Text In Stitches | Text Effects Introduction Over the years as a graphic designer I’ve accumulated a wealth of custom brushes, shapes and actions that I keep carefully organized and labeled for future use. The brush set I’ll be sharing with you today has been in my collection for probably five of six years and every once in a while I’ll find a good reason to load it into my brushes palette. If you’re playing along at home you should download the brush set before we get started. Step 1 Lets go ahead and begin by opening a new document in Photoshop. Since stitching on a plain white canvas is a little silly, lets go ahead and spice up the Background layer with a little texture. Step 2 Now that our Background layer is unlocked we’re going to add a Pattern Overlay Layer Style to it which will give us a quick and easy denim background to work with. Control-Click (PC: Right-Click) on the Background layer in the Layers palette and choose Blending Options from the menu. Step 3 Step 4 It’s now time to add some text to our document.

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. Here are the exact color codes: 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. In fact all we want to achieve are some nice curves.

Image Noise Reduction | Image Editing Tutorials Image Editing Tutorial You might have noticed that under certain conditions, the image acquired with your DSLR has far too much information, thus creating noise and digital artifacts that mar your photo. This is particularly an issue when you're shooting at night and/or with a high ISO in other low-light conditions... it's the downside of attempting to capture an image when the exposure latitude (the difference between the lightest and darkest section) is wide. So Photoshop has the ability, when properly applied, to eliminate a tremendous amount of that noise. Here are a few methods to do it.

Create a Baseball-Inspired Text Effect in Photoshop Applying texture to a text effect can be a lot of fun. In this tutorial we will explain how to create a baseball-inspired text effect using layer styles, patterns, and brushes. Let's get started! The following assets were used during the production of this tutorial. Create a new document that is 1024 x 645 px. You can use any other values for the Height and Width depending on the text you are going to create. Download the Grass Texture 1, and place it on top of your "Background" layer, then resize it as needed. Rename the layer to "Grass Texture". The grass colors are a bit dark and desaturated. Go to Image > Adjustments > Levels, and change the Highlights value to 226. Create the text using the font Merkin. Press the Ctrl/Cmd key and click the text layer's icon to create a selection. Go to Select > Modify > Expand, and type in 15. Create a new layer below the text layer and call it "Stroke". Set the Foreground color to #e7e7e7, and fill the selection with that color.

How to Apply a Tilt-Shift Effect to Your Photos in Photoshop | designerbooster In this tutorial, I`m going to show you how to apply a very nice tilt-shift effect to your photos. The result will give you the impression that the picture is just a miniature-scale model. This effect is very easily to achieve in Photoshop following just a few steps and combined with some simple image adjustments will deliver a high-quality miniature-faking outcome. Tilt-Shift photo effect can be achieved straight from your camera while taking photos, using tilt-shift lens, which simulates a shallow depth of field. Many people use the term of “Tilt-Shift” when referring to this type of effect, but more accurate is to use the term called “Miniature faking”. Miniature faking is a process in which a photograph of a life-size location or object is made to look like a photograph of a miniature scale model. Okay, enough talking, let`s do some miniature-faking. Next step is to switch to “Edit in Quick Mask Mode(Q)”. Now press again “Q” or “Edit in Standard Mode”. Bookmark & Share Related posts:
