No. But, you can make a hotkey for it. From top menu: Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts.. Ctrl+Alt+Shift+K Just select Palette menus from the drop down list and then Animations. Once you've given a hotkey press Accept. ( Make sure to listen to photoshop when it warns you if the inserted hotkey combination would override any existing ones. You can try to use ...

By default, Photoshop applies some anti-aliasing to the text layers. Alex has provided a nice comparison in another question: The anti-aliasing options are available on the toolbar and in the Character window: NB: if you are planning to use the text layers as regular (HTML) text in the final product, the browsers most probably will render the ...

I'm not sure why you're rasterizing the layers, nor why you would want to copy and paste rather than place the image in AI. If there isn't a vital reason for that workflow, Place the PSD in Illustrator (File > Place) instead. All of the transparency is preserved, layers are intact. Once the image is placed, you can embed it if necessary. One of the embed ...

To add in words, Since Export Layers to Files is run by some script all I had to do was find that script, then find the function which saves the layers to files, find which part of the function does the numbering prefix & comment it out. So here are the steps - on Mac running Lion, goto Applications > Adobe Photoshop CS5 > Presets > Scripts ...

There are a couple of ways to do color separations for screen preparation in Illustrator. You're trying to do it the more complicated way, so I'll walk you through how I'd do that first. Let's start with a simple text object that has a fill and a stroke on top of a rectangle: The Long Way Step 1: BACK UP YOUR ORIGINAL ARTWORK! This process will make ...

On the Layer window change the mode of the fire layer from "Normal" to either Screen or Lighten and see if thats what you want. That's the easiest way to remove black. Beyond that you can also go into the Blending Options and adjust the slider at the bottom where it says, "This Layer" and move the black tab on the left side in a bit but the results aren't ...

It was driving me crazy too... you can deselect the Align to Pixel Grid checkbox on the Transform panel (shows up on "show options"), but new objects will always retain the snapping behaviour. To turn it of permanently, click on the flyout menu at the top right of the transform panel then uncheck Align new objects to pixel grid. Phew...

Yes, the Duplicate (Cmd-D) shortcut is great at times, but it retains the original origin point for any transformation. There are times where this is very beneficial, like step and repeating. If you need to scale several objects throughout the artboard and you do not want them to change position, a better alternative is to select the objects, then use ...

Photoshop's not the first tool I'd use to do something like this (Illustrator would be my choice), but you can achieve those results by stroking a path using a square brush with the right settings. Create your circular path using the Ellipse tool. Select the Brush tool and load the Square Brushes brush set. Select one of the square brushes. Open the brush ...

Delete the line connecting the 2 anchor points on either end of the "strokeless" side. It will leave an open shape, but shouldn't cause any major issues. The stroke won't be applied to the open edge. The other approach is to expand the stroke as a separate object and modify it separately from the fill object.

Warning, image heavy I kind of understand your first question so that's all I'll attempt to answer for now, and please clarify if this is wrong, but here's how I see it: You want to ONLY have the stroke on a circle, not the contents. Two easy methods: Method 1: Circle marquee -> make your circle -> Select >> Modify >> Border -> ...

The most reliable source for Photoshop shortcuts is going to be Photoshop itself. You can export your shortcuts to an HTML document: Edit → Keyboard Shortcuts, click Summarize. You should then be prompted where to save the HTML page which will show you all your shortcuts in a nice list. This list can be quite extensive and you probably won't use them ...

You could use slices. You could set up artboards for each object. Ultimately I find, Copy, New, Paste, Save faster than most other methods. You can also utilize the hidden "hide other" shortcut. Select the object you want to save/export and then hit Command-Option-Shift-3 (Mac) or Ctrl-Alt-Shift-3 (Win). This will hide everything which is not selected. ...

Make sure the height and width attributes (or CSS) for your img tag match the actual size of the image. Otherwise, it will be rescaled by the web browser, and many web browsers do this in an ugly way. Even the ones that do it relatively well may render the image somewhat blurry. If you want to make sure that it looks right, keep the pixels 1:1.

Check if you have a Style set on your Shape tool settings? It should be set on the white rectangle with a red stipe over it, and it seems to remember this setting even if you close the document, and create a new one.

Which of the Adobe CS5 Programs has the best functionality for this? Depends on which you are designing your sprites in. I created UI buttons in Photoshop, so that's what I used to create my sprite file. I used a JPG because it gave me the lowest file weight with all the different colors for my button. What method can I use to set up a grid of ...

What AdamSchuld says is the standard way. A second way of setting blending modes with finer control on what they apply to is via the super-useful Appearance window. With this, you can set the blending mode (and opacity) of individual fills and strokes, as well as of certain effects. You can also give elements multiple fills and strokes with different ...

Well this is a multi-level question so I will answer them accordingly. Since you have tagged this with adobe-creative-suite I would assume you have Acrobat. Since you did not specify which version of Acrobat you have I will demonstrate with Acrobat X known as Acrobat 10. I know I can put the file name etc around it but is there a way to put a logo ...

Place the circle shape layer under your images in the Layers panel. Then click between the circle layer and the image on top of it while pressing alt key. This will use the circle layer as a clipping mask. You can add layer styles into the circle layer and the images on top of it in the clipping mask, will use those same styles. In my example image I ...

Open the flyout menu in the Color panel and click on CMYK. The Color panel stays in whatever mode it started in, or is switched to. This doesn't affect the color mode of the document or the color; it's just a different way of describing the color. If you used RGB swatches in your document, you'll find that double-clicking on a swatch after switching to CMYK ...

According to what I understand from your question, the Illustrator file has the letters in curves or outlines, and not in text. This means all information about the font has been lost, and you only have a "drawing" of the letters. So it won't let you edit them. If this is the case, you will need to re-add a text layer in Illustrator, with the russian ...

Simply use the Ellipse Tool to draw an ellipse and set the Fill to none and the Stroke to whatever you want. Edit: For versions of Photoshop older than Photoshop CS6 Simply set the Fill Opacity to 0% and add a stroke Layer Style

In Photoshop CS5 they introduced better options for the Refine Edge Tool over CS4: Awhile back I ran into this issue and saw a very good video in regards to removing backgrounds from hair by Terry White called "How to Remove a Background from an Image in Photoshop CS5"

If you want the handles to be "similar" the first thing you do - you press Shift+C (Convert Anchor Point) and click once on the point of interest: you had a smooth point (otherwise it has no handles) and converted it to sharp one. Next, you click on the point of interest the second time and begin to drag to desired direction - by this action you convert ...

When you have the appearance the way you want it, go to Window > Workspaces > New Workspace and save your custom workspace (call it "Pete's Custom" or whatever). It will show up as a new choice in the workspace list at the top of the Bridge window. When you close Bridge, your new custom layout will remain the default.

There's a very important distinction between the document color modes many aren't aware of. When you open an RGB document color profile, all the swatches, symbols, brushes, etc are RGB items. When you open a CMYK document color profile, all the swatches, symbols, brushes, etc are CMYK items. It's sometimes better to open a new document in the desired ...

Go under Preferences → Type and click the box next to "Apply Leading to Entire Paragraphs." Then select every last character of your text and make everything the SAME leading, and use the "space before" or "space after" settings in the paragraph style to add your extra space. NEVER change the leading of one line randomly to add space between ...
