Tutorial:  Image Inside Text with a Twist from How to Create BADA$$ Effects in Photoshop

This image shows how a reasonable, but not great image can be turned into something rather effective. In this case the final image could be easily a basis for a motocross event poster. Using layer styles, brushes and layer masks the blue splatter behind the main image is quickly created.

Transparent Shirt effect

Torn Paper Portrait

Software: Photoshop CC

Tutorial:  See Through Clothes Effect – Tutorials Junction

This image is a bit misleading – to get this image done the main transparent cloth effect is rather easy to do, but the little touches that makes it really works took about half of the production time. As it can be guessed making and blending modes does most of the heavy lifting. It is colour curves and displacement layers that make the final image work.

Baseball Card – Colourization

Baseball Card - Retro Images

Software: Photoshop CC

Tutorial:  Vintage Baseball Card in Photoshop – WebpageFX

This image had a lot of cool things: colourize the image of Joe DiMaggio, use of layer styles and blending modes to make the image of Joe and Yankee Stadium seem more like an illustration, use of layer styles to “age” the final card design.

The coolest part was the colourization of the image of Joe DiMaggio. It was a bit of a surprise to me when I realized that I had rarely done a colourization of black and white images. I had done lots of changing the colour of an item in a colour photo.

Finally this image was fun to create.

Strive To Be Your Best – Text and Image

Strive To Be Your Best - Text and Image

Software: Photoshop CC

Tutorial:  Image Inside Text with a Twist from How to Create BADA$$ Effects in Photoshop

I saw this Book for sale for 40% off – How could I resist?

I found this image quick and easy to do – but there a few tips in the tutorial I would have missed if I had tried to do this image without the tutorial. So it was educational.

As seen on some of my other postings, I love doing space based images. So when Blue Lighting posted a tutorial on creating an eclipse image, I guess I could not say no.

Tattoo stye bird

tatoo-bird

Software: Adobe Illustrator CC

Tutorial: Spoon Graphics Blog

Once again, I have chosen an image that was created in Adobe Illustrator, even though my natural instinct would be to create the outline in Illustrator and do the texture in Photoshop. One of the most interesting parts of the image is the texture is masked to the bird shape. Masking in Photoshop is second nature to me, but until this tutorial I had never done it in Illustrator. In fact, although I knew it was possible to do masking in Illustrator, I was not 100% sure how to do it. I guess that is there important part of a tutorial, learning new techniques.

Haunted House

Haunted House

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS CC

Tutorial: www.photoshoptutorials.ws

Halloween is over for 2014 (actually Christmas and New Year’s are also over), but a haunted house image never truly goes out of style (except for birthday and Christmas cards).

This image was a fun exercise in image editing and layer styles and adjustment layers.
