    Combining Styles

    Just for clarification, are you referring to Layer Styles-style presets? What version of Ps are you using now? I tried using the shift key to add and combine style presets, and it works for me in CC19.

    Using brush to fill empty shapes

    Now that I have had a chance to see what it is that you're trying to do, I see there is an easier way. I love clipping masks but sometimes they are not the best choice. Layer masks are not as editable, but in some cases (like this) it's not an issue. I make this post so that anyone who may...

    CreativeLive vs LinkedIn learning

    Hey. You really can't go wrong with either Deke at LinkedIn or some of the awesome presenters at CreativeLive, like Cory Barker, Aaron Nace, Julianne Kost, and Jesus Ramirez. I'm not sure I would be willing to pay the middle man at CreativeLive when most of their presenters offer their own...

    Perhaps I misunderstood. When you stated "2020" I assumed you meant Photoshop. I can't be of much help with Elements. Having said that......................set your effect mode to "Normal" instead of hard light. That should clear things up.

    Trouble merging two text layers in 3D space

    Hello and welcome. Just to clarify................your layers panel from the first "picture" shows that you have two 3D layers that both have "Hello World". These layers both have applied textures. Without having the PSD file to experiment with, I would suspect that this is where the problem...

    New retouch

    Hey. Interesting job. Were you going for an HDR effect? What is your definition of popping up? There's still some cloning anomalies around the head. Looks "noisy". Also when cloning, you need to clone out the "stubby" hairs. Reshaping hair is very difficult. The shadow from the cabinet...

    Clone Stamp Tool Practice Thread #1

    There are several courses you can pay for but there are also particular people/YouTubers you should follow. The main one I recommend would be Plearn. Go back to his first videos and start DOING his tutorials. Do two or three a day and I guarantee you will see improvement in a weeks time.
