Photoshop :: Pesky Backgrounds

Jan 24, 2006

What options do I have to remove 'busy' backgrounds from photographs?

Many of my pictures are taken at home and I want to focus upon the wife and kids, not the sofa or curtains.

I've tried the magic wand and select similar and I've tried the magnetic lasoo - whilst both are good, they're not quite there.

Photoshop :: Pesky Halftone Dots

May 1, 2004

I have just aquired a copy of my great grandmother, unfortunatly it came from a newspaper or a magazine. However I would like to remove the halftoning and then later colorize it. The latter should be no problem as I've done tht before, but those pesky halftones have me stumped. I have tried using gaussian blur and unsharp mask but it looks a bit iffy if you know what I mean.

Lightroom :: Pesky Default Publish Folder

Feb 17, 2013

How do I delete that pesky default publish folder that is created when I make an new hard drive publish service?I don't want the standard publish folder because I only need several smart publish folders.

The italicized Untitled Export publish folder is the one in question.There doesn't seem to be an option to delete the folder when I right click on it. If I right click on any other publish folder, there is an option to delete the folder.

Illustrator :: Hide / Remove Pesky Negative Space Voids

May 24, 2012

We've all seen this:
Adding strokes to an object, often text (in this case outlined/expanded text), and there develops little unsightly "negative space shapes".
The white stroke has an Offset Path added to it.
How to dynamically rid an object of these? Tried drawing little paths over them, grouping them with the compound text path and using Pathfinder > Add effect . . . but nope.

The workarounds are obvious -

1) Expand everything, delete the unwanted bits.  
2) Draw solid paths over the negative spaces that match the bg, like the pic below:

Photoshop :: How To Use Texture Backgrounds

Oct 4, 2012

I'm working on a design that seems a bit bland so I thought about adding some texture to the background, though I dont want it to interfere with the foreground elements like text, and images.
1. I can reduce the transparency, what else might I do? Fade it out?
2. Just curious to hear some examples of when you might use a texture for a background of an image? Do you only do it for very specific reasons?.

Photoshop :: Professional Backgrounds?

Mar 26, 2008

Has anyone found a supplier of professional backgrounds that can be used in conjunction with wedding photography images.?

I'm looking for pale soft images with no real pattern that can be used as a layer above a photograph to give that dreamy but slightly coloured look.

I believe there are suppliers that produce these backgrounds but can't find what I want by searching. See the background applied to the left page in pdf attached.

Photoshop :: Transparent Backgrounds!

Jul 6, 2008

So everytime I open a new document it's not a transparent background. Ill even start a new document as transparent and RGB. Still a white background when it is created. So I tried adding an image. Deleted the first layer. Still nothing. So I used a magic wand, deleted the background. Still white.

I remember having this problem before and my professor told me what it was. But I forget what she said, it was over a year ago. Anyone have any ideas?

Photoshop :: Transparent Backgrounds

make logos with transparent backgrounds, so that when they are placed in a DTP program (PageMaker) they do not have a white box around them, I have been using PhotoShops transparent export functions but inevitably this leave the image looking bitmapped, especially with text, or just plain bad. Is there anyway one can make logos with transparent backgrounds and have them look good?

Photoshop :: Getting Backgrounds / Textures And Templates For CS6?

Feb 20, 2013

good web sites to download royalty free backgrounds, templates, textures, etc. for Photoshop.  I'm willing to pay a small annual fee to join the site, but of course free is always good too. I'm looking more for a site that has Photoshop or other design applications in mind.
I've found a couple of sites through Google, but they seem old and not updated as often (they still mention compatibility with CS4 and 5).

Photoshop :: Adjusting Color Backgrounds

Jan 8, 2013

Adjusting color backgrounds. I have a large number of images of fly-fishing flies which were photographed on not-quite-solid backgrounds of slightly differing colors. I'd like to efficiently adjust the backgrounds so they all appear roughly the same without affecting the flies themselves. The flies are hard to select because of their feathery, hair-like edges, and the backgrounds are hard to select because they have slight gradations of almost-solid colors.

Photoshop :: Laptop Multiple Backgrounds

Jul 15, 2012

I want to throw together a few Sonic pictures that will alternate every so often for the background of my laptop. The first attached picture of sonic (Blue hedgehog) is what I currently have. I like the simple style of the picture.

How to keep the background fully black. Change the colors of the 'lasers' to a color suitable for the other charters and then replace sonic for that character in a similar size?

For example.

Red lasers + Knuckles the echidna
Orange lasers + Tails the fox
Grey/red + Shadow the hedgehog
White + Silver the hedgehog

If you see where I'm going with this. I don't want the character pictures to look cartoony I want the pictures created to be as similar to the original sonic picture as possible and I'll attach some pictures of the other charters to show you who they are and the kind of thing I want.

Also If you look at the original sonic picture his hands and feet look a tiny bit blurred. If the picture looks like it contains movement could you add slight blur to emphasize that.

4 pictures altogether if allowed. Similar to the sonic one. Different colored laser. then picture of the other characters replacing sonic.
