Manip Academy 13: How to make glowing things Hello everybody!Manip Academy 13: How to make glowing things1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Today I'm going to show you how to make glowing things. Light is very important in making photomanipulations, so techniques you will know will be useful.
Make base for your glow
Start from making base at new layer, change blending mode to Color dodge. You can use shape brush (here, dragonflies or stars or anything), or normal soft round brush. Then, duplicate it and change blending mode to Linear dodge (Add). After, for better effect draw with big soft round brush dot over your thing and use Color dodge blending mode. You can duplicate layer with glow or layer with glow and base for better effect.
It's important to make good lightning with glowing things. Light isn't strong, but always light up space around.
Also, you can add some particles around glowing things. Just draw basic shape and change blending options, as is shown. Use the natural color spectrum. Base should be bri
Manip Academy 6 : How to adjust a fire's colorThis trick will help you blend a fire stock to fit the colors and the atmosphere of your photomanipulation.Manip Academy 6 : How to adjust a fire's color1 year ago in Personal More Like This
To do so, we are going to use Alpha Channels and Adjustment Layers.
To understand this tip you should already know how to create layers and how to use masks.
The first step will be to remove the black background that comes with most fire stocks you will find.
Some of you may already know you can apply blending modes to your layer to make that black background disappear.
It's the easiest and fastest way to blend a fire... but with this technique, you won't be able to modify your fire's aspect (or your background will re-appear) ! So your result won't always look very realistic.
That's why I'll tell you how to cut (softly) that black background, using the Alpha Channels :
First, display your fire stock layer only (so the rest of your image won't bother you) and search for your "Channels" window (in Photoshop CS6, there is a "Channel" tab right next to your "Layers" tab).
Photography Lesson Number 2The general consensus from the first lesson was the following -Photography Lesson Number 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
a) my photography lessons are fucking awesome, and
b) the next one should be about star photography
So, here it is....
Star light, star bright,
The first star I……don’t see tonight because I left the fucking lens cap on.
People love those twinkly little dead planets in the sky, don’t they? You’re one of those people, aren’t you? You want to know how to take photos of them to show all your friends, don’t you? Except they don’t want to see your photos because they are shite. Let me tell you how to keep your friends…
First things first. Look up. Can you see stars? No? Then go someplace else.
People with normal IQ’s don’t need to hear this but….you have to be able to see them to photograph them so urban areas are balls because of the shitty orange glow light pollution from the street lamps. So go join up with the rednecks i

Turning Day into NightHello everyone and welcome back to another Manip Academy tutorial!Turning Day into Night1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to take an image that was shot during the day, and make it look like it was shot at night. There are a couple ways of that you can achieve this look, but I will just be showing you one way that I most commonly use. We will be using various adjustment layers and blending techniques during this process. Now remind you, every piece will turn out differently, what I am showing you is just a starting point for your image. So keep playing around with the adjustment layers to achieve the effect that your looking for. Let's start out with the stock image:
My Barn Is My Kastl by Burtn
First thing you want to do is make sure to duplicate the layer. I always duplicate whatever images I work with and create a folder called "Original Stocks
Ps tips #4Having 15 min of peace at home, so today quick tip how to make objects look goldenPs tips #44 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Make a copy of object to new layer, put it into new folder, hide the original. Usually I desaturate it, but it makes no difference to be honest
2. Create new gradient like mine you can see before. I picked colours from photos of gold. Don't forget to save it!
3. Create new adjustment layer "gradient map", use gradient you've made. Now image looks like this:
4. Create new adjusment layer "curves" UNDER the gradient map layer, and enhance contrast. Settings for every image are different!!!
5. Copy both adjustment layers, check reverse in gradient map, group these layers, hide the group under black mask, then make visible some areas that looks better in reverse.

Photomanip: Working with TexturesWelcome!Photomanip: Working with Textures3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures are a critical part of so many photomanipulations, but they're not as easy to use as they appear. Below are some great examples of photomanipulations that, in my opinion, demonstrate excellent use of textures:
The goal of this article . . .
. . . is to serve as a resource for those of us who enjoy having textures be a predominant part of our photomanipulations and mixed media work so we can learn to use textures properly. Texture misuse or abuse can ruin an entire photomanipulation that otherwise might have been good. No matter how good we are at something, we can always grow to be better.

We have decided our theme will be Creativity is Cool
This contest is somewhat different: We will provide you with different stock images: Four of people, four of interior shots, four of outdoor/landscape images and four 'unusual or 'difficult' images. Now your mission is to choose one (or more) of those and get as creative with it as possible! You can use any part of the stock images in any way you like--so long as it's recognizable as having come from the image. Imagine all the different possibles!
Here pure skill is not as important- A perfect portrait might get not as much recognition as a really creative piece with the same stock base.
