  • Making the Most of Your Images

    by Kimmit | 11th of May, 2009

    A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to capture some pretty decent shots of seagulls. Nothing earth shattering but I liked them. I played around with the second one in PhotoShop because I liked the fact that the bird was looking right at you and the pose was very... More
  • Photo without post-processing

    by Aginger | 27th of April, 2009

    Have you ever submitted a photo for stock site without any modification? Without hard times spending with Photoshop or noise reduction software? Every time I push the button of my cam, I dreamed about that I can catch the moment, I can show, what I see at that moment.... More
  • Tips & Tricks to create Panorama Images

    by Creativei | 9th of April, 2009

    Panoramas are becoming easier to accomplish these days thanks to Adobe photoshop. This software easily allows digital photographers to stitch together separate photos taken in succession. I developed this interest during one of the Adobe Max session in Barcelona, Spain. (... More
  • Useful tips for HDR photography

    by Summerrain | 29th of March, 2009

    I am in no way a HDR expert, not even a photography expert. But I have had some very useful discoveries and lessons help me create some great photos and I thought I would share some:) 1, Multiple exposures. This one sounds very obvious of course. But you can create... More
  • Buildings Are One Of My Favorite Subjects

    by Aughty | 22nd of March, 2009

    Growing up as a kid in the big city, I always wanted to build tall buildings. I took drafting in high school and was going to go to college and become an engineer or architect (actually graduated with a BA in film and video). I never followed that dream, but... More
  • A touch of surrealism

    by Summerrain | 13th of March, 2009

    There's millions of ways to add a little surrealism to your pictures. I have found that adding just a hint of it can work wonders on just about any photo. I'm going to mention some of my favorite ways to do it. You have to experiment to find the things that work the best... More

  • Moody pictures, adding some drama

    by Summerrain | 15th of February, 2009

    Anything can be made into a moody picture. Even a bright summer day. It's of course easier if your picture already has some natural moody elements such as stormy skies, windy landscape, or impressive light. There's tons of ways to both enhance and create a moody scene in... More
  • What do you use as a white background?

    by Awizard | 12th of February, 2009

    I heard several versions: just any white floor, paper, or a piece of textile. In any case, there are pros and cons. Some of them I use personally. Floor: blinks can appear as a result of a lamp reflection. On the other hand, there will be no shadows caused by any creases.... More
  • Color above the shadows

    by Mildegard | 9th of February, 2009

    I don't know if it will be news to you, but want to share anyway. While drawing in Photoshop I always preferred placing color first and adding shadows, midtones and highlights next. One friend gave me an idea to try it vise versa. Place all shadows and highlights, he said,... More
  • all done by photoshop!

    by Annieyek | 5th of February, 2009

    I really like photoshop. I learned it by myself. At the begining, I thought it only can used for photo editing like changing photo level, contrast, color.. things like that. But, this is also a powerful drawing software.It can come out an illustration like below: Every... More
  • Better pictures- quick

    by Summerrain | 17th of January, 2009

    1. Balance the light. Uneven lights and shadows can make a good photo look "unfinished" and distract the eye from the actual subject and meaning. I almost always balance my picture using shadows at the edges and the majority of the light on and around the main focus of... More

    by Summerrain | 6th of January, 2009

  • PhotoPlus!

    by Eclecticelegance | 5th of January, 2009

    I have been using PhotoPlus software to edit my photos that I upload, and have really liked it! It is a TON cheaper than Photoshop, and probably quite a bit simpler to use, which is good for me because I am a newbie. :) The version 6 download is free, and the version... More
  • Realistic manipulations

    by Summerrain | 26th of December, 2008

    Having manipulated photos for quite some time now I have picked up a few tips and decided to make a "tutorial" about the most important steps of creating realistic creations. Imagine having a picture of a person that you want to move to a different background. If you simply... More

    by Billysiew | 22nd of December, 2008

    Just online for less than 2 weeks, now already got 7 downloads with only 21 views. Originally, there was no light. I added the lighting effect by using photoshop. Thanks for powerful photoshop software! See Article

    by Summerrain | 21st of December, 2008

    One very lovely effect that I sometimes like to use to enhance certain pictures, such as romantic pictures and children portraits, are different dreamy effects. There's more than one way to achieve this and there's also many different ways to create a dreamy mood. I'm going... More

  • Using photoshop with care

    by Summerrain | 17th of December, 2008

    I know when I first got photoshop I was so excited to use it that many times I was guilty of using it a bit too heavily. While a lot of effects look new and awesome they don't always fit well with every picture. In many cases we want to preserve realism in our art, that is... More
