Re: RetouchPRO Tutorial Contest, October 2006

Hi Frank.

I tried IE. But when I click the ‘Insert Picture’ button I get a bleep but the Picture dialog box does not open. I think it may be something to do with popups blocked.

Ken.

EDIT.

I sorted it. Firefox would Not upload the images. I got IE to upload them after I switched off the popup blocker.

Thanks.

Floras tutorial "Lighten Shadows"

Hey that was a great tutorial and thanks for posting it, Flora. I'm going to use that all the time. Just wondering...When you use Apply Image + Difference blending mode what represents the blend color and what represents the base color.

From Photoshop Help files

"Difference Looks at the color information in each channel and subtracts either the blend color from the base color or the base color from the blend color, depending on which has the greater brightness value. Blending with white inverts the base color values; blending with black produces no change."

... If I have understood correctly the PS help file on this ... (but not sure about it.. ) ... I would say that the base colour is represented by the 'colours' of the blue Channel wich I used as source ... and the pure white mask represent the blend colour .... but it could be exactly the opposite!!!

Re: RetouchPRO Tutorial Contest, October 2006

It's the other way around.

If you think of how the blending modes work on layers, the blending layer is the one on top and the base layer is the one below. Applying images is similar, the blending color is from the image you are applying and the base color is from the one you are applying it to.

In this example, you are applying the blue channel (blend) to the white mask channel (base). In difference mode, blending with white inverts so, in effect, what you have done is to simply load the levels adjustment layer mask with an inverted copy of the blue channel.

Flora's tutorial

Well thanks for the explanation. I guess I will fiddle some with Layer Masks and try out Apply Image and Layer Style Blending Options and Blending modes. Thank goodness I don't have to work.

Re: RetouchPRO Tutorial Contest, October 2006

We're coming up on the final week for tutorial entries. If you've been waiting for the last minute to publish yours, it's time to look at your watch. Or, if you've been letting the ideas percolate before writing, it's time to get pouring. Or any other metaphor you like.

Sorry Doug, but that tut has totally avoided me, still trying to come to grips with the concept and implementation, but I will not give up easily!
