Rose The One – The sexy pink tutorial

The idea for this image came one day during the lunch. I had some flesh and while eating I put the bones on the table and start to play with and so I came to the idea to build a bone house, but at that time I had not enough bones so I start to collect all the bones that left after lunch for some time, until I had enough to build my house. For that I arranged the bones in the way I need and shot some Photographs of the arrangements and for the other components, some grass in front of my house, some trees in a shop, the sky and the smoke from a factory. This Tutorial was made on a PC, with Photoshop 7 but it can be done also with CS. If you are on a Mac use Cmd instead of Ctrl and Opt instead of Alt. For the shortcuts.

Basic exposure blending in Photoshop

One problem you can encounter in photography is lack of dynamic range. The dynamic range is the range of light levels that can be seen from black to white. You will often find that while a photo has well exposed shadows and mid-tones, the light parts of the image are far to light or even blown out (pure white). On the other hand you may have exposed for the highlights in which case the shadows will look overly dark and underexposed.

Reducing Wrinkles With The Healing Brush In Photoshop

In this tutorial, we’ll look at the Healing Brush, by far the best photo retouching tool in all of Photoshop, and how we can use it to easily reduce distracting skin wrinkles in an image. Notice how I said “reduce”, not “remove” wrinkles. One of the most common retouching mistakes is to completely remove the wrinkles from a person’s face, smoothing the skin out so completely that a person in their 40′s, 50′s, 60′s or later looks like they’ve barely aged a day since they were a teenager. That may sound flattering, and if you’re doing work for a high end fashion magazine, it may well be the result you want. But for those of us who live in reality, wrinkles are a natural sign of aging, life experience and the wisdom that comes with it, not something to be shunned and removed through heavy-handed use of Photoshop. As the saying goes, just because you can doesn’t mean you should.

How I made up Batista as Phantom

The first comics I read was ‘Rani Shiba’r Kantha-har’ means ‘Necklace of Queen Shiba’ in Bengali. I was 4 years then, and from that time I am the greatest fan of Phantom. Actually I get to know Phantom as Phantom later – in Bengali he is called ‘Vetal’ (the name of the ghost from the Indian mythology ‘Vikram and Vetal’) for the translated comics published by ‘Indrajaal Comics’ or ‘Aranyadev’ (The god of the jungle) for ‘Ananda Publishers’

These tow Bengali names were given by two famous Bengali writes Nirendranath Chakraborty and Lila Majumdar.

Photoshop CS5 New Features – Content-Aware Fill

In a previous tutorial, we looked at Photoshop CS5′s upgraded Spot Healing Brush with its brand new Content-Aware Healingoption that lets Photoshop examine the actual contents of your image as it tries to figure out the best way to remove or repair the damaged or unwanted area you’ve clicked on. This time, we look at another new feature in Photoshop CS5 – Content-Aware Fill. It’s no coincidence that both of these new features share similar names, since they do pretty much the same thing. The main difference is in how we use them.

Removing Skin Blemishes With The Spot Healing Brush

In this Photoshop tutorial, we’ll look at one of the most amazing and time saving photo retouching tools available, the Spot Healing Brush, the first of three image “healing” tools in Photoshop. The Spot Healing Brush was first introduced in Photoshop CS2 and, like the other two healing tools (the standard Healing Brush and the Patch Tool), it’s essentially a texture replacement tool, meaning that it tries to create a seamless repair by replacing damaged or unwanted texture from one area in an image with good texture from another area, without changing the problem area’s original color or brightness values.
