Posted on: March 5th, 2010 0

I may be the last person on the planet to discover the awesome power of Photo Merge. It’s something I never really felt the need to explore, until the other day when I wanted to composite several images shot from the Empire State Building into a panoramic image. I planned on spending hours doing this, and wound up finishing the entire project in about 2 minutes!

Selections Using Vector Tools

Posted on: March 9th, 2009 0

This week I’m gonna REALLY explain the Pen Tool, plus show the difference between vector-based tools and pixel-based tools. I feel that my previous post, “Basic Photoshop Tools”, didn’t really do the job in explaining vectors and the Pen Tool. Further, a portion of what I said regarding converting from a Path to a Selection was simply WRONG! If you got confused in that particular area this screencast will clear it all up, plus you’ll have a much better understanding of how vectors work in Photoshop.
