It's Friday....5 Fact Friday that is....... I'm linking up with Reflection of You Five Fact Friday.... It's open all week, so feel free to play too .. It's FUN! Click here to check it out.
Today I thought I'd share 5 Photoshop Tips&Tricks I Love...... Scroll down to check out the screencast 5 fact version....see the tips in action.
Okie doke...let's dive in.
Fact 1. Totally Rad's new Pro Retouch 2.0 action set is BLOWING my mind..... I posted a little review over at Shutter Sisters...come check it out.... So good. Sorry Elements users...it is a CS set only....
Fact 2. I have no idea why I didn't do this before... But when you click the command key it temporarily turns your current tool into the move tool. Very very handy....
Fact 3. When you draw out a selection you can always transform your selection by zipping up to the selection menu and choosing transform selection. From there you can 'perfect' your selection. And while we are on selections, you can always move your selection as you are making it by temporarily holding down the space bar, this will allow you to move the selection exactly where you would like it to be. Once you have it in place, release the space bar.
Fact 4. If your brush cursor disappears...check the cap locks.... when the caps are on, you will only see the cross hairs not the full brush shape. The other possibility is you are working on a low-res image....and your brush is so big you can't see the shape.... if it's not cap locks...try reducing the brush size.
Fact 5. To quickly adjust the brush size use the right and left bracket keys... so much quicker. And finally.... to select a colour from within your image.... while the brush tool is selected.... click within your photo while holding down the option key on a mac, alt on a pc.....and your brush will temporarily turn into the eye dropper
For further clarification....watch the screencast below. :)
