  • Nice work! I'll show it to the client, who at this point, I've talked into drop shadows. If they like it and will pay for it, I'll send you the work if you want.

    I'm way over my estimate on this one and can't afford to put any more time into it.

    THANK YOU, EVERYONE, for...

    You will not get the same lattitude as negative or chrome film. Just like with film, the conditions matter so I'm not going to try and quote lattitudes in stops but think of it like you're shooting chrome and you'll be in the right range. If you shoot camera RAW files vs. JPEGs or TIFs you will have...

  • That's a good idea, I tried some similar things but it ends up being too much manipulation for 20 images.

    Since my last post I've gotten a little further by converting a selection of the shadow to a path and selecting all the points except the feet and transforming that but it's still...

  • Yep, if I'm reading you right, you're thinking the same thing I thought. You can align the legs but you can't join the shadow to the table legs at all four feet. The thumbnail illustrates the problem. When you flip the filled outline (shadow), the feet which were furthest from the foreground (the back...

    Casting shadow from 3d object

    I need some help, my brain just locks up on this one but it seems their should be a way.

    I need to cast a backlit shadow (I know, it looks hokey but that's what the client wants) from the massage table into the foreground.
    The attached JPEG has a flipped and rotated version on...

  • I shoot product frequently...

    - What's been said is right, plan ahead and shoot on the preferred BG if possible, that's especially true with transluscent objects.
    - For small product, shoot on white plexiglass and shoot some light, not much, up through the plex to eliminate shadow....

    replied to Single jobs that bill at over $100
    I guess being in a historic town makes a difference, maybe it's the storefront; I'm not sure. I can't think of a single digital restoration job that we've billed at less than $100.00. Now that does include prints, usually multiple 8x10 and 5x7.
    We don't get easy restorations though, typically...

  • I do most things righthanded but have a tendancy to do right brained things lefty. I draw lefthanded... usually; I write right-handed. I shoot a camera with my left eye; I shoot a rifle with my right eye. When driving, skating or kayaking my strong side is my left. I throw a ball with my right hand....

    replied to P-shop 7.0 problem
    Make sure you ditch the Prefs file too; I don't think it gets deleted even when you uninstall. Mine is located here (Windows XP, PS7):

    C:\Documents and Settings\chip\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop\7.0\Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Settings\Adobe Photoshop 7.0 Prefs.psp

    You can...

    replied to Thanks to you all
    I've just started on her new book, 'Photoshop Masking and Compositing'. Looks to be as good as 'Restoration and Retouching', very detailed, tons of examples.

    replied to PC Vs MAC ?
    ...what they all said.

    For my personal machines I've migrated back and forth between PCs and Macs; my first PC was an 8088 (PC/XT) and my first Mac was a IIcx. It was on the IIcx that I learned Photoshop... 2.1 I think.

    I have always enjoyed USING a Mac more but I strongly...

    replied to Unusual perspective problem
    I don't think you can make this one work out to a true flat perspective because the camera was both tilted and away from the midpoint. If you had one or the other you could use a vertical or horizontal line as a reference and correct it. Correcting convergence in Photoshop is useful and can make the...

  • I'm not strict about it but I usually get the exposure and color right first, then I work on anything else that needs changing. When I know what I'm doing with it (web, offset print, inkjet, etc.), I adjust the image size and resolution and then sharpen last.
