    Learning Illustrator

    Hello all: I'm primarily a Photoshop user - mostly self taught and a contributor to the PS forum here. I've decided to add Illustrator to my workflow. I've been watching YouTube videos and searching for forums that can help me along the way. For whatever reason, most of the videos I'm finding...

    Copyright and designer property

    So working on the paid forum, often several designs are posted with different concepts. Once a design is paid, and the final files are turned over to the buyer/OP, I assume all rights to copyright are turned over as well. But what if the design/concept is turned down? Do you as designer still...

    Topaz software

    Hello all: Some years ago I had bought Topaz Simplify and Adjust when I first began fiddling with Photoshop. Although I still have the license, I haven't used that software in ages. Recently I bought Topaz Sharpen AI. Maybe my expectations were too high and I'm just not overly impressed although...

    For the last few days, when I try to connect to the forums, I get the message that the site is unavailable. I have to keep trying until finally connection or I get the message that the site is currently updating and I'll be redirected - sometimes to the page that says site is unavailable. Maybe...

    Restarting a pen path...

    I'm still on a learning curve with the pen tool but getting better at it. There is one major frustration I have and that is restarting an open path. This usually happens when I'm working on a complex path for some time, and the possibly clicking off the path, the path suddenly stops. Here's a...

    Edits, face swaps, and Nazis

    There seems to be a growing movement to identify those doctors who are trying to control a pandemic with Nazis. There was an article yesterday with people protesting the wearing of masks wearing yellow stars of David - a comparison to what the Nazis demanded Jews wear while they hauled them off...

    Working spaces for PS

    Hi all: In working with an OP's image, I saw that my edit was different in tone working in PS, but when posted, looked similar to the original OP version. Just in depth. I'll also mention that it was posted as a grayscale image. What I noticed is that when I had opened the image in PS, it...

    Moondance

    This is one I thought about for several weeks and then spent several days on it. Changed as I went along - sometimes wanted one effect but transitioned to another. Saved and resaved/ Lots of layers - probably more than I needed. :cheesygrin: - Jeff

    Waterbird

    I returned to PS about 2 years ago and have been self-learning. Been involving myself mostly in digital repairs but lately have been experimenting with composites. Sometimes it just starts with a single action and then builds from there. I don't often have a plan - it just develops as I go...

    Trashes, crashes, and dead ends

    Hi all: So Thursday evening, PS starting acting a bit forgetful - either no response or late response on edits, or hanging up entirely. By yesterday morning, when trying to launch PS, starting getting messages about missing dll's. I tried reinstalling, restarting, running disk scans and malware...

    Restoring badly discolored image

    Hello all: I find myself on the other side of the fence now with a question about restoring an image. I've tried curves, levels, hue and saturation and inverted colors but I cannot restore the badly discolored right and left sides. Although I'd prefer to save the entire image, I'm starting to...

    Problem with lighting effects

    Hi all: I'm having a problem with the lighting effects tool in PS.. Currently on Windows 7 and using PS CC version 19.1.5. I didn't upgrade to 2020 since it doesn't support Windows 7. In any case, I can open the dialog box by going to Filter - Render - Lighting Effects. I get the properties...
