First of all, to do this, you must select the Convert Point tool from the TOOLBAR (you CANNOT do this by pressing ALT/OPTION while using the pen tool)! To create a corner point with just ONE LEADING HANDLE: Convert the anchor point to a corner point with zero handles (if not one already), by clicking the point once with the Convert Point tool. Next, click ...

I presume you mean a heavier, darker line rather than thicker. Thickness is dependent on brush width & pressure [if you have a Wacom or similar]. Your issue seems to be your brush setting. You have Opacity 6%, Flow 100%. That means that your brush will almost instantly be painting the maximum opacity you have set - just 6%. Once that value is reached on ...

You can't adjust the curve of the section preceding the highlighted anchor because that anchor is a corner point and not a smooth point. With a corner point each side of the anchor is treated individually. With a smooth point both sides of the anchor are treated symmetrically or in unison. The handle you see is for the next section of path which will be ...

If you are having difficult with clicking... Click/highlight the mask thumbnail in the Layers Panel Open the Channels Panel (Window > Channels) Turn on visibility for the mask channel Paste. The Option/Alt-click or Option/Alt-Shift-click on the mask thumbnail are merely shortcuts for these steps. If you open the Channels Panel, then use the shortcuts ...

By default Photoshop uses the center of an object for the start of a radial gradient. You simply need to ensure the Align with Layer option is ticked. Just draw a circle and apply a radial gradient fill. That's all there is to it. You can even use a Gradient Overlay Layer Style.

Looks like you are merely clipping a visible line to the shape below - that's not going to work for what you are trying to do. If I've read your question correctly, sounds like you want create an actual vector mask. Basically, you'd use the Pen Tool to make a Path (in the tool options set "path" instead of "shape"), then do Layer > ...

One object should not act as both a visible object and a clipping mask. Clipping masks should be separate objects. Undo your mask Copy the parent shape - Edit > Copy Paste in Front - Edit > Paste in Front Hold Shift and select the shape you want to mask Now create the clipping mask.

Someone created a tutorial on youtube on how to do it in Davinci Resolve (free), fairly straightforward. https://youtu.be/Z8-gNkDT3HU

Make a mailmerge document that is essentially blank but position the name field so that if the certificate image were placed there the name would be aligned correctly. Make the merge, export to PDF. Open the PDF and apply the PSD as a watermark "100%" "behind text". If PSD cannot be placed, "save as copy" the PSD to e.g. TIF

Select, and copy and paste the logo to a new layer Select the original layer in the layers panel Select a rectangle around the original logo and do Edit > Fill, and choose the content aware option. This will erase the logo from that layer and fill the gap based on the surrounding content. Move your logo into position

The "grey" is not the "photos background". The grey is the photo. You can't cut and move a portion of a photo and expect things to magically repair where you've cut something. You need to do that manually. Select and copy the portion of the logo you wish to remain so it is on its own, new, layer. Just as you've covered up the right side ...

You are incorrect here big time: "Illustrator is only useful for animations". Nope, actually, Illustrator has little to do with animation. Then yes, for high-detail composite images, some illustrators will combine AI and PS at different stages of a piece, because each software comes with different features & effects, some only available in AI, ...

Why do chefs use both a frying pan and an oven to cook a steak? Well, because each tool offers a unique ability. The pan can sear where the oven can't. While the oven can heat without overcooking the exterior where the pan can't. It's important to realize that the vector features in Photoshop are not as sophisticated and broad as Illustrator's vector ...

Why would someone use both Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop for a static drawing? Because they... need it? Because they... want to? Software is a tool. If the tool suits your needs you use it. You can push a program to the limit and/or you can combine it with different software to o different things. Here is a collection of images. A) is a good example of a ...

First off, I would say that Illustrator is not primarily used for animation. It can be used for that but it is certainly not it's only use. Illustrator is a vector based drawing application. It primarily draws objects based on a mathmatical coordinate type system. Photoshop is (primarily) a raster based image editor (or pixel based). And while they do have ...

The problem for many folks is that most printer makers distribute Windows drivers that enforce an RGB abstraction. E.g. even if your document is CMYK color space, the Windows print driver will convert it to RGB and then back to CMYK before printing (yes, a double color-space transformation.. its awful). This means even if you make a document with pure ...

The GIF format cannot handle frame delay times in smaller increments than one hundreth of a second. It's not an issue with Photoshop, it's a limitation in the GIF format itself and it's a limitation you cannot overcome. To make a 3 second GIF you therefore need to make the frame delay divisible with 3. Both 0,03 and 0,04 should work fine for this. However, ...

Ctrl/Cmd + Click on the Layer thumbnail is better to select back a layer, than using magic wand on it, either if it's flat color. You can also lock the transparent pixel of the layer with this button on layer panel and then fill it with color.

You could use the transparent pixel lock in the layers panel, then when you do Edit > Fill to fill with a new 100% solid colour, it will have the same transparency as the image because the transparency is locked.

Depends a bit on construction of the file. However, you can simply apply a Color Overlay Layer Style and set its blend mode to Color. Here, I've merely duplicated the group of purple rectangles and apply the layer style to the new group.

Magic wand makes the same results in the 2nd time only if the colors are the same as in the 1st time. If you have painted something to the selected area so that the color at the edge has changed at least the anti-aliasing zone will be different. Workarounds: Save the selection with a name before using it. Then you can call it back. Make the experiments to ...

The Magic Wand can be a pretty terrible selection tool and other methods can typically be better. However, with the Magic Wand tool selected, adjust the options in the Control Bar across the top of the screen. Reduce the value of Tolerance Reduce the Sample size Untick Anti-Alias All of these can result in more defined edges when using the tool.

You can do this automatically by using the Photomerge feature in Photoshop. The images do not have to be the same size for this to work. File -> Automate -> Photomerge Choose Auto for the Layout Browse for your images that you would like to merge Press OK. Photoshop will create a new document with the merged images.
