1. Adobe Photoshop 2020 | Essentials Training Course For Beginners: Hi there, welcome to quit Photoshop trading costs online. I will be your infinite 12 coat and my name and stress, I am so excited that you've decided to join this community of learners. I know that going into Photoshop can look strange and it looks at stole, you've lost. Well, this is where I come in. I am so glad to join you on your journey to learn in Photoshop and become an, a graphic designer or whatever, you intend to use Photoshop forward. Now with this course, they are variations of lessons that I will be taking you through that will help you to champion and become an expert at using Photoshop. So we are going to that thing, fly. What resources are available to you that you can use for free, such as free images and free brushes, as well as three bonds that are all readily available to you to tap him on lie. We're gonna get into Photoshop and I'm going to show you how to create a document size. How to say, what are the basic options that you can say that ask for a show is all about layering. We are going to go in depth on how to use those tools. And then we'll talk about the blended options, the laziest, which helps you to add different effect to your text or to your image. And then we'll talk about how to take up the background of a subject. How to replace that with another image of your choice. How to tell a photo into a and white image. You ready for this? How to ten a black-and-white photo into a colored cables? Yes. There's so much that we can do. If you are ready and excited like I am, I want you to grab your coffee and let's get started. So I will see you on the next video. K. Oh, I'm excited and I know you are too. 2. Intro Adobe Photoshop Software and Resources: Welcome. I'm so excited to share with you all that we have to offer for this course. But before we do that, I want to show you a few things that you need to have ready before you start with your first lesson. Now the first thing you need is either a laptop or a computer. You need a minimal processor of I5 to be able to use Photoshop. And then the next thing is you even need an eight gigabyte or 16 dependent on what type of images you are development. And for beginners, eight gigabyte will be good enough. Now I am using the latest version of Photoshop. So if you go to Photoshop and about, you realize that I have the latest, which is Photoshop 2020. The next thing that you need to novel as went to get a photoshopped software. Now, if you go on Adobe.com, you'll see that they have different plans. As you can see on the screen. Bundle of 999 with a light room. And at the far right, you can also see a $20 monthly fee for just photo shop. Now, I would recommend that you get the bundle, which is both the Lightroom and Photoshop. Now, the light room allows you to edit photos. If you have photographer, Adobe allows you to have a seven day free trial that you can use. So the next thing that I want to show you is where to get three images that you can use as you practice in the course. I will also make available all the images that I use for you to practice. So the first one is called on splash. I've used on splash most of the time and my tutorials. So even as you go through on splash, you realize that some of the images that you see are in my tutorials. So if I double-click on, let's say MHz, you can see that is a very high resolution image, which you can just go ahead and download and use. Another website that offers three images is Pixabay picks up a wets the same way as on splash. You double-click and you download. And we also have free stock photo. So that is pix so.com, free images.com. You also type that M and you can do a search for whatever image that you want. The next one that I wanted to talk to you about is that Adobe Stock. With the Adobe Stock, you get your ten free images when you do a trial. But beyond that, you have to pay a fee. So if you want free brushes to use and Photoshop and what you have currently in Photoshop is limit Ted. You can just go on Google and type in free brushes for Photoshop. And you can see that there are options that are made available. You can click on one and then you can begin to see the different options that you have. And you can click on one. And then you see that essays free download. So we can go ahead and download it and use it. If you're also looking for free farms to add to whatever came with the Photoshop subscription. You want to go to Google and type in free font. You click on any one that you want, and then you can begin to see that it gives you different options that you can choose from. And you can just click to download and install onto your computer, and it's very easy to install. This will save into your downloads. You double-click on it and it will ask you to install so that quick and easy to do. So now that you know all that you need to get into less than one. 3. Photoshop Interface : Welcome back. So in this lesson, I'm going to show you that different interface of Photoshop. Now, once you have Photoshop open to even know the version at the very top, it tells you what version of Photoshop that you have. On the left-hand side, you have your toolbar and under your toolbar you have a lot of tools that you can use. We are going to go through each one of them so you can get very comfortable with them. But the basic ones we have the MOOC tool, we have the quick select, we have to mark key. We have the Pauline lasso tool. We have the pain that erase the branch. You have your text. You also have your magnifying glass and your foreground background option. And at the top we have the menu bar, and that is where you have your file edit to say you go to your foul to save and also too close and even export or import files. And then under your edit, you do have different options that are made available, Cut Copy onto an olive that we will have different lessons where we go through each of those, be me, the menu bar. You do have another level of options that are made available to you dependant on what, what tool you activate. You see that as I click through the different tools, that option barn begins to give me different options. When you come to the far right, you do have your color, swash, gradient, and patterns, and then we also go down. You have your property and you have your layers panel, which allows you to create different layers that you use. In Photoshop. The boundary where you have your design is what we call the canvas. Now, outside that, your web space, if you wanna read, customize your workspace, you can double-click. The default is the color that it gives you a let's say we want doug gray, we can choose that you realize that the changes for rice. Lets say we want to go with the medium gray, we get a different color. If we want a custom, we can go ahead and actually choose a different color of what choice. And I can click on less it does cover and click OK and you realize that you have a different way expects one last thing. So let's say that you are waking and Photoshop and your things begin to move. Let's say that this is out of place. This is also out of place. Your layers are out of place and you're not sure how to put them all back. Now the easiest way is to go to your workspace right here, the icon, and then you want to click on essential. But if you, you have essential already check, you want to go to reset essential. Let's say you don't want to see the learning option. So you can just collapsed that or you can basically close it or minimize it so that you can have a larger space to work. This brings us to the end of this lesson. See you in the other one. 4. How to open Photoshop: Welcome back. So in this lesson, we're going to learn how to open a new document and Photoshop. So if you open Photoshop for the first time, you will have something like this, except for these files on the bottom. These are recent files that are showing up. But everything else above will be exactly what you would have on your Photoshop. There are two ways to create a new document. You can click on create new. All you can go to File and then you can click on new. Both of them. We'll take you to this window, which will pop up. Now, once this window comes up, you see that they have default documents that you can click on to open and use as your canvas. If you go to photos, you see that they are different size dimension that have already been set. If I go under print, I have similar options. But if you want your own custom size, you can come to the preset detail at the far right. And then you can put in your own dimension and resolution. So typically I would like to work in inches. And let's say I want a ten by ten. So I'm gonna type in ten for the width. And I'm going to type in ten for the height. I always like to keep my resolution at 304. The color option, we want to leave it on RGB color, and then the bits 8-bit is good enough. Background, you always want your background to be white, except when you want a clear background, if you are creating a PNG file, besides that, everything else stays the same. And then you click on create. So once you click on Create to realize that Photoshop opens up for you, I'm gonna collapse this since I don't mean that so I can have a bigger space. So this brings us to the end of the lesson. See you in the next one. 5. How to open an image in Photoshop: In this lesson, I'm going to show you how to bring in a photo into Photoshop. Now there are three ways to bring in an image into Photoshop. So the first way is to go to file open. I am going to just click on the photo that I want to bring in. The next way to bring in your photo is to go to your folder, locate the file that you want to bring in, and then you just want to drag and drop it in Photoshop and we're going to set it like that. The third way to bring in a file is to go back to your folder. And instead of dragging and dropping right-click, and then go to Open With and choose Adobe Photoshop. This brings us to the end of this lesson. I will see you in the next lesson. 6. 1000 FREE PHOTOSHOP BRUSHES : Hey, there, welcome. Did you know that you can get 100003 brushes right now to download? Yes. I want to show you how to do that. So if you purchase for a shop and normally comes with a few basic brushes. But beyond that, you can download 103 brushes from Adobe Photoshop website. So to do that, there are two ways you can go on their website to download it all from Photoshop. You can click on a link that will actually take you to the exact same location. So to do that, you want to Festival click on your brushes and then you want to do a drop-down for your brush. So from here you right-click and then choose, get more brushes. And then Photoshop will take you into Adobe website where all the brushes are made available for you to download. Now, I'm showing you wondering why all three brushes. While there's a gentleman named county Webster, he's an American Illustrator, designer just like you and I, and also a creator. And he wanted to give away his, he wanted to give away a thousand brush presets that he has generated. So to be able to download this, you have to log into your Photoshop, Adobe subscription, then you will be able to download this. Bad. If you don't have Photoshop, Adobe subscription, I will give you a link where you can download all the thousand brushes and install onto your computer. And Ty, nice, I know, I'm so nice. Anyway. So to download, you just click on the download icon. It will download into your download folder on your computer. So once you get back into Photoshop, after you've downloaded every thing, now, you want to know how to basically installed the precious onto your computer. So to do that, you want to go back to your precious. And this time you wanna click on the gear icon at the very top. You right-click, you left-click, and then you go to Import pressures. Now, this will take you to your download folder and you can just double-click. You can just click once on your branch. And once you see photoshop pop up on your screen, it means that that brush has been installed onto your computer so you can go back, do that for all of them. Now, if I scroll through my precious, you can see that I have all of the brushes here for my use. So the last thing I want to show you as that, what if you want to create a special collection of the favorite brushes that you normally use or one to use. Now there's an easy way to do it. So Festival, you want to go to your library, which is very right-hand phi. You click on it and you want to create a new folder. By clicking on the create new group. You can name it new. And then what we are going to do next is to go to our brush options and drag and drop into this group. So I'm going to first of all minimize my library and I'm going to click on my Brush to open it up. Now, if you don't see your brush options showing up on this bar, you have to go under window and you see brushes. You want to click on that? Now mine is check because I already have it open. So from here, you want to go to which ever brush you want. And then you reopen your library, makes sure that you are on the group that you just activated. Now, we can select a brush and drop it. We can select another brush and drop it. And basically this is how you create your own favorite brush on your library. So you don't have to go through all the 1000 brushes to pick out the ones that you want to use. So I'm gonna go ahead and collapse this and collapse that. So that basically brings us to the end of this lesson. If you have any issue downloading took crashes, just send me an email and I will help you. So and joy downloading all of these three brushes. I will see you in the next lesson. Bye. 7. FREE FONT IN PHOTOSHOP 2020: Hi guys, welcome back.

