The Photoshop Training Channel has published a video detailing five Photoshop tricks and tips to help casual users of the software.
The guide covers advanced blending options, creating a precise lens flare, black and white for color control, developing high contrast clouds, controlling the luminosity of specific colors and viewing the same image simultaneously in two windows. Here’s a quick overview of the different tricks and techniques shared in the video.
#1. Advanced blending options
Uncheck “Transparency Shapes Layer” in the Layer Styles panel to make pixels blend differently when using blending options.
#2. Precise lens flare
#3. High contrast clouds
#4. Black and white for color control
#5. One image in two windows
You can have the same photo open in two windows that are side-by-side, with one view zoomed in and one view zoomed out. You can find more from the creator over in this YouTube channel.
