One of the things you'll come to appreciate the more you work in Adobe Photoshop is automation. Typically you'll get into a groove in design where you'll need to perform the same (or similar) tasks over and over on multiple images, and that can get tedious. But Photoshop can alleviate that tedium through Actions.

If you're new to Adobe Photoshop, it's likely you haven't played around with paths too much. The path tools in Photoshop aren't really like those in vector illustration tools (like Illustrator), which are used principally for the creation of vector objects. In Photoshop, paths can be used (clumsily) for this purpose. But they have a more useful function in image manipulation: masking.

This is one that threw me for a loop for a while. I rely pretty heavily on Adobe ImageReady for my batch image processing, working almost exclusively with droplets I've created over the years. But sometimes these droplets need to be updated. No trouble usually: Just make the changes to the original action, and recreate your droplet from that. But what happens if you no longer have the original action?

If you're an Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Pro 2.0 user, or if you have the Adobe Creative Suite Production Studio, you may not realize how easy it is to create and use Photoshop graphics within the timeline of Premiere. In this tutorial, we?ll make the round trip from Premiere to Photoshop and back, creating a graphic and then watching it dynamically change in Premiere as we modify it in Photoshop. Then, we'll see how layers created in Photoshop behave inside Premiere. Let?s fire up these two applications and see how well they work together.

Generally it isn't too difficult to find your way around Adobe Photoshop, even for novices. But there are tricks that you pick up along the way that can help you work more quickly and efficiently and alleviate some of the frustration that can arise from doing things "the hard way" unwittingly. With this in mind, I kick off my first extended series of tutorials dealing specifically with time-saving tips, starting off with a mini-series on making selections.

Custom Patches in DVD Studio Pro 4, Part 2

Patches in DVD Studio Pro are custom elements that you can use to change the appearance of buttons in your menus. Functioning somewhat like Photoshop-based buttons, patches can take you far beyond simple still masks and styles with motion masks, motion shapes and even special effects like tinting and blurring. And, despite what DVD Studio Pro's user manual states, it is possible even to create your own custom patches for virtually unlimited possibilities.

In DVD Studio Pro, there are three fairly straightforward methods for creating buttons for your menus. You can simply click and drag to create a hotspot over your background; you can drop an asset onto your menu to make a button; and you can create custom shape files in Adobe Photoshop, then add asset on top of those. But there's also a fourth method, one that's completely undocumented, that can not only let you use custom shapes with your assets, but also apply special effects to your buttons, from motion masks to color filters and beyond.

Author: Dave Nagel    
As we saw in our last tutorial on Adobe Photoshop, it's entirely feasible to paint with depth using the program's built-in paint engine combined with layer styles. But there's more to it than simply applying a Bevel and Emboss layer style and painting away. All of the settings of your layer style can affect the appearance of depth in your brush strokes when you're trying to create thick, wet, chunky or other impasto-like effects.

One of the limitations of Photoshop's paint engine is that it doesn't allow you to paint with depth. In dedicated paint programs, like Synthetik Studio Artist and Corel Painter (among others), there are various options for creating impasto-like effects, adding chunkiness to a paint stroke, bump mapping, texture mapping and the like. Not so in Photoshop. But there are other ways to add depth to your brushes.

Last time around in Adobe Photoshop, we took a look at three methods for merging documents in Adobe Photoshop CS2 while maintaining layer integrity. Those methods were light years ahead of the kinds of tricks you had to pull in Photoshop prior to the release of CS2.

I'll also provide you with seven preset actions for handling a variety of situations.

I get this question all the time: "How do I merge two documents in Photoshop while maintaining the layer structures of the original documents?" Prior to Photoshop CS2, this wasn't a pleasant prospect. You could export layers as individual files, then automate the copy/paste process to bring all of them together, but that wasn't really feasible in most cases. Now, in Photoshop CS2, the options are greatly expanded, making the process both flexible and easy.

