MatheusAlbuquerquewww.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/ Matheus%20Albuquerque Image of the issueThis was developed for a tattoo campaign, where tattoo art and related elements were used. This image is 100% created in Photoshop; I took oceanic elements and used bubbles on a black background. David Pavlikwww.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/da505This is an image inspired by female beauty and sadness. First, I combined a few photos, then I used adjustment layers such as Curves and filters such as High Pass and Sharpen More to get an old-fashioned and retro effect. Alexandre Perezwww.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/ alexandreperezI tried to work with cool colours and use objects of proportional size to try and make the island realistic.

create posters with layers & masks

“LAYERS AND MASKS ARE FAR MORE THAN JUST FEATURES TO STAY ON TOP OF YOUR PSDS; THEY’RE A GATEWAY TO CREATING BIG, BRIGHT AND BOLD WORK” Layers and masks naturally work together: they’re the very nuts and bolts of your Photoshop projects. It’s rare to work on something that doesn’t require at least one of them, because they can help keep your work organised and your creative process quick and easy. But while layers and masks are tools to help you manage your work, there’s no reason you can’t create ambitious work with them as well.From minimal posters to movie posters, festival posters to floating-heads posters, there are skills you’ll need no matter what your work looks like. Layers and masks are cornerstones of managing your work, but they can…
