Xposedbydesign's insight:

 I hope you are not like me, because my color schemes suck. However I found this site that lets me use the colors I find attractive from the web.

 

Easily grab the colors used from any Website, even weighting the different colors to show how prevalent they are.

 

It gives not just the hex codes for each color, but also gives you charts to show hue distribution and even where the hues appear on the color wheel, and sites with similar color schemes.

Grab the right-center control point and drag to the left. Look up in the Options Bar--it shows the percentage you're slimming your subject.

This is an excellent tip and have used it in the past.

35 Fresh Photoshop Actions to Download | | xposing world of Photography & Design | Scoop.it
Photoshop actions can be invaluable tools for designers and photographers. Quality actions will allow you to create photo effects in seconds with a simple click on the mouse.
Xposedbydesign's insight:

Not a big fan of Actions for creative effects. I prefer to make mine the old fashion way.

 

However Actions are great for stuff like resizing a bunch of photos to a specific size or converting all of them to Black and White instead of doing each one individually.

 

I haven't tried any of these so I can't vouch for them. Enjoy

Hayleigh Simon's curator insight, May 8, 2013 2:35 PM

This article gives very good advice and tips on taking silhouette photos. A silhouette photo can be very unique if you do it right. Their are ways you can capture certain light that you need but their are also ways you can keep from capturing certain light. This article explains ways you can get the silhouette picture you want with simple easy steps.  

Hayleigh Simon's comment, May 8, 2013 2:38 PM
This article was very educational because it taught me ways that I can create amazing pictures within seconds. It was very informational and gave good examples. It showed you examples of silhouette pictures so you can understand exactly what they are talking about.
