Cropping in Photoshop CS6 and CC

September 6, 2013

The crop tool is a fundamental tool in Photoshop. I use it on almost all my photos and not just for cropping closer. Used correctly the crop tool can straighten horizons, add a dramatic angle and even make a border. So when Adobe redesigned the Crop Tool in Photoshop CS6 they radically changes how the tool works. Any change to the Crop Tool was going to be tricky for die hard Photoshop users and some features are more welcome then others. In this video I’ll run through the major features that I use day to day as well as some of the further changes made to Photoshop CC’s Crop Tool. I know a few Photoshop users wish that Adobe had left the Crop Tool alone so at the end of the video I’ll tell you how to turn back the clock and get as close to the classic cropping experience as possible.

Hand Painted Border Brushes For Photoshop

May 10, 2013

I’m a sucker for a border and Photoshop has a raft of ways in which you can create a border from scratch. The only downside with some Photoshop border effects is they can look digitally created and by that I mean they lack the subtle changes and randomness that only a handmade border provides. So here’s a solution. Paint your own borders and turn them into custom brushes. Since Photoshop CS6 brushes can be up to 5000 pixels long, twice the size of Photoshop CS5 and that opens up a lot more creative possibilities. [More]

Creating a Glittery Text Effect in Adobe Photoshop

April 11, 2013

Inspiration often comes from things we've seen as we go about out day-to-day business; posters, TV and printed ads, etc. I was in town the other day and noticed a poster in a bus shelter for a soft drink. The ad headline featured a fancy glittery text effect. I took a photo with my phone for reference and set about seeing what I could come up when I got back to the computer. I wanted to make sure it was easy to create and versatile enough to apply in different situations. [More]

Working with Smart Objects and transformations in Photoshop CS6

March 7, 2013

This month I thought I'd highlight a feature of Smart Objects in Photoshop and, to an extent, Photoshop Elements that often gets overlooked. Aside from the ability to scale and distort layers without loss of quality and change the contents simultaneously across multiple copies, another useful trait is that they remember the previous distortion settings; image warp in particular. This is incredibly useful for designers, as it makes it far easier to experiment with idea or creating photo montages, where objects need to be placed into a scene in perspective [More]
