Based upon this .. I can only assume you mean that slightly lighter grey area around the entire piece.
Circled in green here...
That would appear to be a black somewhere which fails to match a black in the "other" application. I.E. In AI it's 100%K.. in PS it's 10R10G10B which looks like black but is not the same as 100%K.
I'm afraid, in general it would ...
It's a lot of manual work on Photoshop without a 3D software package (the reference image doesn't look like it was made on a 3D software). Short of a full tutorial:
make multiple copies of the texture layer, you'll need one per visible side of the box
get a reference juice box to cover with the textures
use Transform and distort each texture layer to fit ...
.. there is a thin, almost transparent color around the design which I am
unable to avoid ..
Without a screenshot, we can't know what you have there, but make sure the border in your AI file does not have a stroke or shadow or glow or similar effect applied.
Select that border in AI and look at the Appearance panel to check if there's anything applied to ...
The given example with credit cards, a straw, metallic items, water drops and crystals is quite a complex composition. I guess you want a box and a straw both covered with a texture pattern, but the pattern should be seen as placed on the surfaces of the items. Your current attempt has the texture as it was cut from a piece of flat cardboard. Making parts of ...
...As for your second question, when you remove pixels in Photoshop using a mask, it still keeps pixel data. For example if I remove a part of an image
and then run Layer > Layer Mask > From Transparency and hide the mask you'll notice that all the pixels were restored even though they aren't presented in the original layer:
And when you save PNG24 ...
Many of your linked examples look somehow "simplified" like they were photographed statues or 3D models with no realistic surface textures. The grain and single hue color are added afterwards.
The grain and colorizing are already described well in another answer, but making the simplified version needs some attention.
Photoshop's noise and grain filters ...
An old question but maybe this will help to someone. Scripting on a basic level is very simple in Phootshop and usually comes down to several steps:
you download and ...
Hold Shift while dragging.
To make matters easier, you can also use the Options bar just below the pull-down menus (Window > Options to make it visible if you don't have it already) to lock or unlock aspect ratio while transforming: the option bar shows W(idth) and H(eight) percentages. Between these two fields is a chain icon which can be broken or closed. ...
Photoshop has a Grain Texture filter, and a Hue/Saturation adjustment which can also be used to colourize an image like that.
Filter > Texture > Grain - there are various types of grain which you can experiment with
Select the image layer in the layers panel, and hit the Layer Adjustment icon (looks like a circular half-moon). Choose Hue/Saturation - select ...
It's going to be difficult to remove these lines completely, however there is an approach which can reduce them to an extent. The result is not perfect though.
I used GIMP and the G'MIC plugin's Fourier Transform filter to suppress the stripe pattern, but if you can find a Fourier Transform plugin* for Photoshop, you could also do something similar.
Actually this kind of problem is really hard to solve in Photoshop without affecting the quality but I will try to do my best.
If we are talking about only this picture
At first duplicte your original layer to use in further or prevent any accident.

Actually, a screenshot could be better but I will try to explain you as I understood.
Let's think that you have an AI file with layers under layers and you need to control them in AE as seperate layers. At first gather all shapes and objects under one layer. After that choose the main layer and click the drawer button (options - righ top corner of the ...
That is not a GIF, that is an MP4 file, but ok, that is a minor detail.
You need a program to draw the elements, a person, the screen, the shadow. Use a vector-based program.

I've made a script to split a layer to separate islands, it might help:
It' a part of a free Scriptorator scripts pack. Then you can run Layer > New Layer Based Slice from the top menu to create slices based on the result.
Here is a semi-manual method with some help from an Action.
Use Magic Wand to select one of the shapes. Adjust the Sample Size and Tolerance settings. The selection doesn't have to be perfect.
Create a new Action, set a Function Key like F3 (without Shift or Control) and start recording.
Use Select > Modify > Expand and choose an Expand By value which is ...
My answer is similar to Tetsujin's method, but created non-destructively using a Threshold adjustment layer, grouped with the image layer, then the group set to "Multiply" mode. A noise filter can then be applied to a purple background Smart Object.
For greater similarity to your examples, it's probably best to start off with a photograph taken with low ...
From original image - yeah, don't ask ;)
Add adjustment layer - Threshold
Add layer mask [reveal all].
Select all, copy, alt/click mask, paste.
Invert. This should leave the black but make all the white transparent.
Add new layer, drop it behind.
Use paint bucket with flat purple.
Filter > Noise > Add Noise
I see this is an old question, but anyway, here's another quick(ish) way to do it in Photoshop.
Change the image mode to Multichannel, then go into the channels and delete the yellow channel, leaving only the Cyan and Magenta.
Double click the Cyan channel, choose a green colour from one the Pantone spot colour library.
Double click the Magenta channel, ...
Its the actual feather producing that edge blur.
If you need a rounded rectangle, use the Rounded Rectangle Tool, with settings for corner radius, fill, etc: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/how-to/edit-rounded-rectangles.html
Not claiming it's used (see NOTE1), but the result resembles how BW photos in the past came out from photographic printing. Here's described one old process for hobbyists http://www.alternativephotography.com/an-introduction-to-the-gum-bichromate-process/ One makes his own photosensitive paper which will take ink differently depending on how strongly it's ...
The technique is called solarization. It can be achieved in a b/w photo dark room, when the printing paper is exposed and already in the developing fluid for a bit, the room lighting is quickly turned on and off, so light areas get exposure too. Durations of exposure and development can be varied to achieve a variation of different results.
Photoshop does ...
If these images don't already have a 1:1 (square) aspect ratio, then scaling to a 1:1 aspect ratio will distort the image. You may have to crop them to the desired aspect ratio first.
Cropping could be recorded as an action and run as a batch, but this would apply the same crop to every image, and that may not be what you want. You may have to crop them ...
Open the original image in Photoshop. Apply a layer of Gradient Map
(Image 1 and 2).
Duplicate the layer and mask the part you don't want to be white
again; to fix the things (Image 2).
Create an adjustment layer for Levels (Image 3).
Tweaking and playing with these layers might give you the result you want :)
Here's a modified version. This will scan subfolders for jpeg files (line 28), save a panorama with a name of the first jpeg file + -pano and will remove the jpeg files in the end:
var runphotomergeFromScript = true; // must be before Photomerge include
//@includepath "/C/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CC 2019/Presets/Scripts/"
Another method is to use Image Assets feature.
Enable it in File > Generate > Image Assets.
eg: Name each layer to Layer 1.png, Layer 2.png...
You must name the layers with different names.
Photoshop will automatically save the layers as png in an assets folder.
See the iamge below:
Workaround in GIMP:
In GIMP making a custom brush is made especially easy: The content of the clipboard is automatically available in the brushes collection. It can also made permanent by applying Edit > Paste as new brush.
I painted a radial gradient black to transparency and copied it to the clipboard. That's my automatic clipboard brush. Here's one ...
Select the shapes you want to use as a mask.
Copy them with Ctrl / Cmd + C (or cut them with Ctrl / Cmd + X if you don't need them for anything else).
Select the group.
Paste with Ctrl / Cmd + V and the shapes will become a vector mask on the selected group.
Stop using Photoshop for the 3D part. There are better options out there, and free. I will dive into it later.

