Since CS4 it’s possible to extend Photoshop with so called panels. Panels are palettes that you can easily create yourself. Based on Flash, they give you numerous options that go far beyond actions and even scripts, such as sending email directly from Photoshop, blog infos, watermark, lorem ipsum, or grid generators.

Photoshop allows you to save several variations of a composition in the same file by using so-called layer comps. This setting remembers the position, opacity, blending mode and style of a layer. A separate layer comps window gives you easy control.

In photography, but also in web design and other areas, grunge describes a certain image style where smudges, scratches and noise are the desired objective. Old and used is a very welcome look. It’s very easy to do a grungy frame in Photoshop. This frame can naturally be varied and refined according to your taste.

The internet holds numerous articles and workshops about optimizing and restoring old photographic material. But it is far more exciting and creative to turn fresh photos from your digital camera into old and aged pictures. A little noise and coloration are not enough, though. You will also need some vignetting, scratches and a realistic base.

You might have asked yourself now and then „How do I make a soft skin without destroying the pores?“. In this workshop I’ll show you how this kind of touch-up works, and how you can conserve the pores. This goes from basic retouch up to powdering the skin.

Not all White is created equal. If you ever forgot to adjust the white balance during shooting, you’ll know what we are talking about. But even those images can be saved. Photoshop and Camera Raw offer a number of corrections in post. This will help you get rid of any cast.

Extracting fine hair detail from a background is one of the most tricky jobs in Photoshop. A professional way to do it takes you to the channel palette, where you prepare a mask that can be loaded as a selection.

A mixture of illustration and photo material is a current trend in which the stripe look is used quite frequently. Usually people will direct you towards custom brushes and shapes, but actually Photoshop itself offers a number of options to generate stripes. For that we apply little used filters like „Wave“.

You can create stars, gas clouds and the bright band of the Milky Way in Photoshop, using nothing but a few filter combinations. The starry sky displayed here might be a little over the top, but a photorealistic result was never the objective – we wanted a fantasy product instead.

Grunge doesn’t only refer to a style of music, it’s also a stylistic direction in image processing with Photoshop, where the image material is shown as old and dirty. Since the program itself produces rather clean results, we need textures to give us the grime we desire. These require only a few steps to be adjusted to the grunge look.