So the first thing that we want to do before we add or create a shapes is that we want to open up our canvas. And to do that, you want to go and click on your crop icon. You realize that it gives you these activations around your image. You want to click one end and will allow you to just drag, to open it up. Now, once you open it up, you realize that it's a portion that you opened up is basically blind or trans pay rent. So to apply the same cyan background, we can do it two ways. You can click on your rectangular marquee tool. And we can make a selection of our background. And we can right-click and say make a copy. And then without Move tool, we can hold on our shift and then we can dry up to fail that M on all sides. So this is one way of doing it. The other option is I'm gonna tend this layer off. And with my Maki tool, I'm going to make a selection of the air we got that is flank. And notice that I went a little bit beyond the area that is blank so I can pick up a little bit on the existing background. And I'm going to click on my foreground once with my color picker. I'm gonna make a selection of my background and click OK with my paint bucket. I'm going to go ahead and fill that air. But notice that I cannot do that because I haven't selected a layer. So I'm going to click OK, choose a background, choose a layer, and then with my paint bucket filled that n. So there is another way that you can extend your canvas. And this comes in very handy. If you have an image with a BZ background or textured background, pick your crop tool and you want to go ahead and enlarge your canvas. Now if you look at the very top, you see content away. You need to click on content away. You want to click on the check to accept. Now what photoshopped does is that it picks and similar backgrounds around your picture to fill in with the ATA area. So as data that is pulled in to basically fill in the empty space. So this is the third way to basically fill in the extension of your Canvas. So with this set for us, we want to move into the next lesson where I show you how to use shapes to create something very fun and simple. So I will see you in the next lesson. 10. How to use Photoshop Tools For Beginners 1: Welcome. So in this four part series, we are going to talk about all the different tools that are on the left-hand side in Photoshop. So without much ado, let's jump into the part. Once you are in your what can file, what you see the white area is called Canvas, and that is where everything you do will show up. Now at the very top, we have what we call the menu bar. And that is the same place you go to save your work. And then to your let we have the tools. The tools are what you use to draw and create your piece. And then on the right-hand side, we do have the Layers panel. It allows you to bring some images forward and put some objects beneath. So it's very useful when working within Photoshop. And also naming your layers that helps you to know what they add to ten off and what layout to leave on. And then right about we have the color, the swatches, a gradient, and patterns. And these are all areas that we will go into. I'm going to do a quick run through of the different tools that are available to you on the left-hand side. So the first one is what we call the move to. So to demonstrate the Move tool, I'm going to go into this folder and I'm going to bring in this image. And as you can see, it was very easy. If you want to bring in an image, you make sure you want to go to the file and you want to click on the image, you want to drag it into your Photoshop and just released. So I'm going to delete this one since I already have one in there. So if you want to move this image, let's say we want to move it up with your moved to activate it. You just move it up just like that. If you want to bring it down, you do the same thing if you want to move it to the side. So basically this is a thing you can use to move anything. Also, if you have your image activated, you can also use your up and down arrow on your keyboard to move your image. Or you can use your side arrows to also shift it from left to right. So the next tool we are going to look at is that eclipse marquee tool. So if I click on that, I can draw an eclipse. If I want to fill this n, You wanna go down here next to your Layers panel, and you wanna click on this plus sign. This plus sign would generate a new layer. And then you want to pick your paint bucket, which is this. You want to go to your color. You want to change a foreground by double-clicking on it. A new window will open up. You can choose a different color by clicking within the box. If you don't like the red, you can basically hold this arrow and you can move it to whatever color you want. You can also just use your mouse to just click and drag and choose whatever color you want. Click the color. Click OK. Using your paint bucket, we can fill that in. And then you can press control D to D select. Now, if you don't want this anymore, you can basically tenet or by clicking on the eye icon next to your layer. All you can get rid of it completely by clicking on your mayor, dragging it to the trash can right in the corner, and it will get rid of it. So the next tool we wanna talk about is the Lasso Tool. Now the lasso tool helps you to make any shape that you want. And just like Eclipse or the circle marquee tool, you can paint within this. But to paint it, we want to make a new layer. And then we can just paint within, if I want to paint it black instead of the green. All I need to do, you see this arrow? You just click on it and we'll flip between the two colors for you. And then with my p Bucket activated, I can click within a game and then it would change the color for you. So you press Control D to D, select. Now the question is, what if I want to go back and reselect the shape to change the color is very easy. As you can see, your layer is selected. So if I change the color by clicking on the black, I can go back and change that color to red. I can click OK. And then with my paint bucket, I can click back on that little image and it will change it for me. If I want to get rid of it, I can turn it off to get rid of it, or I can completely delete that layer. Now, the Quick Selection Tool allows you to make a selection around a subject, or let's say an object will demonstrate by bringing in another image. I'm going to drag this image M to our weekend file. And then I'm going to just scale it by holding one end. I'm going to pull it and then holding the other end, I'm going to pull it. Now, if you have an older version of Photoshop, if you click one end. It will not give you a proportional scale. You will have to press your shift down. You have a proportional scale as you drag it. But in the new version, if you press down the shift, you basically can do the same thing. It actually destroys it for you. But with the older version, if you hold down the Shift, you come basically scale it proportionally. So if you want to scale, but not proportionally, in the older version, then you don't hold down your shift. So once you have your image in the scale, you want, you double-click to deselect. And now if we want to get rid of the background using the Quick Selection Tool, we wanna make sure that we are on the new selection and not the plaza or the subtract those ones you use when you want to add to your selection or you want to take away from your selection. So with the Quick Selection Tool, you want to click on select subject. Now if you click on select Subject, Photoshop would generate an outline around your subject. You can use your subtract from to take away from this area. So we can basically click within and as you can see, it makes us selection and that area for you. So let's say that now we have our selection and we wanna get rid of the background. All you need to do is to come down to your Layers panel. Next to weight below you see this icon that says Layer max. If you click on that, you see that Photoshop takes away the background for you. And once you have your selection, meaning I'm going to ten, the other layer of fast. So we can see. And I'm going to move this up a little. You can basically cut out your background or basically hide it. And we use the layer max to do that. So you click on this icon and you see that it hides the background to you. There are still some imperfection without selection which will have to take care of. But this is just to show you how to use that tool. So the next tool we want to talk about is the crop tool. So let's say we go back, let me turn this off. This is our image. I'm going to resize my image. I'm going to move my image all the way up. And I'm going to enlarge my image to fill up the canvas, and I'm going to double-click. So we are going to demonstrate how we use the crop tool. So let's say I want to crop this image. You see that once I click on a crop to, a selection is made around my Canvas. I can hold one end and then I can either crop this way or that way. And you can see that I can even open up my canvas, which picks up on all the other part of my image. So if I double-click, you see that I get a pick a bigger window. So let's say that I want to open up my canvas even more. If I click on this, I can open up the size. If I open up the side, I'm going to press Control olds, and I'm going to use my mouse to zoom out or zoom out so we can see every piece of our camp. I can reposition my image, let's say here. And if I want, I can rescale it to make it bigger. To fill up my Canvas, I can double-click and then maybe I can move it to the center. Okay, so that's how you use your crop tool. Let's say that I wanted smaller. I can go back click on my crop tool and I can just resize my canvas double-click. So this brings us to the end of the fast part of how to use the tools in Photoshop. So let's move on to part two of how to use tools and Photoshop. 11. How to use Photoshop Tools For Beginners 2 : Welcome. So in this lesson we are going to talk about part two of the tools that you can use in Photoshop without much ado. Let's get started. The next tool is your frame to now, your frame tool allows you to create a boundary in which you can throw in a different photo. So if I draw a boundary, you see that the frame, because I already have an image, a picks up that image. Thing, that frame that I have drawn. If I want to bring in another image, if I go to my folder and I dropped this image into that, you see that my image only fit within the frame that has been created. So that is how you use the frame through. I really like this. This is really nice. Alright, so moving along, I want to show you how to use the eyedropper tool. Now, the eyedropper tool helps you to choose different colors that you want to use in your project. So if I want to pick up less saying why in my Canvas, if I pick up my eye dropper tool and I click in this area, notice that the foreground color changes. If I click in the orange area by foreground changes. If I click in the Read, It changes as well. So that is how you use your eye dropper. You basically use it to pick different colors. I can even use that. So as I move my mouse, you see that my foreground color keeps changing to wherever I put my eye dropper. The next thing on the toolbar is what we call the Healing Brush, that Spot Healing Brush T2. So that Spot Healing Brush comes in very handy if somebody has acne on their face. And as a photographer, you want to clean up the phase and hide all the blemishes that maybe the peasant link at a time to do makeup to hide it. So for the purposes of this, I'm just going to fake and some Acme. We're going to use the spot healing brush to just get rid of these pimples. So with our Spot Healing Brush selected, we basically going to draw almost like you're tracing over where the Acme is. And as you can see, it just disappear. So Photoshop is used in an intelligent IAA to basically replace the area where the spots are with a more refined skin tone. So that is for the Healing Brush. And the next one is the Brush tool. So the brush tool, as the name says, as you can use that to paint. And then if you want to chain the brush head, you just go up to the size and you change it if you want. If you want your branch to be hard, you can move the hardness to whatever you want. If you want to change the brush type, you can also change that here as well. That different brush options that you can choose from. And let's say for demonstrating purposes, if I want to paint, I already have my color selected. I can click on my layer, the background. And let's say I want to paint. I wanna change the background color. So as you can see, I'm just painting over this and I am just changing the background color. And now we have something like this. So if I turn off this layer, you still see that there are still areas that I need to paint over. If I ten back of this layer, you see that the whole background has been painted. So you can either paint a whole background with the brush or another faster way of doing that is used in your packet. So if I change the foreground to green and I use my bucket, I can just paint that. And as you can see, it changes the color for me. So you can either use a paint brush or you can use your paint bucket to achieve the same purpose. Now, with the paint bucket, it covers the whole entire Canvas, but with a branch you can paint and specific areas. So that is the difference. So now that I've already shown you how to use the ping packet, we keep that when we get to it. For the next one is the clone stamp tool. Now, the clone stamp tool allows you to make basically a duplicate of anything that you select. So to demonstrate this, I'm going to make sure I'm on the right layer. And then holding down your Shift, holding down your old, you want to click in the area where you want to duplicate. So let's say I wanted to duplicate the subject. I'm going to click holding down my olds and it makes a selection. So if I begin to paint, you see that Photoshop is basically cloning. Um, another of the same person for me. And if I move my mouse and I restart again, you see that I can create another copy of the same thing. So that's how you use the clone stamp tool. So the next thing after the clothes that I wanna talk about is the eraser to. So with the eraser tool, if you click on the eraser tool, and let's say that we want to erase a portion of our subject. What you can do is that you want to first of all increase the brush head. And now let's say we want to erase a portion of our Subjects image. So as you can see, I'm just getting rid of it. I can even increase the brush head and I can't even get a big area to erase. And sometimes I use the eraser to, if I want to erase a portion of my image, but I want to have that the gradient effects sometimes I wonder as gradual effect. So you make your erase ahead Bader and you also want your hardness to be at 0, so you get the smooth transition effects. So that is how you can use your eraser. I'm going to press Control Z to go back. Oh, another trick. Let's say that I want to go back a couple of times. I can either do Control Z to go back, or you can go to Edit and then do redo, it will go back, or you can do undo and it will go back. The APA technique is to go to view and then go to Windows, and then go to your history. When you go to your history and you open it up, you can see all the different commands that you've already done. And I can just click on where I wanted to go back to. If I wanted to go fatter, I can keep clicking. So I get to where I want it or I can even go back. So as you can see, you can just keep going back to the place or to the exact location where you want. So in this case, I want to go back a little bit further. So this is why I want to end and I'm just going to collapse that. The next thing we wanna talk about is the pain packet of the paint back and I've already addressed. So we are going to move on to what we call the Blair two. So with the bled tool, you either had to pledge to auto shop tool. So and the smart tool. So with as much too, just as its name suggests, you can just basically match, let's say you're making a painting, you can use that effect on your painting and then create different effects. So we don't really need that. So I'm going to press Control Z so we can go back. And then I'm just going to show you how to use the Blair Fest. So if we do N2 as subjects I, you see that both subjects, both eyes are sharp. Now, if I reduce the price, shed a little, I want to make the right eye a little bit more, blair. So I'm going to just brush over this or go over this. I, as you can see, the eye that was sharp now becomes Blair. If I want the right, the left eye to be more sharper, if I choose that sharp tool. And I go over that, you see that it begins to be even more defined in the detail of that, the left arm. So if I zoom out, you can see one eye as sharper the other eye is. So this is a tool that you can use. Let's say you have a picture and you want to play up maybe the background. You don't have to use caution Blair, or the different techniques. You can basically use this tool to basically blend out the background of your subject. Wow, the subject pops better. So this is a very quick and easy tool to use. This brings us to the end of this portion of how to use tools and Photoshop. I will see you in the next lesson. 12. How to use Photoshop Tools For Beginners 3 : I hope you're having fun knowing all of these tools and how to use them. So without much ado, let's jump into pottery of how to use different tools and Photoshop. So with this image, if you want to use the Dodge Tool, basically you click on the Dodge Tool that dot to will make Wherever you paint, lighter. So if I have my image, if I have my Layer selected and I click on, my image, will acts me too. They will ask me to convert my image into a raster image before I'll be able to apply that effect. So you want to click OK. And then you just want to begin to paint in the area that you want lighter. And as you can see as I'm doing that, the image begins to get lighter. If I change my mind and I want it to be darker, I can go back and then choose the Burn tool. Now with the Burn tool, you can begin to make that same area, Tucker, if I want to make this even more darker, as you see, I can even make this area more darker. I can change that by Lou and make it more darker. If I want the balloon to be lighter, I can go back to the Dodge Tool and I can make this even more lighter. So that is how you use the Dodge to enter Pen tool. You can also use this punch. Now, the sponsor is basically these sexual rates your image for you and takes away the color in your image. So the more you do it, the more it takes away, the less you do, the less of the color it pulls out. So with that said, I'm going to turn this off and we are going to go back to this image. I just love it. It's so nice. I want to just keep your excitement. Hi. So let's stick with this image. So the next thing that we want to learn how to do is to use the pen tool. Now the Pen tool allows you to make a selection of an object or anything that you want. So let's say I want to make a selection of just the hair. I can zoom in and then with my pen tool, I can make just quick selection. And as you can see, the pen tool is a little hard to use, but you will have to practice it a couple of times to become perfect with that. And as you can see, I'm not that good with the pen tool because I don't use it that much. But as you practice over and over again, you will become an expert with that. So I'm just making a quick selection around the hair. Now I'm going to close that off. So to make the selection, you want to right click and then say Mecca selection. You want the feather radius to be 0. We press OK. And then it makes a selection. So let's say I want to maybe change the hair to maybe a rat. I can add a new layer and then I can change my color. So let's say, let's say a purple, pinkish click OK. And then with my paint bucket I can fill that in. And then if it's not what I want, I can even just take down the opacity. So the other thing you can also do with the pen tool is that, let's say I'm gonna go back a little to show you by press Control Z a couple of times and I go back to just the selection. I can also click on. I'm going to delete this layer. I can, and I'm on this layer which we can width. If I click on the layer max, as you can see, a cat's out, just that piece for me. So this is a quick way if you want to just select the head. So I'm just going to press Control Z to go back, control D to Deselect. I'm going to zoom out by pressing down my control and old and using my, my mouse, I'm just zooming in and out. The next thing we want to talk about is the text to the text tool is very easy to use. You click on the Text tool. If you click on the horizontal and you click within your canvas, you can just begin to type or you can change the size. Let's make it bigger so we can see. And then you can either begin to type or you can even change the color. Let's say we want a y and we can type in smell. And if you want to increase it, all you need to do is click on your move and then you can just scale it. This way. We can double-click to D select or what you want to do. If you want to change the font style, you can click on your tool. You can click on your text tool again. You can highlight your text. And then right here at the top below the menu bar, you see the font option. All you need to do is click within your font option just one. With your down arrow or your app arrow. You can begin to flip through that different fonts. And you can begin to change the font style to whatever you want. Now with some font-style, you even have the option of making it bold or italics. So let's say I get another type font which allows me to change it. While this one is not, but let's say area. So with the area, you still have different options that you can solve. Choose from a payoff, from choosing the font itself. Next to wait, you can also change the size of the font. We can take the size down smaller, or we can make it bigger. Or if I want as size that I don't see here. Because photoshop entered 72. I can manually type in whatever size I want. Press enter, and you would get that size. And I can use my move tool to move it. So what if I don't want the line beneath? So you can go to your character right here and then you can uncheck your and the line and what taken off. So what if I cannot see my character? Says look up your character, you go to your window, then you just look up your character and that will open up your character for you. With your character open and with your texts selected, you can either change your size by just moving your slider left or right. Or let's say we want to make all of this text lowercase. You can click on the double t and that will make it lower case. If I want to italics, I can click on that. Or if I wanted bold, I can do that. Or italics or lowercase, whatever you want. There are so many options that you can play with. If I have two line texts and I want to paste it in and out, this is what you do to space it in an hour. If you want to close the gap between your text, you just go to your VA. And then this is how you close the text within the space within your texts. So that completes all the different things you need to know about texts. This brings us to the end of this portion of how to use tools and Photoshop. I will see you in the next lesson. 13. How to use Photoshop Tools For Beginners 4 : I hope you're having fun knowing all of these tools and how to use them. So without much ado, let's jump into pottery of how to use different tools in Photoshop. So the next thing we're going to talk about is how to use the polygon tool. So with a polygon two, you have different options. You have the rectangles tool, you have the rectangular eclipse. We even have the line tool, and you can create your own custom shape. So these are all options that you can use to create a shape. Let's say. I want to create a shape here, and I want it. I can leave it white or I can actually change the foreground to black with my paint bucket. I can click within, make a selection of my rectangle with my paint bucket. I can actually fill that in. So you can do that, or let's say that I go back and I want a custom shape. If I click on that, I can just create any shape I want. By going to the shapes option above here. I can click it down and I can choose any shape I want. It can be a boat. I can go up to leaves, I can choose something, or I can even go to animals. And I can pick whatever shape I want. And I can just drop that in here and I can just press OK and it creates the shape for me. So that is how you create your shape. If you don't want that, you can just click on it and delete it. So I'm just going to delete these mouse and just leave the square. So that is how you use the different shape options. So the next tool is the Zoom tool and the zoom tool, you can use it to zoom in and out. And when you look above here, you can have it at a 100% or you can do fit screen, so it will just fit the screen. If you say builds green, it will zoom in more. But typically we always want that fit screen. So that is basically how you use it or you can even press the control, hold it down. And you can also move your objects while you have your doom activated. So if you press down your old, your zoom now becomes the Move tool and you can move things around. But if you release your old, it becomes the zoom tool and you can use it as the name things. So the next thing that we see here is the Edit toolbar, which opens up the very tool you see right here, different options. All showing up here is the same thing. So I'm just gonna close this one. You can look into that as well. So the next thing which we've already used a couple of times is the foreground color or the background color. And when you open Photoshop, that's a default color which comes in as black and white. And you can toggle between by clicking this arrow, which will toggle between the black and white. Or you can, you can press X on your keyboard and it will toggle between those two colors. Let's say you want to change the color. You can double-click on your foreground color. And you can choose any color you want in that window, or you can even move this side arrows and you can choose whatever color you want. You can also change it to these colors. And then you can choose. But if you keep it on the Hue, you can choose whatever color you want. Let's say I want a different color. Let's say I want the orange. So instead of choosing between the option that has been provided, I can basically come here with my color, but my eye dropper and I can pick whatever color I want here. And I can hit OK, and that will show up here. If I wanna change the background color, I do the same thing. I click on that, and then I change the color or a click on that. And I can choose whatever color I want. I can choose a white or a black whatever color. And then I click OK. And that also is changed for me. So we're going to skip the layer Max icon. That is something more, a little bit more advanced, which you don't need right now. So we're gonna move on to the next thing, which is screen mode. So the screen mode, you can, if I want to show what I've done fully on my screen, I can click on this and then I can click it again. It will ask me, do I want a full-screen by say yes, everything goes away and you just see your final products. So once we have this, if you want to go back to your web space, all you have to do is press escape and it will take you back to the web space. So with this, I believe that this gives you a very good understanding of how to use the Photoshop Tools. Now, if you finish your work and you want to save it, one other thing that I'll tell you though, is that whenever you start Photoshop, you wanna fast. You want to always try and save every five minutes. Now photoshop also creates a backup in case your WACC, in case your computer crashes. But always be in a good habit of saving every five minutes or so to save your work, you basically go to File Save As. And then you can either say to the cloud or to your computer. Save to your computer, you click on Save on my computer. Go to find where you want to save your file. And then you wanna rename your file if you haven't already renamed it. Let's say we want to call the smile. So you want to go to, you want to make sure that you save it as a PSD. Now the PSD as your white can fall, which allows you to edit, let's say in a week or in a year. You want to change something on this particular work that you've done. You can always go back because you have a PFD file and you can edit it. But if you save it as a JPEG, you will not be able to edit it. So you felt once and save your file as a PSD, which is your weekend file, you want to click OK. And then once you have finished your, your project, if you want to save your complete file, you go back to File, Save As, and you choose save on your computer. Now this time instead of saving it as a PSD, you actually want to save as a JPEG. Jpeg is basically your final piece. And you also wanna make sure you take your quality all the way up to 12. You don't want to change anything. You wanted to leave progressive and they just click OK, and then you have a final P. So if I wanted to see my final piece, if I go to my folder, you see that? You can see your final piece right here. If you double-click on it, it will show you the final word that you have done. And there it is, Mao, I like it. So that basically gives you a gist of how to use the basic tools in Photoshop. This brings us to the end of this portion of how to use tools and Photoshop. I will see you in the next lesson. 14. Basic Tools in Photoshop: Welcome, I'm so glad you've gotten this far. So in this lesson, I'm going to show you a few ways you can use the tools that are made available to you and Photoshop. So let's say we want to add a text to our image. So what do you want to do as you want to click on your text tool? If you use your mouse to hover over your tool, you realize that it tells you is called Horizontal Type Tool. So I normally referred to it as my text tool. But you want to click on that. So before we type, you want to make sure that you've selected the right color. Just so you know, whenever you open Photoshop, the default color setting as black and white. So if you click on these to black and white icon, you realize that the default color changes for you. Let's say we don't want a quiet, we want, we don't want a black, we want a y. You can just click on this arrow and it will flip it for you. But what if we want a brighter color? You can double-click on your foreground and a color picker window shows up. And this allows you to change the color to whatever you want. So let's say we change it to the deep red. I'm going to click OK. And with my text, I'm going to click inside my canvas. And I'm going to type in the web bold. And I'm going to move it by clicking on my move tool. And I can set it right here or I can set it right there. And then if I want to scale it, you notice that I already have my transform activated on my texts. If you don't see your transform or you don't see these white boxes activated. It means that you have to make sure that show transform is checked and auto select is also checked. And that will allow you to be able to rescale your texts, which ever way you want. The other way of re-scaling is that you want to click on your text. You want to go ahead and highlight. And you can go to your font size and you can change it here. The third way is to also come under your property. You see your text font size. You can increase it by moving your mouth to the right. And if you want to remove and set it in place, you go to your Move Tool and you can set it, right, that if you want to change the color as we can go to our texts. Tool you can highlight, you can double-click on your foreground. We can choose a blue color like that, and we're going to click OK. And we want to come out so you can see it very well. If you want to make it bold, you go back, highlight and you can change phones tau. So we have something like this. So the question then is, what if I want to make my text a little bit transparent? So you want to go and Dido Layers panel. And you wanna make sure that layer of your text is selected. And then write about you see a possibility. You wanna take down by capacity by moving a slider to the left, and that will reduce the level of transparency. You can see your image through your texts. So with that said, Let's say we want to crop our image a little. So to crop your image, you wanna click on this icon, which is your crop tool. Once you click on your crop, you realize that you have these little activation on your image and you can move it this way or move it down to crop it, which ever way you want. I'm going to just crop it this way. You can also crop it from the bottom. Once you're satisfied, you double-click. So let's say that we want to add a circle or a square to our image. There are two ways of doing that. You can use your Marquee Tool or you can come down here to your shapes and you can do the same. So if I click on my Eclipse and we are going to choose a different color before we apply the shape. So I'm going to pick a color within my image. So to do that, you see that the color picker allows you to pick any color in your image. So if I want this golden color, but I wanted a little bit deeper, once I make my selection, I can go up here, so I get a deeper option of data. I'm going to click OK. And I can pick my Eclipse tool and I can draw something like that. And if I want to move it, I go to my move tool. And if I want, I can also reduce or possibly, so I have something like this. Let's say I want to add another shape. I can go back here to either my rectangular marquee tool. And I can do a very similar thing. So I can also draw, let's say a square or whatever I want. Say something like this. But this one, you notice that it doesn't create, it doesn't fill in the Colored For me. You will first have to add a new layer and you have to go pick your paint bucket. Now, I want a different color. So I'm going to I want a different color and I want a quiet. So I'm going to just click on my black and white default color. And then I'm going to click on my arrow to flip it with my paint bucket. I'm just going to pink inside and I'm going to press Command D to D select. Now the question is what if I want to bring it below my texts? Or you need to do is click on your image and drag it below your texts. Now what if I want to make it a little bit lighter so I can see my subject. You can take down by passively just like that. And you get something like this. If you wanted a little bit more, you can increase it. If I want to move it, I can select my move tool and I can move it out of the way. I can do something like this. If I want to rotate it, I can just do this. And it will rotate that for me. If I want to bring it down a little, I can scale it to do something like this. Or I can do something like that. I can double-click to de-select if I wanna change the color. This one, I can easily click on my image and I can double-click on my foreground. Maybe choose a different color. Click, okay? And with my paint bucket, I can feel that. And so you realise that with this option, you can actually change the color once you have drawn in your shape. The other thing is, if you want your canvas to fill up your space, you want to click on your magnifying glass. And you can just go ahead and click on fit to scale. And it will cover your entire what can space for you. If you want to zoom out, you can use your zoom out option to just do one click. It was zoom out if you want to zoom and you can do the same thing by clicking on your plasma zone. If it zooms in too much, you can click on FET and it will fit to the Watkins space. So these are some of the basic tools that you'll be using in Photoshop. This brings us to the end of this lesson. I will see you enter the next one. 15. LAYERS AND LAYERS PANEL IN PHOTOSHOP: Welcome back. So in this lesson we're going to talk about layers and layers panel. I'm going to use this graduation card design, which we will be creating as we progress as an example to demonstrate and explain all you need to know about layers. The layers panel is located on the right hand side, bottom section of your screen. So in the layers panel we have what we call layers, channels and pack. And then when you come below, we have what we call a blend mode option, which he used to which you use on either images or texts you can use it on so many things. Inside is what we call layers. Now, layers are basically how you arrange your texts, images, and everything within your design. Below the layers, we do have the trash or delete icon. We have the plants, which is either to duplicate or create a new layer. We have the folder with groups, your layers, we have the adjustment levels, layer max, we have the Layer Style and Lincoln of layers. I wanna take you through a few of the icon so that you get an understanding of what layers are and what the layers panel does. Let's jump into the next lesson where I keep you that breakdown of the different parts on the Layers. Panel C, U, i. 16. HOW TO USE THE LAYERS PANEL IN PHOTOSHOP 1: Welcome back. So in this lesson, I'm going to show you all you need to know about layers. And layers go hand in hand with the latest panels. So this section of your screen is where you will normally find the latest panel. And the layers panel has what we call layers. And the layers there are different options that can help you rearrange images, texts, and whatever you use to come up with your design. So if you look at this simple image, you realize that there is a lot of layering that is going on. So I want to collapse this groups. So you can see that there are different layers in this image that makes it work. So if i ten of this image, you realize that the blue background goats away is not deleted, but I can just turn it off. And this little icon is what we call the visibility. Now the visibility helps you to either ten on a layer or ten at all. If you don't want to use it, you don't have to delete it because you might want to use it again. So the option to hide is always best when you design them, unless you know that you really don't need this layer. So since we talked about visibility, I want to show you, if you want to delete a layer, you basically click on this layer and dragged it to the trash icon and it would delete it. I'm going to press Command Z to bring it back. So that is how you can delete or you can right-click and also click on Delete layer. Or the third option is with your layer highlighted, you can click on Delete and it will take it away. Now the next thing is that if you have a layer, you can basically renamed that layer. So if you double-click on the text, you can basically rename it. So I have this gradient fill. I can double-click on it and name it Gradient Blue. Just like that. And just hit enter. And that is basically how you rename. Why do you want to rename? It helps you to organize your your layers and it helps you to recognize what layer is for what. And some cases you don't have to Eve, you've mastered and you understand how latest work. But for beginners you want to be in the habit of naming your layers. Now, the next thing that I want to show you is that in your layers, there are other options below the Layers panel I just wanted to take you through. You see a plus icon. Now, the plus icon helps you to add a new layer. So let's say I want to add a new layer above my gradient. I can click on the plus icon and we'll add a new layer. I can paint a different color. I can pick my paint bucket and maybe choose like a gold. And then I'm going to click OK. And let's say I want to paint that in the background. I'm gonna pick my paint bucket and I've just felt at n, So that fills the entire thing. And that is how you bring him a new layer. Now, there are other ways you can bring in a new layer. You can make a duplicate of an existence layer. How do you do that? There are multiple ways. You can drop this existing layer to the plus icon. It will create a duplicate for you. It will create a duplicate for you. I'm going to press Delete to take it off. Or you can also press Command J. It will make a duplicate for you. I'm gonna delete that again since we don't need it. Now, another way that a layer can be created in the layers panel is when you type in a text. When you type in a text, you don't need to create a new layer. So to demonstrate e by go, pick up my type tool and I click some way here. You notice that by default a new layer is created and essays Layer three. If I type in a name and then I click enter, if you look at your texts, you noticed that you don't have to rename it because your text basically takes the name of whatever information you typed and that labels it for you. Oh, and then the way that a layer is generated in the layers panel is when you bring in a new image. So once you drag a new image, all you bring in a new image into your what can file a new layer automatically generated for you. We're going to end this lesson here and continuum, talking about the Layers panel in the next lesson. 17. HOW TO USE THE LAYERS PANEL IN PHOTOSHOP 2: Now let's say that we have this image and we want to put our MH below our texts. We don't want the image to be on top of the text. So what you do is you want to go to your layer, select that layer. You want to make sure that with your mouth, you just drag it to go all the way below. The two by subject is behind the two. If I want the two to be behind, I can drag it and I can pull it or with it in that place, I can rub up, move my image and put it in between the two. And you basically have the same effect. So moving layers are very easy. It's very easy to do. You just select your layer and then you drag it to which ever position you want. Now, the next thing on the lowest section, when you move from the plus icon, duplicate the plus icon. You also see a folder. Now, the folder basically helps you to group, create, multiple design in the same file. So let's say that I loved as design, but I want to have another one of the same design, but I want to change the background of that one. So what you can do is you can select everything like this. And you want to create a group, click on your folder and a group's everything for you. Now, if I turn off my disability, I lose everything. If I turn it back on, everything shows. If I want to have another duplicates of this, that maybe is for another student and I want to change maybe the picture or the background. You don't have to recreate another file. You can use the template you've already set. You want to make a copy. So you can drag to the plus icon to make a copy. Just like this. I'm going to press commodity. I'm gonna press Command Z to go back. Or with that layer selected, you can click command j that will make a duplicate. All you can right-click and also choose duplicate group. So I'm going to name this group two. And then I'm going to turn off the visibility of group one. So I can go into group to, I can click on my background and I can just change the color to any thing that I want. Now to change the column, click on the color. And let's say we want red instead of what we had. We want this color. So I'm going to just click on it and click OK. And OK. So you realize that we do have two different designs. So we have one with the red and gold, and then we have another one with a blue. So you have this and then you have that. So this comes in very handy when you are designing for different people. But you are using similar things for all of them. So you can create one template, duplicate the group for the entire design, and then you can use it for as many iterations, but you want to create. So I'm going to turn off this cover, and I'm also going to show you the next thing. So the next thing under the Layers panel is what we call the adjustment layers. Now, the adjustment layers, which we will get an depth, also helps you to do different things to your image. So like this gradient that we added, Let's say I opened up this group. And I want to add a gradient on this subject so I can click on my subject layer, go to my adjustment levels, and choose gradient. And then I can go ahead and maybe change the color of this to, let's say a blue. We're just playing with colors like blue like that. And I'm going to click OK. And OK. and OK. So notice that the layer I created is right on top of mine subject layer. Now, if I want that gradient to be on top of everything I've done, I basically have to move this gradient all the way up to the very top and it will cover everything. Now, that's not what I want. So I'm going to press Command Z to go back. So you can have something like this. And this is all, we're just playing with different layers. So this is just one of the many adjustment options that you can use. And I will have a little, I will have another lesson. So we go into it. 18. HOW TO USE THE LAYERS PANEL IN PHOTOSHOP 3: So the next thing is what we call the layer max. Now the layer max helps you to hide things and also reveal certain things that you want to see. And we basically used that when you want to cut out the background of a subject. So I want to just quickly demonstrate that for you to see. So let's say that this subject, we want to remove her background. So simply you want to click on that. You want to click on your subject. And we are going to pick our quick select tool. Click on select subjects for the shop is basically given us a rough cut out of a subject. And I'm just going to add this tensile row quick. So we have this. So let's say we wanna add, we want to hide the background. You basically click on the layer max and then you realize that a cut out the background of the subject for you. Now the reason why we have a wide outline is because it was an a circle. So it's still keep in the outline that we created for our image. So that is, I'm going to and delete the layer max. Now to delete the layer max, you want to right-click and basically say delete or even able. If I thus able it is there, bad is basically hidden. If I want it back, I just right-click and go to enable layer max. So I'm just going to disable it. So the next thing you see here is what we call the Layer Style. Now, when you go instantly as tau, it helps you to add different themes to your texts like bars. In our shadow, drop shadow. You can even make your font a little bit to have a machine as 13 sheen and all of that. And you can apply those effects also on different images. I will have another tutorial for that as well. So if we pick this font, which is a true, we can go to our Layers panel and we can add baffle emboss. It will open up the Layer Style and we can begin to add different effects to our text so I can change it to something like Enter bevel, you realize that the texts begins to change. A has at 3D effect. We can even add a stroke. It gives it an outline. We can add a drop shadow, it mix it a 3D. So I'm just gonna close this. So this is a very useful tool that you can use, especially on your font. So the last one we see here is what we call link. Now, link basically will be activated IEP U12 match, let's say multiple layers. So let's say I want to match all of these numbers. I have them on selected. So there are two ways you can select your layers. You can hold down the Shift key and select them enter federally, just like this. Or you can basically go into you can basically go into your layer and select them one at a time. Now once you have your layer selected, your link is activated. You can click on that to link your layers so you can move them together. And another way that you can link your layers is to right-click. And the link option will be made available right now is unlinked option that is available because I have these layers already linked. Now with this length, I can move all of them simultaneously. So that is the cool thing about linking layers. You still have the option of changing the entropy drops. So let's say I want to make this too. I can still do it, but when I want to select them, I can only select them in a group. So if I don't want them in a group anymore, all I have to do is to right-click, say on link layers. And now they are all individual layers as set, the one that I clicked on, notice that it only on link. Thus one, if I want to on link all of them, I need to select all of them in my layers. I will then be able to right-click and on link all of them at the same time. So this brings us to the end of the third lesson on the Layers panel. We are going to move into less than four. And that will conclude all you need to basically, you know, about the Layers panel. 19. HOW TO USE THE LAYERS PANEL IN PHOTOSHOP 4: Welcome back to the last lesson on the Layers panel. So without much ado, let's jump right into this lesson. There are a few other things that I want to show you. Now. You notice that this number is transparent and you can do that with any texts or even Amy image. Now, the easiest way to do it is when you select your layer, you go to your capacity. You can reduce your capacity, and that is what gives you that transparent level. You can decrease at more, or you can decrease. It may be midway. So you have something like that. You can also do it even when you have a text that you've already applied, a layers style, you can do the same thing. I can select this and I can basically reduce the opacity on the entire thing. So for images, yes, you can do the same. If I click on this image, I can basically go to my opacity and I can reduce it. And it's very similar to what the fail also does. The field does a similar thing. The last thing I want to show you are the last two things before we end this lesson is that you can lock your layer. Now to lock your layer is very easy. You want to click on the padlock and you see that that icon shows up on your layer so you can move anything on the, on your canvas as septal layers that you have logged. Now to unlock, you click back on that layer, you click back on the padlock and it basically goes away. Now the other thing that you must always remember is that if you want to group different layers together, you cannot have any of them locked. If you trying to group different layers and the group icon, not respond. And it means that you have maybe one or two layers that are locked and you need to unlock it before you can do that. So the last thing I want to show you is what we call the Blend Mode option. Now the Blend Mode option is a whole lesson on its own. I'm gonna do another lesson for that. But basically, if I take this image, I'm gonna go back to the group. I'm going to tell this group of, so let's say that this image, I want to change it to happen to frame effect. I can use my blend mode and I can begin to play with the different options that it provides me. So you can see that even with the screen, it makes my image a little bit brighter, but sort of length and a little with the background. So you can see that you get different effect dependent on what lambda1 option you want and the list goes on and on. So you must know what you want to do and use that option. I hope you found this lesson very informative. I will see you in the next lesson where we create a graduation card using a few of all of these elements that we have spoken about from the tool bar to the layers panel. So I will see you in the next lesson. Bye. 20. CONTENT AWARE FILL PHOTOSHOP 2020: Hi guys, welcome back. So in this lesson, I want to show you how you can use the content of web tool to take out Amy vein in Photoshop. So you select your lasso tool. You can select just the Lasso Tool, not appalling. And you want to make a selection around the area that you want to get rid of. So I'm just basically draw in an outline around all of my subject like that. Now there are two ways you can right-click and then choose content aware, or you can go to edit. If you are on the older version, go to Edit, then choose content away. They both give you the same results. So I'm going to right-click and choose content aware fail. Now for shock will basically give you a preview and as you can see, is showing you a preview of how the remove out looks. And this is really amazing. So all you need to do is go ahead and click on apply and click OK. Command D to de-select and everything is gone. You can hardly tell that there was even a subject that, so guys, this brings us to the end of this lesson. I can't wait to see you in the next lesson. Bye. 21. PHOTOSHOP QUICK ACTION REMOVE BACKGROUND: Welcome back. So in this lesson, I want to show you how the new Photoshop 20-20 one has made it so much easier to take up the background of any subject. So let's say we want to take up this background, but we want to Festival, add a new layer and maybe fill that in with, let's say the blue, we want to take up paint bucket. We are going to paint that n and we're going to move that below. I was subject. Now, to get rid of the background, you want to click on your image and you want to go to your property. Now, my property is showing up right here. If yours is not showing up, you need to go to your windows, then go click on property. So it shows up now. And the property, you want to scroll down to where it says quick action and you want to click on remove background. Now you see that Photoshop, that's a very good job of taking up the background for you. Now the other alternative, if you use an a 2021 and Photoshop, is that you want to go up to help and under Help, shop help. And this brings up the quick action tool which is right here. It allows you to take, remove background or bled background or enhance an image. Also make an image black and white with only one image in color. So guys, this is basically how you take off the background in just one click. But you also have to notice that this is more for beginners who don't really know how to use all the tools and skills. So if I zoom in, you realize that this area wasn't selected and even this area is showing something that we don't need. So to clean it up, you want to go pick up your lasso poly lasso tool. You can basically make a selection right here. You want to make sure your Leah max is activated. Pick your brush tool with your foreground as whites. With your foreground as black. We all know black height, white reveals. So you want to basically paint over that to hide it. Command D to D select. Now, if we want to take care of the one in between this section of her, we have to do the same thing. So either you pick your lasso tool or you can use your pen tool to make the selection. I like to use my Lasso Tool and I'm more comfortable with that. So whatever you're more comfortable with, you can do that. And you can basically make us selection in this area, like so with your brush, you want to paint this area? Now my brushes so small, so I'm going to use my right bracket and I'm going to just increase it like that. And I'm going to make sure I cut out this area and that area as well. So I'm going to press Command D to D select, pick my poly lasso tool again and just gently go through this area with my paint brush to lead that command D, the select. Now, we just have this little area to do and we are basically done. As you can see, this looks good guys. I wanted you to see that Photoshop 2021. It's very advanced and there is so much you can do. The only thing with that is that you might have to make some new small tweaks once you apply the quick action that is provided in 2021. Let me know if you found this very cool and interesting. And I will see you in the next lesson. Bye. 22. ASSIGNMENT 1 REMOVE BACKGROUND IN PHOTOSHOP: Hi students, welcome. I'm so excited about this assignment. So for assignment one, I want you to download this MH, go ahead and take off the background and replace the background with a solid color. Now, for option two, you can use either your own picture or you can basically go online and download an image of your choice and you take off the background and replace it with a solid color. I'm so excited. I can't wait to see your weren't. So have fun doing this. See you in the next lesson. Bye. 23. HOW TO BLUR BACKGROUND IN PHOTOSHOP 2020: Hi guys, welcome back. So in this lesson, I want to show you how you can play off the background of your subject. Now, in this image, we can see a little bit of a blur effect going on. But I wanted to show you how you can even take it a step further. So in Photoshop 2021, there is a feature that you can use, but it doesn't do quite a good job. So we want to try both options. And Pam, I will show you one, I think is the best. So we are going to unlock our layer, make a duplicate by selecting your Layer press Command J, make a duplicate. Now lets say this will be option, Option one using the action. So I'm going to turn this off for now. So we're going to try the Adobe option. So we are going to go to help and choose Adobe Help. Now, if you go under quick action, you see the option that says black background. If we click on that, it will access. If we want to apply, we say yes. And for the shock will do it for us. Now. If we want to take it a step further, you can close this. And then you want to double-click on your gushing Blair. And now you can even increase it further if you want the background to be more blurred. So we can have it looking like this. And I'm going to click OK. But notice that when you zoom in, you realize that the outline of a subject looks a little bit blurred. And we don't really want to do that. So even if I take the Geschwind blend a little bit, you see that edges of our subject is not sharp. So I'm gonna click OK. And this, we are going to leave us Option one. I'm going to select both Layer and group it. And I'm going to name this option one. Now we want to try Option two, and that is using another method. So for option two, we are going to create a duplicate Command J to create a duplicate. Now, the duplicate will be our background and we want to extract our subject from the background. So we are going to use the quick remove our background to do that. So I'm gonna click on the layer and we are going to click on remove background. So if I turn this off, you realize that this one doesn't have the background. So we're going to turn this off and turn this back on now to give us a very good background, Blair, without the edges being in smallest or look very like feathered. We basically had to apply a content away to this image to get rid of the subject in this image. So just like the previous lesson, you want to select your Lasso Tool. And we are going to make a selection like so around our subject. In this case, both subjects like that, complete that, close it off, right-click and we wanna make sure we're on the right layer, right-click. Now, you can see that content away fail now is going to fill that in for us. As you can see, it did a very good job. We're gonna click OK Command D to D select. Now we can turn back on our background image. So now you see that background and our subject out on two different layers. So now we can basically bled out our background without affecting the sharpness of our subject. So I'm going to manage both the content away clip that was patched with the background and our background image right-click. I'm going to match both. So now that we have one file, we want to go to fail. Blair, cash-in Blair. Now we can basically bled out. How ever we want. We can even take it all the way. So we don't see exactly what the background is at all. So I want to show you the difference between using the quick action option versus going this route. So if I zoom in looking at the sharpness around us subject, let's see if we have the same effect with option one. So I'm going to hold on my option on my Mac, and I'm going to click on my visibility to ten on the background. So you can see that if you look up close there is this Blair effect around us subject. But if you look at option two is very crypts clean. So guys, pisa, two alternatives. I'm going to leave that decision for you to choose which one you want to do or incorporate into your work. So let me, so guys, this brings us to the end of this lesson. I've given you two options, a shortcut, and one that takes a little bit longer, but it gives you the defined look that you want. I hope this lesson was informative, takes some time and practice. I will see you in the next lesson. Bye. 24. ASSSIGNMENT 2 BLUR BACKGROUND IN PHOTOSHOP: Hi students, welcome back. So for assignment three, this is going to be very short. I want you to take cut out the subject and I want you to lay it out. Now, a little tip. You can use the quake action remove background, but you know that it gives you that Blair around your subject. So just a refresher, you need to cut out the subject, make a copy of your background, fill it in with a content away, then lay it out. K, If you are not sure what to do, just go back to the previous lessons so you can get a refresher. I can't wait to see what you do. So have fun doing this pi. 25. How to cut out hair in Photoshop: Welcome, I'm so glad you've made it this far. In this lesson, I'm going to give you a little secret on how to take off complicated background. Let's get started. So the first thing that we are going to do is as always, creates a copy of this image. So to create a copy, you can do multiple each and do it multiple ways. You can drag your image to the plus icon to make a duplicate, or you can click on your image command J, it will make a duplicate for you. And then we are going to pick our quick selection tool. And we are going to click on select subject. Now photoshop quickly cuts out the subject for you, but you can still see that there are some areas that we need to clean up. So to include all of these little hash trends and our selection, we have to go to select and Max. And in this property, we will be able to add the rest of the hair that we are missing. So the faster we go into dew on the property bar, you wanna make sure that you are on the overlay. You want to also make sure that your capacity is about 50%. And then with our radius, we are going to take it to eight pixels. And then I'm going to pick my edge refining brush. And I'm going to go ahead and clean up the areas that we want to include. Now, if you don't see your brush head, it means that your cup lots as on. So once you onclick your cup locks on your keyboard, you will be able to see your brush head so you can begin to brush over. Now, if your brush head is too small on your keyboard, you can use your left and right brackets. You're right bracket will make your brush had bigger. You're left bracket will make your brush heads smaller. So dependent on how big you want it, you can do that. So I'm gonna go ahead and I'm going to brush in this area. And then I'm going to also pick up and the little strands that we see. But before that, I'm going to go ahead and take care of the green that we see in the hair. I want to make sure I include every part of the hair. Now this is the most tricky part when it comes to select and hair, but you just have to do the best selection as possible. So with our hair completely selected, the other thing you want to do is that you want to make sure that decontaminate color is checked. And you realize that it takes away all the grades. And now you can actually see the hair color itself. You also wanna make sure that your output faced new layout with layer Max. And we are going to click okay. So you see that this technique really helps to cut out the hair. Now, of course, if you look at the hey, you realize that it looks like is much thinner towards there, as much thinner and some areas, I want to add a background so we see how a logs and a new background. So you want to click on your plus icon to add a new layer. And with our pain packet, I already have a color that I've selected. And I'm going to click. And you realize that the cost selection is really, you realize that the hair cut out looks really good. So looking at the image with a background, you realize that this has some action approach is a very good technique to use. Now, if I want to see the before and after, I'm going to hold down my old and click on my background image. So this is before and this is the after. It looks really good. So before and after a very good selection. So I'm going to end this lesson here. And for the next lesson, I'm going to show you how you can bring in a new background to replace what we have. Now. See you in the next lesson. Bye. 26. How to replace background in Photoshop: Welcome. So in the previous lesson, you learned how to take up the background. In this lesson, I'm going to show you how to bring in a new background and also tweak your subject to make it look as though you took both the background MDE subject layer together. Let's jump into this lesson. So now I want to go ahead and bring in one background to replace tens. So I'm gonna click on this image that we have. I'm going to drag it and drop it into our file. And I'm going to rescale like this. And I'm gonna go ahead and move it beneath our subject layer. So we have this lock and I liked the way it is, but I want to create a depth effect. I wanna play out the background a little. So I'm gonna go to filter blur, caution, Blair. And I'm gonna keep my radius at 3.5. I'm going to click okay, so you can see the subject very sharp because the subject is right in front of you and you have the background. What I'm going to do is to add a color look up so that we can blend in our color very well with our background image. So I'm going to go to adjustment and pick column lookup. So to add a color lookup and make sure that it matches very well with our background. We wanna festival, clip, our color lookup to our subject file only. So to do that, you want to hold down your old, you realize that your mouse icon changes to a down arrow. And that allows you to clip your image, whip the background image. So you want to click the line in between the two layers and it will clip it. Now we can apply our changes. So I'm going to change my column lookup to candlelight. And you realize that a gift that's cool and warm effect. And now we want to go too abstract. And we want to, we want to increase the, we want to decrease the lightened Ness. So when you do that, you get this cool effect. So it makes your picture blend in well with your background as though you took those pictures together. So this brings us to the end of this lesson. I want you to download this file and try to hand are taken up the background and replace in it. Or you can also use your own image or download a new one from ons blush. So see you in the next video. Bye. 27. ASSIGNMENT 3 CUT OUT HAIR CONTENT AWARE PHOTOSHOP: Hi Students for assignment two, I want you guys to go ahead and download these two images. This one and this image. Now, for this image, I want you to cut out the subject using the quick select tool and also the refining and to basically clean off the hair. Now, the second part of the assignment is that once you have your subject cut out, I want you to bring your subject into this image and also use a content away to get rid of this subject in the photo. So have fun guys doing this. And oh, if you want, you can use your own MH For the cutoff. I tell them wait to see what you are able to do. And if you have any questions, feel free to ask me in the discussion board by. 28. Levels Adjustment: It's good to have you back. For this lesson. We are going to learn how to use levels and Photoshop. So to bring up the levels adjustment option, or you need to do is to go to your property and next to when you see adjustment. So we are going to click on adjustment. And you realize that as I hover over these little icons, it tells me exactly what they are. The one we want as the second one. So when you click on levels, you noticed that in your Layers panel, it creates a new layer for you. So all the changes that you're going to make with the levels will only affect the layer which is labeled Level one. And if I turn it off, all the changes I make will not affect the original image. And this is what we refer to in Photoshop as non destructive. You always want to wet in layers so that in case you don't want something you've created, you can just eat that deleted or ten it off so that effect doesn't affect your original image. Another way to also bring up the Layers option is to go to adjustment right below. And you can click on levels. And you realize that I have a second level, which is basically a duplicate, so I'm going to delete that. So what we want to do with this picture is that this picture looks a little bit washed out. So let's say we want the color saturation to be intensified. What we need to do is to play with a slide as below our levels. Now, when you look at the slide as they are three sliders, you have almost like a black. You have a grayish and then you have a white. So you realize that when I moved up black slider, you noticed that the poles all the color richness in your image, so it pops a little bit more. And when I move the slider from the right, you see that a brighten up the image. So basically the black one does the opposite of the right hand side, the middle one. You can also move it either left or right, depending on how you want your image to look. There is no one right answer. For this. Is Jess, more dependent on your preference and how you want your image to luck. Now, if we want to compare the before and after, I'm gonna ten of the eye, which stands for disability. So you see this is the before and now we see this as the after. We get a more Rachel. You see that the contrast is showing well, the colors are vibrant and bright. So this is a basic way to use the Levels adjustment. So what I want you to do is download this exercise file and apply the Levels Adjustment. So I can see how well you understand the Levels adjustment and how to use it. So this brings us to the end of this lesson. I will see you in the next one. 29. Vibrance Adjustment: Welcome back. So in this lesson, just like we use the Levels adjustment, we're going to do the same thing, but with this lesson, we're going to use the five primes adjustment. Now the vibrance basically makes your Mh pop in terms of all the different colors. So if you go to the adjustment and you click on these icons, you realize that you can click on the triangle which is turned upside down. That is your vibrant. So I'm gonna click on that. And just like the Levels Adjustment and new layer has been created for me, so all the changes will be on that particular layer. So I can just click on my vibrant and just slide it either left or right when I slide it to the left as basically making my image more dao and more on the side. But if I slide it towards the right, you begin to see that it pulls out all the rich color and a mix your image, pop a little bit more. Now, if you want the color to be a little bit more intense, you can move your saturation slider and you can tell the difference. It makes the, it may be a little bit more richer than it was before. Now to see a before and after, I'm going to turn off the visibility for the vibrance. And you see this is the before. And now this is the after. You see a very big difference. And this is a very simple technique that you can use to touch up your photo. So this brings us to the end of this lesson. Let's move into the next lesson where we are going to learn how to take the background of a subject. 30. Enhance Photo: Welcome back. So for this lesson, we are going to learn all about and hence in photo. So the concept of enhancing an image is to improve or change the quality without adding or deleting any thing. So without much, I do less jump into Photoshop so I can show you how to enhance this photo. So the first thing we want to do is to add an adjustment levels. To do that, you want to go to your adjustment icon. And we are going to right-click, and then we are going to choose levels. So what we are going to do now we're going to move our slide as this way and that way. And as you can see, it begins to pull up the richness and the photo. So I'm just going to slide it just a little bit more so we get some track, we get some contrast, and at the same time, the color richness pops even more. So with this set for us. And next thing we want to do to play out the background. The background is already blurred, but we want to take it a step better. So you want to click on your background image and you wanna make a duplicate of that. And what we are going to do is that we want to take this image and we are going to go to Filter. And Blair, caution bled. And we want to take our radius down all the way to, let's say cell becomes a little bit more lettering, something like that. And I'm going to click okay? So right now, I know you're thinking what has happened in the subject as Blair, the background is blurred. What we are going to do is that we want to cut out a subject and a car and everything on the car and only lay out the background. So to do that very easily, this is what we're going to do. We're gonna go back to our background image and we want to cut out our subject and the car and everything on the card. So we're gonna go to our quick select tool and we're gonna click on Select subject. And Photoshop is going to generate an outline for us around the subject. So Festival, I wanted ten of the blur image, so, so we can see the actual shop photo up. Now I'm gonna take my plus selection tool and you just want to add. So we're just going to click on these areas so we can include them in our selection. So now that we have this, we are going to set zoom out so you can see everything. So we're gonna go back to our blade image with that layer selected. We don't necessarily want to put a layer max on a subject. We want to reveal the background. So you want to go to select and then choose inverse. So now we've selected the inverse of all the areas where our subject is. Now we're going to click on our Leah max. So once you click on your Layer max, your subject now is hidden. Always remember that black height y reveals. So when you look at the thumbnail of your layer max, only in the background, only the background as shown. And that's why that isn't wide and your subject now is all hit and so that's what we want. And now, if I do that before and after, you see that there is a slight difference between what we had originally and now it's even more blurred. So the next thing we want to do is to add a solid color. We want to add a little bit more richness. I'm from where the sun is hidden from the back. So you want to make sure you have your top layer selected. And we are going to click on our adjustment option and then choose solid coloured. And we want to look for like an orangey color. I'm going to click on that. I'm going to click Okay. So from here you want to change your London options to stop light. So now that we have done that, it looks too much, it looks choose saturated, and it all just stay with me. So what we are going to do is we wanna click on our leah Max and we want to invert it so you hold out your control and then press on eye on your keyboard. And you see that the color is now hidden. So we are going to pick up our brush tool. You want to make sure that your foreground color is white. White reveals black height. So now we want to reveal the color in certain, in certain areas. So I'm just going to now begin to brush over these areas. And as you can see, we get some richness in these areas. And I'm going to add some rich tones to the ground as well. And a little bit here. So it's not on the subject, but you can enter background. This is looking really nice. I loved the way a lot. So if you wanna see the before and after, you're going to click on your layer and click on the top layer, accept your background and you're going to click on Group icon. So it groups all the different changes we have made to our background image. And notice that all the changes we have made, if I turn it off, it doesn't effect as the original image. And this is what we call the non-destructive. Whenever you are editing a photo, you want to wait in this manner so that in case you want to go back, you always have your original image. So this is what we started with. And this is what we have, is so rich, it pops. It looks like she's having so much fun and laughter richness in have skin tone and the car as well as what is on top of the car. So I'm gonna collapse group and I'm going to make another duplicate of a subject. But this time I'm going to move it all the way up the top. And what I'm going to do, I'm gonna go to filter. Then we want to choose Other and high pass. So in High Pass, you can choose whatever radius you want to get the sharpness that you need. But I'm gonna keep this going to keep it. I'm going to take it down just a little 16. And I'm going to click OK. I'm going to do is I'm going to zoom into the subject. So you can begin to see once we apply, once we apply the blend and options to our high path. So you can see that difference. So this is the before. And now with the high pass, if I change the blend mode, I'm gonna go for the Hard Light. It gives me a lot more detail. So I'm going to make it all. So now, if I do that before, you notice that the image is a little bit blurred to begin with. But now, if I add the high-pass, you see some richness. Now the next thing that we want to do, I don't want to apply the sharpness on the background. I just want to focus on the subject. So what we are going to do is that we want to go back to our bled image. I'm going to hold down my control and I am going to select my layer max. So when I select my layer mass, this time we want to apply our changes to the high pass layer. So what we want to do now is to inverse to the subject and not the background. So we gotta, we gotta select, then we choose inverts. So now I was subject is where we have the focus on. So if I add the layer max to win, now, you see that the high pass is not only applied to my subject, and the foreground remains as blurb. So if I do this, this is the before, and if I add it, you see that it picks up on some level of detail that we didn't have before. And the hair, you get, the highlights pop a little bit more. And so this is what you can do to spruce up any image that you have. So this brings us to the end of this lesson. I want you to download the practice and practice and Hansen this photo or you can even use your own image. See you in the next lesson. 31. HOW TO DESIGN GRADUATION INVITATION CARD PHOTOSHOP Part 1: Welcome to this lesson. So in this lesson, I'm going to touch on how to bring in an image, how to use the gradient tool. And then we're also going to touch a bit about texts and how to create a transparent texts. So without much, I do. Let's get started with this. So the first thing we're going to do in order to create this graduation invitation card is to select the right canvas size. So to do that, we are going to go to file and you want to click on New, and then we want to change our pixels two inches. How about dimension? We want to keep this at ten. And then for our height, we wanna keep it at seven. You also want to make sure your resolution is at 300 Coulomb mode as RGB. And we are going to click create. The first thing is to create a gradient. Now, I will have a separate lesson where I go in depth on how to use the different options that are available to you when you want to create a gradient effect. But for this class, I'm just going to show you basically where to get the gradient tool to apply. So we can either go to our adjustment right-click and the option is given you and then you can just click on gradient. And you realize that a window pops up button. A gradient effect is also applied to your Canvas. So if this is all that you want, you can just click OK. But if you want a different color and if you want a different type of gradient effect, you won't have to change a few things. So we're going to double-click on our gradient. Another window pops up. Now, this window is your gradient editor, allows you to edit your gradients. So to change the color, you want to click on your stop. You click on it once, and then you double-click on your color, and then you can change it to whatever color you want. So we want almost like a deeper blue, which is similar to that school color. And then I'm going to click OK. Now notice that the far right, you have another stop. You can change the color. Now, that color is basically transparent, so you realize that you are starting from a solid color to a transparent color. So we can double-click inside and change the color to match this exact color. Not much. You can basically use your eyedropper to pick the closest to the far end of that color. And it will pick it close enough to that color, gonna click OK. Now the next thing that I want to show you that you can do is that you can change the angle, click any way in the angle circle. If I want to create a 45, I can just click. And then you see that as I move it, it gives me different angles. But if I want, let's say a 45, I can just type in 45 and it gives me on the angle. If I wanted to be a little bit more vertical, you can just use your mouse to click and you get the direction that you want. I can also double-click in here for the skill and I can increase the scale. So as you increase the scale, you get just a little of the color. If I want more of the color, I just want to scale back. If you want more of your color, showing. The other alternative is double-click on your gradient. So you're gonna click on your stop and move it this way. Move the top 1-2. And notice that as I move both the top and the bottom, the color gradient begins to move and shift. So if you have something like this and you're satisfied, you wanna click OK. We can come back to the scale and increase this a little. We can type in, let's say a 100. So we have a very even good spread. We're going to click, okay, so the next thing that we want to do to complete our background is to bring a background image. So you go to your folder and then you want to drag and drop. You can either drag and drop, and here it will show up in your folder for you. And you can go ahead and then you can rescale with your transform activated. Now the question is, what if I want this under my gradient? All you need to do is move the layer two, bottom layer. And basically just with that, you get your gradient on top of your background. So we have something like this. I'm gonna double-click and then I'm going to change the color. We want a little bit more of the blue edge effect. So we're going to do something like this. I'm gonna click OK and then click OK. This is basically how you can apply your gradient effect onto your image or your background design. So this brings us to the end of this lesson. 32. HOW TO DESIGN GRADUATION INVITATION CARD PHOTOSHOP Part 2: Welcome back. So in this lesson I'm going to show you how to bring in a subject, crop the subject and put an outline around your subject. So to do that, we want to go back to our folder and we're going to drag and drop our image. And then we're going to pick our marquee tool. This time we want to pick our Eclipse. And you want to just draw a circle around your subject like this. So this is what we want to crop, everything else we want to get rid of. Use your Marquee to right-click Create a Copy, and then we can ten of the original. So we are going to click on this and we are going to go ahead and rescale like that. So from here, if we want to go ahead and add, let say, an outline around our subject, the easiest way is to double-click on that layer and your Layers panel, the layers Stout comes up for you. Now you want to click on stroke. Once you click on stroke, you're gonna double-click inside. You wanna change the color to white. And as you can see, you can already see the stroke effect. Now we're going to click OK. We want our stroke effect to be a little bit bigger. You have two ways of doing it. You can just increase the size this way, or you can go ahead and type it n and both ways work. So with that, we also want to add a drop shadow. So I'm gonna click on my drop shadow, you see or drop shadow effect. I'm going to double-click so we can change it a little bit. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to increase my size. Now when you increase your size, it gives you almost like a blurred shadow is not as sharp shadow. So notice that if you want very Blair shadow effect, you have to increase your size and that will give you that look. And I'm going to go ahead and increase that a little bit more. And I'm going to decrease my spread like that. And I'm going to go ahead and click OK. Now, notice that we don't see our shadow that well. So I'm going to click on my gradient and I'm going to reduce the opacity on that. So I have something like this. I'm going to double-click on my gradient. I wanna change the color to the color hair shirt. So I'm gonna double-click and then I'm going to click on my stock color, double-click the color, and we're just going to use a color picker to pick that exact color is a little bit too much, so I'm going to bring it down. So we have something more like this, which looks very good. And I'm going to go ahead and click OK. This brings us to the end of this part of our lesson. 33. HOW TO DESIGN GRADUATION INVITATION CARD PHOTOSHOP Part 3: So in this lesson, we are just going to add a few fonts to our invitation card to complete it. So the first thing I want to do is to add graduates on the bottom. So I'm gonna go ahead and select my Text tool. I want my text to be white, so I'm gonna click on my foreground and background default is going to set that for me. I'm going to click are ones to get a wide on top. And I want to use this font is a script Tina. I'm gonna click that and I'm going to click somewhere here. And I'm going to type in graduate. And then with my move tool, I'm going to rescale and set it some way here, just like that. And then what I want to do is I want my text to be above. It looks like my text is behind my subject. So to bring it above, you wanna go to your Layers panel. You want to move that to the very top. And now if I put it on top, you can see that my text is actually on top of my image. Of course, you can see it well, but we want to add a drop shadow. So I'm going to double-click and then just add a drop shadow. The drop shadow effect is too much for me. So I'm going to double-click and you can reduce it or you can increase it to what about preference that you want? And I'm just going to click Okay, so just know that this is preference, preference base. So I have something like this. Now, the other thing that I want to do is that I feel that my bottom is too much. I want my width of the flyer to be a little bit smaller because right now it looks too wide. So the easiest way to do is click on your crop tool. And we are just going to scale this up like that, going to double-click. And just by doing that, just crops it for you. So this is another way that you can rescale, your landscape will crop it, or obviously, you can also open it up. I'm going to add the year that this graduate completed and we are in 2020, so well, keep it to 2020. I'm going to select my Text tool and I'm going to type M two. And I'm going to highlight. And I'm going to change the font color to be bus. And with my move tool, I'm going to rescale it like that. And I'm going to move it here like that. And I'm going to leave it when a skill it down just a little. And then I want to move it up. So it's as though is being cut off at the top. And then I'm going to create a duplicate so you can click on your Layer command J to make a triplicate. And that's very easy. And we are going to move that duplicate down here. We are going to use our text to highlight and we're going to make that 0. And then we're going to take down the opacity of that one. You're gonna take it down like that and even go ahead and highlight and change the color to black. We have something like this. If it's too much, we can increase the capacity. So this shows a little bit more. Now we are going to repeat the same thing. We're going to press command J for the two. And we are going to pull that and set that some way here like that. And I'm going to make another duplicates of the same to command J. And we are going to set that here. And I'm going to use my texts highlight. We're going to change that to 0 and we are going to decrease the capacity for that. So we have something like this. And even this one, the middle one, I can still go ahead and reduced capacity of that as well. So we have something like this going on. You can move it farther out. You can just be created. The last thing we want to do before we bring this part of the tutorial to a close, is that we want to enhance our photo. Now to enhance the photo, I've already shown you how to do that. But another quick way to enhance your photo is to select your image. Go to Image Adjustment, click on brightness, contrast, and increase your contrast. You realize that it makes your image pump because it enhances a contrast. Aim your image. So just with that, we are done with your images too dark. You can brighten it. But with this image is already bright, so we don't need to touch bad. I'm going to click OK. And that is it. So this brings us to the end of this portion of the lesson. We are going to move ahead to the next lesson. 34. HOW TO DESIGN GRADUATION INVITATION CARD PHOTOSHOP Part 4: So welcome back. So in this lesson, we are just going to select our text tool. And we are going to go ahead and just begin to type in the rest of the information. So I'm going to type in the university. And then I'm going to move this. I'm gonna set it with my move tool. I'm going to set it up here. And then I want it to have a different styles. I'm going to highlight and reduce, or ticket to books, which is a little bit lighter, but it's not too much. And I'm going to set it right there. And then I'm going to make a copy command J to make a copy, move that down. And then with my highlight, I'm going to change this. And then I'm going to highlight this. And then we want to make this one bolt. So we changed that. And we rescale this because we wanted a little bit more prominent. We're going to set it right there. And I want to highlight and make this blue. So with my eye dropper activator, I can choose any blue around the gradient. I'm going to click OK. And we are just doing a test that looks good. So we are going to go ahead and add the rest of the text. So I'm going to highlight my texts and we are going to reduce our font size to, let's say 14. I'm going to type in the school. And then with my move tool, I'm going to move that and setup right below something like this. And you want to make sure things lined up. So now that we have this, we can go ahead and go, we can go ahead and add the rest of the information. So I'm going to select my Text tool, and this time I want to change my font to geometry. And then I'm going to click and begin to type. So we're going to highlight this and we are going to make that white. I'm going to change the font again. We are going to choose humans five to one. And then I'm going to use my MOOC tool. We're going to move and settle somewhere. Here. You notice that there is a property options available under your property. We can click. And then if we want to decrease the spacing between the top and bottom texts, you want to come down here to where it says a over a. And with your slider under a over a, you can either increase or you can decrease like that. Or you can even type it n, and you get the same thing. And we're going to type our graduates names. So to do that, we are going to click on a text. We already have Command J to make a copy. We're going to move that down. And we are just going to highlight. And we're going to change the name. And I'm gonna go ahead and set up right there. So we have this and then I'm going to go ahead and add the rest of the text. So we're gonna make a copy of this command J. And we're going to move this down. We're going to highlight and changes to the program. With us typed. All I have to do is now moved this and set it somewhere here as looking good. And this is just a very easy way to create your own graduation invitation card. So we are going to go ahead and add the rest of the information in terms of the day the event is being held. So we're going to click somewhere here. And we're going to type in, sorry today. Now, a little trick. If you type in a text and you wanted all cups, but a showing as lower case. You can select that text and then go under your property. And then you see where it says type options. You can double-click on, you can click once on a double t and it will change the lowercase to uppercase. If you have uppercase. And he decided to change it to lower case, as long as when you were typing your cup locks was off, it will default to the lowercase E. If not, you will have to basically type it air. So we're gonna go ahead and rescale this. And we'll set it right there, seven right there. And we want to go ahead and add that day. So we are going to make a duplicate. 35. ASSIGNMENT 4 GRADUATION CARD DESIGN PHOTOSHOP: Hi students, welcome. I'm so excited about this assignment because this is the graduation card invitation assignment. And so I have two images for you. If you're a female, you can use this picture. Or if you're a guy, you can use this picture. And for the background, you can use this or any color of your choice. Or maybe you can use your school colors and you can either choose to use the gold or any background color of your choice. I want you guys to go ahead and recreate that design. You can even choose to use your own graduation photo for the design. I am so excited, I can't wait to see what you are able to come up with. So have fun doing this. C, u, i. 36. How to use shapes - Circles in Photoshop: Welcome to the lesson. So now that we have our canvas resized for us, now, we want to start playing with shapes. So if you go under the toolbar, you see that you have different options for shape. We are going to pick the Eclipse and we want to draw a circle. So I'm just going to draw this cycle. But because my foreground is cyan, is picking on the same color. Now, there are two ways you can change that color. You can go to your field here, change it to red. You can click on this area and also change it. So these are different ways of doing it. And if I want to, let's say much the colour of head dress, I can go here, which brings up the color picker. I can choose from this, or I can come here and choose a color in her dress. And I can click OK, and that will change it for me. If I want a similar color on her lip is the same thing. Double-click, a color picker comes up and I can choose that. Click OK. And there you have it. But I want a very deeper red. So we're gonna go with this. Now, if you wanna rescale your shape, you click on your move. It, activate your shape. And you can go ahead and move it and scale it to whatever size you deem fit. So I'm gonna move this and set it somewhere here. If I want to duplicate the shape, you can do that. You can click on your. So before I move on, I want to go ahead and delete this layer that we created. Now to delete on the Layers panel, there are three ways to delete. I can select, or actually I will say for one way is to just hide that selection so you don't use it. The other way is to make sure that is selected. Click on Delete on your keyboard will tick that off. Command Z to bring it back to show you the other option. So you can right-click and also click on delete. And yes, it will delete that for you, Command D to go back. I can also select that same layer, drag it to the trashcan. And it leads a for me, if I wanted to duplicate this icon, I can click and drag it to the duplicate icon, and it will create a duplicate for me. So if I want to change the color of that duplicate, I can go to my property, double-click and I can, unless you change it to white, if I want to move it, I can just move it this way. But notice that is on top of the red. If I wanted to be below the red, you go to your Layers panel. You want to move that layer below by just clicking and dragging it below that layer. Now, if I want a transparent go through your capacity at the very top and you can move your slider. And that determines the level of opacity that you want. Now what if I want a border or a stroke effect around the y Eclipse? So you can do that by clicking on your layer. Your property bar activates different options for your shape. I can click on my shape, color, the out, and click on the black. But you also want to make sure that you change your pixel size to, let's say five. The higher the number, the bigger the thickness. So if I want a very thin one, I can go with a three or even a one dependent on how much I want it to show. If you don't want it, you have to make sure that your pixels say 0. And everything. This appears, I can go back and add more shapes so I can go ahead and create maybe another shape and maybe change the color to black. And let's say that I want at different opacity. So I can do something like this. If I want the shape to be on top, I can move that up. So I have something like this. Now, if you want to maybe resize your shape, you can just hold it and do that. If you want to laissez stretch your shape, you need to hold down your shift and you can stretch it this way, that way, or that way. So notice that if you want to freely stretch your shape, you need to hold down the Shift. Now if you want it to be proportional, then you let go of your shift key and then you just drag it this way to create your shaped. So I'm going to double-click and I'm gonna set it right. Then. I'm going to take down the capacity a little bit more. And I'm going to make a duplicate. So to make a duplicate, you select your layer, drag it to the plus icon. We have one mode duplicate. I'm going to rescale this to do something like that. And I want to change the color to Leslie wide. So we have something like this. Now that you know how to use the shape of a circle, let's jump into the next lesson where I teach you how to use polygon and also generate the shape of a star from a polygon is going to be very interesting. See you then. Bye. 37. How to use shapes - Stars in Photoshop: Welcome. I'm excited to show you all that you need to know about creating stars. So without much ado, let's jump into this lesson. So to add a star, if you go and that the shapes option, you don't have the option to create a star, but you can create a start from using the polygon tool. Now, if I click on the polygon tool and I'm gonna go ahead and change maybe the color to white. I can go ahead and draw a shape. Well, when I draw the shape, I'm not able to see the shape right now because it's all the way below the red. So if I move it all the way up, you realize that you can now see a shape. So you should know that Photoshop YX in layers. So dependent on what layer is above the ADA, sudden things will not show. So if you want something to show, you need to move that layer to the very top so you can see it above whatever layer you want to keep in the foreground. So if I want to change the color, I can go back to my field. And let's see, I can change it to blue like that. So I'm gonna go ahead and delete this. And I'm going to show you how to create a star. So with my polygon tool activated, instead of just drawing the polygon to draw a star, you want to go to your icon gear. You want to click on star. You wanna make sure you specify how many sides you want. So if I want six star size, I make sure I have that. And then I can draw six star. And you wanna go ahead and change the color to white. If I want a five, I can click, change that to five, and I can just go ahead and draw that. So you can see that this is a very flexible tool that can help you. I'm just going to rescale this and set it somewhere here. So you can create different options. You can even use the same star if I click on my polygon, if I change this to, let's say 20, I can create the same star, but it gives me that it's set. So you can see that you can do so much. You can do so much more with the shape options that are made available to you. So I'm gonna go ahead and just delete this. And I'm going to show you how to basically add a text and also add a shadow effect to your texts. So let's say that you click on your texts tool. You have the option of texts and vertical or horizontal. We want to, we want to choose horizontal, top. I'm going to click inside my canvas. And you wanna make sure your foreground is white or whatever color you want. And you can just begin to go ahead and type. So I type the wet bold with my move tool activated a can go ahead and just rescale into something like this and move it up. You can even set it on the other shape if you want. I'm just going to move it down like that. And I'm just going to move my shape up a little bit more. I'm gonna rescale this. And I'm going to rescale this a little bit more. And I'm just going to go ahead and move my shape up a little and scale it a little bit more, just so we have something like this. So with your shape scale, let's say we want to add a background. Lets say we want to add a shadow to attacks. Very easily. You can do that. So you want to click on your text. You want to double-click on the side of your texts layer, and it opens up the layers panel. Now the Layers panel allows you to add different effects to your texts, such as drop shadow. Or you can even add an outline to your texts. You can add a bevel and Abbas effect and so much more. But for this lesson, we are just going to add a shadow. So let's say we want a different color of the shadow. We can double-click. And you realize that a different option pops up for you to do. So, you can go ahead and even change the color of your shadow. Just double clicking on the color and it opens up the color picker. So with your color picker activated, you can choose whatever color you want and click OK. And you can see that if I move, go just by clicking inside that round circle, my angle options began to change. You can even type it M ego, self, and that you have the disk and the distance is how much spread of a shadow it creates all the spread. It basically gives you a little more distance, is very similar to the spread. So these are all different options you can play with. If you want to increase the size of your spread in terms of your shadow, you realize you can do that with your shape. And this is just a basic way to transform your texts. But I'm going to go in depth on how to use the variables options to enhance your text. So I'm just gonna go ahead and click OK. I'm going to select my shape. I'm going to make sure I change this to five. And I'm just going to draw a shape and change the color to black. And I'm just going to go ahead and draw a few just like that. I'm going to change the color to white. So I can have a little bit more drawn in here. So we have something. Like this, which is very basic to do. Now, the other thing is what if you want to draw a rectangle with rounded edges? Very easily you can go back to your shape. It gives you both options. You can have rectangle with sharp edges or rounded edges. So we're gonna click on the rounded edge and we are just going to go ahead and draw a shape. If you want to take down or pulsating, you can go to your capacity and change it down. You know how to change the color already. You know how to add a stroke effect or a border around your shape. Now, the other thing is what if I want only two sides of mine rectangle, rounded the attitude. I want it to be sharp edges scroll down to more options under your property, you realize that these four icons are showing you the four corners of your shape. Now if I want to change only two sides, you wanna make sure that you on link, make sure that this icon is not grade. If you see this side, it means all the four corners are all linked. And if I change one, it will affect all of it. But if I want just the left side to be round, to be sharp edges and the right rounded edges. You want to make sure you deactivate the link. And we can go ahead and put this at 5050 and turn. And you realize that only a front side is rounded the backside as not. You can move this and set it somewhere here. Or you can even move it feather and it will push it in a little bit more. And if, let's say I want to add a text, I can talk. I can click once on my texts. So I can go ahead and click inside. And then I can just put it in my text. If I want to re-skill, I can click on it and just go ahead and rescale just like that. And you might want to change the color. I can click back on my text tool highlight, and I can click on whatever color I want. And that's it, you know, so this is a basic way to add shapes and even font with a shadow. So I am going to leave a link for you to download this practice bow so you can try on hands at recreating this exact design Senate to me, if you have any questions, you can leave a comment in the discussion and I will respond to that for you. So I will see you in the next lesson, pie. 38. ASSIGNMENT 5 USING SHAPES IN PHOTOSHOP 2020: Hi students. I hope you'll have fun in the class.

