The Color Picker in Photoshop – f64 Academy

Let’s get to some basics, the color picker

Photoshop is such a massive program it can be very easy to get lost in all of its intricacies.  With so many features and bells and whistles, it is very easy for us to get used to one tool and know it very well. All the while we can very easily glance over the basic tools and often take them for granted, like the color picker.

I recently published a tutorial that showcased the difference blend mode.  During the tutorial, I spent quite a bit of time in the color picker within Photoshop.  After the tutorial was all said and done, I received an email asking me about the color picker and why theirs looked different.  After a look at a screenshot form them I could see that a different radio dial had been selected before my tutorial.  That clued me in that I have yet to discuss this intricate tool and cover all of the little facets of color selection.

At first glance, it looks like a tool to select a color.  However, there is a lot of useful information packed into all the ones and zeros there.  In this tutorial, I will break it down for you so you can make better color selections.

Saving Your Scene using Free Transform in Photoshop

Fix your scene with Free Transform

Saving Your Scene using Free Transform in Photoshop

I made my first trip to Scotland about a year and a half ago. On the first stop of the first day, I took a shot that I was sure was going to be epic. It turned out to be not so epic at all. I used a wide angle lens for something that really needed a longer focal length and the shot was far less than what I had hoped for. Free Transform to the rescue!

Photoshop allowed me to not only rescue the shot but to actually make it better than it would have been had I shot it “properly”. I was struck by the way the mountain in the shot dominated the scene and if I had used a different focal length the mountain would have certainly been big but the shot would have lost its impact because of the lack of context and scale. When I got home and saw the file I was disappointed but I also remembered what drove me to press the shutter button in the first place. That was the vision that I needed to recapture in post-processing…

Photoshop Blend Modes Explained – Photo Blog Stop

by Robert Thomas

Working with blend modes is almost always an experimental process. Because it’s nearly impossible to predict the results, you always seem to end up experimenting with different modes and Fill Opacities until you get the results you’re looking for.

In this article I’m going to give you a high-level view of what the various blend modes do, and then I’ll dig deeper into the nuts and bolts of the blend modes by explaining some of the math involved, and their interrelationships with each other. I’m not going to “show” you how the blend modes work—I’m going to “explain” how they work. By the time you finish reading this article, you should have a better idea of how to use blend modes and where to begin your “experimentation,” which in turn should reduce the time it takes to achieve the results you’re looking for.

Blake’s 3 Favorite Features of the Zone System Express 5 – f64 Academy

It’s not “just another Photoshop Panel”, it’s a workflow solution, a mindset shift!

Over the last three years, Blake has been refining his editing process using the Zone Systems.  What started out as an idea evolved into an actionable sequence of layers designed to get you in and out of Photoshop with the best results in the least amount of time.  While time savings was the intention, the resulting Digital Zone System created masterpieces with a fraction of the effort.   It quickly became apparent that the System was a photo workflow workhorse.  The only real problem was that the system was based on actions in Photoshop.  While actions are powerful, they can be convoluted, confusing to beginners, and daunting to open and close everytime you want to use them.  There was a need for something better, something more efficient, more accurate, and more deliberate.