With the introduction of the Animation palette in Adobe Photoshop CS2, rotoscoping in the world's most popular pro image editing application has become a reality. Well, almost. As we discussed last week, the trick is getting your animations into Photoshop in the first place. With 8-bit image sequences, the idea is to use ImageReady as a jumping off point. But ImageReady doesn't support 16-bit images. So how do you get 16-bit sequences into Photoshop while maintaining your original bit depth?

The Spot Healing brush in Photoshop CS2 isn't just for removing blemishes from people's faces.

In the first part of this tutorial series, we looked at using Photoshop CS2's brand new Spot Healing brush to remove simple blemishes from a subject's face with, essentially, one click of the mouse. But what if the blemishes in your image are so concentrated that no combination of these techniques will work? After all, if the entire surface of the subject's face is flawed, there is no clean area for the Spot Healing brush to sample, so rather than removing blemishes, you'll just be spreading them around and rearranging them.

In compositing, there's nothing worse than a bad mask. And nowhere is it easier to mess up your mask than on a subject's hair, especially when it's blurred or obscured by a complex background or hazy foreground, making it pretty much impossible to get an accurate mask at all. There are two possible solutions for this. One is to settle for a mask that looks like it was done with an X-Acto knife (the kind you see in pop magazines). The other is to retouch the masked image with Photoshop's paint tools.

And we'll also use a Photoshop graphic as a Track Matte in Premiere Pro, and see how well the two Adobe applications are able to work together.

Gradient Clipping Masks in Adobe Photoshop
http://photoshop.digitalmedianet.com/articles/viewarticle.jsp?id=27264     Date:    2004-08-06
Author: Dave Nagel    
I get asked fairly regularly how to fade the opacity of an image--let to right, top to bottom, center to edges. The answer is to be found in gradients, but there are several ways to do it. You can apply a gradient in Quick Mask mode; you can use a layer's blending options to merge it with an underlying gradient; or you can use a much more effective method, one that's both editable and non-destructive to your image.

Building Menus in Adobe Photoshop for Encore DVD
http://photoshop.digitalmedianet.com/articles/viewarticle.jsp?id=25879     Date:    2004-05-27
Author: Adobe Systems    
Adobe Encore DVD works closely with Adobe Photoshop. You can take advantage of the powerful design tools of Photoshop to create menus and buttons. If you add the proper layer-name prefixes to the layers in your menus, Adobe Encore DVD will automatically recognize button sets, highlighting, and video thumbnails. Once you import the menu into a project, you can modify it as you would any menu created in Adobe Encore DVD or you can jump back to Photoshop without closing the project.

Photoshop Basics: Gradients
http://photoshop.digitalmedianet.com/articles/viewarticle.jsp?id=24620     Date:    2004-03-29
Author: Dave Nagel    
It's impractical for most users to get to know every aspect of Adobe Photoshop. Even advanced Photoshop users limit themselves to a certain workflow that precludes comprehensive knowledge of the program. Yet, every now and again, we all have to expand beyond our comfort zone and get into areas of the program that we're not familiar with, even on the most basic level. So I thought we'd launch a new tutorial series that takes a step back to explore some of these fundamentals for compositing, painting, masking and effects creation, starting with the first in a two-part miniseries on gradients.

The Color Replacement tool is one of those new tools that doesn't receive a whole lot of attention in the vast array of new features introduced in Adobe Photoshop CS. It is, nevertheless, a handy little gizmo, one that consolidates several functions found in previous versions of Photoshop and allows you to perform color replacement tasks on your image in a single step. This week we'll take a look at the tool, its options and some techniques for making it work for your particular colorization project.

Every once in a while, some of us are called upon to perform a task so heinous, so unmentionable, so undeniably hideous that the very thought of it is generally enough to send even the atheists amongst us fleeing to the nearest place of worship to pray for our very souls. The task, of course, is to somehow make the average, ordinary screen capture somehow look like the most exciting bit of animation that has ever existed. But never fear. Here's one way to dress it all up, with Photoshop and After Effects as our instruments of salvation.