In this lesson, I'm going to show you how to create this amazing and cool font effect. So without further ado, let's jump right into less than one or pick our text tool. So I'm gonna choose like a deeper red, like so. And I'm going to click on my texts by Type Tool. And I'm going to click inside my canvas. And I'm going to type in the web fire. So I'm going to highlight and I'm going to change the font style to sparkle. We're going to go down as and we are going to click sparkle. Now, I'm going to put my text here with my move tool. I'm going to scale it. I'm going to move it a little bit more. So we have this big and this is good. So what I'm going to do is that I want to make a duplicate of this Font command J. I'm going to highlight the top one. And I'm going to make that white. And then I'm going to turn that one off. Now, we're going to click on the bottom font. And I want to add a gradient to it. I'm going to double-click on my font. And I want to change my font to a gradient. So I'm gonna click on my gradient layer, double-click inside and click on my gradient color. Now I'm gonna go for a basic, so I'm going to choose from a white to a black. Now, I want to reverse this, but I'm going to add click on my stock 1's, it will activate the color. I'm going to click on the color and I'm gonna choose a red, like so. And then I'm going to click OK for that. And I'm going to click OK. Now I want to reverse the soda red is on top, so we have something like this. And I'm going to go ahead and click OK. Now, now that we have this, we want to attend on the bottom texts. So we're going to right-click and convert this into a shape. We're gonna take the fill all the way to 0. And you wanna make sure that you have selected the pap to selection tool. Now you want to go up to the top. You realize that you have the fill and the stroke option and the stroke. We want to make sure we choose a wide. Now, we want to increase our stroke thickness to something like this is good enough. Now we want to maybe ticket out a little bit more. But you notice that the stroke effect is being done from the middle of your font to the outside and inside. So if we want our stroke effect to be on the outside, you want to click on the Options below and then you want to change the alignment to outside. So everything happens on the outside. Now we're gonna click OK and come out of it. Now the next thing we want to do, I'm going to zoom in a little bit more who we want to add a drop shadow to a stroke. So we want to double-click on our layer. A Layers Panel comes up. Now, instead of adding a drop shadow, which will give us a drop shadow on the area. We want to do that, and we also want to add an inner shadow. So we get an image shadow inside the text itself. We're going to click on enter shadow. And we want to increase that distance like so. We want to increase our past so we can still see it is not showing so well. So we are going to change the angle and notice what happens as we change the angle. It gives us a whole different effect on our font. So you see that it creates this tapped. It gives us a depth effect. I'm gonna increase my stroke a little so that we get that detail on our, on our inner stroke so I can increase it. So we get the step. If you want, you can decrease your size so that even though we get an, the shadow is not too much of a spread. So I have this effect. So guys, this brings us to the end of part one of this lesson. In part two, I'm going to show you how to add a lens flare to your image to make it speckle and pop. So I will see you in the next lesson. Bye. 41. Text Effect with Lense Flare Part 2: Welcome to part two of the text effects with the lens flare. So the next thing we're going to want to right-click and convert our layer into a Smart Object. And we wanna double-click and go into our Layer Style. And this time we want to add a such Teen Lock. And you notice that it adds a bit more of a metallic look. We can double-click inside and we can change our control to double ring over two, just basic ring. And we can just choose between the different options. Now, we can increase our size or our distance to give us that metallic lock that we want. We are just going to go ahead and click OK. Now to finish this off, we are going to add a light sauce. So I'm going to add a new layer, and I'm going to fill that in with black. So I'm going to revise my foreground to black. Pick my paint bucket. I'm going to ping that over and we are going to go to Filter and choose render and lens flare. Now, you want to choose the movie premiere. You can position your light source which ever way you want. I'm gonna keep it very simple. And unlike the size of my light. So at 85%, I'm going to click OK. Now you want to change the blend mode of this to screen. And now you can use your Move Tool and you can move this and set that right here. Now let's say we want to make another light source and put it somewhere else. You can press Command J with that layer selected, we can move that m, set that some way here. So we have these two light source. Now, if you want to add a little bit more, we can create another one. So we're going to add a new layer by clicking on our class icon. Use your paint bucket, fill that n, go up to your filter and choose render. And ten, we want to choose lens flare. Now we can, we can choose a different light source if we want. So I'm going to keep it to something like this. I'm going to click OK. And then I'm going to change the screen, the blend mode to screen like so I'm going to click on my move tool now. I want to basically squashed the slide, so I'm going to hold up my shift and I'm gonna make the flap like so going to move that and I'm going to set that some way here. So let's say I have this lie, but I want it to be a different color. So you want to make sure that layer is selected at go up two images, adjustment, choose hue saturation. Now, you can move your slider to pick whatever color that you want. And you notice that as I do that, it gives me a different color. You can increase the saturation as well. So you get it more deeper. I'm going to click OK. And I'm going to move my light sauce. I'm going to stretch it a little, so I have it a little bit more. Now, if we want, we can make a duplicate of this command J. And I like how it locks, or you can actually move that and set that some way here. So you have another light source right there. Now, the last thing is that you want to add a gradient effect to the background that will add a little bit of a punch. So you want to click on the background image and you want to go to your adjustment, add a gradient. Now, we can just choose this gradient effect, which I think looks really good. Or you can choose to do radon and then we can reinvest it like that and also reduce the opacity, reduce the scale. So we have this effect gonna click on OK. And we are basically done. Now, if you don't want to see the end of your light source, you can click on your Layer max, like so. And you can use your brush tool with your foreground as y. We're going to reduce our brush head. And you can just brush to hide a little of the light so that the areas that you don't want showing up oh, hidden. So you have something like this. Now, if I want another light source for the bottom, I can press on command J, Make a Copy, and even move that over. So I have this sort of look. Now, we can make a duplicate of this light sauce command J. And we can set that also here. Now, if you want to keep it very minimum, you can reduce it or you can do whatever you want. And we're going to scale this down a little. And I'm going to move this and set that right. They're gonna scale it down and set that right there. So we have this lock and I'm just going to zoom in. So you can see, this is really nice. So guys tried this out and like I always say, it would be nice if you can share your final products with me so I can see and also get to see how you are progressing. So enjoy making this and I will see you in the next lesson. Bye. 42. Gold Text Effect Photoshop Part 1: Hi guys, welcome back. This is going to be a very fun and cool effect, which is the gold effect. But I have a few things under my sleeve that I want to show you as well. So the first thing that we want to do is that you want to go ahead and type in whatever text that you want the gold effect to be m. So in this case, I'm gonna type in Oscar. I want to go ahead and bring in the oscar trophy. We want to use that in the middle of a. So I'm going to go ahead and drag this into what can file. I'm going to set it right here. And I'm gonna go ahead and just scale it like this. And I'm gonna move it right here, gonna scale it just a little, and move it right here, like so. And then I'm going to scale this down a little. And then move that here. And I'm gonna move this and move that. And move this down like so. Now I want to go ahead, tick off the background of this. So to tick off the background, you want to click on your quick selection tool. You want to click on select Subject. Photoshop will make a selection around your image. Now, we want to include the bottom, so I'm just going to click on that to include that. And you'll notice that I had my app to selection on. So that's what I've used to add and I'm going to click on my layer max so I can get rate of my background. I want to make a copy of this to put it in a. So to do that, I'm gonna hold down my command, click on the thumbnail for my layer max to make a selection. Now you want to click on the image itself, command C to make a copy, we are going to create a new layer and command V to paste that. Now I can move that one here. And I'm going to go ahead and scale it, make it very tiny. And I'm going to zoom in so we can see this. And I'm gonna scale it down just a little like so. And then I'm gonna pick my rectangular marquee tool. I want to get rid of the bottom this. So I'm going to, I'm going to go ahead and scale this a little bit more. So is set inside. And then with my rectangular marquee tool, I want to make a selection of the bottom of this because I want to cut it off and I'm going to just delete that Command D to D. So I want to cut out the middle portion of the a. So to do that, you want to click on your text, add a layer max. We are going to pick our last two tool and we are going to cut out this area that we don't want. And then with my brush and my foreground as black, we are just going to paint over that area. And you wanna make sure you are on the text layer. I'm gonna press Command D to D select. Now I want to use my last few tool to cut out a little bit of my texts, of my alphabet C, because the C doesn't look quite like the sea I want it to look like. So I want to hide a bit of that portion to, so with my brush, I'm going to pin that n Command D to D select, going to zoom out. Now we have our Oscar. Okay, so now we will go ahead and add a gold effect to this. So before I do that, I'm going to select my texts and my Oscar. I'm gonna select my texts and my Oscar. And I'm going to use my move tool. We're going to increase it just a little like some good and double-click to accept. Now to add a gold effect, we're going to click on our texts, double-click on the site to bring up the latest tau. So the faster we want to do is we want to add a gradient. I'm going to double-click in it so you can see the options that I went with. So you notice that the Blend Mode is on normal. My capacity, I have it at 68, my gradient is a two tone. So if I double-click inside, you see that the fast gradient color is basically f t, f for f, I'm going to click OK. Now the second gradient color, you want to click on your stop and activates that color. You click on it and you notice that the color is C E, C, D, E, C, dy to be, I'm going to click okay. You don't have to stick with these type of colors, but if you want the same effect, then you will do that. And I'm gonna click OK. And notice that my style is linear, my angle is 90, and my scale, I have it at 100. Now we want to proceed and add a bevel effect. So I'm gonna click on my Bevel, go into that. And my style is on Bevel. And a bevel, my technique is chisel hard and my depth, I have it at 120 and then my size is at 45. Oh, my direction is on App. Notice that difference when you switch up, so dependent on what you want, you can just switch it up. My softness, I have kept that at three and my angle is at 71 now with the angle you can move it which ever way you want. So you get a reflection that you desire. Now, when it comes down to the altitude, I have it at 42. Now my contour, I have it at a double ring. And that gives you a very good effect. Now when it comes down to the highlight mode, I have it on screen and opacity is 70. My shadow mode is on multiplying, and my opacity is at 75. So with that said, we want to go ahead and add an inner globe. So if I double-click on my inner glow, you notice that my Blend Mode is on multiply, or passively is on 71. My noise is seven, and I chose a color, I chosen orange. So give it a little bit more of the gold effect. So the orange color is E, F, eight, C16. I'm going to click OK. Now when you come down to my technique, the technique is so often the sauce is centered, not edge. I can choose edge if I want. You see a bit of a different, but I want to keep it on Sauce. Now my chalk is at 18 and my size is at 13. My contour, if you notice, is on linear. So you wanna pay attention to that. And my range is at 50. My guitar, I have it. My range is at 50 and my gender is at 0. So that is it for all the effect that gives you the gold ish look that you want. I'm gonna go ahead and click Okay. So guys, this brings us to the end of this portion of the goal texts effect. Now, we're going to move on to part two and part three. 43. Gold Text Effect in Photoshop Part 2: Hi guys, welcome back. Now we have this amazing luck. And the next thing is, what if I want to add another text on top? Well is very easy. You want to pick a duplicate of your texts. Command J, Mecca, duplicate, bring that down. Use your Type Tool, highlight. And we are going to make that. They're, now you notice that there is a missing piece and it's because we still have our layer max from the Oscar still attached to this. Now to get rid of it, you want to right-click on your Layer, Layer much thumbnail and click on Delete Layer max. You will take it up for you. Now we want to click on our MOOC tool, rescale our texts a little bit smaller. And we want to set that on top of the oscar. So we have something like this. And I'm going to move that down a little. And I want to actually go ahead and move everything down. Now the next thing that I wanted to do is that I want to go ahead and bring in another element to add to this. So I'm going to bring in this book care, and I'm going to rotate it like that. You can hold down your shift while you'd rotate, so you can get it on a 45 degrees. Now, I'm gonna move this and said that on the bottom. And I'm going to go ahead and scale this like that. Gonna double-click. I'm gonna double-click and we want to move this below our image. So I'm going to drag it and bring it below the statue. So we have this now I'm going to pick up my erase the tool. I want to erase a little bit of that. So we have almost like a gradual effect and is almost stops behind the subject or the statute. But this set, we want to go ahead and do something else. I'm gonna make a duplicate of mine. Trophy. I'm gonna press Command J, makeup, duplicate, move that over. I'm going to scale that down a little. Like so. I'm gonna set that behind my subject like that. And then I wanna fade this out. So I'm gonna fade this out like that. And then I want to go ahead and add a filter. So I'm going to go to Filter Blair Geschwind, Blair black ashes Blair. We want to fade our trophy in the background a little. What I wanna do, something like this, so it's not so visible, but at the same time is there. And I'm gonna go ahead and click, Okay, so I'm gonna move this up and select the next one. And then I'm going to right-click, convert this into a smart object. So we just converted it into a Smart object. And I'm going to hold down my shift and we are going to pull this down like so. And then what I'm going to do is that I'm going to take the opacity down and then we want to add a blur effect that will play it out a little. So I'm gonna go to filter up bled caution, Blair. I'm just going to leave it at 3.4, just like that. And then I'm going to go ahead and click okay, so with this set for us, we want to go ahead and move this up a little so it aligns with the bottom of our texts, so we have a very nice reflection. Now, the last thing we wanna do is that you want to add a layer max so that we can gradually fade in our reflection. So I'm gonna make sure my foreground is black. I'm going to go to my bucket and change it to the gradient tool. And I'm just going to hold up my shift and draw a straight line and then keep doing that. So I get this gradual effect of my texts from the bottom up. So we have this cool, nice effect now, you can do it a couple more if you want to fade it in a little bit more. So guys, this brings us to the end of this portion of the gold texts effect. Now, we're going to move on to part two and part three. 44. Gold Text Effect Photoshop Part 3: Hi guys, welcome back.

