Eye Sharpening - Photoshop Tutorial - 416 Studios With this tutorial you can create amazing, bright eyes within minutes. First retouch, adjust levels and do all necessary colour corrections on your image. With a Lasso Tool (L) select the eyes (hold Shift key to add to selection). Hit Ctrl+J to copy selection to a new layer. Use Smart Sharpen filter on the eyes, the choice of right settings will depend on the size of your file. Add a layer mask to the sharpened layer, then using a white soft brush on 50% bring back paint only iris’ and pupils to expose the sharpened eyes. Using levels brighten the whole picture and then copy mask from previous layer to select only eyes by holding Alt while dragging the sharpened mask (“layer 1” in the pic) onto the “levels 2” layer. With a Colour Balance set desired eye colour, keep “Preserve Luminosity” ticked, again use copy of previously created mask to select eyes only. Reduce opacity of the colour layer to make the eyes look more natural. And voilà, the image is ready.

Turn a Red Car to Gold in Photoshop Excerpted from Deke's Techniques on Whether you're aiming for realism or an exaggerated effect that grabs attention, it's often handy to be able to change the color of one object in a photo without affecting the rest of the image. Most people will tell you to use Adobe Photoshop's Hue/Saturation command to do this, but if the object you're changing has hue variations — not just one flat shade of red, for example — this relative adjustment won't work. Instead, you need to make an absolute adjustment. "A mask?" Visit Deke's Techniques for more Photoshop and Illustrator creative how-to projects in about 10 minutes. How To Create a Realistic Money Effect in Photoshop The classic illustration style used on money is something I’ve always wanted to figure out how to replicate in Photoshop. There’s plenty of Photoshop tutorials that show how to create a basic halftone line effect, but they never quite capture that authentic engraved look with plenty of shading and tone. After lots of trial and error I finally managed to figure it out, so here’s an in depth tutorial on how to create a realistic money illustration effect in Photoshop (with some help from Illustrator!). The effect we’ll be creating in today’s tutorial is this vintage engraved or etched illustration style that builds up the tonal areas of an image with lots of tiny lines. Unlike the basic halftone line effect used in other tutorials, this method actually uses curved and wavy lines that vary in weight to produce an accurate replica of this classic illustration technique. Enter 4mm in the Size option and apply 11 ridges in the settings. Change the Selection option to Shadows then hit OK.

What We’ll Be Creating Getting Started… Create a new document (Ctrl + N) with the dimensions 2274 x 2540 with any colored background. Now, select the “Ellipse Tool” (U) and drag out a big ellipse onto the canvas. Label the first ellipse layer “Inside”, then create a further two more circles underneath the “Inside” layer. Label the two new circles “Edge” and “Outer” as shown in the image above. Adding The Styles It doesn’t look much like a medal at the moment so lets go ahead and add some styles to what we’ve created so far. Now, add the following layer styles the “Edge” layer. And finally, add the following layer styles to the “Inside” layer. Adding Some Detail Inside the medal create two new circles using the “Ellipse Tool” (U). You should have something like this.

Five Minute Upgrade - Making Your Design Pop 1. Brighten Colors If you have a design that you just feel isn’t anything special – stop – crank up the color intensity – then reevaluate. Saturation plays a big role as far as mood goes. If you ever feel like you’re lacking inspiration when it comes to color schemes there are some great online tools, not to mention our own color series. 2. Monochromatic themes are great, there are some great black and white designs and sometimes using only a single color makes designing easier. 3. Here’s the deal, align your text and things will look better, not to mention it will increase your scannability. 4. This was discussed wonderfully over at PsdTuts a while back but there are a few key things to keep in mind. Don’t be afraid to use shadows sparingly, helps fight the flat and boring look.1px lines are great at clearly defining edges.Using faint gradients over text and backgrounds gives a subtle 3D look. 5. Overlap your images in ways that are out of the ordinary. 6. 7. 8. The Wrap Up Google+
