This does not work on mine. I have reset everything as, Remove Adobe pref and the the destructive way by holding, Shift-Ctrl & Alt. Still not reset. Why do I always seem to have trouble with such simple directions.

The solution is to (instead of "saving" it) exporting your graphics in Photoshop as a 32-bit PNG (standard if you export with the tick in the box for PNG-transparency) which will make the transparency "true" making it show how you intended in more/all apps that support transparency/alpha channels. For instance this changes the results for the iOS13/Photos ...

I don't know exactly how your document is set up. If the light square is on a separate layer and has transparent background, you could do one of the following two things: Create a Clipping Mask Place the mouse cursor between the layer with the lines and the layer with the square which you want to confine the lines to. Hold down Alt and left click. Create ...

Artists generally try to make their images interesting to get attention. That reduces your options because you need a non-offensive background which must not steal the main object role. But in Photoshop it's quite easy to flatten images to fit your purposes. You only must tinker a little more than to make a hole to the white area and insert an image to the ...

Find a background image on a stock image website. There many of these online, such as Adobe Stock, Dreamstime, iStock etc. Do a search for "fantasy" illustrations. Alternatively just paint your own fantasy background image. In the example below I just chose a random fantasy type image for the sake of showing an example. As far as blending is concerned, the ...

Add an adjustment layer. It works, Put the "Next layer only" switch ON, if you want to limit the effect to one layer. Actually you could open the smart object for edits, but that destroys the idea of fully undoable (=non-destructive) editing. Find it by right clicking the layer in the layers panel.

You can achieve this effect with a Gradient Map adjustment layer. Start with playing with the presets and then customize the gradient stops to achieve the effect you want. Notice how the gradient can easily be inverted by clicking Reverse in the Properties panel.

In short: The key part of the workflow is the "Fit Image…" command (found under the File > Automate) Use it within an action, with some other steps, as outlined below Apply the action to your batch of images The action Open a sample image and then record a Photoshop action using this series of steps: Choose Fit Image command using 742 x 742 as dimensions ...

So if I got this right, you got multiple layers that form a shape... and what you want is to make a selection of all of them put together? I might be way off, but assuming the goal is a combined selection, here's two methods: So normally you Ctrl + Left click the thumbnail to make a selection of from a layer. But you can use Shift + Ctrl + Left click to ...

To combine multiple layers, you can... Group them in the layer's panel Highlight the layers in the panel and choose New Group From Layers from the Layer Panel menu or hit Command/Ctrl+g Groups allow you easy access to all the individual layers if needed. However, it's not possible to run things such as a filter on a Group. You can apply layer styles to ...

Possibly helpful: What are the differences between vector graphics and raster graphics? SVG, much like EPS, is merely a file "wrapper". What is inside the wrapper can be a mix of actual formats - vector or raster or both. Simply having an SVG file never means you have a vector file. All the SVG suffix means is the data is in the SVG wrapper, nothing more. ...

You have increased the brightness number of the color when an RGB color is presented in Photoshop's HSB system. You have kept hue and saturation intact. I guess you want either change the brightness number of every pixel by a certain increment or multiplicand upwards or downwards but keep H and S numbers. Actually it's not 100% clear in the question what ...

I think you have to change the flow(right next to opacity icon). Bring it somewhere around 80%. It is seen 11% as default.

This is a case where you want to use a script to read the size & position of each layer's bounds so that it can dynamically transform them. To use this script, copy the code into a plain text document, save, then rename the extension .txt -> .jsx You can then drag the jsx into Photoshop to run it. Notes: What you're asking for may noticeably stretch ...

Instead of having Drop Shadow on each element I suggest placing the elements in a Group and only apply Drop Shadow to the Group:


1

Drop Shadows are not directional, meaning, the effect applies to all sides of an object and can only be shifted, not selectively turned off for each side. To use selective Drop Shadows, you need to simulate that using black to transparent gradient layers. To completely remove a Drop Shadow effect, click on the Drop Shadow tick on the sidebar, then hit OK.

This can be achieved with a Stack. Select File > Scripts > Load Files into Stack. Click Browse and select your images. Make sure to check Create Smart Object after Loading Layers. Now your images have been stacked on top of each other and packed into a Smart Object. Make sure the Smart Object is selected and select Layer > Smart Objects > Stack Mode > ...

