At the moment I don't believe there are any, but Affinity has it on their list of features to implement. They're both (Affinity Designer [AI Replacement] and Affinity Photo [PS Replacement]) under development and the creators have been doing an excellent job adding new features and fixing bugs regularly. This is the most recent thread on Smart Objects I'm ...

Here's the answer: Make a layer with the stuff you want in the image. Make a selection for the desired alpha channel. Make the selection a "layer mask" for the image layer. Right click the layer mask and "Apply layer mask". Now the magic starts: Go to "Layer", and at the bottom: "Matting", then choose "Remove black matte". You are welcome!

They actually added this feature in the newest installment of Photoshop CC (14.2). You can see more info: See linked smart objects I am aware of this feature but have not yet used it for anything. Still you should be using indesign. Note,you probably need to script this anyway as you have many legacy files that need updating. PS: Its amazing how long it ...

You should really be using Illustrator for this if you plan to send it to the printer because your files will be huge but you didnt mention if this was for web or print. I would suggest making them vector if you can that way if you ever need to use them again but in a different size you can resize without loosing any quality. Since that wasnt your ...

Start with your object set as white on a layer by itself against a black background layer. Duplicate the shape, and on the duplicate run Filter > Blur > Radial Blur set to zoom. Then place your duplicate (un-blurred) layer above the blur layer. You can't accomplish this with the canned Layer Styles.

The latest version of Illustrator (Illustrator CC 2014 as of this writing) includes a button to “unembed” embedded assets, which lets you save to PSD at native resolution. When you’ve selected your image, the Unembed button appears up in the toolbar next to Image Trace/Edit Original.

I do option A. I keep one file with the whole image. Then, I open that file in Photoshop, save it with "CUT" in the file name as a .PSD. I draw a clipping path using the pen tool around the whole object, or just part if I know exactly where I want it to stick out. I save the path, select it and create a layer mask. I place the original image in my InDesign ...

Randy has the right idea using slices but it's even easier. Say you have four images in a row. Separate each with a vertical guide line and then, using the slice tool, click on "Slices From Guides" (in the slices toolbar). Then save to web. It will create four separate files with each slice. You'll find them in that images folder.


2

It is essentially A. You place the photo, determine the position of desired crop, then edit the photo in Photoshop so it is cropped where desired. For print production, and using InDesign+Photoshop, the image would just be saved with transparency as .psd files and placed into InDesign. On occasion, using 2 versions of the same photo can come in handy. ...

If I would be asked to do it, I would go for the solution A you mentioned. It's not a problem to make some adjustments in the psd file. About the standard file format I think there is not one for all, every format has its pro and cons sometimes you choose one other times another as needed.

There are many ways to do just about anything in Photoshop. Two approaches that I would try would be: Duplicate the original, convert to CMYK and apply the yellow channel to the black channel in Multiply mode (Image > Apply Image). You could also try simply copying the yellow channel and pasting it on a new layer, using Darken or Darker Color as a blend ...

Since you are using the image for an app, I assume you want to save the image in one of the web supported raster graphic formats (JPG, PNG or GIF). If that is the case and you are using either "Save for Web" either in AI or PS, then you do the re-sizing directly on the "Save for Web" window by plugging the desired dimensions. Select file->Save for Web ...

For Photoshop... Draw the square. Duplicate the square layer In the Properties Panel set the corner rounding to 50% the width of the square for the duplicate layer.

I am a designer and front-end engineer on one design studio, I just used Markly to do app design spec, I think it's really cool photoshop spec tool with so many creative functions like smart measure, update spec automatically etc. I inadvertently discovered this post, so I think I should recommend it.

It's something to do with Layer -> Type -> Convert to point / Convert to paragraph. I changed to 'paragraph' to try and make the text behave like a standard Indesign box, but I had this same problem. It turns out, if you just use spaces to push text to the next line rather than line-breaks you can achieve the same thing. Works better for me now.

Depending on the position you are aiming at, creating the resumé in Photoshop may disqualify you (for other positions, it may be a plus, of course). PDF is NOT an image; PDF is a complex document format, and whatever text you have should really not be an image, but, yeah, text. Among the Adobe tools, the tool of choice would be Illustrator (for 1 to 2 ...

I'd probably just use the magic wand, experimenting with settings of how many pixels it is tolerant of to select those areas while holding shift to get multiple selections. Then once all is selected experiment with curves, levels or brightness to get the look you want.

sRGB is the correct color profile to use, but there are things you need to do in creating the images if they're going to video. Staying within broadcast standards are the safest way to go, but that's an expensive setup to work with. For a simple, practical workflow, do this: Set your black floor to RGB 25/25/25. Don't go below that. Set your white ...

