Photoshop CC 2014 Missing Manual – Review

This manual is a massive 956 pages long and weighs in a 1.5kg, not a book you'll want to sit and read holding up, but its ok as a reference on your desk or for Missing Manualdropping onto the desk during an argument. The problem with books this size is keeping the beggers open at the right page while you reference it and work along. My non scientific tests reveal it'll sit open of its own accord from page 185 until page 770, then it just wants to keep closing itself and requires an object on its edge. There is a Kindle version, and I've had a previous version in electronic form and this works well and if you're used to this format. For me, it was OK, but having the book to thumb through and randomly read something that catches my eye is still the way forward. [More]

Content Aware Fill in Photoshop Mix

It's not that long ago that such technology was wowing us with this feature in Photoshop and users were wondering if their desktop computer could handle the calculations needed, and here we are carrying it around in our hands! In this video I import an image of my grandson Harvey, taken with a DSLR, and process it completely using mobile apps, Lightroom Mobile and Photoshop Mix. [More]

Edit Multiple Photos in Lightroom

Often, when we’re working in Lightroom, we have groups of similar images that need similar adjustments. We can step through the images, making the same adjustments over and over. We can also use presets to make this faster. But for applying the same adjustments to a series of images, we can edit multiple photos in Lightroom directly from within the Develop module, quickly and easily. [More]

Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw : Tone Curve

In this video I use the Tone Curve feature of Adobe Camera RAW (Photoshop) and Lightroom to add some punch to a dull abstract image. It may not be to everyone's taste, but know that you can use the techniques here in varying degrees. [More]

Debit Card Photoshop File Download

I was asked for a quick debit card Photoshop file this week, I popped the one you see here together and thought I'd share it with our readers today. Disclaimer: This file can be downloaded and used as you wish (a note to say you have would be nice though). FONTS: Some fonts used here may not be available on your system. Some are available for free while others you may need an alternative. [More]

Photoshop CC 2014 Typekit Integration

Back in April, Adobe announced that they were making the Typekit font product available to all users of the Creative Suite, at all subscriptions levels. This is a fantastic benefit for users of Photoshop within the Creative Cloud environment, and at that time, I put together a short how-to guide for using Typekit with your Creative Cloud subscription. Fast forward, and now Photoshop CC 2014 includes some very nice integration with Typekit. As a Creative Cloud member, you have access to a vast trove of excellent fonts for desktop use. In this tutorial, we’ll look at some of the new features for Photoshop CC 2014 Typekit integration – font management tools that make things a whole lot easier. [More]

Photoshop Mix Shake Reduction

AdobeCover released a few mobile apps of late, one of them being Photoshop Mix. In this video I take a look at one of the features, Shake Reduction. As one of the more powerful features of the full blown Photoshop CC 2014 I was intrigued at just how well this app would cope, the result, and the way it's done, amazing; [More]

Create A Template To Display Your Image As A Mounted Canvas In Photoshop Part 2

In my last tutorial we saw how to create a reusable template to display our artwork as though they were mounted on canvas in situ. The base image I used is a sofa against a wall, both in neutral colours. Whilst this works well most for most images, what if we want to see how the picture would fit a particular location: a client's office or a married couple's lounge, perhaps? In this article I’m going to take the template idea further to enable us to alter the colour of both the sofa and wall colour, giving us far more freedom to match the artwork to specific decor. As before, this will be completely non-destructive as we'll be using adjustment layers and masks to create the effect. We can continue where we left off the last time. If you didn’t see the article, you can access it here, or you can just work with the base image – link below – and add in the artwork later. [More]

Lightroom and Photoshop – Creating Panoramas

Once you have the images imported into Lightroom, you can send them directly into Photoshop from Lightroom with a click of a menu; it’s easy. And the advantage here is that once you save from Photoshop, your newly created panoramic image is imported automatically back into Lightroom’s catalog. Lightroom and Photoshop cooperate well together in many ways! [More]

Tonality by Macphun – A Review

The world of black & white conversion apps is a competitive one these days with the some stiff competition from Nik’s SilverEfex Pro 2, OnOne’s Perfect Black & White and Topaz’s B&W Effects. Having been a long time user of the first two of these apps (I’ve yet to try the latter) I know it would be a brave/mad man to pitch into this battlefield and hope to come out a winner with your first effort. But this is what Macphun have done and, boy, have they done it well! [More]

Add Depth To Photoshop Shapes

Photoshop ships with a number of shapes, but they can often seem a little 'flat'. In this video I add various shading, and text, to a banner to give it some depth. [More]

Lightroom and Photoshop – Lens Corrections

Lightroom and Photoshop can work together in powerful ways, and each seems to have strengths where the other has weaknesses. Lightroom has a powerful new feature called “Upright,” found in the Lens Corrections panel of the Develop Module. This feature was a welcome addition in version 5, and it makes very quick work of a variety of perspective problems. Sometimes, especially with very wide angle shots, Upright doesn’t quite do the job, and we need to bring out the big guns. [More]
