Photoshop Tutorial : Lets make it rain

Photoshop Tutorial : Lets make it rain

Perhaps you want to composite some images together to make a scarey, stormy image. Or maybe you have an image that has storm clouds, is dark and overcast and would benefit with some rain added to it – or maybe some snow for that winters scene. Start and Finish Images Using a couple of filters […]

Photoshop Tutorial : The Smudge Tool

Photoshop Tutorial : The Smudge Tool

The smudge tool doesn’t sound like a terribly exciting tool, something that you could have some fun with – but it can be and we’re going to look at one way in this tutorial. This tutorial is going to involve the use of the pen tool, but it will be painless 🙂 The first thing […]

Photoshop Tutorial : Gradient Mapping

Photoshop Tutorial : Gradient Mapping

Gradient Maps are one of those adjustments in Photoshop that people feel they couldn’t use for any useful purpose with their images.

Photoshop Tutorial : Etched Glass Effect

Photoshop Tutorial : Etched Glass Effect

You can make this an etched glass effect, or, by inverting the filter, make it appear as though the shape/type/whatever is moulded in the glass.

Photoshop Tutorial : Using The History Brush Tool

Photoshop Tutorial : Using The History Brush Tool

With more people using adjustment layers, the History Brush Tool isn’t used as often as it used to be. It is still useful to know how the tool works though, just in case you ever find the need to use it. I’m more likely to use the HB tool in image restoration than anywhere else, […]

Photoshop Tutorial : Quick Colour Correction Techniques

So lets look at a couple more techniques you can use for colour correction (fixing colour casts etc.,) in Photoshop. You can probably use both of these methods in any image editing software btw. Neither of these techniques will work on all images, but because they are so quick to do, they are usally worth […]
