Common Troubleshooting Issues Part 2

uh, if you end up converting an image to see him, why came out because you need it to be printed on a printing press? Then you have to be careful. One of the things that people do when they convert to seem like a mode is they'll have a nice, vivid colors in their picture. They'll go over here and choose image mode. Seemed like a It asked them this question, which is? Do you want to flatten the image or not? They say No, I still want toe might want to tweak my layers so they say, Don't flatten. And then when they complete it, the image looks different. And usually it's where vivid colors fade out to something else. If I choose undo, watch this image. Do you see how vivid the greens were? That's what they look like. An RGB. Once I got to see him, Why can't look like this? Well, what I would say is, if you have a layered document that's an RGB mode. You need to have it end up in seem like a mode, if at all possible. When you go over here and choose image mode seem like a, there's a reason...

why it asked this question. If you want to flatten your image or not, and that's because if it combines the layers together, will the images is still in RGB mode? The quality of the result will usually look better. And if you choose, don't flatten. It's not gonna have is good or smooth transitions where one layer fades out into another. So that's why it always ask you when you convert to see him like a choose the choice called flatten and the end result will usually look better. So this is in C N y que mode. And when flattening the image on the way. If I choose, undo here it was an RGB. I can't see any difference compared to see him like a often times. It has to do with people trying to retain the layers that make up their image, even though they might not end up tweaking them the district minions. But there's a reason why it asks you when you convert to seem like a and if it all practical, flatten your image in that process because oftentimes it will make your end result look better. Uh, other things that can mess you up if you come in here in, certain adjustments are great out, and certain tools just don't seem to work. Oftentimes what happens is you accidentally bumped the letter Q. On your keyboard when you bump the letter Q on your keyboard, then you've turned on quick mask mode. And then whatever it is, you're doing your image like, let's say I click on a layer here and I try to blur that layer. And even if I bring blurring way up, it doesn't do anything to that layer. And I'm like, What the heck it's not. Do anything. Well, the most common reason why it wouldn't do anything is there would be a selection active. I go to the Selectmen. You de select is not available. That means there is no selection on my screen, so let's switch layers back and forth. I want to blur this layer. It's just not doing anything. Well, it's because quick mask modus turned on quick mask mode is where I'll turn it off right now is where If you had a selection like this one and you type a letter Q, it would turned onto a red overlay. And now whatever you're doing involves that read over like So when I come over here and tried to blur something, it's trying to blur that red overlay. It just happened to be. I had nothing selected at the time that I turned quick mask on, and therefore no Red was showing up. Yet it's still trying to change that overlay. It's just that there was no red appearing, so I couldn't tell I was in that mode. And so what I would do is when you find things like filters having no effect whatsoever, it could be the preview check box has not turned on. But the second thing would be just glanced down here and see if that's been pushed in. If it's pushed in like it is right there, it means you have quick mask mode. Turn on either click the icon or typed letter Q a second time to get rid of quick mask mode and then try whatever you were doing again. Sometimes the feature called Auto Select Layers messes me up. In fact, most the time it does the default setting has this setting. If I'm in my move, tool turned on, and sometimes I'm out here, trying to target a layer like here. These leaves and I click on it and just done work, and I try to grab these little feet and in the layers panel. I'm not seeing any of these things getting targeted, and that's because there is a layer that covers your entire picture it like a texture, and it's in a blending mode that happens to make most of it disappear. Or it could be the at. The opacity has turned now, but it just needs. There's a layer that's filling the entirety of your document, and it's most likely in a blending mode that makes it not show up very much. So I would just need to delete this layer were turned off its eyeball, and then I should be able to target other layers. So look at whatever your top most layer is and then turn off its eyeball temporarily. So then you can target other layers to move them, and when you're done moving those layers, feel free to turn that top layer back on. But any time you apply textures, that's gonna max up using the auto select layer feature. Let's see here whenever you stitch a panorama. There is an issue you can encounter and let's see if I can get it to show up. Take me just a moment to find appropriate images for this. But what happens is that the, um, Photoshopped tries to draw your picture very quickly on screen in sometimes in the process of doing so, it makes it so what you see on screen is not as accurate is what is actually in your file here. I'm going to select a series of images, and I'm going to use something here called photo Merge to merge them together into a panorama. And let's see if I happen to get these artifacts and they're not always going to be a parent. So depends on the picture. But let's see if they show up on this particular result. Unfortunately, not. But what will happen on occasion is when you stitch a panorama, you're gonna find what I call worms, which are these little kind of lines that you concede exactly where the edge of one layer ends in the where the next layer begins. And it looks like a little Jaggi line that, um, looks like a low quality and result When you do that after stitching a panorama, it's not truly an issue with your picture. If you were to zoom up on your image to 100% view so you can see the actual fine detail within your image, you would find that those little things after stitching a panorama aren't truly in your picture. Instead, it's just that you have a multi layer document here. If you look in my layers panel, you'll see the multi layer and that it's just trying to very quickly composite these on screen, and in the process, it's not always perfectly precise. All you need to do is go to the layer menu and choose merge visible. And if you ever do see those little almost looks like a crack going through your image after sticking stitching a panorama, it will completely go away if you merge those layers together. And so I wanted to mention that because it's a very common question that I get when people stitch panoramas

I am an avid reader of photoshop books, and an avid watcher of photoshop tutorials. I have attended (internet) several hundred of presentations. In the course of this endeavor, I have found my own favorite photoshop websites and instructors. Creative Live is probably the bargain out there as well as among the top three internet course sites. I have to say with great enthusiasm that the best Photoshop instructor is Ben Willmore. There are many great ones, but truly, he is the best I have come across, and, as indicated above, I have watched literally 100s of tutorials on Photoshop. I have seen all of Ben's courses, I think, and among them, this one is the best by far, and that is saying a lot, because that makes this course the best course on Photoshop to be found anywhere. I am going back and watching it twice. Not only is it comprehensive, but Ben is so familiar with his subject that he is able to explain it like no other. This is crème de la crème of Photoshop classes. I have been wanting to write this review for some time because I have been so thoroughly impressed with everything about this class!

Highly recommended if you want to take your Photoshop skills to the next level. Ben Willmore is clear, concise, and professional. He also has a good speaking voice that is not distracting but also keeps you engaged. Lastly, I would recommend that as you become more advanced, increasing the speed of the video (one of the options given on the menu)...especially if you've gone through the course once before and maybe want to watch it again. The double speed is very efficient as you become more advanced in Photoshop. Thanks for the help Ben!

Wow. I cannot communicate the value of this course!! The true value in this course is how the instructor identifies workflows you'll need before you'll ever realize it, repeats important information without it becoming annoying, and explains the "why" behind the techniques so well that even if you forget the exact method, you can figure it out via the principles learned. Excellent value, excellent material, excellent instructor!!!
