    Looks like Target hasn’t sprung for any decent graphic designers since that last thigh gap debacle.   For those of you keeping score at home, this is par for the course over at Target.com.  Previously we’ve outed them for this one, this one,  this one, and let’s not forget this little beauty, and that’s just off the top of my head.  What do they have against women’s bodies, anyway?

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

    Lesa Snider
    7 Oct 2014 | 12:36 pm
    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). Double-click the duplicated layer’s name…

  • Safe Healing and Cloning in Photoshop CC

    Lesa Snider
    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.

    Hey everyone! I’m just getting back from my Lightroom seminar in Colorado Springs yesterday. So first off, a big thanks to everyone that came out. I’m continually fortunate to have awesome crowds at every city, and yesterday was no exception. Really engaged, and just a really great group of people.

    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…

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.

    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:…

    Joumana Medlej

    What You'll Be CreatingAs a comic artist, one of the comments I get the most is: "I don't know how you're able to draw the same character over and over again so that they're recognizable!" Even artists who are reasonably fluent in drawing humans can still find this challenging, which is why I put together this final lesson. This is the next stage in learning to draw people: being able to draw a person repeatedly, and from different angles, without losing their likeness. It's not an essential skill for all illustrators, but anyone making a story book, or a comic book, or any such project…

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.

    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…

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…

    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…

    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).

    Jake Rocheleau
    20 Oct 2014 | 3:27 am
    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,…

Keep in mind that a website using too many icons will get confusing real fast. You generally need some context to help readers understand what they’re looking at.

If you’re using CS4 or earlier, Camera Raw has Clarity but it’s using the older math, and while it’s still good, it’s not great. If you have the older version, what you’ll find is that a lot of Clarity will create a black halo around the edges of…

Even artists who are reasonably fluent in drawing humans can still find this challenging, which is why I put together this final lesson. This is the next stage in learning to draw people: being able to draw a person repeatedly, and from different angles, without losing their likeness.

    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…
