    Well I am fairly new here and just thought I'd post something I took today with my new Minolta A1 and played with in P'shop using some of my favorite tricks....radial blur and the fade command. Anyone ever use these?

    This is a very unique application of radial blur, Deb, a filter I don't use very often. I use Fade, however, quite a bit.

    How are you using the Fade command in this case? To back off the effect or to apply it in a different blend mode?

      I almost always use the Fade command in a different blend mode to add depth photos. I think this is one of my favorite features. I love playing with layer masks in different blend modes too.

      Its nice being able to 'talk shop' here! People actually know what I'm talking!

        Using Fade effect
        by jbruceb
        I have tried Richard's impressive new tools, but I can't seem to make Fade effect do anything special. As Richard suggested this is used in Photoshop after a filter to lessen its effects.

        PS cs *custom* blend modes?
        by hizaam
        Forgive me if I'm not using the correct term, blend modes. {normal, hard light, luminosity,etc}

        Is there a way to create one's own PS layer blend modes? So one could have the other nifty blend modes featured in Corel PhotoPaint or those from waaay back in Kai's Power Tools v2?

        Using the Difference blend mode in Photo-based Art
        by DannyRaphael
        Confession #1:
        O.K. I admit it. For over a year I failed repeatedly to find useful uses for the Difference layer blend mode during numerous flails at generating Photo-art.

        Out of some sense of misplaced obligation I’d give Difference (as well as Exclusion) a try each time I...

        Tutorial (link): Posterization that's Flexible
        by DannyRaphael
        Ran across this one while surfing tonight.

        I wrote an action (attached) based on the concept that piles on a few adjustment layers for ultimate tweaking flexibilty. Kind of a fun toy if you need something new to play with....
