Just watched the Adobe Creative Cloud press conference today.
In Summary of the boring stuff:
They've built a lot of needed cross program optimization for their video editing tools
They've further refined their design programs to do nifty new things
They've even created a couple new pieces of hardware, with companion apps that will make it easier to sketch on the go.
Now the part I'm really interested in:
The current versions of Photoshop and Lightroom can now be yours for the low low price of only $10 per month
I'm not lying. Check it here ---> https://creative.adobe.com/plans/offer/photoshop+lightroom
For about the cost of a meal
If you want to know how to get flats with perfect separation, no floating pixels, and are easily selectable. This is the sum total of what you need to know:
It's all in the TOOLS.......and their SETTINGS
Set the feather to zero px, and uncheck anti-alias on the Lasso tool.
Set the tolerance to zero, and uncheck anti-alias on the Wand tool.
Set the Opacity to 100%, and set the tolerance to zero on the Paintbucket tool.
Use the pencil tool to do any fine detail color work, and make sure it's set to 100% opacity as well.
***Do not, under any circumstances, use the Brush tool for flats. Ever.***
These are your must have settings and tools
