My Third Photoshop Action Bundle – YAY!

This bundle consists of two different Photoshop Actions – One will give a nice pencil drawing effect and the other gives a great retro vintage look to your images.

Both Actions works great on Photoshop CS5 and above – CS5, CS6, CC, CC2014 etc.

The Pencil Effect works great with Elements 11, 12 and 13 but unfortunately, the retro vintage look doesn’t work with Elements at all.

The Action is distributed as “Donationware”

Photoshop For Photographers – Episode 12: Swap a Sky – Redux

by Anthony Morganti

If you’re reading this in your email, click on the headline to see the video.

In Episode 10 I demonstrated how to swap a sky utilizing a Selection. Well, what if your image is too complex to get a good selection? What do you do? You watch this! Episode 12 of Photoshop For Photographers where I show how it’s done.

Doing the swap as shown in this video only works if the only blue in your image is the sky. It won’t work as well if you have blue water, flowers or anything else blue besides the sky.

Photoshop For Photographers – Episode 10: Swapping a Sky

by Anthony Morganti

If you’re reading this in your email, click on the headline to see the video.

In this Episode of Photoshop For Photographers I demonstrate how to swap out a sky from one image to another. In previous episodes we talked about Layer Masks and Blending Modes and we “Swapped” a sky or two to demonstrate those features but actually, what I showed than isn’t the most effective way to do this technique. In this video, I show you the best way to swap out a sky and it’s easier than you might think!

Photoshop For Photographers – Episode 8: Smart Objects

by Anthony Morganti

If you’re reading this in your email, click here for the video.

In this episode of Photoshop For Photographers, I introduce you to Smart Objects. Smart Objects are very similar to layers but, unlike layers, they allow you to preform edits that normally are destructive in nature, non-destructively.

Photoshop For Photographers – Episode 7: Compositing

by Anthony Morganti

If you’re reading this in your email, click here for the video.

In this episode, we do a relatively simple composite taking the image of a model in a bathing suit and placing her in a beach scene. A lot of topics are covered including selections, refining edge, defringing, adjustment layers, dodging and burning.

*****Normally I give the images away so that you can practice at home but for this episode I cannot. I am not a model photographer so I had to purchase the image of the bikini model from Dreamstime — a stock image site. The image isn’t mine to give away so I hope you all understand.*****
