or document the same height as one icon but the width of ...

I use Photoshop cc2015, and I ran into this problem. I deleted all of my default swatches (by pressing option and clicking on the swatches), and then I added all my most used colors to swatches.

In Illustrator: Draw the lines/shapes with the pencil tool; Add Stroke to the line for your desired thickness & color; Select the line, click "Expand" (stroked line is converted to shape with anchor points); Use "Delete Anchor Point" tool to remove one anchor where you want the pointed tip - going from two anchors to one will create sharp tip; ...

This is my workflow, what I found easier over time: When designing PSDs for responsive design you usually do the HTML and CSS too (plus JS), therefore you don't actually need to design in Photoshop the tablet/mobile website, you only need to keep in mind that you need it to change the layout when smaller screens are detected. Therefore you need to have a ...

The basic idea is that on a phone, the columns collapse so that you only have one column. If you have this on desktop: [ column1 ] [ column2 ] [ column3 ] … then on a phone you should see this: [ column1 ] [ column2 ] [ column3 ] This is all done with basic HTML+CSS. You might want to look at Skeleton, which is a free responsive design -ready ...

What I have read on Foundation 6 site is that the grid with gutters can scale. In Sketch 3.5 (the best app over Photoshop for responsive design) when I select "responsive web" for my artboards, the grid it auto generates scales so the gutters become narrower at the two mobile break points. For example, at 768px break the Sketch grid remains 12 columns with ...

Sorry if this sounds overtly simplistic. But if its a transparent background, you could just apply a color overlay? If its a multicolored but flat illustration, the other way around is to manually fill in the colors.

My process may yield a more defined image than you might be looking for, but it is quick and simple if it helps at all! Step 1) Create a new Layer Adjustment over your image (next to the folder icon on your layers window), pick the solid color option, pick a dark grey/blue color, and set the layer blending mode to color. Step 2) Make the same layer from ...

It's actually really quick to make something like this. Open the file, Duplicate the layer so you have the original to fall back on. Create a layer underneath the image and fill it with black. Desaturate your image (Ctrl + Shift + U). Create a blank layer above and add a gradient that you want. I did the same colour as your example. Set the gradient layer ...

I got you, If all you want is to create a line of all the "layers or frames", then this is the easiest way to do it. You have all the frames from the AE in seperate files? Open your document at whatever size you would like, with the max width being (one frame x60). Lets say each 'frame' is 50px wide, then your total document will be 50x60 = 3000px. Next, ...

Not that I have tested this, but you can create new sets of shortcuts. Technically you could create a set that has all shortcuts deleted and flick that on and then back to the original. Might give you the refresh you are after!

It depends what version of Photoshop you are using, but it has been made a lot easier in the recent updates of PS, especially in CC and I would recommend you to update to this version! Simply select the Move tool (v) and when you are hovering over an element press and hold Ctrl. It will show you distance etc. Then you can either use pixels in css or rems ...

Don’t export from Illustrator to a PSD and then import that PSD into Photoshop. Instead, open the Illustrator document in Photoshop and let Photoshop rasterize the image itself. It will pop-up a box where you can set how big you want the pixel image you are creating to be and then create that image within Photoshop. The export to PSD in Illustrator is for ...

Generally speaking, use either dither or color table reduction, but not both. I recommend you use the Lossy slider. You have it set at zero. You can crank it up. The higher you go, the more information Photoshop will throw away as it converts your image into a GIF, and the smaller the file size will get.

When you are doing print work, 300–700 megabytes is not a large file size. When you are done working, you can zip the document up and potentially make it half the file size.

I’m a few versions behind in my Photoshop and I do this kind of stuff with AppleScript, but try this: Resize to fit 2500x2500px Save for Web (or Save as JPG) in a specific folder Resize to fit 600x600px Rename the current document with a prefix of “T_” Save for Web (or Save as JPG) in the same folder Close image (without saving) If that doesn’t work and ...

When you need to get the document printed out it's better to create it in Illustrator. For Illustrator "A represented line is a mathematical equation". For Photoshop "A represented line is a combination of pixels". Getting a small fabric design document out from Illustrator and printing it to a large size wouldn't pixelate it.

Those are certainly options above, but I would think the "Colorize" option would be the easiest first step! Quick Steps: Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation Check the Colorize box, and play around with the settings! From there, if you need to do any other settings (low opacity color overlay, blurs, contrast changes, etc. etc), go for it. Here are a ...

You automate this with scripting, not actions, because you will need variables. You can just loop through the Layers panel and export everything. You can write scripts in AppleScript or JavaScript. Adobe Photoshop Scripting

Try the various blend modes found here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/blending-modes.html Also, make sure your image has the proper contrast levels so any blend modes you use (e.g. Overlay) will display the best result.

To ensure crisp graphics on most high density screens, it is best to prepare your images at 72dpi, with a pixel dimension of twice the size that the image will appear. For example, an image that will be displayed at 320px(w) x 240px(h) should be prepared at 640px x 480px at 72dpi. Although this is essentially the same as preparing your image at the display ...

Not that I'm aware of, but ff you try and keep an organised PSD from when you create it, using groups to do this, you can then use CMD click on the > to open / close all groups. Using this technique, you should be able to move layers around no problem at all. You can also colour code layers (or a group to code all of the contents too), this can be ...

I will go out on a limb and say that I believe you are trusting the 16-bit JPEG too much. JPEG format is an 8-bit image format and will differ from the 16-bit PSD file. The reason for converting a file to JPEG is to end up with a smaller file size. That in turn is achieved by lower bit depth and lossy compression.

Well, if I got your question right, it's a pretty simple principle: Create a layer with a gray background Create a blank layer over it Use the Elliptical Marquee Tool to create an ellipse and fill it with black (step 1 in image) Add a Gaussian Blur that looks just right (step 2 in image) Take the Rectangular Marquee Tool and delete half of the ellipse ...

One way of doing it Create a layer with a rectangle Add a drop shadow using the layer styles palette Add a layer mask Draw a circular a gradient in the mask (make sure it is 100% white to 100% RGB black) Group the layer. This is to prevent the next step from knocking out the background. Knockout the layer using blending mode in the ...

Lots of ways of doing this but this is the quickest I've found Right-click on a layer or layer group and select Export As... Change the scale to 50% and set format options Hit Export All... There's a specific function for exporting assets at different pixel densities in the top left of this dialog, but it looks like it's designed for people editing @1x ...

Something to check: When you eyedropper a layer, it can sometimes pick up adjustment layers or ignore blend modes. If so, option-click with the eyedropper tool to pick the colour created by the flattened layers. This also might be related to colour profiles. Ensure both documents are using the same colour profile Edit > Assign profile. If you want to ...

I think that I know what's problem here, it's not on you - it's Photoshop problem. Try to increase a size of a placeholder where you paste your design. After you paste a design, decrease a placeholder size to the original and that should be solution for your problem.