You are right there is no such thing as a transparent pixel! All pixels have a color even fully transparent ones. You can get this value, photoshop just uses a lot of energy to keep people thinking transparent is a color of its own. And for some reason 100% transparent is white by default in Photoshop, this makes PS sometimes a bit problematic for game ...

Duplicate the layer until you have 100% opacity (to be faster, duplicate in 2 times, then all of them 2 times, then all of them 2 more times, and so on). Eyedropper in the opaque layer.

Nothing except UNDO or File > Revert to saved can do it perfectly. If they cannot be used you can try an approximation. It's not exact but it can be usable. A common method to try is offset path: The grey shape is the outlined stroke. The stroke width was 8 mm to get easy to see image for this demo. The red curve is the original path with a narrow stroke, ...

Using a term texel doesn't make much sense in Photoshop: it's pixels. Photoshop doesn't keep color information for transparent pixels: a pixel needs to be at least 1/256 non-transparent to have any color information. Sometimes you might see a color in the Info panel even if opacity is 0%: that's only because there's a slightly-non transparent pixel in ...

This is just a simple font like Univers font free that's been hand edited. In my (very) rough version below I used that font, kerned it out to +115 and "created outlines" with shift+control+O Then I used the Convert Anchor Point tool shift+C to round the corner. Good luck!

To turn off the circle thing, open Control Panel and navigate to Hardware and Sound, then Change Pen Tablet Settings Then Pen Action > Press and Hold > Settings > turn off Enable Press and Hold. This will turn off the circle thing, but you still are going to get modifier keys under cursor, slowdowns and sometimes freezes — those are bugs of Windows Ink ...

Convert your document to grayscale. Press Ctrl / Cmd + A to select all. Press Ctrl / Cmd + C to copy the image to clipboard. Convert your document back to RGB (or CMYK if you prefer). Make a solid color adjustment layer. Select the color you want for the lines. Delete or hide the original image. Alt + left click the layer mask of the solid color layer to ...

There are shortcuts for selecting the first and the last layer. Alt + . → Top layer Alt + , → Bottom layer Photoshop default keyboard shortcuts There's also a shortcut for selecting the next layer above and below: Alt + [ and Alt + ]. Additionally, there are ways to select layers from the document, which I'm a big fan of. Just point at a layer in the ...

For this exact scenario you can press Alt+] — that is a shortcut for Select Next Layer but if you have the top layer selected it'll jump back to the first one. The same is true for opposite: Alt+[ will select top layer if you have the first selected.

Another approach is to take non-shadowed snippets from the opposite side and warp them to fit. Here is used 3 snippets. They are duplicated and shown in the right. I guess this method is usable only if you can keep the non-fixed version secret, no matter how many other persons the image contains. People often become angry if their portraits are fixed by ...

There are a lot of Camera Raw presets that can emulate film photography stock in different ways, like VSCO (no affiliation), or manually, with this particular look I guess you can try a mix of the following: slight blur slight grain texture/noise reduce contrast and luminosity increase shadows add a blue/purple tint I am not going to explain how all this ...

That's not an effect, it's a well designed shot taken in the right light and environment. The sky probably is cloudy which prevents sharp shadows. The man is a little blurred afterwards and the environment is blurred even more to make the suit relatively sharper. The environment blur is partly made by big aperture and long focal length of the camera. That ...

Looks like you are trying import your smart object into a low resolution image. It also looks like you have zoomed in on the image. If you zoom in far enough on any raster image you will see pixels. Don't zoom in. View the image at 100% zoom. Note that everything in Photoshop is raster. Even vectors are rendered as raster images. Also note that Smart ...

I know this is an old thread but an updated answer now would be to use the CC library!

This can't be done unfortunately. Photoshop isn't really a good choice for animating anything except for maybe hand-drawn animation to some extend. You can still salvage your animation: render the contents of your Smart Object to video (File > Export > Render Video); use File > Import > Video Frames to Layers in your original file: this will ...

You can cut the image in photoshop into the 3rds for the trifold and bring each one into illustrator in the artboards. Another method is to lay the image into the background and design the text over the top after you setup the trifold in illustrator. I've also built small bi-fold catalogs in photoshop. If your resolution is high enough the text can look very ...

