In past articles I’ve written about free Lightroom presets, photoshop actions and photoshop brushes. Recently, I’ve stumbled across some more very nice photoshop brushes and since I’m currently doing a new free photoshop training series, Photoshop For Photographers, I thought it would be of great use to everybody if I keep scouring the internet for free, useful, photoshop tools.

I’ll be making a video soon on how to load brushes into Photoshop. Until than, you can watch this video which is a quick demo on how to load a brush.

Following are 10 free photoshop brushes

Learn Lightroom 5 – Part 21: Photorealistic HDR (32 Bit)

by Anthony Morganti

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

If you’re one of those people that do not like the typical HDR effect, this video is for you. In this video we take a 7 shot exposure spread of a scene and do some minor tweaks in Lightroom after which we bring it over to Photoshop to create a 32 bit HDR image. This process produces a huge file containing a ton of picture information without the typical HDR “Look” that turns so many people off. Because this file contains so much information, when we bring it back into Lightroom, our processing produces a magnificent image.

Video: How To Add The Moon To A Photo Using Photoshop

by Anthony Morganti

Well, for my first video I thought I’d try something relatively easy as I learn and get comfortable with the recording process. Like many people, I hate hearing my own voice! Hopefully I grow on me.

In this video I demonstrate how you can add the moon to an existing moonless shot using Photoshop CS6. My speech awkwardness aside, it’s a relatively easy process.

In future videos I’ll show the same thing using Adobe Elements 11 and Pixelmator — two programs that are low cost alternatives to Photoshop.

Until then, I hope you enjoy this video. Feel free to comment on how I can make the videos better.
