    Irregular Halo

    I have this problem with wanting to hurry up and get something done, instead of quick selection or wand, use the pen tool to get your points to be exact. The pen tool takes up more time but you will be able to cut out exactly what you want out, rather than using photoshops UI to figure out most...

    girl on the beach

    A screenshot doesn't keep allow the quality of the work to stay the same either. Where are you representing your work? If it is on social media your name is already associated with your work and people will find you. But if you want to keep a watermark definitely make it smaller as well as I...

    girl on the beach

    For me personally, watermarks should be subtle or not there at all. The watermark you have is distracting and if it has a presence just as big as the picture, then I believe it should be removed. I understand the fear of people stealing your images, that's why you can embed metadata into your...

    Need help with saving files :(!

    I've done the same thing and the only solution is to re-edit really. It hurt in the past but I just saw it as more practice for improvement or do something better. Turn your short comings into something great, just pay attention harder next time. Never rush any saving steps.

    Quick Basic Tool Explanation for Beginners

    Okay I gotcha thank you for your input. I guess because I was focused on relaying information quick and to the point, and just having a general idea of what this tool can do it took away from more understanding. Definitely will keep in mind when I go over more functions.

It will be hard sometimes but that's how you'll become a photoshop guru then you'll be on the other...

    First, did you download this picture off the internet? If so, you cannot convert an image from a low resolution to a higher one, there's not enough information within the pixels to be able to convert to a higher resolution.

    How can I do this effect? total newb question

    Yea the scattered look would be from getting a specific brush that has the style pattern of what you're going for. So if you look up scattered brushes or particle brushes to download, you'll be able to get that style of edit you're going for. Photoshop really doesn't automate an effect like...
