If you need to manually and visually calibrate your transfer curve you can use a trick gamma calibration trick. For visual calibration: Print several different tones next to a 50% line pattern then view the patterns at distance and choose the one that best visually matches your swatch. You can repeat this for 25% and 75% then you can make a curve transfer ...

it only can be done with the "new selection" option active,, when you press key M, it will display a bar with some options... select the first one and then you are now able to move the marching ants without moving any pixels

Just click inside the selection area with one of the selection tools. Alternatively, try Select > Deselect.

Create one of your spokes inside a circle with no fill or stroke (this is so you can rotate around the center of the circle) Apply the Transform effect (Effect → Transform & Distort → Transform...) with an angle that is a divisor of 360 and enough copies to fill 360 degrees.

I'm assuming the iPhone artboard looks too big to you because the iPhone has a retina screen so its actual pixel size is double or triple what you expect it to be. You can reduce the artboard size to 1/2 or 1/3 and it will look the correct size (but it will be a lower resolution than you will see on an actual iPhone!) Honestly, with the number of different ...

I don't think I really understood the description. If you want to make a circle just like the one in your first example, you could do it this way. Draw a circle with the Ellipse tool. Make sure it's a Shape. Cmd + C ( Copy ) - Makes a copy of the Path you just made for the Shape Cmd + V ( Paste ) - Duplicates the Path Cmd + T ( Free transform ) - To ...

The Lasso tool already makes a selection so you shouldn't need to use the Quick Selection tool as well. With the Lasso tool active increase the Feather value and make sure Anti-Aliasing is checked (in the Options bar). That will give you the smooth edges you need. To create a mask instead of destructively deleting pixels, just make your selection and hit ...

What if you create a mask? Instead of deleting that portion you just change the color to the lighter green.

This is called the Options panel

Open "Levels" and zoom in as close as you can on one of the incorrect pixels. Using the Black Eye Dropper within the Levels window, click on the bad pixel. It will change all pixels of that color (and darker) to pure black.

Your first example is set to draw dixels, which draws on a layer the size of the full canvas. What you need to do is set you rectangle to draw as a shape layer. With the tool selected, choose Shape from the dropdown in the options bar.

You need to work on the same layer as the circle, in this case. If you want to keep the circle for reference, then clone that layer and hide the original. Work on the cloned layer of the circle and use your eraser to punch a hole in it.

When you save a file as a PDF it should save it according to what your document settings are in Photoshop. You say it's at 300 ppi, but what is the size of the document? That could be why it is causing it to be smaller. Also, like the previous person requested, pictures would help to help us gain a better understanding why it is causing that.

You can use the 3D Extrude tool to get that result. Create your text Duplicate the text layer 3D > New 3D Extrusion from Selected layer In the 3D panel, select your object.

The easiest way. It is easy because there are only two colors. Take the quick wand tool and select all reds. Make background color black. Then ( Ctrl+ backspace). Its done!

The 3rd method on the page you posted is probably going to be the winner for you, but there are ways to 'cheat'. Whichever way you do it you could take some short-cuts, though they do come with a price. Firstly, we have to take into account that we're using vanishing point perspective. For this we need to decide on the vanishing point. For upper case text ...

I posted a link before for 4 different techniques at how to create those effects just like Google does, in an article by a Google designer. But the one relevant to this question the most is as follows: Create the solid shape(s) you wish to add tints and highlights to (in our case, the orange). Lock the layer. Add two layers above the first. Label ...

I've used astropad, which does basically what you say. It's worked well for me. It is mac only, though.

Ok, so I figured this one out myself. Here is the solution. Ctrl (Cmd) + Click the "Smart Object Thumbnail" in the Layers tab. This will give you a "Marching Ants" selection of the Object Next click the "New Work Path" button from the "Paths" panel. >> Now you can simply use the "Text" tool to create a Text Box The text box will be in the ...

Another possible method is using illustrator. You can warp every custom shape using object > envelope distort > choose something here. If you make a custom shape in your form then apply this using object > envelope distort > Make with top object. The form will then be shaped according to the top mesh or path. You can alter it afterwards. This is vector ...

Save it as it is. It will output assets, one of which will be the GIF. Just check where the files are getting saved.