You wanna go under render and choose lens flare. Now I am using the movie premiere. You can choose whichever light lens you want to use. Now, I'm keeping my percentage at 82. I'm going to click okay. And I am going to change the blend mode to screen. Now, I liked this effect is really nice. So I'm gonna move this and set it right beneath where the S and the reflection of the S means. Now I want to make a duplicate Command J meta duplicate, and I want to move that one and set that right here. So we have a little bit of a possess and a punch effect. Now, the last thing that I want to do is that I want to add a color look up. So I'm gonna click on my top layer and go back to my adjustment and choose a color lookup. Now, we want to go to our property and change the color lookup to 3h trip, luck. And guys, this is what we have. This looks really good. Now, if the light source is too much, you can basically take down or possibly of your color lookup. So you still have a very nice effect. I'm gonna zoom out. I'm gonna zoom in so you can see the entire thing. So this is a, now, if you don't like the white things that are sticking out, you can basically erase it or hide it a little bit or reduce your, your light source so you don't have that showing that much. All you can choose a different lens. But I like this effect, effect we have now, if you don't want the blue showing up, you can add a layer max and you can basically, if I add a layer max to this, I can erase this area so it doesn't look as total light is falling on my subject. I can reduce this a little If I Fell is too much, but this is a very cool and nice effect. So guys, this brings us to the end of this lesson. I will really like to see how yours turned out.

