Object Transformation
Object Transformation
by: Claf - 12/23/2005

First, it's important to visualize enough well if there's enough elements in the original picture that can be used to make the transformation. Secondly, it can be helpful to find some good pictures as references to make the new object. For this one, I used no reference.

Making Snow
Making Snow
by: YerPalAl - 02/03/2005

Making snow is not all that hard, but it does consume some time. We will start with an earlier picture that is appropriate and start with the basics and proceed from there. First thing I do with any chop is to up the resolution from the crappy 72 dpi to 300. This allows me cleaner work overall. This also adds some steps that may or may not be needed if you don’t do this.

Photograph Color Correction
Photograph Color Correction
by: ScionShade - 12/06/2004

Color correction can be done in moments. It is a simple and effective way to take your digital images and make them warmer, brighter and more pleasing to the eye. We will use "Threshold", "Curves", a little erasing. Finally, for an added punch we'll use PS's "Color Filter". After doing this process a couple times, an image can be greatly enhanced in only one or two minutes.

Depth of Field
Depth of Field
by: chadchud - 11/30/2004

For the effect i wanted to create, I needed to work on the original image before it was to be pasted into the main file. I wanted the image to look printed, with bleeding lines (as if the head wasn't aligned properly) and I wanted the colours to be slightly different, and a bit more plain.

Perspective
Perspective
by: Fugue - 11/29/2004

Have you ever looked at an entry and thought "something looks wrong here, but I can't quite put my finger on it"? Well, 9 times out of 10, it's probably a perspective problem. Sometimes you can cheat or "force the perspective" without it being an obvious problem, just as you can cheat the realism of shadows/reflections to some degree.

More luminosity
More luminosity
by: ledirlo - 04/28/2004

I'll say it again: luminosity is the key to making good pictures; for those who don't know , PHOTOgraphy means "light-print".Photo means light (photon), when your eyes see an object , it doesn't see the object but the light it reflects, absorbs, and/or emits.The intensity of light , it's tint, falloff , difuse map are what make your brain recognize an object.

Light is the basis of photography, therefore it's the part one has to master in order to produce consistent pics, but it is also the toughest part.From correcting the colors, the exposition, painting the highlights and shadows, and/or reflections, handling glossiness, light should be the center of your preocupations.

Layer Blending Optons
Layer Blending Optons
by: ledirlo - 08/13/2003

As you may have noticed, the bevel option is very very cool, as it lets you make a pasted object more realistic, though it is more obvious when it is set with a background, so the depth cue is more obvious.When you buy Photoshop, you discover you have many layer styles that are pretty useless, according to me they are just included so you get to learn how they work.

General Design Tips
by: ledirlo - 08/11/2003

Photo editing, or illustration may be practiced for fun, but no one can pretend being a "designer" without knowing the rules of graphic design.Many people think that being original, and thinking out of the box is a good thing, but it actually isn't if you don't follow the rules...Even the weirdest looking ads,or the funniest ones, follow these rules.
