Adobe introduced a new feature in CC called Extract Assets. I haven't played with it yet, but it looks like it has options for exporting at multiple resolutions. In the past I've used an app called Slicy (Mac only I'm afraid) which let's you output 1x and 2x resolutions. I still had to create a 1.5x version in the same file (which Slicy would output as a 3x ...

I have worked for a similarly long period of time on a desktop application, and I had to be extra careful with how I managed my resources and files. This is what made it a little easier for me to manage them: First, keep your features folders in an easily accessed location, so you make sure any new files end up in the same place. On Windows, it would be ...

You can't select ARGB because there's no alpha channel in your document. ARGB requires an actual, for real alpha channel. I'm not sure why your application requires it, but a simple way to make that selection available is to add an empty alpha channel, or select a layer and save the selection (which creates an alpha channel).

To put it bluntly: "Don't use Photoshop to animate things." To elaborate: When you see, say, a movie in the cinema, it runs about 25 frames per second. Entire thing is more complicated, but let's say every frame contains 1/25s and that 1/25s is as well exposure time of each frame (Need to learn about exposure time?). When something is moving in front of ...

If you are saving as a native Photoshop file, Ensure the Layers options is checked in the save dialog window.

I tried to make the texture with the software that makes the textures and now it works. I still not know how can I make the headers available in photoshop by the way but I'll mark this as answered. PS: I'll mark this answer as the solution in 2 days if no one can give me a solution. Thanks for everything.

Those aren't distressed per se. They are emulating offset printing on lower quality substrates. Photocopies, or newsprint. Essentially, it's an effect that you'd see when printing solid blocks of color where you get uneven ink coverage. The most typical way to achieve this is scanning in the actual texture you want to use. If you Google "print textures" ...

There are many ways to do this and to achieve this effect very easy you can just use a ready-made texture (search for example for “vintage” or “letterpress”). If I wanted to make my own texture I would use photoshop and start with a new black layer on top of my image. Then i would add a low amount of Noise to it (Filter > Noise > Add Noise …) Now ...

Let me begin by saying this method is just a workaround - the dark side of Android is, unfortunately, the multitude of screen sizes and densities we designers and developers need to work with, and the only way to create pixel-perfect assets in Photoshop is doing it manually. The following solution works only in Photoshop, as far as I know: If I understand ...

It's possible to add a suffix to each of the files you save, but (as far as I know) only via the Batch Processing feature. First, you need to create the Action without the Save command. Then, from the File menu, choose Automate > Batch..., and a dialogue will appear: You need to choose a folder with the files you want to process (alternatively, you can ...

Nice question. Actually, I have a couple of tips for cropping a portrait (human figure) in a square shape. the eyes' position must be in the top 1/3 of the square. that means you can crop off the top of the head. show the background from a part of the cropped image. try to avoid that the head appears too big.

If you have a one-color background, use this and record it like an automatic action: image > crop by > by color in the corner

The opacity of the colors in your file have no real bearing on the opacity of the substrate you are printing on nor the inks that would be used. In other words, if you have a layer of 100% black set to 50% transparency, that doesn't mean you will print with black ink that is 50% transparent. Rather, you will print with solid black ink that will have 50% ...

Any of your 3 attempts are good. You need to realize that filters, effects, and automated methods only get you so far. There comes a point where you need to stop looking for the "magic button" or "shortcut" to an end product and roll up your sleeves and start some manual effort. What I would do is take any of your three attempts (probably #2) and start ...

This is how I would go about it. You will need an image in good resolution (as big as the zoomed part). Pardon my very simple samples, I hope you can get the idea anyway! Open the image. Make a round selection of the part you will want zoomed in using the Elliptical Marquee Tool. Once you have your circle selected, copy and paste in a new layer (one way ...

I would approach this problem by using the bézier pen tool in Photoshop or Illustrator. This allows you to "draw" mathematically-defined vectors and shapes that have the added benefit of being able to scale to any size without losing resolution. But here's the thing: learning the bézier pen tool is challenging as it doesn't work like the other pixel-based ...

Is your design purely vector-based, or will you be using raster images? If you are submitting your file to the printer as a vector file (PDF is generally the best way to go), you could create a 8" x 2.32" file which could be easily scaled up, with no loss in resolution if it uses only vector files. If you are also using raster images, (JPEG files, etc.), you ...

To keep it transparent you might try using the pathfinder palette to elinate the lines you are not needing. If not you will have to edit the paths.

No. It is not possible. Outer glow with a dark color and thin border seems to be closest thing possible in Photoshop to the desired effect.

Since GitHub supports PSD file viewing & diffing, there is no reason not to use it for collaborative graphic design.

You can use the GIMP. Open the file and then use the File -> Export as... command. Choose the JPEG format that you need. That's it.

I've heard that some free image editing software (particularly Irfanview) can access the flattened raster preview that is usually stored in PSD files (much like the JPG previews that exist in DNG files). I must admit, I've never had to try this myself, but it should be possible to load this flattened image in IrfanView then re-save it as JPG. More info here: ...

