    Ultimate place for photoshop video tutorials and demos

    Here I will post of videos of photoshop tutorials that i have made. In this thread it will go from just starting out with photoshop, to more advanced options. It will be a learning process for me, as well as for others. So please pitch in and help out.. I was searching through the thread for most comon qeustion asked, and will be making those my first few videos/ walkthroughs i make... Please feel free to critque the videos and any problems you may find do tell..


    Here is the first video. Has to do with most basic tools and creating brushes options, layers... Theres some spelling mistakes ill go back and fix. You have to click on the text to keep going in the video


    To Make a boarder by just using the Marquee tool ( M ) Make a new layer, Select the whole canvas, by using ( ctrl+A ). Right click the screen while having Marquee tool selected, choose Stroke , you will get a window asking you how big you want your stroke in pixels that will be the width of the stroke/boarder, what color you would like, and the location, choose ( CENTER ) and the blending modes are extra options you can play with. Now click OK you will now have the boarder around your entire canvas on a separate layer. Now the one thing about using this method is, it will cut off some of your painting, or photo. Dont worrie it's on a separate layer so you can delete it if you do not like.





    Adobe photoshop shortcuts

    I recomend learning Adobe photoshop shortcuts it will quicken your workflow


    Hide all tools > TAB

    Make just palettes, not toolbar, disappear > SHIFT+TAB

    18% gray background > F

    An all black background > F + F + TAB

    Zoom in > CTRL + + either beside backspace or the number pad on the right

    Zoom Out > CTRL - - Same as above

    Get the Hand tool temporarily > Hold SPACE BAR

    Fit image on screen > CTRL + 0

    Keep brush size but soften > SHIFT+[

    Keep brush size but harden > SHIFT+]

    Return toolbar color swatches to b&w > D

    Switch foreground and background colors > X

    Temporarily select Move tool > CTRL

    Turn Cancel button into Reset button > ALT

    Undo > CTRL+Z

    Step back through history palette > CTRL+ALT+Z

    Last brush stoke was to harsh fade it > CTRL+SHIFT+F

    Ever have troubles finding your brush, when you're painting? or is the backround color anoyying you? Well i got some solutions. Click your paint bucket, choose a color, Hold Shift, and then click your backround, now thats some thing for a change. If you have lost your brush just click and hold the space bar, and the hand tool will come up.

~BlackBoarder~

Nice Seth, thanks for sharing, another way to make a border is just to use the marking-tool ( M ) Then selecting the whole canvas... Make a new layer , then right click while having marking-tool selected, choose Stroke , a windows comes up, select colour and size (in pixels ) click OK and you have a border around your canvas..

    Dile_: Thanks for adding your method dile....

    If any one else has photoshop tips to share please do so....

    I used to use that way to dile but I found it simpler just to choose a forground color and use canvas size

    Really cool stuff, man. If you have time, could you maybe make one showing how to make good looking clouds. Preferably, really dark, low storm clouds. Like a complete overcast. If not, that's cool too.
