Highlight the text layer... and choose Type > Convert to Shape from the menu. The live text will then be converted to a shape layer and be paths with no direct connection to the original font.

Using the work by mayersdesign, this was easy. This is Code 39. The image is backwards/upside-down. Once you turn the image 180 degrees, you can see the proper Code 39 headers. (The beginning is different from the end.)

OK, I must be nuts but I redrew it. Now I get: 710024577829 That is so similar to my other answer I have to think that the first answer (G10024577829) is probably right, and I simply didn't redraw it accurately enough)

I cleaned it up to a degree using Perspective transform, Curves, Dust & Scratches (filter) and Unsharp mask. This useful website: https://online-barcode-reader.inliteresearch.com/ then read the code as: G10024577829 No idea if that's right, but I tried another cleanup of the same image and it read the same, so I am quite confident. The little graphic ...

This is a contrast issue more than a sharpness issue. Try Cmd+Shift+Alt+L for Auto Contrast or Image → Auto Contrast. or Image → Adjustments → Black & White to get specific control.

This picture is way too large with 3024px width and height. That's about 1 meter x 1 meter big with a resolution of 72 dpi. Instagram compresses too large images. And with your picture it has a lot of resizing and compressing to do and the online engine is not the best to do that. The minimum size is 110 x 110 px. So try maybe resizing it yourself to 180 x ...

Follow these steps: 1) Create a new file and adjust the file size as per your requirement. 2) Now, Create a new layer for background. Then, select the image tool for taking image or paint bucket tool for fill the background. 3) Select the background layer and add gradient with layer > layer styles > Gradient overlay and reduce the opacity 8%. 4) Now, Add ...

It won't work with the emboss because it overshadow's (haha) the stroke. I think they used two inner shadows (one white on lighten, one black on multiply) for the relief effect, a regular white stroke and drop shadow. You'll have to play around abit with the adjustments. Also it seems like they upped the saturation of the text (see at the H) with an ...

here are a couple of things that stand out to me: I think the color scheme, especially the orange color used for some buttons and text, could use some work. There are a lot of colors going on in the pages, which makes sense to create a "playful" feel for the site, but the saturation on the orange buttons is too high compared to the rest of the ...

Command/Ctrl+Option/Alt+Shift+N (new Layer) Then... Command/Ctrl+Option/Alt+Shift+E (Merge Visible) Creates a new layer then merges everything visible on that layer, leaving all other layers as they are. You can then Right-Click/Control-Click and Duplicate Layer to a New document.. save... It'll save much faster. I suggest both commands to avoid merging ...

In the Layers palette, make sure you have selected the topmost layer that has visible pixels. Then press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E to make a new layer that has a rasterised version of all visible layers.

Applying sponge to colorless grey cannot increase nor decreace its saturation. The sponge tries to modify only the active layer. Suggestions: Photoshop's adjustment layers are the normal way for nondestructive edits. Layer masks are the way to localize their effect, you can paint black to the mask to decrease the affected area or take it back by painting ...

The sponge tool is used to saturate & desaturate. On 50% grey, it has no colour information to start from, so it can't change it at all.

The only method that will work to some degree, is to make sure raster images for the web are saved with an sRGB colour profile - which is the worldwide standard for colour reproduction on the web. However, even if you have calibrated your own screen/devices, you can't calibrate colours on other users' screens/devices so they will look exactly the same as ...

Comparing monitors man is like comparing cars, they all have 4 wheels, but the rest is all very different. No real fix, so better move on.

Use copy method with alt Basically, there are many of ways to duplicate layers in Photoshop, and I use various methods in different scenarios, but in your case instead of using normal copy paste, try the following: Select the layers/ groups you want to copy Hold down Alt key and drag your layers to another artboard! Make sure you drag only after pressing ...

As @Scott says, some sign places cut vinyl and want sheer vectors: .eps, .ai, .dxf, .dwg, some even take .svg - so it depends upon your specific printer’s pipeline and production technology what file format and graphic methods they need. Clearly a small-format pixel-painted business card design element will need to be redrawn as vector art prior to any use ...

I believe this is a printer preference, not a Photoshop preference. In order to set printer default options, you will need to open the printer's settings from outside of Photoshop (System Preferences) and set that check box.

