Photoshop Tutorial : Photo To Lineart To Brush

Photoshop Tutorial : Photo To Lineart To Brush

I did a tutorial called photo-to-lineart and realised that I should have taken it one step further and showed you how to create a brush from the lineart. It could come in handy for doing a grunge type image or something similar. You can start with the image below to practise on if you like, […]

Photoshop Tutorial : Dreamy Glow For Portraits

Photoshop Tutorial : Dreamy Glow For Portraits

This technique is an oldie, but a goodie. I think Eddie Tapp was the first person I saw do it and there have been variations, but for a quick and interesting portrait effect this is terrific. It is not a beauty retouch. The image is brought to us by hamletnc over at Stock Xchange I […]

Photoshop Tutorial : Pop Those Colours Using LAB Mode

Photoshop Tutorial : Pop Those Colours Using LAB Mode

The mysterious Lab colour space 🙂 Firstly, let me suggest that if you really want to know about the Lab colour space you get your hands on anything by Dan Margulis. He is the guy the gurus go to when they want to know something about it, he’s the man. A quick way of looking […]

Photoshop Tutorial : Rugged, Gritty Effect

Photoshop Tutorial : Rugged, Gritty Effect

I didn’t really know what to call this 🙂 Probably aimed at portraits, but you could try it on other things to see how it turns out. The image is brought to us by Orbán Ferenc over at the Stock Exchange site. All the settings used are relevant to this file 800 X 600@72dpi, they […]

Photoshop Tutorial : Create A Bokeh Effect

Photoshop Tutorial : Create A Bokeh Effect

This probably isn’t really a Bokeh effect, but it will give you the tools to create one, if you take more time that I am going to take in this tutorial. I’ve opened a new file 800 X 600@72 dpi with a white background (this can be changed later), and then created a new layer […]

Photoshop Tutorial : Selective Colouring With A Twist

Photoshop Tutorial : Selective Colouring With A Twist

I like selective colouring, when it’s done properly of course. Good thing is that it is relatively easy to do and can certainly add drama and impact to an image. Grab yourself an image, use an adjustment layer (well I hope you use an adjustment layer) to desaturate the image, or use one of the […]

Photoshop Tutorial : Another Quick Fix For Portraits

Photoshop Tutorial : Another Quick Fix For Portraits

Don’t just think of portraits as involving people, I think this will work well with animals as well. This process is dependant on lots of factors, personal taste being one of them. The blend modes for the layers and the sharpening and blurring will still be the same. However, the amounts of blurring and sharpening […]

Photoshop Tutorial : New To Old

Photoshop Tutorial : New To Old

Most of us probably spend our time trying to make old photos new again – so, I thought it would make a nice change if we took a new photo and made it old. All of the settings will be relevant to the start image 800 x 585 @72 dpi. You can practise on the […]

Photoshop Tutorial : Create An Orton Effect

Photoshop Tutorial : Create An Orton Effect

The Orton Effect is named after Michael Orton who first used the technique and is a sandwich of two images, one in focus the other out of focus. With the advent of Digital Photography and Image editing programs, the Orton Effect has been done for years in various ways, but it does come down to […]
