    Clone Stamp Tool Practice Thread #1

    This may be an unnecessary question IamSam, but do you want the clone stamp tool to be the only tool used for the repairs/modifications, or can other tools be used along with the CS tool? I'm not a newbie to photoshop, but I'm still only about a 4 or 5 on a scale of 10! Nowhere close to most of...

    Grouping Selections

    Yes Hawkeye, I do it that way also, but needed a way to avoid being limited on the number of selections I could have saved. I won't be using the fill color for coloring, but just use the selections for a solid color layer and then the additional adjustments as necessary for a finished picture...

    Grouping Selections

    Grouping Selections

    I do colorizing on many black and white photos, many of which are old family portraits and I need to make many selections in the process. My question is: Can selections be organized by groups? Can individual selections be moved in their order? Is there a limit on selections? Any insights will...

    Here are two versions with a new background. I don't know what type of BG you wanted, but here's an ocean scene. I attached one with just the ladies and one with the gentleman. Like polarwoc said, the resolution on the gentleman didn't make for a very good image. A larger one would help. I...
