Semi Pro Techniques On Episode 126 of Photoshop User TV

Photoshop User TV Episode 126

In this week’s Photoshop User TV, Scott Kelby has a tutorial on using the Lens Blur in Photoshop CS3 to selectively apply focus on a specific part of an image. It’s a little lame, but, hey, it can come in handy sometime in the future – very very far off in the future.

Dave Cross demonstrates a complicated looking trick in Photoshop for creating a web banner template that can accommodate variable text and photo contents, in this example the photos of people change with their corresponding names and titles. This method can also be applied for example in business cards where the names, titles and addresses of individuals change while the company logo and other graphics stay the same. Very useful, Dave. Thanks.

Matt Kloskowski shows us how to navigate through an image so that you don’t miss a spot. In this example, Matt is cleaning up an image in zoomed in view using the clone tool. Using the Cmd or Ctrl key in conjunction with the Page Up and Page Down keys ensures that you get your image thoroughly covered.
