ps 2020 is here

Every year, Adobe releases a new version of Photoshop with a raft of new features, as well as subtle improvements to functions, workflow and performance. Of course, there are also updates throughout the year that come as part of a Creative Cloud subscription. But the annual release is something to look forward to, as Adobe often introduces several new commands or tools at once. The new Photoshop CC 2020 out now. It comes with an impressive list of new tools and enhanced features. Top of the list are the Object Selection Tool and improved Warp Transform, but there are also plenty of others worth looking at… 1 OBJECT SELECTION TOOL This game-changing selection tool uses machine learning to snap onto all kinds of objects in no time at all WATCH THE VIDEO http://bit.ly/37nx3rt Like the…

how to master the content-aware fill tool

WATCH THE VIDEO http://bit.ly/2kbpqpv The Content-Aware Fill command works by rebuilding parts of your image, helping you remove unwanted objects, improve messy details or tidy up a composition. The feature has been a part of Photoshop for some time, but was recently given a welcome update, making it much more controllable. Previously you would make a selection, then use Content-Aware Fill: Photoshop would determine what to remove by analyzing the rest of the frame and generating new pixels based on the content of the image. The problem is, it occasionally samples and uses parts that you don’t want to replicate. Here, for example, I want to remove the distracting leaf next to the lizard’s head. But a straightforward fill results in a mess of pixels, as the command samples details from the lizard’s…

splash paint portraits

WATCH THE VIDEO http://bit.ly/35ferpp You can have lots of fun with filters, Blending Modes and brushes in Photoshop – and the great thing is, they’re easy to use. A vibrant portrait effect like this might look complicated to do, but it’s actually pretty simple to pull off. In this project we’ll explain how. We’ve supplied a starting image, although it’s more fun to use your own – any portrait will do, but it helps if the subject is against a clear, bright backdrop. Aside from learning this effect, we’ll uncover useful Photoshop features like Smart Objects. These are key to a non-destructive workflow, as they allow you to keep filter effects editable. You can go back and tweak settings or try a new effect at any stage in your workflow. We’ve used…

good vibrations

WATCH THE VIDEO http://bit.ly/2o2vqxd Sometimes joy comes from creating a great image. Other times, the end result is more of an added bonus, and instead it’s the process behind the image that’s the most joyous part. This project definitely falls into the latter category… It can result in wonderfully vibrant photos, but the technique itself is just as compelling. That’s because in this project, you get to make paint dance! You get this effect by placing drops of paint on top of a speaker, then playing a song at high volume. As the speaker kicks out air, the paint jumps to the beat. There’s something hugely appealing about the idea of capturing music in this visual way. The speaker is simply a means of creating vibrations, so the music is somewhat secondary, but…

the set up how to make paint dance

1 SPEAKER You need a fairly powerful speaker with plenty of bass to make your paint jump into the air. We used the subwoofer from a TV sound system, placed on its side and connected to our phone via Bluetooth. We placed our camera on a tripod opposite the speaker. 2 CLING FILM The drops of paint are carefully placed onto a piece of taut cling film that’s stretched over the speaker. After a few seconds of frantic jumping the colors will mix together, creating a muddy green. So you need to refresh the paint and cling film after every few shots. 3 BLACK BACKDROP The black side of a reflector acts as a dark backdrop for our scene. It’s placed far enough away so that the flash doesn’t spill onto it. The paint can…
