Your Very Own Vinyl Record

Your Very Own Vinyl Record

Your Very Own Vinyl Record

Your Very Own Vinyl Record – Here is a fun yet a bit complicated tutorial. Being a music nut, it’s a good one to have laying around. Using Photoshop, you are about to learn how to create your very own vinyl record.

Step 1 – Get It Started
I started out with a 300×300 image at 72dpi. I filled my background layer with a soft gray colour.

Next you want to create a “New Layer Set”. In the layers palette there is a “Folder” icon at the bottom. Click on that to create the new set. Name it if like, I named my “vinyl”. Now create a new layer inside of the layer set. In the layers palette, the thumbnail will be indented. Fill this layer with a very dark gray, I used #272727.

 

Now we are going to add some noise to this layer. Go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise. Use these settings…

Step 2 – Bring It Out
Next make a copy of the layer we just worked on. Once created, change the “Layer Style” to “Overlay”. Now we are going to change the “Brightness/Contrast” to bring out some of the highlights of the vinyl. Go to Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast. Here are the settings that I used…

The settings that you use are up to you. Just move the sliders around til you are happy with what you see.

Step 3 – Make The Record

Time now to create the shape of the record. I will use the “Shape” tool to do this.

Place your cursor in the middle of the document. Hold down SHIFT & ALT to create the circle. Holding down SHIFT & ALT makes a perfect circle, created from the middle outward.

After you have your shape created, you will notice that is not exactly in the center of the document. Here is the remedy for that situation. First select the “Move”tool by using the shortcut “V”. Then Strong>CTRL+A (win) / COMMAND+A (mac), to select all. (Notice the selection box around the entire document) Up in the top bar, you will see the “Alignment” choices. Choose the “Center Vertical” & “Center Horizontal”

Step 4 – Cut It Out
Now we got the shape of the record but it doesn’t look like a record. Well, that is what we are going to do on this step with some masking.

First thing that needs to be done is loading the selection of the shape. This is done by hold down CTRL (win) / COMMAND (mac) and clicking on the layer containing the shape. Holding down CTRL/COMMAND, take your cursor over the layer and you will notice the cursor changes to a finger with a square beside it. When you see this, that is when you need to click.

Now that the selection is loaded, we are going to use it as a layer mask. First thing, click the “Eye” icon on the shape layer to hide it. Then at the bottom of the layers palette, there is an icon that looks like a rectangle with a circle inside of it. That is the layer mask. Before you click it, make sure that you have the “Layer Set” selected. Once your “Layer Set” is selected, click the “Mask” icon. This is will apply the mask to every layer that is in the “Layer Set”.

Starting to look a bit like a record now but it is still missing the small center hole. Select the layer containing
the original circle shape. Once selected used the shortcut CTRL+J (win) / COMMAND+J (mac) to duplicate the layer. CTRL+T (win) / COMMAND+T (mac) to “Free Transform” the new shape.

In the same area where the “Align” commands were located earlier, there are some boxes with a chain between them. This is where we are going to scale down the shape. Click on the “Chain” first, this will make the transform uniform. Then in one of the boxes type “5” and hit enter twice. This will scale the circle down to 5% of it original size.

Like we did before, we need to apply the new shape to “Mask” we created. So, CTRL/COMMAND click on the new shape layer & hide it. Then choose your “Paint Brush” tool. Select the “Mask” that is applied to the “Layer Set” and paint the selection area Black. Now, the shape is complete.

Step 5 – Slipping Into Contrast
Now that we’ve got the shape and texture down, it’s time to make this vinyl record shimmer in the light. First thing to do is make a new layer above the shapes. I named mine “Contrast”because that is what this layer is going to give the record. In your toolbar, make sure that colours are black & white. (if they aren’t, simply hit “D”)
First thing to do is apply the “Clouds” filter.
Filter > Render > Clouds
Next is “Difference Clouds” –
Filter > Render > Difference Clouds

You need to apply this filter a couple of times, so use the shortcut CTRL+F
(win) / COMMAND+F (mac)
, this reapplies the filter.
Step 3 in this is another filter.
Filter > Blur > Radial Blur
Use these settings…
Now your record should look something like this…

Looks weird, but trust me, it will all work out in the end. Change the Layer Style of the “Contrast” layer to “Soft Light”. Then Image > Adjustments > Brightness/Contrast I’m not going to give you a setting for this adjustment. This is an area where you can play around with the Brightness & Contrast to get the feel that you are looking for. I gave the Brightness a +33 and the Contrast a -33. Here is what you should be looking at now…

Step 6 – The Highlight
In this step, we are going to add a nice highlight to record as if someone were holding it in their hands inspecting it.

