Old trick.... Layer Style Stroke Just add a Stroke Layer Style to the layer. Areas will immediately become visible. To see some semi-transparent areas it can be helpful to add a temporary working layer that is a solid color fill, white or black, below the layer in question. You can then mask or delete the areas as necessary and merely remove the layer ...

If you are not forced to stick with Photoshop goto GIMP and adjust the alpha channel in every pixel to 255 with Color > Curves: Changing alpha to 255 keeps RGB values but removes all transparency. This works if the image has RGB color mode with alpha channel and the faint look is caused by the transparency. This is useless if the RGB values are removed ...

Simple... Here I made a Clipping Path first. Then Photoshop will work magic through Content-Aware Fill. Check the tutorial; you are going to learn how do I remove it.

This is great. Here's the new location of ScriptingListener plug-in. I only wanted to get a 'save as JPG' dialog box so I eliminated the subdirectory and had to change DialogModes.NO to DialogModes.ALL. The script will show up in the Scripts menu if you put it in /Applications/Adobe Photoshop <your version>/Presets/Scripts and restart. I created an ...

I've made myself a script that adds/removes a magenta outline to the active layer — so every transparent pixel becomes visible — and I have it assigned to F4. Limitation is that it'll freak out if there are several strokes already on the layer or remove an existing stroke effect. To use it save this to a name.jsx to your Photoshop/Presets/Scripts folder, ...

You can add a "Threshold Adjustment Layer" and set the Threshold Level to 255. All pixels lighter than the threshold are converted to white; and all pixels darker are converted to black. Since we moved the threshold to the right, we made all pixels black. Depending on the layer, you might not be able to view the layer mask selection.

Try Inkscape. It's free and you get vector images (which can be easily rasterized to PNG or JPG). In the left there's 5 drawn random shapes and in the right you can see what's got by selecting the symbol sprayer tool and hovering the cursor right and left a couple of seconds. Scaling and rotating the sprayed objects are not allowed in my example as you can ...

Gradient Map most likely. The color overlay may be secondary and not the overall factor.

Semi-easy version :) convert each layer to a smart object manually or using this script; RMB on the new smart objects and select Convert to Linked. Photoshop will ask for a folder to export all smarts as files; delete all .psb files but one; back to PS: start recording a new action: rmb on one layer and select Relink to file, select one file that left; play ...

If you are using ordinary layers I don't think there is an easy way to replace each layer. One way to do this is to use Smart Objects. Right-click the initial layer and choose Convert to Smart Object. Duplicates of the smart object are all references to the same layer. When you double-click one of the duplicates the smart object will open in a new window. ...

You can measure it by Measurement Log! You just select your path and go to Window to load up the Measurement Log

Would need more clarity...It seems as if you have different DPI settings, where one might be at 100DPI and the other at 200DPI, thus changing the layer size. If this is the case, adjust it in the menu to match; In the menu select "Image>Image Size" then adjust the resolution(DPI) accordingly.

If you have Acrobat, there are markup features and tools within Acrobat itself. There's no reason to use Photoshop for general editing markup. Just open the PDF in Acrobat, use the features there and save. -- You can draw, type, highlight, add comments, etc. all in Acrobat. SEE HERE For the Adobe help regarding Acrobat markup.

If you have access to Acrobat Pro: Option 1: Backup your PDF file Open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat (Pro) Select the page, right click, edit in Photoshop Do your edits in Photoshop Save the image (you might have to merge the layers first) Return to Acrobat to find the updated image in place Repeat for the following pages Option 2: Backup your PDF file Open ...

I am writing these instructions for Adobe Illustrator but the concept applies to any program. Get the distance the width of your text/text box. I created text that is 7" W. Make sure the text is centered align. Create a box that is half the width of your text box. Use the align panel to align your box to the right of the artboard. Select both the ...

The warning you have circled in the example means "out of gamut for CMYK" - so I suspect you either changed the colour mode to CMYK, or you are viewing the CMYK proof colours. Make sure you are in RGB colour mode, and switch off CMYK proofing: CTRL+Y toggles it on or off.

Gaussian blur makes the effect partially. But it doesn't make the foggy bridges between the parts as you seemingly have noticed. Here's a slightly more developed attempt: In the bottom there's the background layer In the middle there's a text. It's rasterized for free adjustments and effects. It has got a slight gaussian blur and another filtering Noise >...

You are correct- Editable text- Effect>Blur>Gaussian blur- then play with the setting-

The issue was sorted out as it follows: indeed, because it was scanned as a photo, the document inherited a light blue background. I edited that in Photoshop by adjusting Image->Adjustments->Levels, I picked the color from the background and it turned it into white automatically

I found a nice workaround. When you import a new brush pack and you see a number below it, which indicates the brush size. Just click on the brush, then below click on the (+) button, create a new preset with exact the same brush but UNCHECK the "capture size". Now you got the same brush without a predetermined. Just erase the other one with the ...

