Mastering Levels Adjustments
By: Richard Harrington on Aug 28, 2012 at 11:56:00 am

The Levels command corrects tonal ranges and color balance issues. With this command you can fix poor exposure. Additionally, you can perform color correction by manually identifying a white point and black point in the image. Nearly every image can benefit from making a Levels adjustment. To understand Levels, you must be able to read a histogram. This graph works as a visual guide for adjusting the image. The Levels adjustment has its own histogram that is visible when working in the Adjustments panel. You may also want to call up the Histogram panel (Window > Histogram) and leave it...

Save Your Photos for Web and Mobile Delivery
By: Richard Harrington on Dec 3, 2011 at 9:10:00 pm

I frequently see other photographers struggle in preparing their files for the Internet. Some make files that are ridiculously big and take forever to download. Others accidentally resize or flatten layers during the process and damage their files. But I understand, you probably didn t study to be a web developer. Fortunately, Photoshop provides a powerful command for compressing images and previewing the results: the Save For Web & Devices command. 1. Open an image in Adobe Photoshop. 2. Choose File > Save For Web & Devices. 3. The Save For Web & Devices dialog box offers several important options...

How to Sign Your Work – Adding a Digital Signature To Your Photographs
By: Richard Harrington on Aug 16, 2011 at 12:34:00 pm

A popular trend these days is to sign your images when posting online. The thought is to treat the image more like it was being shown in a gallery and less like pixel dust in the wind. The process is really pretty easy to do. I d also like to state that this is a much more attractive way to watermark a photo.

When working in time-lapse or panoramic photography, chances are that you have a lot of photos to deal with. Maybe its a bunch of Raw files that you want to develop to the same settings, or high resolution images that you want to down sample. The great news is that Photoshop includes a useful script to get more done in less time. The Image Processor differs from the Batch command in that you don t have to first create an action. The Image Processor script can be more flexible than the Batch command. The Image Processor can be used for...

How to Make Your Camera Work with Adobe Camera Raw
By: Richard Harrington on Jun 10, 2011 at 10:01:00 pm

I recently came across a great post from one of the developers on the Photoshop team. It's called "Why doesn't my version of Photoshop or Lightroom support my camera?" by Jeff Tranberry. Jeff offers a logical workflow that explains how to stay current, how to confirm the status of your camera, as well as a workaround using the Adobe DNG converter. It's a great article and worth the read http://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/2011/03/why-doesnt-my-version-of-photosho p-or-lightroom-support-my-camera.html Speaking of DNG, be sure to watch this useful video which explains the format.

Better 360˚ Panoramic Photos Using Photoshop Automation
By: Richard Harrington on Jun 9, 2011 at 10:01:00 pm

I've posted a new article over at the Triple Exposure website on 360˚ Panoramic Images. As many explore panoramic photography, they off stop short (at least of making a full 360˚ arc). The truth is that its gotten much easier to make a fully actualized 360˚ image. If enough photos are taken, then a large panoramic image can be made. These photos can then be turned into an interactive panoramic for the web or brought into Adobe After Effects to serve as a backdrop for chroma key footage. You can read the whole thing at http://3exposure.com/2011/06/10/better-360˚-panoramic-photos-using-photosh op-automation/ Be sure to also...