ABR brushes are a Photoshop brush format, and really only work properly in Photoshop. GIMP has its own brush formats such as GBR and GIH, although it can import ABR brushes, that doesn't mean they will work properly. I don't know much about CorelPainter unfortunately, but I suspect it will be similar. Perhaps it would be better to look for native brush ...

For the resizing part: you can use a script from this answer as a part of an Action that'd crop/resize your image to square: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/a/134135/125506; For background part simply resize and gaussian/average blur your layer as a different step in the action; And then use File > Automate > Batch to run this action on a ...

Use 16 bits/channel. I have this problem too. It affects (0, 96, 156) but none of the other colours in my design. My hunch is that it's a bug in Photoshop, likely caused by some inappropriate rounding somewhere. The only workaround I've come up with is to temporarily increase the bit depth to 16, do all my paint bucketing, then reduce it back to 8. I hope ...

There's no such tool in Photoshop unfortunately. I believe Krita has one.

A photo is put as a layer to a much bigger canvas to get some working room. Then the photo has been split by making a selection with the polygonal lasso. A part was cut & pasted to another layer and rotated 90 degrees: The moved part is distorted to make the seam fit: I found it was easiest to skew the piece and continue with Edit > Transform > Distort....

Every time someone wants to print a file at 300 PPI on sizes beyond 1 m, I really wonder if they needed it. Well, in reality, I know they do not. Let me explain some things about the 300 PPI "myth". Let me start with a flat sheeted offset, for example, a movie poster of good quality of course. On the prepress process, these images need to be transformed ...

the layer is smart object, double click on thumbnail, and switch over automatically open in adobe illustrator as vector witch have many layer. First of all let me clear that Smart Objects aren't layer, They're barely objects(files) and photoshop only contains it's links. When we edit smart objects, Photoshop orders system to execute the file when we edit ...

We had a similar problem once. We had some rather big files that we created as PSBs for a "car wrap". In our case, I believe we ended up having to size the file down small enough to save as a PSD. Then we ended up doing an Import to Illustrator and used the Image Trace. The design was simple enough in our case that we were able to make it work that way....

Just copy Illustrator contents and paste them in Photoshop. Photoshop will ask you what format you prefer. Choose the Smart Object option. Also, you can drag it from Illustrator to Photoshop. Note: We cannot create this kind of Smart Object inside Photoshop because every Smart object created inside Photoshop will be edited in Photoshop (when we double ...

There's a plugin for Photoshop called ScriptingListener: after it's installed, it starts to write a log of most of the actions you do in Photoshop as code (basically everything you can save as an Action can be written as code). The code (Javascript) it gives you is quite difficult to read and can be confusing but! This allows you to put much more different ...

I have no idea how to measure "colorfulness", but we can measure saturation. In fact, you used that word to describe what you need with black and white images scoring low and very saturated images scoring high. Here is the saturation channel of the first image, where you can only see the slight green tint of the histogram on the top-right: And here is ...

It seems that your Canvas Color (the background color of Photoshop) has somehow been set to Custom and that the custom color is white. If you right-click outside the document you can choose the background color you want.

Sorry for my english I'm from Costa Rica. But It's easy you just have to put your background image out of any artboard (like a background layer) and when you export your files in the export option, just clik "include overlaping areas".

A RAW overexposed - that's badly set camera! I guess the image sensor in your camera is a bit smaller than full 35mm and you didn't check the exposure. Small sensor cameras have much less room for lousy settings than bigger ones. If the camera allows exposure bracketing learn to use it in the next flights. You must take more shots, but the film costs are ...

Just to add another option for people coming across this question: For something with only a few characters/shapes (like a logo or brand name), the Pen (path-drawing) tool in Photoshop can be really quite helpful for this task. Working with the bezier curves can be difficult depending on how rounded/sharp your shapes are, but I found it quite easy to use ...

It tells how to convert your artwork to physical units. So essentially its how many pixels form an inch. If you design for print you should set it to 150-300 and type physical dimensions of your output (not pixels). If not leave it as 72. For historical reasons 72 means value not set, which in turn means designed for a screen device. (Why 72? Adobes ...
