Now that I've finally figured out how the print screen function works, I'm having way too much fun making tutorials. As if the internet needed more. :eyeroll: This one got a bit wordy...

Hi SachiAmi,

Your "Group With Previous" command, where does one find that in Photoshop cs4?
SachiAmi's avatar
Unfortunately I don't have CS4, so I've got no clue. I think the keyboard shortcut would be the same: ctrl+G.

could you do a tutorial with the little dreadlocks plz?
justamuse's avatar
Thank you! As an artist with a character with dreads, this is a great new way to work with it. I hope it'll work on other colors. =D
SachiAmi's avatar
Cool, I'm glad you found it helpful! You might have to play around with the blending modes for lighter colors of hair, but the basic concepts should still work.
justamuse's avatar
I will, thank you. =D