It used to be easy to copy your Photoshop filters into your After Effects plugins folder in order to use them on your animations. But with the new versions of Photoshop filters and After Effects 6, it's not an effective solution. Fortunately, After Effects 6 maintains an old trick that works just fine: the ability to export your animations so that you can work on them in Photoshop.

This week we go back to some Photoshop basics to explore Layer Styles for the creation of a metallic, molten inlaid effects. Why? Well, Layer Effects are non-destructive, so you can apply them to text, for example, without having to rasterize. And you can save your styles to create your own variations that you can easily recall later.

A few months ago I wrote an article on the repair of heavily damaged photos. From the responses I got to that article, it has come to my attention that there are some aspects I did not cover, and have thus received requests for further explanation. Recently I received an email from Lonny asking for advise on how to repair an old photo of his "little sister". With his permission, I will use this photo to demonstrate some approaches that can be taken when dealing with discolored, stained and heavily spotted photos. As she clearly means so much to him, we will do our best to bring back her smile.

Normally when you're trying to pull the detail out of excessively dark or light portions of your image, you'd head over to your curves or levels adjustments in Adobe Photoshop and tweak your image until you get something close to your desired result. But more and more I'm becoming convinced that a different technique is more appropriate, one involving multiple layers that not only produces better results in situations requiring drastic image surgery, but also faster results with less fine-tuning.

At some point you're going to run into a situation that requires you to create effects requiring multiple selections and apply these to multiple images. Maybe you want to break up a bunch of images into pieces for use in a collage. Maybe you want to create border effects on a range of images automatically. Maybe you want to create selection-based actions for generating title-safety guides. Whatever the reason, it's a horrifying prospect for the sheer volume of repetitive work. But the process can be automated in Adobe Photoshop using Actions.

If you're looking for tutorials on creating metallic effects in Adobe Photoshop, there's certainly no shortage on the Web. This is one of the reasons I've avoided doing these sorts of pieces in the past. However, I haven't seen any such articles that you can use for turning an ordinary photographic image into something resembling foil, leafing, stamped metal or other similar effects, which you might use to create the appearance of a gold charm, a coin or maybe the silver leafing on a wedding invitation. And so....

If you haven't already, you will at some point in your design career be forced to composite hair or fur into a project. The specific reason isn't important. But how are you going to do it? Use a plugin? Not any of the ones I've seen. Copy and paste hair from another image? Too much of a pain, what with the complex masking and color matching. So what will you do, paint the hair follicle by follicle? Absolutely. But it isn't anywhere near as time-consuming as it sounds. With the tools available in the Photoshop 7 Paint Engine, you can generate hair and fur with as much detail as you like in almost no time at all.

Sometimes I just get so pleased with myself. Take now, for example. I've been pondering the question of gradient masks in Photoshop for quite some time. There have always been ways to create them, to be sure. But my concern is always with editability: How, in other words, would I create a gradient mask that would be fully editable and work for any layer I'd care to apply it to without any tweaking whatsoever? Shuck my bones if I haven't found an answer.

There are times when you need to eliminate discoloration (blemishes, spots, stains, etc.) on your subject while maintaining detail. The Healing Brush in Adobe Photoshop 7 can help with this, but it's not the best solution in most cases, since it can insert fake details into the corrected area and therefore produce sloppy results. Here's an alternative to the Healing Brush that can be much more effective at both maintaining detail and eliminating spots.

It certainly can, and today we'll look at an easy way to create this effect on extruded text in Macromedia Freehand MX.

When last we visited switching to Combustion 2 from After Effects, I had just finished explaining how to bring all of your native Photoshop files into Combustion with almost as much flexibility as After Effects itself gives you. That's all fine and good and what-not, but you may be wondering just what the mass of charcoal and nonstandard (to Mac and Windows users, anyway) interface elements that make up the Combustion interface can even do now that you've managed to get footage into it. However, once you get past the obvious difference in appearances between the two programs, you'll find that learning the Combustion interface is more an extension of a language you already know rather than learning something new from scratch.

