The Tutorial Text (RTF for Word or WordPad preferably) - [link]
From the RTF - My goal here is to create a simple, straightforward way of teaching Photoshop's Pen tool. It is really really easy once you learn the basics and you will probably never need another tutorial again if this one is good enough at explaining it.
Which I hope it will be.
As you can see the preview is also of a sketch I've never had on the net before so I guess that adds a bit to it.
To help make this tutorial better, present any questions/ inadequacies you may have to me via note or MSN (as provided on my homepage and in the text) and if this works I may move onto other quick-ish tutorials on effective coloring e.t.c.
i think i removed original file, but i dont. yay!!! i still have PSD file. to show you how to edit colors.
+i use turquoise color paper as background then put a glass of soda in front of it. [paper>glass>light and camera] +to brighten an object,use a little help from flashlight [i use christmas light instead ahaha! i dont have any flashlight and i dont prefer camera's flash]
note:: *gradient map tool maybe not necessery, you can use other tool you want. *change color tone of gradient or belending mode can make photo more interesting as well.
Today I discovered a Photoshop technique that is oddly (but aptly) called "Freaky Detail". The technique brings out additional detail in your photos by using the vivid light blend mode, an inverted image and crafty use of the surface blur filter. It works best on images such as water or seascapes, but can also work on people, landscapes and even animals.
In the image above (which is a JPEG downloaded from sxc.hu) applying the filter brings out more detail in the petals. A similar result can be obtained using the Clarity slider when loading a RAW file, but this gives the image a bit of extra "oomph"
This action is free for you to use. If you wish to distribute it on your site, please contact me first. I'll say yes, but I just want to know where this has ended up.
And if you want to show your support, you can always buy some of my stock images at iStockPhoto ([link]), or buy one of my Concrete5 themes ([link]) or just straight out donate via PayPal (grayda [at] solidinc [dot] org). Thank you!

By 1850, the lynx had been exterminated in Germany. The species is being reintroduced and in 2002, the first wild lynx was born. If you want to see wild lynxes in Germany, the Harz and the Bavarian Forest are your best bet, but you'd still have to be insanely lucky.
