Hello everyone! Today I’m going to show you that it’s okay to destroy pixels. Sometimes making a composite image doesn’t require fancy layer masks or clipping paths, a good ole Eraser tool will do just fine. Have a look.
Time for another Tip Tuesday! It’s all about image sharpening, and the improvements made to Lightroom 3 & Adobe Camera RAW 6. Check it out:
UPDATE 08/12/2010 – I’ve been getting some questions about sharpening in Lightroom vs sharpening in Photoshop. There is an excellent article over at Brett Edge Photography where Nat Coalson details the differences between “capture sharpening” & “output sharpening”.
It’s Tip Tuesday, and today I’m answering Firgs request to demonstrate why RAW is better than JPEG when it comes to adjusting White Balance. This video continues the thread started in yesterday’s post on using RAW vs JPEG. In the video I demonstrate white balance adjustments in both Lightroom AND Adobe Camera RAW. Check it out:
It’s Tip Tuesday, and I thought I would extend the conversations started yesterday about my last YoutTube video preventing unauthorized printing of your Facebook photos. Lots of people weighed-in on comments, Twitter & Facebook, with suggestions ranging from “Don’t post your photos online” to “That’s why I watermark my images.” You should checkout the article written by Terry White on how you can further protect Facebook content by using Lists. Today’s video tip demonstrates how to make a quick watermark on an image using Layer Styles while adjusting Layer Fill.
Be sure to watch for the #TipTues hashtag on Twitter, and join me again for next week’s video.
Yesterday, Janine Smith posted a Photoshop tutorial over on TipSquirrel entitled Cubism. If you don’t know Janine, she’s an award-winning photo restoration artist, and MUCH MORE creative than myself. Before you watch my video, be sure to read her tutorial. (That’s where you’ll find the PSD file Janine created that I use in the video) It’s a great idea, and I wish I had thought of it. Being the Photoshop technician that I am, I quickly broke down the steps to come up with Cubism 2.0. That’s the great thing about Photoshop–talk to 100 different experts you’ll get 100 different methods to accomplish the same task. Thanks to Janine for being this morning’s Photoshop inspiration. Enjoy!
