Smile herez is mine with blend mode - difference

sorry if i am repeating that
----------------------------

on a white background canvas

draw with brush - white colour and difference blend mode selected

then on the screen you will find white colour instead of black because of difference blend mode

now you can again paint with white colour selected or any other colour

......
have fun with photoshop

Sorry if it was already mentioned bit this one is really good - it adds functionality rather than just doing something quicker.

with Levels (ctrl l), press alt as you adjust white and black points. It will give you a new display mode of your image showing clipping and has colour feedback to show what channels remain unclipped. If you know your primary and secondary color theory you will see what I mean.

Cool Transforming and Copying at The Same time

Generally when you apply transformation to an object you apply the transformation to the object itself. A cool tip if you want apply transformation on a duplicate of you object is Command-Option-T (PC: Control-Alt-T, then use transform like you usually would. Notice that the original object remains untoched and a copy is transformed instead!

Hope you guys liked!

Typographically Incorect Spaces

If you are trying to set the type to set type that looks typographically correct in Photoshop there is an old trick you will have to break; putting two spaces at the end of every sentence. To fix this problem follow these steps:



- Go under the Edit menu and choose Find and Replace Text.

- In the Find field press spacebar twice, then in Change To, press the space bar just once.

- - Click Change All, and every time that Photoshop finds two spaces at the end of the sentence, it will replace it with just one, making you typographically correct.

I think that tips like number 1 should also include how to undo that action, otherwise someone like me might have to spend hours trying to get back to normal.

Otherwise an interesting list, which I will now study more closely.

I didn't get a monkey, I got this:-

By the way I suppose everybody already knows that if you have the move tool selected clicking on the left, right, up and down arrows will move that layer one pixel in the arrow's direction?

Hit Ctrl+Shift+Alt+T 10 times and see what happen!! I have just found it last week. I used to think this can only be done in illustrator.

I hope that helps...............


Er.... what's supposed to happen?

I diligently created a 500x500 new image - faithfully painted my dot at 12 o'clock, managed the transform somehow - took ages to findout where the degrees were so I could get exactly 30 degrees, expectantly did the "Ctrl+Shift+Alt+T 10 times" bit, and peered intensely at my Photoshop screen.... but nothing happened, nothing I could see anyway.

Is there a step missing?
