Photoshopping

Post by photostat on Mon Dec 10, 2007 11:10 am

To all those who actually think messing around with Photoshop is a hobby...
You've been Photoshopping so long that you think 'hard' and 'soft' refers to brushes.
You know that 'Unsharp Mask' does not do what it says on the tin.

Whether you use Photoshop for editing photos or for graphics design, you belong here.

Please post any Photoshop tips and tricks here.

I'll start with mine...a simple one.

To make a photo look MUCH sunnier and a bit more cheerful, add in a Lens Flare - find this under Filters.

I'm using Photoshop CS3 Extended(Lite) now.
It's pretty useful to use.
Anyway, to ease the financial problems of certain people.. A company came out with a software call "GIMP 2.0" by downloading this, who'll definitely need to download GTK files. Anyway, it has the same feature exactly like Photoshop.

I like the Diamond effects conveyed by Photoshop CS3 Extended. It's basically the diamond you see on the front page of most hip-hoop artists album.
No one would ever thought of how it was made in Photoshop CS3 Extended.
In fact, I, myself was shocked to know that the way to make it was like that .......

Here I include you a video I found on youtube on the tips of making a bling out of diamond.

To all those who actually think messing around with Photoshop is a hobby...(nope, its not a hobby, its my job now)
You've been Photoshopping so long(long as in 4yrs??) that you think 'hard' and 'soft' refers to brushes.
You know that 'Unsharp Mask' does not do what it says on the tin.(I dun really use unsharp mask....but yea u got a point there...sort of)
Whether you use Photoshop for editing photos or for graphics design, you belong here.(editing photos...yup, graphics design....definitely yes! I'm in..but dun think there's much we can share here...)


I'll start with mine...a simple one, i hope...

Master the pen tool.

Ars longa, vita brevis est

Photoshop can make it happen...lols.

I learned Photoshop through playing with it, and a little help from Photoshop For Dummies...

When it comes to photoshop, think of it as a surface of a table(blank canvas),with papers(layers and background) tht will always stick on the table(not floating in the mid air..always to the table),and ur papers(layers) can move to the right-left, or up-down(thts y in photoshop, its a 2D environment, not 3D, so its very simple and not complex at all).In photoshop, it works by layers...well most of the time depends on wht kind of tasks.When u work with photoshop, u'll usually start with a blank paper(background),or maybe a transparent paper(depends on ur settings).*note, papers mean layers here* So, as u work with it, u'll begin to add more n more layers to it,or papers....So wht u'll have next is a stack of papers(layers).There are alot of things which u can do wif the layers, u can arrange them(imagine urself havng 3 colour papers with the exact same size each on ur table, red, green and blue.So, lets say u arrange them so tht u'll have the blue paper on top of the other 2 papers, (the green and the red)and the bottom-most layer, lets say red...Ok,now from the top view of ur table, i'm sure u know wht u'll see...u'll only see the blue paper.And lets say u take away the blue paper(in photoshop,u can do this by deleting the blue layer,or make it invisible,or u can change the layer's opacity and fill to 0%.....either ways will work..) Taking away the blue paper will leave u with the green paper on the top most and visible layer.....ok....enuf crap...lols!!! I do not wish to continue explaining this coz its wasting my time... Ok, i'll cut the crap short..look at ur layer window, the top most layer will cover other layers below,and each time u add a new layer (ctrl+shift+N) it'll always b on top of others,and its up to u to arrange them later. After u have a complete picture of how layering works in photoshop, its time to go the individual layer....I'm not a writer, so i do not wish to continue this crap...for more info just buy the DAMN PHOTOSHOP BOOK which is probably as thick as my ANATOMY ATLAS...or u can download the pdf....or if u hate reading...http://www.good-tutorials.com/ will b ur photoshop heaven...
Photoshop is not about how well u understand how the things work,as u work with it long enuf u'll find out tht it is more about the creativity of the individual person..how well one can put things together to make them look nice....its a never ending chemistry of art...but of course not without the the basic knowledge and skills....coz tht will be like asking leonardo DaVinci to pain The Last Supper or "Amon Lisa"(direct translation= Monalisa) using photoshop... Ok, last but not least...quote the peeps in this forum...PLAY AROUND WITH IT...use to play around wif photoshop for fun and kill time...but turned up as my everyday job.....for church thingy...yea i know ppl play music for their church...but i do designs...and all tht,to sharpen the skills b4 it gets rusty..

By: Lens On Lane or L.O.L or.......(tips...Lens On Lane is an anagram....Another very simple one...)
