This is for Photoshop: Use a bold font, and decrease the tracking so the letters are bunched up quite close together. Convert the text layer into a Smart Object so you can still edit the text or tweak the settings later if necessary Add some Gaussian Blur Add a Levels Adjustment Layer as shown below

A .SVG file is a native vector graphics file and it seems to me that your script is just embedding the bmp into a .svg file - It's clear that's not what you want to accomplish. Exporting or embedding a raster file in a vector file will not yield a useful conversion. The .bmp would probably need to be recreated as a vector file in order to function as ...

I'm a big fan of multidisciplinary work so I really like how you're trying to make the best of both worlds. One potential area that I see is work with conductive inks and hybrid media. As both an electrical engineer and a graphic designer, it seems like you could be an asset as an hired consultant for people who want to inject some interactivity in their ...

The basic paper texture can be made using a layer above with any paper-like texture as a grey (rgb 128 128 128), and then set the layer blend to "difference" with a low opacity. The fuzzy edges from ink bleed, you might try using "color range" selection with a high fuzziness on the ink, dupe that to its own layer directly above the drawing layer and then ...

Data visualization often requires a skill set that intersects with any science backgrounds. Since you were undoubtedly trained into using something like Matlab it can give you a serious leg up when it comes to doing statistical inferences from the data and custom processing of the data. Any signal processing you did can come handy when using Photoshop too. ...

Here's a modified version of that script. I changed the way folders are got: made a function that gets all subfolders with a specific mask instead (line 18). // https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/125106/multiple-panorama-automation-in-photoshop // https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/129569/batch-photomerge-only-process-images-in-...

If you are talking about moving the sliders, then you could construct them like this. Layer 1: a grey filled rounded rectangle shape Layer 2: a duplicate of layer one, filled with a colour Clip layer 2 to layer 1 by Alt+clicking on the line between both layers in the layers panel. The cursor changes to an icon like this shown circled in red Layer 3: a ...

Probably not possible in a specific or common way. Many people can fix cars and play the piano and go do the 3k marathon swimming and cycling, while their day job is in real estate. That doesn't mean everything can or should be mixed. Its different things you do when a specific opportunity arrives. If the opportunity calls for a mix, do it, otherwise, it is ...

I know it's a year later, but the solution is: Create a new layer, make sure it's in front of all others. Select it in the Layers palette Choose Artboard from Layers from the flyout. Click OK.

The other option is to use Knockout layer blending. It's a bit nerdy, but bear with me. So I have two layers and a bg: I make a copy of them and set Fill to 0: Then I put them to groups with copy layers on top: Then double click on each Copy layer and set Knockout to Shallow so the knockout effect will only work inside a group: Knockout layers mask ...

Then PDF is probably not the format for you. PDF is actually meant to behave as if it is going to be actually printed, even if you never do it. The dimensions of the document are physical, cm or inches or whatever. You would need to match the document dimensions and internal resolution to the resolution of the monitor displaying it and the display mode of ...

This can be done with a very simple script: var color = app.foregroundColor; color.hsb.hue = color.hsb.hue < 180 ? color.hsb.hue + 180 : color.hsb.hue - 180; app.foregroundColor = color; save this as a your_name.jsx file to Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019\Presets\Scripts Mac: /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC 2019/Presets/...

This is not easily accomplished and it irritates me as well. I can only see one solution which can be hard to implement, if you haven't thought about it from the beginning. Make sure that your "mother" document is at the resolution you want (probably 300 ppi). Make sure that each of your Smart Objects is set to that same resolution. (Double-click them and ...

As a hacky solution, you could do this: Pick your color using the Eyedropper Tool. Fill the image with the color using Alt + Backspace. Invert the color using Ctrl / Cmd + I. Pick the inverted color using the Eyedropper Tool. Undo two times by pressing Ctrl / Cmd + Z two times. That's two clicks and four keyboard shortcuts. Don't think I could do it any ...

I use GIMP for this. Open the PSD in gimp, select the layer with holes (in gimp ALT+click on layer), then select -> remove holes. Then fill the new selection with a color. then select -> inverse, and fill with another color. Then layer -> to image size. Then copy (CTRL+C). then switch back to photoshop, and paste. remove the bg color with the wand. And you ...

It's called Tracking. Tracking (sometimes called letterspacing), controls the consistent space between letters across a block of text, and affects a word or text block overall. Here's a helpful image from Adobe Help website:

One easy way to make an approximate replica is to draw three overlapping blurred ellipses on a black background. The opacities are different. I experimented in Inkscape because sizes, colours, the amount of blur and opacities were easily adjustable. In Photoshop everything is much more complex to adjust. If you have Illustrator, use it. Top left version is ...

There is a lot going on with this image. It looks like multiple gradients linear & elliptical as well as some layering / masking with some blending modes. I see ~3 elliptical gradients. There seems to be one on top, bottom and one overlapping in the middle which gives the larger spot on bottom the appearance of blending into the spot on top. I think ...

From what I understand, you want to turn the image white and the background black. One method could be using a negative filter and manually refining the color values.

Do File > New Choose any preset from the Web presets (you don't want a CMYK file for printing on a home/office printer - should be RGB for these kind of printers) Set the units to Inches, and add the custom size by typing it in the preset details panel. Set the resolution to 300ppi. Hit Create. Copy and paste the content you made previously into the new ...

There are two things: One is color halftone - a filter that simulate result of printing where each color dots are far enough to be separated with a naked eye yet close enough to make the picture readable. Second is overprinting (¡es bueno!) an effect that show itself when there is no "knockout" under certain color/objects and the opaque paint is printed ...