Select Text, open warped text panel. Change the style to Bulge, set the bend to a negative %. -14% worked pretty well for me. For a better effect I also shortened the horizontal width of the text by a bit.

The 2 links share above give nice information. For a quick response, after you add the third anchor point to the line, with the path tool still selected, hold down option/alt key and click on the anchor point once. Your cursor will look like 2 lines creating a narrow angle. You can do this before moving the anchor point or after. It will straighten the ...

Select Layer with gradient, set the layer blending mode to Multiply What does Multiply do? Looks at the color information in each channel and multiplies the base color by the blend color.

Like CAI already mentioned in a comment: Create a Smart Object out of this layer. Copy it Whenever you edit the Smart Object, all copies will be updated as well. Layer effects, blending modes, opacity etc. will stay the same.

An alternative to the answer from Javi, if your source image includes a lot of white, or if it includes a white border, that you don't want to have to rebuild in Illustrator: Pick a distinctive colour, one that doesn't appear anywhere along the border of your image and is as different as possible from all other colours along the border. In Photoshop, ...

The two easiest ways to do this is either Color Balance or Curves. Color Balance as many functions in Photoshop is doing the curves for you. On your layer panel click the Black and White circle at the bottom and choose Color Balance adjustment layer, then switch Tone to Shadows and push up the Blue to your desired amount. You can then fine tune it using ...

It depends. Linked Smart Objects were added in Photoshop CC 2014, which are not embedded in the PSD. Embedded Smart Objects are, as the name suggests, embedded in the PSD. You can tell what kind of Smart Object you have by the icon in the layer thumbnail: If you do have Linked Smart Objects you can package all linked files and a copy of the PSD to a ...

Edit: If you make the picture B&W before hand, and use curves to get a better contrast, then change the hue of the entire pic, you can then use the below part. So what you need to do is use the Colour Range tool from the Select dropdown. Select whatever your shadows are, and then you can use the Hue/Saturation tool to change your selection.

Filling a path can make slight "jaggynes". For the pixelation goes, it all depends on the resolution of your document, remeber that photoshop documents isnt vectorbased in the same fashion that Illustrator, and that you cant get the same scaling. When choosing the path tool, make sure to chose the shape tool in the drop down menu.

Your best bet would be, if possible, to record the warping process in Photoshop Actions and apply it to wherever it can be reused.

Hi Blues – unusual question! It looks to me like there are a couple of things you need to work on: Hot Spots The fetus' skin is very shiny, so you'll need to reduce the hotspots in the image. This is a problem you'll often encounter when re-touching images shot with a direct flash – oily skin often results in big, shiny areas that need to be toned down. ...

The .psb file type is for files over 2 gb. You can use this file type to save large layered files. For large format printing you can do two things: Depending on the viewing distance, you can lower the resolution down to as low as 90. I usually try and stick to 100 for images that will be viewed from a few meters away. -You could also work on your file ...

It turns out, at least for this particular pic, that the issue was the pen tool. I was using more than one tool to do some fairly intricate selections, but they began with 'pen tool>make selection'. There is an option that pops up during that process where both anti alias and feather options are, that I completely missed. Anti alias was checked. So far, ...

If you are using the any of the Selection tools, all you need to do is set Feather to 0px and un-check Anti-alias: If you have a selection with a feather already applied to it (for example, if you use the 'Make Selection...' command on a path there seems to be a minimum feather) you can use Refine Edge (Select → Refine Edge...). Setting the Contrast to ...

The difference is in when it comes to layer styles. If you haven't added any effects (styles) to your layer, like a stroke, drop shadow, bevel and emboss or outer glow, you'll get the same results when lowering either the Opacity or Fill values. If, on the other hand, you do have one or more layer styles applied, Opacity and Fill behave very differently... ...

You can easily do this in Photoshop. Two main options: Batch (File → Automate → Batch...) Image Processor (File → Scripts → Image Processor...) Both allow you to run a predefined action on a set of files with control over saving the output. You can read more about both processes here: Photoshop Help / Process a batch of files

The stop command actually works exactly as you want it to, the only part that doesn't is the actions function key. Assigning a function key to an action plays that action from it's beginning. If you hit the 'play' button on the action panel instead, it would work as you expect. As a workaround you can assign a shortcut key to the Action → Play command. The ...
