A Kinder, Gentler HDR in Photoshop CS6

February 12, 2013

HDR doesn't have to be gritty, edgy, with radioactive colors. At its heart, HDR is a technique that can allow you to more accurately capture the images you see - as long as you aren't too heavy-handed with the controls. [More]

Creating a Chiseled Text Effect in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements

February 11, 2013

We'll be using Photoshop layer styles to achieve the effect as well as the somewhat obscure Type Mask tool. If you're not familiar with this tool, it's a little like a cross between the Type tool and Quick Mask; we can type our text as usual but when it's committed, instead of creating a layer with the text it creates a selection; this is perfect for the technique as we do not need to work on the text directly. You can follow the original tutorial using the link above but change the dimensions to 1000x200 pixels to create the correct document size. If you don't want to start the image from scratch, it can be downloaded here. [More]

Conditional Actions in Photoshop

January 30, 2013

The latest update to Photoshop (only available to Creative Cloud users, don’t blame me talk to Adobe, but I probably agree with you) included something called Conditional Actions. Conditional Actions are a way of adding a clause to an action that will cause another action to run if the clause is applicable or another to run if it isn’t. Clear? No, probably not, so I’ll create a real world example to explain more clearly (hopefully). [More]

The 3D Ground Plane in Photoshop CS6 Extended

December 18, 2012

When the 3D Ground Plane first made its appearance in Photoshop CS5 Extended, it was slightly useful, a little bit tricky, and very much hidden from view. With CS6, Adobe brings us a more useful design element - one that catches shadows, and casts reflections - and all in real time while you edit. This makes it an interactive tool that is both easy to use and effective in bringing added realism to your composites. [More]

Adjustable Patterns in Photoshop

November 13, 2012

Filling an area with patterns in Photoshop is a one-way street, and you're at the mercy of the pattern designer as to the scale of the results you'll get. Ordinary pattern fills are not scalable, in fact, there is no control or setting at all for a pattern fill. Use the Pattern Overlay layer style for a more customizable pattern fill. [More]
