If I select Minion Pro Italic, I get no swash option (the button is greyed out) and so I cannot use/toggle swash alternatives. If I select a font (like Garamond Pro Italic), I am able to choose swash alternatives. If I then switch to Minion Pro Italic after enabling swash, I see the Minion Pro swash alternatives being used, but the swash toggle is disabled. ...

Practice You are using the correct tools, you merely need to get more proficient with them. Slow down, take more care when using them, and learn to tweak settings to your needs. There's rarely a "one button" solution. Everything requires practice.

First understand that resolution + width + height = Print size. You can't change the left side of the equation and expect the right side to stay the same. From the sound of things you are trying to alter the width, height, and resolution but retain the print size. That's why you are struggling. If you are not printing these images, the resolution field ...

Simple ratio: PPI = Pixels per inch Same centimeters with different number of pixels mean different densities of said pixels. The denser the pixels, the highest the quality (resolution). So one of your images might be 72ppi while the other might be 300ppi.

The best way I've used is to use the rectangle tool (U). You can easily change the width either in the tool parameters in the top of the window or in the Properties panel. The Properties panel will also make sure that the shape you're creating lands on an even pixel and not accidentally a fraction of one. (See attached screenshot.)

To Complete and answer my own Question Here is the Update from last year: Big update on this topic is presented with PS CC 14.2! Now you can have linked smart objects, it works like in InDesign. Just go to File->Place Linked… and choose your .psb file. This is the Promo video from adobe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6AIgoFDwlk

Click Blending Options, hit the FX on bottom right, Reset to Default List

The simple way to do this is just to make a selection based on the top shape. If it's on a separate layer, just Cmd+Click (haven't done this on a Mac in a while, on Windows its Ctrl+click) on the layer icon in the layers panel. Then select the layer of the shape you want to change and hit Delete to delete everything inside the selection you just made.

You can duplicate your layer and then add stroke when you change stroke size in each layer you will get a new stroke as you duplicate more layers

There is some confusion due to the shape itself. It is not "empty". It's a thin shape with an inner path and an outer path. The shape is filled with white in your screenshots. The center of the heart is a "counter" created by the two paths being set to create a compound image. It is designed to be a thin, stroke-like, shape. Not a solid heart shape. If ...

There are a number of ways to do this. The easiest one I can think of off the top of my head is to right click on the layer and go to Blending Options. From there you can click the Color Overlay effect to add a fill color. That should fill your shape with whatever color you pick. Another option would be to Ctrl + Click on the heart layer's thumbnail to ...

If you have Photoshop CS or higher you can use the History Log. It will save the file's history to an external file or right inside the PSD. http://graphicssoft.about.com/cs/photoshop/qt/cshistorylog.htm https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/undo-history.html

No there is no way to maintain history in a file. The only method is to turn on the History log in the preferences. This will merely document the steps you've performed but will not maintain the data in the History panel.

You're using a Brush that has transparency built into it. There's no way around that effect as a result without opening the .abr file and adjusting the opacity of the stroke which would defeat the purpose of using that brush to begin with. For example here is a Watercolor Brush on white background: If I remove the white background even though the brush ...

From what I understand by your question is that you wan't to delete a path from your vector shape layer. You can do the following. Suppose this is your vector. Select the Path Selection Tool and click on your vector layer. Select whichever shape you want to delete. Hit the delete Button. Done. I hope this is what you were looking for. If not, let me ...

The Enter in Photoshop means "Commit" not "line feed". For a line feed, use the Return key not the Enter key.

Is everything vector? If so why on earth are you using Photoshop? – Scott May 28 at 20:01 Totally. If it is a manufacturing process you need+should do it in vector format. If the exported image is raster you should vectorize it again. The only walk arround would be that you exported a raster image in real size at 600 ppi at least (1200 ppi would be ...

There may be a better solution, but a quick workaround is to set your units to Points instead of Pixels since 1 Point = 1 Pixel. Right click on your Ruler to quickly accomplish this. With Points as your units, you'll be able to specify decimals for the New Guide... command. After you place them you can of course switch your Document Unit back to pixels and ...

Alright, I found a solution. It seems that the problem comes from Automate-PDF Presentation... When I use this tool to create my pdf, the shapes are deformed. But if I export every pages separately in PDF format using Save As... there is no problem. Then to merge all the pages I use an online webservice. I agree that this is not really an explanation but ...

Thanks for the help, I found a solution, I used pixlr.com to re-save the image, apparently the PNG is using indexed colors and an alpha palette rather than using a full alpha mask

The name of the layer is "index", that means that the image now is in the indexed color mode, you should switch it to RGB mode. So go to Image -> Mode -> RGB color. Or else, try opening the PNG as a smart object (File -> Open as Smart Object) , and see if it'll be in RGB color mode. I hope that this'll help you.

