    I look forward to many more

          Nice contribution!
          This could be very useful for recreating a nice background.

            Great tutorial - the best effects are always the ones that are easily overlooked

                Simpler Technique for Blending Two Images
                by gmitchel
                I posted a tutorial that describes a simple technique for blending two exposures. I read about the technique briefly in a tutorial by Michael Reichmann on his site ( and he credited it to George DeWolfe of CameraArts's Magazine.

                Briefly, the technique uses a...

                Having just finished a job which involved turning a snapshot of a rather grubby young lad into a studio portrait, I thought I should share a little technique that comes in useful sometimes.

                Problem here was that the young lad's shirt was all creased, and blurring wasn't an option because...

                Converting from color to B&W
                by jeaniesa
                I know that this topic has been discussed multiple times, but here's yet another great technique for converting color to B&W. It's copyrighted by Russell Brown and fairly detailed, so I don't think I can just post the details here. But here is a link to a PDF file describing the technique. And...

                silhouette technique?
                by christo
                Years ago, I cam across a great tutorial on PhotoShop that outlined a relatively quick and easy way to turn photographs into quality B&W silhouette images. Does anyone know where I can find this technique or something like it?