You can well design in Illustrator if Photoshop's vector tools are not enough. Vectors can be rasterized in Illustrator or you can copy and paste them to Photoshop, which can be useful because many things have better tools there (you said you use also photos). Best quality: The sharpness and colors are limited by the printing process. It's useless to try ...

When you copy and paste into Illustrator, the paste position is not random. It's centred on the document window. I don't know of any way to change that behaviour. However, using that information, the following hacky solution is possible. Hopefully it might work for you: If you can arrange it so that there are a blank squares in your grid in illustrator ...

Depends on the type of export your Action had. If it was Save For Web, then yes, it's generally 3-4 times slower than Save As Yep, Batch uses active document extension to determine file type it's going to save.

Check that your background color is the color you need: by default Document.resizeCanvas() uses it when the canvas is enlarged: You can pass color with an AM command though, something like this: resizeCanvas(600,600,{ hue: 180, saturation: 100, brightness: 50 }) function resizeCanvas(width, height, color) { if (color == undefined) color = {...

In Photoshop, you would select Image > Adjustments > Replace Color. But the rug background is an off-white. Maybe that's intentional? If so, I'd explain the site background is pure white and the two are clashing, request a review and updated images. (And while at it, I'd ask for higher fidelity images.)

One thing to try is a fake metallization trick. It should be done differently to the clock and to the statue figures, but I made a compromise because your attached image has too low quality for easy separation. I guess you have them separately. First I made (a complex) selection and deleted the white background with it. Layer mask doesn't work here, the BG ...

I think that you need to redraw it completely. But if that is not possible maybe just increase the brightness or something in software like Photoshop or something familiar. When doing this, make sure it is a transparent PNG.

Freeze D italic via fontsgeek.com The path of the letter "a" is different, I think due to the adaptation to the construction of the neon.

You could use tools like 'What the font'. You can past a screenshot for example and it will search for the font or similar fonts.

Short of redrawing it entirely, maybe you could posterise it? 2 levels would be black & white, 3 has an intermediate grey, more gets eventually closer to full greyscale… The more I look at this, the more I think it should be entitled "Mother gives son a good slap" ;-)

You redraw it entirely. You typically can't edit a photo of a sculpture (assuming you have the rights to use the image) in a fashion that is applicable to logotypes. You need to manually either use software or a pen and paper to draw the aspects of the sculpture in a way that would still indicate the overall image, yet be simplified enough to be usable as ...

Are you aware that if you're processing the pdfs in Photoshop you'll lose all vector information? Anyway, if that doesn't bother you, you could just make an action which adds a Solid Color layer with CMYK(0, 0, 0, 1) and set the Blend Mode of the Solid Color layer to Multiply. This will pollute all colors of the artwork with 1% black ink, but it's ...

If you don't want an artboard after you created a new file just click on the artboard folder in the layer panel and ungroup it (Crtl + Shift + g). Hope this will help you.

Start from a white on black drawing. Apply a bit of blur towards the bottom. Then apply the liquify tool to the red green and blue channels separately with slightly different settings. Then apply a hue-shift, for the analog look. The orange glow near the bottom is done separately.

You have the G color channel selected (from R,G,B). The screenshot you're following has the H selected (from H,S,B). Click on the H radio button and you'll see the exact same color preview. You must have clicked on it by accident. Note that it doesn't change the final color you select; look at your last image and you'll see the color values are exactly the ...

This is how to FIX it: when importing data sets, make sure to change you change ENCODING option to match your document type when it is set to Automatic, it gives me those weird characters when I change it to match my document type (Unicode UTF-8), it works perfectly

The question is lately edited from an ambiquous state to a better shape. It demands now explicitly predefinable hue quantization and remapping. The accepted answer gives it for Photoshop. The next is for freeware users. Paint.NET has a plugin filter which does hue and saturation range mappings directly. This task needs applying the filter four times to ...

I was also having issues with this. You can bypass the problem by double converting the smart object. For example, when you "Place Embedded" the .jpg is imported as a smart object. Right click and select "convert to smart object". This will effectively make the smart object a smart object. Now when you expand the layer the previous jpg will open as a psb. ...

The problem is common - a good photo exists but the design pattern should be changed to a new image file without losing the plausibility. That means right position, right bumps, twists and bendings, right highlights and shadows, right perspective and right general color which matches with the apparent light in the photo. As already said in comments, bedding ...

Try using a displacement map to emulate the surface texture on the font -- an in progress frame above of something I'm working on.

Use shapes. Get the Ellipse Shape Tool and make a circle, choose a fill color and a stroke color and width Get the Rectangle Shape Tool and holding Alt to subtract make a rectangle over the circle Select the rectangle using the Direct Selection Tool and holding Alt to Duplicate, move it up and scale it vertically Repeat with the next rectangles

I presume if you're using Adobe CC you'll find Hue Cube option to enable it. Hue Cube option is not available in CS6. If you still want it, I'd recommend picking up the plugin Coolours

Don't "Export". Save as.. jpg. The "Export" command assumes the image is for screen display and therefore eliminates any data which may be superfluous for screen rendering, such as a PPI setting. Using Save As, a jpg will retain the PPI setting.

I'm not sure about Arabic fonts, however Roman curvise/script fonts which also have joined letters also experience a similar problem when the letters join or overlap. This solution is for Adobe Illustrator. The first example below shows what happens when you try to apply a stroke to individual letters in the appearance panel. This is similar to your Arabic ...
