Create a rectangle filled with a color. Reduce the rectangle's layer opacity in the Layers Panel. Done.

Simply add a Color Overlay layer style to a black and white photo. Set the overlay to Multiply and reduce the opacity until you are happy. In this case a blue-grey color is used for the overlay.

1) Use a Black & White adjustment layer. 2) Use a Photo Filter adjustment layer. I used a custom purple #6c118e. I made the intensity 95% and the opacity 98% (really just messing with the sliders) 3) Added a levels adjustment layer to brighten the image. I just moved the white point slider to the left, towards the middle. 4) Added overall saturation ...

To obtain a similar result I desaturated the image to grayscale Applied the bucket paint tool in multiply blend mode using a purple color.

The solution is a lot easier than the problem defined. Just hold the ALT key, then move your mouse cursor between those two layers (blending layer and the artwork layer). The cursor will change to this strange arrow, then CLICK. The blending layer will then be applied only to the artwork layer beneath it and your problem is solved!

What I think you are trying to say is you want a lemon texture over an image. To do this, I would do this: Create a fully colored lemon (or just use an image) Go to Image > Adjustments > Desaturate Image Go to Edit > Define Pattern Create a Blank New Layer above the Image you want to place the texture Go to Edit > Fill (Make Sure under Blending, Mode is ...

Best bet is probably Select > Color Range. Then click a white portion of the canopy and play with the "Fuzziness" slider to get you where you want. Once you do that click okay and your'e left with a selection. Make the selection a Mask (probably have to invert the mask afterwards). Then simply lower opacity for the layer and Save for Web. You can save ...

The Photoshop CS5 solution: 1. Take a photograph. 2. Edit the picture, making selections and filling them using the "Content-Aware" to make it seamless. 3. Use Filter/Other/Offset and set the offset to whatever is 50% of height and width (ex. +50, +50). 4. Use Clone Tool to take away all seems. 5. Use Offset once again, this time with negative digits, -50, ...

You could change all of the black to transparency as is answered here Or a possible alternative since you are programming (depending on what you are programming of course) could be to program the behavior that the screen blend mode enforces; From Wikipedia; With Screen blend mode the values of the pixels in the two layers are inverted, multiplied, and ...

You don't need to do anything other than ensure the bleeds are set in the Document Set Up and you include bleeds when exporting to PDF. Just place the image (or whatever) across the gutter of the facing pages. When you output facing pages to a standard single page press-ready PDF the bleed will be added to the gutter area. You simply don't see the bleed ...

The black lines should have some variation in thickness. Eliminate the line around the outside as it breaks the flow of the grid outside the frame, which Mondrian was playing with. Notice that in the painting each colored block could go on outside the frame and we are only seeing a cropped piece of something larger or perhaps infinite. pay close attention to ...

I would try it with some grey. So instead of 70% opacity with a black button, Try with some dark grey with a little less transparency. You have to look for ways to get some white into it. Very transparent textures, gradients or very slight white noise might help also.

If you have to keep the transparency, then at least make the icon itself solid, this will have enough contrast to work against the dark background - even if you can't see the outer transparent background.

I would do it like this: CSS + HTML The icon as background image The text as normal HTML-text

You can always combine multiple layers and apply the same blending mode, but for many blending modes it won't look the same as having separate layers. That's just not mathematically possible for many of these effects, including overlay. As you can see from the above link, overlay is not a commutative function. That is, if you change the order of the ...

Late to the party as usual. You could also simply use a gradient map adjustment layer with black and violet (as sampled from the right side of your image) for your two colors.

It should be simple to do if you build your layers like this. top White text Orange layer set to multiply Levels layer (if needed) Black and white image bottom If levels are needed, just push the contrast and maybe make the black more grey if you want it to appear faded.

Horatio is absolutely right - the symbol is made up of rotated cutout sections, not complete 'petals'. The method consists of creating one petal, rotating it 45% and then subtracting one shape from the other using the path difference and intersection tools. The SVG (from InkScape v0.48) for the image below can be found here and can be used on black or ...

Here is a larger version picked randomly from google search: ( http://jamesonbull.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/alfresco_logo.jpg ) I see a few minor differences: your white outline is transparent; your final orange overlay is not orange and yellow... However, if you conceive of the repeating element as this: Your problem no longer exists.

There are a number of ways to create circles within circles in photoshop. Here are two: First Method: Filter > Sketch > Halftone Pattern - probably defaulting on dot but can be changed to circle. Foreground color and backgrond color will determine the colors. Second Method: For say a 1px circle with a 1 pixel margin create an action that says: Expand ...

Select all the shape layers Group them Command/Ctrl+G Highlight the group in the Layers Panel Choose Layer > Layer Style > Color Overlay and choose the color you'd like. I don't know why you put "Illustrator" in the title or tagged this question with Illustrator. It has nothing to do with Illustrator at all. Or, am I missing something? If you need each ...

BgMask is a script that does what you want. It has automatic and manual background extraction mode. Load your images as layers and do Extract Background, and if that leaves artifacts, use manual background extraction tool. See also a video tutorial.

Here's my take on it, it's a bit complicated but very effective, and can especially be used when you scan a drawing and want to take the pencil tracing from the white background in order to change the color. (Switch the Ctrl for Cmd if you are on Mac.) Make sure your image is flattened first on a white background Select all and copy (ctrl+a, ctrl+c) Go ...

Add a Black and White adjustment layer above the image. Add Gradient adjustment layer above the image. Change blending mode to multiply. Adjust opacity of gradient layer to fine-tune result.

It is because you have a margin on the class box .box { /* margin: 25px; */ padding: 20; border-radius: 10px; border: 3px solid #BC3E40; } See jsfiddle - https://jsfiddle.net/ry4ummkp/1/ If you want space between the red outline and the container you can add padding to the container instead of a margin on the box. This may affect your ...

Generally it's desired to apply the darkening and gradient on the same element. This is true when you want the whole image to be darkened (as it seems you want). To do so, you just have to use a linear-gradient: .container { background: /* Top color overlay, in this case darkening */ linear-gradient( rgba(28, 31, 29, 0.7), ...

Draw a shape, reduce the fill to like 10%, duplicate and rotate. Here I did it with 12% fill. No blend modes needed:

Step 1: Let's add a little noise to the image to help the two photos blend more seamlessly together. Go up to the Filter menu at the top of the screen. choose Noise, and then choose Add Noise. This brings up the Add Noise dialog box. Set the Amount to somewhere between 2-6% depending on the pixel dimensions of your image. I'm working on a low resolution ...

It appears to be some kind of rendering error in CMYK mode, maybe in the way Illustrator previews transparency for CMYK? I don't know why it renders that way normally, but if you turn on View > Overprint Preview or View > Proof Colors, it should eliminate that variation. Your final output shouldn't have any remnant of that shift (my test was exporting ...

Super late to the party here but a thing that helped me quite a bit—you can select (with the direct selection tool in PS) a mask/vector points, switch over to AE, create a new solid and paste it in—it will paste in as a path. Very neat. Another workaround that I've found myself using is exporting from PS as a Photoshop EPS… very hacky but also works!
