I believe the confusion comes from the fact that the Hue/Saturation adjustment offers to manipulate Lightness, not Brightness. HSB (Hue/Saturation/Brightness, also called HSV) isn't the same as HSL (Hue/Saturation/Lightness). You can read about the difference on Wikipedia's article on HSL and HSV. From that article we learn that conversion from HSV to HSL ...

Photoshop has a few preset 3D shapes. Sphere is one of them. To use it you you have an image layer and apply 3D > New shape from layer > Sphere Photoshop assumes the image layer is a plane map of spherical surface and creates the spherical map: The sphere can be rotated freely and the light conditions can be adjusted with the 3D panel tools. The ...

As user joojaa already said your adventures with blending modes have nothing to do with the additive RGB synthesis of white. The obvious partial transparency is another unexplained thing that you have generated by doing something which is not shown to us. In the next image the leftmost 25% is original, the rest 75% has the red channel turned to 255 with ...

Yes it's possible in Illustrator. Select both cherries and do Object > Compound Path > Make. When you export to SVG, both cheries will be one single path. Example <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <svg version="1.1" id="Layer_1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://...

2 rectangles butted against each other. One 90px wide and solid back, one 10px wide and a gradient from 100% to 0%.

That "border" is merely anti-aliasing. Draw a vector shape.. export or save it to a raster format, the anti-aliasing will be introduced. You could also use the Shape Tools to draw a raster/pixel shape and the anti-aliasing will be introduced the moment you let go of the mouse.

It's called a clipping mask. Hold down Alt and move your mouse over the line that separates the two layers. When the cursor changes to this , click it. Note: You can also select a layer and in the main menu do Layer > Create Clipping Mask, or alternatively you can use the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+G

Seemingly too complex answers given or for wrong system (=nothing accepted). What's going on: The questioner has saved his image without a color profile or with a wrong color profile after making some edits. He believes the RGB numbers in the image file are still good, but without the right color profile Windows and application programs cannot interpret the ...

Create a new layer ...

I am not sure you are planning your print the right way. As I understand your project will be printing black and green on the cardboard: So you should separate your files, a plate for the black and a plate for the green. But if you want white over green, you need a white plate that will look simply the same as the black plate, using white opaque ink. There ...

The script isn't counting word lengths or anything like that. It's merely looking for a character... and then using that character as the catalyst for a new layer. In the case of the original script, it looks for a space. You merely need to replace that space with something else. If you just want to split the list based upon existing line feeds within the ...

Not entirely sure this is what you want.... If you want something to fill the canvas and maintain proportions, this script isn't for you. I do this all the time. I struggled, like you, to find something that would not maintain proportions and merely fill the canvas, stretching or squishing as necessary. I tried searching for where I may have originally ...

I guess you have got a version without text Adobe Stock - paid versions should come without watermarks. But you have purchased a JPG version of the image. JPG cannot have transparent background. I'm afraid they do not give your money back nor change the image to PNG or other version which has transparent background, but nothing should prevent you to try to ...

On a basic level you could've used Actions to automate these steps, there's one issue though: Action would record an absolute path for your pdf, so having something like "save next to my file" isn't really possible. That's where scripts come to rescue. You can use a ScriptingListener Plugin to record most of the things you do in PS as code. The ...

It is important to note that Opacity and Fill behave differently when used in conjunction with "Special 8" blend modes. To quote the source: These blend modes behave differently when Fill Opacity is adjusted, compared to when standard Opacity is adjusted. The blend modes that aren’t members of this Special 8 group react the same to both Fill and ...

This is only a too long comment: You have got a perfect answer from user Alexander Samual Dunnett for the presented question. Unfortunately the question didn't present what you want. User joojaa guessed it and wrote a warning. The comments revealed that you want to combine 2 grayscale photos to get one which is a substitute for a photo which was taken with ...

There is no general rule saying that smart objects need to have the same color profile as the master document. It all depends on what you are trying to achieve. A smart object with a different color profile than the master document will automatically be converted as if it was merged and converted to the color profile of the master document. And everything ...

select your frames, add a layer effect. Only the first selected has the effect, BUT reselect all frames, click again like you are going to modify the effect and only click ok, now all of them should have the effect applied !

The problem is almost certainly caused by JPG artifacts in your original image. I concur with the others who have responded here. I checked and can see them in your coloured image, so they are already there, although not really visible until you apply levels/curves/equalize or try to manipulate the colours. Don't edit JPGs in Photoshop unless you have no ...

Sometimes you have to make Adobe as your default printer before saving. That has worked for me in the past.

This is what the "Merge Channels..." feature in the Channels Panel menu is made for. Open your three grayscale images and select "Merge Channels..." from the Channels Panel Menu: Tell it you want to merge an RGB image with 3 channels and click "OK." Finally, select which of the open files you want to map to each channel: Click ...