In Illustrator, type some bold text, and apply a black stroke to the letters, and a different coloured fill for some letters. Do Effect > 3D > Extrude & Bevel Change the length of the black part by changing the Extrude Depth. Example

No way of doing that in Photoshop, unfortunately. A workaround would be: create a temp channel from your selection to store it; move your pixels with Free Transform command (Ctrl+T); load your temp channel as selection and select the spot channel; use Edit > Transform > Again menu command (Shift+Ctrl+T) to move the selection of the channel to the same ...

I've made a script for that — Split Layer to Islands — it's a part of a free scripts pack Scriptorator: Note that in your file assets seem to be quite close to each other so maybe you'd require to upscale the image to 400% or 800% using the Nearest Neighbour sampling method before splitting the layers. Then you can resize it back using the same method to ...

Yes, it's an option in the Adjustments panel: When it's turned off masks will be added only if there's an active selection in the document.

You can try to place the images to different layers in Photoshop and let the upper layer have blending mode Difference. That makes black all those pixels which are same in both images. The black area can be selected and used to generate a layer mask for the image which contains the interesting target. In theory it should be perfect. It will work exactly in ...

There is no option to set the images resolution with the automate PDF presentation. I suggest you create an action "Save as PDF" where you will be able to set the image quality : Window > Actions (create an action and record your steps) Then you can do a batch treatment with your action on all your psd files : File > Automate > Batch (and select your ...

Photopea can edit this. I just tried it. See example The words pop and candy have two text layers each, so you have to double click the "T" icon in the layers panel for each text layer associated with it, and retype the words. GIMP doesn't support Photoshop layer effects, so this won't work in GIMP. Although that's not to say you couldn't create something ...

If you rasterize a text layer and paste to it anything which has the same color as the original text you get that anything with the same honey effect. Here's the text Pop all effects disabled. All other layers are disabled in the layers panel. (it's text along a path for the slightly curved appearance) Here's my new text after rasterizing the layer. It's ...

As I did not have a Photoshop Licence and I was starting to lose too much time on this, I found a website that allowed me to generate embedded screen shots in the iphone pic: mockuphone.com (I am not affilied by any way to this website, just found that it did exactly what I wanted and for free)

As already said by others Photoshop has no function like "decide and make a new selection which contains the next object in this single layer bitmap image" But you can generate a script or even record an action which lets you to click the next shape and after it does the rest for you. You click a shape and press a function key to run your action. I tried ...

I guess the actual shape is much more complex. This answer covers them if the coloring is still one color on white background, only the edges are more or less fading to white like in the example. One trick is to mask a solid 1800ff layer with a layer mask and have a new white background layer. If your white-red image layer is pasted to the layer mask as is ...

I don't think this is possible but a fast way to do this is to quick-duplicate the style with alt + drag or option + drag

So, after spending half a day with it I finally solved it myself.

The fill and stroke in the contextual menu are raster based. Use the Fill and Stroke options for shape/vector layers in the Control Bar across the top of the screen. As for arrowheads.... To the best of my knowledge, Photoshop has no function to add arrowheads to path drawn with the Pen Tool. You will need to manually draw any arrowheads or switch to a ...

DPI is not the resolution of a digital image. It's the print output resolution. If you don't understand why, then have a look at this article: The Myth of DPI. The main problem I see is that you have anti-aliasing disabled in the tool options for the Poylgon Select tool, which will make pixels jagged when you fill the selection. Example showing zoomed in ...

It seems that you are using Nearest Neighbor interpolation, which is the right choice for this operation. What causes your troubles is probably that you have the Reference point location set to the middle: Your image is scaled down from 75x75 px to 60x60 px. Since you ask Photoshop to keep the same center, the image is reduced by 7.5 px on all four sides. ...

Change your workflow The problems you are encountering can effectively be avoided if you start working in a more layered fashion. I recommend using separate Solid Color layers with Layer masks. This way you keep color and opacity separated so you can easily change one without affecting the other.

It's hard to say, but my initial reaction is that the lines are all uniform white strokes. A dark textured layer has then been put on top and partly erased in certain areas. Then an outer glow added to the logo. Maybe some other filters applied. Hard to recreate as the designer probably just played around with various filters and transparency settings until ...

I don't think you need a script for that. You could just record an action that fills the current selection with the foreground color and assign a keyboard shortcut to it. Then you can use the "Select Tool: Single Line" to select a single line of pixels and trigger your shortcut. Should make for a super fast workflow.

As far as i know 8 bit equals 256 colors, you can choose to have a color transparent (gif) which leaves you with 255+1 solid alpha. Rgb = 24 (3 × 8) 256 for red, 256 for green, 256 for blue (about 16,7 mil. Combinations) , adding another 8 bits for a 256 degree alpha chanel, so 4x8 = 32bits for rgba

An easy (not perfect) solution could be to use Filter > Distort > Pinch. Make sure the circle is centered in your document. Use Filter > Distort > Pinch and set Amount to a negative number. If an Amount of -100% isn't enough, you can press Alt + Ctrl / Cmd + F to reapply the filter. Afterwards, you can scale the circle down to the desired size.

This can be done here are 4 approaches that work. No apprach is simple to do but its possible. I will describe the conceptually easiest option. Option1: Using polar coordinates Use the offset filter to move your circle center exactly to the middle of your document. Apply polar coordinates. Select the region that is now a strip in your image and scale it ...
