    When we first started drawing, there was no intention to it. There was a tool, and there was an effect of using it, but it didn't matter—the process itself was fun! Then, either you were told your pictures were beautiful and felt great because of it, or you heard someone else being told it—and felt jealous. Another value has been added to this process—the value of a finished picture.But how is this value defined? In the modern world we often hear about some weird abstract painting being sold for millions of dollars. How can it be worth that much, when nobody wants to buy your…
  • Quick Tip: Perfect Your Designs With the Measure Tool in Adobe InDesign

    Grace Fussell
    21 Nov 2014 | 8:06 am
    What You'll Be CreatingThe Measure Tool is an often overlooked Adobe InDesign feature, which can be really useful for documents where you need to keep a close eye on dimensions. It can save you from making measurement errors that often show up, disastrously, only after you’ve sent something to print (or even worse, once the item has already been printed!).The tool is particularly useful if you’re creating a single-page document which will need to be divided into sections, such as a book cover or a folding brochure, as it gives you more control over measurements on the page and…

But Photoshop isn't just a makeup box for glamorizing photos; it's also an art studio with built-in brushes and paint. Cher Threinen-Pendarvis, author of The Photoshop and Painter Artist Tablet Book: Creative Techniques in Digital Painting Using Wacom and the iPad, Second Edition, shows how to harness the power of Photoshop to create a finished 'canvas' that delights the eye, without getting a single splotch of paint on your apron.

We have a family photo that is very outdated – everyone is dressed in their ridiculous “portrait” outfits. I am so young that I am sitting on my mother’s lap. Everyone around me is smiling their toothy grin except me – I have my hand raised in a fist and I am growling at the camera. And guess what?

    When I shot the Village Halloween Parade this year with the new Canon 7D Mark II, I knew there would be an issue with Lightroom. Even though the Canon Raw CR2 format has been virtually unchanged over the past few camera releases, Adobe insists not to fudge it and process the files based on the old “interpretation”. Until now, the choice was to save photos in-camera as both  RAW & JPG or use Canon’s DPP to process the RAW files. But, no more … Adobe finally updated Lightroom 5.7 to support Canon 7D Mark II Raw files!  This new update also supports the new Canon…

There's a fellow in the village we live in who always has his prints up for sale in any "art space" available.  I have to say they are some very nice images except for the fact that his shadow detail is nonexistent.  In each print, there's nothing in…

    Click on image to enlargeToday's image is actually pretty straight, once it got out of the camera.  It's a five image multiple exposure - in camera.  The Nikon D 300 it was shot with has the capability of going up to ten exposures without advancing the sensor (kind of like not advancing the film in "the old days").  Some of the cameras around today can do a max of three exposures.  Typically, the higher end you go the more exposures you can capture.  One of the big things to remember if you're going to try something like this would be to set the Auto Gain setting in…

    Dodging and Burning are some of the oldest and most fundamental techniques in the history photo retouching. The term dates back to the dark room where photographers over expose some areas while under exposing other areas in the photo to achieve an overall better exposure (more detail in the blown out / underexposed areas, increase contrast etc). Since the early days of digital post processing Photoshop made these tools available to us without having to leave our computer. The problem with these tools however is that by their nature they destructive i.e. using these tools changes the source…

    Dodging and Burning are some of the oldest and most fundamental techniques in the history photo retouching. The term dates back to the dark room where photographers over expose some areas while under exposing other areas in the photo to achieve an overall better exposure (more detail in the blown out / underexposed areas, increase contrast etc). Since the early days of digital post processing Photoshop made these tools available to us without having to leave our computer. The problem with these tools however is that by their nature they destructive i.e. using these tools changes the source…

    Advertise here with BSAAmong many powerful tools in Photoshop is the king of kings: the pen tool. This tool is shrouded by personal anecdotes of confusion and frustration. Although creating paths with the pen tool is difficult at first, the process becomes easier with practice and is well worth the effort. Every path is vector-based which means you can scale it larger or smaller without any quality loss. But paths can be very frustrating if you don’t know how to use them. I’d like to cover the process of converting a path into a shape layer. In case you didn’t already know,…

Another value has been added to this process—the value of a finished picture.But how is this value defined?
