    [from Adobe] When Adobe released the Project Parfait beta in April 2014, the team knew it had something wonderful on its hands. 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.

    This is a cool grid effect I did back in my first book, Photoshop Down & Dirty Tricks for Designers, and I thought it lent itself nicely to a wedding-themed design. With a few updated tricks for this technique, you can definitely have some fun with your wedding images. STEP ONE: Create a new document (File>New) that’s 9×12″ at 100 ppi. Make sure the Background Contents drop-down menu in the New dialog is set to White. STEP TWO: Go to Photoshop (PC: Edit)>Preferences>Guides, Grid & Slices.

    I wanted to create a type effect to go along with the pirate theme for Photoshop World 2014. While finding a swashbuckler-looking font was pretty easy, I also wanted the type to have a very textured, rusty appearance, as if it were a piece of iron or steel that had been exposed to the elements of the high seas for an extended period of time. STEP ONE: Create a new 17×12.75″, 300-ppi document. Click on the Foreground color swatch near the bottom of the Toolbox to open the Color Picker, choose gray as the color (R:52, G:57, B:65), and click OK. Press Option-Delete (PC: Alt-Backspace)…

    This is a short clip from an episode of “The Grid” (hosted by RC and me) that has gotten a ton of buzz, mostly because so many Photoshop users had no idea that Photoshop could even do this (I think it’s the best-kept secret in Photoshop).We start a five minute timer, and even with me messing up the first step and literally having to close and restart Photoshop and start over, we still comfortably got all seven steps completed in five minutes. You’ll be stunned at how easy this is, because we’re using a photography application that lets us create video, instead…

Sometimes those things are right inside Lightroom, but I have to say if there’s one non-Lightroom thing that I can’t live without for my photos, it’s my Wacom tablet. No joke.

We had videos and tutorials from lots of various Photoshop World instructors, and I jumped in to do a some quick Lightroom tips as well as a tutorial on replacing a not-so-great sky in landscape photos. Replacing the sky is one of those questions I hear about a lot. I’ll tell you up front, that in order for it to work, you need similar conditions. For example, if you take an image from a blah cloudy day, and try to replace it with a sky from a bright sunny or colorful sunset, then…

One of the big areas I hear a lot about is film effects. Lately it seems that film effects have taken over the post-processing world. Look at the popularity of the VSCO Film presets for Lightroom (and many others that do something similar). Just about every photo app on the iPhone does ‘em too. Now, I do think the overall community out there wants to do most of their work in Lightroom which is why presets are popular. But when it…

  • Time to change the gear setup

    admin
    4 Aug 2014 | 9:30 am
    Hi gang! It’s time for another update, and this time it’s a gear update! As you may know, I have been a Canon shooter for years and I’ve really enjoyed using Canon gear. However, I’ve been giving my setup a lot of thought, and have been doing a ton of research, and I finally came to the conclusion that it was time to make a switch. *Insert gasp sound effect here* The other day, I placed the order for my next camera… the Sony A7R! Why would I want this one over my current Canon 5D Mark III?… Here are the main things that compelled me to change to the A7R:…

    Hi all! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! Things have been pretty low key here over the past few weeks, but I wanted to give a mini update anyway. First of all, if you read this blog often, you know that I’ve been based in the greater Tampa area for a while. That might seem a little unusual considering the fact that my mobile lifestyle usually takes me to between 12 and 30 states a year, so I just wanted to recap my RV/motor coach situation. My wife and I generally live on the road full-time in a 40-foot motor coach, traveling around to photograph and explore. We are also…

    Pradip ChowdhuryA toned photo has its own attractions. Some use curves to give the effect. It can be done with it. But it is easier to do with Gradients since a large number is built into Photoshop. You can even create your Gradients. Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC have the added advantage of 'Photographic Toning. Advanced versions of Photoshop do have their advantage in saving time. Here I am not concerned with the edition of Photoshop, but how you can give the effect even in Photoshop7. It is always better to know how to give a certain effect irrespective of the inbuilt advantages of…

    Pradip ChowdhuryThe Shake Reduction under Sharpen in Photoshop is a new and excellent tool that usually removes the 'shake'. It does not work if the photo is out of focus. I have used the word usually, because the sharpening is a bit too intense at times. These can be corrected with other tools in photoshop. What could not be done so far was to remove camera shake, which resulted in photos having to be thrown away. Not any more with Shake Reduction.I took a photo of this cat today, but my hands must have shake. If you look at the cat's face you can make out the camera shake.This is the photo…

  • Understanding Auto, Optical and Metrics Kerning in Adobe Illustrator

    Julie Felton
    22 Aug 2014 | 4:46 am
    What is Kerning?Kerning is the process of adjusting the space between pairs of letters to give them a more pleasing visual flow. Typically, kerning is used in large text such as headlines or titles though it can be used in body text. As font size increases, gaps between letters become more obvious. These gaps are especially noticeable around letters with an outward angle such as V, W and Y. Gaps also occur around letters than have a horizontal bar that creates an open space such as L and T.Types of KerningAdobe Illustrator offers three types of kerning: Auto, Optical and Metrics-Roman Only.

