you are welcome and encouraged to join Photoshop-Haven. After all… We were all novices at one time or another, and still are when we learn new features and concepts!

Photoshop-Haven caters to the discussion of Adobe Photoshop, it’s plugins, and all aspects of digital design, photography, image creation, image protection and copyright infringement and any other subject directly related.

The group brings the novice and professional together — in a friendly learning environment — to share ideas, resources, become more proficient, reach their highest potential and fulfill their creative — graphic design — dreams.

Roz Fruchtman says: “I am continually learning… Art can be found anyplace, anytime, and under the most peculiar circumstances!  I have seen the ugliest photographic image(s) turn into magnificent original works of art — using the proper plugin filters and/or a little imagination!”  On the other hand, whose to say which plugin is proper or not! To quote an old cliche “Art is in the eye of the beholder!” The more I design the more I believe this.

Photoshop-Haven’s membership includes professional photographers as well as the novice and/or hobbyist, digital and graphic artists, illustrators, web designers/developers, consultants, scrap bookers, etc. After discovering my own flair for digital design late in life… I have come to believe… Absolutely everyone has artistic abilities, therefore, Photoshop-Haven’s virtual doors are open to embrace and welcome all!

As in life… The only limits in designing are “those limits we place upon ourselves!”

JOIN US… We “will” grow together — in art, creativity and ideas.

Adobe Photoshop can be a complex tool

Adobe Photoshop can be a complex tool

Adobe Photoshop can be a complex tool

Adobe Photoshop can be a complex tool only because you can do so much with it, however for in this video series, we’re going to keep it as simple as possible. In fact, in this video you’ll see an overview of the few tools and Adobe Photoshop features we will use. When you see this video, you’ll see how you can do so much with so few features, but you’ll learn how to use them in depth in the future videos.

When you create your own minisites, you’ll need to have access to professional photography to make your designs look great for whatever subject matter. Well, in this video, you’ll learn the importance of using Royalty free images and how you can find them to fulfill your needs.

The Adobe Photoshop lasso and crop tools are the tools that you’ll use to take people and objects out of regular pictures and put into your minisite designs. I’m sure you’ve seen headers with people or objects in them right? We’ll that’s where the lasso tool and crop tools come into play. So you’ll learn what they can do for you, but most importantly how to use them correctly.

Layers are the big secret to making photos come to life. In Photoshop you can take several photos and merge them together to make it looks like it’s one picture. At the same time, layers will make your life as a minisite creator so much easier, you’ll save lots of time. In this video, you’ll learn how to use layers to your advantage.

Do you remember looking at a picture and saying to yourself, nice picture, it’s looks right. Or maybe you thought, “that picture doesn’t look right”. We’ll this is when balancing your designs comes into play. If you learn how to balance your headers, footers, ecovers, and more correctly you’ll learn how to make your minisites look right when people look at them.

Here’s the fun part. You were shown videos 1-5 for a reason, that is, to help you understand the basic fundamental concepts before you got started creating the actual designs. The best part, is that you can take videos 1-5 and apply them to other things besides just minisites! So with that said in this video, you’ll learn how to create a professional minisite header using the tools Adobe Photoshop and what you learned earlier.

Just as it says, you’ll learn how to take the header you designed in the previous video and create an ebook or dvd ecover. You see, creating the header first allows you to understand how to easily transfer the designs to the ecover and balance it out.

Lastly, you’ll learn how to create the final touches of the minisite, which is the background and the footer. These two are very easy to create, because you can use your learning experience from videos 6 and 7 to transfer those ideas to video 8.

By now, you’ve probably realized that when people say Web 2.0 graphics, what they mean is new style or new look graphics are being given. Well, long long ago, text logos looked bland and normally were made up one purely one color, no gradients and no shiny look. In this video, you’ll learn how to give your text logos a cool shiny gradient look, as well as a reflection. This is something many designers create nowadays.

Photoshop Tutorial-How to Use Action

Photoshop Tutorial-How to Use Action

Photoshop Tutorial-How to Use Action

Photoshop Tutorial-How to Use Action – This is a Photoshop tutorial about how we use Action. Action is a series of steps that we do on image that recorded by Photoshop. By default Photoshop is already come with some Action. We can make our own action too, but this will be posted in later post. Now I am writing about how to use the action first to make it easier to understand before we make action of our own image editing steps.

First we need to open the Action Panel. Action Panel can be open by select Window > Action on Photoshop menu bar. And then open any image we need to use along with the action.

Sometimes an action can only be applied to specific image condition, such a determined size, or the image need to have a selection first, and so on. Like in this Photoshop tutorial, because the Wood Frame action can only be applied on a large image, so there is a warning dialog to make us sure that the image meet the requirement.

5 Easy Ways to Customize a WordPress Theme

Whether you’re starting a blog on WordPress

Whether you’re starting a blog on WordPress as a way to keep your family and friends informed of what you’re doing, you want to share your opinions with the world and meet like-minded people across the globe, or you’d like to add value to your business website by providing customers with the updated content you can offer via a blog (while increasing your ability to practice SEO), you’ll find that there are plenty of options to help you kick off your blog right.

And once you’ve got a basic idea

And once you’ve got a basic idea in place for content, as well as a plan for archiving and updating, you might want to start thinking about the layout and the finishing touches. Although WordPress offers a slew of ready-made themes to choose from, many bloggers are interested in the prospect of customization to ensure that they’re online offerings stand out from the herd. So here are just a few easy ways to go about customizing whichever WordPress theme you choose as a springboard for you blog design.

  1. Use branded content. Perhaps the best way for businesses to customize their WordPress blog is by adding branded content, including their company name and logo on the header, as well as graphics, approved text, and even colors that match their other branded materials (online and in print). This will help you to stand out from the crowd and it will make your blog recognizable to anyone that is already familiar with your brand. As for bloggers that aren’t incorporated, there’s no reason not to start developing your personal brand via your blog.
  2. Change the layout. Whether your theme offers direct customization or you need to go into template files in order to edit the layout, making changes to headers, footers, sidebars, and so on can help you to create the custom blog space you have in mind. Even small changes like this can help to differentiate your WordPress blog from others with the same theme.
  3. Alter fonts and colors. You may choose a theme based on certain elements, such as the layout, with the idea of changing the fonts and colors so that they’re more in keeping with your brand, your niche, or your personal taste. This is just one more way to get the aesthetic you want for your blog.
  4. Add plugins. You might be surprised by how many plugins are compatible with WordPress. In fact, they have an official directory (wordpress.org/plugins/) to help you choose the ones that are right for your site. They currently offer more than 27,000.
  5. Create your own graphics. Rather than using clip art provided by WordPress or other sites, consider getting crafty and creating your own buttons, bars, photos, and an entire infographic world to post on your blog. The more custom content you create, not just textual, but graphic, as well, the better chance you have to design a truly unique experience for visitors. Although you may have chosen WordPress for your blog building experience because it is easy to get started, mainly thanks to ready-made templates and themes, you will certainly pick up the knowledge and skills needed to customize your blog over time if you make an effort to learn (and there are plenty of tutorials out there to guide you). Before long you’ll be able to implement all of the customization you want.
