SpeedUp Photoshop performance on your machine Hello everyone, I thought I'd summarize in this document all the necessary information to reinforce the relationship Photoshop/Machine that I've learned from years of experience and specific updates like Optimizing Photoshop's Performance by Bryan O'Neil Hughes. Step by step we will see how to set all the settings speeding up performance, reducing rendering times and not least by implementing our workflow, I am sure that this information will be useful to most of you as well as have been for me. SettingsUseful Tips3D Performance We start, of course from the premise that the 64-bit version can use as much RAM as your computer will hold while PS 32-bit can only use between 1.7 and 3GB of RAM. You're still to have the option to compress it when the work is finished. Cache Levels on 4 by default can be left as it is while Cache Tile Size works fine at 1024k or 1028k if you have to work with large files. Best Regards Gaetano Giordano - ACP Italy

How To Create a Text Portrait Effect in Photoshop In today’s Photoshop tutorial we’re going to create a cool portrait effect using a long passage of text that bends and deforms around the contours of the face. Known as a Calligram, this effect is particularly powerful when used to present famous quotes or speeches by depicting the author/speaker with the actual words. Photoshop’s Displace filter is the key ingredient in this recipe which allows us to accurately wrap the text around the subject. In my example, I’m combing a stock photo with a transcript of the speech from the movie The American President (1995) to create a totally fictional presidential address, but this calligram effect would be a great style for a series of famous speeches from the real American presidents of the past. Begin with your chosen image in Photoshop. Add a Black and White Adjustment Layer and add more contrast to the image by darkening the Red channel. Select the image layer then add a Gaussian Blur from the Filter menu. Download this file