To me, the best way to get better at photography is to practice.  Sometimes though, especially if you are photographing your own kids or things you love, it’s easy to have blinders on when analyzing your own work. I think back to when I first started in photography — I thought I rocked.  I had an SLR and a prime lens.  I could get background blur, and usually I even followed the rule of thirds.  So… the photos must be amazing. Well, they weren’t.  And looking back now, I wondered how people rarely told me that my photos needed…

We often get caught up in the poses, the props, the fabrics and all the other details and sometimes we forget about angles. It is amazing how moving our bodies and cameras ever so slightly can dramatically impact the look and feel of an image. A simple change in angles can turn a good image into a breath taking image. Here are a few tips on how to achieve the best angles when photographing newborns. 1. Always avoid shooting up the nose. It really isn’t flattering when the angle of the image…

Why did the Panel Flip?  Lightroom 5 stores the old settings along with the old Process from Lightroom 4.  Take a look at the Panel above – Recovery, Fill Light?? Remember those?

    Topaz Labs (TL) just came out with a new version of it's Remask plugin.  It's a free upgrade if you're already a Topaz Suite user and some minimal cost if you'd be interested in it as a stand alone.  (With the suite pricing I can't imagine why anyone would pick and choose individual pieces.)  I've really struggled with earlier versions of Remask, so I figured I'd download their newest and see what I thought.  Not bad, much improved from what I've played with from them before.  The caveat is that I can still do complex masks quicker using Adobe Photoshop (PS)…
  • Untouched By Photoshop

    21 Jul 2014 | 6:32 am
    Today's image is a little down stream from the site of the previous post.  It was taken on the way to the falls, not after the fall down the falls.  (See previous post.)  You can see that there is a definite uphill component to the stream.  As with all flowing water, there are drops and there are quiet spots.  You can see one of the "quiet spots" toward the top of the image.  Had I scrambled about fifteen yards upstream this would have been a shot of the pool, filled with reflections.  The power of the water would have been lost in the…

    Michael Corsentino
    20 Aug 2014 | 1:08 pm
    Compact, Lightweight Jib for Video Shooting professional-looking video footage requires not only a capable DSLR or camcorder, but also a few key accessories essential for high-quality production values. To capture the shots you’ve seen where a camera fluidly glides across the horizon or moves smoothly up or down in a scene, filmmakers use a tool called a jib, a crane-like piece of equipment that’s typically expensive, heavy, and complicated to set up. That is until the folks over at Nice Industries introduced The Aviator Travel Jib, a best-in-class, compact, lightweight, and affordable…
  • Editing JPEGs and TIFFs in Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw

    Scott Kelby
    19 Aug 2014 | 12:08 pm
    This really surprises a lot of people, but you can shoot in JPEG or TIFF modes on your camera and still use Camera Raw just like you would with any RAW photo. So I thought I’d show you how to do just that, because it’s not really obvious, and there are a couple of different ways to do it (and I think learning Camera Raw is the easiest and certainly fastest way to make your photos look the way you want them to look). We’ll then take a look at some of the minor differences between editing a JPEG or TIFF file versus a RAW file. FROM YOUR COMPUTER If you want to open a single JPEG or TIFF…

  • Four Ways to Create Contrast in Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw

    Scott Kelby
    14 Aug 2014 | 11:42 am
    When we do live photo critiques at my workshops and on The Grid (my weekly podcast about photography), one of the most common problems we see in photos is that they look flat (in other words, they need contrast—like the flat-looking image you see below). You can create contrast right in Camera Raw. There are four different ways to do it. Each way applies contrast slightly differently, so each has its own slightly different look. #1: THE CONTRAST SLIDER If you’ve been using Camera Raw for a while, you might find this surprising, but in the latest two versions, the Contrast slider…

  • Understanding Auto, Optical and Metrics Kerning in Adobe Illustrator

    Julie Felton
    22 Aug 2014 | 4:46 am
    What is Kerning?Kerning is the process of adjusting the space between pairs of letters to give them a more pleasing visual flow. Typically, kerning is used in large text such as headlines or titles though it can be used in body text. As font size increases, gaps between letters become more obvious. These gaps are especially noticeable around letters with an outward angle such as V, W and Y. Gaps also occur around letters than have a horizontal bar that creates an open space such as L and T.Types of KerningAdobe Illustrator offers three types of kerning: Auto, Optical and Metrics-Roman Only.

The interiors of the curves are filled with luminous fields of colour in blue, pink and purple hues. Around the outside of the frame, the colours blend into rich gold and green hues.Imagery can evoke powerful emotions and memories. Sometimes, as with this picture, the feelings are pleasant and harmonious … yet ethereal and undefined. The abstract forms presented here are reminiscent of beautiful things like…

    If you are just starting up as a web designer, it can be challenging to land your first customer. I will give you tips that will help you get started. 1) Tell everybody that you know about what you do. I remember when I started doing web design, when I meet people I tell them what I do and exchange business cards. You might that it doesn’t work but it does. Some people may go even 6 months without contacting you, but if they decide to have a website, you will be the very first person they will contact. Most people prefer working with people that they already know or have already met.

Go through your website and make sure your page title has your main keyword in it. I get clients who have basic HTML knowledge, but their page title is set to “home” or “untitled”. If you are selling cars, make sure your page title has the word “car” in it, or if you do SEO for small businesses make sure you have the word “seo…
