Using a Gradient for Light effects.

Xposedbydesign's insight:

Courtesy of Planet Photoshop:

 

Gradients For Light Effects:


TO get a nice light effect, press D then X to set your Foreground color to white and your Background color to black.

 

GO to Layer>New Fill Layer>Gradient, set the Mode to Soft Light in the New Layer dialog, and click OK.

 

CLICK on the Gradient thumbnail in the Gradient Fill dialog, and choose Special Effects from the Gradient Editor's flyout menu.

 

I love the Soft Stripes preset to create a light effect. Don't forget to play around with the angle, opacity, color stops, color, etc.

Artificial lighting can make or break a great photo.  Diffused lighting yields the best results by providing an even distribution of light to your subject.

Did You know Photoshop can tell you if you have enough Ram?

Did You know Photoshop can tell you if you have enough Ram? | xposing world of Photography & Design | Scoop.it
Xposedbydesign's insight:

Courtesy of Planet Photoshop:

 

NOT sure if you have enough RAM? Just ask Photoshop. Believe it or not, it can tell you.

 

HERE's how: Open a document that’s indicative of the type of image you normally work on. Work on the image, doing typical stuff, for about 10 minutes. 

 

ALONG the bottom left-hand corner of your document window, just to the right of the current document magnification readout, is the status bar. 

By default, it’s set to display your document’s file size, but if you click-and-hold on the right-facing triangle to the right of it, a pop-up menu of options will appear. (YELLOW CIRCLE)

 

CHOOSE Show, then Efficiency. If the percentage shown is 100%, you’re gold, baby! (MAROON CIRCLE)

 

THAT means that Photoshop is running at peak efficiency, because 100% of the time your image manipulations are being handled in RAM.

 

IF the efficiency number shown is, say, 75%, this means that 25% of the time, Photoshop ran out of RAM and had to use free hard drive space to make up for it, which means Photoshop ran much slower 25% of the time. 

 

AN efficiency of 75% is pretty much as low as you want it to go. If it shows anything less than 75%, it’s time to buy more RAM. Pronto!

 

I photographed this model at her horse stable in Las Vegas, Nv.

She is also an actress and has performed in dinner theartres here in Vegas.

Using Smart Objects makes more sense than comm+opt+shift+E

Using Smart Objects makes more sense than comm+opt+shift+E | xposing world of Photography & Design | Scoop.it
Xposedbydesign's insight:

Courtesy of Planet Photoshop:

 

If you never used Stamp Visible before (merges all layers into one) this probably won't make much sense to you.

 

Here is an example of why you would use "comm+opt+sht+E" which is the formula for STAMP VISIBLE.

 

Imagine you are woking on the above photo, after adding a curves layer, maybe you added a blank layer to remove blemishes, then you added a couple of adjustment layers, then you applied a vignette on a blank layer, then you added your copyright and before you know it, you have 7 layers.

The final touch is to sharpen it, how do you do it with all these layers?

 

You apply the stamp visible command so you have all your layers into one and this is the layer that you sharpen, however the sharpening is only applied to this new layer and not the ones underneath it.

 

Smart Object Instead Of Stamp Visible: 
FOR years I've been telling people to press Command-Option-Shift-E (PC: Ctrl-Alt-Shift-E) to make a merged copy of all visible layers.

 

THE only problem with that method is it's a snapshot, so if you change the underlying layers, the merged version will not change.

 

INSTEAD, select all the layers and convert them to a smart object (Layer>Smart Objects>Convert to Smart Object).

 

NOW you can work on that layer, but still have live access to all the original layers just by double-clicking on the smart object.

 

I photographed this model at Lake Mead, Las Vegas a few years ago.

Add a hairline Stroke around your Image

Add a hairline Stroke around your Image | xposing world of Photography & Design | Scoop.it
Xposedbydesign's insight:

Courtesy of Planet Photoshop:

 

STROKE IT:
When preparing an image for display, as the final step add a 3-pixel black hairline around the perimeter to define the edge. Doing this is even more important if your image is sort of white at the edges and the website you are displaying it on is also white.

 

I applied a stroke to the image above using this method.


Select the entire image (Command-A [PC: Ctrl-A]). Then, go to Edit>Stroke and set the Width to 3 px, the color to black, and the Location to Inside.