So in this lesson, I'm going to show you how to create a chrome effect on this jaguar symbol and the text. So the Jaguars symbol is on a different layer. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to right-click and convert that into a Smart Object. Now we're gonna double-click and then we want to add a color overlay. So if you go into your color oh, Valley, you notice that the blend mode is normal, opacity is at 100 and we are going to add a bevel and embossed. We are going to click on it so that we can basically see what else we need to do. So I'm gonna click on that, Bevel and boss. And we are going to change the spout to enter Bevel. And I'm gonna keep the technique too smooth and depth. We are going to increase that to 600 and we are going to keep our size to 40, like so. We're gonna type that n and I'm going to keep my softness to five. Now with this set, we want our angle to remain at 120 altitude. We wanted at 30, and we want to change our contour to linear. Now with this set, you notice that the highlight mode is screened and a 75 and the shadow mode is multiply and is also 75. So we're gonna click OK. And we are going to right-click again and convert to a Smart Object. We're gonna go back to our layer style and a bevel and embossed click on it. And now we want to change the spout to outside. We still gonna keep it on smooth. But the depth, we are going to take it all the way down to 100. And then we want to leave it on App about size. We're going to reduce it all the way to seven. And we are going to keep our soft tonight at 0. Now, you want to make sure your angle is that 120, altitude 30. Now the contour, we wanna change it to the double ring effect. Now we're leaving our highlights mode and our shadow mode on both the screen and multiplied and the boat 75 each. Now we want to go ahead and add an inner globe. Now with the inner glow, we wanna make sure our Blend Mode is on screen and our capacity we have at somewhere around 75, like so. And then you want to make sure that the color is white. So if it's not white, you wanna make sure you click on the white. And you basically want to make sure that it's completely white color. And we are going to keep our sauce. Edge and the technique will still be soft. Now for your choke, you wanted a ten and your size, you want it at seven. Now when it comes to the control, we're not going to change it will leave it on linear. And notice that my range, I want to keep it on 50 and I am going to go to my gradient. We want to add a gradient. Now, we're going to double-click on our gradient and we are keeping a blend mode on Color Dodge. Now notice that my capacity is at 62 and my gradient, I haven't three to tone. I have a black or white in the middle and black on the ABA m. So you want to move your white to the middle and the black, we wanna hold down your Option, make a copy and move that all the way to the end. So we have these three tone and we're gonna go ahead and click OK. My Linnaeus, my style is on linear and my angle is 90, and I'm going to keep my scale to 100, like so. And with that said, we want to or we can take it all the way up. So we have something like this. Now, you can move the angle to which ever direction that you want. Now we are going to go ahead and add a drop shadow. Now with my drop shadow, the blend mode is multiply and my past study, I'm going to keep it at about 50 and then my angle stays at 120 and then my distance 14, my spread thorough and my size will also be 14. Now my control, I'm going to leave it like that and I'm going to click OK. Now you see that this is not really bad, still has the cone effect, but we change our background to black. You see that a pops a little bit more. Now we want to finish it off by adding a current adjustment. So we're gonna click on adjustment at a curve. Now you want to clip, you wanna festival move that all the way up to the top. And you want to clip it to the, the image. So you want to hold down your Option and clip it like that. So all the changes you make will only affect that layer and not the background. Now, we're going to just try and move our slider, our Curves Adjustment up and down to see the effect that it gives us. So we're going to try and do something like this and also bring this down. So I have a chrome effect. Now the last thing we wanna do is that we want to add a light effect. So we are going to go, we are going to add a new layer on top with a paint bucket and a foreground as black. We're gonna paint that n. And we are going to move. We're going to go through the layer and then we are going to select a paint bucket. We're going to paint that n. Now we want to go to a Filter Render, and we're going to choose lens flare. Now, I wanna use this lens flare and it's at 82%. I'm going to click OK. And we are going to change the blend mode to screen. So we have this cool effect. Now I'm gonna move this light source and put it right on, on the top of my jaguar. Now I want to make a copy, so I'm going to hold down command J, Make a copy. Now moves this light sauce and put it somewhere here. So we have these two light source and it makes our chrome effect look really nice. Now, we're going to finish it off by adding a color lookup. I'm going to click on my adjustment at a color look up. And we are going to go into our property and change that to reach trip. And I'm going to zoom out. Now, you see that we have this cone like text and clone like Jaguars symbol. So guys, this brings us to the end of the lesson. I hope that this was very helpful. I know that is a little bit tricky when trying to apply the quote effect using your curves. But just play with it, you know, and just massage it a little bit here, nodule here a little, and just move around your curves till you get the desired effect that you want. So guys, I will see you in the next lesson. Bye. 46. Transparent Text Photoshop: Welcome back. So what this particular lesson, I'm going to show you how you can create a transparent texts effect. So we wanna festival at a solid color on top of a background. So I'm gonna go to my adjustment and add a solid color. Now, we want to change the solid color to blue color. I'm going to click OK. And we want to take down the opacity so we can still see a subject and the background. Now I'm going to pick my text tool and oh, my tied to I'm sorry. And I'm going to type into wed bold. And I'm going to use my move tool. We're going to move it and set it right there. And I'm gonna go ahead and scale it like that. And then I'm going to go to my property. And then I want to make this all in caps. I'm going to reduce it a little. So we have something like this. I'm gonna go ahead highlight. And I'm going to change this font to be buzz. And I'm going to make that bold. So we have this effect. Now. I'm going to change the solid color. We are going to make it a little bit more on the purple side, like so. I'm gonna click OK. And I wanted to take the capacity up just a little so we can still see us subject, but we have to focus on our font. So the next thing that we want to do is before we create the transparent font, we want to open up our text a little. So I'm gonna go back to my property and that VA, you want to use your mouse to just move the slider, create that space. And so we want to go ahead and right-click on our layer and convert our text to a shape. Now notice that everything has been selected for us because we have our Pat select tool. Now, you want to take the film or the weights to 0. Now you notice that even though the text looks like as missing, we can still see our outline. You wanna go up to the top of your menu bar and where it say stroke, we wanted to change the color to white. And notice that we can begin to see the outline because the stroke thickness is one pixel. Now, we can increase it a little if we want to have maybe something like this, or you can actually type it ends. So let's say we do too. We have testing effect. Now, if we want our stroke effect on the outside, you want to come to your alignment and sort of Showing your stroke effect on the enzyme. You'll want to click on that one. And it will show our stroke effect on the outside. Now, if you want to your corners to be shot, you can do. You can choose that now if you wanted beveled, you have that option as well. We are going to click out of this. So we have this effect. Now, if you want to also ten on your other texts, you can, and we can even reduce the opacity of that. Oops, we wanna make sure we select that font and we can reduce the opacity. So we have something of this effect. So you can still see that you have your texts, which is faintly showing, and then we have our outline. Now the next thing we can do is that we can click on our outline. We can go into our layers tau, and we can add a shadow. Now, the shadow is too much so you want to double-click on the shadow and you want to reduce the distance. We want to keep it very minimal. And you want to also increase the spread. And you want to decrease the size. So we have it very sharp. And I'm gonna take the shadow distance back a little. And I'm going to increase capacity. So we can see about shadow effect showing very well. We can decrease our size so that our shadow effect a sharp AND NOT Blair. And I'm gonna go ahead and click OK. We have this effect now, if we want, we can even highlight our font. And then we can change the color. We can go for a more bright purple or pink like so I'm going to come out of it. So you realize that this font is showing, but it's not too much. But as I increase it, you can begin to see the difference between the background and the font, which is also transparent. So you can either go with a completely transparent, with an outline, or you can have your double texts and make that into a transparent. So if you want to finish off your font texts effect, and you want to give it a little bit more of a punch, you can add a color lookup. So we can click on the top layer, goes through your adjustment at a color lookup. Now, you want to change the Colombo cup to any of these options. You can choose a teal, and this is the effect that you get. Now, you can even go back and choose something of the fall color. So you have a more of a finished touched or you can choose this. You can choose either the film or you can choose the teal. So this brings us to the end of the lesson on transparent texts. I will see you in the next lesson. 47.

