Making Selections With The Pen Tool In Photoshop Written by Steve Patterson. When it comes to making selections in Photoshop, there's really two types of people - those who know how to use the Pen Tool, and those who struggle. Most people put off learning how to use the Pen Tool for as long as possible, while others never get around to learning it, believing it's just too confusing, too complicated, and just plain unnatural. Ultimately, their work in Photoshop suffers for it, since they're stuck relying on the Lasso Tool for just about everything they can't select with the Rectangular or Elliptical Marquee Tools. In this Adobe Photoshop tutorial, we're going to put an end to the suffering.
Unlock The Full Power Of Basic Selections In Photoshop Written by Steve Patterson.

Once you become familiar with the full power of basic selections, they’ll seem a whole lot more useful to you. Let’s start by taking a look at how to add to an existing selection. High Speed Motion Trail Effect Written by Steve Patterson. In this Photo Effects tutorial, we’ll learn how to add a sense of speed to an object using an easy to create motion blur effect! This "speed trail" effect is very popular in sports photography since it’s a great way to add motion, direction and excitement to an image, creating the illusion that an athlete, for example, is blazing past the competition at super human speed. Of course, this effect works just as well with a photo of your kids running in the backyard, or people dancing at a party, or any image where the subject should appear to be moving. I’ll be working with Photoshop CS4 for this tutorial, but you can create this effect with any version of Photoshop.

As I was working on the previous post, I realized the daytime scene could easily be shifted into a night scene to generate a more compelling image.