Another method to do this is to create "Layer Comps" and from scripts export each Layer Comp as a file. I'm sorry, I'm new here, so I do not know how to put in advanced formatting and images, so my answer may seem pretty empty.

You can use Blending Options > Drop Shadow and adjust the Blend Mode (set on Multiply by default), opacity, shadow color, contour etc. Another way could be to duplicate the layer, set it in Pin Light mode, and again play with opacity. If the edges are too hard, you can use a Gradient Overlay, Gaussian Blur or simply erase the edges with the Eraser (soft ...

None that I'm aware of. While that might sound simple in theory its a pretty complicated task, I'm unaware of any free web applications that will do it for you especially being animated. The popular open source software Gimp is probably your best option. Again though its a complicated task, you might want to give this question a read which somewhat ...

This is a bug and does happen, I believe you can avoid it by making a smart object inside that smart object (with the same contents). Kind of annoying, but I believe that's how I handled it in the past.

To me it just looks like there's no anti-aliasing on the type layers. (Clearly they are type layers, not raster layers) Highlight the type layers and set an anti-aliasing option on the Character Panel.

Have you tried to redraw in illustrator? This is a very simply image, will not take more than 15 minutes to do. You can't just resize a image larger without quality loss. Also you can try to rasterize it: Select the image > Image trace > Sketched Art Result:

In terms of evenly spacing elements in drawing software, I'd use the alignment tools and/or blend tool. Illustrator has both. My typical process is: draw single object clone/duplicate as many as I need position one at the beginning and one at the end select all then use the align tool

You can't get vector from a PDF with Photoshop. Photoshop rasterizes everything when you open a PDF. That is unless the PDF was created by Photoshop with Preserve Photoshop Editing Capabilities on. In my experience, those type of PDFs are rare. But it can happen. If you do have one of those PDFs, just opening it with Photoshop will show the layers... ...

Make your own text in Photoshop. The existing text could be erased or colored over with white (use Brush tool). Then just make text layers with text elements (T).

If you have Illustrator just open the PDF page with gold circles and you will get perfectly crisp edges at any resolution.

I think the only way to get the spinner (Image A) to spin at the center is make the spinner a square. You have the artboard a square but when you move the PNG, it does not move based on the artboard but on the center of the spinner. You will have to move one of the points to fit the edge of the artboard. For this, I made the right part fit to the bottom ...

I encountered this problem today and the solution stated above did not work for me. With so much trial, experiment and research here's what worked for me..

FWIW: You can switch to Design Space to change the size and position of the artboard(s). Rearrange your artboard and move your nested layers according to your changes. Should be an acceptable workaround. Photoshop Design Space (Preview) Artboard Controls (Design Space) In Photoshop Standard, width and height is all you can set.

I made something similar recently in Illustrator. To start out, I created a diagonal line, then copied and pasted it multiple times on my artboard. After I added the desired number of diagonal lines, I used the horizontal and vertical distribution and alignment buttons to evenly distribute and align the lines. For me they are visible by default in the top ...

Brushes are not directly transferable between Photoshop and Illustrator or vice versa. You can copy/paste them as artwork, but you can't transfer them as "live" brushes the same way you can color swatches.

Because Adobe didn't build that functionality into Photoshop artboards... or Illustrator artboards for that matter. There's nothing you can do about it.

My answer isn't an exact answer, and it may not be useful in your case, but here's what I do in similar situations. This is for when the letter and the "fill" would be the same color, and isn't useful if you want them to be separate colors I'm using Adobe CS6, which is hopefully the version you are on, if not more recent. Avoid using the fill tool and ...

You can create your own photoshop action that does this. Create a new action in the action panel, then open one image as an example, then crop and scale the image to the right size, then save the resulting cropped image as a png. Then stop recording your actions. You can then batch edit an entire folder (or custom selection) of images using that action. ...

No, It is not possible for a vector layer to have different colors for different shapes in Photoshop. Although if you want to retain the vector, you can make a smart object and place all your vector layer shapes as different layers in it.

You will find that people who are more accustumed to work with Photoshop rarely, if ever, use the paint bucket tool. Instead they build a selection with magick wand, or the lasso tools. They then fill the selection (Alt/Ctrl + Backspace). This saves time as you can easily contract expand selections so if it wasnt right value just undo expand/refine and fill ...

You're right about the anti-alias. You get the halo effect (blurry pixels) in Photoshop when you don't work with clean whole pixels. Typography is usually a problem, because of the curves. Since I don't know how you will use the letter, I will try and suggest a couple of things. You can try and place a fill of the color behind the hole (known as the ...

Actions such as cropping, trimming, using the Image Size or Canvas Size commands, or rotating any amount other than 180 degrees can prevent you from going back to a previous state and will give you this error message. I would suggest using the tool first and then making further changes. Read more here: ...

If you just want to remove some of the blue and decrease the overall saturation... choose Image > adjustments > Hue/Saturation and move the Saturation slider to the left. The father left you move it, the more grey the image will get.