So I'm just going to zoom out a little so we can see the effect. And I'm going to reduce my splash. And I'm gonna do something like this. And here as well, we're going to increase and do this and this area as well. So this gives your image a very cool effect. It is not just a basic image applied to your font. So guys, I hope that this was fun. I mean, I know this is different. So you don't have to do everything. You can just choose to do this area and maybe that area.

Now you can take more time to clean it up. So with this selected, you want to pick your brush tool. And we are going to flip our foreground to black because we want a high when it comes to lay a max. And we're going to paint over to hide that Command D to D select. Now, I'm going to get my brush again, reduce my brush and paint over this area. You can see there's a little white line that is left. So we're going to clean it up like this. The next thing we're going to do is we're gonna pick our type tool and we want our foreground to be white. And I'm just going to type in the alphabet b. And with my move tool, I'm gonna set it somewhere here. And I'm just going to scale it like that. And I'm going to set that bit loan. I'm gonna go ahead and scale it just a little bit smaller. And we are going to set this right below our subject, like so. And I'm just going to scale it just a little bit more. We're going to move this below, so is right, we need a subject like that.

And you realize that the mouse icon changes to a down arrow. Now you can click that, clip your image to the texts. Now, if you want to show a little bit of your subject, you can hold down command maker to make a copy of your thumbnail for your layer max. Now click on the thumbnail for your image. Press command C to make a copy and a new layer and press command V to paste it. Now we want to hide some portion of it. So we're going to add a layer max to our Layer, press command i to inverse it so everything is hidden. But we're going to pick up our brush tool with a foreground as why. We want to go ahead and reveal some areas like the face. So you want to make sure your brush has been activated. So to increase your brush head, click on your left bracket on your keyboard to increase it. Now, we can paint over to reveal some areas. So we want to basically reveal all the front part of our subjects, like soul. So we have this and we have to be in the background. So guys, this is a, now if you want to move this aspect feather, you can actually double-click on your, on your text layer. You can add a drop shadow, so it gives you this effect. And you can also add a stroke effect. But notice that the stroke effect is only being applied to your font and not your image. So in order not to do that, if you wanted to show on all of it, we're going to click cancel and I'm going to show you what to do. So you want to make a duplicate of the entire thing. So you want to click on your top layer. You want to select every thing, a subtree of bottom. You can make a duplicate by dragging it to the plus icon, right-click. And we're going to match these layers. So we can double-click. Now, go to our Layers panel. We can add a stroke. Now notice that is been added to everything. Now if we want to increase our stroke, we can just do that. Now you can even go a step further. We can add a drop shadow like that. We can double-click on a drop shadow and we can increase our shadow. So we have something like this. You can decrease the capacity of your shadow. So you have this effect. So we can go ahead and increase our shadow if we want, and reduce our shadow effect. So it's not too much. So guys, this brings us to the end of this lesson. I hope that this was very helpful to you.

And I'm going to go ahead and revise my foreground color to white. And I'm gonna pick my type tool or my Text Tool. And I'm going to type in the wet flies. And with my move tool, I'm going to just go ahead and scale it like so. And then I'm going to set it in the middle like this. Now to create the slicer effect, we are going to pick our lasso tool and we're going to make a diagonal like this. And I'm going to cut the top piece like that. And then I'm going to make sure I'm on my text layer. I'm going to add a layer max and it will basically high the lowest portion. So I'm gonna go ahead and make a copy of my text command J, Make a copy. And then I'm going to click on my top image command i to inverse it. If I move it down and I shifted, you see that I have a slice and texts effect. Now, you can even take it a step further and add a little bit of punch to it. So what I'm going to do is that I'm going to add a new layer and I am going to. So once you make a new layer, you want to click on your top image command. You hold out your command and select your thumbnail. Now, we want to pick our brush and we wanna brush below the top texts. But what I wanna do is I want to take my flow down a little. Now.