I found out a way: Turn the text into a smart-object Change the Image > Mode to Indexed Color Change the palette to Custom and create a color table of these colors:255/0/00/255/00/0/255255/0/2550/255/255255/255/00/0/0255/255/255 The image should be a little grainy but there is no way to change that.

Don't send Photoshop to do a vector or page layout job. Turn it around. Export the .psd to a .eps and place that in Illustrator, then import the logo (or paste it). Even better, place the .psd into InDesign, then import the Illustrator .ai logo, then export to a .pdf. Best — rebuild the layout in InDesign.

The only way to "re-synch" a layer with Photoshop, that I know of, is to make sure that the layer name in AE is the same as the source name in AE. This however is not super pretty, as the layer names would look something like [my layer/my project file.psd] and I'm not sure how your export script would handle it. I wrote this scrip that will go through ...

I don't know of any way to do this from with the After Effects UI. It's probably doable with scripting, so this is something that might be worthwhile to ask on the Adobe AE forum. For a 100+ layer file, I'd estimate it would be a 15-20 minute job to rename all the layers in AE by hand to restore their correspondence to the PSD layer names. Unfortunately, ...

Without seeing the actual logo it's not possible to give a definitive answer to this, but importing it as a Shape Layer or vector paths would be the best way to do it if it's a simple logo, because your PSD would then contain live vector shapes that would output cleanly to PDF. When you import a vector logo (or any other vector) as a Smart Object, Photoshop ...

Probably best to just "Save As" and select JPEG as your format and whatever degree of compression you'd like to apply. The whole point of slices is to export the design as separate images to utilize in your HTML and CSS.

Unchecking "Preserve Photoshop Editing Capabilities" is absolutely the solution here. Took my PDF from 23mb to 870kb!

As others have noted the JPG format is lossy it will lose information with each save, thus each progressive save makes the image a bit worse. PNG can also be lossy, and it is also "lossless". PNG-8 is an indexed lossy format, rather like GIF. PNG-24 is a lossless but compressed format, which will make very nice images but the file size is much bigger. ...

As comments elude to, you need to create 3 separate shapes, each with a gradient at a different angle. This is not a single gradient. Once the 3 shapes are aligned, you end up with something similar.


0

It is not possible (or hardly possible) to crrate such gradient style. And it is not a single circle. It must have segments and these gradients are adjusted to obtain this kind of style

It is because of minimum number of frames. If you want to avois jumping of frames use Flash professional. Or increase the number of frames in Ps

If you want to have best quality of image save it as .PNG format and also select speed uncompressed but the output file size will be large with very good quality. Or you can also increase the resoultion while creating the document or using canvas image option.

I would say use a smart object, however you could try doing 'save for web'as a PNG. This gives you more options than the default export, such as image scaling and the type of smoothing applied (none, art or text optimized smoothing). for best quality probably use 'art' smoothing and a large image scaling for best resolution (it should say the pixel ...

A friend of mine who is a photographer told me once that he converts his images to 16-bit while editing to reduce a loss of quality. I always wondered if this really had a visible effect, so i tried the following: I started out with a 8-bit gradient. In the first image I adjusted the Levels in 8-bit mode. The second image was converted to 16-bit, edited ...

It depends on what you do. There are some advantages to 16 bits per channel images, as well as some disadvantages. Some of the advantages are: If you need to do a lot of color correction/other color based image manipulation you lose less data in transit. If your data source has more than 8 bits of color then you can gain benefit from that. Some of the ...

If it's simply a darker edge that you desire I suggest adding a stroke instead. Double-click on the desired layer to show the layer style box, select stroke in the sidebar and adjust colour, size, etc. until you achieve the desired result. You can set the position to outside to ensure it wraps your shape.

I've run into the same issue and my problem was that the bitdepth of the source and destination documents were not the same. So in your script, when you create a new document to copy your layer make sure that the bitdepth is the same as your source: var destDoc = app.documents.add( sourceDoc.width, sourceDoc.height, sourceDoc.resolution, ...

It's also implementable within just single Inner Glow style for a shape layer (the shape itself is painted black). Let's go from top to bottom: Set Blend Mode to "Dissolve" Opacity: 100% Noise: 25% Make gradient of a desired color Set Size to 100px Range: 75% Jitter: 15% Try playing with the numerical values.

Looks like you want to get that nice, silhouette effect. How about using color overlays since parts of the image already has transparency? Layer> layer style> color overlay

I once looked for it and I was unable to find anything that would allow me to remove the metadata from the filename in the tabs. Only option I can recommend is adding shortcuts to the window since the default has no shortcuts applied.

The problem is that "tutorial" does not really address setting up spot colors in Photoshop. In fact, it's completely inaccurate for production. You can't simply pick a spot color and use it on a layer. It's not that simple. That's just not how Photoshop works with Spot colors. The writer of that article should be flogged with a wet noodle repeatedly. In ...
