An essential tip beforehand: Don’t content yourself with only looking at the embedded screenshots. Instead make sure to follow the links to enjoy the full-fledged original scenes in all their glory.
Photoshop CS6 Blur Gallery Tutorial One of my favorite features introduced in the Photoshop CS6 beta is without a doubt the Blur Gallery. This collection of three brand new filters allows for photo-realistic depth of field adjustments via an interface which allows you to place and manipulate controls directly on the image area. Photographers rely on focal length, subject distance and aperture to determine in-focus and blurred areas of an image. Yet there are times when technical constraints make a desired effect difficult to achieve. And that's where these new tools come in handy. Unlike the blur options in previous versions of Photoshop, the Blur Gallery filters are designed specifically to produce a selective focus effect.
Photomontage: A Collection - MAT 200A 2011 Pieces of a Memory will be a set of photographs, each being a collage created on a single photographic film and developed. The technique will incorporate a custom built light source to project masked collimated light on a target while the camera is triggered in long exposure mode. The idea traces its roots to combination printing and photomontage. In the mid 19th century, Oscar Rejlander developed a technique called combination printing for creating single images out of multiple negatives. In 1957, he made his best known work, The Two Ways of Life, which was a combination print made of thirty two negatives. Soon after, photographers like Henry Peach Robinson adopted the technique Robinson's best known work is Fading Away, created by joining five negatives.
Photoshop Background Eraser Tutorial Written by Steve Patterson. In this tutorial, we’ll learn all about the Background Eraser Tool in Photoshop and how to use it to easily remove background areas of an image. The Background Eraser Tool is especially useful with photos that contain lots of fine detail along the edges between your subject and its background, like, for example, if you want to erase the sky in an image without erasing the trees below it. But don't let the name fool you. The Background Eraser really has nothing to do with erasing backgrounds, since Photoshop has no way of knowing what's considered the background in a photo and what isn't.

20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic. What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles. While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics.
