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.

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...

Rainbow Text

Rainbow TextWould you like to know how to create the Rainbow Effect on your Text with Photoshop? If yes, so, this tutorial is specialy made for you!

First thing first.. Open your new document, mine is the default size (1024x768px), then fill it with Black. After that, activate the Text Tool by pressing T on your PC. I choose AvantGarde Md BT. Keep the text on the center of your canvas by pressing Ctrl + A then press V, you can pick the option like this image below said ;



Rainbow Text



Next, you need to add different color to each letter on the text, you can't do edit it at least you resterize first the type. Right-clicking on the PELANGI layer to resterize it.

Activate your Rectangular Marquee Tool (M) to create selection on each letter. Do that on first letter, which is P in our case here, press Ctrl + Shift + J to cut selected letter and move it into the new layer later on. You can rename it by each caracter (mine is P) or you can leave it as the default. Watch the Palette Layer on the right corner of your workflow there.


Rainbow Text



D'ya remember about the song merah kuning hijau di langit yang biru?!?!? lmao!!! Apply then the Color Overlay layer style to the P layer, pick the Red first (that's the default). Press OK!


Rainbow Text



Ok, you can do the rest of the song by your self. Go back to the PELANGI layer and cut every letter (like you did to the P letter) to simply separate and make each letter in each layer with the same way. Quick apply the same Blending Options to each letter by using your own colors be in mutual accord to the song.


Rainbow Text



Note:

Red = #FF0000
Yellow = #FFF200
Green = #00FF00
Blue = #0000FF
Pink = #EC008C
Orange = #F7941D
Magenta = #FF00FF



You can delete then the PELANGI layer from your Palette Layer because it's no longer exist, it is empty now. Guys.. merge all that letters in one single layer again and name it back to pelangi!!! Lmao.. what a step!!!

Press Ctrl + J to duplicate this such layer. Go apply Filter > Blur > Motion Blur to the lower original layer with similar settings;

Angle = 90
Distance = 200 px

Note: For the Distance, it depends on your image size or your letter size. Play around with that.


Rainbow Text



Looking good, isn’t it?!?! C'mon c'mon c'mon.. Keep on creating effect, doods.. Go to the upper layer which is pelangi copy layer, then use Select > Load Selection or you can short it cut by simply press the Ctrl + Click the layer thumbnail from Palette Layer to load the selection (selection of our text line).

Next, use again the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M) and hold Alt button to cut away the lower part of selection. Nice trick isn't it?!?! Continue with pressing Shift + Ctrl + N to create new layer and name it bright section or whatever you like! Fill this selected area (and of course in the bright section layer) with white to transparent gradient color.


Rainbow Text



Easy guys, easy..!!! Turn the Opacity or bright section layer into about 50%.

Well, I don't think I’ve not pretty much explained for this time.. You've obviously finished this tutorial folks.. Good luck and thank you for reading this tutorial. Hope you enjoyed it much, even just a lil' bit.

Professional Hair Processing

Professional Hair ProcessingIf you work in an office environment, the chances are you spend the majority of your working day sitting down. Since everyone is different, we all need chairs that suit our body shapes, height and working styles if we're going to be comfortable.

That is for your need of office kinda situations. What about your self? Your fashion. Your style. Your freedom of interpreting something. Manicure-pedicure or something? Nope this time is not about that. We're gonna talk about how to make a professional processing of your hair in your boring office with Photoshop, I meant by here is your image/photograph ofcourse, lol... You can add any different shades you like and bring some shine to the hair. Sounds delicious to me.. lmao.

Ok, first thing first.. pick some appropriate picture of woman with a long hair (in case you don't have your own long hair's picture) to work with. Open it up and you can start with me along the way.


Professional Hair Processing


Here I use Catherine as my model =p~... I think we don't need the whole part of that image, so I crop it and erase the crowd behind Catherine away. Don't get me mad of this guys, you know what to do :p You can crop the Catherine out of the background by the Extraction, use the highlighter tool to cover the edges of the areas to be retained. Try Smart highlighting on well-defind edges..


Professional Hair Processing


Note : The chortcut to do the Extraction is by hitting Ctrl + Alt + X from your keyboard.


Or... you can simply use the old way (but the powerful one in my side, lol), the Pen Tool (P)


Professional Hair Processing


Is this seat taken Sir?!?! Is that way answer to your questions about it? Available to your style? Yes, I hope so. Yes can be costumised to suit a range of an instruments or tools in Photoshop.

Guys, I think the Catherine is too loud colours there... :( It's too bright, I don't really like that situation..) So I'm gonna need to make her faint and lil' bit mellow. Enter the menu Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation... or you can apply that by pressing Ctrl + U to short it cut.. and turn down the Saturation into about -39 or something.


Professional Hair Processing,


Usualy, when you intend to create this such effect with your photograph, you should first apply some shiny part of the hair, you have to bring some shine to the hair.. but this image I brought to you has have it own shiny hair, so I am going to skip the Hair Dodging section. Is it totally suck to you? hahaha..

Enuf with your perfect photograph, now we move to the next level of tuto. The coloring hair step. Create multiple spread sheet (layers) and make a color into each layer. So you can see them in different layers with different colors. Start it with Pure Red Orange >>> #f26522.


Professional Hair Processing


Have fun guys! Create four or five more color highlight there like this:


Professional Hair Processing


OK, merge all your color layers into a single one, name it as you like, mine is Colors, what about yours? (Couldn't think of anything funnier to put there folks.. Sorry, hahahaha..) and go to the menu Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur with radius 2-3 px.. Here's the way why Photoshop is called the 8th world wonderers.. Easy guys easy.. wanna prove it? OK, Change the Blending Mode to Overlay. Alakazam!!!


Professional Hair Processing


It would be absolutely more sophisticated if you Duplicate the Colors layer by pressing Ctrl + J and turn the opacity down into about 21% or something.


Professional Hair Processing


You know now what the heck am I doing with the eyes part then doods.. Here we are again. Save your work carefuly and spread the love all over the J town... I'd sure be glad to help.. as always.