First create a gradient, using these settings…

After you create the gradient, create a new layer above the “Contrast” layer and name it “HighLight”. Drag the gradient that you just created in the middle of the layer, like so…

Wicked. The gradient is now set. Now to transform the gradient to kind of round it off. With the gradient still selected, CTRL+T / COMMAND+T, to go into “Free Transform”. Now right click and you will see a menu pop up, select “Perspective”.

Use the top left handle of the “Free Transform” box, hold down SHIFT, and drag the handle down. You are wanting the gradient to take this shape…

Once you got it looking that way, hit enter to apply the gradient. Next change the layer style to “Soft Light” and wow, does that make a difference. I also dropped the opacity a bit and also nudge it down to where the points of the gradient are in the middle of the record. Here is what I can up with…

Step 7 – Tweak It If You Must
I created a sticker for the middle of the record to give it an authentic look. I did this by using my shape tool and brushes for design on it.
Do whatever you need to personalize your vinyl record. But that is it. Now if only Photoshop could play it…

Custom Brushes

Custom Brushes

Custom Brushes

Custom Brushes – Brushes are a necessity for Photoshopping. Colouring, defining an area, erasing, there are countless uses for them. But did you know that you can create your very own custom brushes and that they can be anything you want? Even a super awesome flying squirrel! I used to have an uncle named Earl. People always called him “Squirrelly” cause he always was looking around for squirrels.

So for this tutorial, I’m going to refer to our flying squirrel as Earl. Earl the Flying Squirrel.

In this tutorial, I’m going to teach you how to take this photo of Earl the Flying Squirrel and turn it into Earl the Flying Squirrel paint brush.

Step 1 – Get That Squirrel Out!!

First thing you need to do is extract the background so that all that you have is Earl all alone. To do this, I’m going to be using a “Quick Mask”. To enter the “Quick Mask” simply hit the letter “Q”. Using brushes, paint just Earl red. You’ll want to zoom in close and use varying brush sizes.

Then a swift strike of the “Delete” key

Use CTRL+D (win) / COMMAND+D (mac) to deselect it all.

Step 2 – Brush the Squirrel
So now you have yourself a squirrel all alone on a transparent background. It’s now time to turn Earl into a brush. Hold the CTRL / COMMAND key and click on the layer containing Earl. Your cursor should turn into a hand with a square beside it. When you see this, click on the layer. This will load only Earl as the selection.

Now the area that is currently selected will be the area that becomes the brush. So make sure that your selection doesn’t have any of the background around the edges. If it does just deselect, clean up and reselect like you just did.

Now that you have Earl ready to be a brush, lets turn him into one.

Edit > Define Brush

Once you “Define the Brush” a dialog box will pop up where you can name your brush. You will also notice the number underneath the thumbnail of the brush. This is the default size of the brush. As you can tell, it is certainly a large brush, but this is a good thing. This gives the brush lots more detail. It also helps if you are going to make it much larger than it is now, helping preserve that detail. Earl also has been turned “Grayscale”. Photoshop automatically does this for you. The reason that Earl is turned gray is so he can be any colour that you want him to be when you use him as a brush.

Now you’ve just made your very own Earl the Flying Squirrel brush. Open up a new document and play around. Hit “B” to select the brush tool and then right click on your new document. This your brushes palette & Earl will be all the way to the bottom.

Just use him as a regular brush now. You’ll see that whatever colour you have selected as your “Foreground” that is the colour the brush is. Also experiment with all the different brush settings. Depending on your verison of Photoshop, there will be an option for “Brush Settings”. You can set fades, textures, different pressures, the options are limitless.

Brushes just don’t have to be pics. They can anything you want them to be. Try using your pen tool to create custom shapes and use the same process to turn those shapes to brushes. Or maybe you created some awesome looking special effect, select it, turn it into a brush. Scan your signature and make it into a brush. Whatever you want to do, you can. Happy Photoshopping.

Black & White Photos With Colour Elements

Black & White Photos With Colour Elements

Black & White Photos With Colour Elements

Black & White Photos With Colour Elements – I personally am a big fan of black and white photos with certain objects remaining in colour. Especially when it’s a person’s eyes. (I’m a big supporter of eyes) This process is really not as hard to do than you think. Photoshop makes it quite easy.