The image in your post already contains noise/artefacts — maybe it's because it was compressed by GDSE. Here's one of the image channel compressed with Levels: If your original image doesn't have this noise and contains only pure colors, the issue you have is probably with color profile. Default color setting in Photoshop has a Use Dither conversion option —...

I made myself a script that converts 3 top layers to R, G and B channels, output is the 4th layer below them. Feel free to use/modify. Input 3 layers for each channel + BG layer: Output: function main() { var i; var channels = ['Rd ', 'Grn ', 'Bl ']; // making 3 top layers invisible for (i = 0; i < 3; i++) { activeDocument.layers[i]....

Here is one way to do it. I assume the three images have the same dimensions. Open the three grayscale images. Choose the "Red" image. Use Select > All (Ctrl /Cmd + A) to create a selection that covers the whole image. Use Edit > Copy (Ctrl /Cmd + C) to copy the selection to clipboard. Use File > New (Ctrl / Cmd + N) to create a new ...

Here is a script that automatically adds a color chip for each color in an image. It makes use of indexed color's ability to create a color table and uses those colors to draw the chips. The script is a bit raw and doesn't check for every possible thing that could go wrong. Let me know if something doesn't work as intended. I haven't commented every line in ...

Alternative suggestion, again you should record this as an action then use it in a batch on copies of your originals. Image menu > Image size. Set to 66.22% Image menu > Canvas Size, set to 151% both ways, using the centre of the canvas & setting Canvas extension colour to White.

This is a total mixup of almost right and almost wrong answers dating back to 2012. In 2021, this is very much doable via the Preferences panel in either Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign. Each of these have a Guides section where you can definitely change the color of the guides. Illustrator InDesign Photoshop

The striped texture in your example can be a real photo of cardboard which is curved and also has a dimples. The grey nearly horizontal lines are not grooves, they are on the surface with no depth. The text has Bevel&Emboss layer effect as you show. The texts have the same striped texture as the cardboard, but it doesn't by any means follow the curvature ...

I'm not sure I really see what the problem is. Aren't you just missing the paper texture? Set the layer mode of the Text layer to "Soft Light", text colour to 50% grey, and try Bevel and Emboss settings like these: Obviously I don't have the same font here.

After doing some research I was able to develop my first Photoshop script to do the trick. This script might be a little dirty (I'm new to JavaScript). The script does the following: Ask the User for a filename. Ask the User to select a save folder. Save as .jpg Save as .png Alert the User that the operation is completed. // ASK FOR FILENAME var filename = ...

To my knowledge, Photoshop can only add arrowheads to straight lines, made using the Line tool. The Path tool seems to not have an arrowheads option. However, Illustrator can do this more easily and gives extra control to styling paths and arrowheads.

Ctrl-Click on the layer thumbnail image in the Layers panel to select all pixels in that layer.

Photoshop wouldn't be my first choice to recreate something like this. To be honest I think it's a job for a vector image editor. For example, you could use Inkscape's 3D Boxes tool. Inkscape is free and Open Source. Another possibility would be to use actual 3D software such as Blender which is also free and Open Source. Anyway, here's an example using ...

Use smart objects to easily edit skewed graphics. Use the Rectangle Tool (U) and draw the side of the object. It helps when you know the actual dimensions when creating the rectangle so you have the right proportions. Right-click on the rectangle and convert it to a smart object. Use Distort Transform to move the anchor points to fit the object. Double-...

It's probably because there isn't much contrast between rocks and sea/water/surface. Both are darker at same time. Further, it would still might work if you had a high resolution image. But the one you've shared, has very low resolution, so quick selection doesn't work as intended. You can try hit and trial and might end up getting an okay result, but I'd ...

You can do this no matter how you generate your initial mask, the trick is only that you do the fade on the mask after you auto-generated it. Use the magic wand or 'select subject' to isolate your medal & ribbon. From the Layer menu > Layer Mask > Reveal Selection. This will add a mask to your background to hide it Select the mask in Layers Use a ...

The quick select has no parameters other than brush size. I think the trouble is there's not much of an edge for it to work with. I had a quick go using your image & tbh it was easier to select it all & remove the 'sea' than start by adding 'rocks'. The end result wasn't magnificent & I'd be more inclined to use the lasso.

I'd go with Adobe InDesign or Affinity Publisher if you're going for high quality print. If not you could do that in Photoshop or Word.

I was writing this answer for some other recently asked question but it was closed later for being duplicate, so instead I'm writing it here. Although not sure about the technique used to achieve this but I think it's quite not impossible to achieve similar effect if you can spend some time in Photoshop. Further you'd need a lot of masking and separate ...

When a smart object is duplicated, it is linked to the original one. If you want to create a new smart object based on another one without this link, you need to do right click on the layer in the layer panel and choose New smart object via copy. In your example you already have a smart object linked, so you need to copy it with new smart object via copy and ...