Think of it in terms of volume. Where PS is good at doing alot of detailed edits on a single photo, or a small batch of photos at a time, LR is built for large volume automation, indexing, sorting. It has a limited feature set identical to PS, basicly most critical image processing features in PS are also available via LR. In addition, with LR you can apply ...

I think you're missing some fundamentals because you say you're saving as vector images but then saying dimensions for them... Vector Images don't have dimensions. JPGs are raster images. Typically if your image is vector, for example drawn using the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator, than you can import that vector file directly to Powerpoint as I believe SVG ...

Well I finally managed to solve it!! Here is my solution... If anyone has anything better... var layers = getLayersData(); alert (layers.length + ' layers found!!!' , 'Message'); function getLayersData() { var lyrs = []; var layers = 1; while (true) { ref = new ActionReference(); ref.putIndex(charIDToTypeID('Lyr '), layers)...

I think this previous Graphic Design StackExchange question and its top answer have a lot of really good information you should peruse before proceeding, although I'm not sure it answers your question directly. My answer would be: no, this won't look alright, you need to start with a higher ppi. A 3"×10" canvas at 762 dpi equates to 63.5 dpi at 120"×36". ~...

Save each set up as a Layer Comp. Then Save Layer Comps to files. To create a Layer Comp, merely toggle visibility of layer(s) on or off, then create a New Layer Comp via the "new" button at the bottom of the Layer Comp Panel (Window > Layer Comps). Do this for each change in visibility you want to save as a file. So... you can create a layer comp of... ...

Though I have some of the same trepidations about this question's fitness for our GD.SE as others, I will hazard answering. As with @Scott in comments, for me it's been a long time since I was in an agency situation, but until a couple of years ago I was one designer of many in an architectural firm, which is similar in dynamic, though project scopes are ...

You used for your button flat design, which is basically a design, that usually either uses a strong shadow with sharp contures in a 45° angle (some shadows fade away in one directen but still have the strong contures at each shadow side...) or they don't use shadow at all. Since this button is just really small it's difficult to make any shadow look ...

I think there're different ways to achieve a similar this effect. Here're several ideas: Use a smart object with Polar Coordinates filter applied. This way you can paint straight lines inside the SO and they'll be transformed to circlular ones — that's quite easy to control, you can put any shapes in the original SO layer, adjust strokes length and position....

With a simplified example, it's not hard, I think this will also cover a realtime problem: I have 2 rectangle layers with an overlap: ctrl_click layer1 thumbnail, to select all pixels in that layer: ctrl_shift_alt_click layer2 thumbnail, now you get overlapped part selected: ctrl_shift_i to invert selection, then click on layer1 thumbnail to select it, ...

Try making a layer mask for it, using the photo itself: desaturate it, adjust the contrast and levels, perhaps some repainting of the thinner lines, and filling in of lighter areas to black, then invert it to create a mask. Once done, you can use the Select and Mask functionality to refine the mask further. Something like this:

I guess you haven't a photo from where the background is already removed and maybe replaced with white like in your example. If you have a high resolution photo, you can draw a clipping path. Drawing it is much work because there can be for ex. 200 holes and everyone of them needs a subpath. Some of them can be made with boolean operations i.e. you have a ...

Since this is a director vs. employee situation, you will ultimately have to do what the director says: don't use Shutterstock, do something creative like you did before. We don't know what he's referring to with the 'before', but i guess you know what he's talking about. Also, this is in fact NOT a graphic design question, but a marketing, concept-related ...

"Overall" is not a good parameter to compare. We would need to make a table comparing specific features. But I will give my 2 cents. Perhaps these are not a big issue. Perhaps they are. One specific limitation is "Integration". There are competent tools for every application adobe has. Vector drawing, photo editing, video editing, compositing, printing. ...

Highlight the marquee tool and under the "Style" drop-down select "Fixed Size". Type in the width of your image and then half of the height of your image (note: if your default unit is set at inches, make sure that you type the "px" after your numbers in the boxes.). With snapping on, click the image and slide the marquee to the edge until it snaps in place. ...