So guys, this brings us to the end of this lesson. And I will really like to see your version of the slide and texts effect. So when you are done, you can share with me in skill share and I can take a look at it. So with that said, let's move on to the next lesson where we lend another cool font effect. 50. Text Behind in Photoshop: Welcome back. In this lesson, I'm going to show you how you can put a text behind a subject. So if we pick our text tool and we type into wed, beautiful. And then we use our Move tool. We can go ahead and scale it like that. And we can highlight and then change our font, will change our font. And we will go ahead and we scale. So we get our font as big as we can, like. So. And then I'm gonna go ahead and I'm going to highlight. And then we're going to change a font color to like cyan blue. And I'm going to click out of it. So to put us subject in the background, we need to first of all make a selection of us subject. So I'm going to turn off the layer and click on mine background image. Pick your quick select tool and click on select subject. Now we see that our subjects has been selected for us. So the next thing we're going to do is that you want to click on your selected area and we want to go ahead and inverse. So select inverse it. So once we have that inverse, if we click on our text layer and we click on layer Max, you basically have your text and the background of your subject now. And when you do something like this, you can still go ahead and skill, but notice that becomes a destructive font and you really can't move your texts any more. But there is another way that we can do this, that we can still be able to move our text if we want. So the other alternative, i'm going to ten this off. Now, you want to make a copy of your background command J, Make a copy. Now we want to select the second copy with our select, with our quick select tool, we want to select a subject. Now with this one, we want to add a layer max. So now if you add a layer Max, ten of the background, you see that we have the subject without any background. Now, when you ten bucks on your texts, we can move this subject above our texts. Like so. So now we can basically manipulate and move this text down. This is a nondestructive way to add a text to the background of a subject. Now, the alternative was a destructive way, so you don't want that option. But if you want something very quick and you are set with the position of your texts, you can go ahead and do that. So I hope this was helpful. I want us to move on to the next type of font that we are going to create. So I will see you in the next lesson. Bye. 51. How to place a text behind the subject: In this but the Columbus and I'm going to show you how you can put a text behind your subject. So I'm gonna pick my text tool and type in the wed yoga. And I'm going to go ahead and rescale it. And notice that I'm using B bas font. You can use any font of your toys. I'm going to rescale. And I'm going to set it somewhere like so. So aligns with the mat, the floor. So to let the Tech Show behind the subject, we are first going to click on our texts and add a layer marks. Now what our layer map tasks is that it helps to hide or reveal any thing and Photoshop. So to hide something, you will have to use the color black to reveal you used whites in order to apply the layer max to hide a portion of a text, we need to select our subject layer fast. And then without Quick Selection tool, we are going to click select subject. And Photoshop is going to cut out the subject. For us. We are going to click on our layer max. And then with a foreground as black and as I told you, black height. So we're going to pick up our brush and we are just calling paint over. But notice that we can see the brush head because our catalogs is on. Once you turn of your catalogs, you can see the head of your eraser. You can see the head of your brush. So now we can go in. Oops, we need to click on our layer Max. Then we can go ahead and erase everything so that we can see our subject in front and our texts behind. So in this image, you can see that the text is behind the subject. This is one alternative. The second alternative is more of the optimistic side. You want a portion of the text to weave through the subject. So in the next section, we are going to see how we can be a little bit more creative and artistic. If you want to have a bit of, lets say this leg, we want the leg to go through the O and come out on the other side. We can do that. And also we are going to hide this piece of our subject. So in order to do that, we are going to Festival at a layer max to our texts and then go back to background image with our Quick Selection Tool, which is this one quick select tool. We can click on select Subject and Photoshop will cut out the subject for us. Now, if we want to hide some cautions of our text, we will have to make sure we are on the layer Max. And with the layer max, black height, white reveals. So we wanna make sure our foreground as black. We're gonna pick our paint brush. And we going to paint in this area. So that it says DO I, one leg is going through, is going through the text. And then for the top piece, we are going to leave that, we're not going to hide that. And then for the front, we want to get rid of this and just show what is in the back. So I have to do I have to decrease my brush heads so I don't paint this area. So I'm just going to reduce my brush hat. And I'm just gonna gently cut, oh, erase this portion. So if I press Command D and IDs select. So you see that this is a very cool effect. You basically have your text that is we then in the front and behind your subject. And this is a very easy trick to do. If you want your text to be behind your subject in an artistic way. Let's say we want to change the color of our text is very easy to do since we have converted our text into a smart object. So you can still select your text. You can double-click and we can actually change a color like that. And there you go. Very simple and easy to do. So I hope this was very helpful. Download the file link below and try your hand at this. I will see you in the next video. 52. Text wrap in Photoshop: In this lesson, I'm going to show you how you can weave a font around a subject. So we are going to go ahead and choose our type tool. And we are going to type in ballet. And I'm going to highlight, and we want to make it all lowercase a set, the first one. And I am going to go ahead and also space it out with my VA, going to space it out just a little like that. And we are going to go ahead and scale it like this. And I'm going to set it in the middle. So the first thing that we want to do is we wanna cut out our subject so that we put our text in the background. We wanna click on our image and we want to go ahead and make a duplicate Command J to make a duplicate. Now, we want to turn off our texts and we want to select the top copy of our background image. So we wanna click on our quick selection tool and we wanna make sure that we have our layer selected. We're going to make a selection. Now we go into, the selection is not perfect, but it's good enough. We're going to zoom in. And I'm just going to decrease my brush. And with my plus selection, I'm just going to go ahead and quickly make a few more selection around the edges of a subject like so. I'm going to go ahead and zoom out like this. We're going to add a layer max. So I'm gonna click on my layer max. Now, I want to bring my texts need. When I turn it back on, we have our subject in front and our texts in the background. So now the question is, what do I want to go ahead and click on our layer max. We want to hide a bit of the subject in the background. So I'm going to press on command and select my Text layer. And we are going to pick our brush tool. And with my foreground as black, we know that black height, white reveals. I am going to reduce my brush head by pressing down on my left bracket. Going to reduce it a little bit more. And I'm going to go ahead and hide this area. So as dole had leg is just going behind the a and we're going to leave this area like that. And we are going to leave this goes like this going from the pack and it's coming in front. Let's say that I want to weave. So we're going to act as dual. The ham is going behind the L from the top. So we are going to go ahead and hide that. So it's as though and Han is the back. Now, we want to also go ahead and clean this area. So it says DO his leg is behind the L and the hand is in front. So I'm going to also go ahead and zoom in. And we're gonna pretend that had leg is behind. So I'm going to zoom out and I'm going to go ahead and erase this portion of his leg. I hope that this was helpful and this is something that you are going to try. And oh, by the way, I'm going to have all of these images available. So if you want to use this particular image, it will be of attachment for you to download and practice. And guys, I will really like to see all any of the works that you have been able to recreate.

And I'm going to make sure my foreground as black. And I'm just going to go ahead and type in gradient. And we are going to use our MOOC tool. And we are going to just go ahead and skill this like so like that. And we're just going to set that in the middle, add a gradient effects to the text. We are going to double-click on our text layer. The layer style comes up. Now we can click on gradient, and we can click on the gradient. Tab will open up another window. Now, we wanna click on the color. And we want to go into all of these options that are available to us. We want to pick something in the pink. So we are going to click on this or that. It gives us a gradient effect. We can choose a red if we want. So we have this cool effect. Now these are all settings that have been done already in Photoshop that we can use. Now, if I want to even create a lot more of color in my gradient, I can hold down my option and then make a copy and slide that over. And then I can make another copy and are my option and slide that over. Now what I can do is I can change this color and I can change, or I can move this over into something like this. So we have different effect. If I don't want this, I just drag this down so that goes away. Now I can click on the black and change that to, let's say a blue. Choose that blue if I want something like this. And then I'm gonna change this blue does Black also to like a blue color. So we have something like this. And you can play with different effect or sliders. You can move it in and out to give you the effect that you want. I'm going to click OK. Now, if this is something that you like, you can do it, but this is just to show you that you can customize your gradient to whatever you want. But this is just too much. So I'm going to double-click and go back to the purple. And we are going to choose the default of this, choose the default of that. So I'm gonna go to the red and choose the default of this, which is much better. I'm gonna click OK. And you can also change the direction of your gradient. You can do this to give you different effect. It all depends on what you want. Now, I'm gonna do something like this, like the effect. So this is just different options that you can choose from. Now, I can go ahead and also increase my scale of my gradient or reduce it. And you see what is happening as I reduce it, I basically get three defined areas of my gradient. But as I open it, you realize that the boundary between the three colors transitions very smoothly. So this is just different things you can do with the different options that have been provided for you. So I'm gonna go ahead and click OK. Now if I want to add a shadow effect, I can do that. I can go back into my gradient or add a pebble. So it gives me almost like a 3D effect. I can increase my sides. So I have something like this. And it looks really nice. You can even add a stroke effect if you want. We can change that to white. But the white means it will not show. So we can keep it on black. Now if I do the black, we can see it on some areas. So I'm gonna click OK and increase the outline. So we have this cool effect and I'm going to click Okay, so guys, you see that even though the gradient looks like a very basic effect to add, you can add a bubble to make it more 3D ash and very nice. And you can add a stroke or you can even add a shadow effect. So this brings us to the end of this lesson, how to create a gradient texts effect. I will see you in the next lesson. Bye. 54.

I'm going to click, okay, and I'm going to use my paint bucket. We're going to fill that in. But we don't want that color on every part of the eye. So we're going to press Command D. So to get rid of some portion of the color, I want to add a layer marks now the layer max helps you to hide and reveal. And since I'm not sure how much I want to embrace, I want to use the layer, the layer max in case I take up too much and I want to put it back. I'm going to select my brush tool with my foreground black and just know that with layer max black height, white reveals. So since I want to hide, I want to make sure my foreground is black. I'm going to increase my brush head a little. By Preston on my right, my right bracket on my keyboard to enlarge my brush head. And I'm going to do something like this. I'm going to add a layer Max. And without layer MAC selected, I'm going to clean of this area. I'm going to change my blend mode for that to overlay. Now you notice that all valet mix it a little bit more intense. If it's too much, I can take down the opacity and do something like this. If you want, a totally different color is the same thing. So I can go back and choose the blue that we started with, something like this. And then with my paint bucket, i can fail that. N sold to practice. I want you to download the file for this lesson and go ahead and practice changing the eye color. How fun doing it, and see you in the next lesson. 55.

So you want to click on your image. Then you want to use the quick action to take off the background. Oh, you can use the quick select tool, select subject, and it will do the same thing. That is if you use an older version, but if you own Photoshop 2020 or 21, you can use the quick action. You want to click on the quick action and it will show remove background. So you want to click on that. Once you click on that, Photoshop basically takes off the background. Now, the newer version of Photoshop, that's a very good job with us selection. And some cases you might have to go in and use your layer max technique to either reveal or high seven areas. Once you have your background removed, we want to add a new solid background. So I'm gonna click on my adjustment and I'm going to add a solid color. Now, I want to choose something in the range of a sigh dam like that. And the color is 08 D2D. I'm gonna click OK. Now I'm going to move this layer beneath our subject layer. And the next thing that we are going to do is that we want a ten hour subject layer into a black and white image. So I'm gonna click on that layer. And I'm going to add an adjustment level, which is black and white. Now this is a nondestructive way to change your colored image into black and white. We are going to hold down our options and we're going to click OK. Now, if I changed my mind and I want my images backend color, all I have to do is turn off the visibility and I have my original image.

So I'm going to click on Options and clip it. Now when you clip your adjustment, it only clips to the layout beneath. And with this Levels adjustment, we want to move in the slide as. And notice what happens to our image. You begin to get some richness and the blacks and the dark tone areas. So we want something like this. You can take it a step further. But I think this is good.

We wanna change the blend mode of death to lighten. So we have this two tone effect. Now, if you want to change the color, you can go ahead and do it to get the desired effect that you want. And this is a very good way to change color. I prefer to use it in solid color instead of creating a new layer and using the paint bucket to fill in. Because whenever you need to change the color, you have to do more steps. But with a solid color is easy to change your cover in a split second, you see the changes you make. And so not that we have this all set, I just wanna add one more thing to just finish up our artwork. So I'm going to pick my Type Tool and I want to type in the web bold. I'm gonna use my MOOC tool and I'm going to hold one end to drag it. Now when you click on your Move Tool and you don't see these activations of the squares, you need to make sure that your auto transform in your show transform is checked. Your auto select and show Transform controls at checked that when, whenever you click on an image, it allows you to be able to rescale it. Now, we want to move this layer and set it above the solid color. And I'm now going to go ahead and scale it like that. Now I'm showing you wonder why a portion of my texts is being blocked. And it's because Adam still I have my layer clips, so I have to onclick, hold on new options and then clip to or click to onclick. Now, we can go ahead and rescale. You can go ahead and reduce our paucity of the font so it acts as DOW. You can see a subject enter background. And so guys, we're done. If you are able to create this effect and you want to show it, share it with me. You can post it in skill share in the cost section so I can take a look at it. So I will see you in the next lesson. 59. COLORIZED PHOTO IN ADOBE PHOTOSHOP 2021: Hi, welcome back. To show you how to transform your black-and-white photo, or a black and white of your mom or your dad, a colored image. So in other to tend as black and white image into coloured, There is one thing that I recommend that you do and that is for the scan is very difficult to match the skin color. So the best thing to do is to find an image of a skin color that you want to match. So what I did was I pulled in another image of tan color that I am right. I'm going to use my eyedropper tool. I'm going to click on my paint and then I'm going to just pick a color so you can pick whatever color that you want. So I'm going to pick this darker area of Scan. I'm gonna close that and I'm going to go back to my image. To start off, you want to Festival makes sure that you go down to your adjustment levels. And you want to click on solid color. And I'm gonna click okay, so we have our skin color. And what I'm going to do now is that you want to click on layer max that is generated. Once you create a solid color, you wanna hold down Control and press IY on your keyboard. Now that layer max is inverted. So the only way that you will see the color now is if we reveal it. And how do we do that? You want to pick your brush tool. You want to make sure your foreground is white. Now, always know that white reveals black height. We want to do one more thing. You want to go to your Blending Options. And we're gonna change the Blending Options to color. And now we are going to paint. And now when you paint, you realize that very natural color that shows up. So I'm just going to paint over the eyes for now. We are going to paint over to hide the color in the, I am gonna do the same thing for this area. But as we go close that so their hair and other areas, you wanted to decrease your brush head, your paint brush head, and then just gradually paint in between. So now that we have this, I'm going to zoom in so that we can get rid of areas at we painted that we shouldn't have. So you wanna pick back your paint bucket, the paintbrush. You want to flip your foreground to black. And you want to use that to pain. And as I said, a black height. So as U inverse your foreground color to black. When you paint, it then becomes too high. We wanna paint this area as well. So now that we have that, we want to also make sure that we take the color out of the eyes. And we're gonna do the same thing for this area as well. K. So now you're wondering How about areas around the hair. So to do those areas, we are going to increase our brush just a little. And you wanna make sure that your flow, you take flow down. So we wanna make sure that our foreground is y. And we are going to paint and notice that you get that color bleeding through the hair, but is not so much that it says DO you painted over the hair? And now we're gonna do this area as well. So as you can see, you can see that skin color bad. It's, it's not too much in terms of the color. So this looks really good. You know. So I'm gonna zoom out so we can see and oh, my mouse is not working and to get a new mouse so I can easily zoom in and out. So the next thing that we want to do is now color the background before we covered the shirt. So we want to go back to our adjustment and pick a solid color. And this time we want a green. So we're going to go form like a forest green, something like this. I'm going to click OK. And then we want to change the blend option to color. And we wanna click on our layer max. Hold out your control, and then click on I to invert it. And we're going to pick our pain bucket and we're going to increase our crush head. You wanna make sure that a flow is a 100. And we're going to increase the brush head. And we're just going to paint over this area. And as we go, as we get closer to the subject and the hair, we are going to change about branch head so we don't paint over the hair. So now I'll show you wondering how are we going to do that green area behind the head. So this is where you want to reduce the flow. And now watch when I paint over. So you can see that you still get the greenery effect, but it's not so dark as ones at the edge. So you can still see the hair coming through. Of course, you are going to have a little bit of the greenery on the hair. But then when we add the color to the hare, is going to hide that. Let's move on to part two of this lesson. 60. COLORIZED PHOTO IN ADOBE PHOTOSHOP 2021 PART 2: Welcome back. So now this is looking really good. We've done two things so far. I want to paint this area a little thickness all the way.

So I'm going to zoom in just a little. And I'm going to paint this area. I'm going to add a little bit more of the green color. So I'm going to decrease my brush so I can make my way in here.

You want to keep the button white. Just like that. So I'm gonna go ahead and zoom out so we can see, this looks good. Let's move on to part three of this lesson. 61. Colorized photo in adobe photoshop 2022: Hi, welcome back. Double-click at the far right of our layer. You want your underlayer to lead through the color. So to do that, you're going to hold down your old and then you want to split this so that your color begins to bleed through that shirt. So we want to do the same thing here. So it's more realistic.

