Advanced Glow Effects In this tutorial, we're going to create some really sharp-looking glow effects using a combination of layer styles, the Pen Tool and Color Blending. The end effect is quite stunning and hopefully you'll pick up some tips you didn't know before. As with pretty much every tutorial I've ever written, we begin with a radial gradient. This one is pretty harsh and goes from a reddish brown color to black. Foreground color - #922f00 Background color - #000000 In this tutorial, we actually need a pretty intense center, so what we'll do is duplicate the layer we just made and set the one above to a blending mode of Color Dodge. Now in our glow effect, it helps to have a nice textured background. Then go to Filter > Render > Clouds. Now set the opacity of your layer to Overlay and 30% transparency. So go to Filter > Sketch > Chrome and use default settings of 4 and 7 for detail and smoothness respectively. Now before we can start making glows, we need to have something to glow.

Waldseemuller World Map Photoshop Brushes Arbenting > Freebies > Brushes > Waldseemuller World Map Photoshop Brushes In 1507 Martin Waldeemuller, a German cartographer, carved an intricately detailed, and ornamental rendering of the world as it was then known. In 2011 Rob Bowen, a graphic designer, set out to create a dual set of freebies using Waldseemuller’s world map, a set of vectors and a set of Photoshop brushes. After many failed attempts to be able to combine these large vectors into a single manageable file, Rob gave up on the complete vector set, and instead turned the large pieces over to his partner in crime (and life) so the Photoshop brushes could be made from the enormous vectors. Just like the map was divided into twelve pieces, so is the brush pack, creating one brush from each of the richly detailed illustrated map sections. These 12 all new Photoshop brushes are now ready for you to download and start using today! For more about the Waldseemuller Map visit the Wiki via that link. Detail Previews Specs Get More

What bleeds are and what bleeds do in the printing process Home — TheInternetPrinter > Surplus > Bleeds — what bleeds are and what bleeds do Consider the following situation: A customer wants to have a business card printed, and that customer wants a background colour to print right to the very edge of the business card. The customer creates a file that is the correct size for a business card (i.e.: 54mm x 89mm), and the background colour finishes at the edge of the file. TheInternetPrinter prints the business cards on white stock. Well, given the file had the background colour finishing at the edge of the file, then the business card would have a white strip down one side. The below image shows this the white strip: You can see the green and gold background colours, and you can see where they start and finish — there is a very faint black line where the colours actually finish. So, we have a problem, but the real issue is how to solve it. Look at the next image. How to prepare files for printing