Well, for one thing, you might want to bring your composition into another application that doesn't support Photoshop layer effects, such as many nonlinear editing, compositing and motion graphics applications. For another, you might need to generate an alpha channel that takes into account a layer's style effects, such as a drop shadow or outer glow. Whatever the reason, here's a quick way to do it.

While early versions of the GIMP left much to be desired, not the least of which was the fact that it ran solely on various flavors of Unix, the GIMP has matured into--dare I say--a viable alternative to Photoshop.

Training materials are good for reference sometimes, but you're never going to learn the program thoroughly unless you learn how to find the right answers--more often the right questions--for yourself.

Customizing Page Sizes in Adobe Photoshop
http://photoshop.digitalmedianet.com/articles/viewarticle.jsp?id=12978     Date:    2002-09-18
Author: Dave Nagel    
When you create a new document in Adobe Photoshop, are you bothered that you can't simply open up a preset for an image format you commonly use? I mean, let's say you work almost exclusively with one particular image size--maybe a widescreen DV resolution or a custom size for laying out quarter-page magazine ads or some such. But every time you want to create a new document, you have to enter the dimensions and resolution manually. Here's a simple way to solve this problem.

In our varied and manifold compositing series on Adobe Photoshop, we've looked at water, atmosphere and lens effects, each with the goal of adding detail to images with a photographic quality. Today we start a new series on compositing light and kick it off with a tutorial on casting light onto an image as if the light were coming through a multi-paned or shuttered window or door.

If you are an animator or composite artist, you may have come across the problem a time or two. You need to map and image onto a surface or video layer, but the image was photographed in such a way that the perspective is all off. How can you easily correct the perspective without spending a lot of time doing it? Here?s an Adobe Photoshop Quick Tip that answers the question.

Last time we took a look at water effects in Adobe Photoshop, we created a deep, murky body of water. This week we take a look at an approach to creating a shallow water effect, one in which the body of water--or brook, as the case may be--is clear and shallow enough for us to distinguish features below the surface.

For resolution independent text, it's hard to beat the precision, depth and functionality of vector-based graphics packages like Adobe Illustrator or Macromedia Freehand. But for a lot of you, these types of programs might be a bit of overkill. Here's a quick and easy way to create scalable graphics with transparency for After Effects using just Adobe Photoshop.

Judging from the letters I receive, every single person in the world at one time or another needs to create an "olde tyme" photographic look in Adobe Photoshop. The most popular request seems to be creating a sepia-toned photo showing the effects of aging. While there was never any one look for sepia photographs--and certainly no one way for photographs to age--the are some generic characteristics of older photos that we can emulate in Photoshop.

Creating certain effects for text and objects can take quite a bit of time. When Adobe introduced Style Layer effects, I was intrigued at the possibility of defining my own artistic styles instead of trying to recreate an effect I did months earlier. In this tutorial, you can see three Style Layer effects that I created in Adobe Photoshop 7.0. There are samples of the effects so you can see what the final design will look like. Best of all, you can download the Style Layer and use it for your own creations.

You've created a graphic in Adobe Photoshop, and you want to bring it into your video editing or compositing package. Not a big deal, right? The problem is that you've used a Layer Style in Photoshop (such as Drop Shadow), and your alpha channel, upon import to your video editor, seems to clip the transparency. Where did the effect go, and what can you do about it? As the host of our Photoshop forum here at DMN, I encounter this question quite frequently. Rather than continue answering it every single time, I've decided to provide you with this quick tutorial.

Last time around, we examined ways to use Photoshop's Filter Factory to create a 3D effect.

Displacement maps can be used in Adobe Photoshop to add both depth and texture to an image. We previously offered up a set of displacement maps designed just to produce depth effects--a set of gradients used to create wavy effects. This time around, we have a set of maps designed to add a little bit of depth and a lot of texture to the image--in this case, a crumpled paper texture.

Displacement maps can be used to create a wide variety of 3D or quasi-3D effects in Adobe Photoshop. The basic idea is that the luminance values of one image are used to define the bending and warping of another image. So, for example, you can use displacement to create crumpled paper, billowing fabric and other types of illusions of depth.