If you want it a little bit more darker, we can double click on the color and we can begin to play with it. So we get something a little bit more. Match from something like this. I'm gonna collapse it. And I'm going to increase my brush head a little with my flow, more, with my flow down. You want to make sure that you are on the layer Max. And we want to paint in this area, the increase my flow just a little so we can get I will feed you guys. Notice I was on the wrong foreground color. So I'm gonna click on. So I changed my foreground to y. And now when I paint, you can see that the color begins to show a little bit more. So it makes, it, makes it look a little bit more natural. Oops. Seems like I'm painting over the other color. So I'm just going to get rid of those. And I think we are done. This is really nice. The last step I want to show you is combining everything and using your camera roll effect. So to do that, we are going to click the last layer, the top layer, to select everything holding down the Shift. And now we are going to click on our group icon folder. There was group everything for us. I want to show you that before and after, before we add a camera Roy effect. So this is before and this is the after. You wanna make sure you click on your group layer, holding down your Shift Control Alt E, that will give you one image. Now you want to go to Phil term, camera roll. And then in camera roll, you get to now enrich your final image. So I'm going to take down that exposure a little. And I'm going to increase the saturation. And we're gonna take the vibrance down just a little while. You can make it a little bit more like that. One. Increase the contrast just like that. I love it. I'm gonna click Ok. So I won't even show you the before and after. So this is what we had before. I added a camera roll effect. And this is the final image. Guys. This brings us to the end of this lesson. I hope that this was very helpful to you. I will see you in the next lesson. Bye. 62. Photo Manipulation Effect Adobe Photoshop 2021: Hi guys, welcome back. I hope you having fun in cars and you just cruising through. So in today's tutorial, I'm going to show you how you can create this composition effect or what we call a photo manipulation. So with this image, I want to go ahead and bring in another image. So we're gonna go to our folder and we are going to drag this image n. And we're going to double-click to accept this image. Now, we want to take of the background. Now the easiest way is that we want to go under our property. And you want to first of all convert two layers if you don't see a quick action command, now we want to click yes. And now you see the quick action. You want to click on the quick action. You want to click on a twice. So you can see the command that says remove background. Now we're going to click on that. And Photoshop will basically take up the background. Now, if you have an older version, you can still use your quick select shen tool. Click on select Subject, and Photoshop will take up the background for you. So with this set, we want to click on our MOOC tool. And we're going to move a subject a little bit back. We're going to zoom out and we are going to scale head down a little bit more like that. So we have hay in scale. And this is good enough for us. I'm going to double-click to accept this. We want to go ahead and change the background. So what I'm going to do as Festival, I want to make a duplicate of the background. I'm going to click on the padlock to unlock mine background. We want to make a copy. So Command J, Make a copy and we are going to click on the top layer. We want to go to fill tout Blair and motion Blair. We want to add a little bit of a motion effect to the water. And with this set, we're going to keep it at ten. I'm going to click OK. Now what I'm going to do is that I don't want that effect on my walking board area nor in the sky. So I'm going to add a layer Macs. So you wanna go down to your panel and underneath you see this icon, which once you clear, adds a layer max. We wanted to lead the motion player on the walking board area and also the sky. So we are going to pick our brush tool and you want to make sure your foreground is white, is black. Now, when it comes to lay umax, black heights, whites reveals, if we want to hide something, we are going to paint over with black. I'm going to make a selection using my lasso tool. I'm gonna go ahead and use my brush. And I'm going to increase my brush head by clicking on my right bracket. And I'm just going to paint. And notice that this area now is sharp. I'm going to press Command D to D select. Now we want to do the same thing for us guy. So we're just going to do this. And now you can see that everything in the background looks sharp. A septa water. So we have this motion effect happening on the water and everything else is a shock, which looks really, really good. We want to replace the background. So I'm gonna go back to my folder and I'm going to drag this image M. And we're going to set it right there. We're going to scale it. So you want to hold one end of your image and just scale it like that. We're going to pull this down. Like so, we wanna take the opacity down so we can see what is happening in our background as we erase. So we are going to go ahead and add another layer Max. That way, if we paint over and we don't want it, we can always bring it back. So I'm going to paint, but always make sure that you are on your thumbnail for your layer Macs so you can be able to paint and hide. Now I'm going to increase my brush a little like into this faster. Now as I get closer to the top, you want to reduce it so that you don't paint over or more than what is needed. So we're gonna do something like this around the tree. And I'm going to take around the mountain and the tree here as well. So we have something like this. Now if I turn my opacity all the way up, we have this effect that is going on shims or I'm going to increase my brush head. So we get a bit of almost like a gradual effect that is happening around the sky area. So we get a very good blend like so. Now what I also want to do is that I want a bit of that effect or reflection into water. So we're going to go ahead and zoom out holding down my options, I'm just pattern. Now, you want to make a copy of your sky. So we are going to just click comment. To make a copy. We're going to right-click on our image and make it into a smart object. We want to use our rectangular marquee tool. I'm going to make a selection for just the top right-click. Make a copy. And I'm going to ten of the original image. So with this, now we can go ahead and hold down shift and we want to stretch it and scale it down. I'm going to increase it. So we have the entire thing spreading to the back. So now that we have this, we want to take the opacity down. Like so. So we have almost like the sky reflection in the water, something like this. I'm going to double-click to accept. So now that we've done that, we want to get rate of the walking port area from in terms of the sky. So we can just take our eraser and erase it. Or since we already have that area cleaned from the motion layer layer, we can make a selection of that area and then be able to cut it out. So I'm going to click on that. The image that we made a copy at a layer max. Now we want to go back to a motion Blair layer hold down command and select that thumbnail. Now you want to go up to your Select and you want to choose the inverse so that now the selection is made of the sky and the walk and board. So if I click on my layer max for the sky reflection in the water, I can pick my brush and I can just paint to hide that area. Now, I can press Command D to D select. I can reduce my brush and also paint this area so that any part of the sky doesn't show up. Now with this set, we can reduce our sky reflection in the water. So a looks very realistic. We want to go ahead and sum richness to us guy. So I'm going to go ahead and add a solid color. And I'm going to pick an orange like rich orange like that. Then it click OK. And I'm going to reduce the opacity. So we have something like this. I'm going to pick my Brush Tool. And with my layer max, which is generated when you create the solid color, I'm going to increase my brush head and I'm going to paint over to basically hide this area. So we want to intensify the sky. So we have something like this. Now I'm going to move this layer beneath, so that is not on top of my subject. So with this all set for us, we want to go ahead and add a layers adjustment. So I'm going to click on my color fail. We wanna go ahead and add a Curves Adjustment so we can bump up the richness of the colors. So I'm going to click on my adjustment and then add curves. And notice that I have that right beneath my subject. So we're gonna go ahead and play with our curves to see what we can get. So this looks good so far. I can take my image, go to Image Adjustment and I can increase the brightness. So we have something like this. I'm going to click OK. Now we're going to do the same thing with our image. I'm gonna click on my image, go to Image Adjustment and rightness, or we're going to increase it like that. So what I want to do is that I want to move my Curves Adjustment and place it right above my sky. And I want to clip it so that all the changes just happens to the sky and not our background image. So I'm going to hold down options and clip it. So it only applied to my sky. Now, I can go back and ten on my sky reflection in the water. And I can also take that opacity down. So it's not too much. And we can even go back to Filter and apply the motion bled to that as well. So we cannot see it but is not taken away from the whole effect. So with this offset, we want to go ahead and add a shadow effect to our image. So what we are going to do is that we are going to hold down command, click on our thumbnail, which will make a selection of a subject. Now, we want to add a new layer and we want to paint that in with black. So I'm going to click on my foreground background. So I get my default black. I'm going to pick my pink bucket, and I'm going to fill that N. Now, I'm going to press Command D to D select. I'm going to click on my MOOC Tool, hold him down my shift. I'm going to basically pull this shadow down and we're going to move it up. I'm going to go to Edit, go to Transform, and then distort. And I'm going to move that to the opposite side. So we have, so we have this effect happening on the floor. I'm going to double-click. Now what I'm going to do is that I'm going to reduce the opacity of the shadow. So you wanna make sure that you are on the right layer. We're going to click on the shadow layer and we're going to reduce the opacity. So we have something like this. Now. Lastly, we want to create almost like a gradual fading effect of my subject. So I'm going to add a layer max to this and that we're going to pick out. Gradient tool. And we are just going to draw a line. And then you see that it gives you that gradual like faded effect or even pick your brush tool and brush a little. So you have that effect, but it's not too much. So to finish this off, we are going to make one file of this image. I'm gonna click on my top layer. And then I'm going to press Shift Option Command E. Make one copy. Now I wanna go to Filter Camera wrong and a window opens up for me. So what I'm going to do is I'm gonna take the temperature back. So we have a very class. We have a very clear sky effect. Now, I'm going to increase the contrast. So we have something like this. And I'm going to increase the vibrant. And also you can increase your saturation if you want. So you have this cool effect. And I'm going to go ahead and click OK. So this is the before. Now, this is the after. Now, then again, it depends on which one you prefer. Now, lastly, I want to go ahead and add almost like a vignette around our image. So, I mean, you can do this before you do the step. So even if you want to go back and do that step, we can ten of the layout that we created. Now we can click on our, we can click on the top layer. And I'm adjustment. And you want to add a gradient. Now, we want to use black, but we want to change the style to radon. And we want to reverse it so that the effect happens on the outside. Now, we want to increase our scale so that the effect only happens around our, our canvas. I'm gonna go ahead and click OK. Now we're going to repeat the same step to generate one file. So Shift Option Command E, We have one file. Now this time when we go to filter to apply the camera roll effect for a shop has already saved our satin, so we can just click on the top, the Camera Raw effect. And it will apply all the changes that we have already done to our image. So guys, this is it. Now, if you want to make your image a little bit more lighter, we can do that. So Festival, you want to go back to your gradient and you want to adjust it a little bit so it's not too much in the sky. And we can live in double-click and go back and make sure that it's not too much. We just have it around the edges. I'm going to click OK. I'm gonna delete this one. And we're going to press Shift Option Command E. Make one file go to your Filter Camera Raw. And it acts that effect to your image. So you can either go with this option on this option which is much brighter, and I think I prefer this, but if you'd like the vignette, you can also go with this option. This brings us to the end of this lesson. I hope that you found this very interesting and how you can easily blend in the front images and still be able to achieve a nice composition. So with this said, try it out. You can share with me. So I can also see your progress. So I will see you all in the next video. Bye. 63. PHOTOSHOP MANIPULATION PART 1: Hiv students, welcome back. So in this lesson, I'm going to show you how to create this teapots photo manipulation. So without much ado, let's get started. The first thing we're going to do is that we want to bring our base image n, which we are calling to use to trace and create a teapot. So I'm going to just drag and drop it in here, gonna double-click to accept it. Now, we want to basically shape the teapot into an orange teapot. So we're going to, so we're gonna go back to our folder and I'm gonna drag and I'm gonna set it right there. And notice that it has a background with it. So to take up the background, we're gonna click on our layer. And then we want to come under our property. And we are looking for the quick action. But a quick action is not available because we need to convert our file to layer. So I'm going to click on Convert, going to ask me, do you want to remain transformed, apply on the smart object layer? I'm going to say yes. And now if I double-click on my quick action twice, it gives me the option to remove background. Or if you are on an older version, you can also go under the magic one select Quick Selection Tool, and you can click on select Subject and Photoshop will also cut it out the same way, but in this case you will have to add your layer max for it cut. But if you go back Command D to go back Command D to D select, if I use that quick action, I'm going to double-click to bring up, Remove Background. Photoshop cuts it and removes the background for you. So with this set, I'm going to pick my MOOC tool and I'm going to set my orange in the location that I want. And then I'm going to scale this down like that. And you don't have to hold your shift if you are on Photoshop 2021. But sometime depending on which version you're on, you might have to hold down Shift while you scale your image or whatever you're trying to scale. So I'm now going to rotate it a little to get it in the position that I want. And this is good enough. I'm gonna double-click to accept it. You wanna festival, make a copy of your orange. So you wanna hold out down your options. Select the layer max for the orange. Now, click on the image thumbnail for the orange itself. Press Command V, command C to make a copy. Add a new layer by clicking on the plus icon. Now press command V to paste it. Now we can ten the visibility of for the original layer. I can pick up my last row tool to cut off my lid. And I'm just going to come out of it like that. Now. I want to move it up a little because I don't want a big lead. So something like this. Now with double layer selected, I'm going to right-click and cut it. So we have two p, so we have the LED and we have the body of R t. So I'm going to turn off the LED. So I'm gonna go back to my folder and I wanted, I want to use this orange top as my lid. So what I'm going to do is that I'm going to just cut this area of using my Lasso Tool. And I'm going to right-click and make a copy. And then I'm going to click on the original layer, and I'm going to just press Delete to Senate, to delete it, we want to basically cut out the top part of this orange. So I'm going to hold on options and try and gauge in the center of my orange. And I'm just going to do this and try and see how close I can get it. And then I'm going to move the selection a little bit down, shifted around to see how best I can get it to match the top. So now that I have a good selection, I'm going to right-click and cut that out. And I'm going to turn off the outline. Now. I'm going to move this and then I'm going to place this on top, going to zoom out. And what I'm going to do is I'm going to set it up right here as the lead. And then I'm going to go to edit. And then we want to use that, this tort. So now we are just going to basically try and scale this down and try and gauge how is going to look at the LED. So you just have to play with it a couple of times to get it to fit as the lead. So there's a little knowledge in and little bit of manipulation that you have to do to get it to work. So I'm going to double-click. And this looks fairly good. You can even tell that we place this on top. Now, if you want to clean it a little, you can go back to edit, transform, the Stuart. And you can even scale it down a little bit more to make sure that as flat. And it now this looks really good as the lead. 64. PHOTSHOP MANIPULATION PART 2: Hiv students. Welcome back. Now we want to go ahead and ten on the lead that we had, I'm gonna move it. And I'm going to move that layer all the way to the top. So it's like this sudden ride on top of our orange. I love it and I'm sure you do too. So we want to add a little bit of a shadow effect to this to give it that 3D effect. So I'm going to hold down my option. I'm going to hold up my command, make a selection of the layer, and I'm going to add a new layer by clicking on the plus icon. I'm going to move that layer below the lead layer and I'm going to pick up my black. And with my brush, I'm going to paint that. And now you really can't see until I turn off the visibility. Now you can see it. So I'm going to press Command D to D Select. And I go into ten this on. So I'm going to rotate this like so. So it acts as door is a shadow being cast, going to move this in here like that. So it's like the lead has a shadow that has been cast. I'm going to click on my shadow and I'm going to reduce the opacity down a opacity. So as DOT, the LED is casting a shadow. Now we can select the whole thing and rotated a little. So our LED is not like as fallen off. Yeah. This looks much better. And we can set it in place like that. So we have a very good teapots so far. Now, we wanna go ahead. I'm gonna go ahead and select everything again. So to select everything you want to select the bottom MA grow all the way to the top, hold down your shift, select the top image and scale it like that. Now we want to add the orange handle as well as the orange, I'll say nose of the T port. So we want to make a copy of this orange, or you can bring in another orange. And so I'm going to pull this end and I'm going to double-click to accept. I'm gonna see if I can pull a little of that. I'm going to click on my poly Lasso Tool. And I'm just going to cut this out like that. I'm going to right-click and make a copy. And I'm going to turn this off. And I'm going to use my move tool. I'm going to move this instead it right there. Like that. I'm going to make another copy. So common j to make a copy, we're gonna ten. We're going to move this here because we're going to use that fault knows. So I'm going to turn it off for now and we're going to zoom in. So I'm holding down my options and I'm just zooming n, or you can use your magnifying glass. So I'm going to turn down the possibility or the, I'm going to turn out or possibility of this. So we can see our handle and we can basically trace it. So I'm going to pick up my lasso tool. And I'm just going to go ahead and trace around this. So I'm going to right click and make a copy of this layer. And we're going to turn off the original. I'm going to go ahead and zoom out so we can see this. And I'm going to increase the opacity. So we have a full thing. Now, we wanna do the same thing for the nose. So I'm going to turn this on. I'm going to click on the right layer and reduce the opacity. Then I'm going to move this N a little. We're going to zoom in and I'm going to do the same thing. So we are basically going to trace around this as well. And the more you use the lasso tool, the more comfortable you get and you can do the same. Now, I am going beyond my no sin because I will put that below in terms of the layer. So I'm going to right-click and create a copy ten of this. And I'm going to move this below. So is below my orange soil is hidden just like that. And we are going to increase the capacity so we can see it. Now, when I zoom out, you see everything, but it looks very 2D and 3D. So there are a few things that we can do to brighten this and make it work. 65. PHOTOSHOP MANIPULATION PART 3: Hello students, welcome back. So I'm going to use my lasso tool again. And we're going to cut off the top just like that. And I'm going to just told me that we don't need that Command D to D select so we can see the inside of our T Porat. Yes, yes, yes. Now, for the top, I'm going to go ahead and I'm going to make, use my lasso tool again. And I'm going to just trace around this for the top. And then I'm going to add a new layer. And i'm going to go ahead and fill this in. And we're going to use like a deeper orange like that. I'm going to use my paint bucket to fill that M Command D to D select. Now I'm going to reduce the possibility of this. We're going to zoom in again and we are going to create a tram. And so we can see the inside of our team. So we have something like this. And I'm going to delete that and use increased or past 30. So we have this Command D to D select. So this is what we have so far, is about time that we turned off the teapot image that we brought em. Now we have something like this. I'm going to zoom out. And so we can see how far we have progressed. This looks really good. Now what we're going to do is that we want to get rid of a bit of this shadow effect. In reality, you wouldn't see that extension. So I'm going to go ahead and trim that off. And I'm going to just deleted and Command D. Now, it looks more realistic. Now we want to go ahead and create a new layer. And we're going to pick our brush tool. And you can choose any soft brush and choose them that. And we want our hardness to be at 10%. And we are going to ten, our foreground color to white. So we just going to click on the black and white default and flip the arrow so we get acquired on top. Now, I want to add some lightness and some shadow so that we get this handle and the nose and lock in 3D. So we are going to go ahead with our brush. I'm gonna increase my brush a little by precedent or right bracket. And I'm going to press command and select our teapot. And then I'm gonna go our teapot nose and I'm going to go on the new layer that we chess, which is this one. And then I'm going to just do some painting around it like that. And then we are going to reduce our capacity for that. And then I'm just gonna play around with it a little and reduce that. And also we are going to reduce the fail. So we tried to get a realistic handle. So it says DO that sunlight being cast in that area. So with that light sauce, this place will be much lighter. And we're going to pick our Eraser tool. And I'm going to increase my brush. And we're going to take some of this area, decrease it a little. You wanna make sure that your hardness is at 0. I'm gonna increase my brush so we get a gradual effect happening. But we have something like this. We want to also add a little bit on this side as well to create a nice effect. So I'm going to zoom in and we want to make sure that desk lamps and well, so I'm going to go to edit. And ten, we want to go to transform and the Stuart. And we are going to tend as n like that. And then what we are going to do is we are going to make a selection command and make a selection of that layer. And I'm going to add a new layer. Then I want to change the foreground color. They're going to pick an orange but a deeper orange like so. I'm gonna zoom in. And that is zoom in a little. And most of this area, that's also like comments. So festival, we're gonna flip this and choose of white. And with our brush, we are going to fake this. So we have something lighter. And I'm going to use my, I'm going to reduce our capacity. So that also goes down. But at the same time it says DO that's like being cast. Now, we want to also have some darkness around handle. So I'm going to just paint this are rounded like that. And you can begin to see that it's given us sort of a 3D effect. I'm just going to do something like this. And sometimes you want to put things on different layers so it makes it easier to be able to ten does things off and on. So we, we, we are beginning to see a very nice 3D effect. I'm gonna pick back my brush and I'm going to reduce it. And we are going to press command, make a selection, add a new layer. And we are just going to gently. So I'm going to pick up my brush and I'm going to increase my brush a little. And we're going to try and to a second thing. Try and give this very 3D like effect. And as you can see, it's beginning to look very 3D. Mesh with some fuse shadows around the edges and not too much, but as making it look good. So Command D to D select. 66. PHOTOSHOP MANIPULATION PART 4: Hiv students, welcome back. So we want to go ahead and add shadow effect. So I'm going to click on my teapot and I'm going to add a new layer on top. And then I'm going to pick my brush. So I'm going to reduce my brush, going to decrease my hardness and my brush size. I'm gonna take it down a little. And then I'm going to increase my brush head. And I'm going to do that. I'm going to pick my move tool and then I'm going to hold on my shift and make this flat like that. I'm going to move that and set that right there under a tea pot so that creeds like a shadow effect for us. And I'm going to reduce it a little, so it's not too much. We wanted to look realistic. We are going to add a gradient effect on the background. So I'm going to click on my adjustment. And we are going to add gradient. And I'm going to double-click and we wanna change the color. So I'm gonna click on the Color option and we're gonna choose like somewhere and the orange range. But maybe we might want to go at something like this. I'm going to click OK. Now we want to also change this to a similar color. I'm going to click OK. And OK. Now we want to change our tau to read OWL and we want to reverse it. So we have TO quiet on the n side and the orange on the outside. Now, we can go ahead and increase the scale so that we get a more realistic look like this. And I'm going to click OK. I like the way a lot so far. And what we're going to do is we want to move this gradient layer to the bottom. So is not on top of our orange, but it's actually behind it. And now you can see the 3D effect very well. Now we want to go back to our folder, and I want to bring in this image. We want to use a smoky effect here. So I'm going to pick my Lasso Tool and I'm just going to cut out he smoky effect. And I'm just going to block that and right-click, make a copy. Then the original we can delete by precedent, Delete on your keyboard. And we want to only keep us smoky effect but get rid of the black. So to do that, we are going to change the blend mode and we are going to do screen. Now screen basically takes of anything that is white and anything that has black and heights it. So we have this cool effect. I'm showing you like, ooh, that's cool. Yeah, I've done this so many times that to me is nothing big. So we have this call and nice effect. And the next thing that we want to do is to go back to our folder. We wanna drag this image n, going to double-click and we want to take off the background. So we're going to click on our image. Then go to property convert layer, say yes, double-click on the quick action twice, then click on remove background. So we basically get rid of the background including a shadow. Going to go ahead and scale this down. You can choose to put it here, or you can choose to put it here. But I'll set it right here. I'm gonna do something like this. So what I'm going to do is I wanna rescale everything. I noticed. My shadow is below. So I'm gonna move that up like that. And I'm going to select my shadow and then scroll all the way up, holding down shift. We want to select everything and we want to move it out like that. More of a smoky factory can do commentary to duplicate it. So shows a lot more. 67. PHOTOSHOP MANIPULATION PART 5: Hi, students, welcome back. So in order to have a shadow effect, we're going to do the same thing. I'm going to click on this, this shadow effect. First of all, we're gonna go to Fill Tab Blair. Caution Blair. And I want to make my shadow a lot more Blair, I'm going to click OK and we're going to take the same one command J to make a copy. I'm going to set that right there. And I'm going to also scale this down. Hold in my shift. We want to go back to our folder and I'm gonna pull this m. We want to extract the leaped him. I'm just going to use my Lasso Tool and I'm just going to go ahead and cut this out. And if you want, you can add the string, but is more complex. So I'm gonna right-click, Make a Copy, and we can delete this entirely. Now I'm going to move this and status right here and I'm going to scale it. So it looks like that. So we're gonna go back to our folder and we're going to drag this back in. Again. I'm going to zoom in. And then I'm just going to go ahead and use mine Lasso Tool. And I'm just going to trace around so we can get the string. And we're gonna right-click, Make a Copy. And we are going to select that and set up some ways. Here. There are two something like this double-click. Now you want to move this and move it down. So it's like the lead is underneath. And now what I'm going to do is I'm going to go ahead select both and move it down a little. And then we want to cut a little bit of a shadow for the lepton. So I'm going to hold down my command, make us selection, add a new layer with my paint bucket. I'm going to fill that n and I'm going to hold down mine shipped. And we're going to scale this using the Move tool. So I'm gonna select that layer and we're going to reduce our past study. I'm going to reduce it a little bit more. And I'm really sorry about the blank green thing that keeps popping up. I think is that glitch in Photoshop 2021? I'm not sure. So I'm gonna go ahead and add something small at the top so that it acts as DOT. We, we have some dept alone, the nose area. So I'm going to add a new layer. And with my paintbrush, I'm going to make sure that my foreground is black. And I'm going to reduce my brush head, and I'm just going to do this. So it gives me that 3D effect. And I'm going to go back out. And Command D. We have this and I can even take the capacity down a little. So we can see sort of a 3D at depth effect at the rim of our tea pots. So it's like we can see inside. So with this offset, we can go ahead and add a color lookup to finish off our manipulation effect. So I'm going to go to my adjustment, add a color, look up so you can go ahead and experiment with a few. So we can click on this and then choose Crips, mom. Or we can go with the wind term. If that doesn't work, you can always go with strip lock. This gives you a nice effect. So we can do this is the before. This is the after. If it's too bright and you wanted this mutate, that's fine. So guys, that brings us to the end of the lesson. I can't wait to see your rendition of this. You can send it to me or posted in the discussion board and we can all take a look at it. So I will see you all in the next tutorial.
