    How do make this ?

    Yeah, that you create art and they have lawful rights to it once you upload it is totally unfair. But its in their terms and conditions(edit, they dont own copyrights automatically, but they have a right to seek it if they so desire). Its a pretty popular site, and I think people trade off the...

    This was taken from a Worth1000 contest ( ), and yes, it is copyrighted. Once you upload something to one of their contests, they own the copyright, and the terms and conditions state that no image may be posted anywhere else. I'm...

    Create a image inside letters/words

    You want them to "clip" to those smily face photoshop speak. The way to do this is create one layer of your picture and then another layer for your text. Then put your mouse between the two layers while holding alt, then click when you see the wierd cursor shape. This will have the...

    Im not arguing my way is better, its just the way i would do it. Its not how you do it but the end result that really matters. I think yours looks perfectly acceptable minus the yellow bands in the blue channel. awesome.

    How to retouch this photo, hlp pls!!!!!!

    If getting rid of the halftoning artifacts is the point, which is what I think it is, there is no way to do it without "filtering" channels (meaning blurring and sharpening, which are not effects filters) individually. For instance, there are extreme bands in the blue channel in this image, for...

    How to retouch this photo, hlp pls!!!!!!

    Each image has ten channels essentially. If you can identify which channel has the most imperfections -- for instance if they are just colored dots, use lab to blur the ab channels, and if they are yellow dots, use the blue channel of RGB, and if they are all black, blur and sharpen the K...

    Basically this kind of job is done by blurring and sharpening the red, green and blue channels of the image and selectively using the blur and then (if needed) the median filter to get out imperfections, followed by an unsharp mask filter to bring out detail. Usually you want to...

    edge blending problem..

    Well, what i would do is cut some more of the white edges off of the woman, even in the hair and just get creative with that part, however you do it(vector mask, layer mask, etc). People are not as likely to notice, or care when you do this with a vector mask, in fact in a lot of publications...