To me, it was easier creating a new document with "Artboards" unchecked, then you select all layers under the artboard you wanna export and right click to duplicate to the new document you just created. I found this question after searching google, because I was working with artboards on Photoshop and there are some bugs, e.g., when you duplicate one or more ...
Here are two different methods to dynamically blur the edges of a shape.
Method 1: Gaussian blur a Smart Object
Right-click the layer and select Convert to Smart Object to convert your layer to a Smart Object and enable applying filters dynamically.
Enter Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur to apply blur to the layer. Press OK when done.
Now a Gaussian blur ...
Compositing can be more difficult than it may appear. At least if you are seeking a believable composite. I think your sample is okay, but not great. Some angles aren't really correct and the shadowing/lighting could be a bit better. But it's not a "bad" composite overall.
You can easily find thousands of examples related to poor compositing.
Just a ...
To my knowledge there's no direct way to change these hotkeys. There're several predefined hotkeys like that that can't be changed (selecting channels, setting blending modes, etc). For a veeery long time there're topics on the photoshop feedback forum for changing the way hotkeys work but for the moment we have what we have.

It's going to be difficult to obtain a clean selection using the kind of selection tools you have already tried. In cases such as this the human eye and manual editing skills can trump anything automated.
Don't mess around with manual erasing. You can get much cleaner results by creating a vector mask manually, using the Pen Tool to create the curves.
You can use luminance noise reduction, but the overall result will be to lose detail.
If that is part of a much larger image, sharpening or using high-pass on the result might regain some apparent edge detail, but on that small segment it's hard to tell.
Quick bluff through Photoshop, no re-sharpening as I don't know what needs to be sharpened from so ...
Hold shift key and drag the edge that you would like to transform. I found that disabling the link between width and height in two places wasn't enough...
Always experiment with combos of Ctrl, alt, and shift keys.
On a mac I'm guessing it's command key instead of Ctrl key.
Mind the date for the correct answer.

Keep in mind, however, that it's a very common problem that does not have a perfect known solution (at least to my knowledge). Most of the time you can approximate what PS does, but every now and then there's a subtle difference that no one just knows what's happening.
Too long for a comment, so daring an answer, even though I'm not an expert in planet design. I see several problems with your moon, if its surface is not flat:
If there is relief, the edges of the moon against deep space must be somewhat jaggy (and of course match the relief near the edge).
Shadows cannot be the same everywhere. There are almost no shadows ...
You can use actions to automate things.
Basically it works like this:
Open the Actions panel.
Click the Create new set button to create a new set to contain your action(s), give it a name and click OK.
Click the Create new action button to create a new action, give it a name and click Record. Now Photoshop records everything you do. There are lots of ...
Have a few separate complete pieces of proper plants or leafs as images with transparent background. Have several copies in different sizes and rotation angles (see NOTE1). Place them until you have enough, do not clip a maze, because the edges would be wrong.
You may need also pieces which are squeezed vertically or horizontally to simulate watching ...
This can be done - Click on your path and then click on the shape tool This will bring up the tool bar options.
Click on the "shape" button in the menu which will create a shape layer of your path. Then drag your image layer and new shape layer to the new .psd doc and resize and move it as requested.
Once your image is in place on the new .psd doc - go to ...
It might be that your layer is a smart object
try to right-click on your layer and click rasterize layer
after then you could cut the photo.
be careful to duplicate your smart object layer because once you rasterize it
it won't be a smart object again so be aware to have a copy of the original once.
