Although Photoshop does have a Sharpen filter, better results can be obtained using the High Pass filter, and you have the control over how much or how little you sharpen your image. In this quick tip I will show you how to sharpen all or some of your image.
Yesterday we saw 2012 out with some beautiful night photography, and today we welcome 2013 with stunning morning photography. Hopefully you will all have a wonderful New Year and it will continue to be perfect for you throughout the year.
On this New Year's Eve, we are bringing you some beautiful night photography as 2012 bows out making way for 2013 and all of it's promise. A year that saw many new trends in website design, along with some new standards in design that were initially seen as trends but have turned into much more - here I refer to the use of HTML5 and CSS3 and the development of responsive websites. I hope you all had a wonderful 2012 as we say a fond farewell to it.
This is an easy tutorial using a free font, gradient set, brush set and Photoshop's built-in tools to get a real-looking rusty text effect. There are quite a few steps to this tutorial, but I think the end result justifies the time needed to complete it.
Nature – the greatest artist of all time! Where artists and designers have to carefully colour-match everything, nature seems to be able to throw every shade of every colour into the mix without causing any clashes – just beauty. We may not be able to visit the beach, a lake or the mountains, but we can use the stunning high quality free wallpapers that are on offer to bring these vistas to our desktops. This is a round-up of just 30 such beautiful free nature wallpapers.
This is an easy tutorial, you need no more knowledge than knowing your way around Photoshop to complete this text effect, and it uses a free font and a canvas texture. All other effects are generated by Photoshop's built-in tools. However, be warned, it is quite time-consuming!
In web design, for quite some years now, trends have come and gone, but black has remained the 'new black'. Black is, maybe surprisingly, the most versatile colour for website design – it can be used for both very formal and very casual websites, and everything in between. This article is showcasing some extremely effective, beautifully designed black websites for your inspiration.
Imagine the scene: a beautiful sunny day, no pressing, urgent work or engagements, the rolling hills in perfect view just outside the door, a gentle breeze and a table and chairs waiting to be occupied. A bottle of wine on hand, along with a couple of glasses, and the person you most like to spend time with right there to share the wine with you... idealism to the max! Of course, that is not the situation most of us are in right now, so here is a selection of beautiful wine-related photographs to take you off to dreamland for a few minutes.
Moonlight is considered to be a romantic time by many. Sunshine tends to throw yellow light on everything it touches, while moonlight often makes everything look blue. To achieve an excellent moonlit photograph long exposure times are required, water and moonlight together can create a fantasy-like scene, making water – the ocean, a river or even a pond, one of the best settings for moonlight photography.
Here we have selected some beautiful, romantic examples of moonlight photography for your viewing pleasure.
Planes, Trains and Automobiles was the title of a very funny 1987 film starring Steve Martin and John Candy. Surely the name was no accident.... those three forms of transport are the fastest means of getting from A to B, and represent 'boys' toys'.
You don't have to be a boy to appreciate speed and motion, and having a desktop wallpaper in that vein may inspire and motivate workflow (no guarantees here!). So today we bring you a selection of wallpapers featuring Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