You want to find an image that something in it that would certainly pop out if it was in colour and the rest black and white. I decided with this pic. I’m mainly going to focus on the strawberry because of it’s vivid red colour. If you don’t have a photo, click on mine and use it for this tutorial.

Step 1

As always when you are working with a photo, you never want to make any kind of changes to the original, so before we do anything else, we need to “Duplicate” the image. Use the shortcut, CTRL+J (win) / COMMAND+J (mac) to duplicate the image and place it on it’s very own layer.

Now that we have our “Duplicate” image, we can get to work making it look good. Select the strong>”Layer 1 Copy”, which it is our “Duplicate”.

Image > Adjustments > Desaturate

When you “Desaturate” an image, you aren’t changing it to black and white, but just taking all of the colour out of it, still leaving it RGB.

I want to add a bit of contrast to the photo. To do this, I’m going to use the “Levels” adjustment. Use the shortcut CTRL+L (win) / COMMAND+L (mac) to bring up the dialog box. Here are the settings
that I used but feel free to adjust the sliders as you please.

Step 2

Now we are going to take the strawberry and make it colour. We need to make the strawberry a selection. I’m going to use a “Quick Mask” to make my selection. If you don’t know how to create a “Quick Mask”, check out this tutorial to help you along your way.

A quick note here, when you are painting your mask on, it will be much easier to do it on the “Desaturated” layer if you are using the same photo as I am. The “Quick Mask” paints red and a strawberry is red. You do the math.

Once you have the strawberry selected, hit the “Q” button to exit the “Quick Mask”. You will notice that the selection area is around the strawberry as well as the image itself.

All we need is the strawberry, not the rest of the image. What we need to do is select the “Inverse”.

CTRL+SHIFT+I (win) / COMMAND+SHIFT+I (mac)

Now we have the selection that we need. Now click the “Eye” to turn off the “Desaturated” layer and click on the layer containing the colour photo. That is where we need to pull the selected area from.

Once you have the colour layer selected, use the shortcut CTRL+J (win) / COMMAND+J (mac) to once again “Duplicate” your selection. A new layer containing the selected strawberry is created above layer 1. In the layers palette, just drag layer 2 above layer 1 copy and turn the “Desaturated” layer back on and Viola, colour and black & white.

Step 3

Now we could just stop there but there is another little trick that I want to show you. Go back to the original colour layer and get back into “Quick Mask”. Zoom in on the eyes and make a selection out of them. Follow
the same steps as earlier to make the mask.

As we did previously, select the “Inverse” of the mask selection. Then use CTRL+J (win) / COMMAND+J (mac) to duplicate the selection to it’s own layer. Drag that layer above the
desaturated layer.

Now, her eyes look kinda scary, don’t you think. I actually want to change the colour of them. Make sure that you have the layer with the eyes selected and go to…

Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation

This is a great trick to know. With the “Hue/Saturation”
you can basically change the colour of anything. Once the dialog box is up, make sure that you check the “Colorize” box on the bottom right hand side. As soon as you check it, you will notice that the eyes change colour. Adjust the sliders as you see fit. I like green eyes, so here are the settings that I used.

I think that photos with this dynamic are amazing. They certainly stand apart from anything else. Use this knowledge on any kind of photo, it doesn’t have to be a person. Choose different elements to make your images pop more and people will think that you are a genius.

* How to easily change the appearance of any photograph or image, and apply cool special effects… effortlessly! (Like how to “flip”, add shadows, crop and so on, so forth)

* Discover Photoshops BIG secret – layers. As soon as you master these, you’ll be able to manipulate your images with ease, and make changes or test new effects in a snap.

* How to retouch and improve any photograph – easily.

* How to merge two (or more) photos together seamlessly – like the top magazines and newspapers do!

* How to “frame” a photo so that it looks like a professional fashion photographer took it. (This is so easy when you know how!)

* How to save your images in all the different formats – and which format is best for the Web (where you need “optimized” images that load quickly).

* How to use the “Crop” feature so you can quickly and easily trim a photo or “cut out” any part of an image you don’t want to appear.

The above represents just a small sample of what you’ll learn with the Photoshop Fast Track for Newbies video tutorials.

Imagenomic Portraiture

Inside the red circle in the image above, are your viewing options. This is pretty standard for all applications like this and includes all the usual suspects: Full screen, split screen, full screen “before”, and full screen “after”

The rest of the interface has been divided into five sections (more details on these portrait editing options below).

