Do I should hire a professional designer to create my ad just for me? Hell No!!! Designing is a learned craft and of course I do believe that everyone has creativity. What most pro-designers (defined as anyone who writes an advertisement for now, lol) do is... dig and cultivate their insane creativity.

Tablature

Who wins?Metal or rock?For me — there is no battle. Metal is just rock with a bit more distortion and attitude. And the guy that “embodies that” the most is none other than Jack Frost.He’s like a metal god with a touch of motivational speaker. Here’s some cool lessons from him showingyou one of Van Halen’s secrets: EPIC RHYTHM SECRETS.

CorelDRAW

I like CorelDraw except for this, and this could be the deciding factor as this is such an important tool. If anyone could tell me or point me in the right direction to making the CorelDraw pen tool just as flexible as the painting in white blank ordinary paper just like in school, especially (or) in this reguard...

Electronic Cigarette

In a desert of Sahara, a man sits deep in meditation. Suddenly, a wild and hungry beast approaches him. Anyone else would have run away but not him. Instead, he begins to inhale his Menthol 16mg and in minutes, the once wild and savage creature becomes as timid as a mouse. Thus is the power of smoke, Electronic Cigarette - the power that I understand.

This is not the first time that you heard about the advantages and the disadvantages of this such thing. We're gonna skip that part wisely. First things first.... Almost all smokers know and realize this, smoking isn't a quite good habit. Forget all the rules! SmokeTip.com is the online portal provides Electronic Cigarette with a huge variety of advantages compared with similar portals around the web. I'm talking about their nice Cartridge with high capacity, 2 Long Life Batteries & Charger, atomizer Built-In, Money Back Guarantee, etc.

Can you imagine.. this is new thing for me, honestly. Smoke without smoke?!?! Geeezzz.. that's awesome! It is non-flammable environmentally friendly smoking activity, beside, the price is certainly more efficient than traditional cigarettes. SmokeTip Car Charger would never run out of power with Hi-quality & works on any standard car power socket.

These are absolutely the amazing invention since the wheel. You'll go from a pack a day of lung filling tar sticks and believe me now you are about down to a half pack every 2-3 days. Isn't that good enuf for a heavy smokers like you are?!?! Am I getting off topic? Well.. what are you -smokers- waiting for? I just wanna say, just order a few atomizers. They look cool, they make lots of excellent vapor. Best of all, they'll fit on your rechargeable lithium batteries, so you don't obviously have to buy new ones!

As a part of modern lifestyle.. Shouldn't wait til you miss the information provided to apply this good smoke health opportunity. Immediately ordered it, from SmokeTip.com. Don't forget to come back later as I'll be reviewing others. See ya' then.

Simple Business Card in Photoshop

Simple Business Card in PhotoshopA great looking design can be easily created by combining various simple ways we couldn't notice before. In this tutorial we’ll look at creating a cool Business Card based around some abstract imagination I used in Card Image Gallery, some development about it, I guess lol. Then play around with a few finishing touches to really bring the design to life.

Front Card:

Well.. Open a new document in Photoshop, mine is 850×992px at 72ppi or about 29,99x35cm, however if you plan to use this for anything when you’re done. I’d recommend building it big and at 300ppi.

Fill the Layer with a solid #464545 color. Create Two folder after that. Name each folder just like I did in image below


Simple Business Card in Photoshop


First we're gonna explore our Front Card. Group One (Front Card Layer) active, create a new Layer by clicking on this little icon at the bottom of your Palette Layer.


Simple Business Card in Photoshop


Call it Out Line. We're gonna create the card its self, start by selecting the Rounded Rectangle Tool (U) with a radius of 10px,



Simple Business Card in Photoshop

Create a new fill pixel of exact 638px width and 390px height. That's our card size, 9x5,5cm. How to get the exact size of it? Press F8 to call up your Info Section. Drag from your first left corner to the right bottom corner regarding the Info.


Simple Business Card in Photoshop


Your white card selected, press Ctrl + A to Select All, hit V Key to make your image right in the center area of your workflow.


Simple Business Card in Photoshop


Now set the Blending Option for your Outline by applying a Drop Shadow and a little Color Overlay touch like the image below said;


Simple Business Card in Photoshop


I added the letter G at a large size in the background with Overlay kind of Blending Layer and 32% Opacity to create a logo type icon. Just be creative with your Front Business card, will ya'...

Create a New Layer, name it Brighter or something. Select your Elliptical Marquee Tool (M), make a white selection like this ;


Simple Business Card in Photoshop


Go to Menu Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur with 72px radius ;


Simple Business Card in Photoshop


Select and activate the Brighter Layer and set to Soft Light, Ctrl + Click on Outline Layer Thumbnail to select the outline image. Inverse the selection by pressing Shift + Ctrl + I and still.. with the Brighter layer selected, delete your inverse. Click Ctrl + D to deselect.

