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.
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.
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!
Today I am bringing you 2 sets of free textures. The Satin Stripes is a set of 8 textures each with a different gradient overlaid. They are 2434px x 2434px 72ppi.
RGB Textures is a pack of 3 in red, green a blue - quite different and unusual textures. 3000px x 2000px 72ppi.
I hope you can use and enjoy these free packs.

This tutorial will walk you through the steps to create this liquid gold text effect. There are many gold text effect tutorials out there, but with this one I will show you how you can easily adapt it to create just about any liquid-filled text.
It is a fun effect using a method that can be played around with to achieve very different and interesting results.
There are many, many brushes available for Photoshop, and combining brushes with Photoshop’s layer modes can create some stunning colouring effects.
For this quick tip in colouring in Photoshop you will need brushes that have shading – solid shapes will not work with this method.
Using just a few colours and different layer modes you can create art with subtle shade differences, and the variances are almost endless – this is a great way to learn how the layer modes work, you can adjust, readjust and adjust again until you achieve the desired effects.
In this tutorial we will be using some adjustment layers in Photoshop to create a vintage effect on a modern photo.
After Step 4, if you don't wish to continue or don't have the time to, you can download the .psd file and apply it to your image. As the effects are presented in the individual adjustment layers, you can tweak them as necessary for the image you are working on.
Also, for the curves layer I have created a Curves preset which you can also download. The download link for the Curves preset is available in Step 8, and the .psd download link can be found at the bottom of the page.
Extraction of objects or people in photo manipulation is an art-form on its own!
There are many tutorials available for different methods of extraction, but at the end of the day, most manipulators will not use just one method – certain objects require certain methods, whether that is due to their size, complexity or whatever.
I am not advocating any particular method of extraction in this tip, rather, I am sharing a quick way of cleaning up after extraction (with a mask and the Brush tool).
By now we have all heard of and seen in many, many situations, the bokeh effect.