  • One: Smooth out the detail areas in your image
  • Two: Set the range of your skin tones to be masked
  • Three: Image enhancements
  • Four: View the mask you made in number 2, above
  • Five: Navigate around your image

But even before jumping into these, you will most likely want to begin with your…

Presets

You will definitely find this the very first place you should start in your portrait editing workflow.

There are a good number of Presets here. If one of them doesn’t get you where you want to go, you’ll usually find a Preset that will. At least that’s my situation with these. It’s probably no surprise, but I usually don’t find a Preset that gets me exactly to the finished portrait — regarless of whether it’s the Presets from Imagenomic’s Portraiture Professional, onOne’s PerfectPortrait, or Anthropics’ PortraitProfessional. But they can get close.

I always end up doing some slider tweaking, but Portraiture Pro does do a very nice job of getting me quite close. In fact, there were a few images in my review test where the Preset default was about 90% there. But in the vast majority, definitely tweak the sliders!

You can view your Presets either by name or by image and name together. A feature I really like here is that you can drag a slider to increase the size of the thumbnails. I like this one a lot because you can get a much better idea of what effect is going to come in before you select it. There are alot of nice Presets all the way to extreme contrast stuff.

Detail Smoothing

Here’s where a lot of the good stuff happens in removing or reducing wrinkles, blotchy skin, etc. This is a powerful tool and it pays to try different settings for your Fine, Medium, and Large details. It didn’t take me long to get the effect I wanted. Use the Threshold slider to control how strongly you bring your smoothing effect in.

Another nice feature here is that you can manually select different standard portrait sizes. Yes, there is an Auto Detect selection, but I did find on just a few test portaits I used that the results were slightly better after manually selecting a size. I don’t know why this is, but I guess the lesson is that if your portrait is a standard size, select it, just in case.

Skin Tones Mask

You might very well want to make a mask so only the skin tones are seeing your adjustments and this is the place to do it.

You can choose an eyedropper and click in your image to start fixing these skin tones — adding to, or removing from the mask.

As you can see, my mask is white and it’s done a pretty good job with this image. The only overlap is the fence behind the woman. This was basically impossible to remove because the tones were virtually identical to those of the skin. An option that would be nice here would be a brush to paint your mask.

Apart from that, I could get excellent control over tweaking the mask with the sliders.

Feathering: Controls how sharp the edge of the mask will be.

Opacity: Set to zero, no portrait editing effects will be seen so this gives you control over how strongly, on a global scale, your portrait editing work will appear. Set to maximum, all will come in to the full extent you set.

Fuzziness: This is very useful as it controls the extent to which the Mask is applied. Set to maximum, your portrait editing effects will affect the entire image. As you slide to the left, the Mask tightens up and your portrait editing effects are constrained to a smaller area. This is a very handy way to ensure that your portrait editing affects only the skin!

Show Mask: Select the color in which to view your mask. Even though it shows “None”, I changed it later to “White” – which is seen in the Mask Preview — just to clear up any confusion.

Eyedroppers: Selectively add to, or remove from the mask.

Hue/Saturation/Luminance: Control the skin tones to be edited.

Latitude: Control how much of a range of skin tones will be included in your further portrait editing.

Enhancements

Not much to explain here, really. The slider names pretty much do that for me.

This is yet another really nice portrait tweaking feature of Portrait Professional.

The Warmth, of course, slides to the right for a warmer, more yellow-ish feel. And to the left makes your portrait cooler and more blueish.

Sepia is one of my most favorite effects and here you can bring in that in with the Tint slider (there’s a Preset for that, too). You can also bring in the full spectrum of tints here.

Output and Mask Preview

The Output selections are real important to me because I usually bring the portrait back into Photoshop for some last-minute, minor tweaking. (In reality, it’s just so I knowthat I can do that in the future if I want.)

Anyway, this is a real handy feature for making layers. You could make the selection its own layer or even create a transparency mask.

The Mask Preview window shows you exactly what your mask is looking like.

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.

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.

Remove Red Eye Effects using Photoshop

Remove Red Eye Effects using Photoshop

In this Photoshop Tutorial we will remove red eye effects from a photo. Red eye is commonly occurs because a reflection of a camera flash to peoples eye retina. Especially this occurs when we shoot the camera in a low light room or even more in dark area. In dark condition, people will automatically enlarge their pupils, thus increasing the red eye effects to happen in photography.

