    How much is your client worth to you? They may be worth more than you think. If I sent you 2 clients and told you one was worth $400, and the other was worth $4000, which would you take the best care of?   I hope you answered “both”.  I was actually referring to the same client in both scenarios. The first scenario was your client the first time they had a session with you, and the second is the same client years down the road. The $4000 reflects what your client is worth over a lifetime with you! When many people think of their client’s potential, they think of what they will be…

  • Removing Objects with Content-Aware Fill and Patch in Photoshop CC

    But what if you need to use another area of your photo for the fix instead of surrounding pixels? That’s where the Patch tool shines. In this column, you’ll learn how to use both options safely. STEP ONE: Open an image with a medium- to large-sized object to delete, like this light post. If you’re working with a single-layered document, duplicate it by pressing Command-J (PC: Ctrl-J). If you have multiple layers, activate the topmost layer and create a stamped copy of all visible layers by pressing Shift-Option-Command-E (PC: Shift-Alt-Ctrl-E).

    30 Sep 2014 | 8:15 am
    The Clone Stamp tool, on the other hand, copies one area of an image to another. Today, you’ll learn to use those tools safely to clean up a portrait. STEP ONE: The Spot Healing Brush tool (J) is great for repairing small- to medium-sized areas with surrounding pixels; those that Photoshop automatically picks. Open an image, create a new layer by pressing Shift-Command-N (PC: Shift-Ctrl-N), name it “spot healing brush,” and click OK. Position this layer above the layer you’re fixing. CREDIT: ISTOCK, LINDAYOLANDA, IMAGE #3496810 STEP TWO: Grab the Spot Healing Brush from the Toolbox.

    Photo by Melissa NiuI am passionate about photography. By that I mean, photography bugs the living crap out of me and nags at me when I don’t end up having the time to satisfy the craving that I have for it. It drives me crazy. It keeps me up at night. Frustrated. Photography frustrates to the point that I become helpless and want to lash out at the world for the inability to properly express what I envision in my mind, my heart, or my eyes.And I love it: this calming expression when you’re at peace with it. I love it so much that I strive to continually exercise the part of my lungs that…

Well, the starting points and ending points are correct, and several of the red routes are correct at times.

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    13 Oct 2014 | 7:52 am
    Last week I got the chance to teach some Lightroom classes at Adobe Max and I figured I’d give you a quick report on some new stuff that Adobe announced for Lightroom Mobile and the web. First off, a HUGE thanks to anyone that came out to Adobe Max last week in Los Angeles. The Max conference has a very creative/designer feel to it, and it’s a ton of fun. But it was great to see Lightroom making more of an impact. For example, my Lightroom for New Users class was packed. I think no matter what you do with Adobe products, chances are that you use a photo at some point. And…
  • Lightroom 5 Presets: Fall/Autumn Color Boost

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    7 Oct 2014 | 8:11 am
    It’s that time of year again. I taught a Lightroom seminar in Michigan last week, and as I drove around I saw people raking leaves (yuck!), and the trees starting to change color (cool!). So I figured it was time to release my Fall Color Presets again for Lightroom 5. TIP: If you’re looking for some Fall Photography tips, I posted some last week over on my personal landscape photography blog at www.mattk.com. These presets were created when I first started processing a lot of my fall photos years ago. As I processed my the photos I realized that I usually make the same tweaks to a…
  • TIP: Saving Prints and an Awesome Printing Deal for This Weekend

    Hey everyone and Happy Friday! My friends over at Mpix.com have an incredible 20% off (site wide) deal this weekend (see bottom of post for more details) and I thought I’d pass along a cool printing tip that goes along with Lightroom if you’re printing from a Photo Lab. See, the Print module in Lightroom is by far one of the easiest places to lay out a print. The layers, and masks, etc… that you’d need in Photoshop would take much longer than doing it in Lightroom. In Lightroom it’s basically drag-and-drop. But the question always pops up after people see this:…

But the tool—which enables front-end developers to effortlessly transform comps into code by dropping PSDs into a browser—was met with excitement that the team could never have predicted. (Really. Check out what people were saying on Twitter.) At that time, Project Parfait was a standalone web app. Fast-forward to today… We’ve named the tool Extract and a Preview version has been integrated into Creative Cloud Files.

    How much is your client worth to you? They may be worth more than you think. If I sent you 2 clients and told you one was worth $400, and the other was worth $4000, which would you take the best care of?   I hope you answered “both”.  I was actually referring to the same client in both scenarios. The first scenario was your client the first time they had a session with you, and the second is the same client years down the road. The $4000 reflects what your client is worth over a lifetime with you! When many people think of their client’s potential, they think of what they will be…

I get one portrait session with each of them separately at least once a year. And while I do “require” them to go out with…

    Grrr, the first time this happens to you, you’ll want to pull your own hair out.  Your Photoshop brush (or Elements brush) shows as cross-hairs instead of the outline of a circle.  The typical response is to visit the preferences area and see an area called cursors.

Don’t beat yourself up .  It’s one of the easiest fixes in editing — your CAP LOCKS KEY IS ON.  Turn it off and boom…you are back in business.  When I tell…

    In retouching you see this quite frequently, whether you’re using seamless paper, vinyl, a fabric hanging or a purpose built infinity cove, it’s going to get dirty. You have a couple of options, one is to check out some reviews on Amazon for handheld vacuum cleaners and have your assistant scoot around with it between shots. The other more sensible option, which we’ll cover here, is to solve it in post, in this case using Adobe Photoshop. It isn’t difficult of course to clone out the odd scuff mark, but when you have hundreds of dirt marks or creases you need a…

  • Lucky – My Bengal Dream Kitten with FIP

    Lucky was the sweetest kitten I ever had. Although he was a pure Bengal, he loved to be held and would sit in your lap for hours at a time. Unfortunately, he had FIP and died at 4-months. I only had him for 1-month of his life, but he touched my heart so deeply. He did not deserve this terrible disease. FIP or Feline Infectious Peritonitis is the disease that vets worry about. It is deadly and is not treatable. There are reports that many cats and kittens are exposed to the Coronavirus and may be carriers, but in some cases, it mutates into the deadly FIP. Lucky was from Xanadu Dream Bengals…

  • Healing Acne With Photoshop

    Janine Smith
    9 Oct 2014 | 7:11 am
    Unfortunately, acne’s a normal part of adolescence (and, more often than not, adulthood), one that can be quite embarrassing for the person sporting it. Sometimes, it’s just as painful looking back at photographs and seeing the cursed red spots. My son, Jason, had terrible acne when he was in junior high, until he went to a dermatologist to take care of it. To this day, he’s still embarrassed to see those old pictures. So, even amongst all the discussion out there over whether using Photoshop to manipulate a photograph is good or bad, or ethical or not, maybe it’s not such a bad thing…

  • Convert a Path to a Shape Layer in Photoshop

    Jake Rocheleau

    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,…
