Cinemagraph Tutorial - Cinemagraphs more than a photo, but not quite a video. The first time I ever see this type of photography was almost a week ago, I came across two amazing blog, from Jamie Beck and Coco Rocha. They make this awesome picture that they called “cinemagraph”. The cinemagraph are simply a .gif file with more artistic feel that the regular .gif you see everywhere. You need first a good picture that look great as a still photo. Now you have your video, open Photoshop CS5 go to file>open and search for the video In the animation palette select only the frames that you want the movement, one or two second are enough in most case but you make that decision. Now go to File>import>video frame to layers… Now the animation palette have the frame and in the layers palette have all the frame in layers that you can mask and edit.

Photoshop Tutorials - Age Progression Disclaimer: None of the given Photoshop Tutorials are written by me. They are all taken from various sources on the Internet and I compiled some of them for you. Hope you understand. More are in the line. Here’s a little tutorial showing you how I basically go about aging a woman’s face in Photoshop. Preface I've been asked several times by different members to post a tutorial on how I age-progress a person. Men and women age a little bit differently but since I've only aged female celebrities thus far, I'll just focus on women for this tutorial. Step 1: Choosing an Appropriate Photo When deciding to age-progress a celebrity’s face, I try to select a picture that is touched-up as little as possible. I find that candid shots, or any shots that have not been taken in a studio, work best because the resulting harsh lighting reveals more of the skin’s details i.e. slight bags under the eyes and faint wrinkles. Step 2: Collecting Reference Material Reference material is key in my method of aging.

Free Photoshop Plugins Photo Enhancement BleachBypass is a Photoshop-compatible plug-in designed to digitally simulate the traditional “bleach bypass” technique, producing pleasing film-like results. The bleach bypass, or “bleach skip” technique involves the partial or complete skipping of the bleaching stage during the processing of a colour film. This prevents the silver from being removed from the negative, and the result is a contrasty image with muted colours. The technique is often used extensively in motion pictures, such as “Saving Private Ryan” and “Three Kings”. Beautifier – soft focus and richness enhancing filter, perfect for portraiture. HotPixel automatically detects and removes “hot pixel” noise from digital camera images. Local Contrast Enhancement brings out detail.This is accomplished by increasing the contrast between a pixel’s value and the mean value of the adjacent pixels in a local area of the photo. Image Adjustment shows how different adjustments are made in programs like Photoshop.