Our Final Front Card (Group One) is here ;

Back Card:

This is my Final design of the Back section with its Layers screenshot. How to do that?!?! Just use your brilliant steps to do whatever you wanna do.



Simple Business Card in Photoshop

Hard, but works really cool. I am so sorry to choose not finish the Back Card section, 'coz it's trully.. hard to write it all down in tut way like this. Need massive power to do this. Some steps but once you get it down it becomes much easier and it looks good.

Me My self and I.. absofuckin'lutely believe that as long as you try your best.. there is no bad or good work.. just works of art being expressed in different ways. Gorgeous. I am genial the Owner of FCDB PSD Holic, I hope y'all enjoy your time at 6raphic.

All You need is LOVE

All You need is LOVESihir. Magic. Ilusi. Atau apapun namanya, merupakan hal yang menakjubkan, yang mengagumkan.

Wanita yang terpotong dua. Tercacah 15. Dimakan Sumanto, atau siapalah dalangnya, merupakan hal yang selalu membuat kita berdecak kagum. Bagaiman halnya jika hal tersebut dilakukan oleh software Photoshop? Huahahahaha... menyebalkan!

Kira-kira seperti inilah hasilnya walau tanpa pemotongan-pemotongan bagian tubuh wanita cantik di atas panggung sana.

Business Card Image Gallery

Business CardAlthough making a profit is a role of a legal or even illegal business, it is only a way of measuring the success of a company in supplying what customers need and want. These might be the physical needs to overcome hunger and thirst of find warmth and shelter. Customers also have other needs and wants such as the desire to be accepted by family, fellas, neighbors and society generally.

When cards are totally designed, in 9cm and 5,5cm in widht and height in Indonesia, they are given bleeds if color extends to the edge of the finished cut size. This is obviously to help ensure that the paper will cut without white edges due to very small differences in where the blade cuts the cards, and it is almost impossible to cut the cards properly without.


Generally these cards will fold to the standard size as I mentioned above.




In today's global marketplace, it is not uncommon for the cards to be printed with English on one side and the local language (if not English) on the other.

How to use Brushes in Photoshop

How to use Brushes in PhotoshopHi there again fellas. When you want to create a dynamic work convey a sense of art painting in its subjects, use your wildest imagination. You know very well about Photoshoping something. You know the tools. You know how to use it wisely to get anything you want. Then use it! All you gotta do is just try and try any of possibilities you can found in your beautiful subject.

This dedicated tutorial is the main example of that style. Dedicated? Yupp, I dedicated again this to my old talented Indian photographer, Mr. Das. Hmmm... Santanu Das was asking me about how to create this particular creative background design as we can easily find in photographic studio.


This is what I'm talking about...


How to use Brushes in Photoshop


Beautiful model.. Ouchhh!!!

I'll let you in on one of the most effective and easily mastered techniques that I use to create striking, no need dynamic distortion of the subject - in this case I using the model suggested by him self, although this technique can be adapted for each objects that you want to feature your work, such as cars or trees.


How to use Brushes in Photoshop



Once you’ve picked the brushes you like and convenient to your need and created the Layer of each color you wanna paint, select the Brush tool (B) and apply separate paint strokes so that each color are on separate layers – and make sure you name each layer to find them easily.

For this exercise, I used around 7 different brush size diameter on about 15 layers, but you can use more or less depending on your image and the effect you’re after.


How to use Brushes in Photoshop



Play around with the brush diameter size and set the opacity of each layers created in low. Add some blur filter to each and voila! You've created what looks like a stain paint, but in the future, you can use a similar technique form of cutting force and distort your subject.. if you need to :p



How to use Brushes in Photoshop




Note : Shortcut of Brush size diameter is [ bricket or ] bricket.



Try to free your mind.. there's no need to be afraid of making mistakes. Remember what I've said yesterday? Now you got what I meant, such a simple way, isn't it? Do the same to scratch your other layer till you get the aim of this tut. These steps can take some time, especially at the beginning, but it’s the most important part of this visual creation of the background, so take all the time you need brotha'.



How to use Brushes in Photoshop


Learn how to make a simple easy custom brush, then use it to create vibrant, freehand paintings along the way. This is one of the manipulation result I wanted.


How to use Brushes in Photoshop


You can simply add a directional light on that sample to make it more bright or something, but I leave it as the original image said. That's obviously optional. Remember... You are ROCK and you can do this simple kinda trick!!! Take a peep for a while at How to Install and Manage Brushes and Other Presets to save easily your custom brush.

Mr. Das... If you can do this awesome trick, then you are absolutely in the right way to create image background like both images above... It is the same way. Hope this is quite helpful to you. For all my blogger friends... Additional notes?!?!? Any critics?!