I'm affraid you can't find an answer because there isn't one. Artboards don't work like that, you have to do it manually (or automate it with an Action). get an image large enough to cover the length of your artboards (it seems you already have that) add the image on the first artboard, convert it to a Smart Object*. align it to the left (0,0) add the Smart ...

Hi I can offer you my routine as an aid, cannot get into your set up deeply unfortunately due to time. For reference I am on a Mac Pro 5,1 BTO with 32GB Ram, 12 Core 3GHz, OS 10.12.6, Photoshop CS6 - whilst this may appear old to some, its a rock solid combination and capable of all I need. I build in Photoshop and start all art at 300 dpi for first photo ...

To add shadow effect in Photo you can do the following steps: 1) Open your desired photo in Photoshop. 2) Click on the layer of the image to which you want to add shadow. 3) Click “Layers” in the menu bar then select “Duplicate Layer”. 4) Add different name to the duplicate layer. 5) Click on the “Layer Style” icon in duplicate layer. Now, click on drop ...

The same thing happen to me. I tried all the suggestions and nothing worked. Here is what you have to do. Before applying the Light effects. Convert the Layer into a Smart Object, that solves the issue! Hope it helps


2

As to where: Decide where the light source is, and think about where the shadows and highlights should be placed, and maybe also some coloring. Look at photos and see how the light makes highlights and shadows in the real world. There's no other way to learn. Start practising with low contrast photos which don't have especially dark or bright areas. Be ...

Well, I made two loops. One for count the layers that are going to change and one that adds an effect to specific layers as joojaa said. I also used push() method as Design Phoenix said. Here is my code... function main(){ var doc = activeDocument; var count = []; var curLayerA; var curLayerB; goThroughLayersA(doc); if (...

I guess it's useless to try to fade the wood totally, it's so thoroughly a part of your writing. As well you could insert an outer glow to a brand new writing. This is started from a version which has only a single layer + a white background. At first increase the contrast radically with the curves: Make a heavily feathered selection (here feather=20px) ...

Again layer mask is answer :D since you already have wood layer separated i tried to reproduce same situation but it not such exact though anyway this answer will help you for sure! => Create duplicate of your layer by pressing ctrl/cmd+j and then make group by pressing ctrl/cmd+g. now right click on group and convert group into smart object. => now ctrl/...

Add a background layer that is slightly bigger than your image Fill it with your theme color (this will be deleted, it's only for reference). Select your image only so that you don't modify your reference color. Go in Image > Adjustments > Replace color Select your background and increase the fuzziness to make sure you get everything Adjust the sliders at ...

Unfortunately only one of your images can be fixed easily: It's the last one. There the background is nearly right, only a minor adjustments to blue is needed (except if the medical tool must stay intact, then you need a selection or mask like in other images) They need an adjustment layer, I think Hue&Saturation with Colorize=ON is the right one. That ...

There is a concept known as using the 'wrong tool for the job'. Thing is the wrong tool is either illustrator or you. Creating info-graphics is one of those things where either you learn programming or use a tool designed for your task. Now since you want to design stuff that is unique odds are you need to learn programming. Thing is though the kind of ...

Illustrator doesn't have the wanted functionality in its pie tool, you need extra software or script for full automation. Just here the radial texts seem to have a constant rotational stepping due the constant sector width (=360 degrees/the number of the sectors) Write one dummy text which is nearly sector radius wide, place it manually and make rotated ...

This has been a thing with Photoshop for a long and hairy time - the 500 frame .gif limit is hard-baked into the way PS handles these files... there are workarounds, and cludges. You might consider looking at other software / tools to accomplish your task: AfterEffects, Final Cut, heck even QuickTime & put your output out there as .mp4 video file and ...

I would go with Photoshop and use cmd shift X (liquify). Select the font layer. Rasterize it. CMD SHIFT X (or filters -> liquify). Just use a smaller brush and play around with pulling around.

simple while creating a new document there is a option of "Artboards" disable it.

The most professional way would be to make it in vector, so it is resolution independent. Then, export in any size you see fit. You could try to do this is Photoshop as it has some vector tools that will scale when you change their size. If you have access to Illustrator or a similar vector editing program like Inkscape, that would be the superior option. ...
