Vidal Sassoon’s marketing strategy seems to be “hope they focus on the hair and nothing else.” I’m really upset the model on the right isn’t the one labelled “mega volume,” “full-bodied,” or “unbelievable curves.” Opportunity missed, Vidal Sassoon, opportunity missed. Nice find Amy. The post Vidal Sassoon: Something was cut appeared first on PSD : Photoshop Disasters .

“And you may ask yourself, Well, how did I get here…?” And if you ask me, the answer will sound much like this podcast I did with Marc Edwards, Rene Ritchie, and Seth Clifford. I enjoyed wildly digressing with these guys about my semi-bizarre path to this gig, the challenges of building Photoshop & new apps, and more. I hope you enjoy it, too.

Luster and Pearl Photo Papers Recently, Finestra sent us their Premium Luster, Premium Pearl, and a sampling of their unique, metallic-coated papers. When testing a new paper, I usually download the paper profile from the manufacturer’s website and make a customized profile using X-Rite’s i1Pro; however, Finestra’s website had only lists of paper profiles by printer, nothing to download. It did show a chart recommending using other manufacturer’s profiles for their papers; for instance, Epson Luster profile for Finestra’s Luster. So, I applied Epson’s Premium Luster profile to Finestra’s Luster and Pearl papers, and compared it to my two custom profiles. (The sample of metallic paper was too small for testing.) I made all prints on an Epson 7900 using the Premium Luster media setting. The results for the Finestra Luster and Pearl papers were quite acceptable. Both papers showed a wide color gamut, good contrast, and the ability to reproduce most colors accurately. My custom profiles, however, were visibly superior; specifically, they had more shadow detail and contained accurate, vibrant, saturated colors. The custom and Epson profiles produced neutral gray tones. Both papers reproduced shadow and highlight detail—with the edge going to the Finestra Luster—and worked particularly well printing black-and-white images, with good tonal gradation and deep blacks. According to Finestra, both papers have a Dmax of 2.3–2.47, depending on which inks and printer you’re using. Finestra’s Premium Luster has a relatively smooth, reflective surface with fine stippled texture, producing a nice sheen. By comparison, the Pearl surface has a pronounced, evenly textured tooth, which has an appealing glimmer when reflecting light. Both papers have a resin-coated base and use Optical Brightening Agents, which give a bright appearance, but deteriorate over time. Available in various sizes for roll and sheet, the Luster and Pearl papers have a thickness of 10.5 and 11.5 ml, respectively, and weigh 260 and 300 gsm.

Invisibility cloak, engage! From the project site: Since Photoshop introduced the content aware fill tool, it has been familiar between several artists who used it to create different concepts. All what I had seen till now are pieces working through static images, but Zach Nader made in 2012 optional features shown, a 02:10 min video using the same tool over some commercial cars in which the texts, cars and people have been replaced by the content aware’s background. I find very interesting the glitchy movement over a constant and quiet background. [Vimeo] [Via]

Some time ago I had posted an article showing how to create a smoke effect in photoshop, and to achieve that I used a photo of smoke and some photoshop filters. However, some people had said at the time that I should have done the smoke as well and it¥s exactly what I will show on this post right now.The post Creating Smoke appeared first on Photoshop Roadmap.

Many Photoshop users are not aware of the many advantages of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. In fact, many will tell you that they aren’t really sure what it is used for and how it differs from Bridge. In this tutorial, we will explain a bit more about what Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is used for and will highlight 10 reasons that you should start using this fantastic app today. Let’s take a look! 1. Fast Access to Your RAW PhotosPrior to Lightroom, photographers and photo editors had long complained that they needed a better way to view, organize, and edit their photos. If you have ever tried to sort through hundreds or thousands of photographs without using an application like Lightroom, you probably know what a tedious process it is. So having fast access to your RAW photos is probably the biggest advantage that Lightroom will offer you.Lightroom has a smart way of linking the photographs to a catalog file, which only records the changes you make to them, but keeps the photos intact wherever they are stored. This saves a lot of processing power and storage space on your computer. You might end up having thousands or tens of thousands of high-resolution RAW photos in your catalog, but Lightroom will still be able to open it up in a couple of seconds and show all the photos together.Since Lightroom 4 you also have an interesting option called Embed Fast Load Data under the Preferences > File Handling tab. Enabling this allows Lightroom to load Digital Negative (DNG) files even faster. The only downside of it is that it makes their file size a bit bigger. DNG is Adobe’s own camera RAW file format, which is great for archiving.Lightroom can convert all kinds of Camera RAW files into DNGs easily. Lightroom is part of Creative Cloud so if you are paying for the membership you are free to download the latest version to see out how it works. The files containing all the changes and previews of photos imported into a Lightroom catalog 2. Several Ways to Add KeywordsKeywords can save you a lot of time when trying to find specific photos, but it also takes time to properly add them to all your photographs. This is another area where Lightroom really shines. Bridge is good for keywording too, but Lightroom has so much more to offer. You can apply keywords while importing photos, you can add them to groups of selected images, you can apply them quickly with the Painter tool and you can even assign keyboard shortcuts to a set of keywords. Adding keywords 3. Geo-Tagging With Built-in Google MapsThis feature was introduced in Lightroom 4 and it opened up a completely new way of organising photographs by their geographic location. If you have a GPS device in your camera then you won’t have to do anything as your photos will automatically be placed on the map in the Map module.This module uses Google Maps but you have to be online to make it work. If you don’t have GPS data saved in your photos you will have to place the photos on the map manually, but Lightroom really helps you out with its intuitive features and user interface. You can easily locate specific places on Google Maps’ search engine and then you can place photos onto the map by simply dragging and dropping them.You can even set up Saved Locations for places that you visit often, which will again save you time when tagging your photos. The great thing about manual tagging is that Lightroom will automatically write a lot of useful information into the metadata of your photos, like the Country, City and Sublocation. These all come handy when you are filtering your catalog. Using the Map module to geo-tag photos 4. On-Image EditingA great feature in Lightroom is the On-image editing tool, which looks like a small circle with an arrow above it and another one below it. You can find this tool under the Tone Curve and the HSL / Color / B&W panels. By selecting it you can apply local adjustments by targeting specific parts of your photos. It make