I've had a surprising number of requests for a collection of watercolor-style brushes for Adobe Photoshop. But with the limitations of Photoshop's paint engine, that's a bit of a trick. Unlike programs like Corel Painter and Synthetik Studio Artist, Photoshop doesn't give you the ability to create anything that truly behaves like wet media with spreading, smearing and diffusing effects. Nevertheless, we can get part way there.

All right, you probably won't be painting the presidential portrait with these brushes, but you will have some good, old-fashioned, sloppy fun. Our latest collection of brushes for Adobe Photoshop (Nagel Series 39) is designed to emulate wet, messy and otherwise rough natural media tools--great for creating background textures or abstract compositions.

The last several Photoshop brush collections we've offered have all been practical collections--either recreations of natural media tools or brushes with specific purposes, such as those designed to generate hair and skin effects. This time around I wanted to break out of that and serve up some brushes that are a bit more generalized--brushes with heavy textures for generating artwork that doesn't necessarily resemble traditional media.

Applying filters to create sketch effects is all right sometimes. But there are the occasions when you want to do the actual work yourself, rather than relying on the software to do it for you. Unfortunately, there aren't all that many great choices for getting the job done in Adobe Photoshop. So I've decided to put together a new collection for Photoshop designed specifically for simulating the process of sketching with dry media.

It's possible in Photoshop to create highly detailed skin textures--both animal and human--using nothing more than custom brushes. We've provided a number of these types of brushes in the past. But when you combine custom brushes with a few simple tricks with layer styles, you can create surfaces that have both detail and depth, making it possible to simulate, for example, the appearance of scales or bumpy surfaces. Our collection of brushes for Photoshop this time around is geared toward this approach.

Skin textures are among the most difficult to create when you're working with 3D figures. Unless you have access to one of the more advanced texture creation programs (such as Maxon's BodyPaint 3D) or are satisfied using textures created by others, you don't have a whole lot of options. Fortunately Photoshop's painting tools will allow you--with a bit of effect--to generate skin-like textures, whether you're working with tiles or UV maps. You just need the right set of brushes.

Several graphics programs out there create "bristling" effects with their brushes by taking any given nib and simply stretching it over the length of a path. This has its drawbacks though, as the quality of the bristle is in direct proportion to the length of the path. In Photoshop, though, you can use bristle brushes that maintain a constant bristle quality regardless of the length of the stroke, but whose shapes and other characteristics can vary over the course of a stoke through various parameters. Here we present a collection of 15 such brushes for Adobe Photoshop CS.

One of the great things about the paint engine in Adobe Photoshop is its ability to alleviate repetitive drawing tasks while allowing you to keep control of the drawing process. Most of our recent brush collections for Photoshop have been designed to take advantage of this capability by allowing you to paint textures and effects quickly into your image so you don't have to paint elements pixel by pixel or rely on plugins to take care of you effects for you. This week we have another collection along those lines, this one geared toward elements of nature.

I get asked all the time how to create bevels in Adobe Illustrator. There are two answers for this: use the 3D filter, in which case you're limited to flat surfaces, or fudge it by combining multiple instances of your graphic, in which case you're stuck spending too much time on a simple effect that's not easily repeatable. So I've decided to dip into my shallow reservoir of programming knowledge to present you with a few preset bevel filters that will hopefully get you through some simple tasks that require resolution-independent, Photoshop-style bevels.

For years the process of creating hair and fur in Adobe Photoshop has been a tremendous labor. But the advent of the Photoshop 7 Paint Engine has made this process almost simple.

Hence this week's free download, featuring a range of brushes for generating hair and fur effects.

I've posted an awful lot of bristle-style brushes for just about every program out there, but never for Adobe Photoshop. The main reason for this is that Photoshop doesn't support stretch-style brushes, so it's difficult to give a bristly look to a brush whose texture is maintained with a heavy application of color. And so I set out to find a way around this. The result is this week's free download, a collection of 25 textured brushes that will hopefully satisfy your craving for natural media emulation.
