How To Create A Rippling Flag Using The Displace Filter In Adobe Photoshop

January 6, 2016

In this tutorial we'll be creating the effect of a rippling flag using custom artwork and one of Photoshop's oldest distortion filters, Displace. The filter uses a monochrome image map to distort the pixels of the target layer based on the tones of the map. The brighter or darker the tone, the more the pixels of the image are pushed horizontally or vertically. This is great for creating the appearance of an object or text following the contours of a texture. [More]

In this tutorial we'll look at the advanced features of the plugin, where we can import a high-resolution layered Photoshop PSD file that replaces the low-resolution preview.

Tinting With the Photoshop Gradient Map Adjustment

November 9, 2015

There are many ways of tinting an image, and many of those ways I employ regularly, sometimes trying multiple methods on a Tint-Scary-Gradphotograph to get the best result because, as you regular users know and you newer to Photoshop will soon learn, every image is different and no one method will work – or work the same – 100% of the time, and different methods, of course make for different results. For the purposes of this article, however, I’m focusing on the Gradient Map adjustment layer for tinting, and using one custom gradient with the crazy hex value combination [More]

How To Create A Composite In Photoshop With The PixelSquid 3D Extension

November 4, 2015

The main focus of the tutorial is an amazing stock image site named PixelSquid. If you haven’t heard of it before, PixelSquid specialises in pre-rendered 3D stock image objects that can be rotated in real time, enabling you to pick the perfect angle before placing the image into your designs and photo-montages. When the site first launched, it was necessary to download the object at the required angle before adding into your composites, which still left a little guesswork as to whether it was going to fit the scene properly. A recent update has change this. [More]

Beauty in Decay – Repairing a Photo with Photoshop

August 29, 2015

It’s a funny thing about me; if I see a damaged picture, sometimes I just really, really want to fix it. It’s almost like my fingers start tingling for the Wacom pen so I can get started. It doesn’t happen every, single time, but when it does good things usually happen.
