Photoshop :: Changing Colors Of Rasterized Anti-aliased Text

Jun 9, 2009

I have a set of images of complex text that has already been rasterized into pixels. My client would like the images transformed with a different background color and different foreground (text) color.

Just replacing the 2 colors of course does not preserve the antialiasing which provides the smoothness. And when I try hand-editing the aliased pixels it takes forever and always looks pretty bad.

Ideally there would be a way to transform the color schema globally so that the 2 foreground and background colors are changed as directed, and all "intermediate" antialias pixels adjust "accordingly". Does such a transformation exist -- can you specify a color transformation that adjusts 2 colors at once?

Or is there a more painstaking process of masks and such? I've tried several versions with masks, selects, feathering etc. but haven't found anything yet that gives professional antialias quality to the final recolored result.

Photoshop :: Changing Rasterized Outline Colors / Strokes (images Inside)

Jan 31, 2013

I was wondering if there was a graceful way to change a thick stroke or outline in PS CS6? Normally I would be lazy and just use the paint bucket tool, but since this is for a higher profile client than I am used to, and it is a for print project (I normally do web projects) the quality is just not good enough. The lines I want to change are the yellow outlines of the yellow hand in the following logo:
 
Currently, the best approach I can think of is going back into AI and changing the outlines and strokes there, however that is going to be a lot of work because of the way in which different objects overlay each other means a lot of slicing, cutting, and moving things around. Is there an easier way to do this in PS?

Photoshop :: Resizing Rasterized Text

Sep 30, 2005

I'm fairly new to PS and I wonder if someone could explain this behavior:

I started out with black vector text and a logo in Illustrator. I rasterized it and saved it as an EPS. I opened the EPS in PS 7, specifying dpi of 600 with anti-alias checked. (I'm not quite sure why it then rasterized a file that was already rasterized, but that's another question).

On my screen, it looks great! I zoomed in close and the edges are nice and smooth. However, when I try to resize it to be smaller so I can use it on the web, it falls apart. The edges become very jagged and when I do Save to Web and put it on a web page, it is very fuzzy.

I've resized color images before for the web without this fuzziness. Am I getting this effect because it is black and white? I thought trying to resize it to be a bigger image results in poorer quality, not resizing it to be smaller.

Is there some technique I'm missing?

Photoshop :: Changing Opacity In Selection On Layer Without Changing Entire Layer

Aug 21, 2013

I've been using Photoshop CS2 for several years to enhance my photographs, but just now have encountered something simple I cannot find out how to do.   I have on the background layer a picture of a room interior with the exposure set mostly for the open window, but the rest of the room is very dark.  On the only other layer, the upper one, I have the same shot exposed correctly for the room, which overexposes the window area.  The upper and lower layers are perfectly superimposed, and the upper layer is at 100% opacity. 

I have selected the window on the upper layer and want to change the selected area's opacity to blend properly with the window on the bottom layer without changing opacity of the rest of the layer.  No matter what I do, changing opacity seems to affect only the entire layer, and I haven't figured out how to isolate the selected area for the opacity change.
 
I can cut the selection to reveal the darker window on the bottom layer, but this doesn't give me the flexibility I need to balance the two exposures. An opacity change would be ideal.

Photoshop :: Rasterized File

Aug 8, 2008

When I open my eps filel, which is a business card created by an outside designer, I get a checkered card and I am unable to see anything (it says rasterized generic eps format). I can open other documents, but not this one.

What can I do to see it correctly? If I hit cancel, the screen goes blank and no card shows; if I say okay, it shows checkered.

Photoshop :: Copying Text From Outside Text Editor And Pasting Into CS5 Text Layer?

May 20, 2012

trying to copy txt from an outside text editor and pasting them into an open, editable text layer in my workspace.  The problem is that I can COPY the text fine, but when I click over to PS to paste it into the open editable text layer it either pastes the previous text from my clipboard OR it won't paste anything at all.  I can then go into any other text field on a browser, spreadsheet document, a different text editor, notepad, etc and successfully paste the proper batch of text I wanted to paste into PS.  Sometimes I have some rather large files open 50+megs when I notice this happen.  I have to save my work and close out entirely of PS and then open it again before I can begin editing my original document again and successfully paste the text into the open editable text layer.  This may last for a few COPY/PASTE sessions of additional text in additional text layers, but then begins displaying the symptoms I described above.
 
I am on Win7 on an AlienWare M17XR3 laptop with 16G RAM and AMD Radeon HD 6900M Series display adapter.I assume it's either in my PS performance settings which I have PS using 10413MB RAM and has over 350G scratch disk space.  If it's not that I guess my laptop system performance settings which I've never tinkered with since I purchased it.

Photoshop :: One Layer Style Changing All The Other

Apr 23, 2009

When I am applying a style to one layer in CS2, and lets say I give it a drop shadow that is different (say it's at 110degrees rather than 90degrees) compared with the other drop shadows in my other layers, the curent layer style will change all the other layer styles across the board. I've looked all over for some setting to change so each individual layer keeps its own style but I can't seem to find this. I want each layer to have its own style attribute and not change the rest, how do I correct this?
