I came up with a nice method for cleaning up pictures like this, and it works even when the background or lighting is uneven (that is, far worse cases than the example in this question) and it retains the colour. My instructions are based on the Gimp, but it would be very similar in other programs like Photoshop. Firstly, make a duplicate of the layer: ...

Ramp the contrast up with curves. Instructions: Select your image and press Ctrl-M. This will bring up the curves dialog. Move the top point left and the bottom point right until your image becomes black and white. (that rhymes!)

First you'll want to desaturate the image (CMD+SHIFT+U), this removes any color and makes it easier to achieve pure white. With your file open, choose Image->Adjustments->Levels. You'll get this: Now bring the two outer triangles in like this (you'll need to play around with this until you get something you like): You should end up with this!

From the menu, choose Object > Transform > Shear or Right Mouse Button/Control-Click (Mac) and choose Transform > Shear. That Should do the trick. You could also go to the Transform Panel in the top right of your screen (Or Window > Transform), like you can see in the following screenshot:

Just put your large, edited image in PowerPoint, resize it there, and print. I just took one that was sized in CS6 as 38 inches wide and made a perfect 4x6 out of it with no lossy issues. As we used to say in the old days when we had to do our own programming, the best solution is the simplest one, or what we used to call an "elegant solution."

Sorry to say that, it is not possible in photoshop yet.

This answer is undoubtedly a bit late for you, but maybe this'll be of some use to you or someone else in the future ... The reason you're only being offered 3 file formats to save to in Photoshop is because the document is classified as a 'Large Document' as soon as one of the dimensions exceeds 30,000 pixels. You may already be aware of this, ...

If the image has solid colors, AI's Image Trace function might be able to trace the image. Then you could put the colors to a color swatch, then swap the colors.

Photoshop is the proper tool to use when editing raster graphics - png, jpg, gif, tiff, (some) eps, (some) pdf, bmp, etc. Illustrator is for vector graphics - (some) eps, ai, (some) pdf, svg, etc. You should be using Photoshop for a PNG file.

Ensure your document is 8-bit RGB. (Image > Mode) If that doesn't help, hold down the Option/alt key and choose File > Save as... this will save a copy and remove any non-png allowed formatting. Chances are there's simply something about the image which is not allowed in the PNG format. However, using File > Save for Web should allow PNG saving in ...

The 2 main answers to this problem are: 1) Recreate your file as an RGB and copy all your old layers over to this new file. 2) As Adobe STAFF has said, you may have deleted some important files by mistake requiring a reinstall of Photoshop https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1311499

The animated gif export will only export the frames on the main stage. Meaning you need to have a graphic symbol on the main stage with the total frames. If you have a MovieClip instead of a Graphic symbol, it will only export the first frame of the mc.

Starting from version CS6 you can animate the size of layers in photoshop. Just convert the layer to smart object, and position property will change to transform.

Scott's method will work (and probably gets the job done perfectly in this case), but this can be done in a way that retains the scalable vector property of the text, which the layer mask doesn't. And considering that the white area is a shape, the whole thing would be scalable to any size. Right click the text layer and select "Create Work Path" Select ...

To make things easy for yourself when editing later, it pays off to do a bit more work upfront by using the Appearance panel for this. Draw a shape Give it any fill and no stroke Open the Appearance panel Select your shape with the Move tool (V) Choose Add New Stroke, either through Appearance panel options or with the icon bottom leftmost on the panel ...

I am not aware of any preference set-up to achieve the out of register look but simply 'copy' the object with the stroke and fill, then 'paste in front', then nudge it until it is the desired distance apart, remove the stroke from the lower layer, then remove the fill in the layer above. Set the stroke to 'overprint' or else it may 'knock-out'. Perhaps ...

I also require this functionality but can confirm Will's answer that there does not seem to be any automated solution. I reference 3 paragraph styles from the front cover of reports as separate Running Headers in order to automatically populate a pre-styled 'Footer' master page. This works fine if the text being referenced is NOT in a master page itself, ...

Sort of. After you resize and the text gets munged, you can snap it back to normal by setting the Vertical Scale and Horizontal Scale to 100% (or, whatever it was before). (this is also what the cmd+shift+x shortcut Tim Human mentions does). Or, if you don't want any change at all, set a Paragraph Style or a Character Style and then re-apply it ...

Yes. You can do it just hit and hold shift then resize!

No. When you resize multiple objects it's always a transformation. There is no way to keep area text from transforming as well. You simply can't do what you want. In fact.... Adobe even broke this very thing in InDesign. What you want used to work in InDesign CS4, but Adobe broke it starting with InDesign CS5... and they don't appear to care that it's ...

I'd almost certainly use Joonas's approach for something like this, unless you have only a handful of cards. There is a different approach that you might find simpler, however: use the Smart Object only for your slide/card background and set the type on other layers. In CS6, you don't have the option to link an external Smart Object to your file (which ...

Photoshop does have Data sets. They can do something like what you want, but it has always been a bit weird in the sense that you can only export files .psd. You can of course convert them to other formats, but it's still odd that you can't export to other format straight away. You can do this following without an external file, but I'm going to explain ...

I'm prepared to eat my words here, but unless I'm greatly mistaken that is NOT a repeating pattern - despite appearances. It may have been one once, but not in its current form. I'll try to explain; 1. (if you want to repeat my test) Rotate the image so that one wavy line is exactly horizontal. You can do this by finding the high point of one line and ...

If I am understanding your question correctly you need to make sure to have Use Artboards: File -> Export -> Use Artboards This was also on Stacked awhile ago: "Keep original size when export image from illustrator"

It depends on how you originally created the artwork. If it was created as vector artwork then you can export it as vector artwork (see Gramps' references) but if it was created as raster artwork you will have to somehow create the vector artwork information. Without going too much into it, raster artwork is a pixel-by-pixel description of artwork. This is ...

Based on @Brendan's work, I added the newest Google ad format and bumped it to CS6. Link here!
