New: Here are the details of the two Photoshop tips presented by Ronnie:

Dodging and Burning

1.Open an image in photoshop

2.Create a new empty layer ( layers palette)

3.Edit > Fill > 50% gray.

4. Mode > Overlay or Soft light

  (This can be made into an Action)

  Instead of using the dodge or burn tool with this method we use

  the brush tool at the same time making black and white as the

  foreground and background colours.

5.Choose a suitable size soft edge brush and lower the opacity

  to about 10 -15%.

6.Painting with black as foreground colour darkens the image.

7.Painting with white as foreground colour lightens the image.

The beauty of using this method is not only  you are not working on   the original image, but you  can also undo at any time any ‘errors’ you have made, by painting with the other colour i.e. to undo over ‘burning’ with black you can retrieve the situation by painting with white.

 

New: ACTIONS:
Actions in Photoshop

There are many tasks you perform in photoshop which are repetative and tme consuming. Using the Actions panel ( see under Windows > Actions) when an image is open in photoshop, you can  record steps which have been taken to create the action by simply clicking a button (play).These actions come as default with photoshop.

Creating your own Actions

1.Open an image in photoshop

2.Windows > Actions

3.Create a new action set – click on 3rd button from right at bottom of panel

                                                 Name- My actions – OK

4.Create new action – click on 2nd button from right at bottom of panel

                                        Name – Name the action you are recording

                                                      A red triangle indicates this.

5.Procede to process the imge step by step – you will see each step recorded in         panel.  

6.When finished press the stop button –the square on the far left.   

Applying the Action to an image 

1. Open image in photoshop

2. Windows > Actions – to open actions panel

3.Click on action required and press play button (triangle)

4.Close panel when finished.