I am not sure if this will solve your problem, but I hope it gives you a metodology to solve it. 1) You need to define what "looks really bad" means. Contrast. Too much contrast? Too low? Color. Has the color shifted? Problems with saturation? Do they look pale? Or oversaturated? Does the problem occur with all colors? Or just with some vibrating colors ...

You can make the Photoshop PDF to have the smallest file size, but also, with Acrobat you can then process the file again and it'll make it smaller, but beware that doing this will preserve the crisp in the fonts but you'll lose quality on images. You can also follow this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzD4cVaTQSw

I'd suggest you don't use Photoshop. There's no viable reason one needs Photoshop for a resumé/CV. Using InDesign or Illustrator will inherently create faster loading PDFs (provided you are creating overly intricate artwork on the resume.) Even using Word or Pages may be better than Photoshop. If you must use Photoshop, I would save each page (although a ...

If you can't figure out what's wrong and you don't mind losing all your settings, you can try resetting all of your Photoshop settings by: Quitting Photoshop Opening it back up while holding Command, Option, and Shift at the same time and holding them until Photoshop brings up the following question.

I have not seing Pagemaker in 15 years. I have no idea if you have spot colors paletes there. Doing the PDF export ot Photoshop has no sense becouse you will end with a cmyk or rgb file.

First, I would not recommend providing 50 variations for font choices because that would cause too many issues. I think it would be best to only provide 5 choices at max.

Most font management software have this functionality. For example I am using NexusFont and it can do this. Off course not a hard thing to do with Photoshop either. A word of warning, not many people really enjoy shifting 50 fonts. Ive occasionally experimented with peoples sensibilities by giving THEM the choice. And most of the time they get shocked when ...

You learn practical skills by doing them. There's lots of hard evidence that procedural skills learnt from doing are different and deeper than theoretical knowledge from reading. These then expand your creative possibilities through pushing these new skills, experimenting with them, and creating things with them. So, if it's an area you're new to, do it, ...

I would recommend doing them obviously; Furthermore the way you really become an expert on a specific Photoshop/illustrator/any software is by getting the skill you learned on any tutorial and applying it on something completely different that you though of, because following a tutorial in a simple "monkey see monkey do" matter anyone can do but using the ...

The easiest way might be to: Make a background layer fill it with white. With your line drawn character on the top layer, flatten the image. Magic Wand the white on the outside of the character and hit delete. This should leave you with the white character! Hope that works!

The basic answer you already know... Do it by hand. That's how everyone does it if they are trying to fill brush strokes. You can try the flood fill tool but that often requires you to work on the same layer as your key line (Black outline) and it has a tendency to feather edges requiring you to manually correct those anyway. Often what is done is that ...

I think the best solution for your need is to use masks. Just put a background and select with mask the drawing, delete the background... And you have the draw with background. Is what you need or I'm wrong?

As suggested by Scott, the the Polygonal Lasso Tool allows you to select the vertices of a polygon region to select, allowing the edge to be easily selected.

Create a text box (click and drag) with the type tool. The text will still be on one line when you paste into the text box but you will have more control over the width of the paragraph text box. Do note that Photoshop is not intended to be a layout program like InDesign.

Do you usually use InDesign? Photoshop's text boxes are very different. You have to create the shape you want, then just use text as a separate object. I'm sure there is a much easier way, but this is how I would do it! p.s. I have to add that it drives me insane that the separating lines aren't the same angle! Select the Rounded Rectangle object and ...

Use the Shape Tools to draw a rounded rectangle. Use the Pen Tool and it's options to square-off one end. Use the Direct Selection Tool to move an anchor on the square end so it's at an angle. Duplicate and flip the shape layer you have and use the Direct Selection Tool to alter the angle. Duplicate the shape layer again, square off the other side, and ...

Make the object with the shape tool. Either use the pen tool or make a new shape and then skew it (Edit -> Transform -> Skew) to get the angled look and then apply it as a clipping mask over the first shape. Apply a stroke using a layer effect.

I have thought of 3 different techniques that you can try. The easiest way to get a masonry layout is by using code. I would look into using the masonry plugin by: http://masonry.desandro.com/.

Desktop Wallpapers can't have transparent backgrounds. They need solid images or they'll insert white as you stated in your question. Same for the video editing software. They use black color as a background by default. You must have some layers to see your transparent image.

Have you tried for a workaround using Photoshop Actions. Don't forget to keep the backup of your PSD.

Another solution that wouldn't require you to rename your layers is using the Layer Comps feature: 1) Open the Layer Comps palette by going to Window > Layer Comps 2) Have only the layer you want in the first slide (saved file) as visible, all others off. 3) Click the "New Layer Comp" icon in the bottom right of the menu, exactly as if you were making ...

Blending modes within Photoshop do NOT translate to PNG format. It is not a matter of "how". It is a matter if it being impossible based on current technology.
