National Geographic is currently holding its annual photo contest , with the deadline for submissions coming up on November 30. For the past nine weeks, the society has been gathering and presenting galleries of submissions, encouraging readers to vote for them as well. National Geographic was kind enough to let me choose among its entries from 2011 for display here on In Focus. Gathered below are 45 images from the three categories of People, Places, and Nature, with captions written by the individual photographers. [ 45 photos ]
The tutorial posts where I go through the process of creating a complete WordPress theme from Photoshop concept right through to coding the template files always go down well, so let’s start with another tutorial series based on my latest WordPress theme design. Follow this tutorial where we’ll lay out a typography based blog design over a strict underlying grid, then stay tuned for the next tutorials where we’ll build the concept into a HTML5 prototype then finish it off as a fully working WordPress theme. The WordPress theme we’ll be creating this time is called Typo. It’s a design that’s entirely based on typography to allow the content to shine. To allow the design to work without the use of any graphical interface elements it will be based on a strict grid to balance the design and tie everything together.

Lists have been around for a long while and are a hot topic today. I’ve even compiled some myself for my Photoshop Roadmap blog . They are perfect candidates for massive and steady traffic, and they are an interesting, if not fun, reading.
Finding Photoshop brushes on the internet isnâ€™t hard; there are loads and loads available. Finding ones that are good quality and suited to your needs is rather more difficult. Fear not! Weâ€™ve done the hard work for you by trawling through literally hundreds and hundreds of examples, to find the best brushes available today.
A couple of months ago, we took a look at 28 Powerful Photoshop Lighting Effects . This time I want to show you some of the most incredible Photoshop brushes I’ve found that can be used to create similar stuff. If you have a project coming up that requires some type of lighting effect, you will definitely find these to be very useful. Sui Generis 3 Fractal Brush
My recent tutorial about creating pattern backgrounds sparked some questions from readers if I could do the same for something that is referred to as “grunge”. The pattern tool is ok for repeating items but the grunge look gets it effectiveness just from the randomness I think. So I think it would be better if I show you how to make a grunge brush instead. I know several of those are available for download but there is nothing more rewarding then creating your own :)
In 1990, I had the great pleasure of introducing Russell Brown and a new software package from Adobe to several hundred attendees of my Great Graphics Tips session at Macworld. Photoshop Tips & Tricks has been part of DT&G ever since. High dynamic range, HDR WOW
Photoshop a vingt ans. Peut-être plus que les appareils photonumériques, c’est ce logiciel qui a incarné la rupture majeure engagée par la révolution de l’image digitale. Pour la première fois, la photographie perdait visiblement son statut de garant de l’authenticité de la représentation.
This Photoshop tutorial will show you how to beautify a face. The corrections that we're going to do will make the face look different, but at the same time we avoid to make the results look unnatural like we tend to see in other Photoshop tutorials. Of course, the face we're going to work on is not going to look the same when we're done, but we will only make necessary and subtle changes.
Photo manipulation is one of the most creative art forms to come out of the digital age. Here we showcase ten masters of this technique and 48 examples of their stunning artwork, blending real photos with synthetic elements for a surreal result.

I’ve often been asked about my process for tweaking photos. I thought I’d use one of my favorite photos and show how I took it from initial capture to final public display. I had forgotten how far I had taken this image from its initial capture: click image to see larger version As with all tools, there are many ways to accomplish the same thing.
Open the image or photograph, then duplicate a layer and turn it off so you have a safe copy. Next we need to remove the colour from the image. In the photoshop menu at the top of the screen go to 'Image > Adjust > Desaturate' or (shift + Ctrl + U) on the keyboard. This will remove all the colour information from the selected layer. You should now have a greyscale image. Next we need to colourize the desaturated layer and add some colour to it.
The following photoshop tutorial was submitted by one of our Forum members – Floris who took an image that another of our forum members submitted and did some photoshopping on it (with permission of the other member). I hope you find it a useful tutorial. We’ve all experienced it, maybe only once, maybe 10 or even 100 times: Looking at a photograph you took, and think: “pity, wish I could change the colors a bit, or frame it a bit to the right.” Sometime you can go back an try another shot, but thats not always possible.
