Did you see...

Manic Monday (ooo-wee-ooo.. I wish it was Sunday)

I thought I would use Monday to give my pick of what has come to my attention over the weekend. 

My Quest

I have been trying to find someone, anyone, that has used the content aware scaling in a real world situation. Only one so far, for resizing a photo to a standard print size. Is that the only use for this enhancement? Drop me a note if you have found  another use, and used it!

Things to Do

PlanetPhotoshop, the home of Corey Barker, have a  forum that runs a Friendly Tutorial Challenge starting on Sundays. This week is making a textured photo frame. Really nice use of an alpha channel. 

Speaking of Mr Barker, a video of his was posted at Layers Magazine.com3D Reflections on Video

AdobeTutorialz posted a great tutorial called The Amazing Spiderman. Not the most useful of tutorials for the final image, but the techniques used are very well explained and worth a look through.
