Community-powered Lightroom help goes live
Adobe has launched the new Lightroom community help system, which provides core Adobe documentation for Lightroom as well as links to additional learning content from around the web. The new site takes the current online helpLiveDocsand makes it more useful and interactive. You can still navigate to topics using links the left side of the browser.
But now, when you click a topic to read about it, you’ll find a Basics panel with Adobe documentation as well as a Learn More panel that offers links to tutorials, white papers, technical articles, and other instructional content.
FILTER-FREE ART IN PHOTOSHOP

How To: Get Mondrianum Working in Photoshop
If you haven’t heard of Mondrianum yet, it’s a neat little (shareware) plugin for Photoshop (Mac only) that adds Adobe’s Kuler color combinations to the Apple color picker. It doesn’t just work in Photoshop. After installing Mondrainum, it works system-wide with any Mac app that uses the Apple color picker, like iLife, iWork, etc. Granted, most Photoshoppers probably don’t prefer the Apple color picker over Adobe’s, but if you are ever in need of a little color inspiration with the help from Kuler, it can come in handy. I’ll show you how to get it working in Photoshop.
Creating A Cool Vintage Collage Design In Photoshop
In this tutorial I will show you how to create a retro style design or vintage collage style. We will use images from old ads, handwritten texts, patterns, and other things to give to our design a vintage look.
Creating A Fantastic Fantasy Night Sky In Photoshop
Last month while I was selecting some images for a post to my blog I found an amazing design created by Nik Ainley, one of my favorite Photoshop masters. He had created some incredible clouds using Photoshop. I thought to myself, "damn that's really cool, I have to know how to do something like that!" So, in this tutorial I will show you how to create cartoon style clouds using Photoshop and a bit of Illustrator.
Creating a Photoshop Action
Are you in the mood for some Action? I’m talking Photoshop Actions :) They are the perfect solution to handle tasks with one click. An Action is a recording of several Photoshop operations and commands. Once the Action is created, one click is all it takes and the task will be excecuted. It’s very powerful, can save you heaps of time and it’s actually not that hard to create. Oh and before someone asks, this tutorial is written for version CS3. Certain things might be different in previous Photoshop versions.
Softening Nighttime Shots With Gaussian Blur
Sometimes the harshness of night illumination shows too many facial blemishes. Since you have the power, why not remove them? Cloning them out can work for individual marks, but for overall appearance, creating a soft mask for the face provides the subject with a pleasant appearance. This technique requires a duplication layer of the image, a Gaussian blur, and some careful cutouts. The intensity of the effect can be controlled via the layer Opacity setting.
Photoshop World Conference & Expo Set for April in Orlando
The annual east coast Photoshop World Conference & Expo will be held at the Orange County Convention Center South, in Orlando, Florida. More than 100 classes will be available during the three days, taught by such names as Bert Monroy, Taz Tally, Eddie Tapp, Vincent Versace, Terry White, Ben Willmore and Moose Peterson. The conference will also feature a three-day Tech Expo, portfolio reviews by Photoshop World instructors, a live filming of PhotoshopUser TV, 12 pre-conference sessions, and bonus workshops by Kelby Training, Adobe and Microsoft.
Episode 66: Crossing the Process
Cross Processing has been a popular photographic technique for many years and with the innovation of digital tools the look of cross processed photos has become even more popular. There are many plug-ins and tools out there that will help you achieve an effect such as this, but all of those tools require more time and money than I am willing to spend.
Luckily when I was poking around in the curves dialogue box I actually found a preset that does a very nice job of "cross processing" a photograph. Add this as an adjustment layer and you've got yourself a kick-butt technique, and most importantly a non-destructive effect!

Did You Know You Could Create An Entire Website In Photoshop?
SiteGrinder Photoshop Plugin - Create Websites Instantly
There often seems to be a strict division of labor within the world of web design and development. Creative professionals tend to stick to the Photoshop domain, while those well-versed in scripting are left to the task of implementing their work. Indeed, the two realms are quite different from each other, to which any of us even vaguely familiar with either can easily attest.
Essentially, Photoshop is a no-holds-barred design studio, offering the artist a seemingly endless array of creative options. On the other hand, HTML, CSS, Java and the like follow strict rules of engagement, requiring the developer to take any number of esoteric concerns into consideration in order to ensure that designs are properly displayed on the web.
Turn Photoshop Into A Complete Web Design Tool
SiteGrinder seeks to bridge this gap between design and development. Basically, SiteGrinder turns Photoshop into an easy-to-use and fully functional web design tool. With SiteGrinder, designers will now have the freedom to totally let their creativity loose and then, without skipping a beat, transfer their designs to the web. Bringing esthetic concerns together with more practical considerations, SiteGrinder is an amazingly powerful tool that would make a fantastic addition to any web designer's bag of tricks. Mac OS X and Windows versions of the SiteGrinder unlockable demo are available now via download.
