    Default PS Tutorial

    Lets start some basic functions
    Currently I'm using PS CS3




    Now create image size you want
    so I use 600 x 150




    Then select any background image you want to put it in your little project
    *Note: Original Image is not blur ^^ later for advance





    Next drag the image your going to use its better to use renders because its easy to put no more erasing

    like this one



    To this

    ^^ sig taken already



    Although this one kinda advance a little but its easy
    See that arrow in the image its says "Screen" its makes the image to become lighter or transparent to use as my lighting effect
    *Note: try experimenting it ^^ because its fun to play




    The rest is history ahahahahaha joke

    Image Source: DeviantArt
    In Photoshop you will learn new if you EXPERIMENT using other functions

    Image Alteration




    Time to learn to alter some images you have



    Lets start in Hue / Saturation from Image > Adjustment > Hue / Saturation for short its CTRL + U



    Its fun to use Hue / Saturation coz its fun to make different color outcomes like this one
    You just move the sliders Hue ; Saturation ; Lightness
    Hue = the color outcome
    Saturation = how much color to fill less Saturation it will become colorless ; more saturation its like you spilled to much coloring on it
    Lightness = common sense ^^ light or dark of the image


    Sharpen and Blur

    Now you already know color image alteration; Sharpen and Blur combination
    In Photography this is known as Focusing ^^




    From Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen
    Dont be scare of using some of the functions of Filter Im just lazy to tell every function its way too many ^^ anyway

    Sharpen I use to make the image refine the edges of the image




    Just observe carefully the application of Sharpen to see the difference with and without

    *Note: Dont too much Sharpen its bad ^^ you will see edges of the images

    Next Blur



    Same tab: Filter > Blur > Blur Motion
    You see the effect of Blur its Cool ^^ especially if you have C4D effects image for better outcome
    Anyway

    Next is Apply Image



    This one can be use when you are about to finish everything especially if you have a lot of layers you used
    Its pretty easy just click it then there are drop down boxes there just try experimenting


    Focusing Style
    A while ago I mentioned about Focusing in Photography if you dont have any SLR Camera not the point to shoot camera; the Camera use by Professional Cameramen in modeling etc....

    Lets Begin



    Now get any image with a background already





    Now use the Blur brush from the tools on the left
    *Note: I forgot to put the arrow anyway by Right Clicking it will display other function like Blur ; Sharpen ; Smudge



    Now you click the Blur Brush now just Blur the background image except the Focus Target (I mean the person)
    Just carefully Blur the image not to blur the Target
    If you cant brush it make the diameter smaller by doing it just right click in the image while the blur brush is on then move the slider or input the __px value

    After blurring all the background then apply Sharpen
    Then you have already Focusing Method/Style

    Rendering

    Time to learn how Render images (removing the background of a certain image)
    Lets start some image, pick any images you want. For starters use small images, for ADV. users go big like wallpapers or something ahahahahaha

    Well anyway this image has less curves and hair curves its like everything is almost straight line



    Lets start, Im using Pen Tool for better rendering. Some use Magnetic Lasso also a good one but its uncontrollable, we will go manual way. Click the Pen Tool and then Click Paths



    Just click anywhere you want to render (When you click and drag it will create an arc kinda hard but effective in long and short curves ^^; ) and start rendering all the border of the character
    Now if you want to make a curves just click into small intervals to make an arc
    The CTRL + Click and Drag is use for small adjustments



    Now this is the result of rendering the border of the character



    Now to close, just click the Starting Point to connect the current point to close it



    Then after closing it, right click then select make a selection then click.



    Adjust the Feather Radius by 0.1 px or 0.2 px then click OK



    Then CTRL + C ( copy ) the image the click New File again



    In the New File, change the Background Contents into Transparent, and the image size is automatic since you Copy the image a while ago then click OK




    CTRL + Click the image in Layers to load the selection, then click Select then Modify then click Contract
    and finally click Select again then click Inverse (Shift + CRTL + I) then hit Delete so clear all the dirt around the image ^^ then De-select it



    To save just follow the image ahahahahaha, just change the Format into PNG





    Coloring is F U N


    Welcome to the Manga Coloring Session
    Well not only manga, any coloring books will do ahahaha ^^

    im using gimp for a long time now its olmust the same as photoshop i just got the new adobe anyway so i have CS-5 & GIMP Gimp is free but CS-5 is not so for starters i think most poeple will be better off trying gimp first before they buy photoshop :)

    or you can just download it offcourse

    oh ok thats nice xiety although i started with GIMP compared to you i sound pathetic :( anyway i thought it would be smart for starters but it seems you can start with CS2 and then go on to the other versions :)

    lol dont rush things
    if you have time try exploring the tools then experiment things

    In PS you should know how to experiment images try different effects or tools

    Explore the workplace first
