Pick Color combinations like the Pros 4 your designs. | xposing world of Photography & Design | Scoop.it
Xposedbydesign's insight:

 

I'm not very creative or artistic and have a hard time picking attractive color combinations when I'm designing ads or compositions.

 

Thanks to Tineye all I have to do is find a image with colors I like and this site will map it and give me all the Hex codes it contains.

 

The photo above is one of mine and you can see it will create a Map  and display the codes next to it.

 

There is another great feature called Multicolor Engine where you choose a color and it will search 10 million Creative Commons images from Flicker.

 

Tin Eye solved my lack of Color skills now if it only could pick the winning Lottery numbers for me.

 

I photographed the Model at her apartment complex in Las Vegas,Nevada.

More About TinEye

TinEye is a reverse image search engine. You give an image to TinEye to find out where it came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or to find higher resolution versions.

Dam Type layers won't let you add Filters 2 them or will they? | xposing world of Photography & Design | Scoop.it

If you have been using Photoshop for awhile you know you can't apply filters to a Type layer unless you Rasterize it first. Then you better be sure you have your text correct because you won't be able to edit it any longer.

 

However if you convert it to a Smart Object first both problems will be solved.

How to Create Custom Smoke Brushes in Adobe Photoshop

How to Create Custom Smoke Brushes in Adobe Photoshop | xposing world of Photography & Design | Scoop.it
Smoke trails are elegant, beautiful, and amazing to watch. Thin wisps of smoke dancing through the air reveal just how fluid our atmosphere really is. The effect is deceptively simple, and the dynamics of it are dizzyingly complex. Recreating believable smoke in a digital environment is no easy task. However, capturing the practical effect is a much easier prospect. In this quick tip, I'll share a technique that I use to create stunningly beautiful custom smoke brushes in Photoshop. | Difficulty

Establish a Memory Card system & stay organized.

Establish a Memory Card system & stay organized. | xposing world of Photography & Design | Scoop.it
Xposedbydesign's insight:

Lets be social: @xposedbydesign on Twitter

 

I'm a firm believer in staying organized, if you establish good habits from the beginning it will save you loads of time later and a lot less stress in your life.

 

This is a simple tip for your MEMORY CARDS:

 

I ALWAYS carry at least 4 memory cards in a protective case when I'm on a photo shoot. When they become full, I put them face down into the case so the ones that are used have the backside facing up and the empty cards have the fronts facing me. 

IF I stick to this method I never have to worry about grabbing one that has already been used.

 

YOU SHOULD also rotate your cards so the same cards are not always being used.

I PROBABLY have 15 cards in total and keep them in a plastic case in my camera cabinet. When I return from a shoot, I download the cards to my computer and put the cards in the back of the line and grab fresh cards to put in my camera bag. 

 

THIS WAY I always have 4 cards ready to go in my camera bag (face front) and because I put these cards in the back of the line they serve as a temporary back-up in case something goes wrong.

 

IF YOU have a system that helps you stay organized please share it.
