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.
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.
By now we have all heard of and seen in many, many situations, the bokeh effect.

Bokeh is probably one of the simplest effects to reproduce with Photoshop, and there are a number of ways to do so.

This tutorial will show you how to use Photoshop’s adjustment layers to turn a daytime photo into a dusk/night time image. This is purely a colouring effect.
Created on PS CS5, there should be no problems following this tutorial on all the CS editions, and even earlier versions of Photoshop.
For some reason unknown to myself, I am fascinated by digital colouring. With such software as Photoshop and it’s layer modes, the job is made relatively simple if the original image works well with the techniques used.
In this short tutorial I will be showing you two very easy ways to create selective colour in a photograph. We will be looking at desaturating parts of a colour photo and colourising parts of a black and white photo. Each method works better with different subjects.
This tutorial takes my previous one (Photo to Pencil Sketch) a step further by creating part of the image as an ink outline sketch and applying it to torn paper. You will learn one method of creating torn edges in this tutorial - there are many different ways to do it. Using free stock images and Photoshop's built-in tools, create this interesting way of displaying your photos
This tutorial will show you how to easily transform a photograph to a pencil sketch using only Photoshop's built in tools and filters.
Bokeh... the Japanese word meaning 'blur' or 'haze'. This effect can be achieved very effectively through photography, but as with all things, it can be 'faked' with Photoshop. There are many bokeh backgrounds, textures, patterns and brushes available for Photoshop, and of course, many tutorials.
Here I will be showing you how to create a background bokeh effect to bring the foreground into sharper focus. This is a very easy tutorial and suitable for Photoshop beginners.
Another tutorial for displaying your photos a little differently. This is ideal for scrapbookers, for making photo slideshows, or just for an unusual way of displaying your photos. It is a very easy but time-consuming tutorial, good for Photoshop beginners. We will be using no external resources - just your own image and Photoshop's built-in tools.
