My way of dealing with this (i have to do it a lot actually), is i copy the layer i want to convert into a new temporary grayscale document, then convert it to a monotone using the specific hex number. then plop it back into the orig file, and just hide the orig layer (incase i need to go back for some reason, or change the color). Maybe it seems a bit weird ...

Some clients just ask for nonsenses. Check if "the client" is only the owner or it has a graphic design departament. If it has, send the file to someone who actually knows what to do with it. If you are sending an Ilustrator or CorelDraw file, just send a layered document, deactivating the black based layer. For a png file there is nothing you can do. ...

There are only 3 options for Transparency Grid size in Photoshop: Small Medium Large They do not conform to a pixel standard like you're thinking of them. They transmute with the display size. For example set to large on a 50px by 50px image when viewing it very large on my display gets: Zoomed out without any other changes however gets us this: ...

This is a quick, easy way that I've found to remove a white background: 1) Use the Quick Selection Tool (w) and paint around the inside of the object that you wish to isolate from its background. You might need to go in and manually deselect some areas, by holding down ALT while you paint. 2) Click on Refine Edge at the top of your screen and adjust your ...

As of Photoshop CC 2015.5 you can now have artboards with transparent backgrounds. Either create a new Artboard and select Transparent under the Background Contents menu or, if you have an existing artboard, simply select it in the layers panel, open up the properties windows and change the background with the Artboard background color dropdown. (Note that ...

As of Photoshop CC 2015.5 they've introduced the Select and Mask taskspace, found in the Select menu as a replacement to the Refine Edge feature. It's very similar to refine edge, just with various improvements and overall I find it much more pleasant to work with than its predecessor. Here is the official Adobe video tutorial on how to use it.

Use actions like this one http://mediamilitia.com/removing-a-white-background-with-photoshop-actions/ But the quality is always linked to the quality of the jpg and the amount of artefacts.

I think I figured it out. The trick was to create a simple mask and using different brush types (different shapes, like grass brush or something) to create this fade out effect using different opacity stages and brush sizes. Now I'm pretty satisfied with the answer. Here is how it looks.

I do not understand the exact result you expect but there are some options. 1) You can use a mesh fill, where you can not only change color of one node but the transparency itself. As the mesh can get complicated use a mesh of a simple rectangle and put it inside your shape. 2) Use a bitmap as the pattern you need as transparent. 3) Edit your gradient. ...

this may be some help, may not. Sometimes transparencies can really confuse rip software. In your psd file I would first try and flatten and save out as a high res jpg. - then use that file as your Ai embedded file. or rasterise the embedded file in illustrator. Failing that you'll have to flatten the transparencies

Yes you can do this you will lose some stuff in rounding errors and dynamic range. just subtract the image from the background. Tough it does not seem like your operation is add. its possibly add plus a channel normalization. But yes i can reverse this by subtracting the mask and re normalizing the levels. Image 1:B-d Image 2:B-d + Normalized levels ...

Just cut the shape into 2, or expand it and merge the pieces. It a bit similar to the question about art brush overlap. cut the line expand use shape builder to isolate the overlap. Or you can use multiple splitted segments as a brush they also overlap as described in the linked post. IN the oppsote case just group them and enable