How to remove Red Eye Effects on a Photograph using Photoshop

Step 1
Open the photo in Photoshop CS3, CS4 or maybe the CS5, because the tool we will use only available in those version. Of course this photo should be in digital format. If the photos are already printed, you have to scan it first.

Step 2
Select the Red Eye tool on the Photoshop toolbox. It is in a same place with Healing Brush tool.

Step 3
By using the Red Eye tool, make a square selection around the red eye. In this Photoshop tutorial, I correct the models right eye first.

Step 4
Repeat the process to the other eye. This way we can remove the red eye with Photoshop and correct the photos condition as we want it to be.

There are some Photography techniques and tips to reduce the change of red eye effect to happen, in the next page.

“I’ve been using your digital enhancement tutorials since I received them yesterday and love them! You did a wonderful job narrating them and I look forward to seeing more! Please be sure to put my name on your mailing list.
Sincerely,”

~Rebecca P.

“I do have to say that these videos are an exceptional tool that I could never find anywhere else!! Anyone who intends on using Photoshop should strongly consider investing in your videos. You definitely get straight to the point and speak in layman’s terms. You can’t beat the cost of the videos, either. The videos pay for themselves just after the first couple of satisfied clients. You actually spell it out better than the “Photoshop for Dummies” books. I love that you are directed for the portrait photographer! The books and manuals cover to broad of a spectrum. I just can’t express my gratitude enough.
THANKS AGAIN!!”

~Christine K.

I just wanted to say how much I love these videos. I have had Photoshop for awhile and had no idea how to really use it. Now I can do some really neat things. Thank you so much for making it so easy. It was worth every penny.”

~Barb W.

“How do I say thank you? I am trying to open a small studio in my home. I have not felt like I was ready to advertise although others like my portraits. Now I feel as though I am ready to begin on my journey. Please let me know when you have additional tutorials. It was well worth the money and I enjoyed learning from you. I have read books on Photoshop but did not learn from them the things you have taught. God bless and may you have great success.
Thanks again,”

“I just wanted to let you know something. Your tutorial was the single best Photoshop lesson I have ever had. It was simple, to the point, easy to understand and just awesome. I truly hope you will do more videos exploring more ways to use Photoshop with photos. I have seen too many that focus on graphics and not enough on photos. Yours was exactly what I was looking for and more. And please, if you come out with ANY new videos, I would LOVE to get an email as I will be one of the first to buy it.
Thanks Again,”

~Geo

“I love the videos that you have done, They have helped me more than you could know. I would like to know if you are going to be doing some more, I hope you are considering more…. I know there are many people who feel like I do… Your videos are by far the best….Thank you for helping people like myself.”

~Loretta

“Fabian… You’re the BEST! I am a VERY big fan. Please let me know if you make more…I want them ALL. I learn from you better than anyone I’ve ever been taught from.”

~Jennifer G

“Fabian…You are a legend, keep up the good work.”

~Ian O

Fabian…I LOVE your new videos!!!  They are absolutely OUTSTANDING!!!  I learned what I learned up to now from trial and error and a few online tutorials here and there.  But your video tips are very well organized, EASY to follow, and each had something new for me to add to my photo editing toolbox.  The next best thing about your tips is that they save me a TON of time vs. what I used to do before!!!  WOW – neat stuff!!!
I am GLAD I invested in this!”

“I would like to start off by saying that I am not a professional photographer, or an extremely experienced person on computers, just someone who really enjoys photography and being able to edit my own pictures! With that said, I recently purchased Photoshop Newbie’s and could not be happier! The videos are easy to follow and I am learning very fast just by following Fabian! I had looked into taking a Photoshop course and if you have also you will know how expensive it is just to take the beginner’s course, with Fabian’s detailed videos I personally believe that you learn just as much if not more and you have the videos as reference as well!

I highly recommend purchasing these to anyone who is interested in making beautiful pictures! Thank you so much Fabian for your easy to follow videos and I am hoping that you continue to make a lot more for me to benefit from!”

~Renee M

“I’m a UK freelance photographer and have spent years learning Photoshop the hard way… If these tutorials had been around when I started learning it would have saved me a lot of time, effort and frustration… Fabian shows how to do the things in a warm and friendly manner including making the mistakes that most beginners would make and shows you where the problems stem from… This helps greatly when you think you might be doing it right if you were just reading the instructions from a book, but then shows in real time what mistake you might be making and more importantly how to put it right…

There is the long and slow way to learn Photoshop by trial and error, or you can fast track to better professional looking images the Fabian Barajas way…”