 

This will work even on the Background Layer.

 

I shot this model in a Las Vegas park and applied a Nik software effect to it.

Darkening The Eyebrows


TO make your subject's eyebrows darker, add a Levels adjustment layer (Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Levels) and drag the center slider to the right to darken the overall midtones.

 

PRESS Command-I (PC: Ctrl-I) to hide that darkening behind a black layer mask.

 

PRESS D to set your Foreground color to white; choose a small, soft-edged Brush (B); and paint over the eyebrows.

 

IF the eyebrows are too intense, change the layer blend mode of this Levels adjustment layer to Luminosity for a more natural look.

Is this unethical, maybe illegal? Whats your opinion. | xposing world of Photography & Design | Scoop.it
Xposedbydesign's insight:

Whats your take on this?

 

I'm always fiddling around with new things in Photoshop and never have exactly the right photos for the technique so occasionally I'll buy a stock photo or try to find one in the Public domain that will work.

 

I bought the dancer photo from Depost Photos if I remember right and the background image was in the Public Domain.

 

The dancer was shot in a studio and I cut her out from the background.

The background was a regular color image which I applied a Painterly effect to it, cleaned up some things, added the dancer and her shadow to it.

 

My question concerns my name that I go by (XposedbyDesign) that I added.

 

Is this legal or even ethical. I look forward to your input.

 

Ps. I'm pretty sure I have the extended license for the dancer, please base

      you opinion on this license version.

IF you're tired of having to dig through all the "funky" brushes in the Brush Preset Picker to get to the ones that you want, then try this:

 

FIRST, open the Preset Manager (under the Edit menu), and organize and remove any unwanted or unused preset brushes.

 

THEN, click the Save Set button to create your own set of presets that only contain the brushes that you use over and over again.

 

IN the Brush Preset Picker's flyout menu, select Replace Brushes and choose your set of saved brushes.

Removing the RED in Skin Tones

Removing the RED in Skin Tones | xposing world of Photography & Design | Scoop.it
Xposedbydesign's insight:

Courtesy of Planet Photoshop:

 

Here's one way to tone down the Red's.

 

IF you’re working on an RGB image and you’ve done your basic color correction but the flesh tone in your image still seems too red (a common problem), here’s a tip to fix it fast.

 

FIRST, select the flesh tone areas in your image (using the Lasso tool, etc.).

 

ADD a slight feather by going under the Select menu and choosing Feather. Enter a 1-pixel feather for low-res images; 3-5 pixels for high-res images.

 

GO under the Image menu, under Adjustments, and choose Hue/Saturation. From the Edit pop-up menu, choose Reds. Now lower the Saturation slider until your skin tones look more natural and click OK.

 It's a much better idea to add a HUE/SATURATION adjustment layer because this comes with a built in Mask.

 

IF you try this tip you will soon discover it's not easy to accurately select all the skin areas, so you can take the easy way out and convert to Black & White like I did in the photo above which did have very red skin tones. If you scroll down a few posts you will see her in color.

Can't find your Cursor, this tip will find it fast. | xposing world of Photography & Design | Scoop.it
Xposedbydesign's insight:

Courtesy of Planet Photoshop:

 

PHOTOSHOP's cursors can be easy to lose onscreen, especially if you’re working on a big screen or with the crosshair cursor (meaning you have the Caps Lock key active).

 

WELL, the next time you’re working on an image, and you say to yourself, “Hey, where in the heck is my cursor?” (but you use a different word in place of “heck”), try this—just hold the Spacebar down for a moment.

 

THIS temporarily changes your cursor into the Hand tool, whose icon is larger, white, and easy to see. Once it appears, you’ll see right where your cursor is, and you can release the Spacebar.

 

I photographed this Russian model in a retail shopping district, Las Vegas,Nv.

IF you see a shiny highlight on your subject’s lips, and you want to make it look glossier, duplicate the Background layer then change your layer blend mode to Screen to brighten the entire image.

 

OPTION-click (PC: Alt-click) the Add Layer Mask icon to hide this brighter layer behind a black mask.

 

PRESS D to set your Foreground color to white; choose a small, soft-edged Brush (B); and paint over those white highlight areas on the lips and they’ll get even glossier.
