For selecting finely detailed images (trees with sky) the select color range tool is the first stop. Once you have that at its best, move to your toolbox and the selection tools available there. Refine edge works well for soft edged selections, hair, and more
uniformly shaped objects like the smoother edged trees.
When you are compositing an image onto another, it...
Time files when you are knee deep in Photoshop, so it’s a good practice to walk away from your monitor every 2 hours or so. Set a timer on your cell to remind you. Look out the window, stretch, take a deep breath, get a drink of water before you go back
to all those layers & masks.
So you keep hearing about Photoshop being this and that - the power application for decades ! ~yeah it's been the indusrty leader since the 1980's true, but what other options do you have for photo editing, printing ? Well it's kinda funny,
ADOBE makes both Photoshop and Lightroom. Both do things very differnetly and yet both can work seamlessly together.
What one lacks...
Here's an easy explanation.. Just remember when using the opacity to make sure it looks natural. And use your zoom to really tune in on the shading.
Working in the creative arts you have to grow with the industry and where ever it might take you. Technology is always advancing and you don't want to be left behind, so if you can learn the programs while they change you already will stay ahead of the
game. Just try to keep with it. Take a few hours a week to stay ahead, view tutorials and ask questions.
Pixel, Bitmap, Raster. These are common terms used in association with photo based imagery. Unlike vector based art (see my Blog on Adobe Illustrator), Photoshop is a raster (pixel/bitmap) based program that allows us make changes to an original image.
Photoshop offers a vast toolset to create some truly incredible imagery. Most Photoshop work is in taking an existing image and altering it...
Below are some helpful tips to consider before starting a new document in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign & Photoshop. Customizing a document’s preferences can be done anytime in Illustrator, InDesign, or Photoshop while a document is open. Changes made to
preferences while a documents is open will be exclusive to that document. However, if you open the preference window (Edit/Preferences or...
I'm an educator, photographer, family therapist, I enjoy helping others succeed. I look forward to tutoring and getting to know WyzAnt students.
In this sample tutorial, Mark uses some basic functions of Photoshop to build a movie poster from scratch. Skills used include selection tools, text effects, layer styles and layer organization.
Earlier this year I started tutoring Graphic Design, Drawing, and Painting on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I have a lovely student who is excelling in her work as an artist both in Drawing and Photoshop. After the end of the 3rd quarter, we will be going into
Painting with Acrylics, Gauche, and Oil Paints if there is time.
Because I am a full time student at UALR and only have one car to share...
The left brain is logical, organized, and generally believed to be the domain of science. When math is considered to be "science" along with biology and physics, therein lies a flaw. Though elementary math may seem to be part of the science world, advanced
math which I studied in college is better handled by the right brain. This is the brain of imagination, art, and emotion. My enjoyment...
Recently I've been finding that many of my students who purchase both Lightroom and Photoshop end up discovering that Lightroom is all they need. With a comfortable learning curve and easy to comprehend basics, Lightroom provides digital beginners (and advanced
photographers as well) the perfect opportunity for "developing" digital photos: exposure compensation, color correction,...
One of the most important things I try and teach students is the difference between white point and white balance. Most believe if you grab your eye dropper and hit the area you believe should be white and click the mouse you will have established your white
balance. What you have really done is establish a white point. While the colors might appear to be more "on target and corrected"...
The concept of image creation often takes many directions that lead the artist into individual choices. We often hear that because of this flexibility there are no rules to the process. We are told to forget all the rules of design and go with the flow of
our feelings and just create. But I wonder, how can you forget what you never knew? I think that one must learn the rules first in order...
I just answered a poll about how often I assign homework for my tutoring sessions and I think my answer is probably a bit different than say a math tutor.
I rarely assign projects outside of what we are working on in the traditional sense because, with Photoshop and Lightroom, the student can really get confused if they aren't exactly sure what they are doing and then can't get back to where...
Who is Amanda O.? Just another art teacher in Philadelphia? I am indeed an art teacher in the Philadelphia School District, but am so much more than that. While some students have the misconception that teachers just hatch from an egg as is, we know that's
not true. I have many parts to me, as I am sure you have to you. I am a world traveler, who loves exploring new places, but also loves home...

This is my first tutorial. It shows you how to use the transform tool. I would post a time lapse, but I already added music to it.
